Hearing Things Brooklyn, NY Brooklyn based Hearing Things plays instrumental music recalling an era where instrumental hits were all the rage. Through the compositional imagination of saxophonist Matt Bauder, their material channels early rock & roll, surf rock, jump blues and north african soul while retaining a modern surrealist approach. Bauder’s unique perspective comes partly form working with such free jazz luminaries as Anthony Braxton, Rob Mazurek and Taylor Ho Bynum as well as indy rock icons Arcade Fire and Iron & Wine. Vinnie Sperrazza (drums) and JP Schlegelmich (organ) are mainstays in the Brooklyn jazz scene and separate the band from the garden variety garage rock throwback. Hearing Things has become a regular in the rotation at the staple Brooklyn jazz haunt Barbes and has toured opening for Will Butler (of Arcade Fire) and Nick Waterhouse. They appear at Union Pool to celebrate the release of their second 7” single “Tortuga b/w Hotel Prison”. Their debut LP “Here’s Hearing Things” is due out March 15th 2019 on Yeggs Records.
