Tom Brosseau [by Joby Barnard]

Tom Brosseau's latest album meets fave Seattle venue for the win! Read on:

Right on the heels of Tom Brosseau's European tour with PJ Harvey and John Parish, as well as playing select dates with Mice Parade, Brosseau is announcing a U.S. tour in support of his June 23rd FatCat release, Posthumous Success. This new buoyant and well-crafted album is a huge stylistic shift away from the spare acoustic arrangements of his previous releases though Brosseau's earnest wit and captivating, vibrato-soaked voice is unchanged. These songs – and selections from Brosseau's catalog – will be fully realized live by the trio of Brosseau, album co-producer and multi-instrumentalist Ethan Rose, and vocalist/instrumentalist Shelley Short. The ensemble will bring Brosseau's live sound closer to the full-band richness captured on Posthumous Success than previous solo outings.
