Girls On Tour (As Opposed to On Film)

The new Girls album, Album, will be released September 22. I'm listening to it, and it's really good. I wasn't so impressed with last year's darlings The Fleet Foxes, but this is right up my alley. The two are comparable only because the albums are not traditional "ROCK."

The San Francisco duo Girls make music that is a bit of Teenage Fanclub mixed with specks of My Bloody Valentine, and maybe some Jonathan Richman honesty thrown in for good measure. It's pop infused melancholy - or vice versa. Here is the single "Lust For Life" click here

"Hello Ratrace"
