Single Serving: Girls – Father, Son, Holy Ghost

San Francisco’s Girls have a new LP scheduled for a September 13th release.  The first track released from that record is titled “Vomit” which sounds nothing like what you’d probably expect a song titled “Vomit” to sound like.  It is a melodically-shifting ballad with Pulp-esque harmonies, fuzz-covered guitar riffs and howling-pastoral organs.  It’s achingly beautiful and further evidence that the boys from Girls are more than capable of grand statements.  Girls’ frontman Christopher Owens called it a “personal triumph” and added that it was the beginning for him and only the 4th song he ever wrote.  Thanks to Gorilla vs. Bear who posted it up on their site first.

Update: Christopher Owens noted that the song title is in reference to Proverbs 26:11 which reads: “As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.”  I thought that was an interesting enough insight to merit an update.

  • Can’t wait to listen to this! Currently listening to a mix cd made by a friend.

    Yes Matt…I’m listening to new music while searching for new music. I’m pretty sure on some level this isn’t healthy.

  • Oh, I totally feel your pain. I am constantly listening to new music while reading/writing about new music. And occasionally thinking about other new music at the same time.

  • That’s what I like about making music, because it’s like taking a break from being overwhelmed by how much music is already out in the world.

    Sharing music like you do and chatting with people is another great way to get grasp on how vast music is?

    Do you play/record music at all?

  • Not anymore. I was never any good at it to be honest, which gives me a profound respect for those who are.

  • With your ear for music I’m sure you’re a lot better than you let on, but i’m glad that you have more time to create this awesome site with your wife for all of us to enjoy.
