NewVillager is embarking on a two-week long tour (see dates below).  On Saturday the 18th, they played a free concert in Pasadena… and packed them in.

LA Weekly’s Sam Bloch reviews the unique experience of touring the physical manifestation of NewVillager’s forthcoming album due out on IAMSOUND Records in August.

The band has taken over Human Resources in Chinatown, where they erected a one week only “Temporary Culture” installation, depicting the contents of their much anticipated debut self-titled album.  To read the full article click HERE.

The LA Times describes the installation as “more of a refugee camp for avant-garde space monsters”.  August Brown reviews the songs as “scintillant takes on voice-tweaked electronic pop doused in atypical optimism. Imagine the Knife’s demon-stalked synthetics, then imagine their exact opposite”.  To read the full article, click HERE.
