A few eventful occurrences have taken place since Vivian Girls dropped their sophomore effort, Everything Goes Wrong, back in 2009. In addition to her side project All Saints Day, Katy Goodman fronted a solo outfit, La Sera, whose debut self-titled LP comes out February 15th. Also, as we all remember, drummer Ali Koehler left the band for Best Coast and was replaced with Coasting’s Fiona Campbell. None of this slowed down the girl group from recording a new album, entitled Share The Joy, for their new label Polyvinyl. “I Heard You Say” is the first single, and you can download it for free.
It follows a pretty similar formula to the band’s earlier repertoire: surf pop with a garage rock swing, and Goodman habitually ooooohing and aaaaaahing. Share The Joy comes out April 12th, and was recorded at Rear House, the studio owned by Woods’ Jarvis Taveniere, who also engineered the album.
