Darwin Deez

Darwin Deez will release his third album, Double Down, via Lucky Number on September 18. It finds him in pretty much the same danceable guitar pop mode as his 2009 debut, scaling back a bit from 2013's more lush Songs For Imaginative People, with spare arrangements allowing for a lot of breathing room (kinda the way early Spoon records were). His big-hearted songs don't need a lot of gussying up, his warm voice does much of the heavy lifting. You can stream "Time Machine" and "Kill Your Attitude" below.

You can catch Darwin Deez on his tour in November and December, though he plays NYC on Wednesday (8/26) at Baby's All Right with Junior Prom, Strange Names on the bill as well. Tickets are on sale.

All tour dates are listed below.
