[THE LI’LERTINES] After some especially fallow years in the vast underground hothouses that lie 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 a pack of feral pub-rock kids scavenging Clash and Velvet Underground records for their catchiest parts—had the broadsheets all aflutter. Stateside critics joined the choir after raucous sets by the band at Coachella and SXSW tore through shouting, anthemic singles-to-be like so many cans of cheap lager. The terrace-shaking brio and ragamuffin heart of 180, the band\'s recently released debut on Rough Trade, may not quite deserve the slavering press adoration, but with tuneful frenzy like this, who needs NME?
