Megan Remy's alter ego, U.S. Girls, rattles along with a sublime mechanic clatter and minimalist spirit. Her original compositions are sparse tug-o-wars between hollow drums and her strained vocals with little patience for production. Dark corners of isolation and rubbed raw emotion bristle up into sonic forms leaving visible marks on your skin from their caustic movements on her Siltbreeze debut, Introducing. Even more interesting is seeing her tear into others' work; as she dismantles, re-tools and re-assembles the remnants of Bruce Springsteen's "Prove It All Night" and The Kinks' "Days" into bare reminders of their former lives. A decidedly static crust free Siltbreeze release but where her label mates use blunt force to pry open your psyche, Remy creeps in through your pores and takes over before you realize what's happened. A wonderfully sinister record that reveals much more than its simple pieces would have you believe on first listen.
