U.S. Girls have a new album out this week on KRAAK. Meghan Remy of U.S.Girls was so smitten with her new label that she incorporated it into her album title, U.S. Girls On KRAAK. It's a fitting title as Remy's identity is tugged into weirdo- pop songs, covers of Brandy & Monica's hit, ambient interludes and country ballads. "The Island Song" is an instant standout as Remy's voice is strained and scratchy, but in her almost skat style it is her greatest instrument above the drones and percussion.
A video shot in reverse only adds emphasis to Remy's esoteric mush-mouth chorus, since we can't even read her lips for hints beyond "you say you wanna go…"
U.S. Girls On KRAAK is out now on CD and LP.
