Kanine Records continues to mercilessly attack my wallet with a steady output of colored-vinyl releases containing some pretty damn irresistible music. The latest is the new release from Beverly, featuring Frankie Rose (ex Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls & Dum Dum Girls) and Drew Citron (Ava Luna).
If youâ€™re a fan of any of the above bands, or if you ventured into Urban Outfitters to pick up the limited splatter version of Frankie Roseâ€™s Herein Wild last year, Careers is definitely worth picking up.
â€śCareersâ€ť is the debut album from Beverly (Frankie Rose & Drew Citron). LP includes colored vinyl, printed inner sleeve and download card.

â€śWhat also becomes clear is that Citron was ready to do her own thing, Rose is likely the best collaborator she could have hoped for, and the duo manage to transcend their influences delivering a strong and promising first record.â€ť ALL MUSIC GUIDE
â€śCareers isnâ€™t a nostalgia trip, itâ€™s an excellent example of noise pop at its best. And itâ€™s a coming-out party for Citron.â€ť ALL MUSIC GUIDE
â€śUrgent yet dreamy, this breathtaking dose of psychedelia mixes ethereal female harmonies, a soaring melody, and surging beats to dazzling effect.â€ť MOTHER JONES
