Highly recommended. 

Hate for Sale was written in tandem with the Pretenders’ touring lineup. There is chemistry here, making for tight songs that prance insouciantly from genre to genre, scattering wisdom and swagger in their wake. 

Having been an actual punk, Hynde can sneer at some chump with “coke in his pocket” and a waxed chest on the title track. Drugs figure often: Junkie Walk pairs buzzing guitars with disdain for the user’s amoral sidle, while The Buzz compares love to opiates without feeling hackneyed.

But every song could be a single. A crunching garage rock rush, I Didn’t Know When to Stop, finds Hynde – also a visual artist – struggling to render someone in oils. “I painted over you in cadmium blue light,” she concludes, before guitarist James Walbourne peels off another succinct solo.
