ANR to Host Record Release Party at Little Munich

Getting to see Miami's synth-fused indie duo Awesome New Republic — or ANR, of late — in Palm Beach County is enough of a delicacy in itself. Supplement that with the draw of a brand-new Discosoma Records seven-inch platter for "Big Problem"/"Dead Gulf" debuting that night, and the evening should be veritable sweetbreads for the most discerning of local musical palates.

Incidentally, the dirty dance anthem "Big Problem" will be on ANR's forthcoming second full-length album, Stay Kids. Members Michael-John Hancock and Brian Robertson did manage to shop the album abroad to the English Something in Construction label, but its stateside release has steadily slid from fall 2010 to sometime in February or March of this year. Perhaps a warm reception at Little Munich will be enough of a nudge to put that sucker out already.
