SASAMI (ex-Cherry Glazerr) has a new song, touring w/ King Tuff & Cut Worms

If you’ve seen Cherry Glazerr live in the past year or so, you may have noticed that keyboardist/backup vocalist Sasami Ashworth is just as much of a force as band leader Clementine Creevy. Sasami actually isn’t in Cherry Glazerr anymore, but she’s currently making her own music as SASAMI, and if you like Cherry Glazerr (or the last two decades of indie rock in general), you’ll probably like this. She recently released the single “Callous,” which has both an airy dream pop side and a heavier grungy side, and Sasami blends those sounds with expertise. It’s really good, effortlessly enjoyable stuff. Listen below.

SASAMI is on tour now with Baths and No Joy (maybe you caught the NYC show at Elsewhere last week), and in May/June she’ll be opening part of King Tuff‘s tour, which also has Cut Worms on the bill.

SASAMI’s run with King Tuff and Cut Worms includes the NYC show on May 18 at Music Hall of Williamsburg (tickets). All dates are listed below.

In related news, Cut Worms were added to part of Jenny Lewis‘ tour, including the sold-out Jersey City show on July 27. To make the news even more related, Jenny Lewis also sings on the recently-released King Tuff album.
