The B-52's
"The B-52's"

The debut from the New Wave Surf Rockers, this album was released in 1979, well before their biggest hit, "Love Shack." For me, that's just fine, as I prefer the unadulterated New Wave bent this album takes.

Combine this sensibility with the beehive-wearing party-chic timbre and you have something that can only be out-weirded by the vocal stylings of Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson.

I love this album.
