Petal to the Metal tour with Leland Sundries in the press, on the radio

The tour kicks off tonight in Somerville, MA and we’re already seeing some press hits.

Tune into Northeast Public Radio / 90.3FM WAMC (Albany, NY) or http://www.wamc.org/ tomorrow morning at 11:30am to hear Leland Sundries and Dan Kaplan songs and interview.

Here are a few other clips that ran:

Boston Phoenix: “Acoustic road warriors Leland Sundries, from NYC, and Cambridge’s Dan Kaplan are on a tour that ricochets from clubs to pizza joints to ice-cream parlors to bookstores – which seems apt for
the sprawling character of their warm-but-unpredictable sounds and indie attitude. “Whiter Shade of Pale” organ rubs against moaning country steel guitar and French sidewalk-café squeezebox on Kaplan’s EPs, all of it balanced by his lightly honeyed voice. And on the new Apothecary (L’echiquier), Leland Sundries singer/picker Nick Loss-Eaton’s the-Band-meets-Lou-Reed approach mates gnawing electric guitar and old-time acoustic six-string, banjo, and harmonica melodies with dry-witted, drawling, modern-day ennui. The two acts are playing in a duo format at Sally O’Brien’s, 335 Somerville Ave, Somerville | 8 pm | free | 617.666.3589 or www.sallyobriensbar.com.”

Hear “Balancing Act” and Leland Sundries' “Elegy” and interviews w/ both
