Jahan Lennon (Zeb From PO PO) – “Don’t Come Around Here No More” (Tom Petty Cover)

After a years-long wait, PO PO finally released their stellar Dope Boy Magick LP earlier this year as a raga/grunge scuzz-pop outlier on Diplo’s Mad Decent label.

PO PO – “Let’s Get Away” (Stereogum Premiere)

“Let’s Get Away” is another step in the evolution of Philadelphia’s PO PO. This summer the brotherly duo delivered their “Bummer Summer,” a one-off that mutated their fuzzed garage punk into a steamy, dingy, slithering thing with thin guitars, a simple programmed beat and a scuzzy yet summery raga to the vocals.
