RIYL: Pony Time, White Mystery
Label: Hardly Art
Seattle trio Dude York are serving up another keg of heavy pop for your parched ear cavities. Â Their 2014 debut Dehumanize on Help Yourself Records solidified their place in the indie pop world, and Hardly Art Records has taken overÂ the reigns for a more polished sophomore effort. Â Our first taste of the Sincerely LP is Black Jack, an addicting glitteryÂ riffer from the school of Rivers Cuomo with enough sugar overload to keepÂ that smile frozen on your face for the long haul. Â Lyrically, the band is tackling harder issues like anxiety and declining mental health, but thisÂ ain’t a buzzkill rekkid. Â Dude York belongs on your record shelf right next to your Thin Lizzy albums.
The first pressing will be on colored wax, and while there’s no word on the quantity, I don’t imagine there’s more than 1000 of these. Â Probably less.
