The Pipettes

Were he not serving a life sentence in prison, Wall of Sound creator and former producer Phil Spector would clamor to work with the Pipettes, a British indie-pop girl group whose style is a throwback to the '60s, complete with color-coordinated outfits, synchronized dance moves, and of course plenty of cheeky tunes. The charming band is back in America after three years away to promote their newest album, last year's Earth vs. The Pipettes. Fans will notice that the lineup has changed: As Britain's answer to Destiny's Child, several members have gone through the revolving door, and now the former trio is now a brand-new duo, sisters Gwenno and Ani Saunders. But thankfully, the music is the same, and at the risk of sounding crass, the newest Pipettes are much cuter than their predecessors. ERIKA HOBART
