Though they've only been around for a little over a year, Girls Are Waiting To Meet You (aka GAWTMY) has already seen a few band member changes. Luckily, that hasn't kept them from recording their debut. An amalgam of Irish melodies, Swedish indie pop, mellow blues-rock and gypsy tunes, this self-titled album showcases an adventurous collective from all corners of the globe, willing to play music on the subway with no regard for the police ­ not an easy task with a seven-man band playing instruments as diverse as the flute, saxophone and ukulele. The ten songs alternate between cheerful and gloomy; scattered throughout are smidgens of harmonica and piano. Some listeners might be amused to find sound-bites from a certain CCTV-9 show on "Early Findings," a brave attempt at the ultimate act of punk-against-the-machine, where violin (rather than electric guitar) does the job.
