It’s been two West Coast tours ago and a year of recording since we’ve heard any new music from Old You, but that’ll change next week when Young-Mi Feldsott and company release their new collection of dark-edged psychedelic jazz, Whale Sounds. The new disc marks the band’s first professional recording and follow-up to 2012’s So Steady EP.
“This album is really a token of gratitude for our fans, friends, and family,” explains Old You singer Young-Mi Feldsott. “We couldn’t have imagined this two years ago when we were practicing in my garage.”
Once Whale Sounds is out, Feldsott and her Old You bandmates — John Pope (drums), Paul San Luis (bass), and Caleb Bodtorf (guitar) — will be hitting the road to promote their new LP. “The cool thing is that no matter where we go or who we play to, there’s something for everyone,” says Feldsott. “If we’ve done our job right, by the end of the show your hair will stand on its ends.”
Old You’s album release party will take place Fri. Dec. 13 at the Pour House. Tickets are $8, and the show starts at 9 p.m.
