The Harvey Girls

BandPopAvant-garde

The Harvey Girls music stands as a cross between Prince Paul's production work and the songs of the Shangri-Las (that's what we're sticking with; feel free to come up with your own description). If you don't know who Prince Paul and the Shangri-Las are then just forget about it.

Biography

Melissa Rodenbeek and Hiram Lucke formed the harvey girls in August of 2003 in Lawrence, Kansas. The group, named after the waitresses who served travelers in the American West from the late 19th to the mid 20th centuries along the AT&SF railways, combine the melodies of bubblegum pop with experimentation in sound. Their music stands as a cross between Prince Paul's production work and the songs of the Shangri-Las (that's what we're sticking with; feel free to come up with your own description).

The Harvey Girls are a group that can argue about the merits of a much-needed editor for David Foster Wallace (or anyone who uses three damn names for that matter), claim that ABBA is the greatest pop group of all time without an ironic smirk, and bake you a decent cake for your birthday.
