Syd Arthur

UK combo Syd Arthur's new album, Sound Mirror, is out next week (5/20).  A psychedelic brew of jazzy rhythms, proggy proclivities (their violinist is Kate Bush's nephew), faery folk, and sunshine melodies, it's all very 1972. You can stream it in full right now (via Stereogum), below.

The band's tour with Sean Lennon's The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger starts next week and will hit NYC on June 5 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are still available. After that tour ends, Syd Arthur will swing back through the area for Northside Festival at Knitting Factory on June 12. Tickets for the Knit show are on sale now, and you can also try to get in using your Northside badge.
