Thread: Girls

  1. #1

    Default Girls

    I know there are some huge acts playing this year, but Girls are my #1 must see. This CD to me culminates everything great about an album (conveniently titled Album). It feels like a compilation CD with one singer and a new backup band for each track yet for some reason, flows effortlesly together. The song Hellhole Ratrace is maybe 7 minutes long with about 4 lines of lyrics yet I never have once skipped it.

    Does anyone else agree with me? Is this a must see act for you? Love to hear your thoughts.

    I agree, definitely one of my must sees. I'm hoping they play some non-album tracks as well as the ones I've heard are fantastic.

    Hmmm I don't think they're on my must-see list. Depends on who's playing at the same time.

    Side note: The song Headache absolutely sucks. The only negative thing about this CD.

    I've seen Girls twice, and it was fun both times. Their set is kinda short, but if you like Album you'll have a good time.

    "album" is great, but I saw them just after they did a guitarist swap and the new guy was an absolute disaster. the show was still good but I want to give them another chance to see if they can put together a live show as fantastic as their lp

    Children of God cult... ever heard of it...? yeah, that poor dude was born into it. Ive done some reading up on them lately, been through some fucked up shit, and i must say hes got 100% passion when it comes to music. They just played the local hipster joint in Costa Mesa a few weeks ago. Very excited about seeing them at COACHELLA.
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    Wink Re: Girls

    Seeing them Sunday in SF, have been following this band from small clubs to bigger venues...they are really a breath of fresh air in a music scene that gasps on its own coolness. In for a treat for sure, especially if you want to "shake a leg or two..."

    Just curious, which one of the two is the Cult kid (Owens). Is that the dude with the long blond hair or the dude with the shorter dark hair?

    I enjoy this band a lot. I recommend people to check them out on the pitchfork site. They do a live rooftop performance and it's pretty hypnotic imo.

    Long blond hair is Owens.

    The cult story is crazy. Talk about a beginning. Explains a lot of the raw emotion in this CD though. I think that's why I like it so much, it just comes off as being really honest.

    I saw them months ago in SF and thought it was terrible... then a friend went to last week's GAMH SF show and said, "worst live band ever"... go in with low expectations. i found it interesting that we both could only stomach 4 songs live having not discussed it until afterwards.

    I dig "Album" but was skeptical about seeing them live until a journalist said that a GIRLS set is like something out of a David Lynch movie....uhh yes please?

    I met the band when they did a record store appearance before their Houston show a few weeks ago. The all seemed pretty out of it but as soon as I mentioned Coachella Christopher Owens perked up. He was asking me if I'd been before, what I thought of it, etc. I told him I'd be flying to Coachella again from Houston and look forward to seeing them there. They all seemed pretty shocked by that and really appreciative.
    If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    I've never heard anyone say they miss living in Costa Mesa...but I believe Detroit Bar is the best thing about the city.
