Expanding upon their West and Midwest US dates in February supporting Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Xylouris White have just added a slew of shows that will find the duo performing the last two weeks of that month on the East Coast, joining Kurt Vile and the Violators on their North American tour. Featuring legendary Cretan lutenist George Xylouris and drum icon Jim White (Dirty Three, Cat Power, Will Oldham, PJ Harvey), the duo come from different parts of the world and vastly divergent musical backgrounds, but together have forged something surprising and impossible to categorize. Describing their sound as "intense, joyous and rugged," the New York Times also wrote, "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." Xylouris White's debut full-length, Goats, is out on Other Music Recording Co. The just announced dates are below, and you can view their full tour schedule (including their current European tour) listed here
