BTR Artists on Tour


Yeasayer

‪Brooklyn’s own Yeasayer is a self-proclaimed “Middle Eastern-pysch-snap-gospel” experimental rock band, recently signed to up and coming independent label Secretly Canadian. Heavy on the electronics, light on the multi-part chants, and with a splash of dancey rhythms, their sophomore release, Odd Blood, is a steep transformation from their first album. Yeasayer’s live act provides you with a psychedelic light show that will have you thinking you’re at a 1972 Rush concert. It’s that awesome! Check them out this spring when they head out for a lengthy international tour.‬

She & Him

Whatever the catalyst was for Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward’s musical collaboration, we are sure glad it came about. Although their music isn’t overly original, it is melodic, sweet, and a throwback to sun-soaked simpler times.  In a musical landscape where noise and reverb run rampant, She & Him’s refreshingly straightforward music and lyrics are a nice change of pace.  The songs on their first album, Volume One, are dulcet and memorable, and their aptly named second album, Volume Two, promises more of the same. Volume Two is being released March 23rd, right at the beginning of their tour. Though their tour this spring is fairly short, if I were you I’d try to catch them.  There is no guarantee how long this charming collaboration will last, and it would be a shame to miss them.‬

Washed Out

Ernest Greene, better known as Washed Out, creates lofi snyth-pop for lovers and dancers. The Georgia based musician recently debuted with a critically acclaimed EP entitled Life of Leisure. The “laid back 80’s-throwback” sound, as he puts it, makes for a fantastic renewal in shoegaze and independent pop music. The drone-shoegaze project started when Greene was living at his parent’s house in Peach Country, Georgia. His remix of Small Black’s “Despicable Dogs” is incredible, and it seems to have sparked the beginnings of a beautiful relationship. The two acts start touring together in early March.
