Lovely Little Girls is a theatrical art-rock band from Chicago that features members of Cheer-Accident and The Flying Luttenbachers. They specialize in odd harmonies and catchy melodies served with a histrionic flair. "Effusive Supreme", their third LP for SKiN GRAFT Records, delves into more personal and abstract territory, highlighting the utilitarian and fetishistic relationship to shoes on one track, while enthusiastically accepting ego-death's indifferent embrace on the next. Equally informed by Magma and Dead Kennedys, Lovely Little Girls pull from a range that runs the gamut yards past the finish line - everything from Esquivel to Toto. PRESS QUOTES: "What makes Lovely Little Girls unique is the care for complex arrangements, creating quirky prog-no wave hybrids... impressive psychodramas of melodic detours and anguished explosions - full of theatrical uneasiness" - ChainDLK "Stuns listeners into submission with heavy doses of horns and lyrical flogging. Equal parts jazz, prog, and avant-garde, this horde of provocateurs revels in disturbing the peace" - Razorcake "Lovely Little Girls deal in absurd and jarring contrasts. The group's knotty, intricate songs heave and dance and skitter - sometimes gracefully dexterous and sometimes grotesquely lumpy - but clearly the work of formidably talented musicians with vivid imaginations. Jacobsen's demented lead vocals flicker from frighteningly histrionic to carefully declamatory, with eruptions of abject mania or borderline obscenity, while behind him a chorus of singers might deliver a pristine, almost angelic chant of "the pain, the horror"... - Chicago Reader "Lovely Little Girls are your favourite cartoon villains, plotting the takeover of the city before the Joker does".
