Memphis band Sweet Knives formed from the ashes of early-'00s group Lost Sounds, including guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Alicja Trout, drummer Rich Crook and guitarist John Garland. (The fourth Lost Sound member was Jay Reatard, who died in 2010.) They stay pretty true to those sounds, making dark, garagey new wave. You can check out a few songs below.

Sweet Knives will be releasing a new album via Bigneck Records later this year and will be on tour in August, including a show at Brooklyn's Union Pool on 8/8 with Big Eyes. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon. All tour dates are listed below.
