This is a life-affirming and upbeat record. Swivel Hips play great party music. Singer Dawn Lozefski has a good voice and the band are well synchronised.
     "Hottie" is fun and "Goddess" is a good song to play when you're mad at someone.
     All in all it's a record that deserves investigating. (
