4/7: Windy & Carl Tour with Benoit Pioulard

Windy & Carl, Benoit Pioulard, Lambs Laughter Tour 2009

I am very excited to tell you that Windy & Carl are touring this year and even more excited that Thomas Meluch of Benoit Pioulard is joining them. Brainwashed has the info on the tour, which begins on the 22nd of April in London, Ontario and proceeds down the east coast for the majority of the tour. However, if you don’t like to click links, I’ve provided the tour dates and info below. Instead of trying to write a whole lot about one of my favorite bands, I suggest you download the show and listen to the second half with extra care. Windy & Carl are amazingly diverse and can do everything from pure ambient drone to fuzzed out, dreamy pop that puts most popular shoegaze bands to shame.

Stop reading, download the show. Go see Windy & Carl with Benoit Pioulard.

More updates coming, soon!
