sweat with us this summer

The revised and expanded edition of Palo Santo was released last month on CD and what feels like 2 pounds of vinyl. If you’d like to sample some songs from the new version (and compare them to the original demos), go here.

Also, Howard’s flickr page has some lovely / funny photos from the Xiu Xiu / Casiotone tour. Howard wields a mean Holga.

Summer Tour ’07

For those of you on the left coast who’ve missed us for a while: we are finally heading your way again in June.

We’ll be joined by our friends Jamie Stewart (of Xiu Xiu) and Minus Story (whose t-shirt Jonathan has worn for the last two years without a break) on many of these dates (see the shows page for specifics).

Also, we’re playing a special outdoor show at Castle Clinton in New York on July 5th. This event is free, but tickets are required – more info on the River to River festival web site. At the moment, it reads:

“Tickets are free, and will be distributed, two per person, outside Castle Clinton on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 5pm on the day of the show.”
