Mozart's Sister, the solo project from Caila Thompson-Hannant (Think About Life, Shapes & Sizes), just released her debut, Being, via Paper Bag last month. A mix of mid-'90s dance and R&B influences, Calia definitely brings her own strong personality to the album. You can listen to the whole thing via Rdio and check out a video and track stream below.
Calia and her band are about to head out on a Canadian tour with PS I Love You (who were just in NYC this past weekend with Frog Eyes), wrapping up with shows at next month's Pop Montreal festival. After that, Mozart's Sister will be in NYC in October, playing The Studio @ Webster Hall on October 28. Tickets for that show are on sale now. That's just after CMJ, so perhaps Calia will be here for that as well? All current dates are listed, along with streams, below...
