After an incredible 2012 that saw the band make their late night TV debut on Jimmy Fallon and their sophomore album Threads win numerous accolades including a selection as one of NPR’s top 50 releases of the year, Minneapolis trio Now, Now are starting 2013 strong. The band are excited to announce extensive winter/spring tour dates, including stints on the road with Minus The Bear and Circa Survive, as well select dates opening for Bob Mould as his personally invited guests.
Threads, the 2nd full-length release from Minneapolis based Now, Now, explores the fragile and often transitory nature of our existence, our perceived understanding of the world around us and relationships shared with others physically and emotionally. Produced by Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, An Horse, New Pornographers), Threads forms a sprawling sonic endeavor that showcases the bands incredible growth as songwriters and musicians. Vulnerable vocals give way to oceans of sound retaining definition via deftly layered guitar parts augmented by lingering synths which alternate between background and center stage.
THE LONELY FOREST
The Lonely Forest are from Anacortes WA, just north of Seattle… they’ve toured with Death Cab for Cutie, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Joy Formidable and Portugal the Man and have appeared at numerous festivals including Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, Noise Pop and Bumbershoot.
As grows their fanbase, The Lonely Forest ‘s music is continually expanding and evolving. At its core, the music features John Van Deusen’s soaring vocals and keyboard melodies wrapped tightly around Tony Ruland’s expansive guitar anchored by a heavy yet nimble rhythm section. The contrast of brilliant pop songs featuring lyrics about spiritual longing wedded to an almost prog-rock sensibility appeals to broad swath of listeners, from wide-eyed teenagers to jaded scenesters. As always, inclusion is important to these guys.
