The new Nels Cline Singers album, Macroscope, will be released on April 29, with a slightly condensed/reconfigured version to follow a month later on vinyl. This will be the Singers’ first album with bassist Trevor Dunn, and it will also be their first album released on vinyl.
Even better, there will be a short U.S. tour! Here are the dates:
May 1 - New York / Le Poisson Rouge
May 2 - Philadelphia / Johnny Brenda’s
May 4 - Hamilton / DC
May 6 - Evanston / Space / Evanston, IL (Chicago play)
May 7 - Dazzle Jazz / Denver, CO
May 8 - Largo / Los Angeles, CA
May 9 - The Chapel / San Francisco, CA
I’ll definitely be at the Philly and DC shows, and I’m already scheming about how I might make it to one or two others, too.
Follow the link to hear a song called “Companion Piece” from the new album. It’s excellent!
