Brooklyn indie rockers the Virgins debut with their self-titled effort, which recalls the rock-&-roll swagger of the Strokes' Is This It? leavened with some more overt 1980s influences of New York contemporaries such as Vampire Weekend. First single "Rich Girls" is the album's strutting calling card, with "Teen Lovers," the sneering "She's Expensive," and "Radio Christiane" among the other highlights. The Virgins is available both on CD and as a vinyl LP.
