One of the more surprisingly awesome debuts of 2008 has to be Vivian Girls by, well, duh: Vivian Girls. If you’re not familiar, think of the Shaggs, but if they could actually play their instruments, and had the right mind to douse their songs in heaps of feedback, reverb, and psychedelia. There’s nods to the Jesus and Mary Chain, as well as all those precious girl groups hailing from the Motown era, but all the other blogs out there have probably told you that already. So, we’ll get out of the way here, and offer up instead the video for “Tell The World” — a sort of Fear and Loathing meets that one really scary scene in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, as the ladies sing in three-part harmony while being chased by some bats, only to finally join one of the best looking devils to ever make an appearance on film. If Hell is this rad, we’ll gonna stay bad forever. — Ryan Allen
