Girls - Father, Son, Holy Ghost

So the magic widget Girls unleashed the other day was not, as hoped, a square of gradually appearing song titles, and this means the world will have to wait (always waiting!) some more for a track called “You Will Love Me, For All The Reasons Everyone Hates Me.” But that widget square did fill in on its own, and it turns out to be full of similarly vivid phrases full of self-loathing and insecurity with a dash of pomp and vanity that they could only be song lyrics of Chris Owens. And it also turns out to be the album cover to Girls’ anticipated third release (following up their debut LP Album and its succeeding EP Broken Dreams Club) titled Father, Son, Holy Ghost. (That’s a reference to the Bible. You’re welcome.)

The record’s due 9/13 via True Panther Sounds and features Owens and bassist Chet White joined by Darren Weiss and guitarist John Anderson. It was recorded in a makeshift studio full of nice amps in San Fransisco, and True Panther calls it “at times ebullient and at times absolutely devastating.” See what you can make of it from these song titles:

  1. I can’t decide if I love or hate the cover.

  2. This is the most interesting album cover of the year.

  3. amrit taking us back to Vacation Bible School, hilarious.

    I like the cover because I like to read!

  4. Not to be pedantic, but technically “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost” isn’t a Biblical reference. The doctrine of the Trinity as we know it developed after the Bible was written.

  5. i cannot believe how bad this album is!
