Part of me doesn’t see the merit in mentioning something that has already blown-up all over the blogosphere, but I did find today’s news that Christopher Owens, frontman of indie band Girls, split from the group — or, rather, from that one other guy in the band — pretty interesting. Girls owes a lot to his distinct vocals, and it’s unclear if former bandmate Chet “JR” White is going to continue on without him.
Fun fact: Owens was brought up as a part of the Children of God cult based in Texas. Neat.
If anything, this gives me a pretty solid excuse to post the great music video of their song “Lust for Life,” from their debut album, Album, which came out in 2009. Their latest offering, Father, Son, Holy Ghost was released in 2011.
