Live video. Kind words. Alan represents The Longwalls at Outlaw Roadshow 2016 this past fall in NYC.

Well ain’t this a hum-dinger! Alan opens up with “Sargasso in Space” off The Longwalls‘ classic 2012 EP, Careers in Science; follows it up with a tease from the band’s forthcoming 6th release with (soon-to-be-blistering) “Red Shirts;” slows things down with “Rukia” from 2015’s Gold Standard; and then closes things out going way back to 2010’s “Playwrights” off the Dark Academy EP. Good on ya, Alan!!

All that and some very kind accompanying words from our pal Ryan’s Smashing Life! He writes:

One of the East Coast’s best sounds / Sneaky Good! – Alan and the band play dark pop songs influenced by cultural tides, historical figures and social ephemera and this set was no different. The Longwalls last two full-length albums, The Gold Standard and Kowloon are two sides of the same study of coins – demonstrating just how good they really are. This January, The Longwalls dropped a live album you need to hear (here!)

Kowloon rolls on…

A full-moon-sized thank you to everyone who trekked out in the cold Saturday for The LongwallsKowloon release show. Epic night. Much love. We won’t soon forget. Meanwhile, kind words on Kowloon continue to roll in. The Noise says the boys “live somewhere between a more rustic Velvet Underground and a less new-post-punk the National.” Aiding & Abetting says the “songs soar and crash with astonishing grace.” We say, thank you!

Twangville loves the Longwalls

Big thanks to Twangville for these kind words on Kowloon, the new Longwalls record out 12/4. Over at Twangville they often say the Longwalls are deserving of much wider audience. We couldn’t agree more. Help the cause and tell a friend, would ya? Merci.
