Not only is a new song from Girlpool an unexpected and welcome delight, but this fine gem also features Dev Hynes, or Blood Orange, on backing vocals, guitars, keyboards, and mixing. Picturesong is a gauzy skating, languid hovering song that certainly kicks off very differently from most of the Los Angeles bands’ prior scuzzy lo-fi punk and disarming guitar pop offerings. But it builds ever so slowly and achingly towards a fuzzy roiling finish. Girlpool explores loneliness and perception on their new single, which is out now on Anti-. Catch them on tour this month in the U.S. They’ll be stopping by the Great American Music Hall in SF on February 21st.

It won’t be too long before Girlpool’s new album Powerplant arrives. I’ve already pre-ordered my copy ahead of its May 12th release date. The band from Los Angeles has been garnering effusive critical acclaim for tastes off the record, so I’m quite sure I’m not the only one very excited for Powerplant. For now, let’s watch their new video for gently pensive album cut, It Gets More Blue. It’s casual aesthetic and laid back charm go hand in hand with It Gets More Blue’s hazy mellow, scuzzy disarming guitar pop and lo-fi punk. You can pre-order Girlpool’s album Powerplant from their site, here.

It would seem from the chatter I’ve been picking up on these past months that Los Angeles’ Girlpool is garnering some major buzz and attention, which is much deserved. I’m incredibly glad. It won’t be long now before the duo release their debut full length, Before The World Was Big. It’ll be out on Wichita Records come June 2nd. Today, they’ve shared the title track, a charming, angsty punk rocker. There’s a melodramatic pop punk quality to the song that’s near theatrical, captivating me thoroughly, driven by the girls’ raw vocals and nostalgic lyrics.

Funny thing happened this morning when I was listening through some of my emails. I was chatting away with someone about going to shows solo, and lo and behold, guess what starts streaming into my ears but this adorable, angsty tune Alone At The Show, from Los Angeles duo Girlpool! The world works in such strange ways. The raw, endearing, and punk-y tune is off of a compilation tape named The Le Sigh Vol. II which will showcase unreleased songs from female fronted bands, as well as original work from 10 artists surrounding the them of “The Occult”.
