LADYHAWK To Embark On U.S. Tour In Support Of Acclaimed “Shots”; Free MP3 Of “S.T.H.D”

LADYHAWK have just released an album called “Shots” that Carrie Brownstein of NPR (and of Sleater-Kinney fame) listens to every day (see March 6 entry here). MOJO magazine gives the same album 4 stars and says that Ladyhawk recalls “Dinosaur Jr.’s drive as adroitly as some of Neil Young’s darker notions.” And their live show is renowned. The Vancouver band is coming off a sold-out romp through Canada with Jagjaguwar label-mates and good brahs (and sah) BLACK MOUNTAIN. And the United States is next up, where they are touring with Saddle Creek recording artists NEVA DINOVA. (See tour-dates below.)

Also, Ladyhawk are looking to make some friends along the way.

If you’re still on the fence, and you’re not prejudiced against hairy men (see: the opening page of www.jagjaguwar.com), then you should check out (and share) the following MP3, of a song called “S.T.H.D”: get song here

“S.T.H.D.” encompasses all that is Ladyhawk (urban lament, fist pumping rock chorus, tasty guitar solo), wrapped up in a two minute nugget of energy, sweat, melody and rhythm.

Here is some additional critical praise for people who don’t feel like thinking for themselves:

UNCUT Magazine — “To say Ladyhawk offer a pretty straightforward rock trip makes them sound unadventurous, [and] also doesn’t really do justice to the sheer head-nodding, play-loud-and-prosper enjoyment [Shots] offers.”

EXCLAIM — “Offering a darker, more mature version of their earlier work, “Shots” is the record Ladyhawk have always intended to make.”
