Albumrecension

In 1998, Fastball scored a hit single with "The Way," which propelled its album All the Pain Money Can Buy to platinum sales. The resulting pressure proved too much for the Austin-based power pop trio, and they took a few years off before returning to the scene with this, their debut album for the respected Rykodisc label. The time off seems to have worked as a tonic; on Keep Your Wig On, Fastball's sound is tight, sharp, sometimes humorous, and always supremely well-crafted, despite the group's carefully cultivated garage sensibility. But then that's not really any significant departure for a band that has always placed far more value on musical pleasure than on hipness.

They even quote themselves, stylistically anyway, on the Latin-tinged "Red Light," a song that harks back explicitly to that fateful hit single of six years ago. Derivativeness is easy to forgive — to celebrate, even — in a band that provides this much musical pleasure.
