Just when you thought Sargent House had gotten their dynamic duo fix with Hella, think again. Combining the technical skill of their Northern California counterparts, with the power rock riffs of Death From Above 1979, Toronto’s Indian Handcrafts delivers with unrelentingly gritty melodies, accompanied by the intertwined vocal deliveries of drummer/vocalist Brandyn James Aikins, and guitarist/vocalist Daniel Brandon Allen.
The duo first appeared back in spring of last year with their self-titled, eight-song debut; now, signed under Sargent House, the group is set to begin recording this March in Los Angeles with engineer Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Big Business, Red Sparowes). The album is expected to be released in late 2012.
Until then, Indian Handcrafts have plenty to offer: you can stream their self-titled debut on Bandcamp, watch the official video below and download a free MP3 of “Red Action” or, if you are fortunate enough to be residing in Ontario, catch these guys performing live.
