Artist / Band: GET HIM EAT HIM
Song (MP3): 2X2
Album: Arms Down
File Under: Indie / Powerpop / New Wave
Label: Absolutely Kosher Records

Info: Formed in February of 2004, Get Him Eat Him consists of five young men with passable small motor skills playing big, confusing music. Paroxysm-laden pop that balances gravity and gratuitousness, the music of Get Him Eat Him has been described as "a hybrid of The Wrens, Enon, and Weezer's pop sensibility." In July of 2004, Get Him Eat Him signed to Absolutely Kosher Records, home of The Wrens, Frog Eyes, and Sunset Rubdown (Spencer from Wolf Parade). Get Him Eat Him has played shows with Broken Social Scene, The Wrens, The Arcade Fire, The Constantines, Beirut, Black Dice, Xiu Xiu, and The Walkmen. The band released their debut album, recorded at John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone Studios by Jay Pellicci (Deerhoof, Erase Errata), July 26, 2005 on Absolutely Kosher. Three tour EPs followed in late 2005 and early 2006. On June 5th, Get Him Eat Him will release their second full-length Arms Down, co-produced by former Dismemberment Plan guitarist Jason Caddell.
