Girls - Summertime (2009)

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

this is my fav girls song

the production on it is pure beauty, just gorgeous woozy mid-fi. captures the same vibe the best clientele songs do, i wish more bands would mine that sound

it's funny how they worked against seemingly all their strengths on that record.

long, turgid multipart songs. formulaic pop ballads ("love like a river," which, iirc, Owens had said he wrote "for Justin Bieber," which ... lol and "saying i love you"). dialing down the (good) lo-fi/shoegaze influence.

"alex" is still good though.

i don't think i even listened to it tbh. it's kinda weird i'm even re-visiting this band but maybe i'm nostalgic for the last turn of the decade or something. the songs are obviously catchy too
