Is this record worth a spin? Should I buy it? Will it add to or detract
from my credibility? Should I care?
I wish someone could break it down for me.

Chrome Sparks- My Heart

Uplifting downtempo music from percussionist/electronic tinkerer Jeremy Malvin, a Michigan youngster who is relocating to Brooklyn, NY to concentrate full-time on his music. Somewhat precious in its instrumentation, but sweeping in stature, overall a futuristic version of what pop music will sound like.

Buy this record as a supplement to the hypertension medication you've been prescribed.

U.S. Girls- GEM

Like filtering the Ronette's " Be My Baby" through a car's carburetor. This Philly native's one-woman band leans toward traditional R&B, albeit masked in layers of reverb, tape hiss, and pre-programmed drum beats. Meghan Remy's voice has been justifiably compared to Ronnie Spector and is ripe for mass exposure. Right now she's manipulating knobs on the floors of dingy clubs but could easily find herself haunting the acoustic halls of Carnegie Hall.

Buy this record if you want to know what to sing in the shower with the water turned off.
