Indiepop Blast From the Past: Airport Girl
I’m one of those weirdos that trolls all my favorite things…I subscribe to everything and anything that I love…that’s how I was reminded yesterday of this incredibly great Airport Girl tune when it popped up on FortunaPop’s Youtube channel (not sure why?). This track goes all the way back, but sounds like just about everything I love about the indiepop genre. It’s got a powerful fuzzed out guitar working beneath a cleaner cut version; giving sort of a rambunctiousness to the overall sound; it’s like if Comet Gain sounded noisier and maybe even a bit braver. I mean, they flesh it out with horns! If you’re wandering where this track came from; there’s an appearance on the Honey, I’m an Artist LP, as well as via 7″ from, label owner and band member, Fortuna Pop (yes, that’s his name!). Sure, the song’s almost 20 years old, but I got sent a bunch of bullshit hip-hop yesterday, so I’m traveling back in time to when things were good.
