I’m very excited to be apart of this.
Identity politics are becoming less important since culture’s being blended into one big thing, especially in younger people. Kids are starting to dress the same, listen to the same music. I look at their Tumblrs and they’re all into the same things. — Toro Y Moi’s Chaz Bundick (via pitchfork)

We’re Aiming at You.
No, that isn’t a real gun. Yes, in just under 5 hours Dan will pick Ryan and I up in order to make our mid-morning flight to San Francisco. Yes, we are going on a West Coast run, with a handful of new songs. No, we will not be making our next record with Prince. Whoever told you that is a liar. Yes, we are making a full-length. No, it will not be a dubstep, trap, orangle-blossom step, metal or acoustic record. From what we’ve demoed, it sounds, very…complex. Dan is coming up with sounds that make it hard to even focus. It’s fucking…nuts. I haven’t really dug into the batch of recordings he’s made, but our first round—which will be played at every show—is a nice jump-off point for a band who has yet to be labeled under a genre—yes this is disconcerting—and makes me think, “fuck it.” Why not make a record that pushes all of our influences into the realms we wished they should’ve gone to?
My thoughts exactly.
Here’s where we’ll be.
1-17: San Francisco, at Rickshaw Stop w/ The Knocks
1-18 Los Angeles, at The Echo w/ Warships
1-20 San Diego, at The Griffin w Social Club
1-21 Hollywood, at Bardot Hollywood w/ Robert Delong

cyanidebliss asked: Holy crap! You guys were in Philly?! I'm actually upset that I only found out about you the other day now. I'm going to try to gather a bunch of friends if you come around here again because your sound is lovely and I'm excited over the news of an album!! I don't even have a band fully formed but all of you are a great inspiration and I wish you luck! (PS: Tom writes like a pro; it's like he's talking to the reader)
We are coming back to philly. We need as many people as possible to get out there so spread the word! Thanks! http://www.songkick.com/concerts/14834019-gemini-club-at-kung-fu-necktie
