Download Live Gauntlet Hair Tracks from Insound

When Gauntlet Hair was back in NYC in October, winning the CMJ Music Marathon, they stopped by a recording studio to participate in an event sponsored by Fred Perry. They played two songs – “Mop It Up” and “Shout In Tongues.” Remember that guy who became internet famous for doing outrageously-priced artisanal pencil sharpening? He’s a comedian named David Rees, and he interviewed the bands for funsies.

Gauntlet Hair’s session and interview (as well as many more bands who were there that day) are available via a free download over at Insound.

Watch Gauntlet Hair’s New Video for “Keep Time”


We have a brand new music video for Gauntlet Hair’s “Keep Time” that premiered today at SPIN.com. Directed and produced by Bernardo Pantoja and Skyler Stevenson for Wooden Lens, the video features mirror-eyed ghouls that come to live at night. The ghouls are hunted by another entity and prowl the streets (shot in SE industrial-sector Portland). The goal for Wooden Lens was to “echo the beautiful texture and disturbing tone” of the song, and color me disturbed – this video is so scary and cool!

Gauntlet Hair was a huge critical highlight of CMJ 2011, praised by PopMatters, Pretty Much Amazing, Brooklyn Vegan, and Stereogum. After the jump, watch two live videos of Gauntlet Hair performing at The Fader Fort.
