The Tripwire has been quoted as saying "The Jealous Girlfriends are a Brooklyn quartet that sounds like Mazzy Star seducing the New Pornographers. It's a mix of longing shoegaze and perfect pop, creating a lush and wonderful pallet of wonderful complimentary sounds...Summertime in the sun belongs to the Beach Boys, but when the sun goes down evenings in the summer now belong to The Jealous Girlfriends." Well summer's officially over; now what?
2008 has definitely been a good year for the Girlfriends, so why not round it out by touring with one of the UK's seminal, preeminent indie-rock groups who harken back to a day when "indie" was a sound and "seminal" and "preeminent" were useful adjectives? For the record, we don't know what else The JG's have in store for the rest of the year, but touring with The Wedding Present is one way to wrap up a fine summer. Another way is by creating a beautiful video for their single, "Organs On The Kitchen Floor."
