THE YUM YUMS
FOR THOSE ABOUT TO POP!
Rum Bar (CD)

Genre: Power Pop

The fifth album from Norway’s Yum Yums continues in the grand tradition of their previous, uniformly excellent, releases: simple, speedy and satisfying power pop that comes off like The Archies and The Beach Boys collaborating with The Ramones in the late Greg Shaw’s basement. 

Morten Henriksen’s tunes are sweet as candy and memorable as all get out, and song titles such as “Summertime Pop,” “Bubblegum Baby” and the title track clue the listener in to The Yum Yums’ raison d'être.
