Acquaintances released their debut LP; grab a track (MP3)
DOWNLOAD: Acquaintances - "Learn To Let It Go" (MP3)
As discussed, Acquaintances is the project of Jered Gummere (Bare Mutants, The Ponys), Justin Sinkovich (The Poison Arrows, Atombombpocketknife, Thumbnail), Patrick Morris (Don Caballero, The Poison Arrows), Stephen Schmidt (Thumbnail, Chino Horde), and Chris Wilson (Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Shake Ray Turbine). Today, they're celebrating the release of their self-titled debut via Epitonic/File 13 Records. You've already heard "Skin" from the LP, and we've got the premiere of the Sinkovich-lead "Learn To Let It Go." It opens with opposing, nervy guitar lines and then the drums later blast to the front of the mix as Sinkovich sneers the hook. Grab a download of the track at the top of this post and/or take a listen to it after the jump.
Acquaintances don't currently have any live performances scheduled, but they are planning on touring throughout the East Coast and Midwest soon. Stay tuned for more details on that front.
