GTG112, Headacher by Extra Arms is out now! This excellent southeast Michigan quartet recently stole the show at GTG Fest XI and we’re extremely excited to have a band in our ranks that evokes “the cleaner, crunchier sound of alt-rock greats like Sugar and Superdrag” among its confident, concise, fuzzy powerpop sounds. Extra Arms is headed by Ryan Allen, a face and name that should be familiar to Michigan indie rock fans of the last decade-plus via his work with the great Thunderbirds Are Now! and his various solo activities, and Headacher is the debut release from the new, full-band iteration of Extra Arms. It’s always fun to have good company, which we certainly now all have with the addition of Headacher to our catalog. The CDs are available from us, with slabs of wax available from our Canadian pals at Get Party Records, digitally its everywhere, and the release party is tomorrow night at Cellarmen’s in Hazel Park!
