The Girl's Alright with Us

Hello! It's before 10 AM, I've had way to much coffee, and I've listened to the unbelievably fantastic new Love is All single, "Wishing Well," about eight times now. I think it's going to be a good day!

I'm considerably more certain that it will be a good evening since squaregirl Kristen and I are dj-ing here:

O.k. I'm resisting the urge to play "Wishing Well" one more time, and letting the rest of the Love is All portion of my itunes play itself out so that I can focus my attention on informing you to what is sure to be a pretty great show tonight. The ultra-feminine electro-pop of Hearts of Palm UK has inspired us squaregirls to dig through our records to find our best girl related songs, i.e. all girls, girl singer, girl in the title, etc. to play for the portions of their album release show tonight that we are responsible for. Add Fol Chen - who never play the same show twice, but always play something interesting - to this mix, and The Sweet Hurt - who I know absolutely nothing about, but the L.A. blog force seems to love - to the mix, and you've got what I think is the potential for quite a fun party...

... So, we'll see you tonight?

Wow, I would feel a LOT better about that Love is All song if it weren't basically the Clean's "Tally Ho".

I mean, I liked "Nine Times the Same Song" as much as the next guy, but there are some things you simply do not do.

Eh, I'll probably get over it. I mean, do I blame Neutral Milk Hotel for "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea"'s striking resemblance to the Carousel's "My Boy And His Motorbike"?

Well, yes, a little. But still.

Yeah, I know what you mean about the uncanny resemblances. I always struggle with that too, but I like the update that Love is All did with that nearly identical melody. I like the lyrics, and the vocals and the very, very fast pace. I don't know, it is a very good point to bring up. I guess I've just made peace with other bands doing similar updates to classic songs so I guess I just mentally filed this into the same category!
