Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun


They won’t have to wear a silly sombrero or hear a half-hearted team of waitstaff clapping and singing something that isn’t “Happy Birthday” over a melting scoop of ice cream with a candle, but today is the second day of the XX Merge birthday festival. Happy 20th Birthday, Merge! You’ll be able to drink legally next year! Considerate as they are, they have given us the gift of a Lou Barlow MP3 to celebrate. It beats the hell out of a High School Musical stationary set. Oh that Zack Effron, he’s so dreamy… The track is called “Gravitate” and is off his new album Goodnight Unknown. Make sure to write a thank you card. That’s proper ettiquite, at least that’s what Grandma always told me…


Check out Lou and his crew, the Missingmen on tour this fall. Alas, no Seattle date.
