Return to Girl In A Coma

 

Sound Check

Girl in a Coma have been through some troubles lately, including a recent run-in with the law, but they've managed to continue to do what they have been doing for the last few years of their lives: Working on music non-stop. One of the hardest-working and most prolific bands around, it's probably no coincidence Joan Jett is their mentor and major support system.

The Texan trio's new album Trio B.C. is a little less fast-paced than 2007's Both Before I'm Gone but that does not make it any less exciting. Slow songs like "El Monte" show off the group's multi-faceted influences, from goth rock to old school rockabilly. Stand out track "Pleasure and Pain" is also a highlight, with pop elements that are more reminiscent of the first album's single "Say."
