I briefly mentioned the murky, lo-fi noise-pop of Toronto‘s Little Girls a couple weeks ago, and the group has since made us aware of a couple of impending releases that you should know about. There’s a 7″ coming soon on Captured Tracks (home of Blank Dogs and Dum Dum Girls), with a 12″ called Thrills to follow on Mexican Summer (Ariel Pink, Marissa Nadler, etc). “What We Did“, which will appear on the 12″, is laced with a gloomy, almost sinister nostalgia that seems to haunt all of his/their work:
