6/2/2015: Girlpool, Before the World Was Big


Girlpool prove that electric instruments can foster intimacy too on their new Wichita release, Before the World Was Big. Reductionism pays off for guitarist Cleo Tucker and bassist Harmony Tividad: the ten tracks on Before the World Was Big resonate with meaning, rather than the self-absorbed hiss of musical egos. The title track is a strong point on the way to a climax of sorts in “Crowded Stranger.” “I Like That You Can See It” is a fittingly abrupt denouement.

Looking forward to more from Girlpool.
