Horsegirl - "Anti-glory"

Photo by Cheryl Dunn

We've been big on Chicago's Horsegirl ever since we first heard "Ballroom Dance Scene" last year. The band now consists of two college freshmen and one high school senior and are set to release their debut album. It's fitting that the album will be on Matador since the first single just sounds like classic Matador. "Anti-glory" is brilliant old school indie rock. It's filled with swirling and clunky guitars and that speak singing we all adored thirty years ago. Besides just being a nostalgia fest for the 90's, "Anti-glory" is a great song. It rocks in the best possible way, and besides having a throwback sound, it does sound like a modern take on a classic sound. This is what many of us wish some of our nostalgic favorites sounded like as they try to update their sound.

Horsegirl say of their new song:

We wrote Anti-glory almost by accident, while messing around with an old song during rehearsal. The song fell into place immediately, and looking back, we have no idea how we wrote it. As always, this song and album are for Chicago, our friends, our friend’s bands, everyone who can play the guitar, and everyone who can’t play the guitar.”
