Teebs, Sonnymoon, Time Wharp announce North American Tour
Electronic artists plot East Coast US and Canada dates, March 22 – April 6 2012
After a busy 2011, forward-thinking electronic artists Teebs, Sonnymoon, and Time Wharp
have announced a run of North American dates to kick off what looks to be an even busier
2012. Fresh off the releases of Teebs’ recent Brainfeeder LP Collections 01, Sonnymoon’s
Plug Research EP 2012, and Time Wharp’s Astro Nautico EP BLK, the artists will begin the
tour in Athens, GA with a support date for internationally-acclaimed producer Four Tet before
continuing on up the East Coast with two stops in Canada. Sonnymoon also tour in anticipation
of their forthcoming eponymous Plug Research LP, due to be released in May.

Astrobal – “Trains” (Feat. Charlie Cole )
Album : “Poetry & Science-Fiction”

This video was recently featured on MTV Iggy:
France’s Astrobal goes around Europe in 4:23. “Trains” consists of all things synthetic, soft and light – like turbocharged bubblegum pop fused with electricity. If his upcoming debut, Poetry & Science-Fiction is anything like this cut, we’ll be along for the ride.
As the name hints at, Danish band Quadron are of mixed ancestry – producer Robin Hannibal has an African-American grandfather who migrated to Denmark, while singer Coco Karshøj has an African grandfather. This cultural hodepodge is at the forefront of the group’s music, and Quadron mixes a blend of electronic balladry and alternative soul that recalls UK producer Matthew Herbert’s work with Dani Siciliano (see 2000’s Bodily Fluids), the Swedish pop group Little Dragon and the German chanteuse Clara Hill.
