Toronto-based pop artist U.S. Girls (aka Meghan Remy) welcomed her most recent album, Gem, in October of 2012 via Fat Cat Records. Gem is a collection of warped pop that is centered around the sounds of '60s girl groups but is also quite theatrical. You can check out videos for the LP tracks "Jack" and "Work From Home" (NSFW) at the bottom of this post.
Remy will be taking U.S. Girls on a North American tour in February with husband/collaborator Slim Twig (aka Max Turnbull). That tour makes a stop at Chicago's Empty Bottle on February 2 for a show that also features Mayor Daley. Advance tickets are on sale now.
All U.S. Girls tour dates and a couple of videos are below...
