For what might be the strangest pairings of any Pool Parties this summer, on August 15th the Waterfront will host slinky disco !!!, vintage soul Lee Fields and the Expressions, froggy blues The Strange Boys and synth-rock Future Islands.

For the headliner, !!!, the date is currently their only NYC show. The group will head out on a lengthy tour of North America and Europe starting in September. Those shows are in support of their new album, Strange Weather, Isn't It?, due August 24th on Warp (that's the icy cover above).

!!! has gone through a few line-up changes since the release of Myth Takes and now consists of frontman Nic Offer, guitarist Mario Andreoni, horn player/keyboardist Daniel Gorman, and saxophonist/percussionist Allan Wilson. Vocalist Shannon Funchess (of Light Asylum) and drummer Paul Quattrone (of Modey Lemon) round out the live lineup.

The first single off the new album is "AM/FM," which you can download at their website. The psychelically-sprinkled video for the song (directed, maybe not surprisingly once you see it, by Black Dice) and all tour dates are below...
