Peaking Lights to tour the UK in June; Peking Lights content with remaining obscure in China

It’s time for some blunt commentary on the relative enjoyability of nature’s seasons. Naturally (no pun intended), this will depend almost entirely on where you’re located in the world, but for a good portion of us, I don’t think it would be an exercise in hyperbole to say that spring is nothing more than Mother Nature flaunting her cleavage, but ultimately denying us the goods until a later date. Does anybody have any idea when spring begins and ends? Smart-asses: pretend that you don’t for a second; there’s barely anything distinguishable about the season. Flowers suck. Many of us are just twiddling our thumbs until summer gets here.

All of this gives me an excuse to temporarily overlook any important events happening in the next few months and report on the fact that Wisconsin psychedelic duo Peaking Lights will be touring the UK and making one stop over in Ireland in June. By that time, it will have been roughly a year and four months since the release of 936 (TMT Review; #14 on our year-end list), so all you European island-dwellers can reasonably expect either a smidgen or a healthy dosage of unreleased/new material, in addition to all those dubby tunes featured on their most recent album. It’s all quite fitting; have you ever tried to discuss “irie riddims” while wearing a winter coat? Talk about awkward…
