GoGo Penguin announce additional U.S. tour dates surrounding their Coachella Festival performance with shows in New York, Washington DC, Boston, Philadelphia and San Francisco. Mercury Prize Nominated UK trio’s Blue Note
Debut, Man Made Object is out now.
The New York Times raved about their recent performance at the recent Winterjazz “The members stayed locked in their grooves, three young men making music with jazz instruments, rock dynamics and circumscribed dance-music strategies. You’ll soon hear about them.” And The Wall Street Journal proclaims: “To ask whether GoGo Penguin plays jazz misses the point of the sense of adventure in contemporary popular music… ‘Man Made Object’ finds an acoustic trio performing through-compositions, pieces derived from jams, and songs that began as a series of tones and beats created on sequencing software… They are experimentalists in pursuit of superior improvisational music. The groove matters most… the trio knows what it’s doing and does it exceptionally well.”
