Come On And Laugh With Me

August 25, 2009


The word Girls hails a thunderstorm of emotions. For some, girls brings back memories of chasing females in your college-aged years. For the band Girls, this seems to be it. Their dose of lo-fi acoustic guitar grunge is much more pleasant sounding than that description right there. There’s been a surge of lo-fi lately– Wavves, Neon Indian, Javelin, just to name a few– but it’s Girls who win out for being the most original sounding and refreshing. While their melodies often recall a grunged-out Beach Boys, songs like “Hellhole Ratrace” have no predecessor to compare it to.
