Quintron & Miss Pussycat (more by Leia Jospe)
Studios are for suckers. From January 29th through May 2nd of last year, Quintron could be found at the New Orleans Museum of Art recording the new LP Sucre Du Sauvage. Quintron used the Museum to its full advantage, walking the grounds to make field recordings of wildlife, riffing in front of patrons and even roping some in for backing vocals, hand claps and other duties. When the time came to close up shop at NOMA, the record was finished and nothing was added/changed outisde of the original recordings. Check out two tracks from the record, "Elevator" and "Face Down in The Gutter", available for download above/streaming below and look for the album on April 12th via Goner Records.
So far Quintron & Miss Pussycat have no NYC dates scheduled for the near future, but the pair can be found on the now sold-out Bruise Cruise which departs from Miami on February 25th. Miss Pussycat recently made a promo video for the Bruise Cruise, and you can check that video out alongside all tour dates below. On and Quintron has promised, "Full Summer Tour with Wizzard Sleeve, Cave, and Jeff the Brotherhood Coming Soon!"
In related news, many of the participants of Bruise Cruise are touring and hitting NYC as well. Black Lips/Vivian Girls are going on the road together. Ty Segall is playing NYC twice. Surfer Blood is playing NYC and touring with Trail of Dead (though they aren't playing TOD's record release party at Littlefield).
Song streams, tour dates, and a video is below.
