Last year Cassie Ramone came to Kilby Court leading Brooklyn noise-pop band Vivian Girls, but this year she is coming with her side project The Babies.
The Babies began several years ago when she started making lo-fi music just for fun with then-housemate Kevin Morby of the band Woods, although the first time the two met they argued passionately about the virtues of Courtney Love.
With that argument over, the band has gone on to create two albums’ worth of lo-fi pop-punk with plenty of guitar buzz and Ramone cooing like Nico to Morby’s Lou Reed. There still remains one argument, though. Ramone said in a phone interview that she hates the name of the group, created when she said they seemed like complainers and whiners. It was meant as only a temporary placeholder, but now the band is too far along to change it.
