Snail Mail – Postcard Contest, New Fall ’18 Dates

Snail Mail’s debut LP Lush is out in the world this Friday, and the band begins touring today with two dates supporting Belle & Sebastian before playing a sold-out release show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday.

Beginning this week, Snail Mail will be carrying postcards on the road, free for you to grab at your local show. Fill it out with your own message or drawing, send it to the address listed on the postcard, and if Lindsey chooses your card, you’ll win a box of her favorite records from the Matador warehouse. If you won’t be at an upcoming Snail Mail show (I don’t know what kind of tragedy would cause this to happen) but would still like to participate in the contest, the postcards will be included in Lush pre-orders and available at local indie retail stores. Lindsey will pick the winner on July 4th.

Pre-order Lush here.

VIDEO: Julien Baker – Tiny Desk Concert + New U.S. Tour Dates

Julien Baker first performed at NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert in early 2016, several months after the release of her debut album Sprained Ankle. Today she becomes one of the few artists to perform at Tiny Desk for a second time. Joined by her touring violinist Camille Faulkner, Baker performed three tracks from her sophomore LP Turn Out The Lights, “Appointments,” “Hurt Less,” and “Even.” This session comes on the heels of Julien’s late night debut, performing “Turn Out The Lights” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Baker has also announced her first U.S. tour dates of 2018 today, through the Midwest and Northeast this spring after traveling to Europe in March with Belle & Sebastian. Tickets for the new dates are on sale this Friday, January 12th at 10am EST.
