Hop Along

New Music Video: "Hardcore Friends" - Lithuania

Directed by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Lithuania’s video for the title track off their forthcoming LP Hardcore Friends (which will available on August 14 via Lame-O Records on August 14) finds Eric Slick and Dominic Angelella oddly “hopping along” with a plant and ladder respectively, until they meet on a field and shake hands in a blood brothers union. The image is apropos given that Field Mouse’s Rachel Browne and Francis Quinlan (Hop Along) are featured on the song.

New Video: Tiny Desk Concerts - Hop Along

Hop Along strips things down a bit for NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts, which you can watch below. The intimate setting provided a stage for Frances Quinlan's personal lyrics and achy yet powerful vocals to stand in the forefront. Their set consisted of "Horseshoe Crabs" and "Well-dressed" from the band's latest LP Painted Shut, as well as "Sister Cities," which was first recorded for the group's Shaking Through episode.


Weekend Warrior, May 8 - 10

Hop Along’s lead singer/songwriter Frances Quinlan is not a fan of musical comparisons to her work. Rather, she, along with the rest of band - Mark Quinlan, Tyler Long, and Joe Reinhart, just usually don’t get them. That makes sense when you’re a group that is hard to narrow down into one genre. There’s punk there, but there’s emo, and folk, and even hardcore too. But what’s most memorable of all about Hop Along, as any fan could tell you, is Quinlan’s voice - a rasp of power and vulnerability. On their new album, Painted Shut, released earlier this week via Saddle Creek, she tells twisted tale after twisted tale with vocals that are raw, genuine and shatteringly beautiful. She has the strength to add depth to those sort of awkward encounters like running into an old friend while working at a restaurant. (Quinlan has worked as a server and house painter on and off between tours.) Hop Along has relayed a bit of nervousness about their latest creation with producer John Agnello, but Painted Shut is so pure that it’s sure to be loved by their growing fan base. They'll be joined this Saturday at Union Transfer by local pals Thin Lips, whom are currently on tour with them, and CliqueUnion Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 8pm, $14, All Ages (Photo by Ally Newbold) - Emily DiCicco
