Published Sep 11, 2013It's been about a year since U.S. Girls (a.k.a. Toronto-based artist Meg Remy) delivered her stellar, Slim Twig-produced GEM, but the outsider pop performer has some new tunes coming our way later this month. The newly announced Free Advice Column drops September 24 through Ben Cook's Bad Actors imprint.
As explained in a press release, the four-song effort has Remy further moving forward from her early lo-fi releases and offering up "her most commercial-sounding recording." The EP re-teams Remy with hip-hop producer Onakabazien, who had previously worked with Remy on a cover of Brandy and Monica's "The Boy Is Mine" for 2011's U.S. Girls on Kraak.
Free Advice Column is said to feature "classically-structured, narrative gems" driven by Remy's hypnotizing vocals, as well as moments where Remy manipulates Onakabazien's "psyched-out, deeply heavy beats."
Three songs are credited to U.S. Girls, while closer "Disco 2012" is listed as an Onakabazien track featuring U.S. Girls. You can sample opener "Overtime" in the player down below.
