Don’t Miss Hundred Waters and Races Tomorrow at Mercury Lounge

May 8th, 2012


Hundred Waters sprung up out of the University of Florida music scene and undoubtedly has an interesting sound tucked into the small Venn diagram overlap of folk and electronica. And while that might seem like an odd mix, it definitely doesn’t sound like one. The coed Gainesville, Fla., band (above, doing “Boreal” for offtheavenue.tv) put out its heady self-titled debut in February, and now they’re out on the road with the Van Nuys, Calif., outfit Races. That group, formerly known as Black Jesus, has a jammy, psyche-tinged album, Year of the Witch, due out this fall. But they’re not resting on their laurels. Instead Races (below, playing “Year of the Witch” and “Year of the Child”) are already working on their next disc. And you can see them with Hundred Waters tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge.
