Bar Italia takes Us To A House Party in “my little tony” (Show Tonight!)
bar italia released not only their excellent Matador debut this year, but also managed to follow up with a second album before the year comes to an end here. While the earlier Tracey Denim was my favorite, the fall followup The Twits registers a lot of great songs. There’s a little more fuzz in this album than the earlier one which is clear in the single “my little tony”. There’s a very 90s fuzzy UK (they’re from London) swagger which brings to mind a lot of the shoegaze heroes like Slowdive as well as some Charlatans swagger. I’m almost certain this is their first time in Minnesota here so catch this while they’re still playing small clubs.
bar italia headlines the Turf Club tonight with local opener Ava Levy. More information here.
