Jack of Heart hail from the Southern France city of Perpignan which is also home to The Liminanas. Both fall into the "garage" category but Jack of Heart take a more American view, singing mostly in English with a tinny, wild bubblegum sound not too far from Nobunny. You can check out a video and a few streaming tracks below.
The band are currently on tour of North America that hits NYC later this week for two shows: Death by Audio on Thursday (1/30) with 999999999 and The Doozies, and then Cake Shop on Friday (1/31) with Marvin Berry & the New Sound, The Weird Fantasy Band and The Split (That's "Split" not "Spits"). All tour dates are listed below...
Brooklyn's Forgetters (the current project of Blake Schwarzenbach, who previously fronted Jawbreaker and Jets to Brazil, and Kevin Mahon, formerly of Against Me!) are set to release their new self titled album on November 13 via their own Too Small To Fail label. The album was produced by J. Robbins (of Jawbox, Government Issue, Office of Future Plans, etc), who also worked on all three Jets to Brazil albums and Jawbreaker's Dear You. You can stream some clips and pre-order the album HERE. The cover art and tracklist is below.
They haven't announced a full tour in support of the album yet, but they'll play a local show just before its release at Death by Audio on November 9 with Radical Dads (ex-Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), Tiny Tusks, and The Weird Fantasy Band. No advance tickets for this show.
The cover art for the new album and a video of Forgetters at Death by Audio in 2010 are below.
