Jam of the Day – Tony Castles at the Pool Party

Yesterday, (The) Tony Castles released the video for their first single, “Black Girls in Dresses,” from the band’s forthcoming No Service EP, out September 21 on Famous Class Records. The video was directed by Jordan Fish (who also directed Das Racist’s “Rainbow in the Dark” video), and the EP was produced by Jake Aron (Jamie Lidell, Yeasayer, Chairlift).

We are really digging their sound and also wondering what went down with that watermelon Paul walks into the party with. In keeping with the “pool party” theme of the video, the band is throwing a record release party tomorrow night at Union Pool before heading out on their fall tour with Tom Tom Club. Free watermelon slices for everyone!

EV2BK Live Music – (The) Tony Castles at Mercury Lounge

On August 5, 2010, Brooklyn up-and-comers (The) Tony Castles played a great set at Mercury Lounge, sharing the stage with Mon Khmer and Monogold and out-playing them both. Here’s a slide show of Paul, Gabbi, and Willie all rocking new suits and getting down:

No, it’s not Don Johnson you see, but rather (The) Tony Castles drummer Gabbi Wurzel. Also, in more Tony Castles suit-news, keep an eye out for the upcoming video release for the first single, where the suits will be making their screen debut. And don’t forget to make it out to the band’s September 17 record release party at Union Pool, before their fall tour with Tom Tom Club!
