Deep within the Speck Mountain landscape is something innately recognizable––maybe it calls to mind a dozy record player hazing over ’60s soul, a dream, a scrap of a memory cloaked in that fuzzy atmosphere. By their own definition, “ambient soul” seems the most apt — & this is on full display on their recent album Badwater, which was released in January via Carrot Top Records. They recently announced their Spring tour dates, & today have expanded on those dates with a more flushed out list & with more cities now on the docket. The band recently hit the studio to record the stunning new track “Lies,” which they’re giving away today.
