One of San Francisco's hardest working bands, progressive noise ambassadors Tartufi, have just hit the midpoint of their "35 show/40 day" Spring Tour. While visiting in New York, we had the opportunity to catch the road warriors in fine form at the Delancey as they received a seemingly hometown reception for their entrancing set of experimental pop mayhem.

Leaving town on March 28, the dynamic duo kicked the party off in Reno, and has since made its way through an Atlas-load of states including Utah, Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and New York. The two will play a smattering of shows in North Carolina and the Southeast while heading back via Texas to the motherland.

Members Lynne Angel and Brian Gorman still seemed quite fresh-faced and tighter ever and they played musical chairs on stage with loops-a-plenty vocal harmonies, bass, guitar and gut pounding drums through renditions of their latest release, "Us Upon Buildings Upon Us", which you can purchase here or listen to on their myspace. Almost sold out of t-shirts and a little van-weary, the two reported an unusually strong response from the kids in New Hampshire among other tidbits of road wisdom.

Back in January, we had the pleasure of interviewing these two amazingly talented and fun musicians. Check out the full interview here in Episode 49.
