DALE EARNHARDT JR. JR. TO PLAY BROOKLYN BOWL, TICKETS ON SALE NOW
The Detroit-based duo Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott) is hard to classify. The label calls them “indie-pop.” If you were going to coin one of those annoying, overused and mostly meaningless genre mashups writers like to coin for music outside an easy to draw frame, you might call them indie-alt-digital-folk-garage-rock-pop. Regardless of what you call them, you can feel how much fun they’re having the whole time, and just like laughter or Hep C, it’s highly contagious.
Their debut album, It’s a Corporate World, comes across as an extended, full-length version of last July’s Horse Power EP more than it does something completely new, both sonically and because it includes all three of the EP’s original tracks (omitting only their worth-buying cover of “God Only Knows”). Given that all three tracks are solid and also a perfect fit, it’s no wonder they used up a quarter of the album to include them. -via Paste Magazine
