Exactly two years after the release of their debut album, Album, and one year after the release of Broken Dreams Club EP, San Francisco’s Girls have announced the release of their third album, Father, Son, Holy Ghost.
To me, Album carried the sound of teenagers messing around on guitars, sprawled out on the worn-out couch in the darkened garage. Broken Dreams Club sounded like the painful spring break spent mourning over unrequited love under the cabana. In my head, Father, Son, Holy Ghost is the confessionary of a post-collegiate idlewild who’s wisened-up to the perils of heartbreak.
Based on the track listing, this will be a fully-fleshed out album that explores a variety of bodily functions (Vomit; Die) and controversial topics (Magic). There’s even a track called Jamie Marie (Album contained a track called Lauren Marie). This only confirms my suspicions that nearly every North American female has been saddled with that middle name, including myself.
According to the band, the album was recorded in the basement of an office building with a variety of “tube and transistor based recording” devices. The lineup was also tweaked with the addition of drummer Darren Weiss and guitarist John Anderson to join Christopher Owens and Chet White.
Music Between Friends will be sure to release the album’s single as soon as it comes out!
