ARMS is the former side-project, now main gig of Harlem Shakes guitarist, Todd Goldstein and the band (which also includes previously spotlighted Matty Fasano) is preparing to release their debut full-length in November. Our first taste of the new album is a track called “Fleeced”, which as You Ain’t No Picasso points out has a very Local Natives feel with it’s layered vocals, jagged guitar riffs and frenzied drumming. The track promises great things for new album Summer Skills, which just moved way up my list of anticipated albums for the rest of the year. Check it out below.
Rawkblog has video of ARMS covering “Carry Me Ohio”, one of my favorite Sun Kil Moon songs.
