Tune-Yards’ universally acclaimed new album I can feel you creep onto my private life was released earlier this year.  Entertainment Weekly called the album “politically urgent,” the New York Times called it “a sleek, radical evolution” and NPR Music said it’s “Tune-Yards’ most sophisticated album to date.”  The band performed 'Heart Attack' and 'Look At Your Hands' on Kimmel and 'ABC 123' on Conan in January.  Ahead of this newly announced tour, Tune-Yards will join David Byrne on tour for fifteen dates on the East Coast.

U.S. Girls (aka Meg Remy)’s new album In A Poem Unlimited is a disco Trojan horse for messages of protest and character studies of women grappling with power or a lack thereof.  The New Yorker ran a multi-page critic’s essay on the themes of Remy’s work and Pitchfork gave it both Best New Music and Best New Track (for 'Rosebud') nods.  GQ said it’s “a compulsively listenable tour de force that’s one of the best pop record of 2018 so far” and after the band, who perform as an eight-piece, sold out three shows in one night at NYC’s Baby’s All Right Stereogum called their sets “a revelation.”

To celebrate the tour, I can feel you creep into my private life and In A Poem Unlimited are on sale as an LP bundle along with the U.S. Girls Mad As Hell foam finger for $34.99 HERE, available to North American customers.
