Listen: Time and Temperature session on Daytrotter


On her last tour, Val Glenn aka Time and Temperature stopped by Daytrotter to play a few songs, and you can now hear the results of that session. Most of the tracks are from the full-length she’s currently finishing before exiting Columbus for chillier northern climes in March. While original plans were for a double-album follow up to Cream of the Low Tide, Glenn says she’s condensed it down to a single.

So head over to Daytrotter for an album preview and sink into these silky tunes. And don’t forget to come out early on Sunday, Feb. 17 to see Time and Temperature and Connections open up for Sinkane at Double Happiness for a show we’re throwing with Benco as part of Donewaiting’s 10-year/Farewell weekend.

Video: Sinkane – “Runnin”

YouTube Preview Image (pitchfork)

Sinkane’s new video for “Runnin”off his tremendous album MARS reminds me of an early 90’s Political Rap video as it has frontman Ahmed Gallab dressed as a radical political leader and getting assassinated.

MARS is in stores now on DFA Records.
