All Music Guide:

Lansing, Michigan trio Cheap Girls' high-energy, nostalgic pop-meets-punk sound lands somewhere between the Replacements and Superchunk. Comprised of singer/bassist/acoustic guitarist Ian Graham, his drummer/percussionist brother Ben Graham and guitarist Adam Aymor, the band formed in 2007 with the objective of playing back-to-basics rock. Their first album, the self-released Find Me a Drink Home, arrived the following year. A busy touring schedule followed, making way for sophomore record My Roaring 20s, released on Paper + Plastick, which also reissued Find Me a Drink Home. In 2010, Cheap Girls played with Against Me! for the first time, a meeting which grew into a U.S. tour together the following year, and securing Tom Gabel to produce their next record at his new studio. The result was Giant Orange, a collection of road-tested songs showcasing the band's giant hooks and cohesiveness, which arrived on Rise in February 2012.
