San Diego’s mixmaster duo, TV Girl, are set to release their first full length mixtape, The Wild, The Innocent, The TV Shuffle. The first two tracks really amp up the retro groove. “I Wonder Who She’s Kissing Now” and “Misery” play on familiar themes: longing, rejection, and lost love. However, you get the sense that Trung Ngo and Brad Petering are having fun with it all. On “Misery”, Petering provides a tongue-in-cheek proclamation for his love of that melancholy mind state. Read his commentary on Portals about “Misery” and the inspiration behind it.
The Wild, The Innocent, The TV Shuffle is set for release in May. Word has it that the mixtape will be freely available. You can also download their first two EPs for free from their Facebook site. They’re great about updating the site with news and links. Please consider ‘liking’ TV Girls.
