Women Get Retro Modern With New Album


By: Spacelab Research Stuff

Women have signed to Jagjaguwar for the release of their next album, a self-titled release due out on October 7th. Their sound is a spirited mix of lo-fi dark 60's pop with a Chad Van Gaalen influence, which comes as no surprise since he helped record the album. They wash it in a sonic aesthetic that sounds eerily modern.

Also, they're another band to add to the list of bands that have non-representative, non-literal names. Four dudes, not a single woman among them.

"The band's debut was recorded by Sub Pop and Flemish Eye artist Chad VanGaalen over 4 months on ghettoblasters and old tape machines in his basement, an outdoor culvert and a crawlspace. Sometimes light and spacious, at other times eerie and dense with an ominous weight, Women hint at the Velvet Underground, Swell Maps or This Heat; a lo-fi masterpiece cloaked in layers of vibrato and guitar wash."

Women will release their self-titled debut on October 7th via Jagjaguwar Records.
