Twiga celebrates EP release at Gold Sounds on 10.28

Brooklyn-based rockers Twiga bring their jangle-pop sound to Gold Sounds on October 28th to celebrate two things: The sugar-coated cacophonous holiday of Halloween, and their brand new EP. Twiga has kept themselves busy over the last couple of months, having just played a Steely Dan tribute concert at Shea Stadium and a show with Mal Blum & The Blums, Hiccup, and Sat. Night Duets at Sunnyvale. By releasing their new EP, Twiga shows that they’ve got no interest in slowing down for the winter. Head over to Gold Sounds this coming Saturday night to hear what they’re all about. Also, enjoy performances from Queens fuzz-pop trio The Front Doors and Vermont’s very own indie popper Blahvocado. Dress up to get down. – Will Sisskind

New Track: "100K" - Sun Hat

The trio of Sun Hat is set to release its debut album, Pet Shapes, on November 5. Its first single, “100K,” pulsates with a combination of percussion and warm, warping keys intermingling a psych-effected daydream, with a dose of reality smacking rock; the song floats between the heavy and the light. Sun Hat will be celebrating its release on that same evening at The Pharmacy with Gavin Riley Smoke MachineLomez Place of Worship, and Two Inch Astronaut.

Debut Smallhands LP Available for Streaming & Download

Somewhere between a disintegration of ambiance and driven post-rock, Fredericksburg, Virginia's Smallhands produce music that is as sonically dynamic as it is immersive. The group consists of Winston Givler, Kyle Guerra, and Austin O’Rourke, whose collective effort will be making its way to cassette via Tape Modulator as their debut album, How To Say Goodbye. The record is a ground-up, DIY effort, with the songs mixed and mastered by O’Rourke - and it is worth noting that he was the recipient of the 2015 Gold ASCAP Morton Young Composer Award. You can stream and download Smallhands' LP in its entirety below. - Josh Kelly
