psychoPEDIA's excellent post on "girl" and "girl-named" bands and copped some news that got us very psyched indeed. Several-year favorites (and one of our earliest posts) The Morning After Girls are wrapping up their forthcoming sophomore effort, alone, and plan to tour this year, including at least one performance at SXSW on Saturday, March 21, 11:00 p.m. at Pangaea (409 Colorado St). We merrily tripped over to their MySpace site and enjoyed an excellent song called "Shadows Evolve," only to find it available for free download at their bandsite. We also enjoyed the previewed songs from alone and are quite confident this is going to be one of our favorite lps of the year. Here's the song, along with another one we previously posted from the Melbourne-Tasmania-New York band's self-titled debut. And if you haven't acquired others from said self-titled debut--especially the glorious "Run For Our Lives"--run for yours and get it here.
