-Pusha T

You may have noticed that our print publication recently went bi-weekly. Did you know bi-weekly means both occurring twice a week and occurring every other week? For real, look it up. We mean the latter. Anyway, fear not, we'll still be posting Soundcheck online every week, same as before.

The “sludge-pop” duo hails from New York and delicately rips the heads off of its listeners with playful, honest lyrics and a messy, yet earnest intensity. Check out I Swear I’m Good At This or their Tiny Desk Concert and then don’t miss them at Hoosier Dome when they play with equally lovely locals, Dana Skully and The Tiger Sharks.
