Molly Nilsson Is Back On US Soil For Her “Travels” Tour With Alligator Indian in the Southeast US!


Molly Nilsson brings her lovely songs to a room near you soon [you should hope]

Wow, almost a year to the day that I was last beguiled by the unassuming but winning synthpop of Molly Nilsson, she is once again in my town for a concert. This time on my 50th birthday, so what more could I ask for? Her new album, “Travels,” was released in July and I’ll definitely buy a copy from her merch table since there’s nothing more karmically good than buying merch from an artist who “jams econo” on their tour. And it can’t be too “econo” to travel the world like she does. I’m really looking forward to this show since the last one was so lovely. Not familiar with Molly Nillson’s darkly enchanting pop? Then by all means partake now!

That alone would get me out of the house on a work night, but how about a tag-team Southeast Tour with Asheville’s finest purveyors of Po-Mo Post-Punk, Alligator Indian? They have a new EP out now, “More Songs About Animals and TV” on Bleeding Gold Records and this mini-tour heralds its release. AI + MN dates in monksblood red. Why not listen to it here? Then go see them live; they completely sate my monastic thirst for post-punk pop that’s inventive and left-leaning yet melodic.

  1. YE GODS! How did I not know about Molly Nilsson!! I feel like I just discovered a vitamin shortage in my bloodstream that must be corrected immediately!

    As for Alligator Indian: yes, sorry I won’t be able to see them live, but very nice stuff!

      chasinvictoria – While you will miss Molly Nilsson, who sez’ we might not swing an Alligator Indian show in town while you’re here. My gawd, what we wouldn’t have done with these guys 30 years ago in Boreblando!! Obviously, they’ve been boning up on their Lene Lovich records!
