A Speakers Endorsed Show | US English EP Release Show

US English, the Saint Louis duo of James and Brea McAnally, just released the EP, Used Future, on Post Literate today! It’s the second effort in the now two-thirds complete trilogy, promised in the fall of 2010 when the two dropped the inaugural EP, What Frontier, on our asses.

Here’s what US English says about the new EP: “[It] emerges from the concept that whatever future we enter is predicated by our past, partially lived and already worn out. The second in a series of 3 EPs, Used Future blurs the lines between Kratwerk and Kanye, its distant digital environment exploring the dark corners of online culture and an era obsessed with repetition.”

To give you a visual of what they’ve just described, watch this video the band made for Used Future:

The single off the new release is “Lonely Internet.” It’s electro-pop, gloomy and foreboding, a statement about our reliance on the “other world” of the Internet while simultaneously questioning the true existence of that realm. Poof! and your browser history is deleted. Do all of those lost exchanges matter at all?

The band will celebrate its new music baby this Friday with a show at The Firebird, along with Bo and the Locomotive and So Many Dynamos. Doors 7:30, music starts at 8:30. Get tickets now!
