SOME STUFFS: HSY allow you to have “Tartar Mouth”

The band’s self-titled debut EP will be released two weeks from out, and when I say two weeks from now, I mean literally 14 days from now, as in September 17th from now. The EP is not called From Now, it is self-titled and in their case, the they is/are HSY and that means the EP is called HSY.

Now that we have that out of the way, Buzz Records are in charge of its release and you can listen to their raw and dirty garage grit with a song called “Tartar Mouth”, which fortunately lacks a scent. It does have a sound, so you can listen to it below. For more music, head to the band’s official Bandcamp page.

The Toronto band will be doing a number of shows in Canada in a few weeks (from now), but will make a stop in Brooklyn during that time. The road adventures will end with HSY appearing at the Hailfax Pop Explosion festival.

SOME STUFFS: They’re called HSY, and that’s good enough for me

HSY. This is pronounced “hussy”, a word that may not be used as much by today’s generation but one that still has a number of different connotations. Or maybe I’m wrong, maybe it is indeed used today and people are being bossy (or is that bsy) about it. In this case, HSY are from Toronto and like to punk things up with a bit of sludge to show how musically dirty they are. They were able to obtain director Chris Chami to shoot a video for “Milk Chug”, a song that will appear on the band’s forthcoming Buzz Records‘ self-titled EP, The video is lo-fi and almost looks as if it was sourced from bad convenience store surveillance footage, but it somehow matches. HSY will be released on September 17th.

To hear more, they have a small number of releases available for listening and purchasing purposes on their Bandcamp page.

If you’re in New York City next month, you can catch them at Death By Audio in Brooklyn on September 21st, playing with Odonis Odonis and Eraas.
