TV Girl, The Wild The Innocent The TV Shuffle

Blake Gillespie

TV Girl

San Diego's TV Girl is the latest expectation demolisher on Himanshu's Greedhead label. Much like Oakland's Twin Steps, TV Girl craft meta-doo wop, as though a time traveler took a wormhole back to the 60's for the sole purpose of handing Phil Spector a sampler and a stack of hip hop's finest sampling achievements.

Funny thing is, last year I was not ready for TV Girl. I was sent their “Benny And The Jetts” track and passed on them. I cannot recall why I declined to cover TV Girl, possibly that morning I was having a negative reaction towards sounds too sugary in pop. Perhaps I had still not let go of lo-fi snobbery? This morning though, after hearing “I Wonder Who She's Kissing Now”, I feel it necessary to admit I was wrong. TV Girl still sneak a few sucrose cavities into The Wild The Innocent The TV Shuffle, but with bands like The Stepkids and Twin Steps warming me to the retro-future machinations of being both skilled instrumentalists and samplers I am finally ready to accept TV Girl in the speakers. The sunshine and cool breeze coming in the window played a small role as well.
