PlaygirlPosted: June 5, 2011
Thinking back over my 21 years of life, I can’t recall ever perusing the pages of or let alone holding a copy of Playgirl. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a copy in person, come to think of it. But I remember many a reference to it being made in various films and conversations and through that discovered it’s existence. Given that I am a male, I learned of Playboy quite early in life and of it’s purpose. I understood what it was for and acknowledged it’s influence on the world and just how widely appreciated it was. So when I learned about Playgirl, I figured it too served a purpose for a large group of people of comparable if not at least equal size to that of Playboy’s reader/beatership.
In French, Playgirl translates to Moi Je Joue. Which is both a song by Brigitte Bardot (drool) and the name of the band that I want to talk about today.
Moi Je Joue is a four-piece from my neck of the woods, the Rio Grande Valley; Harlingen to be exact. They have a very familiar and yet refreshing sound that leads me to believe that they have a tremendous amount of promise. So far, they have two tracks up on their Facebook page; one of which you will find posted below.
Moi Je Joue – Solutions
I’m really digging this track. It reminds me a lot of the Smiths for some reason. I can’t wait to hear what they record next.
If you live in the Rio Grande Valley, I highly recommend that you take the opportunity to see this band in action this Tuesday when they play Cine El Rey alongside Dignan and Twin Sister. It’s going to be one hell of a show; definitely not one to miss. Also, word seems to be spreading that Dignan is going to be playing new material along with a cover, which I find pretty damn exciting.
I don’t know about you, but I’m totally putting my money on Toto’s “Africa”.
What do you think they will/should cover?
