Sometimes you get that feeling. I got it when I blindly asked Gregory And The Hawk to take some digital photos while on their current tour and send them to me to put up here. They could have sent a bunch of crummy shots, but they didn’t. They delivered … big time.
Here’s the obligatory plug for GATH – go out and buy the new CD Moenie and Kitchi if you’re a fan of female-fronted indie/folk pop (I definitely am). It’s one of the better releases I’ve heard in 2008, female-fronted or not. While there are some moments of beautiful and simple acoustic rock, it’s hard to pigeonhole this band led by Meredith Godreau and featuring Mike McGuire. Godreau says her biggest influences are The Lemonheads, The Blake Babies, My Bloody Valentine and The Sundays. Over on Donewaiting, I said that while Godreau doesn’t site them, you can toss Lisa Loeb and Tanya Donelly into the influences list if you want a good idea what to expect.
Here’s a sampling of the photo tour diary. The rest are after the jump.
