That’s Not My Name

Here’s some girl pop for you.

“That’s Not My Name,” The Ting Tings

To my ears, there’s something very oldies happening on this track — but in a subtle, gnawing kind of way. It would almost be right at home on Girl Group Sounds Lost and Found, my all-time favorite music anthology (and, wow, a true holiday-shopping bargain at Amazon’s $43 price). Anyway, I don’t recall just where the existence of the Ting Tings became known to me — assuredly on some other, superior website — and I know virtually nothing more about them than what can be gleaned from their MySpace page, where you’ll find an evident B-side which isn’t nearly as good.
