Girls: Album
Buy! - (Fantasy Trashcan/True Panther)
This San Francisco duo debuts with a stunning album of narcotic pop. Electric lead guitars drenched in reverb and distortion are combined with thundering drums, catchy acoustic and electric guitar strums, and occasional handclaps, tambourines and harmonica, with gorgeous, classic-pop melodies poking through the album’s hazy production. The Jesus & Mary Chain are an obvious reference point (along with Phil Spector, surf music and other classic pop styles), though acoustic instruments are more prominent here, and lyrically, Girls are more prone to wearing their hearts on their sleeves with a refreshing emotional honesty. One of the year’s most impressive debut albums. 9/11/2009 - Don Yates
