DOWNLOAD: Sweet Valley - "Suzuka 9 Hours" (MP3)
GZA @ Music Hall of Williamsburg in June (BKLYN) (more by Ryan Barkan)
As seen on BrooklynVegan, Wu-Tang Clan member GZA knows how to package a tour. He'll hit the road in mid-September with Killer Mike, Sweet Valley (aka Wavves' Nathan Williams and his brother Joel [aka Kynan]), and Bear Hands (who play Schubas tonight (8/1) with Fort Lean). That tour visits Chicago's Metro on September 19. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but check Metro's website for updates.
Sweet Valley's debut mixtape, Stay Calm, is due out on August 7 via Fool's Gold. You can stream the album tracks "Suzuka 9 Hours" and "Malibu Games" below; the former is also available for download at the top of this post. Nathan will also be joining GZA onstage during this tour, which has happened once before.
