Debut 7-inch single by Chicago-by-way-of-Detroit's uncle & nephew duo Casimer&Casimir featuring their song O Sweet Joe Pye that Indie Shuffle describes as being, "a work of pop art in music form,” while Pitchfork explains that the, "lyrics elevate a bouncy, harmony-flecked ditty into a thought-provoking, lingering commentary on the slow decline of their hometown." The B-side boasts a translated & re-imagined version of Anne Cherchait l'Amour originally recorded by French synthpop pioneers, Elli et Jacno.
