Girls

After dropping a slew of delicious singles in 2008 and early '09, the group's debut album, titled simply Album, came out on the indie imprint True Panther Sounds. It proceeded to crack the Billboard 200. At first blush, mainstream success seems really quite improbable, but beneath the fuzz and f-bombs (Owens curses quite a lot, in fact) lurks a genuine and well-informed love for vintage bubblegum (Tommy James) and pub rock (Elvis Costello).
