Published Feb 09, 2012Late last year, Plants and Animals confirmed that they would be bringing along fellow Montreal songwriter Little Scream for the western leg of their North American tour. Now, Little Scream has announced some dates of her own in addition to unveiling a new live video.
Prior to the Plants and Animals tour, the multi-instrumentalist also known as Laurel Sprengelmeyer will play a Toronto gig with the Barr Brothers and then hit up SXSW. After that, in April, she has Quebec shows in Wakefield and Montreal, plus a gig in Kingston, ON. Check out the updated schedule below.
Scroll past that to see a live video for the song "Boatman" from last year's The Golden Record. It was recorded in a large empty room, and features Sprengelmeyer playing alongside a small choir and a number of backing musicians, including Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry on drums. Awesomely, the performance features a clavicyclette, which is a piano on a bicycle.
