Boomkat Product Review:
Meghan Remy has been gifting us with her outerzone pop songs for ages now, but ‘GEM’ is probably her biggest, most complete record to date, landing fittingly on the Fat Cat imprint. We had a tantalizing taster with jaunty lead single ‘Jack’ (itself a cover of a grimy glam rock track about Jack the Ripper) so it shouldn’t be a shock that ‘GEM’ follows in its footsteps and fleshes out Remy’s gruesome obsessions with glam, 50s pop music and saturated tape sounds. While there will be some out there who miss her truly out-there world music experiments, this new flirtation with glam rock works wonders for the US Girls sound, and she manages to transform a loathed genre into something quirky, enjoyable and sort of credible. Remy’s sincerity is the key, and while she trips and falls over the genre itself, the resulting songs are dirty and unusual enough to transcend the awfulness of our memories of the Bay City Rollers and come out the other side smelling of roses. Fans of lo-fi pop, C86 or even just good old-fashioned songs should give this a closer look.
