Lo-fi indie rock-meets-psychedelia-meets-folk-meets-punk-meets-garage rock in the Memphis-based (and all-boy) Girls of the Gravitron. A supergroup of sorts — formed by Pop Dungeon denizens/members of the Barbaras and Kazalok — weirdly combine acoustic guitars and feedback — and it works!
The folks at Ongakubaka blog aptly describe the Girls’ debut 7-inch, “Malthusian Love Song” (Boom Chick), as reminiscent of “Black Lips with a Times New Viking approach to recording.” The majority of Memphis College of Art’s female students love ‘em, and you will, too.
During Gonerfest VI, Girls of the Gravitron will play the Afternoon Blowout at Murphy’s on Saturday, Sept. 26th. Until then, go here to watch footage of ‘em performing at the Dada Ball.
