Girlpool – “Thirteen” (Big Star Cover)

Band To Watch Girlpool have recorded a cover of Big Star’s classic track “Thirteen” from their debut album, #1 Record. The original song is already pretty minimal so they don’t add too much, but the two of them sure as hell know how to harmonize, so it sounds pretty damn good. “Rock and roll is here to stay,” go the lyrics and it’s hard not to think that the young group looks very much like the future of the genre. Listen and download below.
