Hookworms

We've mentioned that UK band Hookworms, who we profiled back in April, are one of our "30 Artists Worth Seeing at CMJ." One of the places you can see them is at the free Friday BrooklynVegan day party (details soon we swear!). It's one of five appearances for the Leeds quintet:

Thursday 10/17 - Bowery Ballroom 9 PM
Friday 10/18 - BV day party (time TBA)
Friday 10/18 - Fader Fort 7:30 PM
Saturday 10/19 - Knitting Factory 2 PM
Saturday 10/19 Death by Audio - 11:30 PM

As I wrote before, Hookworms "practice a visceral blend of noise, drone, motorik rhythms and impassioned vocals that basically demands to be listened to at top volume" which will hopefully be the level they'll be playing at for their CMJ shows. The band's terrific debut album, Pearl Mystic, was released by Domino imprint Weird World in September. Maybe even better is the band's non-LP single "Radio Tokyo / On Returning." You can stream that single and a few LP tracks in this post. The band are currently finishing up their second full-length. Catch them this week if you can.
