Human HighwayHuman Highway

We are very proud to announce the debut release from Toronto's Human Highway, a duo featuring Islands' frontman Nick Thorburn, alongside seminal Canadian songwriter, Jim Guthrie, entitled "Moody Motorcycle."

To celebrate the album's release, courtesy of the good folks at Suicide Squeeze Records, the band has announced their first ever live performances for the lucky few in the New York Metropolitan area. Appearing as co-headliners w/ Harper Simon, Thorburn and Guthrie will bring Human Highway, for the first time ever, to New York's Cake-Shop on Monday, September 15th, and the lovely Joe's Pub on Tuesday, September 16th.

Joe's Pub tickets don't seem to be available as of the time I'm writing this. Cake Shop probably won't have advance tix.

Stream the entire Human Highway album on their MySpace. The tracklist is below.

"Human Highway" is also "a 1982 comedy film starring and co-directed by Neil Young under his pseudonym Bernard Shakey." Neil Young also just announced some shows.

Nick Thorburn's other band Islands is playing a NYC show on August 23rd.
