How Much For The Little Girls
Little Girls began in January 2009 as the solo recording project of multi-instrumentalist Josh McIntyre who, at the time, was one-half of Toronto shoegaze duo Pirate/Rock. Josh posted two songs on the web under the pseudonym Little Girls to preserve his anonymity.
In less than two years, McIntyre has released five singles, two EPs and an LP on a variety of independent labels. Meanwhile, Little Girls has been touring as a four-piece band and has trekked from one corner of the country to the other. Now, Little Girls are preparing to release their new album, Cults, on September 6th on vinyl and download and it should be a doozy.
Taking the Mary Chain's template, adding a bit of synth to it, fuzzing it all out, giving the songs copious amount of lithium and then filtering it through the Amazopopotron3000 Little Girls come up with some rather amazing tunes. Just check out the cover of John Maus', "Believer," for an example.
Watch: a classic scene....
