U.S. Girls is the recording project of Meghan Remy, and "Half Free" is her debut for the celebrated 4AD label. The album offers an incisive collection of stories: political and personal, strange and familiar, deeply affecting vignettes. Musically the record provides a series of epiphanies: distinct arrangements that reach back across decades and genres whilst also looking forward to a brave pop future. Sample-based beats, '60s soul, experimental R&B, damaged dub and disco are some of the many reference points on this exceptional LP.
