Out today is William Tyler’s Lost Colony, the follow-up EP to his critically acclaimed 2013 release Impossible Truth. The limited-edition 12-inch features the new song “Whole New Dude,” a full-band reworking of “We Can’t Go Home Again” from Impossible Truth, and “Karussell,” a cover of a Michael Rother (Neu!) song.
Rolling Stone included William Tyler in its April edition of “10 New Artists You Need to Know,” writing that “‘Whole New Dude’ ambles through 5/4 rhythms, steel guitar whines, Can-style beats, and one sunshine-y guitar solo within 13 gorgeous minutes.”
Listen & share “Whole New Dude” on SoundCloud now.
Order the limited-edition Lost Colony 12-inch in the Merge store. The EP is also available for purchase at iTunes, Amazon, and to stream at Spotify and Rdio.
