Back in April, we mentioned that California's Mariee Sioux had finally gotten around to releasing her new full length, Gift for the End, and it's out now as the first release for new Brooklyn Label Whale Watch Records. The album is one of the finest psychedelic folk releases of the year, and if you've yet to hear it, you can stream some tracks from the album below or listen to it on Spotify.
When we last spoke, we mentioned that Mariee had promised a North American tour for the summer/fall. That tour has finally been announced and it includes two Brooklyn dates: September 8 at The Rock Shop and September 9 at Zebulon. Both dates are with Original Bingo Club. No advance tickets for either show at the moment.
A list of all dates and those song streams are below.
Mariee Sioux - "Homeopathic"
Mariee Sioux - "Swimming Through Stone"
