Roosevelt releasing debut LP, filmed a stripped-down live session for “Night Moves,” touring


After putting out an EP and some singles, Roosevelt (aka Marius Lauber) is finally set to release his debut album. It’s self-titled and it comes out August 19 via City Slang/Greco-Roman (pre-order). It includes his 2015 single “Night Moves,” and we’re premiering a live session video for that song in this post. It’s a stripped-down performance, with Marius playing piano and singing over a drum machine. Like Hot Chip singer Alexis Taylor’s recent solo piano album did for him, this video makes it clearer than ever that underneath the danceable beats and shiny synths, Marius is truly a skilled singer/songwriter. Check that out below, along with the video for another single off the album, “Colours / Moving On.”

Roosevelt is also going on a tour, where they’ll be performing as a trio. The tour hits NYC on September 27 at Mercury Lounge and September 28 at Rough Trade. Tickets for Merc and Rough Trade go on sale Friday (6/24) at noon with an AmEx presale starting today (6/22) at noon. All dates are listed below.
