You catch it all in your mouth

Apparently Girls In Hawaii are neither girls or located in Hawaii… A blatant case of false advertising, but damn if this fucking album wasn’t so good, I might give a shit. Instead of sexy, oily, & tanned hotties in bikinis sauntering around, we are treated to some Belgian indie-pop/rock/americana/occasional-pink-floydiness in their new release Plan Your Escape. What? Occasional-pink-floydiness? Huh? Yeah, check out that bass groove on the centerpiece song “Fields Of Gold” (once it gets really going, and in the end, it really doesn’t want to stop… you can almost seeing this getting stretched out live to a good 10 minutes or so, with a Gilmore solo thrown in to boot). Then you add in the bits of americana here and here (“Bored” & “Shades Of Time”) plus toss in that one of the singers sounds like
Emil Svan√§ngen from Loney, Dear… man, what else do I need to say?

Recommended by good friend Lysol (and, like his namesake, this was a breath of fresh air! har!), this album is quickly blowing my ass away. I’ve got about 20 albums set, ready for listening, and so far today, this is the only one that I’ve played.

Don’t take my word for it… here’s the first few tracks, enjoy!

Girls In Hawaii – This Farm Will End Up In Fire
Girls In Hawaii – Sun Of The Sons
Girls In Hawaii – Bored
Girls In Hawaii – 5.20.22
Girls In Hawaii – Shades Of Time
Girls In Hawaii – Fields Of Gold

Feuds of god
I haven’t found

except that of I

against you

trapped in a cloud

I give you all

the things I’ve laid

against you
trapped in a cloud
it’s raining tears
you catch it all
in your mouth

Go show the Boys in Belgium all you love here, here, and here now!

And hey! hope you are digging the Sharon Jones vinyl rip but I got some good news… we got in our latest member vinyl rip, it’s a rather current album (2007 anyways), so be on the look out (it may not stay up long!). Got vinyl to rip and share? Want a home to do it? Go join the TSURURADIO Vinyl Preservation Society today and let’s start sharing the vinyl love!!!
