WATCH! Girlpool Get Fuzzy, Stay Charmed in “Chinatown” WATCH! Girlpool Get Fuzzy, Stay Charmed in “Chinatown”

I’m not gonna lie. I’ve heard a ton of great things about Girlpool but I’ve been crazy reluctant to fall in for the girl/girl gentle strumming dream din harmony because…well, that’s really not my thing, sonically and whenever it threatens to be it comes tied in toe with a whole scene of sheepish charm seekers who owe their entire identity to K and Calvin and The Shaggs, I guess and all the preciousness just makes me want to GG but quick and bloody. But you know what? This “Chinatown” track (off the 7″ of the same name out 3/24 via Wichita) is pretty fucking great and the video is like an old sweater hole. That’s a good thing, man. I recently had my sweaters darned and the damn things feel like poison. Anyway, below’s that clip and then tour dates. Rockit.
