Meghan Remy, aka U.S. Girls (someone just walked by my desk and said, “Oh, us girls! It’s just us girls!” in an old lady voice), is a native Philadelphian who’s lived in every cool American city and now calls Toronto home. She’s released two LPs on the Siltbreeze label: 2008’s Introducing…, and 2010’s Go Grey. Her latest LP,GEM, released by Fat Cat, takes a new turn.
Pitchfork has weighed in on U.S. Girls on more than one occasion, singing such praises of GEM as, “ For every melodic nugget, there’s a hallucinatory loop, a cloudy drone, or what sounds like the remnants of an exploded pop song– half of a chorus, shards of a hook– echoing in the distance.”
We are also digging on U.S. Girls.
Check out Remy’s latest, “Work from Home.” It’s glamorous, hazy, NSFW… Oh yeah, and it’s a straight up good tune.
