Hand Habits

Hand Habits’ excellent sophomore album placeholder came out two years and some change ago and Meg Duffy has been slowly building up to a follow-up, with some detours along the way. They’re in the midst of a rollout for Yes/And, a new collaborative project with the producer Joel Ford, and earlier this year they released the brief EP dirt.

Like So Much Desire suggested we were in for a very different Flock Of Dimes — it was an intimate, reflective, spare collection of songs.
