Buy your Kate Nash tickets tomorrow at noon. She plays Joe’s Pub on September 25th. Kate Nash is the next hot girl singer out of the UK. She epitomizes anti-folk with her lazy strums on the guitar and lyrics that look dumb on paper but actually sound earnest on record. However, the twist is that she also sings behind a few well-produced beats that flip the whole folk-singer thing on its head.
herman_dune.jpgGo see Herman Düne at Union Hall Thursday. These guys are awesome and should not be overlooked. They are kind of similar to Jens Lekman since they have a bunch of scattered gems on various releases that could combine them in to a fantastic compilation or re-release to give them the bump into the spotlight they deserve. If only they were all EPs.
