It’s not everyday a band can switch from lo-fi noise to melancholic blues, but Hartford, Connecticut-based duo Magik Markers pulls it off without slipping into White Stripes territory or art-rock obscurity. Not only does BOSS find the band at its most melodic and dynamic, but the album was also produced by Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo. Instead of relying on improvised lyrics and waves of feedback, this headlining tour will see Elisa Ambrogio and Pete Nolan sharing their sensitive sides at a series of diverse venues from New York’s Knitting Factory to L.A.’s Spaceland. Be prepared for a serious jaw dropping.

BOSS is out now on Ecstatic Peace.
