Hammer No More the Fingers

When: Thu., July 15, 5:40-7:30 p.m. 2010

Black Shark, the second LP by Durham trio Hammer No More the Fingers, doesn't have a label or a release date yet. But it does have songs—10 of them, and each number pushes the guitar, drums and bass trio forward in surprising ways. Whether it's the production nuance of "It's About Caring," the Built to Spill-brilliant guitar runs of "Fingernails," or the balance of forceful rhythmic stutter-and-stomp and acoustic textures on "Shark," Black Shark continually undermines the original claims that Hammer is or ever was, really, a simple band of indie rock revivalists. —Grayson Currin
