Well ain’t this a hum-dinger! Alan opens up with “Sargasso in Space” off
The Longwalls‘ classic 2012 EP, ; 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 Careers in Science and then closes things out going way back to 2010’s “Playwrights” off the Gold Standard; EP. Good on ya, Alan!! Dark Academy
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!) 20 October 2016
The Longwalls‘ own Alan Wuorinen is playing a solo acoustic set at the 2016 edition of Outlaw Roadshow NYC. He goes on at 8:30 at the Bowery Electric! Thanks to Ryan Spaulding for having Alan down, and apologies the rest of the band can’t make it this time around!
Check out Rukia, by Alan. In his kitchen.
