The Olivia Tremor Control dabble in some existential pondering on new single "The Game You Play Is in Your Head, Parts 1, 2, & 3"

The Beatles-meets-Lumpy-Gravy sound of Olivia Tremor Control has been slowly seeping back into the minds and hearts of devoted fans this year, as the band announced a string of live dates after several years of hiatus (including an appearance at All Tomorrow’s Parties), a new track titled “North Term Reality,” the prospect of reissued albums on Chunklet Industries, and the news of a new album set to be released sometime next year.

Naturally, we at Tiny Mix Tapes have been feverishly squirming in our urine-soaked britches in excitement and anticipation for new material from this legendary Elephant 6 act (and they’re not the only legendary group that’s been showing recent activity). Well, it seems as if our pants are going to perpetually get wetter, seeing as the band released another new track (supposedly from the upcoming album) titled “The Game You Play Is in Your Head, Parts 1, 2, & 3.” The song is available as a single via Cloud Recordings, but you can stream the track and read an interview with the band at NPR. You should also check out the following fall tourdates below and see if the band is stopping near your city (and if not, suck it up and travel as far as you need to see these guys. Your children’s trust fund be damned!).
