2009 Looks Great Already

Cut Off Your Hands Stark Online

Fresh on the heels of an announcement from Bruce, a preview from Animal Collective, and an exclusive taste of Dent May, 2009 is already shaping up to be a banner year for music judging by January's schedule alone. And now we've got another release from a great bunch of Kiwis that should certainly get you jazzed. Keep your eyes peeled for a fantastic new band out of New Zealand called Cut Off Your Hands. They're releasing their debut LP You And I on January 20th via Frenchkiss, and judging by the single "Happy As Can Be" (which you can grab above), they could very well be a household name in the future. SPIN does a pretty good job at describing the album's sound: "Power-pop ooh-lahs, hip-rocking post-punk backbeats, and sleak guitar fingerings." Holy adjectives and hyphens, Batman! Anyway, get stoked.
