Stream: Tonstartssbandht, "Alright"

photographer Sam Shea

The last time we made contact with the Tonstartssbandht brothers, they were scribbling away furiously with a pencil at paper at a Williamsburg cafe, kindly helping us to construct the Grimes-centric, Montreal music scene family tree that we included in FADER #84 this past winter. This month, Andy and Edwin White are touring Russia and Ukraine in support of fellow Montrealer Dirty Beaches, and they just leaked a track from a limited split tape they have coming out with him on April 17th via St. Petersburg imprint Spacebridge. Tonstartssbandht are notorious for always changing up their sound, but "Alright" mines the sort of acid-soaked, Hillybilly terrain where they're at their most ecstatic. At least somebody's been listening to the Dead lately. Tourdates below. (via Dummy)
