The Stepkids Kick Off Tour with The Horrors Tonight

The Stepkids kick off their fall tour tonight with the Horrors at Venue in Vancouver, BC. The Connecticut trio (Tim Walsh, Jeff Gitelman and Dan Edinberg) will be touring in support of their debut self-titled album out September 27 via Stones Throw Records. The Stepkids live show mixes mix their music–futuristic electro soul soaring harmonies–with psychedelic visuals. Trust us, you DO NOT want to miss seeing them play live.

The Stepkids released new single “Legend In My Own Mind” last month. The track, which was previously included on Pitchfork’s Forkcast, can be downloaded here. The group’s debut album was produced, engineered and recorded by the band on a reel-to-reel. Their groove is a fusion of punk and jazz, West African and 1960s folk, neo and classic soul, classic funk and 20th century classical and has received praise from the likes of Details, NPR, Pitchfork, Village Voice and more.

Check out some of the group’s music below and check out their upcoming U.S. tour dates. The band will also tour the UK with The Horrors later this fall.
