September Girls

Let's just get this out of the way: Yes, it's another "______ Girls" band who draw inspiration from Phil Spector, VU and JAMC/C-86, but Dublin, Ireland's September Girls are quite good at what they do. (Yes their name comes from the Big Star song "by way of The Bangles.") Four of the five members (two of which were in The Chalets if you remember them) write and sing so there's some variation in the songs. Their debut album, Cursing the Sea, came out a couple weeks ago in the UK via Fortuna Pop (home of Joanna Gruesome and Shrag). I'm pre-disposed to like this kind of thing but I think it's definitely superior product. You can stream the whole thing via Spotify and check out videos for "Heartbeats" and "Green Eyed" below.

September Girls will be making their first visit to North America in March to play at SXSW. No other dates along the way have been added but I'm hoping they play NYC too. They've got a few UK dates as well and all are listed below.

"I'm pre-disposed to like this kind of thing but I think it's defnitely superior product."

I'm "definitely" pre-disposed to using spellcheck when I publish a piece. I also enjoy using a comma after "but" when used as a conjunction.

Why are there so many grammer whores on BV lately?

PHISH must have fried a lot of brains at their last NYE run.

Sorry, 4:08. I was in a meeting at the time. Here we go: don't care at all about the music, which someone else must have played because, let's face it, they're hot chicks. They all look good, so I'm happy.

More interesting than Savages and better than anything Dum Dum Girls have done since their first album. What did Vivian Girls sound like again?

I'd pay to watch the one in the hat take a shit on a glass table. Anybody want in on this action with me?

OMG I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS BAND AND THEIR NEW SOUND - DAVID SANDERSON

Bill Pearis: I'm with you on this. I to like their sound, the fact that I want to sleep with them all is beside the point. Hope they play some shows in NY before or after SXSW.

The blondey guitarist is so cool. I think some of the others must be in their 40s by now it's good to see the older gals rock like they do.

I still can't decide if i like the Wall of Sound or not

I like this band. I know they're derivative and all but it's coming from a good place. If you're going to do this sort of thing you really need the tunes to back it up. That's the problem with most acts these days, the songs just aren't there. This sure beats all the Beyonce loving, DJ mixed tape, 80's Janet Jackson wannabe shit that's all over Pitchfork these days. That crap is starting to get depressing.
