‘Let’s Jet’/’Futz’ by Josephine & Hershguy
From the glammy, powerpop, rock n’ roll world of DIG! Records come Josephine & Hershguy. The pair are known for their involvement in NYC DIY groups; Brower, Dirty Fences and Velveteen Rabbit (add Kansas City’s The Whiffs and Chicago’s The Rubs and we’ve got our dream gig. How about a Union Pool Covid comeback gig 2022?!). ‘Let’s Jet’ is the first track to drop from the forthcoming album ‘Stocky Tunes’, and it’s a socially distanced, good time stomper. It’s two and a half minutes of strutting Milk ‘n’ Cookies glam pop, with riffing guitars and sugar candy camp vocals. The other available track to stream ahead of the album release is ‘Futz’, a miniature lo-fi opus à la The Quick doing nursery rhyme Ramones. The album promises “a celebratory rock’n’roll smorgasbord of far-reaching sounds and sonic bedlam”, which sounds like a helluva lot of fun and we’re ready!

These will kill you with classic brill building to Beach Boys pop, vintage sounding 60’s and 70’s AOR FM/AM hits, snappy, lo-fi drum machines, pop hooks and nonsense fun, and that’s what you need even if you don’t know it!
