I was listening to KCRW yesterday morning when a loud, reverberating song came on the radio. It sounded familiar, but I couldn’t put my finger on who it was. It turned out to be a new song from The Magnetic Fields called California Girls, an Anti-Beach Boys-ian ditty about how trashy the girls around here really are. The song reminds me much more of 69 Love Songs of Holiday, and nothing at all like I, which is kind of disappointing because I was a huge fan of the last album.
Give the song a listen if you’re a fan, it’s really pretty good.
P.S. What’s up with the HORRIBLE album artwork for Distortion? Stephin, give me a call, we’ll work out something much less… vomit inducing.
