Video Session : Vivian Girls
These girls just have no fun...

The rapid ascension of Brooklyn's Vivian Girls was an interesting thing to witness in 2008.  In that short time they quickly earned the respect of critics and their peers, but have had an up-and-down relationship with some fans.  They've already played shows with a long list of all-stars and up-and-comers : Yo La Tengo, Deerhunter, Times New Viking, King Khan, Love Is All and Jay Reatard - just to name a few.  Early on, of course, fans responded well. The Girls self-released their vinyl-only debut in a limited 500 press quantity and sold out before they finished their first three-week U.S. tour.  In The Red Records picked up their debut and re-released it this past October for all to enjoy.

Later in the year however, the girls caught all sorts of blog world hell for dissing "normal people", non-members of the indie/punk community, anyone who has a desk job, hangs out with their co-workers, goes to Applebees, likes Bloomin' Onions or goes to TGI Fridays.  Anyway, not their best moment so they issued an apology.

Hopefully we've all moved on, and they've learned their lesson.  Their sound combines reverb-laden girl-group harmonies and melodies with fuzzy guitars and creates their own brand of shoegaze surf/noise pop-rock.

In a recent interview with My Old Kentucky Blog, Cassie Ramone said the band plans to tour all over the U.S., Europe and hopefully Japan and Austrailia in 2009.  They also plan to release their follow-up LP!

The ladies were not only incredibly photogenic, but were also kind enough to play two unreleased tracks for us!
