UH HUH HER, DJ KIM ANH
(Doug Fir 830 E Burnside) If the future of electronic pop music is anything like Uh Huh Her, then maybe we're not totally fucked. Named after a PJ Harvey album, Uh Huh Her has a vocal sound that could rival Garbage or Fiona Apple, but with catchy pop hooks, danceable beats, and electronic touches. UHH are based out of LA, and it shows; their 2011 Black and Blue EP sounds like the soundtrack to an evening out in Santa Monica, driving in a convertible along the coast with your friend Denny starting the night off with some coke bumps in the backseat. It's hard to say whether UHH will continue to gain momentum, but they certainly are easy to dance to, nicely coalescing a '90s rocker sensibility with an electronic backbone. ROSE FINN
