Oh yes kiddies. We’re headed back to Union Hall to co-headline a show. We’re playing with Daughn Gibson (White Denim), who’s been generating a ton of buzz lately. This will be his first NYC show. Get your tickets here.
Lightouts & Daughn Gibson
Union Hall – 702 Union Street, Park Slope
Friday 5/11/12 9PM
“Lookin’ Back on ’99,” the new track from Daughn Gibson’s forthcoming debut, All Hell, is a spooky, atmospheric slice of electronically enhanced backwoods creepiness. Surrounded by echoed electric guitar, sinister rhythm patterns, and cutting synth, Gibson – former drummer for Pennsylvania stoner-metal outfit Pearls & Brass – unfurls an unsettling, elliptical tale in a gritty baritone. It’s compelling stuff, a modern update on the lonesome country noir of Lee Hazelwood. All Hell is due out in mid-March onWhite Denim, the label run by Pissed Jeans frontman Matt Korvette.” – Spin.com
“Gowanus duo Lightouts resurrect the melancholy chug and darkly sexy swagger of bands like The Cure, Girls Against Boys, JAMC and Afghan Whigs and impolitely jam it into the drum machine crunch of contemporary locals like Sleigh Bells, Year Of The Tiger and the Death Set. Their latest digital EP, The Eloise Suite, is their third one released this year; all of them sport gorgeous cover art and at least one telling cover (the Stone Roses, the La’s, David Bowie). “The Eloise Suite” is a three-minute 120 Minutesjammer owing to some Berlin-era Bowie chime-rock-and it now comes with a music video that can be best described as “Kubrick’s ‘Addicted To Love.'” – Christopher Weingarten, Village Voice
