Hawnay Troof @ Death By Audio w/ Vivian Girls -- Plus New LP

Hawnay Troof's (real name: Vice Cooler?) new LP Islands of Ayle releasing September 9th on Retard Disco, has been spinning a lot around here of late. While it takes a few listens to dig in, this mish-mash of pop, dance, and rock is anchored by 'Troof's clever songwriting, lo-fi production and masterful use of samples. HT plays Death By Audio tonight with the Vivian Girls, whose new self-titled record is amazing. More to come on that album in a few days...

Two new songs are available from HT's new album. "The Gods Are Crazy" (featuring Carla Bozulich) can be heard on SPIN.com and you can listen to "Connection" on MySpace. Hawnay Troof is also offering up a remix project. This from the Press Release:

"HT is inviting fans to take part in an upcoming free download album called Remix Projection. Two different music files are now available for download from their new album Islands of Ayle on the Hawnay Troof website, giving fans a chance to redo their songs. Remix Projection will be released on Halloween. Visit HT's website for full info.

More shows have been added to Hawnay Troof's world tour that includes performances with Deerhoof, High Places, Peaches, Ssion, and a record release party in New York with Vivian Girls.

Limited edition repress remix CDR's will be available on these tours featuring remixes that Hawnay Troof has made for No Age, High Places, Yacht and more."
