Most of Girls' songs warble with the same somberness of Blue Hawaii (and don't think we didn't notice singer Chris Owens "Presley" bracelet), and "Solitude," now available for download from their UK label, Turnstile, upcoming b-side to the epic "Hellhole Ratrace," lumbers along just as thick with real sap. Despite it's title, this is a love song not to solitude but to possibility. Maybe I'll settle down with you, which is somewhere reassuring, especially when it cherry-tops a song that has him sleeping in my clothes next to the BART. If you are sleeping at the station after you missed the last train back from Oakland instead of going home with whoever she is, you are keeping your options open.
