AMERICA HEARTS SINGLES CLUB
Remember the singles club? Back when you loved a record label so much that you paid for a year's worth of seven-inches in advance?
America Hearts does.
In lieu of unwieldy, expensive vinyl that parents who don't have record players can't listen to, the Beach Boys/Magnetic Fields-inspired DC quartet fronted by Jess Matthews are releasing three digital mini-EPs at Black Cat shows in April, May, and June! Showgoers will receive a download at the door, getting free access to the band's fresh take on lo-fi, country-tinged pop – and honoring an indie-rock tradition without worrying whether something is supposed to be played at 33 or 45 r.p.m.
So, What's in America Hearts's Singles Club? Short songs in short collections with one word names.
At June's show, pick up Country – Songs about hitting the road with a dog and a bottle of whiskey
