Ernest Jenning Record Co. has announced that Trummors have booked several West-coast fall tour dates with Bishop Allen behind their recent release Moorish Highway. The dates begin on October 2 at Lofi in Seattle, WA and end on October 10 at The Hi Dive in Denver, CO. The current list of Trummors tour dates can be found below. The duo is also streaming the titled track from their recent release, called “Moorish Highway.” The track is available to stream below.
Begun in 2010 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Trummors are a duo formed by songwriter Anne Cunningham and longtime New York City musician David Lerner, known best to some for his years of work with Ted Leo & The Pharmacists. The two multi-instrumentalists focus on acoustic instrumentation, incorporating harmonium, fingerstyle guitar, and close-harmony dual vocals into their warm sound. Early on in the group’s existence, Cunningham and Lerner moved from Brooklyn to the considerably calmer surroundings of Woodstock in upstate New York. They’ve since relocated to Taos, NM, about 75 miles outside of Santa Fe. Trummors’ debut album, Over and Around the Clove, was released in 2012 and reflected their recent change of scenery with its lushly earthy songs and slightly psychedelic filter on a ’70s pop sound. Moorish Highway is the follow-up to Trummors’ first LP.
Calling on a cast of talented backing players including drummer Otto Hauser (Vetiver), guitarist Kevin Barker (Joanna Newsom), bassist James Preston (Zachary Cale), and pedal steel guitaris tMarc Orleans (D. Charles Speer and the Helix), Moorish Highway was recorded at Drawing Room in Kingston, NY by Justin Rice (Bishop Allen), and mixed by Eli Walker at Isokon in Woodstock, NY.
