Primitives at Ion Magazine

Acts that are on the legend tour are notoriously disappointing, unless of course you go to VH1 for your contemporary content. The Primitives’ new release is a shocking treat, maintaining their songwriting chops, and cashing in on a resurgence of dream pop, with younger bands name checking The Primitives as influences giving them a bump not unlike that time Morrissey was photographed wearing one of their shirts. Spin-O-Rama is an upbeat gem of a full length that can be enjoyed by both young fans of current jangle bands, and middle-aged moms who used to get down to “Crash” on a mix tape sandwiched between the Pointer Sisters and Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere”. Skepticism on a comeback record 22 years later is justified given these types of bands’ track record, but giving this record a shot will not disappoint.
