U.S. Girls – Half Free
1 in stock (backorders allowed)
Vinyl LP pressing. The work of Illinois-born, Toronto-based artist Meg Remy, U.S. Girls has evolved in recent years from the coarse 4-track fidelity found on her early recordings to more luscious and unabashed works, packed with fiery pop sensibilities.
Half Free is the next step in this impressive progression, an honest and lyrically jarring exploration of emotions, drenched in a bath of raw beats and loops that have become the hallmark of her work with producer and frequent collaborator Onakabazien. Other album guests include Slim Twig (DFA), Ben Cook (F***ed Up, Young Guv), Amanda Crist (Ice Cream) and Tony Price. Following up on the release of the mutant dub of “Damn That Valley” in early 2015, second single “Woman’s Work” builds further anticipation and intrigue; Remy has delivered a nagging, arpeggio-laced stormer, picking away at the themes of beauty and neurosis.
