Windy & Carl dawned on the radar for many with last year’s subdued masterpiece Songs For The Broken Hearted, but what probably came as a surprise to many first-time listeners — myself included — was that this mellow, shoegaze duo already had a pretty impressive library of released material under their belt.
Their songs are filled with soft drones and tonal, airy vocals. To call it calming or relaxing would be an understatement, but it’s anything but sleepy. While Songs For The Broken Hearted hit last year via Kranky Records (of Deerhunter fame), you can catch this dynamic artist on the road this month.
Here are the dates for the PNW plus San Francisco:
05.23: Sunset Tavern in Seattle
05.24: Holocene in Portland
05.27: Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco
