Girl Loves Distortion



There's a ton of exciting primary election coverage to finally give our television a purpose this evening, so it only seems fitting to feature a band from the nation's capitol. Well... that might not be entirely true. It's actually pure coincidence but also the perfect excuse to post more outstanding indie rock recently found within our email inbox. Girl Loves Distortion is the trio of Jenn Izza (percussion, vocals) Steve (bass, guitar, organ, vocals) and Chris (guitar, bass, organ, vocals) from Washington D.C. The band's self-released full length debut, titled Earth Beings on Exhibit, was produced by Hugh McElroy (Black Eyes), mastered by Chad Clark at Silver Sonya and will be available for purchase at some point early in March. There are a number of additional tracks to stream on the Girl Loves Distortion website as well as a pair of demos for listening at the GLD MySpace page. If you are a fan, or are even familiar with some of the mid to late 1980s bands (from cities like... um, Boston) who shaped the post-hardcore fuzz rock era back in the day, you will most definitely want to adjust the volume on your computer speakers to the highest possible level. Great stuff.

I have seen this band a few times in DC and they are awesome to watch perform. Their music is a good eclectic mix of indie, rock, experimental, and everything in between. I can't wait to hear their first release and look forward to seeing them a few more times and turning all my friends on to them.
