Meg Duffy established herself as a force to be reckoned with on the Greater Nippertown music scene with dream-popsters Hand Habits, who released their EP Small Shifts as a split 10-inch with Peg on Jed Davis’ Exchatone label back in 2014. But more recently, she’s been touring the world as the guitarist with Kevin Morby’s band.
Now Duffy is gearing up to make her mark on the national indie scene. Hand Habits is slated to release their 13-track debut album, Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void), on Woodist Records on February 10.
Now you can listen to “All the While,” the first song released from the album. Stereogum says, “A wistful reverie of meandering guitar that ebbs and flows under Duffy’s unaffected vocals, it manages the neat trick of rocking out without ever breaking a sweat.” Pitchfork says, “Duffy’s placid voice and ambling guitar float confidently and contently as she paints images of sinking to the bottom of the sea or toppling into an abyss.” What do you say?
