Sweden's The Amazing kick off a North American tour with Tame Impala tonight in New York City. As mentioned, that tour will make its way to Chicago on November 13 for a sold-out show at Metro. Did you grab tickets in time? If not, we've got a pair to give away! Details on how to enter to win them can be found below. As we also mentioned, the group will be back in Chicago on January 19 to play Schubas with Chelsea Wolfe and King Dude as part of Tomorrow Never Knows 2013.
The Amazing's Gentle Stream LP originally hit stores in 2011 via Subliminal Sounds, but just saw a US release in October via Partisan Records. Gentle Stream is a collection of shimmery, experimental folk with a tip of the hat to roots rock. You can take a listen to Gentle Steam in its entirety at the bottom of this post.
