“Saw Givers last night at Williamsburg Music Hall, so good to hear amazing music live again!!” – Roxy Faridany

Givers kicked off a tour at Music Hall of Williamsburg on January 5, two days before they played Carnegie Hall with Preservation Hall Jazz Band, My Morning Jacket, Mos Def, and others. Pictures from the Brooklyn show are in this post.

The Brooklyn show was also with Yellow Ostrich who Free Williamsburg says has the “ability to make a three-piece sound like a thirteen-piece.” FW, who were at the show, also wrote Givers “play a version of Louisiana Cajun music if it were shaken inside a Diet Coke with Mentos.” The engergetic crowd was loud and dancing.

Givers, now on the road, are part of the recently announced Coachella lineup, and play a string of dates with Dr. Dog in March.

In other news, Yellow Ostrich will release the followup to 2010’s The Mistress with Strange Land on March 6 via Barsuk. Like The Mistress, the new album was self-produced by the band, but unlike that album, which was recorded entirely by frontman Alex Schaaf, Strange Land also features the work of multi-instrumentalist Jon Natchez (Beirut) and drummer Michael Tapper (Bishop Allen, We Are Scientists) and was engineered by Beau Sorensen (Death Cab for Cutie, Sparklehorse). The album art and tracklist for this album is below.
