And, I love everything that Cate does.
Including the H Hawkline album that she produced.
I am old and cranky.
Here is my music.

April 15 is Tax Day in America, but in 2016 it is also Crab Day, which is the name of Cate Le Bon's new album which is out that day on her new U.S. label, Drag City. Says Cate:
Crab Day was lovingly formed in the mouth of the Pacific Ocean, as it quietly mocked us with its magnitude. It's the sound of the 'accidentally on purpose' coming together of the right people at precisely the right time in an environment that furnished and fueled the abandonment we felt effortlessly. It's a coalition of inescapable feelings and fabricated nonsense, each propping the other up. Crab Day is an old holiday. Crab Day is a new holiday. Crab Day isn't a holiday at all.

You can check out cover art and tracklist below. There will be an accompanying film with the album, which Cate made in Berlin with Phil Collins (the visual artist and film-maker, not the one from Genesis). You can watch a trailer for the film, which has a little of Crab Day's music in it, below.

While she hasn't announced a full tour, Cate will be performing Crab Day in its entirety in NYC and LA with backing by "semi-improvisational music ensemble" BANANA which includes H.Hawkline (who's played guitar with her for years), Warpaint's Stella Mozgawa, current RHCP guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, plus Josiah Steinbrick and Stephen Black. The NYC show happens April 11 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for the NYC show will be on sale soon. All dates are listed below.

Seems a bit slight.

Hope it grows on me.

Cyrk (and Cyrk II) is still my favorite.

Heard an H. Hawkline song at the end of a You're the Worst Episode. That was a pleasant surprise. Pleasant surprises.

Good song, too: https://play.spotify.com/track/1x9Fksz9 ... edium=open

catelebonAlex Dingley, Stinson Beach // At the end of 2015 my dear friend, Alex Dingley, traveled with songs conceived in West Wales' Llansteffan to California's West Coast to record an album with Tim Presley, Samur Khouja and I. Beat The Babble will be released on Presley's label, Birth Records, in late July and Alex will open my May UK tour with songs from it. White Fence will also join us on the London date of the tour (May 28th). It all comes
full circle. Ticket info et al at catelebon.com ((More news on Alex's album to follow as well as the incredible artwork by artist/friend/wife/general badass/musician @swcidelic that was crafted during and inspired by the session and the spectacular setting which seeped into everything.))

The film isn't great, but I like the instrumental tracks. I don't know much about Phil Collins. He did a couple films a few years ago with Gruff Rhys soundtracks.

Love her first album. "Digging Song" is a fav. Hollow Trees House Hounds had me hooked.

Josiah Steinbrick and Josh Klinghoffer are the studio musicians on the two Neon Neon albums (I think Josh Klinghoffer wrote a couple of tracks). She had a couple spots on the first Neon Neon LP. H. Hawkline and Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo) always tour with her and I think they both played on the new album, along with the drummer from Warpaint. She had a really awesome drummer when I saw her last year. No idea who he was.
