Today's adventures in Myspace
First, random friend request from Skilf. Similar to his fellow british hip hop brethren, this guy is also quite good. Although, surely he gets a ton of The Streets comparisons/rip-off accusations.
Naked Hearts. Sound a lot like travels/Metal Hearts. Saw these guys open for The Secret Life Of Sofia @ Union Hall this past Sat. Was very impressed. They are playing with The Loom and past KOers The Party Faithful (former Lolita Bras) and Bridges and Powerlines @ Delancey on Dec 6. Check them out, you won't regret it.
ps - TSLOS were great too, as usual, but I wish they played for a little longer.
Links. Heard these guys on WOXY and then checked out their Myspace. Some good old rock and roll. Kind of like Sam Champion. The classic 'band standing in front of a wall' press shot:
quiet Loudly. Good use of capitalization. These guys are playing with The Antlers & Pet Ghost Project (Who I have been meaning to post about FOREVER and finally have, sort of) at Public Assembly on Jan 15. Their "sounds like" describes them well:
if Slowdive, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Mogwai, The Beach Boys, Radiohead, and The Constantines were all swallowed whole by three gigantic psychedelic robots from the future and told to kick out the jams, motherfucker.
I would have posted a pic of them too, but I couldn't find any decent shots.
And finally, a flyer:
If there is a way to somehow combine this with the TL&Rx karaoke show, that would indeed be one hell of a night.
