The other night, I had one of those nights....the ones that I wish were every night! I went to see Unknown Mortal Orchestra - who I had been on the fence about. I knew if I saw them live I would totally get the whole picture behind the band, and I am happy to say that they were great, and yes, I am now a fan! The other thing that happened - something that almost never happens, but when it does it pretty much makes the night the best ever - the opening band was equally amazing!
Gauntlet Hair killed that opening slot - totally made it their bitch! It was awesome! Looks like they are based out of Denver at the moment - rather odd....not too much comes out of that part of the world recently, which makes them even cooler! I checked out their self titled album which was released this year - it's great. It has a cool drowny vocal vibe, like Echo & The Bunny Men with indie goodness fuzzy guitars with heavy bass out front - if you like Bear In Heaven you will digg Gauntlet Hair.
