One week from tomorrow, Glass Candy, Chromatics, Twin Sister, Taken By Trees, Laurel Halo, A.Dd+ and Sober will descend upon the Granada Theater on Lower Greenville here in Dallas for GvsB II. We've teamed up with our friends at the Granada and Fun Fun Fun Fest to giveaway this amazing prize pack for one winner:
Here's the first full track to surface from Victoria Bergsman's lovely new Taken By Trees full-length, Other Worlds, and incidentally, the third beautiful song we've posted this week with "dreams" in the title...
GvsB II is only a few short weeks away (July 28) at the Granada Theater here in Dallas. We'll have a limited number of shirts (pictured below) available at the show and free posters for the first 100 or so people through the door, but for those of you that can't make it, we're giving away 5 shirt + poster packs right here...
Victoria Bergsman has announced a new Taken By Trees album called Other Worlds, due this fall (October 2) on Secretly Canadian. Produced by the Tough Alliance's Henning Fürst and inspired by Bergsman's recent time spent in the Hawaiian islands, the record is a beautiful, seamless union of dub/reggae and pedal steel, also inspired in part the Beach Boys + Augustus Pablo (it was seeing some of this utterly transportive new material performed live for the first time at SXSW 2012 that made it essential that we book the band for GvsB II)...
As we mentioned yesterday, GvsB II goes down Saturday, July 28, at the esteemed Granada Theater here in Dallas. We are beyond psyched about this year's show, which promises to be the party of the summer thanks to an incredible lineup, featuring Italians Do It Better labelmates Glass Candy + Chromatics, Twin Sister, Taken By Trees, Laurel Halo, and Dallas' own A.Dd+. Here's a mixtape we put together that barely scratches the surface of the bill's collective greatness, but it should help you get acquainted. Check the tracklist after the jump, and if you're into it, you can now purchase tickets for GvsB IIright here:
