Lust for Life

1/26 Show
Last week, the always excellent blog Gorilla vs. Bear diagnosed a startling trend in indie band names. A plethora of groups with "Girls" in their title are appearing, and for the most part they all make credible, lo-fi, & hummable tunes. San Francisco's Girls is perhaps my favorite so far. Check out the audaciously-named "Lust for Life" (not an Iggy Pop cover) below.
