New West Indian Girl – “To Die In L.A.”

Saw a nice outpouring of support for West Indian Girl when last we got to hear some new stuff, but didn’t want to leave you with just MySpace streams to sate your Girlish desires. We talked about how 4th & Wall’s tracklist seems to have a water theme streaming through it, and how the album’s name is a reference to “an old warehouse surrounded by a humble community of homeless people living in cardboard boxes and tents” for whom WIG play regularly, but preceding all of that heaviness, you have to note they’re a Cali band (which may explain the watery compassion). And so “To Die In L.A.” sets a scene via title, and the sound’s perfectly on point too, like if Wayne Coyne went down to Malibu and spent some time beach bumming before hitting the studio.

Back by popular demand, the promo photo…



And, the music…

West Indian Girl – “To Die In L.A.” (MP3)

Swirly! And probably the most uplifting song you’ll hear about dying in Southern Cali. 4th & Wall is out 10/23 on Milan.
