Blank Dogs, Little Girls and Handglops

Invisible man from Brooklyn, hard to understand. Lo-fi, new wave, death pop, synth, post-punk. Seventeen recordings in two and a half years. Dense, moody.

Murky, lo-fi post-punk band Little Girls play noisy, sinister pop music. Though they’ve only been in existence since January 2009, they’ve already released a 7-inch on Blank Dogs’ label Captured Tracks and a 12-inch on Mexican Summer (home of Ariel Pink and Marissa Nadler).

Handglops makes college party music. They are mostly from Toledo, Ohio but also from Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. Best New Music. Praise from Pitchfork here.
