Shaky Hands

Portland's The Shaky Hands will be visiting Mercury Lounge Saturday, November 8th (tix) with NYC new-wave/discopunkers Holy Hail as part of the band's second full US tour. If attending, look out for the Break The Spell EP, a tour-only "8 song vinyl only ep of live and rare stuff" as well as The Shaky Hands' newest full length, Lunglight, which was released September 9th on Kill Rock Stars. You can grab a track from that above and check out an older mp3-rich Shaky Hands post for older tunes.

Check out a video promo for Lunglight, starring bassist Mayhaw Hoons, below - as well as a music video for the single "We Are Young," whose washed-out, Polaroid-at-the-Pool-Party look is about two weeks late for summer.

Accompanying The Shaky Hands for many dates across the country will be The Acorn. The Acorn's atmospheric folk was most recently featured on last spring's Glory Hope Mountain and you may have caught them at one of their four NYC dates in May. All dates below....
