My heart skipped a beat this morning when I came across news of British duo Let’s Eat Grandma’s North American tour this fall. The duo has been one of our favorite rising experimental/electro pop projects for the past couple of years, and the buzz surrounding their music has grown manifold with each new release they’ve put forth. Plus, as we’ve mentioned many a time before, we’re always tickled by their quirky name, too. The tour will bring them to Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco on September 3rd. I already have a dedicated browser tab open and ready for me to grab hold of my ticket when the tour goes on sale this Friday. On top of this exciting news comes even more joy as Let’s Eat Grandma teams up with SOPHIE and The Horrors’ Faris Badwan on their latest song and the third single from their sophomore album I’m All Ears, arriving this June. It’s Not Just Me is a crisp crackling, synth wavy charmer that weds Grimes’ perky whimsicality with the sweet tartness of Kero Kero Bonito. It pulses and prances both lightly and nimbly, all the while inundating us with ambrosial nostalgia. It’s Not Just Me arrives with a music video directed by Balan Evans. Pre-order new album I’m All Ears, here. Learn more about Let’s Eat Grandma’s forthcoming tour on their website, here.

Van Damsel envelopes us in a warm glow with new single Sophia, which came along with the announcement that the Canadian indie pop band will be releasing a debut self titled full length on February 19th. Sophia is the synth popping lead single, a glistening lush treat with sparkling guitars plus, and I quote, “more hooks than an attic in Hellraiser”. Nice one, I like that. Sophia is likely the most uplifting and ebullient pop song I’ve encountered today. I’ll look forward to Van Damsel to single handedly deliver us the snow melting joys of Spring when their album arrives next year.
