HERMITS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MY BEST FRIENDS



here's a video of Big A little a at the perviously mentioned S. 5th show. it's very hard to capture the fervent energy and gripping beat of Aa (three and a half percusionists, two vocalists, keyboards, distortion. . . all mixed up like a tornado in your living room). I've never felt that any of the few recordings i've heard do them a bit of justice. . . so i guess this is my weak attempt to present a more complete picture of what they are capable of. keep in mind i shot it with a digital still camera and had to compress the crap out of it to fit it on to Vimeo. so "quality loss" is an understatement. but regardless i think it's pretty fun.

MP3:

xmas just keeps coming. and so we have rockers that probably aren't very close to any sort of hand-to-mouth living singing about being homeless. hmmm. but it's at least something that doesn't sound like every other xmas track out there. and the premise is unusual.

• The Black Halos - Homeless For Christmas


support starving rockers, buy music
