Social Studies instore tonight at 7pm
Today's forecast: Sassy, infectious twee-pop in the shape of SF's Social Studies. This foursome will shower you with tracks from their new album Wind Up Wooden Heart which is receiving glowing reviews from Daytrotter, RCRD LBL, NME + more. It's not on vinyl yet (we're crossing our fingers) but come down and snag up their Weathered White 7".
Also, this is a pretty kick-ass review: "San Fran fruit-jugglers Social Studies make twee sound brawny. Who else does that? “Holler Boys,” layers background bleeps, twiddling guitar, soft percussion and radiant female vocals into a shape-shifter—there is no pure verse chorus verse, and each swell breaks in a new direction. Next, indie-pop croon-tune “Time Bandit” is another pretty surprise." - RCRD LBL
