Born in Kansas but based out of the UK, Angela Penhaligon has been making music as Piney Gir since the early '00s. Her sixth album, Mr Hyde's Wild Ride, was released in the fall of 2015 and, like previous LPs, is full of expertly crafted indiepop that is winsome but never applies whimsy too heavily. She's got a way with unusual but instantly catchy melodies, and the album's full of clever production touches. Check out the videos for "Gold Rules" and "Keep it Together," plus stream the album via Spotify, below.

You can catch Piney Gir live as she's opening for onetime Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes' North American tour which just got underway and will be in NYC this week at Rockwood Music Hall on March 24 & 25. Tickets for both shows are still available.

All dates are listed below.
