Excellent Chapel Hill garage-blues duo has signed with the city’s Holidays For Quince Records to put out a new full-length in 2010.

The group rides late-night blues anthems with punk rock fury to create a sound that would be as apt for a barroom brawl as it would be for a amphetamine fueled late-night drive. In 2007 the group released a great LP entitled Blackwing Yalobusha on Haw River, N.C.-based imprint Yep Roc Records.

The band will play along with a host of other HFQ artists and unaffiliated local artists at the labels block party at the Nightlight May 15 to 17. The bill includes performances by Screaming Females, Bellafea, Caltrop, The Curtains of Night, In the Year of the Pig, Liza Kate, Mount Moriah, Wizzerdz of Rhyme, Embarrassing Fruits, and Max Indian.

Essentially, if you’ve been hiding under a rock for about the past year and have missed the great things that have been happening in Chapel Hill music, you’ll be able to get one hell of a refresher course in these three days. Should be a hell of a time.
