Artist Spotlight: Lil Huffy

Harrisonburg’s Lil Huffy are getting in on that grand tradition of physical music with the release of their recent 6-track, Old Volvo, on tape. Volvo, which I’ve written about here before, is an ambitious and rewarding lo-fi noise-pop kind of exercise, but startlingly sober when compared to the overwrought, overthought, overly breathy shoegaze redux that’s in vogue at the moment. The band have a knack for layering, and their songwriting hints at serious potential for a kinetic live show. And fancy that, we're in luck!

In support of the tape, which will drop August 21st on Quiet Year Records, the band are taking a small tour up the Washington-New York megalopolis with stops in beautiful Charlottesville VA, Philly, and northern Jersey. On the way back, they’ll hit Richmond, VA for a show with some of the town's best and brightest groups.
