Beat Connection Announces May 2013 West Coast Tour And New Odesza Remix

Electro-pop trio Beat Connection has announced a string of west coast tour dates before they embark on a two-month trip to Laos, a brief escape from the internet before tackling their second full-length with free, open minds. The Seattle-based group's fall 2012 debut LP, The Palace Garden (Tender Age/Moshi Moshi), received praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, Blackbook, The FADER, KEXP, IFC, and more, with The Seattle Weekly deeming them "Best New Band." The band's singles and remixes from the likes of Saint Etienne, The Whendays, Sun Airway, and Cellar, were at the top of the Hype Machine for weeks, and are all streaming at Soundcloud. Now, to add to these remixes, Northwest production duo Odesza has remixed the single 'Saola,' morphing the track into a pulsating, shimmery-dance tune, and will be joining them on tour.

Beat Connection is looking for the luxury of making it to work on time right now.  Shortly after the release of their full-length debut and a headlining tour of the U.S, with White Arrows and MMoths, the band went from a quartet to the present-day trio of Reed Juenger, Jarred Katz and Tom Eddy.  Leaving some of the turmoil of youthful naivety (a sliver really) behind them, they look forward with open hearts and minds to working on their next release and getting some time to be turned down. Catch them on the road before they head overseas.
