Wheat at Home This Weekend

After a three year hiatus and a stab at the major leagues, Boston based outfit Wheat return with a new album this year. The cryptically titled Everday I Said A Prayer For Kathy And Made A One Inch Square is every bit beautiful as it can be noisy at times. More of a prettier Sonic Youth at times than My Bloddy Valetine will ever be, it's definitely one of those albums where multiple first listens are required through headphones; you'll definitely find yourself picking up new things with each well deserved listen. Being equally epic and grand moments a la The Soft Bulletin and being coated with the most saccharine shoegaze moments on Souvlaki, Kathy is a devastatingly beautiful record about love and loss and how one is to cope and move on from the past, but not without carrying that little reminder with you wherever you go.

To tide you over until the release of Kathy on May 22, the band will be playing a few shows around the northeast. You can also snatch up the five-song EP That's Exactly What I Wanted...Exactly That, featuring Kathy single "Little White Dove" and four non-album tracks.
