Montreal’s Pottery have announced their debut album, Welcome to Bobby’s Motel, which will be out April 10 via Partisan. The band made the album at Montreal’s Break Glass Studios with producer Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, Snail Mail) and while nervy influences that were abundant on their debut EP are still here, Pottery are working with a wider palette as can be heard on decidedly danceable first single “Texas Drums Pt I & II.” Talking Heads might be the first thing to come to mind, but there’s a lot more going on here, sonically, too. Watch the rather weird video for it, below.

Pottery will also be touring this spring, with shows in Toronto, Burlington, Philadelphia, DC, NYC, Boston and Montreal. The NYC show happens at The Dance on May 7 and tickets will be on sale soon. All dates are listed, along with cover art and tracklist for Welcome to Bobby’s Motel, below.
