    Girls On World Cafe Hear the garage band perform its effortlessly contagious, retro-inspired rock on today's show.

The music of California based Girls is so revered, their new album is being called "the blessed trinity."  Their new album's actual title "Father, Son, Holy Ghost" has a lot to do with the nickname, but critics seem to unanimously agree that Girls can do no wrong. 

Girls strikes the careful balance of creating music that sounds classic without writing something that's already been done.  From their first album, "Album", Girls has been writing and recording music that is familiar, urgent and surprisingly simple. 

The new album, which came out in September, features love songs like "Honey Bunny" and ballads such as "Vomit."  In addition to new romances and new experineces that are poured into the tracks, there is also a new sense of maturity to this album.  Girls has been touring nationally to support "Father, Son, Holy Ghost" and has released a number of retro-themed videos, as well.  Check out new music from "Father, Son, Holy Ghost" on today's World Cafe and hear them play live.
