Tripwire pointed us to this video of Christopher Owens playing a song he says is Dwight Yoakim inspired and that he'd like Taylor Swift to cover it. Then he carves out the inside of your heard with a rusty guitar pick playing new song "Oh My Love." It sounds a smidgen like Elliott Smith. Thanks to Travis Matthews who shot the song. Owens himself shot Girls' July tour diary (after the jump), the highlight of which is the completely bonkers footage of them in Spain when Spain won the world cup. Also good to know he's been listening to Pet Shop Boys and reading Gore Vidal and that 10 smajillion people still love their band, but people losing in the streets is always a winner.
