Peaking Lights at APF 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
Peaking Lights

Psychedelic duo Peaking Lights are set to bring their trippy sounds to Austin Psych Fest, and after that they'll go on a short May tour which includes a Northeast run with DC duo Protect-U (who they collaborated with at Red Bull Music Academy last year) and a west coast run with Panda Bear. The stint with Protect-U hits NYC on May 8 at Glasslands. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Protect-U (aka Aaron Leitko and Future Times co-head Mike Petillo) will release their debut full length right after that tour ends, Free USA, on May 13 via Future Times. You can pre-order it and listen to clips of each track at Rush Hour, and stream the single "Time 2 Technique" below.

Speaking of artists playing NYC around Austin Psych Fest, UK vets Loop bring their North American reunion tour to NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on 4/17 before hitting APF. Since we last spoke, Purling Hiss were added to that show, and tickets are still available.

All Peaking Lights dates are listed, with the Protect-U song stream, below...
