the Weekender ::: New singles from the Mary Onettes & Jamie Lidell + Divine Fits on Letterman + tour dates

Picture 575

We caught a glimpse of what’s to come from Jamie Lidell last week, and now we have a single after a couple of days. The first taste comes across as if Lidell spent time in the studio with Skrillex. The s/t album will be released February 2013 via Warp Records.

In other new album news, the Mary Onettes have announced the release of their forthcoming album, “Hit the Waves,” via Labrador Records March 2013. The album is said to have been influences ranging from Vangelis to Whitney Houston. A hodgepodge of goodness if you will. Listen to the first single, “Evil Coast,” that visits straddles that “yacht rock” territory in comfortable fashion.

Lastly, the supergroup comprised of Britt Daniels (Spoon) and Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs) will be trekking across Colorado on a three date tour hitting Aspen, Vail and Denver which can only mean ski season is in full effect. The guys played “Letterman” Friday night proving that you can never have TOO much star power on one stage.
