Tasseomancy share ’29 Palms’ video + announce EU tour

Following excellent reviews for their just-released album Do Easy, their first for Bella Union, TASSEOMANCY have today shared a surreal video for current single 29 Palms. Of the video Tasseomancy say…

“The video for 29 Palms was created by our friend the very talented visual artist Jesi Jordan on one of her many adventures. To us, this song encapsulates so much: written for women; for artists and for any human who has ever felt themselves falling into nothingness while grasping at their own poetic string. Whether it be it a loss of self, loss of another or an attempt to create meaning in what we have all been recently reminded to be an obscene, unjust and uncertain world. This video helps push past the disappointment, the shock, and transforms the energy of apathy and apprehension into action. Jesi’s video is like a friend who calls us up on the phone and gently reminds us that life is not elsewhere but is happening right now and that’s all we’ve got. Immersed in the imaginative world of J.J. and her larger then life puppetry, 29 Palms gives us permission to be playful, to be soft, to be curious, to be real and to be constantly becoming our own stinky selves. SO how are you going to take your time? Why not seed the source of your own late blooming?”

Tasseomancy have also announced news of a European tour throughout February next year which reaches the UK for the below three dates:

Wednesday 8th February – LONDON – Oslo

Thursday 9th February – MANCHESTER – Gullivers

Friday 10th February – LEEDS – Brudenell Social Club

Critical acclaim for Do Easy, out now on Bella Union:

“Oracular chants drowse on the edge of visionary rapture, while the title track seems to have found its own cosmic portal, sounds of sea, saxophone and steel drums creating a kind of tropical Avolon, a beach party hosted by Bat For Lashes and Let’s Eat Grandma… Irresistible.” MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“Exquisite…. On their sumptuous third album they situate their voices on a pillowy bed of experimental pop, freak folk and, best of all, the sax-enhanced exotica of the title track.”

Uncut – 8/10 

“Wonderful and beguiling… After the year we’ve had, there’s time for an album that’s essentially a huge weird cuddle.” The Observer – 4 Stars ****

“Everything feels effortless on Tasseomancy’s third LP. This is a record of shades and shifting colours and a warm, graceful luxuriousness.” DIY – 4 Stars ****

“Easily the finest work of art to come out of Canada all year… Do Easy is a beautiful, big-sounding lesson in how to do witty, wise, lyrical dream-pop with the sort pf perfection that the genre deserves.” Monocle

“A languid and mystical form of baroque folk pop that alternates between seducing and confounding the listener. Missoula resembles Jonna Newsom performing at David Lynch’s Club Silencio… Hypnotic.” The Guardian 

“Extraordinary dreamlike music… If you’re a Kate Bush fan who wishes she’d bring out albums more often than once every couple of decades, you might find that Tasseomancy’s music will fill the log, aching gaps nicely.” Sunday Times

“Equally in thrall to early Kate Busy and Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti, this is dream-pop keen to tune into the otherworldly.” Q

“This is ethereal, dreamy, folk-cum-pop music: Kate Bush meets Joni Mitchell by way of the soundtrack from Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet.” Loud & Quiet – 7/10
