Girlpool: Before The World Was Big

artworks-000106568525-sn1axh-t300x300Girlpool’s first full length release does not disappoint. Just as edgy as ever, the Girlpool duo is not afraid to speak up and sing out. Girlpool’s simple chord progressions, easy basslines, and spoken lyrics border an experimentation with minimalism.

These lo-fidelity lovelies don’t let their young age or the patriarchy prevent them from being powerful. There’s not a song on this album without wonderfully crafted songwriting and lyrics.

This LP is seriously impressive. Pay attention to the lyrics, pay attention to Girlpool. I promise you won’t regret it.
