Thank God it’s Friday’s song of the day

Vivian Girls is a three-piece rock act from Brooklyn. Their myspace descriptor is “punk/shoegaze/surf.” I say it’s totally lo-fi indie “rehearsal-space” rock. (I just coined that term; use it immediately and everywhere).

Their self-titled album came out on vinyl in March and received a lot of buzz (not all of it good). One online reviewer wrote:

With a penchant for romanticism, Cassie, Katy, and Ali have put out an album that is loaded with songs of love and of chasing after Mr. Right that are packed with hard hitting riffs, steady drumming, and just the right amount of vocal harmonies.

Basically they don’t try to do too much with it.

Here’s the somewhat surfy, kinda shoegazey and totally reverby “Where Do You Run To” by Vivian Girls:

Reminds me of a self-produced version of the Raveonettes. I say approved with revisions.
