With Harlem Shakes now gone, local boy Todd Goldstein turned his one-man band solo project that predated HS into his main indie-pop focus. Arms is no longer Todd alone, though, as he’s hired a rhythm section. The trio’s Pianos show at last year’s CMJ was impressive enough to win over the crowd; while awaiting their second album, their return to Pianos makes for an appropriately intimate environment for their sweet, sad-eyed tunes. Next, they’ll hit the road alongside the Walkmen and Japandroids. With Birds and Batteries and Mt. Bearington.
