Girls - "Laura"

The critically acclaimed and much-adored Girls debut Album has earned comparisons from Elvis Costello to Roy Orbison. But another apt influence is Gordon Gano, the great former lead singer of the Violent Femmes. Like the often frenzied and self-aware Gano, Girls frontman Christopher Owens wields an expert voice comprised of a perfected slop and slur technique with which, in his narrative as an eccentric and outsider, he uses to speak to and for the kids.
