Title: Kankakee Memories
Format: 7"
Label: Cherry Burger
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"English is my mother tongue but this Italian guy I found on Myspace has put it better than I could: "Your sound is primitive, essential and very good." U.S. Girls doesnt need you to know more than that. She is a girl making music in her bathroom on a cold Chicago (now Philly) night." - Cherry Burger. Previous release on Siltbreeze.
SOLD OUT

Artist: U.S. GIRLS
Title: Gravel Days
Format: CDR
Label: Chocolate Monk
Country: UK
Price: $10.00
"Meghan Remy continues her one woman crusade to drain all humankind of bad blood and garbage, refilling our boots with hissed out affection while dousing us in white thunder. Hear the sound of a skull full of quartz being pounded by tiny yet powerful hands and listen to her inveigling vocals, the kind of thing Phil Spector hears in his pill poping nightmares. Note to Prog logs, this baby is a short and sweet slide (19mins)." -Chocolate Monk. Previous release on Siltbreeze.
SOLD OUT

Artist: U.S. GIRLS
Title: Rosemary
Format: 7"
Label: Electric Voice
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"Here comes US GIRLS resurrecting puzzled memories. Nostalgia to be unsure of, or maybe days lost behind thick shadow. Something is bubbling to the surface, but why is it happening? Strange, this is innocent melody at drift on waves of tape disintegration. Shes a one woman call and responder dialing up minimalist lines and beats. A loner. And of course, these two jams are crooned so hard and with such ease that we fall deep within the emptiness on either side. This is music with plenty of space for being dissolved, and sure, it could even be the gift of an inner door that opens on and on."-Pigeon Row. Edition of 300 copies.
SOLD OUT

"21 minutes collecting 8 out of print tracks from her 1st 2 7"s and cassingle. Pro-dub, silkscreen, velcrow enclosure." -Medusa.

Artist: U.S. GIRLS
Title: Me & Yoko
Format: 7"
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"There⿿s no disputing the truth that certain formats befit certain artists. Think about it: where⿿s the logic in Tangerine Dream rocking a 3-way split 3⿝ CDR? Those fools need room to roam. Conversely, why would Orthrelm drop a 4xLP? Who needs 160 minutes of 8-second spazz songs? The medium is a message, man. And for Megan Remy⿿s brief, brave re-imaginings of guitar/voice pop rapture done under the U.S. Girls flag, the 45 RPM 7 inch single is the absolute dream medium for transporting said sounds to the interested earhole. Short and sweet (and chemical) like a sugar rush, Me + Yoko is her latest reverb-gaze drug nugget in a string of strong singles (following releases on Hardscrabble Amateurs and Cherry Burger), and it⿿s another keeper. Whistling to life with a scrap of found sound/dialogue, the song then wings into a vague, hazed-out stone-toss between 2 tired notes (a dead ringer for that famous Les Rallizes Denudes bass riff), ebbing and flowing beneath smeary streaks of white-washed vocal blur. A Top 40 single for a universe of ghosts. The B, ⿿Rise + Go,⿝ might actually be the more aching of the two, a broke-down bedroom ballad, awash in sad seas of reverb, lapping at the shores of isolated islands, gently sailing into heartbreak. Sounds lo-fi but lush, like it was recorded high on a cloud on a cheap 80s boombox. Imagine that. Black vinyl 45 RPM singles, mastered by Pete Swanson, in photocopied sleeves with art by Remy. Edition of 380." -Not Not Fun

Artist: U.S. GIRLS
Title: Go Grey
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The second full-length release by U.S. Girls is an even more fully realized excursion into a hazy alternate universe where pop vocals and muzzy scree fuse in harmony. Go Grey conjures up ambient aerosols while luminous kaleidoscopes of sound sizzle, peak, and explode. Megan Remy is a chanteuse from (perhaps) the future, guiding all who choose to sail an evocative trip through her unique aural hallucinogenic landscapes. Its a journey of lush vistas, warm currents, and complex beauties. 23nd-Century-style, of course. So come aboard and see why U.S. Girls is being hailed the Eno of the 50s--the 2250s! Can you imagine? Lets hope so." - Siltbreeze.

Artist: U.S. GIRLS
Title: Introducing
Format: LP
Label: Siltbreeze
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"If the alluring moniker used by Megan Remy conjures images of volleyball teams or cheerleading squads, forget it. Not that theres any doubt that Remy--sorry, U.S. Girls--couldnt rise and conquer either challenge. Like fellow DIY ingenues Sally Strobelight and Inca Ore, U.S. Girls approach is deceptively ethereal and delightfully haunting; lithe, lysergic gamma rays of keyboard murk beamed over percussive bonk sort of resemble Diamanda Galas reinterpreting Suicides Red Star. And dig that cover of Bruce Springsteens "Prove It All Night," done in such an effortless, barbital lush youd swear the air was filled with mescaline. Guess what? Its not." - Siltbreeze
