If you’ve lost track of Beretta76 in the past few years, that’s understandable. After putting out the stellar and still-vital Black Beauty in 2006, the Philly garage rockers have been kinda streaky. A show here, a song there — always loud, lovely and raucous — but lots of dry spells and no new releases in all that time. That’s why it’s such a joy to hear “You’re Young,” the first peek at their long-awaited/still-not-quite-out EP. The song is everything we need from Beretta76: the classic riff, the hip-shaking beat, and Camille Escobedo’s righteous, swaggering vocals (a little more Benatar than Courtney, maybe). Remember when people used to dance at rock shows?
