[THE LI’LERTINES] After some especially fallow years within those vast underground hothouses beneath Britain, where adorably dissipated poet-warrior-frontmen are grown from piss, vinegar and Replacements B-sides, U.K. headlines finally trumpeted a bumper crop. From nearly its first proper gig, London quartet Palma Violets—less an evolutionary step forward from Arctic Monkeys than feral pub-rock kids scavenging Clash and Velvet Underground records for the catchiest parts—had the broadsheets all aflutter. Stateside critics joined the choir after raucous Coachella and SXSW sets tore through shoutily anthemic singles-to-be like so many cans of cheap lager. The terrace-shaking brio and ragamuffin heart of recently released Rough Trade debut 180 may not quite equal the slavering press adoration, but, with tuneful frenzy like this, who needs the NME
