Re: ALTO! LP / West Coast tour in July

We made some tapes to sell on this tour we just did. 60-minute. 3 long-form ambient pieces involving field recordings, an old Lowery organ with a Leslie speaker, and such like that. Doesn't really sound much like the LP at all.

We have some of these tapes left for sale and/or download. They all have unique artwork both on the jackets and on the tapes themselves.

Halfway through the last track, this is shaping up to be to my April what Brian's record was to my March. Very cool and less jammy / more engaging than the first one. Looking forward to the physical version.

Sorry, L.A. dudes.


We did this is less than two days, getting paid zip!

But paying for gas can suck. Hope you guys can get down to LA eventually.

Thanks Prowler!

FYI - one of the dudes in ALTO! (not me) is married to a beautiful Romanian woman that he met in Bucharest.

Love the new album. I think I might like it as much as the first one, which is saying something.

So jealous of everyone seeing them at the West Coast PRF BBQ.

I know I'm not the only one who was completely mesmerized, quite literally, by Alto! at the West Coast BBQ. One of the best sets I've seen/heard in a very long time. Listened to both albums at least three times piece today. One of the best releases of 2014 for sure.

Blew me away. I love the recordings, and it was great to see how they pull it off live. Hell of a band you have there, Angus Jung.

What a great fucking show that was. I'll be diving head first into Alto's catalog. Fucking great.

ALTO! is looking for a late spring/summer show in Seattle and environs. Get in touch via PM if you are up there and looking to put a bill together.

The new record is fucking great!

The other night my brother and I went to one of the 24 hour Vons grocery stores around our pad to get some beer and food to cook with that night. We sat in the parking lot listening to the album at full volume until it was over before we realized we'd been sitting in the Vons parking lot tripped out.

Awesome album. Cheers Angus!
