BOBBY ANNOUNCE US TOUR DATES WITH THAO + MIRAH SET TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM ON PARTISAN RECORDS JUNE 21

BOBBY is pleased to announce supporting US tour dates with Thao + Mirah beginning this June in Minneapolis. The band will also be playing a headlining date on Thursday, May 5th at the Knitting Factory. BOBBY will release their self-titled debut album via Partisan Records on June 21, 2011.


BOBBY’s eponymous debut is a lush, full spectrum exploration of frequency and timbrel layering. The album’s songs range from the soft and sublime, where tender harmonies between Molly Sarle of Mountain Man and Tom Greenberg rest gently above rich textures, as in “Nap Champ” and “Dust Beam,” to the holy-fucking-shit, where the arc, shape and density of the song bloom into a cathartic climax, as in “Groggy” and “Tomb Bloom.” If there is one through line that links most of these twelve individual songs, it is the use of polyrhythm. Just like their sonic layering, BOBBY superimposes multiple meters upon one another, in which each song can be felt in different time signatures.
