I’ve been a big fan of The Girls Can Hear Us ever since Audioporn mentioned that they sound like another of my favorite artists, Scotty Dynamo.
The Girls Can Hears Us! (conveniently shorted as TGCHU) have the sort of self-aware hilarity that I like in my electropop-rap, and the catchy beats also make for pretty good gym music.
Now, just in time for summer, TGCHU are going to drop their debut album and all of the songs sound pretty good. Even better is that the boys are fans of giving some of their tracks away for free, and hooked me up with a couple for posting here.
I don’t know if it has the staying power to be the banger we’ll be listening to all summer long, but its fun for now.
For a couple of good summer mixes, check out the wonky Sound Pellegrino Team Thermal mix on Curb Crawlers, the MADJAZZ’s Summer Brainstorm on Mad Decent or The Summer Never Ends mix by Jens Lekman. All three should be good for bumpin’ on the patio with a case of beer on a warm evening.
