<p>Back in June, vocal octet <a href=Roomful of Teeth played an Ecstatic Summer show with Merrill Garbus (aka the brains behind tUnE-yArDs) to perform some compositions that Merrill had written for the group along with some tUnE-yArDs songs as well. Some of those compositions will appear on the new self-titled Roomful of Teeth album, which is due out October 30 via New Amsterdam Records. One of those songs, "Quizassa," can be downloaded above, and it's instantly noticeable that Merrill had something to do with it. The album also features songs composed by William Brittelle, Caleb Burnhans, Rinde Eckert, Judd Greenstein, Caroline Shaw, and Sarah Kirkland Snider. The album tracklist and cover art are below.

Roomful of Teeth will also play a free show in NYC on Thursday (10/4) at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center. The show starts at 10:30. They'll be performing material from their album and also the NY premieres of new works by Missy Mazzoli.

Album info is below.

I wonder what kind of "retainer" they have to hire them? I guess I know the "drill"!

it must be a pain in the ass to write about tune yards and any band that uses that upper/lower case shit. I'm also talking about you ooOOOOoo or OOOoooOOo, whatever....

God, insufferable. And that picture: some look like they're screaming for their lives, others like they're just absentmindedly opening their mouths. If it is supposed to be a "roomful of teeth," they need to have an agreement of intention before the pic is taken. Otherwise it just looks like a bunch of theatre majors winging it.

Everyone's laughing at his lameness? No, I'm laughing at the frowny baby in the picture and all of the people who take him and his band seriously.

Complete BS. They're scared. Homeboy who ran that Africa scam got word that their were a few hard pipe-hitting hipsters waiting for him.
