2 New Releases for 2020

There’s another big year ahead for Handstand! We’ve got 2 more exciting vinyl releases in the pipeline that are polar opposites on the sonic spectrum.

KISSED BY AN ANIMAL – Self Titled LP
Fuzzy lo-fi pop and 8th-wave slacker psych from Brooklyn. Dima told me he wanted the band to sound like “an 80s punk band channeled through a 90s indie band”, which is pretty accurate. You can listen to the album on Bandcamp and/or buy the cassette version in the shop!

LMI – Excess Subconscious LP
Pennsylvania three-piece that have been playing for over 10 years. Drive Like Jehu mixed with Mastodon? Lots of heavy guitar riffs, sick bass fills, and spooky weird tempo changes. LMI have a bunch of material on Bandcamp and you can purchase their most recent CD release “IV”.
