I would like to go to San Diego some day because judging from the music that people from San Diego make, it seems like the sunniest, happiest place on Earth. Even a song called “Misery” sounds incredibly happy and up beat. “Misery” makes use of a recognizable oldie sample, as many other TV Girl songs do, and breathes new life into it with a beautifully arranged percussion track, and some more upfront than usual vocals from TV Girl lead singer Trung Ngo. TV Girl will be releasing their debut full project in the form of a mixtape on Heems (of Das Racist)’s record label, Greedhead, in May and I am sure that it will be one of the more perfect summer soundtracks to be put out in a while.
P.S. If you want to read about the song’s birth, death, and eventual reincarnation from Trung himself, head over to Portals for the scoop HERE
