Quick Review: “Stuffed & Ready” by Cherry Glazerr

In the short time span of just a few years, there have been so many line-up changes within the American rock band Cherry Glazer, that it has become basically a one-woman project. Singer and guitarist Clementine Creevy, who’s the undisputed leader of the band, is also the only member of the original formation. Actually, it’s only thanks to her dedication and efforts that the band managed not only to cope with such a continuous alternation of supporting musicians but also to keep writing and recording catchy and cheerful indie rock songs.

On the early days of February, Cherry Glazer have dropped their third LP, Stuffed & Ready, which features a good combination of indie and garage rock, conveying an enjoyable sense of immediacy and authenticity. And even if we’re not dealing with particularly memorable and profound pieces, it’s very easy to be influenced by the rebellious and slightly sarcastic spirit of these songs, also because the new record shows a tangible shift towards indie pop sounds which certainly guarantees a more direct and immediate impact, at least in the short term.


Stuffed & Ready is a nice album, with a number of particularly intriguing and catchy songs (like That’s Not My Real Life, Stupid Fish and the single Juicy Socks). In more general terms, one of the most enjoyable aspects of the LP is the apparent ease with which Clementine Creevy manages to play motifs for her guitar that stick to your hears and which result, in most of the cases, extremely nice and engaging. There are no deep harmonic progressions or virtuosities, but rather short riffs and simple choruses that you’ll start to enjoy, and to hum, since the very first listenings. Which is really what you expect from this genre of music. In this sense, I’m giving to Stuffed & Ready a convinced rating of 7/10.


The album is available on Bandcamp and it can be streamed also from Spotify.
