“If I gotta be a jerk to the ones who really work to get ahead…”

“Be A Jerk” by Boy Girl Party | Nothing says “jerk” like a decidedly assured whistle. That said, this is a fun song. Boy Girl Party strikes me as a bit like the Ting Tings, only from Brooklyn and with more members. I also say this because this song – off their 2012 EP Dear Dear, available for download here – starts off with a filthy, partly obvious rhythm riff, before that whistle, before Melissa Lusk’s vocal, which tells you that, yes, this is a Brooklyn band. And then it goes in an indie pop direction, but the misdirection is an appreciated one. Now, for this song to be the equivalent of flipping the bird at someone, as Dexter, who sent this over, intended to do. (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
