Centaur Hearts

Tuesday, January 29

Centaur Hearts are a mystery wrapped in an enigma. They are either so new or so elusive that they seem to exist solely on MySpace. I haven’t found them in any other club listings, so I’m guessing this is one of their first shows, if not their first. Their lone photo is of a guy in an eagle mask. The band’s “general” section only lets you know that the band members are Nick, Barry, and Mike and that they “sound like awesome”; they also claim to be “unfuckwithable” and give you lots of info about centaurs (“These Man-Horse beasts lived in Thessaly, fed on meat and were given to riotous revelries.” Mmm, OK). But a sample of their single posted track, a raging instrumental called “Harpies and Mystics,” is pretty freakin’ sweet. If you are only going to let 59 seconds represent you to the world, you kids have chosen the correct 59 seconds. With Oh Man! and Rad Touch. MA’CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR

Listen to a sample of Centaur Hearts' "Harpies and Mystics."
