Past song of the week / July 2011

This Hisses

From the album Surf Noir

Featured track, available from July 21 to July 28

This Hisses is roaring into the Pyramid with a brand new album on vinyl and CD. The rock trio unleashes its debut on Transistor 66, Surf Noir, which was produced by Royal Canoe's Matt Peters at Private Ear. The band has been busy in recent months, including a trip to Toronto for a coveted showcase at North by Northeast. Uptown dubbed them "One to Watch" back in February and the band can now be found in the latest issues of Stylus Magazine, Metro, and Uptown. After the release party, they'll head to Gimli for the Icelandic Festival on July 30 and then tour east for dates in Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and beyond. We've got This Hisses' song "Swagger" for you as this week's featured download. Get the track and catch the album release on July 23 with opening sets by The Lonely Vulcans and The Girth.
