We’ve been enjoying the debut record by Hey Hey My My. Their unfortunate name (which references Young’s “Into the Black” of course) reminds us of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Junior Senior’s Hey Hey My My Yo Yo, but don’t let that get in the way. Their music is fantastic. We’d deem their breezy, alt-country melodies as Americana if they didn’t happen to be from France. Thanks to our friends at JELLYNYC, Hey Hey My My are doing a few New York shows in coming days. You can catch them at Mercury on 3/5 (opening for Lightspeed Champion), at Southpaw on 3/7 (playing with The Epochs and The Subjects), and then at Soundfix on 3/8. They’re certain to be getting lots of press in the near future. You can check out some tracks on their myspace page, myspace.com/heyheymymyband, or watch a couple of their videos after the jump.
Our guess is that the top one won’t be showing on Brooklyn Vegan anytime soon.
