Hunting Club plan work on first album and offer up awesome single “Yours Truly”

hunting-clubMinneapolis rockers the Hunting Club have been busy as of late. While planning the recording of their first full length album, slatted to begin in late May with friend Jeff Halland, the band has still been playing in support of their debut EP. 

The album is an excellent romp through indie stylings with a mix of good modern rock elements as well. Tracks like the slower “Deep Sea Diver” are marked by deep mellotrons outlining the skeleton for the song and are coupled by a guitar that’s straight-forward and almost shoe-gazingly mesmerizing. 

But it’s the cut “Yours Truly” that stands out more than anything on the album. Starting with a minute of purely instrumentation, the track immediately reminded me of some of the Kings of Leon’s better material. The track takes a bit of a turn at the two minute mark, slowing down a bit and bringing in  a more percussion driven verse as opposed to the guitar driven intro. The vocals hit hard half way through too, as the singer belts out “I fell light years in your eyes, forgot my mind and now, I love you I love you I love you…” the entire track comes alive and is pulled together. Hunting Club really seem to find their sound on “Yours Truly,” a sound that feels familiar and yet surprisingly powerful at the same time. If their full length is anything in line with this single I can’t wait to hear it, at any rate though, these guys are looking to make waves, and have started off pretty successfully. 

MP3: Hunting Club – “Yours Truly”

They’ve got a few shows coming up as well if you found yourself loving that song. The first on April 24th at the Nomad World Pub playing alongside Man is Doomed and Invincible Kids. And if you can’t make that you can find them May 17th with Chooglin and Private Dancer at Art-a-Wheel.

Check out the MP3 and see what you think, and be on the lookout for more information as they roll out their first full length later this year. Enjoy!

P.O.S. performs “Savion Glover” for Yours Truly

Posted in Video with tags , , , , , on Tuesday, March 31, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I posted the first part of this video series earlier when Stef had performed the track “Goodbye” off of his new album Never Better. This second part here, has him performing the track “Savion Glover” with Plain Ole Bill and Mike Mictlan. Yet another great video from P.O.S. as he talks briefly in the beginning about the situation that he had when he was growing up as a kid. He tranisitions into the track real smooth with Mictlan as his hype man for the track.

Editor’s Note: Does anyone know where the hell I can get that hat that Mictlan is wearing?
