Grass Widow, the freewheeling San Francisco post-punk-pop-party trio who write freewheeling post-punk-puke-pop songs, are setting off on a mini-tour of these United States (I’m pointing at the East Coast on a map as I say this). Having released their Past Time full-length (TMT Review) on the lovely Kill Rock Stars label last year, they then went on to establish their own lovely label by the name of HLR (as in Hannah, Lillian, and Raven) and put out a 7-inch on it. This 7-inch had two covers on the B-side — “Time Keeps Time” by Neo Boys and “Mannequin” by Wire — and the A-side was a ditty called “Milo Minute” that sounded perfect for playing in front of a group of discerning gorillas, which they then went on to do.
The Milo Minute 7-inch is the first in their “Common Chord” series, with future 7-inches documenting their collaborations with Portland band Nature and the previously mentioned group of discerning Boston-based gorillas. However, all this information, while interesting, is completely beside the point, because what’s important is what’s going on NOW, and what’s going on NOW is a show tonight!! People of Poughkeepsie: find yourselves at Vassar College around 8 PM, enrolled or otherwise, because there you will find the healing sound of angular guitars and harmonized vocals beaming into your pleasure centers! Others on the East Coast: prepare for something similar near you! Prepare, I say!!!
