Taking A Break in the States

By liz

Available this Monday on Astralwerks is the sophomore album by British duo TURIN BRAKES. The second album, titled "Ether Song" has received critical acclaim with it's UK release last week as a followup to their 2001 album "The Optimist". The new US release is set to contain a limited second disc containing live tracks, video and more. The album was recorded over the summer of 2002 in California with producer Tony Hoffer (Air, Supergrass, Beck, etc) as the band's attempt to break away from the "new acoustic" sound of the moment. As a followup to the release, the boys are doing a quick jaunt through the states in late March, early April. They are in the process of planning a more extensive tour in May, so if they aren't hitting your neck of the woods now, no worries.
