Wisconsin's All Tiny Creatures are touring in support of their new album Harbors, making two stops in New York: June 4 at The Sycamore and then June 5 at Mercury Lounge. Both shows are with Washington D.C.'s The Caribbean. All dates are listed below.
All Tiny Creatures is led by Thomas Wincek of Collection of Colonies of Bees and Volcano Choir. The latter's bandmate, Justin Vernon, contributes vocals to Harbors track "An Iris" which you can download above along with another cut from the album ("Glass Bubbles," which features vocals from 12 Rods' Ryan Olcot). Like his other two projects, All Tiny Creatures features meticulous performances -- weaving guitar loops together into a larger pattern -- but this band is more rhythmic based. There are definitely Krautrock elements here but it is also effervescent and melodic. It's a lovely record.
Justin Vernon was recently in town to perform a Bonnie Rait cover on Jimmy Fallon who also interviewed him on the Monday night show. If you missed it, we posted the videos.
Both of the tracks above were released as part of mixtapes All Tiny Creatures made that features non-LP music which you can also download above. All tour dates are below.
