TV Girl release new EP

"Benny and The Jetts" up for free download on Facebook

By Peter Holslin
When Rhino Entertainment cracked down on TV Girl's Todd Rundgren-sampling track "If You Want It" last month, the local indie-pop duo issued an eloquent letter defending their right to sample anybody they want.

They drive their point home on their new EP,
Benny and The Jetts, a summery pop confection in which they not only use plenty of samples, but reference Elton John, give shout-outs to Richard Hell and African drumming and allude to musical plunder in general ("I wrote a new song / It sounds like one of your songs").

Yep, these guys clearly love wearing their influences on their sleeves. You can stream the EP below and
download it for free on their Facebook.
