Watching: Tough Knuckles
A few weeks ago relative newcomers, Tough Knuckles snagged the opening spot before Girls and Real Estate at NYC's Bowery Ballroom. Not a shabby gig to pull for your debut, eh? Well it seems to only get better for Calvin Lecompte and crew from there with one album already out (Greek Jazz) and another slated on the way from Captured Tracks with production help thrown in from Ducktails' Matt Mondanile. Tough Kuckles fits in quite nicely with the the lo-fi ramble of Cap Tracks/Woodsist players about town and their boombox pop will likely have a good home amongst the fray and fizzle. Keep your eyes out for them in 2010.
