Right around a month ago, I posted a track from Tall Heights called “River Wider” (check it here), and now we’ve got another new track from them called “Infrared”. And again….I gotta say, this one is even better! They just keep getting better!

Interview Magazine premiered the track yesterday —- and you HAVE to go check it out. Their debut major label album, Neptune, will be out August 19th via Sony Music Masterworks.

“A gritty two-and-a-half minutes of wobbly bass, wailing guitar, and front woman Kerry Alexander’s slinky vocals, it is a blast—and there is more like this to come.” FADER

“‘Shame’ goes down like a refreshing, kick-you-in-the-face-strong cocktail, most likely swilled after a booty call gone bust. Wash that man right out of your hair.”  SPIN

“Complete with the crunchy kick of slightly manic-sounding guitar and the pulse of some very punchy bass…” – Paste Magazine

“ …the love-struck optimism of “Psychic Reader” harkens back to some of Wilson’s preferred buoyant romanticism” – Stereogum

“… programmed to fire all neural pathways associated with carefree indie rock fun. But beware: These lyrics will bite.” NPR

Minneapolis-based Bad Bad Hats reveal their debut album Psychic Reader, streaming exclusively with Interview Magazine now until release on July 17 via Afternoon Records. Named as one of SPIN’s “Artists to Watch,” the indie rock trio emerges with a record that is both artistically honest and widely accessible.

Psychic Reader is comprised of experimental beats, growling guitars, and catchy pop melodies that are both dreamy and strikingly deep.  Bolstered by the touches of producer Brett Bullion (Poliça, Bon Iver), the band takes a refreshingly rebellious approach with lyrics that challenge gender conventions.

In celebration of the new record, Bad Bad Hats announced a hometown album release show in Minneapolis, August 14 at Icehouse.

Stream the album now over at Interview Magazine!
