Garage Girls

Posted By on 10.22.09 at 05:25 PM

I've sort of unexpectedly had a really good week for (almost) all-female garage-rock bands. First I ran across Brilliant Colors on the excellent blog Raven Sings the Blues and got addicted to their spiky lo-fi power pop, which somehow manages to evoke twee while sounding kind of badass and a little dangerous. Then I interviewed Hollows for Sharp Darts. The punk-infused girl-group pop on their new self-titled album is addictive and extremely fun. Last I got to catch the always excellent Coathangers at a garage-rock festival in Portland. They pretty much destroyed the club, as expected. Some pics from their set after the jump:
