Here’s introducing the first Twin Ports party band since Bone Appetit that doesn’t waste time meandering through art-school noise or roots-rock self importance. LongHammer pretty much sticks to the best parts of juvenile rock and roll: eyeliner, hot riffs, loose chicks, tight pants, big anthems, pounding drums, spiked wristbands and more hot riffs. Seemingly too young to really care about anything more than rocking out, front man Nate Michaels’ Bon Scott-like vocals have put all the Twin Ports shoe-gazers and nature-boy fakers on official notice. The new deputy in town is joined by Matt Golke on guitar, Orion Jackson on bass and Jesse Lee Graphton on skins.
