Beat Connection

Seattle's Beat Connection are back with a new album, The Palace Garden, which will be out June 19 on Moshi Moshi/That Tender Age. Still dancing in the balaeric realm, the new album is a little less hazy than it's predecessor -- you can stream two tracks below as well as check out the LP's cover art and full track list.

The group, who have expanded from a duo to a four-piece, are going on tour to support the new album, stopping in NYC on July 5 at Knitting Factory with White Arrows, Teen Daze and Rioux. Tickets for that show are on sale. All upcoming dates are listed below.
