Some news in advance of the Transcendentalists show at Cork Opera House on May 19th (also The Sugar Club in Dublin the following night).
Fat Cat/130701 are releasing a special EP to commemorate the tour, featuring 2 tracks each by Johann Johannsson, Dustin O’Halloran & Hauschka. This is new/reworked material and is being premiered exclusively on the Electronic Beats zine today.
