Halfsour – Tuesday Night Live (Jigsaw)

RELEASE DATE: January 29th, 2016

As the legend goes, halfsour started out as a Guided By Voices cover band. Well, I can sort of hear it when I squint my ears, but this coed trio from Boston actually reminds me a lot of the harder-edged indiepop bands of the late ’90s/early ’00s, specifically New Grenada (of whom they are a dead-ringer, actually) and Wolfie (and its many off-shoots, such as the Like Young and National Splits). Their songs are generally short and punchy – only a few times do they pass the three-minute mark, blasting you with catchy guitar melodies and bratty¬† vocals. Following up a short-run demo tape and a split 12″ EP with Reports on Ride The Snake Records, this is Halfsour’s debut album, and it certainly shows a lot of promise – definitely a band to watch out for! It’s music to have bottle rocket wars to, to throw a party in a back garden shed, to have a demolition bicycle derby, to throw rocks at trains to, to try to throw keys up into a tree to get stuck to, music that just calls out for fun and abandon. Stop what you are doing, put this on and get lost in fun.
