Fresh off their eight-shows-in-five-days rip through New York for CMJ, Detroit's biggest buzz band since someone else, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. continues to traverse (dig this recent nod from ESPN) through the obstacles of indie stardom. It's incredible that so much hype has been produced off of their debut four-song EP Horse Power.
The DEJJ camps says a full-length record won't be ready till February at the earliest. In the meantime, the duo of Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott released a FREE live version of the unreleased jam "Simple Girl" via their Facebook page to satisfy those fans who are ready for a second serving.
This EP features killer remixes by two of Detroit's most current, fascinating and prolific musical acts in Prussia and Deastro. Going global, Copenhagen producer/singer Kasper Bjørke (a brighter, more house sounding Matthew Dear maybe?), along with Bristol beat brats Diego & the Dissidents, round out this audibly eclectic remix record.
Think about all the other crap you're probably going to spend $4 on this week, then think about copping some DEJJ.
