Track of the Week

That time of the week again. In the interest of not wanting to post tracks by artists that I’ve mentioned on the blog before, this task is getting harder. But that’s ok, cos on a positive note it means that there is less chance of you having ever heard of the tracks I will feature. Always nice to discover new music, isn’t it? And so for today, I present to you…

The Jealous Girlfriends – Lay Around

To me this track is a classic. It’s actually quite hard to explain why, maybe cos I’m not that much of a rock connoisseur, I dunno. There’s a bit of a country twang (something I usually despise), a solid bassline, and smooth vocals. I think that perhaps it is just the completeness of the track, the whole construction. Kind of goes back to that “when a track becomes a complete composition” theory I mentioned the other week. Either way, and words aside, it’s a good track and you should definitely check it out.

The Jealous Girlfriends are an indie rock group playing out of Brooklyn, New York. They comprise of; Josh Abbott, Alex Lipsen, Holly Miranda, and Mike Fadem. They’ve only been together as a band since 2004 and released the album Comfortably, Uncomfortable in 2005, of which Lay Around appears on. The group have struck up quite a following, particularly via word-of-mouth, and have actually now completed a second album. Be sure to check them out at their website and MySpace page.
