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. ┬áTheir 2014 debut Dehumanize on Help Yourself Records solidified their place in the indie pop world, and Hardly Art Records has taken over┬áthe reigns for a more polished sophomore effort. ┬áOur first taste of the Sincerely LP is Black Jack, an addicting glittery┬áriffer from the school of Rivers Cuomo with enough sugar overload to keep┬áthat smile frozen on your face for the long haul. ┬áLyrically, the band is tackling harder issues like anxiety and declining mental health, but this┬áain’t a buzzkill rekkid. ┬áDude 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. ┬áProbably less.
