While Pygmy Lush's pedigree wouldn't exactly scream (pun intended) soft-spoken folk, psychedelia, and post-rock, the former members of pg.99 and City of Caterpillar handle the duties well on their current LP, Old Friends. The Kurt-Ballou-produced record, which appeared via Lovitt earlier this year, is exactly as their surname implies, lush. It's also spacious, pensive, emotional and enthralling. Stream Old Friends below.
Pygmy Lush is on the road now, and will hit Death By Audio on 11/5 with Ancient Sky, Ghastly City Sleep, and Alex Drewchin. $8 gets you in.
Full tour dates, a recent live video and that LP stream is below.
