Girls


No I am not going to venture out on that tight-rope and comment on the opposite sex, instead I want to highlight the alt rock band 'Girls'. Although I can tell you nothing about their first album, I can say that I stumbled upon this second accomplishment (Father, Son and Holy Ghost) when reading the favourable review in Spin Magazine. It doesn't happen for me that often, but in this case I was immediately drawn to this on its first listen. There are a couple of repetitive slightly annoying tunes but on the whole I was hearing something quite interesting. Other reviewers compared it to Elvis Costello, however I couldn't shake the impression that I was listening to a recent Wilco album. His voice is eerily close to Jeff Tweedy's. Check out this video of theirs for the song Vomit.
