Split Single @ Metro during TNK 2014 (more by Jeff Ryan)
As discussed, Split Single is the project of Jason Narducy (Verbow, Bob Mould Band, ex-Telekinesis, etc.) with Britt Daniel (Spoon, Divine Fits) on bass and Jon Wurster (Superchunk, Mountain Goats, Bob Mould Band) on drums. The trio entered the studio in the summer of 2012 to track a full-length album, which we now know is called Fragmented World and is due out on April 1. You can take a listen to "Waiting For The Sun," "Monolith," and "The Last Goodbye" from the LP at the bottom of this post. Cover art and tracklisting for Fragmented World can also be found below.
Narducy has been playing shows as Split Single, without Daniel and Wurster, and will continue to do so this spring. His touring bandmates for appearances at SXSW 2014 and a record release show at Schubas on April 5 (tickets) include Tim Remis and Ben Trokan (Reigning Sound).

Landmarks also have some upcoming shows on the horizon. They'll first join Courtney Barnett at the Empty Bottle on February 18. Radar Eyes are also on the bill, and advance tickets are still available.

Many give Kickstarter and like services a go. Few campaigns end up doing well -- Amanda Palmer, Parallax Sounds, Marissa Nadler, Cafe Mustache, etc. -- but we can add John Vanderslice to that crowd-funding success list. Earlier this year, he launched a campaign to fund the release of two new records: an original LP called Dagger Beach and a full cover of David Bowie's Diamond Dogs. Vanderslice asked for $18,500 and received close to $80,000! The more money he received, the more he was able to do with exclusives for backers. Some of those things included unique 4x6 photographs and songs written for backers. Both records are out now.
John Vanderslice will be embarking on a fall U.S. tour in celebration of these albums. That tour includes a performance at Schubas on October 30 with Samantha Crain. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (8/18) at noon CST. He's also playing Peoria's Apollo Theatre on Halloween.
