U.S. Girls is just one American woman named Meg Remy. Her 2012 release, Gem, is an assortment of spooky, lo-fi ballads that sound like they seeped out of the glam rock graveyard. Songs like “Jack” and “Slim Baby” conjure the swagger of Marc Bolan, infused with a groove like Grace Jones and slick croons reminiscent of Joan Jett. The perfect soundtrack for modeling your lamé hot pants before taking on the night.
