Automelodi (aka Montreal's Xavier Paradis) is back with his second album, Surlendemains Acides, which comes out digitally on October 8 and on vinyl November 1 via Electric Voice. The new album is a little more synth noir than the (relatively) poppy sounds heard on Automelodi's terrific 2010 debut, but no less adept with hooks. We've got the premiere of "Digresse," from the album, which you can stream below.

Automelodi will be in NYC to play a record release show next Wednesday (10/9) at Home Sweet Home as part of the Nothing Changes party. Dream Affair are also playing and Martial Canterel will DJ. After that he'll head to Europe for a tour. All dates are listed below.
