Who’d have thought that, through one simple tweet, The New Yorker would tip us off to a Bay Area band’s new album stream? That’s exactly what happened last week when said tweet linked us to a very positive blurb on Tussle‘s new LP Tempest, composed by the publication’s chief musical voice, Sasha Frere-Jones. Have a listen below.

As we’d written about before, the DJ Twitch-produced Tempest was officially released on September 25th by Smalltown Supersound, and the band had already shared tracks “Yume No Muri” and “Eye Contact.” Needless to say, we’re excited to see the San Francisco quartet get some notable coverage by such a far reaching media voice, especially in such a glowing light. Cheers, guys!
