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

MORE “DO EASY” PRESS:

“Oracular chants drowse on the edge of visionary rapture, while the title track seems to have found its own cosmic portal, sounds of sea, saxophone and steel drums creating a kind of tropical Avolon, a beach party hosted by Bat For Lashes and Let’s Eat Grandma. Irresistible.” ~ MOJO 4 Stars

“Exquisite… On their sumptuous third album they situate their voices on a pillowy bed of experimental pop, freak folk and, best of all, the sax-enhanced exotica of the title track.” ~ Uncut 8/10

“Easily the finest work of art to come out of Canada all year… Do Easy is a beautiful, big-sounding lesson in how to do witty, wise, lyrical dream-pop with the sort pf perfection that the genre deserves.” ~ Monocle

“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

CLASH Magazine premiere’s THE SEAMS latest track from their debut album “Meet The Seams,” released digitally and on limited cassette Oct 28th via Hand Drawn Dracula // pre-order here: goo.gl/V4kY7T

“NEW & NOTEABLE: Jangle pop just like REM used to make from a Toronto indie supergroup” ~ BANDCAMP.COM

“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. Hit play now.” ~ CLASH (UK)
