Chapel Hill’s North Elementary releases new album

In music, music video on April 23, 2009 at 7:58 pm

Indie rock group North Elementary dropped Not for Everyone Just for You this past week and some southeast shows to back it up. Last time I saw North Elementary they made fun of the crowd as most of them turned a deaf ear. Then I picked up the 7″ which is a good time of elongated jam songs. Not For Everyone… features stand out tracks in “Tumbleweed Stars” and “Medical Sunset” and they’ve found a place somewhere between the Foo Fighters, Nada Surf and The Flaming Lips, with soft choruses and nice melodic distortion (is that possible?) for filling. Definitely worth checking out from Eskimo Kiss. Video of new album track “Golden Tigers” also below.

What the HNMTF!-New album out by Hammer No More The Fingers

In Uncategorized on April 10, 2009 at 2:22 am

Everyone’s fav. trio Hammer No More The Fingers is hitting up the east coast of the NC in support of their new release, Looking for Bruce just released on Church Key Records. If you’ve never caught a HNMTF show, you will not believe the transformation of Duncan, Joe and Jeff from the mild-mannered nice guys they are into the total thrashers once on the stage. Their uproarious new 90s-esque alt-math-rock totally blows the mind of those minds previously unblown. Upcoming dates (includ show with Superchunk) are below and a live vid is after the jump:
