Fresh Track: Heypenny Debut 'Purple Street'; Full-Length Due Feb. 22

Posted By on Mon, Jan 24, 2011 at 4:30 PM

Tuesday? More like Tunesday! Oh wait ... It's not Tuesday. A long weekend has rendered my perception of what day it is all wonky. I digress. The point: Local robot-rockers Heypenny just debuted their tune "Purple Street" via Some Kind of Awesome. "Purple Street" is the first single from the forthcoming A Jillion Kicks, which is set to drop on Feb. 22 and was funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign. Heypenny will play an album-release show at Mercy Lounge on Feb. 26 with fellow locals Action!

Kicks was primarily recorded in "a barnstormer session, redoing what had taken two years to track in a matter of five days," and "Purple Street" features the characteristic excess we've all come to expect from the 'Penny: staccato, stream-of-consciousness vocals, diverse synth tones, general up-temponess and gleeful, carnival-esque delivery. And also a sick burn about some lady's (or dude's) silly hair. You can hear or download the track below or at Heypenny's Bandcamp page. Have a look at Heypenny's tour itinerary after the jizz-ump — more dates coming soon — and enjoy the jam.
