LA dreampop artist Vinyl Williams released Leminscate last year, a lysergic journey down the astral plane that falls just slightly to the rock side of what Toro Y Moi is doing. If you haven't checked it out yet, the whole thing is streamable via Spotify. He also just released a cover of "Walking In Space" which showtune afficianados will know is from free love musical Hair. As his sound is already in that real, it's not too different from the original but Vinyl Williams definitely puts his on spin on it. We've got the premiere of that cover below.
As mentioned, Vinyl Williams will be heading out on tour with Mount Kimbie and Holy Other, which kicks off in NYC at Bowery Ballroom on May 30 (tickets). The day before (5/29), Vinyl Williams headlines Glasslands. Lushes and Images are also on the bill and tickets for that show are on sale now.
Vinyl Willimas has also created a special interactive tour flyer for his upcoming dates, that allow you to explore their itinerary via a Myst-style game. For those bad at Myst-style games, there's a video walkthrough, along with an old-fashioned list of dates, below.
Tamaryn is DJing at New York's Museum of Modern Art on Sunday evening (4/7) as part of a PopRally event called "Abstract Currents." Against projections of one-minute videos submitted by the public, Tamryn will provide a "hypnotic soundtrack to the collectively built abstract videoscape." It's in conjunction with MoMA's Abstraction, 1910-1925 and Abstract Generation: Now in Print exhibition and tickets are still available.
Later this month, Tamaryn will be in Texas' state capital for Austin Psych Fest (Apr. 26 - 28), which features a pretty amazing line-up that runs the gammut of "psychedelic," including Deerhunter, Spectrum, Black Mountain, OS Mutantes, The Moving Sidewalks, Clinic, Besnard Lakes, Elephant Stone, Roky Erickson, Sweden's GOAT and a bunch more. The fest just announced the day-by-day line-ups which are listed below.
UK duo Mount Kimbie have been discussing a sophomore album and recently revealed the first single, "Made To Stray" (if you were wondering who sang on that track, we now know it was the members themselves), and now the album is finally officially announced. It's called Cold Spring Fault Less Youth and will be out on May 28 via Warp. In addition to the Mount Kimbie guys bringing their own vocals into the mix, two songs also feature vocals from King Krule. That's the album art above, and the tracklist and a stream/free download widget of "Made To Stray" are below.
