Animal Tropical/John Hancock In-Store Tuesday + FREE EP!

It’s the first week of January and we’re already right on track with some great in-store events coming up!

This Tuesday, come to Sweat for live performances by ANIMAL TROPICAL + JOHN HANCOCK of ANR!

Animal Tropical are formerly the Down Home Southernaires and formerly Pygmy before that.  These sharply dressed and talented gentlemen’s most recent EP “Doom Years” is a store favorite and in our opinion one of the best releases this year, local or otherwise.  Read more below…  We’ve got the disc at Sweat for a fiver, but the band were generous enough to offer it for FREE through the Sweat site this week!  Click the link to download the excellent 6-track EP in high quality MP3s:

Download: Animal Tropical “Doom Years” EP

John Hancock is the voice, the guitar, sometimes the drums and the songwriting core of ANR.  His ever-expending solo material runs the gamut from experimental world pop beats to fuzzy American punk rock to soulful Prince-worthy ballads.  We don’t know precisely what he’ll play Tuesday, but we know it’ll be good.

No cover, starts at 8.30pm at Sweat – see you there!
