DOWNLOAD: Averkiou - Present Tense (MP3)
IIf you read this week's, er, This Week in Indie you saw that Gainsville, Florida's Averkiou will be in town this weekend with fellow Floridians Guy Harvey for two shows: tonight (1/27) at Cake Shop and tomorrow (1/28) at Death by Audio.
Averkiou have a new EP, The New Imperative, coming out February 10 on Sound Study Recordings and we've got the premiere the track "Present Tense," which you can download at the top of this post. (You can also stream it below.) Averkiou wrap their songs in a warm sweater of distorted, tremeloed guitar and vocal harmonies and those who are fond of early '90 Yo La Tengo, and Teenage Fanclub will likely dig this.
