The HBO show Girls is one of my favorite new shows. Apparently it’s also one of Sanitgold’s. She has given a new song appropriately titled “Girls”, to the show’s first soundtrack Girls: Music from the HBO Orginial Series, Vol.1 which comes out January 8 via Fueled By Ramen.
If there ever was an appropriate time to compare Santi to M.I.A., it’s on “Girls.” It’s an electronic rap fusion that isn’t my favorite thing from her, but I could understand its placement on the show.
Girls Names have returned with a spiraling 7-minute guitar jam titled “The New Life”. What starts off as a 90′s influenced guitar rocker soon departs into waves of psychedelic guitar wash. The song only gets better as it goes along, so be sure to stay for the entire ride.
“Lord Knows” is a new Dum Dum Girls song taken from their upcoming End Of Daze EP. It will be released via Sub Pop on September 25. It’s a hazy ballad that is very much up to speed with the rest of the girls arsenal.
The song is available for free download/streaming via the widget posted below.
These were covers that the band played live in the early, early, stages of their careers. We only had sub-par live recordings to feed off of, but we felt fortunate enough just having those. After all these years, studio quality versions of these covers have surfaced. If only you could have seen the look on my face when I made this fine discovery.
This one goes out to all of you guys who were Arctic Monkeys fans from the start. It really is.
Dum Dum Girls are releasing a new EP titled End Of Daze on September 25 via Sub Pop. It’s a 5-song EP that features a cover of Strawberry Switchbladeâ€™s â€œTrees and Flowersâ€. They performed “Mine Tonight”, a song form the EP live for a Rhapsody acoustic session.

As I reported last week, M.I.A. reworked “Bad Girls” from her Vicki Leekx mixtape and released it today as a new single. It’s one of those tracks that sounds that much better blasted loud on some good speakers.
M.I.A. is working on her new album which is looking at a summer release. You may even see her at the Super Bowl halftime show if Madonna brings her out to perform their collab single, “Give Me All Your Luvin”.

My first show of 2012 was no small affair. It was a lethal bill consisting of King Krule, Real Estate, and GirlsÂ at Terminal 5. You can call it an indie rock invasion. A good one at that.
First you got a young band just emerging from the breeding grounds of True Panther. Another is a band that seems to be rising every given moment, making New Jersey very proud. Finally you got Girls, a band who have come a long way since 2009, selling out one of the bigger venues NYC has to offer, and doing so with relative ease. Read the rest of this entry »
