TV Girl sounds like a French record shop in Los Angeles got swallowed by a toy beat machine, which then got played by a guy on acid who loves indie rock, hip-hop and disco in equal measure. The (almost always) solo project of LA-based producer/musician Brad Petering, TV Girl has managed to keep that nostalgic and groovetastic kind of magic alive over the course of a surprising number of albums, going back to 2010. Petering has a special knack in his production for creating lackadaisical, wispy, and dreamy atmospheres, building samples and beats into hypnotic patterns and layering washed-out vocals. His music is consistently interesting and always dancefloor ready, as long as the dancefloor’s not looking to wove too fast. Dig tvgirl.bandcamp.com for the whole TV Girl catalog, including this year’s rad Death of a Party Girl LP.
