Witches is, in fact, awesome in its own way -- the trio resurrects indie rock at its purest, before it got all high-tech or psychedelia-obsessed. The band's loose, stripped-down jangle is almost retro-'90s, especially when you factor in the female vocals and guitars.
Once upon a time, girls could lead a lo-fi rock act without having to worry too much about cultivating a willfully weird and/or fashionable image. (See Heavens to Betsy, Bratmobile, et. al., or even purposefully poppier acts like That Dog or the Gainesville act Discount, featuring a pre-Kills V.V. when she was known by real name Allison.)
