NYC’s Hymns on tour now

I first heard of Hymns when guitarist Jason Roberts played with Ben Kweller’s band and passed me their CD after the show. I caught them playing with The Lemonheads & VietNam a few months later, and have really enjoyed their album. See previous little interview dealie here.

They’ve announced a slew of tour dates starting this Friday in Texas. Check ‘em out if you can, they put on a good live show.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
