White Hills dish on tour dates, expanded-edition So You Are, favorite Super Bowl ads

You guys know about hills, right? Okay, good. And you’ve probably seen some hills at some point (probably during this ball-blasting, snowy-ass winter, at least) that are white? Great! Then your minds are in optimal condition for what I have to say about White Hills (you know, that spacey, krautrocky psych band?) releasing an expanded digital version of last year’s impeccably tautly reviewed So You Are… So You’ll Be, announcing some spring tour dates (including a stop at Austin Psych Fest), and appearing in Jim Jarmusch’s new movie Only Lovers Left Alive.

So… yeah. They are doing all three of those things! How psychedelic is that? So You Are… So You’ll Be is coming out on April 8 via Thrill Jockey as an expanded reissue. The new version features three tracks taken from Timeless Tracks for Aural Pleasure, a vinyl-only 12-inch that was previously available only through through two somethings called “mail-order” and “independent retailers.” It also has some new artwork and comes with a new “booklet of lyrics and images” but I mean, let’s face it: it’s digital, so who cares about those words I just said?

The tour dates include a few shows in London and Paris (with Jozef Van Wissem, and Jim Jarmusch’s band SQÜRL) to celebrate the release of Jarmusch’s cool new movie (coming out April 11 in the US), in which that band appears alongside the likes of Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston and John Hurt — as well as that appearance at Austin Psych Fest in early May that I kinda already told you about. Hey, speaking of which, when you think about it, aren’t white-colored hills probably the least psychedelic color that hills could possibly be? Just sayin’.
