"Now Hear This"

One-time solo songwriter Holly Miranda met keyboardist/bassist Alex Lipsen at New York's Headgear Studios, the Brooklyn-based recording/rehearsal space that Lipsen owns. And thus were born the Jealous Girlfriends. Using their own space to full advantage, the Jealous Girlfriends have honed and refined their raw craft, a spoon-like modern twist on guitar rock. Miranda's voice carries a blues bite, which whips its way around challenging melodies. Lipsen fills in the gaps with chunky synths and buzzes, and his bass keeps Miranda's garage-rock guitar work sounding fresh and free of cliches. With drummer Josh Abbott, the expanded threesome released its debut full-length this month. It is about time, Miranda says. "I was used to playing solo folky stuff, and I'm kind of done with that now. I was ready to rock." A follow-up is already in the works. Contact: Holly Miranda,

Feeling a bit camera shy


Trickling beneath the seams of the Brooklyn indie scene is a band you probably haven't heard of yet. The Jealous Girlfriends formed in 2004 and have slowly built a momentus pressure, playing shows at venues like New York City's Mercury Lounge and featuring a song on HBO's "The L Word" Soundtrack. Their latest craft sparkles from every angle--boasting credits from Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs)--so much so, that the tinge of greatness sticks with you long after the record stops. The Jealous Girlfriends is a four-piece that could hold their own against supercollective Broken Social Scene. You can hear an inkling of influence from Sonic Youth to Billie Holiday, Blur to Edith Piaf, yet their sound is truly their own. You may not have heard of them yet, but The Jealous Girlfriends are sure to become your next favorite band.
