Jennifer O’Connor – new album, tour dates (w/ Wilco tonight)
Both of the MP3's linked above are off Jennifer O'Connor's new album called 'Here With Me' - out on Matador Records August 19th.
Jennifer recorded her new LP/CD 'Here With Me' (OLE 787-1,2) earlier this year with John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth) at Brooklyn's Headgear Studios....Backed by a crack backing trio of Jon Langmead, Michael Broadlieb and Michael Strandberg (and joined, briefly, by Hold Steady keyboardist Franz Nicolay), O'Connor tackles her most evocative pile of relationship-tunes with something approaching surgical precision...
Jennifer's next NYC show is tonight (August 13) at McCarren Pool. She's opening for Wilco. Her next NYC show after that is August 21st at Mercury Lounge. 'Dump' aka James McNew of Yo La Tengo is opening. Tickets are on sale. She's also doing an instore at Permanent Records in Brooklyn on the 23rd and playing all the places listed below....
