Gypsyblood Tour Out West Starts Tonight 10/23 In Oklahoma!
Hanus: Spotlight on Gypsyblood
So as some of you might know, Hanus started January 1st, 2012. In our origins we set a few ground rules. First and foremost, we had the understanding that we wanted to keep content as fresh as possible. The parameters of that agreement were simple. Nothing would be hosted on here that was older than 2 months of the intended post date. Even then, we usually stick to posting albums or reviews of the album if we’re going to take that long. It’s all about providing you with good music and keep you in the loop of what’s going down with your favorite record labels. But see….there lies the issue. What could we do if we found something so dope, so spectacular that we had to share it? This is how I felt the first two months when we started up. I was so torn due to us not being able to show you how great 2011 was for music. (Granted, we did do the best of 2011 post) Gypsyblood’s Cold In The Guestway was right up there with some of my favorite albums of the year and I was so sad I couldn’t bring it to you. But life threw my ass a bone yesterday and they got around to dropping their video installment for “Endless Summer”, which is fucking awesome.
The Summer of 2011 was riddled with good music and this was definitely one of my favorite albums. Technically, since the video was dropped this month the content is still super fresh and I’m able to provide you with it. Please, go to their bandcamp page and show these dudes some love. Their a Chicago bred two piece (Adam James and Kyle Victor) signed to Sargent House and their obviously rad as fuck. I would say I had a treat for you and would tell you that they’re bringing some tuneage to Atlanta, but not on this tour. Sad too, since they’re heading to Nashville. Either way, check out their album below and be prepared for more content from these guys. As you can see: any opportunity I get to fulfill your musical fantasies I will gladly take as long as it meets our stupid ass fucking rules. Enjoy!

Verbicide Reports from SXSW on Gypsyblood & Marriages
Then it was to the Bat Bar for Gypsyblood. When you listen to their records, you hear lots of softer single-note guitar riffs with complex time signatures and tempo changes in their rhythm section, as well as tricky vocal melodies — but when you hear Gypsyblood live, they rip your face off and chop you up into a million little pieces. and you can hardly recognize the songs, even when you know every word. Their stage presence is filled with manic energy. Gypsyblood’s sound is unique to them, mixing chaotic post-punk rhythms with a ferocious and borderline psychotic energy.
The next band up at the Bat Bar was Marriages from Los Angeles. This experimental trio filled the room with rhythmic guitar tapping, droning bass, and a tight drum section. The drum and bass filled up enough space that could have been enough to listen to on their own. The guitars plunged their sound into oceans of feedback noise bliss that sounded like a slightly poppy version of Pelican. Their female singer added the perfect airy vocals soft touch to their songs in between finger tapping on her guitar.

Birp Finds Gypsyblood - The El Cid Interview
Don’t Trust Your GPS In The Southern Appalachian Mountains: an Interview with Gypsyblood - By Ryan Donar
Waiting outside of El Cid II; an out-of-place Mexican restaurant in the heart of Logan Square beside a comic book store that I promised myself not to go into. It’s about 6:50 p.m. when I look at the clock on my phone (early to a 7:00 p.m. meeting time of course, but only to make sure I got the right rendezvous point). I’m asked by two small, very young teenagers in backpacks and zipped up matching hoodies for a cigarette as I take a drag off of the last pre-rolled bugler I had in my breast pocket. “Are these kids for real? Maybe they are older than I think,” I say to myself as they hold out their hands as if they were expecting a snack. I say, “nah, this is the only one I have.” They put their hands down to their sides and kindly said, “fuck you,” then strutted away on their scooters. Confused and misplaced I hear a door open behind me and some male voices asking if and when a certain friend (Kyle) would arrive. Ignoring the conversation and keeping to my nosey self inspecting the nearby cops across the street at the train station I hear, “Ryan? Are you Ryan?” I turn around and am face-to-face with Chicago’s very own pop-garde masterminds, Gypsyblood.
The El Cid hostess leads Adam, Ryan, Chris and I upstairs where we thought would be a little less noisier in order to conduct the interview properly but instead arrive in a bar area with people chatting on both sides of our table and a mariachi band playing overhead in the speakers. The waitress brings out chips and Ryan White (bassist of Gypsyblood) discreetly whistles, or so he thought, as the waitress takes our drink orders. Margaritas and rice water.
Ryan Donar: Who are you guys and where are you guys from?
Adam James: We are Gypsyblood from Chicago, Illinois. Actually right next door to El Cid is where we practice, that’s also where we recorded half the album.
