Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.: She'll Show You Pictures

It took me a long time to pay attention to Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.  I had heard about the Indie-Pop duo before, but I figured any consideration they gained was simply from their name, and without listening to them I wrote them off as a passing band.  I was wrong.  Just as your mom told you not to judge a book by its cover, you shouldn't judge a band by its name.  Sure the name is silly, and Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott have been known to wear NASCAR outfits on stage, but the music is legit.  Their music is catchy to say the least, and uses 70's pop as a base.  Their debut full length album It's a Corporate World was released in early June of this year.

Perhaps the best showcase of how Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. draws on 1970's pop for inspiration comes in the form of "Simple Girl".  Recently the duo recorded this song and others in a session with Rolling Stone.  Take a listen to "Simple Girl" by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
