Prawn, Slingshot Dakota & People Like You going on Topshelf tour
Indie label Topshelf Records will present a tour with five of their artists this December. Prawn, Slingshot Dakota and People Like You are on all dates, with Us and Us Only joining for the first leg and Queen Moo joining for the second.
The run with Queen Moo includes a NYC show on December 22 at Baby's All Right. Tickets for that show go on sale Wednesday (8/30) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
Prawn recently announced that the followup to 2014's Kingfisher is called Run and due out on September 22. You can hear lead single "North Lynx" below.
People Like You released their new album Verse on the label in late July, and we're now premiering the video for "Variations on an Aria" off that album. If you're unfamiliar, they've got a clean, mathy sound, they make nice use of horns, and they consider jazz an influence, so there are definitely some American Football comparisons to be made here, but People Like You sound more distinct than your average Kinsella worshippers. Hear for yourself below.
Us and Us Only and Queen Moo also released new albums this year -- Full Flower and Mean Well, respectively -- and Slingshot Dakota released a new two-song single, recorded in the same sessions as last year's Break. You can stream all of that below.
