Thank god for Girlpool

Amen for Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad, an impossibly young duo from Los Angeles rebelling against the hordes of L.A. groups going for dark, sexy, dreamy, mysterious. Bands that go for the mysterious vibe really don't have much of anything interesting going on, in truth.

Girlpool, nothing more than guitar, bass, and honesty, are what riot grrrl was built on, and first single "Jane" is the perfect feminist follow-up to the Peppermints' "Nancy," which already, sadly, seems long forgotten. You can pre-order their Girlpool EP (released Nov. 18) here prior to visiting their Monday night residency at the Echo in December!

Psst -- they're playing with Slutever on Dec. 1.
