If It Weren’t for Bands Like Sweater Girls, You Wouldn’t Exist

You see what we were talking about in that last post about the potential evils of dancing in the 50s and 60s? That period of abstinence didn’t last long, thankfully, because how are you going to keep the kids down once they hear a band that sounds like Sweater Girls? “Might as well pack up shop,” all the evil politicians and secret pervert religious dudes said. “We can’t fux with this.”

Once bands started singing pretty, jangly love songs about, like, their beds (do I need to spell out what that’s a metaphor about here?), all hell broke loose on dance floors the world over, which is good news for you because it led to your parents boning and you being born, then growing up one day to read about music on the internet while you’re at your job wishing you were boning/staying in bed. That’s called the circle of life.

OK, so Sweater Girls are actually a contemporary band from Los Angeles and not recent arrivals from a really kick ass party-time time machine, but you probably wouldn’t know any better if I told you other wise right?

Their album Sweater Girls Were Here arrives on September 25. In the meantime listen to a few more songs here.
