(Intimate Stranger - Chile by way of London by way of Chile again)

A double bill of sorts tonight. First up is a band who are scheduled to tour the U.S. sometime this year. Intimate Stranger are a Chilean band who met up and formed in London in 2006 and then went back to Chile and started gigging around and getting their MySpace page happening. Fronted by English/Croatian singer/bass player Tessie Stranger, they've been getting a good word of mouth going. This track "In The Black" is one of their earlier tracks from 2007. Check them out if they hit your town. Meanwhile, check out their website and see what's being said about them.


(In Veins - just a bunch of mind-melting kids from Bordeaux)

Our bonus band, In Veins, comes from Bordeaux and freely admit to being a psych/shoegaze outfit. Like Intimate Stranger, they've been around since about 2006 and are getting a steadily increasing following based on good word of mouth and a lot of gigging around Europe(and a new ep coming out in February). This track, a short one is just called "Intro" - no need to drag your French/English dictionary out for a translation, it's an instrumental. But a heavy one.

Enjoy the Hump Day tunes!
