Nine months have passed since Glass Teeth tore a hole through St. Louis music, only to bow out the same night as its CD release show. Drummer Mike Hansen and venerable front-man Jeff Robtoy have since moved on to more aggressive pastures in Pillow Talk. Hansen's break-beats and Robtoy's antagonistic banter draw clear parallels to their former band, but Pillow Talk features a metallic Albini-style guitar tone which differentiates the band from its predecessor. Comparisons aside, Pillow Talk offers vibrant psychedelic rock riffs with a vicious punk-rock delivery.

Don't Go Home Empty Handed: Pillow Talk is set to release its first recorded demo this evening, so don't leave without a shiny copy of your very own.
