GEISHA GIRKS
GEISHA GIRLS
NUMBER 3

Angular punk rock trio Geisha Girls sound like a weird mix of Devo, Flipper, and X, as their artsy approach on songs like “Traced Lines” blurs a lot of old school edges. This Orange County residing outfit are darker and slightly more dissonant than most, giving songs like “This is Novelty” and “Retaining Water” a retro sting that may urge you to stick that safety pin somewhere visible after all. This 10-track affair exudes the kind of robotic grooves that The Cars and Yeah Yeah Yeahs employ with touches of U.K. street punk sensibility, single-handedly bringing abrasive riffs like “Skinny Wrists” back from the archives.
