EDITORS’ NOTES

If the girls from Girls formed a band, they’d probably sound like this New York trio. Kay Kasparhauser, Lulu Prat, and Rachel Trachtenburg create honest, whip-smart songs about being a twentysomething. “Boys (That I Dated in High School)” is a hilarious litany of losers, combining The Waitresses’ sassy New Wave with Jeffrey Lewis’ anti-folk. They take as much from doo-wop as they do from indie rock, whether singing about depression (“Suicide Hotline”) or comparing a boyfriend to a character from Law & Order (“Stabler”).
