came across the CHICAGO INDIE ROCK band HORSEGIRL recently and im very much enamored with their sound which feels equal parts TWEE and GARAGE ROCK. almost reminds me of the first time i heard THE SWIRLIES where i was convinced that the band could only make such a cacophonous racket that melodic if they knew their instruments well, but not too well. i like bands that are kind of on that edge of proficiency whereby they come up with some cool and untraditional sonic juxtapositions.
HORSEGIRL definitely come across as such and i think they are well worth checking out. looking forward to hearing how they develop their intriguing sound in the coming years.
