Charlottesville's Invisible Hand, fronted by Adam Smith, would like for us to reference The Kinks in even the shortest description about their band. However, continuously referencing one of their life-long influences is becoming a disservice to the strikingly unique and severely addictive intellectual 60's-inspired riff-pop genre in which The Invisible Hand has found themselves thriving.

Invisible Hand - Aja EP/LP
200 / Black
Released October 2012.
Down With Friends
The Invisible Hand returns with a new collection of songs that bridge the gap between pop licks and sonic experimentation. Sing-alongs like "There's Room In My Will" stand aside sprawling behemoths like "Big Star." Down with Friends presents Adam Smith at new heights of creativity.
Originally released in 2007, Sleep shows the raucous side of the Invisible Hand. Out of the gate, "The New Twist" mixes classic pop influences with fuzzy guitar work, creating a driving force doesn't let up until the album is done. Adam Smith's knack for melody is ever-present.
