Orca Team

Charming, danceable Seattle trio Orca Team have already been through NYC twice this year, not to mention just about everywhere else in North American and the UK, but have just announced another North American tour than can only be described as massive where the band will criss-cross the continent twice between now and Thanksgiving, with two separate visits to the Big Apple.

The band will open for Laetitia Sadier on her upcoming tour (a smart pairing) that includes two stops in NYC: Mercury Lounge on September 21 (tix) and Knitting Factory on September 22 (tix). Orca Team will then be back around CMJ, with a show at Muchmore's on October 18 and the Happy Happy Birthday to Me label showcase at Public Assembly on October 20. All tour dates are listed at the bottom of this post.

Orca Team's terrific new album, Restraint, is one of 2012's underheard gems and you can stream it below via Spotify. And they're a great live band too, so do try and make it one of the dates below. Chances are they are playing near you.
