Published Jan 29, 2010Like so many current artists, Brooklyn-based electro duo Javelin rose to prominence before releasing an actual album. Besides their healthy amount of blog buzz and self-released cassettes, the sound team dropped two twelve-inches for Thrill Jockey's limited record series last year. Unlike so many of their peers, however, Javelin will soon be following up the hype with a full-length album.
Titled No Mas, the band's debut long-player is a 15-track affair, due out this spring. Some samples of the album can be heard on Javelin's MySpace page here. The album is getting released on April 20 via Luaka Bop, and based on the tripped out album artwork (see above), we're guessing that's no mere coincidence.
Besides No Mas, Javelin have also unleashed a string of upcoming tour dates. They'll be joining Yeasayer for a UK tour, and will follow that up with a North American jaunt supporting These Are Powers. Those dates include Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal.
