This Weeks Short Bursts ::

Locals Only: Hands and Knees and Get Help
We have found ourselves spending far too much time on Bandcamp lately. Our latest infatuation is Wholesome, the forthcoming album from Boston's garage pop darlings, Hands and Knees. The 13 track LP features several tracks the band's been playing in their set in recent months, including Throw Me From The Bridge of Flowers, and our current favorite, Sitting at the Piano Disappearing. Wholesome is a worthy follow up to last years superb Et Tu, Fluffy?, and find the local quartet delivering another album filled with concise and cathartic lo-fi pop nuggets. The album will get an official release on January 15th, but for now you stream the album in it's entirety at the a fore mentioned Hands and Knees Bandcamp site, or listen below.

Hands and Knees will play The 201 in Providence on December 3rd with The Invisible Hours.

The duo of The Beatings, Tony Skalicky and Mike Ingenthron of Strikes Again, otherwise known as Get Help will play an afternoon all ages show tomorrow at Cambridge's All Asia. According to the duo's site they have been recording new tracks for the follow up to 2008's The End of The New Century so let's hope album #2 isn't too far off. The show starts at 3PM, be there.

Get Help - Far Away Now
