Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps hits the road.
With their sophomore release Little Wind on the horizon, Minneapolis’ Caroline Smith & the Good Night Sleeps is planning out dates across the U.S. for the Fall, beginning with a CD release show at First Avenue in Minneapolis on September 16th. The group are already warriors of the road, having completed seven national tours and constant circuit through the Midwest, and are excited to bring their newest tunes to the stage.
At their shows throughout the Fall, be prepared to be enchanted by Caroline Smith’s alto timbre, quivering through vibrato, classic, and controlled with the presence of Billie Holiday, Leslie Feist, and Joanna Newsom. She'll be backed by "the Good Night Sleeps" who, along with Smith, build on gentle folk instrumentation to greater nuances of musical arrangement and soundscape rooted in modern indie rock, all characterized by unforgettable and endearing pop melodies.
The band's newest LP, Little Wind, is set to be released on September 20th via United Interests. Little Wind was recorded at the Terrarium in Minneapolis with Jason Orris (Polara, Happy Apple, Haley Bonar) and was mixed by Tom Herbers (Low, Dark Dark Dark, Andrew Bird).
