Semi-Sweet is an exquisitely apropos name for Tijuana Panthers' second and latest record. First, the sugary: The Los Angeles-based trio generates surfy garage-pop that's heavy on the tender melodies and doe-eyed, doo-woppy charms — enough to make you think that these guys just want to exchange sweet nothings with their best girls and smile forever. But Panthers allow the "Semi" ample breathing room, too, with coarse production sharpening the pop edges, and a tongue-in-cheek sensibility hanging over the whole affair. In a recent interview, bassist Daniel Michicoff listed Roy Orbison, Jonathan Richman, Dead Kennedys, Dead Milkmen, and X as major influences, plus a lot of "nice guy angst." Looks like that third album has already found a fine title.
