Pacific Time: All Tiny Creatures to Tour with Bon Iver
Brad Laner Remixes “An Iris”

MP3: All Tiny Creatures “An Iris” (featuring Justin Vernon)
Sometimes the best thing about walking forward is that resting and risky moment when you stop to look back at all the ground you’ve covered. Find the highest point and wait for the sun to hit its favorite angle. Take in as much as the width of your eyes will give you. Edit a mountain range. Make up a name for that distant field. Pretend you can see all your friends at their desks on the east coast. Pretend you could walk wherever you wanted in a day. This the shuffling slow dance before you turn around and know you are at the edge of the continent, both the one under your feet and the one you’ve probably built inside yourself by now. This is my west coast.
Next week, our solar system is tumbling into a new, temporary formation out here. All Tiny Creatures, the endlessly powerful band behind Harbors (and so much to come), is joining deep and radiating friends Bon Iver in Nevada and California, as well as select dates in between those shows (linking them up with the likes of fellow transcenders Pontiak and Damien Jurado). This will be very good. To celebrate, and to tie together our geography, we’re sharing Brad Laner’s remix of All Tiny Creatures’ “An Iris”. Brad is his own west coast sunrise. I think he could probably cause geomagnetic reversal with a single strum bounced across the grass of Granada Hills.
