THE DISTRICTS – HEY JO [Single] // Fat Possum

From promoter: “It’s been two years since The Districts released Popular Manipulations, and their new single “Hey Jo” is the first single from the upcoming album You Know I’m Not Going Anywhere. The founding members – vocalist/guitarist Rob Grote, bassist Connor Jacobus, and drummer Braden Lawrence – have known each other since attending grade school together in the Pennsylvania town of Lititz. After deciding to form a band in high school, they gigged hard in the tri-state area, releasing a slew of promising material (including the rootsy 2012 debut, Telephone) before catching the eye of venerable indie label Fat Possum.  2015’s A Flourish and a Spoil found the band refining their embryonic sound with veteran producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Kurt Vile)—and looking back on that release, there are glimmers of Popular Manipulations in chrysalis form to be found on it, hints of the fence-swinging anthemic sound they’d soon make wholly their own.” Play!!
