Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – Hiding

dale

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is the eclectic Detroit duo that produces intelligent pop music wrapped up in quirky packaging. They released their LP The Speed of Things in 2013 and have been running full speed ahead ever since. The album is jam-packed with dancey and electronic indie hits, including tracks like “Hiding” and “Morning Thought” below. Seriously though, they’re all worth sampling, as their songs are laden with fantastic heartwarming hooks and seriously catchy riffs. Paul Simon even helped with production on one of their songs, “War Zone,” which is apparent upon one listen. I’m also digging the DATA Remix of their song “If You Didn’t See Me (Then You Weren’t On The Dancefloor)” — available for streaming below.

DEJJ kicks off their headlining tour tomorrow in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, culminating at NY’s Webster Hall the end of March. Full tour schedule below, but DCers can catch them at 930 Club next month.
