We're pleased to announce that iconic underground drummer Jim White and Cretan folk musician George Xylouris, who perform together as Xylouris White, have extended their U.S. tour in support of their debut album Goats. The album, produced by Fugazi's Guy Picciotto, comes out October 14 (October 13 in the UK/EU) via Other Music Recording Co.  

In his review for The New York Times, Ben Ratliff says, "Both are extraordinary musicians. Their music starts with old Cretan forms — the brisk, dance-beat sousta and the slow, sung, expressive rizitika — and spreads outward into loose, sympathetic improvisations of uncertain length, the kind of thing that has been at the center of each man’s music for a long time. It’s intense, joyous, rugged music." The Chicago Reader describes it as ‘pulse-racing,” adding that the album "erases lines between disparate international traditions as well as between folk and rock." Full listing of tour dates are below the stream of their new single, "Pulling the Bricks."
