Heiruspecs new self-titled CD out this weekend - Release Party Saturday, December 13th at First Avenue

Heiruspecs video for "Get Up" was shot in early October, 2008 at Eclipse Records in St. Paul and was released in several weeks before the election. It's even cooler watching it in light of the outcome. If you haven't watched it yet, I implore you to do so and see why Heiruspecs are some of the coolest cats around.

On Saturday, December 13th the band will celebrate the release of their new self-titled album (their first full length studio album since 2004) at First Avenue with Mayda, Big Quarters and DJ Anton.

I just received my preview copy over the past weekend, and damn, I am am enjoying it.  Guests on the disc include Dessa of Doomtree, I. Self Devine, Maria Isa, Carnage and even Dan Wilson.

HowWasTheShow will feature "Lenses," the track featuring Maria Isa in its December podcast (go-live date Friday, December 12th.)

Andrea Swensson has more in her "Reporters Notebook" over at City Pages.
