A few months ago, locally based Tumblr micro-icon Molly Soda posted an MP3 mix that turned me on to the Demonstration Tapes anthology by 70s British group Dolly Mixture, whose embrace of skritchy, uber-modern postpunk on one hand and sweetly nostalgic girl-group pop on the other helped prepare the ground for twee and riot grrrl. "Dream Come True" turned up in a shuffled iTunes playlist of mine over the weekend, just in time for the first 12 O'Clock Track post of the week. Its giddy vocal melody and punchy, Townshend-esque guitars should brush away any postweekend cobwebs glitching up your system.

Check it out after the jump.
