Flock Of Dimes announces tour with Sylvan Esso + new animated vid

FLOCK OF DIMES (JENN WASNER) CONFIRMS

+NEW "EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING TODAY"


Flock Of Dimes, aka Jenn Wasner (one half of Wye Oak), will hit the road opening for Sylvan Esso this August-- all dates below and here.  Since releasing her debut solo album last fall, If You See Me, Say Yes, Jenn has kept busy. She just appeared in Google's new ad honoring Prince alongside Sampha, Brandi Carlile and Deer Tick's John McCauley. And last month she made a cameo in LA to make it weird on Pete Holmes' Nerdist podcast and also recorded demos for a new project with Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint) and Katie Harkin (Sleater-Kinney)-- more details on that soon!

Today Jenn also shares a new animated video for radiant album track "Everything Is Happening Today" and the story behind releasing it via Medium.  While deciding how to rollout the video last fall (made by the creative collective Endless Endless), Jenn struggled with how to reconcile its joyful tone with the palpable unease that permeated her daily life post-election (and that of many people). Read an excerpt of her thought process below and let the video cheer you up via AV Club.

"I can't lie-- I've spent a lot of time worrying that I shouldn't share this video, for fear that the vision of unabashed joy that it presents has become irrelevant, almost inappropriate. In the end, I decided that I would feel much worse if I didn't. In spite of this swell of fear and hate that has permeated our lives, I think it's important to continue to show ourselves to the world, to bring our ideas to life and allow ourselves to be vulnerable."
