This morning, “06880” highlighted Pussy Mannequin. In case you missed that story — or skipped it entirely — the hook was that Rolling Stone magazine named that band’s “Romantic” album the 3rd best of 2016 (sandwiched between David Bowie and Leonard Cohen).
Oh yeah: Half of the band — Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul — are 2005 Staples High School grads.
Turns out it’s not the only Westport group Rolling Stone is jazzed about. Charly Bliss just made their “Favorite Songs Right Now” page.
Charly Bliss — that’s the band’s name — includes Eva Hendricks, her brother Sam Hendricks, and Dan Shure. All are recent Staples alums.
The song that’s cited is called (unfortunately) “Turd.” The magazine describes it (helpfully) as “a great punk-rock banger about getting catcalled (‘In your dreams, turd!’).
But before you quickly scramble away from this page, know this about “Turd”: All proceeds go to Planned Parenthood.
