One of CMJ‘s true breakouts, Hundred Waters has launched a pre-order for a new two song 7″ coming soon on Small Plates/OWSLA. The release consists two radical new arrangements of songs from the band’s eponymous debut full length and was recorded in a single day session at Stadium Red Studios in Harlem in May of 2012. “Caverns” was rework for a piano and vocals performance by Nicole Miglis, the recording of which was documented by YoursTru.ly (video link above). The new version of “Visitor” is decidedly more intimate than its album counterpart, boasting a new arrangement for guitar, bass, flute, trumpet, trombone, alto sax, clarinet, drums, and vocals. The group is signed to Skrillex‘s OWSLA label.

The 7″ announcement arrives just ahead of a run of tour dates with Freelance Whales, which kicks off in Hoboken, NJ on January 15 before winding its along the East Coast and Midwest for conclusion February 1 in Wilmington, Delaware. Fresh off a Fall tour with Julia Holter, their first European tour, and the veritable landslide of critical acclaim following their performances at CMJ Music Marathon (including rave reviews from New York Times, NPR and Pitchfork), Hundred Waters are continuing to hone their exceptional live performances as the road stretches ahead of them. More tour announcements will be forthcoming, you can see the current ones listed below.

Update (2.4.13): Now they¬†been confirmed as support on US and UK legs of the upcoming Alt-J tour, an epic 10 week trek that will bring the group to SXSW, along with every other imaginable corner of the two territories. The announcement arrives concurrent with the debut of the visually stunning and wildly imaginative music video by Florida’s Borscht Corp for album track “Boreal”. The band’s unique convergence of warm, glistening electronics, virtuosic instrumental prowess, and lush vocal harmonies earned unanimous praise following their performances at CMJ Music Marathon, proving they are among the most captivating and original live acts on the touring circuit.
