Joey Fourr = Mac DeMarco / (Alex Calder + Connan Mockasin)

The self-declared pop wonk of London three-piece Joey Fourr bears a noticeable resemblance to the dreamy rock and roll that Mac DeMarco strums to perfection. Press play on “Gold Boy,” and you might think you’re hearing an interpolation of any one of Demarco’s tracks from 2 with the rhythm sped up a notch. Despite its similarities to DeMarco’s music and other twangy-guitar-riff loving Captured Tracks artists, To The Floorr is incredibly fun and less serious than the aforementioned artists’ material. “Dirty Hole” and “Cross Dresser” are highlights, with the latter employing Joey Fourr’s fuzz roots to create a surfy pop anthem via guitars that romp like a pack of monkeys at the beach. Play this record with an open mind, and you’re bound to fall in love. –Justin Gallegos
