Girls, The - Yes, No, Yes, No, Yes, No CD $9.00

Seattle quintet, THE GIRLS, deliver a punk-rock sound armed with both the intuition of the better half and the brawn of the other. We?re talking impressively tight, clean punk-rock that clearly recognizes why bands like Devo and the Cars inspired a good chunk of the bands that inspired a good chunk of the bands that people are always loosing-their-shit for these days.Right from the start, THE GIRLS displayed a surplus of indisputably catchy hooks, a tightrope-dancing rhythm section, confident blurts and yelps from frontman Shannon Brown, razor-sharp synths, and the charisma to match. Critics were quick to take notice of the band?s 2004 self-titled Dirtnap debut. Pitchfork proclaimed "this is no fishnet-hawking electroclash fashionista rock; besides having more sexxx appeal than both Coreys combined, The Girls've got chops like Ralph Macchio" while OC Weekly described the band as "Early-Cars meets Richard Hell and The Voidoids synthed-up garage punk that any fan of The Briefs, The Spits, or The Lost Sounds (R.I.P.) would gravitate to." Shannon Brown and guitar-slasher, Zache Davis, survived member changes to lead ?Griff? (bass/back up vox), Derek Mason (keyboard), and Elie Goral on drums into brief and concise displays of new-wave/punk excellence. THE GIRLS, who has at one time or another had members of the Briefs, Spits, Catheters, Steve E Nix And The Cute Lepers, delve even deeper into their well studied set of influences and have emerged with Yes No Yes No Yes No. These 10 twitchy new wave power pop gems continue THE GIRLS? worship at the feet of Richard Hell and The Voidoids, the Cars, Stiv Bators and Devo while venturing into the jagged pep pill-sped abstractions of Wire. The band again enlisted Martin Feveyear (Briefs, Epoxies) to press the buttons at Seattle?s Jupiter studios. From the quirky whirling synthes of ?Where Wolves Drink? and ?Who Are the Forgetters? to the rowdy punk-pop of ?Not I,? Yes No Yes No Yes No captures the energetic hooks and unique anxiousness of the band?s much-heralded live performance which has seen them share stages worldwide with the likes of Graham Coxon, the Black Lips, the Detroit Cobras and the Briefs. Expect much more touring around the globe in support of Yes No Yes No Yes No.
