Aloha streaming new album, add tour dates
Marimba-loving indie vets Aloha are releasing their seventh album and first in six years, Little Windows Cut Right Through, next week (5/6) via Polyvinyl, and they're now streaming it in full. As mentioned, they're taking an overt '80s-style approach this time (with The Blue Nile and Prefab Sprout namedropped as influences), and much of the album makes that very clear. It's not quite like any previous Aloha album, and it's a very welcome return for the band who have been gone for too long. Stream the whole thing below (via Stereogum).
Since we last spoke, Aloha also added a few more dates to their tour schedule. One happens in NYC on October 8 at Baby's All Right. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Updated dates are listed below.
