about

Two brothers from Winston Salem, NC who've been playing garage pop together for the past year, THE SWEETS have been baking up a sticky mess of music despite going to different schools a few hundred miles apart. The duo wrote and recorded almost 50 original tracks in 2013, varying in styles from loud and fast garage punk to hushed and supple bedroom pop, so we took the best of both to release as the Greatest Hits. The A-side showcases tenacious tracks hot enough to set the garage aflame, while the B-side subdues the fire to a slow burning ember mound sound enough to settle down and unwind by, complete with gruesome campfire story ending.

all tapes come with free digital download, but you can get mp3s here:

"Enveloped in fuzzy bedroom pop filters but also touching on chilled out '60s psych, Greatest Hits really hits that sweet spot. Don't sleep on this Winston-Salem brother duo." – Myspace

"Their woozy sound is a sugary smudge of lo-fi colour." – NME Magazine

"indicative of what The Sweets create so effortlessly: scuffed-up pop gems" - Tympanogram on "I Didn’t Ask For Your Permission To Date Your Sister"
