[MP3] Now Now – “Thread”

a hint of light in the dark but only enough to keep from giving up

♫ Now Now – Thread

  • Who: Cacie, Jess, & Brad.
  • What: Tough n’ tender indie pop, like Tegan & Sara, Death Cab for Cutie, Slow Club.
  • Where: Minneapolis, MN + Facebook / Amazon
  • When: 2nd LP Threads is out now.
  • Why: Don’t look now but the 3 people making the Joy Formidable sized guitar jam you are hearing are quite quiet and timid. They slipped silently on stage last week at the TBE SXSW shows and if it wasn’t for the wall of sound coming from their instruments you wouldn’t even know they were there. But enough about the great live set you missed, you can still grab their Chris Walla (from Death Cab) produced 2nd LP Threads and have your own pajama rock-out at home. Catch a review of their show here and an interview here.
