Received this in my mail from Jensen Sportag who have KINDLY allowed me to share this with all you lovely people, as well as some cool tracks for ya, music for a Summer evening after the rain as the party gets going, on a beach...smooth:
Just wanted to reach out today and tap your shoulder while I'm wearing my Jensen Sportag gloves. Oh these? Jensen Sportag is the capricious little electro-pop band made by me, Austin Wilkinson, and my friend Elvis Craig. We're from Nashville, our first EP is called Sergio and it's out on December 2nd.
Imagine Prince, Aphex Twin, and Wesley Willis all wantin ya, sayin 'Baby I'm yours...' and such. Well, here are some other items of note. Paw Tracks is down - Ariel Pink contributed vocals and cover art to our self-titled 2007 debut, and new-signing Dent May recently booked us for a private show at his Mississippi ranch and invited a collaboration. I think we'll do it. We also have a great fan in Domino Records' Max Tundra who recently name-checked Jensen in an Earplug interview, included us in his forthcoming remix LP, and asked us to open on his forthcoming tour.
But before the Tundra dates, we're doing some shows with the always rockin Ghostland Observatory in Atlanta and Nashville. We've already played with LCD Soundsystem, Junior Boys, Adult., Girl Talk, and many more. We can honestly say we have nothing against them. Dates, EP tracklist, album ZIP, photos, artwork, and a pair of MP3s are below. Whew. Please tap us back if you need anything.
