Two years after Hotline TNT’s Will Anderson dropped the band’s Nineteen in Love on YouTube, he and the group are back with a new LP, Cartwheel, that arrives via Third Man. “It’s about breaking hearts and being heartbroken,” Anderson told Pitchfork earlier this year, noting that the group’s inclinations toward loud, fuzzy walls of guitars are “supposed to sound huge.” Read Pitchfork’s Rising feature “Hotline TNT Filter Heartbreak Through Dizzying, Distorted Guitar Rock.”
