White Gallery are a duo from Brooklyn, they are post punk, which I take to mean they use stripped down everything, simple bass + vocal – bullshit + some distortion pedals. I think that’s what that term means, otherwise my mind conjures up images of guys and gals who gave up on the punk dream, washed out their hair, and now spend their time in safe neighborhoods, delivering passionate speeches about what a waste of time all of those silly clothes and drugs were. Fuck those people. The ones I just imagined in some sort of straw people village to blow over. The White Gallery post punk is hardly post anything, it’s good rhythms, vocals and great video that makes me long for weather that’s good in a leather jacket as I’m a poser who does not wear a leather jacket in the summer.
Live these guys are, according to their website, “…a five piece band live and we shred. Fuck”, they’ve been playing a few shows around town (Cakeshop, The Flat), so certainly others will be coming up, go friend them on your friend machine, follow up, connect.
