Girlush Figure

Target You

Richmond, Virginia’s Girlush Figure first album, Target You, is a suprisingly tight, well-produced piece of pop punk. The girls in the band wear their many influences on their sleeves, so bits of Bikini Kill, Tilt, and Hole are woven throughout the disc. Although it might seem the disc would be rather unoriginal, Squeaky, Pigpen, and the Captain manage to cut a swath through the heavily traveled punk rock jungles and emerge with nicely original songs that are instantly listenable and familiar. Girlush Figure also managed to put out a total DIY project that, frankly, doesn’t sound like a DIY project.
