Cd Review-The Pipettes-We are the Pipettes

Cd Review-The Pipettes-We are the Pipettes

By Sara Pintilie/entertainment editor

thepipettesThe Pipettes’ American debut, We are the Pipettes, is a fun album with heavy nostalgic beats.

The Pipettes (pronounced pip-ettes) hail from England and follow in the footsteps of the likes of Amy Winehouse (musically, not socially).

But unlike Winehouse’s sultry blues and R&B, these girls (RiotBecki, Rosay and Gwenno) delve into the fluffy pop songs of the ‘60s.

The sound they put out is a lot like The Shirelles with a hint of The Go-Gos.

The album is light, no politics or social commentary here, just a trio of girls singing about the woes of those Danny Zuko types.

The whole album has a school-girl enthusiasm surrounding it and makes the listener smile.

Their first single, “Your Kisses Are Wasted on Me,” is an energetic tune with a beat worth clapping to.

The rest of the tracks are pretty much in the same vein of sound.

Only “We Are the Pipettes” deviates into a more modern era of music.

The Pipettes might be a one-trick pony, but they make it interesting.

We Are the Pipettes is pop in a pure unadulterated form and definitely worth checking out.

Noteworthy Tracks: “Your Kisses Are Wasted on Me,” “Pull Shapes” and “We are the Pipettes.”
