Colleen and A Hawk and a Hacksaw are touring...

"On her latest Leaf release, Cécile Schott leaves sampling behind entirely, crafting elegant, barely-there compositions from the pure timbres of mostly old instruments." [Pitchfork gives Colleen's new one an 8.0]

"Jeremy Barnes, who is still perhaps best known as the drummer for Neutral Milk Hotel, has not allowed the grass to grow beneath his feet during that outfit's continuing period of inactivity. After working with his post-NMH group Bablicon, Barnes has seen spot duty with Bright Eyes, the Gerbils, and Broadcast, and for the past few years has apparently been living life as something of an itinerant minstrel. [Pitchfork gives A Hawk and a Hacksaw's new one a 7.3]
