Co-sign. Just the way it starts, with the chippy-happy bongos (or whatever) immediately brings a smile to my face.
"Kid In Candy" = pretty perfect pop.

Gates was at the time experimenting with R&B, covering songs by Aaliyah ("Are You That Somebody?") and TLC ("No Scrubs") in concert, and the sultry vibe of that genre also informed her singing in the studio.
Haven't found these on youtube. I saw her do "No Scrubs."

Rebecca has a full-length solo album out, "The Float". I've listened to it a couple of times and it's growing on me, though it's mostly gentle and I miss the swagger of The Spinanes. Still, the closing track in particular is great.
