Bent Knee - Land Animal (2016-2017)

New album from Bent Knee Land Animal drops on June 23rd. Preorder link below.

They signed with Inside Out Music, etc (they were on Cuneiform before).

Pretty excited for this one as Say So was in my top 10 from last year. The 1st single/title track video is below and quite good. Quirky, avant-garde, yet melodic and harmonic. Jazzy and percussive. The way they blend these elements together on the new track as well as their previous work is why I'm a fan and enjoying them more with time. 

I posted the tour dates with Thank You Scientist below. Too bad there's no Minnesota date, but hopefully on the next leg.
