NEW VID,YO + SUMMER SHOWS
"Part of Yourself" Music Video + Single
We're pleased to present the new video for our tune "Part of Yourself." It's a wacky sci-fi universe of befuddled astronauts, wonky rocket ships and rubber monsters with tentacles. This delightfully strange, version of retro space is a fitting backdrop for dark, moody “Part of Yourself.”
We put the video with our pal / video magician Travis Gray using clips from an awesomely weird 1950’s movie titled “Voyage To The Planet Of Prehistoric Women.” Initially, our intention was to make a simple lyric video but, after going down a few internet rabbit holes we ended up with this fun, kooky thang.
“Part of Yourself” is the last track on our splendid LP Gentle Humor. The track features Kevin Junker on bass, Tevo Christmann on guitar, and Gavin McCarthy (Karate, The Band E, Ted Leo) on drums. Recorded by Matthew Girard at an funky studio in a old mill building in Nashua, NH that sadly no longer exists.
Lizard Lounge + Artbeat Shows
We'll be making a return to The Lizard Lounge for Oldjack's Last Saturdays Residency and ARTBEAT an awesome outdoor street fest in Davis Sq. Joining us will be special guests Liz McBride (Parks) and Pat Hanlin (JamTones, Rebuilder etc. etc.) + Our good buddy / OG drummer John Drislane will be joining us behind ye kit!

ALL SOULS BALL RETURNS!
I get a little nutty about Halloween… As a youth I spent countless hours with friends making basement haunted houses and camcorder horror movies. Nowadays, my 'fever' is still going strong with Halloween shows like this one. Call it prolonged adolescents...I think it's just plain fun.
Sinnet is happy to present the second annual All Souls Ball! Break out your spooky-pants for another evening of campy costumes, cotton spider webs and more! Not to mention tunes from 3 of Boston's finest bands!
We will be breaking out a special set of our “spooky” jams, maybe a cover, and definitely some questionable costumes.
Friday, October 27th The Lilypad
Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion!, Sinnet and Boston Cream

NEW VIDEO + SINGLE JUST IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN
Check it out!
“Houdini Hands” features footage from “horror movies” my friends and I made in middle school. The combination of an 8mm camcorder and our fascination and slasher movies brought about some truly exquisite cinema… Live shots and editing by Travis Gray at 106 Studios. Marvel at my sweet bmx bike! Watch Dan getting stabbed with a giant, dull butcher knife! Listen to those sweet prepubescent voices crack!!
Musically, “Houdini Hands” is a spooky little number full of creepy organs, Frankenstein beats and stabbing guitar lines. Thematically, it’s about indecision and the mysterious magic of love and commitment. The track was recorded with Matt Girard (Parks, Will Dailey) in Nashua, NH. It's a sneak peek at our debut full-length due out in the coming year!
We had some good yucks putting this one together! We hope you enjoy it and have a happy Halloween!
