Title: I Lose/You Win
Format: 7
Label: Slumberland
Country: USA
Price: $4.00
"GIRLS NAMES formed in Belfast in January 2009 with their first gig booked before the duo had even played together. In their short existence, theyve quickly streamlined their sound, forging a self-styled "disposable noise pop" reminiscent of the 80s shadow world of Black Tambourine and Felt. Theyve been prolific, too, honing their sound over the course of several releases, including an EP on Captured Tracks and a mini-album on Tough Love. "I Lose" represents the next step in their evolution. Marking the first time Girls Names has recorded as a three-piece, the track is driven by an insistent cyclical riff, punctuated by CATHAL CULLYs deceptively assured croon. San Franciscos BRILLIANT COLORS have staked-out a unique spot in the indie music landscape, inspired in equal parts by post-punk DIY fervor and the spiky pop of C86 and early Flying Nun / Creation label output. Their 2009 album Introducing combined guitar buzz with dreamy melodies and rushing rhythms, forming a startling blend of The Dils and Shop Assistants. Driven by an absurdly catchy vocal melody and the bands now trademark distorted guitars, "You Win" (recorded by TY SEGALL) is another anthem in Brilliant Colors ever-growing catalog, offering a superb taster for their new album, due Spring 2011." -Slumberland
