Hog-Eyed Man, Honeychild

It’s a double-release party for the early birds on Sunday, when Prince Avenue hotspot Hendershot’s hosts two local acts celebrating new records. You can find both albums filed under “H,” though each offers up a vastly distinct set of sounds: Honeychild’s excellent Surrender (see review) is a sentimental and synth-heavy collection of atmospheric new-wave jams, while Hog-Eyed Man’s captivating, self-titled set of Appalachian folk impresses with its attention to detail. Both bands aim to transport the listener back in time, though the difference is about a century or so. It’s wonderful to see such a diverse bill on the calendar—and on a Sunday, no less.
