Whirr and Wildhoney play the Hi-Tone this Thursday, along with locals Gryscl and Neev. Wildhoney released their debut album this January, and the entire record can be streamed below. Sleep Through It expands on two excellent 7-inches and one cassette EP, drawing influences from ‘60s girl groups, ‘80s post punk, indie pop, and shoegaze. Fans of Dolly Mixture, Shop Assistants or Cocteau Twins should take note.
Not a band to take a lot of time off, WIldhoney has already announced that a follow up EP will be released this summer on Top Shelf Records. Headlining the show is Whirr, a Bay Area shoegaze band that's been making noise since 2010. Whirr has worked with Tee Pee Records and Graveface Records, and toured with like-minded individuals Nothing. Check out the title track from Whirr's 2014 album Sway below, then get to the Hi-Tone by 9 p.m. on Thursday with $10 dollars in your hand.
