Black Girls / Press

“Ask anyone who caught the band at Style Weekly's Earth Day Festival event: Black Girls' potent blend of snuff rock — what they call their theatrical, glam-infused Southern funk rock — can be just as entertaining in the open air as it is in a dank nightclub. The five-piece Girls, all white boys who reportedly met in a convenience store (buying snuff?), recently released their debut CD on Worthless Junk Records (the band has a split 7-inch with label mates No BS Brass Band on tap for this summer) and copped Style's readers' poll as Richmond's best rock band. Featured here is an alternate version of Black Girls' signature vamp, "Get Off," recorded at Sound of Music studios.”

“Black Girls were voted Best Rock Band of 2011, so you can imagine how excited we were when they joined us to talk music, play some original tunes and get goofy live with the guys. We also dug up a bit about the bands history, influences and they revealed their secrets about the best place to pick up cougars in Richmond(you'll just have to listen to find out). It was easy to see why they where voted Rock Band Of The Year once they started playing and Dan spared no complements when verbally fluffing their egos. Though Manzelli is no longer with the show, in this episode we introduced Shaun to fill both his seat and his elf shoes. No new content, but we promise big things next week.”

"Here’s one band I want to get to know better: Black Girls. On their MySpace page, they describe themselves as playing “Glam / Hip Hop / Surf,” and that they do. They have a lo-fi quality, sorta Beach Boys jamming with Beach House, Ween and Cody Chesnutt. Their lilting, economic compositions are somewhat funky without being repulsive, meditative without being morose, and captivating without begging for attention. I’ll have to see them live sometime."
