Brooklyn's Ski Lodge have finally announced details of their debut album, Big Heart, which will be out August 20 via Dovecoat. That's the cover art above. The record was made in Los Angeles with producer Louis Pescov (of Fool's Gold), who produced Best Coast's debut. The LP's first single is ultra-catchy "Boy," which owes more than a little to The Smith's "Ask," and you may have seen them play in our BV Sessions video. You can stream the studio version below.
Ski Lodge have a few local dates coming up: Saturday (6/22) at Cameo with Superhumanoids and Bowmont (tickets); June 26 at 285 Kent with The Denzels, Haybaby and TOONS (tickets); and the Ace Hotel on July 14.
That Cameo show initially included Vancouver's Gold & Youth, but they've unfortunately dropped off the show.
All dates are listed, along with the single stream, below.
