On the Radar: We Can’t Enjoy Ourselves

We Can’t Enjoy Ourselves don’t produce the typical New York jangle pop – their brand is saucy & reckless, like a combination of The Smiths and Pavement (whose song ‘We Dance’ perhaps their name references).  Their bio states: “There once was a band in New York called We Can’t Enjoy Ourselves. They were young, energetic, and happy; one day they abandoned their matronly motown shuffle for the sake of a younger genre; they loved, but they were not loved. Their lives ended in disaster.”  The 7-song EP One Belongs Here More Than You is available for ‘pay what you want’ on bandcamp.  My favourite tracks are ‘Hanging with the Brutes’ – a wide-open obtuse rocker – and ‘Raincoats Coax the Rain’.
