Scientists theorize that the world is fancier now than the world has ever been before. I’m inclined to believe it. Only the fancy will survive, while the un-fancy will have their flesh picked off their bones, albeit very delicately. These are the times for the fancy people, the fancy people like Ashley Eriksson of Olympia’s LAKE. Ashley “Fancy” Eriksson is going on tour with fellow Washingtonians Mount Eerie, who also happen to be very, very, very fancy. Really, just the fanciest. The tour will be very Oregon- and California-centric, because all the dates are in Oregon and California. Afterwards, Mount Eerie will be heading to Europe, arguably the fanciest continent.
While I’ve got your ear, I’d like to mention one more thing to you, the possibly fancy. Eriksson has a new solo record titled Colours coming out July 16 through K Records. If you’d like to hear a preview of some of the record’s songs, go to one of her aforementioned shows with Mount Eerie. That is, of course, if you’re fancy enough. If you’re not, well, pity.
