TASSEOMANCY // 29 PALMS (VIDEO) + EU TOUR w/ ANDY SHAUF


TASSEOMANCY share surreal video for 29 Palms from the critically acclaimed “Do Easy” LP, out now on Hand Drawn Dracula, and announce EU/UK Tour w/ Andy Shauf. Purchase Limited Canadian Only Clear Vinyl Version of Do Easy HERE.

“The video for 29 Palms was created by our friend the very talented visual artist Jesi Jordan on one of her many adventures. To us, this song encapsulates so much: written for women; for artists and for any human who has ever felt themselves falling into nothingness while grasping at their own poetic string. Whether it be it a loss of self, loss of another or an attempt to create meaning in what we have all been recently reminded to be an obscene, unjust and uncertain world. This video helps push past the disappointment, the shock, and transforms the energy of apathy and apprehension into action. Jesi’s video is like a friend who calls us up on the phone and gently reminds us that life is not elsewhere but is happening right now and that’s all we’ve got. Immersed in the imaginative world of J.J. and her larger then life puppetry, 29 Palms gives us permission to be playful, to be soft, to be curious, to be real and to be constantly becoming our own stinky selves. SO how are you going to take your time? Why not seed the source of your own late blooming?” ~ Tasseomancy

“a witchy brew of new age mysticism, Cocteau Twins-style dreampop and good humor, with the Lightmans’ ethereal harmonies floating overtop” ~ BROOKLYN VEGAN

“Hands and eyes whirl in surreal and vibrant landscapes until the song becomes centered around a slow bass line. The video has the same addictive and hypnotic effect of that Windows 95 screensaver maze. As geometric shapes pass through one another, it’s easy to let your mind sink into a meditative trance.” ~ AD HOC

“a digital shitshow of mutating eyes, planetary spheres and ritualistic activities, all presented through what seems like a ’90s VR filter” ~ EXCLAIM! MAGAZINE

“think 60s pop, think Paisley Underground, think early R.E.M., The Go-Betweens or even those initial Creation Records 45s – Anglophone guitar pop that nods towards its influences while stepping patiently out on its own path, ‘Seeds’ is the sign that bright things are about to occur.

“This fifth album from twin sisters Sari and Romi Lightman is easily the finest work of art to come out of Canada all year. Do Easy is a beautiful, accessible, jaw droppingly big sounding 11 track lesson in how to do witty, wise, lyrical dream-pop with the sort of perfection that the genre deserves.” ~ MONOCLE / MAGAZINE
 
“The Toronto-born duo have tapped into their folk origins to explore the otherworldly dimensions of pop music in their new release Do Easy (due out November 18 via Bella Union). The album’s atmospheric grooves draw from synth-pop and prog-rock to create a psychedelic pop experience.” ~ I-D MAGAZINE.

HIS CLANCYNESS // ALBUM PREMIERE VIA BROOKLYN VEGAN


HIS CLANCYNESS‘ new album, Isolation Culture, is streaming now in advance of October 14th release via via BROOKLYN VEGAN // PRE-ORDER the VERY LIMITED North American Gatefold Vinyl HERE.

“His Clancyness’ new album, Isolation Culture, finds the group in full blossom. They made the LP at Portishead’s Invada Studios with Matthew Johnson (Hookworms) and Stu Matthews (BEAK>, Anika, Portishead), and the dark vibe that that may conjure is definitely apparent here, but so is Clancy and the group’s way with a chorus. If you dig Wolf Parade and Preoccupations, you will likely find much to like here.” ~ BROOKLYN VEGAN

*** Dates TBA + Limited Canada Only Coloured Vinyl Edition /// Pre-Order HERE.
 
Missoula has hypnotic rhythms with jazz brass and Bon Iver-y vocals. It creeps and slinks, with bursts of colour peppering the shadowy bones of the song – noises swoop in and out of earshot, never lingering long enough to clutter the atmosphere.”
~ THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“pulling from faery folk, Cocteau Twins and other mid-’80s 4AD, Kate Bush and other earthy, witchy sources.
It’s a really lovely record” ~ BROOKLYN VEGAN

“musical cues from Hebraic tradition, but enters the modern age with waves of warm synths and cool, hypnotic vocals” ~ EXCLAIM!

“holds itself as a deadbeat anthem for a generation unsure if anything is possible, synths and steady drums inhaling and exhaling, that’s worth drawing into your arms based on the tamber of their vocals alone – creatively endearing and deleightfully unsettling”
