Hello Tokyo/The Frustrations/Five Four @ R&R Hotel

Three female-fronted groups will be having their respective CD release parties this Saturday night (4/26) at the Rock and Roll Hotel. Power poppers Hello Tokyo (above) will be dropping in from Brooklyn to play with local horn-laced rockers The Frustrations and ethereal-voiced indie poppers Five Four.

I’m really digging The Frustrations’ track “Everyone Loves A Winner” – it’s kind of like female-fronted 60s riffy garage rock with a horn section thrown in for good measure. I’ve been waiting for Hello Tokyo’s new CD Sell the Stars to finally drop, and we’ve got the track “Steady the Gun” from it below, along with one of my favorite classics of theirs, “Radio.” And Five Four has got a danceable 80s pop vibe going on their track “Creepy Cool Ways,” mixing in flourishes of electronic beats.
