I'm just finishing listening to it for the first time and I'm digging it. I don't see any threads about it which surprises me. I mean, I imagine I'm going to get shit for listening to them but there are a lot of fairies on here I thought'd like them. Anybody else heard it?

For some reason I can tell pitchfork likes this and this is the first I've heard about them.

Nothing against them, just an observation.

I've never said this, ever:

The name and the album title make me not want to check 'em out.


I mean, I will eventually, I'm sure, but that has to be the worst band/album name combo ever.

I don't really find much to enjoy from Girls. It sounds very... Pitchfork though, so, if you like things that sound like things Pitchfork thinks is cool then have at it.

Honestly, I could tell this was a pitchfork band just from the band name, title and album art. Boring.

After looking at the videos on youtube... I'm not motivated to listen to the album.

I might give it a better chance at some point maybe.

the best songs are headache and morning light.

really, the guy mostly just cops ariel pink and roy orbison and shoegaze stuff.

headache has the Orbison vocals... probably why i like it. and morning light is the shoegazey one. they're both good songs... just not at all original in any way.

the vibe is so weird that i guess its kind of original in some way... its weird

Listening to "Lust for Life".... shit kinda sucks.

Listening to "Morning Light"... Is this a Mote cover? Homage? Ripoff?... this doesn't sound like the same band as the song above and it's actually pretty decent enough song but um... sounds a lot like MOTE, too much for comfort.

Listening to "Hellhole Ratrace". This is the worst thing I've ever heard.

This band promises nourishment even while they conjure up thoughts of emaciation -- easy listening for people still not ready to put on their Wavves Pull-Ups yet.

This band sucks.

There have been too many bands in the last three decades called Girls or The Girls. And none of them hold a candle to the best moments of the band from Boston in the late 70s/early 80s. Therefore, I also run the other way from any new band that makes a radar blip with that name. It happens every five years or so. The last Girls were a Seattle band on Dirtnap. Pretty mediocre.

wow, it's like every other shoegaze/shitgaze/lo-fi/whatever band around right now! except not as good! i'm amazed y'all.

mote is a fucking excellent song, but if you have to resort to ripping it off... no. just no.

That's true. I thought it was a bad name but it is one of the strangest and genuinely interesting pop release of the year.
