San Francisco’s finest producer, Tycho, returns with another track off of his upcoming album Awake. While the track isn’t wildly different than anything off of 2011’s Dive, it is clear that Tycho definitely isn’t a solo project anymore. With the inclusion of Zac Brown (no, not that Zac Brown) on guitar/bass and Rory O’Connor on drums, Scott Hansen clearly aims for a bigger sound, though not too far removed from Explosions in the Sky or even an instrumental track from The Radio Dept. However, Tycho does not lose its trademark ambient yet uplifting sound by adding more musicians; it simply expands on the lush sound of its previous recordings.
Along with the new track, Tycho has announced many upcoming tour dates. Get excited stoners: Tycho is playing the 9:30 Club on 4/20! Check out the full list of tour dates and pre-order Awake here, which drops March 18th via Ghostly International.
