There's no doubt that Vivian Girls have captured the attention of quite a few this year, even with their self-released debut sold out. But with a few lingering 7"s and the impending In The Red reissue of said album on the way it appears that that attention will only grow larger as this year moves forward.

Vivian Girls - Orphanage 7" Three tracks from the Girls' excellent debut record show up on this 7" from the folks at Woodsist and though the fidelity dips a bit from that of the final record versions it does little to render these tracks any less delightful. The group's stripped down
pop and sing-a-long female choruses bring to mind a host of nineties lo-fi stalwarts and their harmonies catch a glimmer of the girl group era's charm; though the overall effect leans much more to the Vaselines than the Rondelles every time. I'm eagerly awaiting the reissue of their album as I missed out on the vinyl version the first time around and need to grace my turntable properly with the full length in its intended form, but until then this will have to tide me over.
