Hot Hands Hot Hands

Hot Hands is a indie-noise-pop-garage duo originally based in Florida with Jeffrey Howard on guitar and "Machine Gun" Kristin Howard on drums. After a lengthy tour without finding a new home anywhere they call themselves "Lost In America". The new album 'Blood Stereo' will be coming out late August/September 2014.

NEWS OF NOTE:

We just started a new Tumblr blog called Lost In America, named after one of our favorite movies, which we write about our more day to day adventures as we travel across the country.

We still have our "Jeffrey and Kristin Watching Bands" blog, as the name suggests, a rather large collection of photos of us watching bands play. It's what we do.

LIVE REVIEW: "Garage rock duo Hot Hands infused the evening with a lighter energy, playing a fast-and-loose style that could be succinctly described as The Hives with occasional noise-rock ornamentation. Guitarist Jeff Howard made his guitar sound like everything from bubbling water to a helicopter, but all of this sonic chicanery was kept at the margins of the band’s largely straightforward, aggressively fun tunes.
