New Orleans' Woozy are releasing a four-way split with Ex-Breathers, Ovlov and Gnarwhal on November 4 via Community Records (pre-order). Woozy contribute two songs, "The Other Half Lives" and "Magma Stoddard," the latter of which premieres in this post. The track combines the math rock noodling of Minus the Bear or Maps & Atlases with the fuzz pop of early Wavves or PAWS, and it's a good mix. You can check that one out below.
Woozy are kicking off a tour in Tallahassee this Thursday (9/18) and hitting NYC on October 3 at Palisades with The Great Void, Life Size Maps and Bluffing. No advance tickets at the moment, $5 admission. All dates are listed below.
Woozy member John St Cyr's other band Native America also have new music on the way. Their new album, Grown Up Wrong, will be out on November 18 via Inflated Records. Its single "Like A Dream," is a cool take on mid '60s rock, sounding something like if "Rain"-era Beatles covered "Needles and Pins." You can hear that one below too. Native America have a TBA tour, but we do know they'll be in NYC for CMJ, so stay tuned for more details on that.
