Brooklyn s Vivian Girls are back with Everything Goes Wrong,released almost exactly a year after In The Red s reissue of theirself-titled debut. The band have taken their time with this newalbum and recorded it in six days rather than the three theirdebut took though many of the songs were still recorded insingle takes. Over the last year, the Vivian Girls have touredthe US and Europe extensively, received a considerable amountof national and international press, sparked fierce debate as towhether they are a refreshing blast of unselfconscious punk rockenergy or a crew of contemptible, incompetent posers and, perhapsmost significant of all, become the subject of a question onthe Jeopardy game show.Everything Goes Wrong is a darker, moodier album than itspredecessor, with a couple tracks clocking in at almost twicethe length of anything on their debut. That said, the influencesremain the same; Ramones, 60s girl groups, surf, indie pop,etc., etc. This is immediately classic stuff.Watch for constant touring in late 09 and 10.One of the essential albums of 2009: this will be in many end of year lists.
