Vivian Girls: Live at WFMU on Michael Goodstein's Show on 9/6/2008
The new darlings of the music blog world, the Summer of 2008 will be remembered as having belonged to the Vivian Girls. The scarcely one-year-old workaholic New York City/New Jersey trio have completed two full tours, released three records, including their debut full length, and emerged as the brightest hope in the now vibrant Indie/Noise Pop scene. Their reverb-drenched pop sound combines elements of the classic C86 sound (Shop Assistants, Jesse Garon & the Desperados, Bubblegum Splash, etc.), the American bands who loved it (Black Tambourine), while maintaining an invigorating contemporary rawness. Their self titled debut full length, which sold out hours after release will be reissued on In the Red in September. -Michael Goodstein Sept 2008 (WFMU Playlist and Archive)

Cassie, Katy, and Ali really hit their stride on this one. It was released on a self-released CD-R in 150 hand-numbered copies. And just released on vinyl by Troubleman Unlimited. Limited to 1000 copies: 900 with original artwork, 100 with alternate colors on the covers (50 given to band and 50 given to friends). My favorites: Surfin Away, Tell The World, Wild Eyes, I Can't Stay...wait they're all good
