Garcia Peoples have announced their new album Dodging Dues will be out January 14th. They’re sharing three tracks from it today: “Cold Dice”, “Tough Freaks” and “Stray Cats”. You can listen here and pre-order at Bandcamp:


Garcia Peoples formed in Rutherford, New Jersey by high school friends Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki. Frequent performances in New York City helped build their reputation and sharpen their powerhouse live show, drawing equally from the ethos of Pavement and various “jam” bands (be it The Allmans or Amon Düül). Four albums followed on the Beyond Beyond is Beyond label, most recently Nightcap at Wit’s End (2020) with David Fricke-penned liner notes in which he mused “I am tempted to say this is the bands best record, except Garcia Peoples are too restless to settle for plateaus.” And to that point a new peak emerges with Dodging Dues – languid and dreamy one moment, surging and intense the next. It’s comprised of seven songs recorded at Strange Weather in Brooklyn with Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Superwolves, Endless Boogie) producing. Recording sessions bookended 2020.

The band resumed touring this summer with a residency at The Sultan Room in Brooklyn (to which they’ll return this month) and festival bookings at Treefort, Hopscotch and the ill-fated Bonnaroo. They’ll be on the road until the end of the year:
