Little Girls’ Concepts

I just love when one of these emails lands in my inbox…

I have been blessed with an early copy of the Little GirlsConcepts release (10/13 on Paper Bag Records).  It’s eleven tracks of lo-fi wonder that brings to mind thoughts of discovery of an unreleased Joy Division album.  I said as much in my last post.

There are other influences at work here… Wire comes to mind for one, but Wire is really too far up the lo-fi ladder.  Little Girls hover more around the lower rungs… more of a garage sound… but not to the extremes of the Cramps or the polish of The Jesus and Mary Chain. I could go on, but I can’t get away from the guitar work and how much it brings to mind the early work of Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook.  Its an eerie resemblance, but very welcome one… and I’ll gladly take more.

The track list is as follows:

Youth Tunes
Seeing
Tambourine
Concepts
Imaginary Friends
Salt Swimmers
Thrills
Departure
Venom
Last Call
Growing
