Dark Dark Dark

Baroque quintet Dark Dark Dark will release their new album, Who Needs Who, on October 2 via Supply and Demand. The day after the record comes out, the group -- who split their time between Minneapolis and New Orleans -- will head out on tour, hitting NYC for two dates: October 12 at Knitting Factory (tix) and October 13 at Le Poisson Rouge (tix). Both shows are with Emily Wells and all tour dates are listed at the bottom of this post.

The new album's creation was a tumultuous one, as founders Nona and Marshall LaCount split as a couple in late 2011. But tumult and heartache sometimes lead to beautiful music, and if lead single "Tell Me" is any indication, that is the case here. You can stream it and another album track below.

Streams and tour dates are listed below.

The Dark Dark Dark piano player is great. I love her voice. She's such a wonderful singer. I think the lyrics are beautiful too.
