America Hearts Plots Digital Singles Series
Local lo-fi popsters America Hearts have a couple of vinyl releases to their name. But while their latest project invokes one of the more cherished traditions of indie pop—the subscription singles club—it's friendly to the vinyl-averse. Beginning this month, the Jess Matthews-led quartet will release three digital EPs of mostly new jams. The first EP, Angsty (tagline: "Songs about being the only one in the room in a 311 shirt"), is available April 23. Then comes Messy on May 24 and Country on June 27.
The band (full disclosure: WCP contributor Justin Moyer is a member) performs at the Black Cat on all three release dates. Any lingering questions about the singles series are answered in this video, featuring adorable narration from guitarist Kristina Buddenhagen's niece.
