Von Iva, Girls on Film EP. The three ladies of Von Iva want to make you shake, and as good as this material sounds on record, it'll be ten times better live. Six tracks of dance-floor electro-rock summon both Annie Lennox, in Jillian Iva's powerful vocals, and Blondie, in the band's aggressive use of synth and drum machines. Girls on Film packs a punch and teases better things to come. (self-released)
