Song O’ the Week: Sergio Sericolo’s “Drunk Song”

Friday, March 28th, 2014

Sergio Sericolo – formerly of the ’80s alt-rock power trio Even the Odd – has become one of Nippertown’s premier visual artists since then. But he’s returning to music and releasing his debut solo album, “Something to Prove I Was Here.” He’ll be performing songs from the album at 8pm on Saturday (March 29), when he shares the stage with Blue Factory at McGeary’s Pub in Albany.

Song o’ the Week: Hand Habits’ “Be Yr Man”

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

Hmmm, not too small…
And not too big…
Ah yes, it’s that perfect 10-inch piece of vinyl, just right for the swirling dream-pop of Meg Duffy’s Hand Habits.

And Hand Habits’ new 10-incher could be in your hot little hands right now… at least digitally speaking. It’s a split EP with Peg, the new side-project band from Avi Buffalo drummer Sheridan Riley. Peg’s four-song side of the disc is titled Living With Abbreviation, while Hand Habits’ two-song side – featuring “Be Yr Man” and “Bloom” – is dubbed Small Shifts. (And that begs the question – If it’s only two songs, is it really an EP? Or just a single with both songs on the same side of the disc?)

Either way, the package is being released today (Tuesday, February 25) by the fine folks at Eschatone Records as a digital download (on itunes and other download sites), as well as in a vinyl limited edition of just 125 copies featuring two front covers, each signed by its respective artist, and includes a sheet of liner notes. In addition, vinyl purchase also includes a download of both the Peg and Hand Habits audio.

And you can check out Hand Habits live at Skidmore College’s Falstaff’s in Saratoga Springs at 9:30pm on Friday (February 28) with Soft Powers (FREE), as well as at 8pm on Saturday night (March 1) at Albany’s Hollow Bar + Kitchen with Northern Faces and MaryLeigh Roohan ($10).
