Hand Habits “Something Wrong”

Every Friday on Left of the Dial 7-11pm, Music Director Rick McNulty shares the best thing he heard that week.

There is something euphoric to me about entering [the] void with intention. . .”
-Meg Duffy a.k.a. Hand Habits

Hand Habits is the solo project of Los Angeles based studio musician Meg Duffy. Like a 21st century version of the Wrecking Crew or the Funk Brothers, Duffy’s contributions to the indie rock are immense but inconspicuous.

As a studio musician they’ve recorded with Weyes Blood, Sasami, William Tyler, Perfume Genius, Sylvan Esso, as well as the War On Drugs on their Grammy-winning A Deeper Understanding.

Duffy’s solo moniker Hand Habits just announced a new record called Sugar the Bruise, due to release June 16th.


“Meg Duffy, aka Hand Habits, has played guitar for Weyes Blood, The War on Drugs, Sasami, and a member of Kevin Morby’s band for several years. Meg uses the guitar on their new single as more of a vibe than a billy club and layers the song with some spooky harmonies. If you’re longing to take a friendship to another level, this song is for you.
