Neon Lights at Union Hall, Friday July 6 - Thrushes!
Oh, they'll be a lot more.
"The top of Friday night's Neon Lights bill features not one but two stellar bands traveling in from exotic lands. The shoegaze sweethearts known as Thrushes come to us from the faraway wilds of Baltimore. Their debut album, Sun Come Undone, has been circling on selective stereos from Brooklyn to Beijing since Spring, but in case you need a sampler...
Thrushes - "Heartbeats" (From Merry Swankster)
You may think that you don't have room in your actual blood box for another song called "Heartbeats," but it's not like you have a choice in the matter. When word leaked that Jesus and Mary Chain's Reid Brothers would be recording an album with their little sister, this is the sound of the collective daydream that followed. Idolator said that, "anyone who has fond memories of 4AD will be all over this." I do, and I am. I have faith that the assembled masses will quickly agree. There's a temptation to call them the night's sleeper pick, if they hadn't gotten a lot more of that sort of high-quality attention.
That aforementioned more:
- Because rarely, only rarely, the NME can be kind of cool, you can vote Thrushes as an "NME Breaking Band" by going here.
