Naturally, the name gets your attention right away: Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr. Whether you love it or hate it, it's hard to deny the Detroit duo's charmingly catchy indie pop, which is rooted in the harmonies of The Beach Boys, a band DEJJ covered on its Horse Power EP.

Daniel Zott and Josh Epstein have been favorites here at KCRW since the release of that EP and the remix EP that followed. Appropriately, the band introduced many of the songs from its forthcoming full length, It's a Corporate World, live on this session of Morning Becomes Eclectic, just a day or so before it hopped in a van and drove halfway across the country to dazzle audiences at SXSW.
