NEW Invisible Hand outtake tape//Wild Nothing show tomorrow

June 10th, 2013 · 1 Comment · By


Local psych pop band Invisible Hand has just released a outtake/rarities tape, Squirrel Jail on Funny/Not Funny. It’s a sprawling collection of lo-fi studio jams, sweet little experimental bits (check out the keyboard loop on “Summer Home at Last”), and different versions of familiar favorites like “Eating Out.” As always, the band’s humor is quite evident–“I’m not homeless if I’m on your couch,” they sing in “Pigeons.” The tape is a charming listen, fascinating too in giving me the ability to hear a band I’ve seen play live countless times in a more relaxed, playful setting.

Listen to¬†Squirrel Jail here on Bandcamp, or buy one of a very limited run of 100 cassettes on the label’s website.

ALSO: Roanoke, VA dream pop group Wild Nothing return to Charlottesville with a show at the Southern tomorrow (Tuesday), hot on the heels of their successful Nocturne LP and also the Empty Estates EP which I haven’t listened to but I’m sure is nice as well. Twin Tigers is opening, who seem to be a psychedelic-leaning band from Athens, GA.

I’ll be seeing Danish punks (buzzbands? Do they count as buzzbands now?) Iceage and Lower at Strange Matter in Richmond, so there’s that too.
