Pillowfight

Laughing Squid writes:

Dan The Automator fans should get goosebumps while watching this preview for his new Pillowfight project with singer Emily Wells. The upcoming album, due later this year, also features scratches by Kid Koala (who's worked with Dan past project such at Lovage and Deltron 3030) and well as visuals by David Choe.

Wells has been previewing some Pillowfight songs during some recent shows with Kid Koala (see video below). I'm digging the mix of soulful vocals with Dan's catchy beats. It's somewhat reminiscent of his Handsome Boy Modelling School track with Chan Marshall of Cat Power.

Both videos, and two SXSW dates are listed, below.

Kid Koala will be part of the group at SXSW, as will Emily Wells (who plays a BrooklynVegan day party later in the week, on Saturday to be exact). Emily headlines Bowery Ballroom in April as part of a recently announced tour in support of a new album.

Not long after SXSW, and after some dates in Canada and France, Kid Koala will come to NYC for the previously mentioned headphone concerts, except what was two shows, is now THREE. An April 4th early show was added and is on sale now (tickets for the late show and the day-before show are also still on sale).

All dates and those videos below...

As much as I hate Dan being a dick to Prince Paul, this is awesome.
