‘Father, Son, Holy Ghost’ – GirlsPosted: October 1, 2011
This album was released a few weeks ago, and of course I was a little slow to getting it up here, my mistake. Girls is the brainchild of Christopher Ownes, an artist whose knack for attractive melodies and lo-fi California surf pop is irresistible. On ‘Father, Son and Holy Ghost’, they get a little more complex then on their debut album, ‘Album’. Dynamic fluctuations in texture and volume keep you hooked from beginning ’til end, swinging between shaking emotional sparse acoustic whispers to operatic, arena sized celebrations.
