Published Apr 28, 2015Apollo Ghosts and COOL TV honcho Adrian Teacher has teamed up with a backing band called the Subs to ready his Sorta Hafta EP. After sharing the "Old Graffiti" video last week from the Vancouver songwriter, we sorta hafta inform you that you can stream the full release now via Exclaim!
The five-song release clocks in at a breezy 11 minutes, wherein Teacher dances between folk, psych and pop influences without losing his own distinct sound. In addition to the Subs, the release features appearances from Julie Doiron and K Records hero Calvin Johnson, the latter of which also produced the record at his iconic Dub Narcotic Studios.
Sorta Hafta will arrive on May 5 as a vinyl and digital release, but you can stream the whole thing here now.
In addition, Teacher and the Subs will head out on a Canadian tour in support of the release. All of the dates are available below.
