Vivian Girls release new organ-inflected, Bacharach-inspired album on Polyvinyl

Vivian Girls are back and they want to Share the Joy. Okay, well, maybe they don’t want to, like, pass you some goofballs or buy you an ice cream sundae, but that IS the name of their new album. It’s their third overall and their first for Polyvinyl. Recorded at Rear House, Jarvis Taveniere of Woods’ home studio, the title was inspired by a Burt Bacharach song and promises lots of organ. This makes me excited because I’m a 90-year-old church organist and I totally love both Burt and a lil’ bit of sassy organ. And Vivian Girls. I love Vivian Girls, too. See? The joy (or at least my giant wine bottle-sized cup of Starbucks) is already spreading throughout my body!

Share the Joy is slated for an April 12 release, and the band starts touring at the end of the month.
