We’ve been keeping U.S. Girls‘ latest longplayer U.S. Girls On Kraak on repeat for a few weeks now (you can read our glowing review here) and we’re still entranced with it. The news that Meghan Remy had started a new label called Calico Corp with fellow experimentalist Slim Twig was music to our ears (aside from all the other, literal music sliding in there) and even better, she’s released a new 7″ version of ‘The Island Song’. The single is just the first of a planned two; no word on what the other is yet, but you can stream and buy ‘The Island Song’ as well as the beautiful B-side ‘High School Poetry’ below. Be sure to check out Slim Twig’s ‘There’s A Secret To Your Pleasure’ 7″ as well for some punky, bluesy garage deliciousness.
