With their excellent sophomore album Father, Son, Holy Ghost, San Francisco garage rockers Girls seemingly decided to up the...well, everything. With influences ranging from classic rock to surf to shoegaze, Holy Ghost took bits and pieces of 50 years of rock tradition and filtered it all through lead-singer Christopher Owens’ doe-eyed, hangdog persona. Below, check out the exclusive premiere of album highlight “Love Like A River,” beautifully filmed for the For No One sessions. It is a typically raw performance of a song that, even at first listen, has the timeless sound of oldies FM radio. You can also cop the album for a special low price over at Amazon.
As a bonus, tell us what you think love is like, and you could win two tickets to Girls' January 14th show at Terminal 5 in NYC. It’s a testament to Girls that they can dream up a simile like that and still avoid sounding cheesy — we dare you to do the same. We’ll pick a winner this Wednesday at noon.
