The Armory Show wasn’t the only big event in 1913 - it was also the year that suffragists marched on Washington to demand women’s right to vote. In light of that centennial anniversary, which is being celebrated this weekend, and the kickoff of Women’s History Month, it seemed like a good time to present you with this declaration from Nancy Spero.
FRIENDS! IT IS AN EXCITING DAY! (And not just because it’s my birthday.)
Today we not only announce the new album, ‘Nikki Nack’, coming out May 6th, but we also give you a mash-up of the songs, which we are calling the ‘Nikki Nack MegaMix’. It came to me in a dream and is a little nutso, but so is tUnE-yArDs, no? I hope you’ll do a little jig to it.
Please sign up for our mailing list at www.tune-yards.com so you can be in-the-know about our new shows announced today, festivals, releases, and all of the other amazing stuff we have in store over the next few months.
Nate’s whisking me away to the rehearsal studio — many thanks! especially for being part of a very special birthday for me. I’m proud of this one.

“There are professional thrills and there are professional thrills, but I am extra especially thrilled to report that FSG is going to be publishing John Darnielle’s novel, Wolf in White Van, this fall. John is famous for his work with the Mountain Goats, and I suspect that none of the many fans who know his lyrics and have heard his stories will be surprised by the revelation that his is a genuinely literary mind. And it’s true—Wolf in White Van emphatically proves that his imagination and voice are at least as at home on the page as they are in song.
There are many things worth singling out for praise in Wolf in White Van:the unforgettable main character, Sean Phillips, who has been isolated by a disfiguring injury since age seventeen; Trace Italian, the intricate game within the novel that Sean created and runs; the interplay of real and imagined worlds, which is both complex and heartbreaking; the structure of the storytelling—audacious, brilliant, and never anything but convincing and unreasonably suspenseful; the prose itself, which is precise and beautiful and (forgive me) lyrical.”

I preordered this WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE.
