Girls follow their acclaimed 2009 debut, Album, with Broken Dreams Club, an ambitious EP that was whittled down from over 70 songs of newly recorded material.
Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Girls build elaborately arranged cuts like 'Alright,' and they toss in pedal steel and mariachi horns without losing spazzy energy."
Spin (p.72) - "Christopher Owens remains unchanged....Blessed with a documentarian's keen eye, he's the rare indie rocker with a tender hooligan's heart."
Paste (magazine) - "BROKEN DREAMS CLUB may be littered with broken hearts, but this Girls' EP is much more likely to steal yours than to shatter it."
