It’s starting to look an awful lot like the Jealous Girlfriends, they of the 8 NYC Bands You Need to Hear Class of ’07, have called it quits. Guitarist Josh Abbot and drummer Mike Fadem are plugging away in a promising new band called the New Numbers with members of The Comas and Sam Champion. And now, singer Holly Miranda has inked a deal with XL Recordings to release her first solo album in the beginning of 2010. Not much has been said about the full-length, but there’s a 7″ coming out in November, featuring a song called “Forest Green Oh Forest Green” and a cover of “Nobody Sees Me Like You Do” by Yoko Ono. Her 5-song “Sleep on Fire” EP is streaming at her website right now, and she’s currently on tour with Antlers, and she’s got some dates coming up with The xx and Wild Beasts, all of which are here…
