Pocketknife/Adventures With Might Split 7" - Release at Holocene, February 29th

I was excited to discover that Pocketknife has a new release coming out - a split 7" with fellow Portland synth pop makers Adventures With Might on Vinyl Richie. The concept of the record is simple but clever - each band's side contains one original song and one cover of the other band. All songs contain sexy, danceable, synth-heavy pop. Pocketknife's original track, "Bats in the Belfry," skillfully combines creepy, ominous lyrics with frantic, catchy pop hooks. Adventures With Might's "Teen Machine" sounds like what would happen if 70's funk and 80's goth had the most awesome music baby possible. The bands are having a release show at Holocene on February 29th. Dancing will not be optional.
