Song Wars #1

Update: The Winner is… Girls!

Another wonderful idea from those Candepop people, Rebecca this time. Two songs enter, one song leaves. There can be only one! and other bad movie lines, you get the idea anyway.

Two new (ish) releases this week:

Avey Tare is one of the Animal Collective, and his solo music is pretty similar to his day job. This is his latest single ‘Oliver Twist’. His latest video is a weird and wonderful animated tale.

Girls are a two piece band from San Francisco, who’s new album ‘Father, Son, Holy Ghost’ is making waves in all the right publications. Vomit is their latest single off the album. See what you think…

  1. I’m a big Girls fan and I included their last EP, Broken Dreams Club, in my NoMoreWorkHorse Best of 2010 so it’s nice to see them in the first Song Wars! So this one is easy for me 🙂

  2. I was thinking that – perhaps we need to be clear on the premise – i.e. it’s the song we’re judging not the video and not the combination of song + video… hmmm 🙂

    • I was kind of leaving that open to viewer interpretation. Although i would say that Sledgehammer is the perfect combination of both song and video, and all others are inferior.

      Seems Adam and Paul have rights to the ‘Songwar’ name also! Do you think they’d mind?
