STREAM: Cate Le Bon – Mug Museum –

Cate Le Bon is set to release her anticipated full length, Mug Museum, next week on November 12th via Wichita Recordings in North America and Turnstile/The Elite Meat Supply in the rest of the world. Stream the entire album at NPR First Listen now.

Mug Museum was recorded at the recently opened Seahorse Sound studios, Los Angeles. Produced by Noah Georgeson (who is perhaps best known for his work with Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart) and Josiah Steinbrick, Mug Museum is an album that lets in the sunlight and space and relocates the West Wales lilt in Le Bon‘s voice to an equally apposite West Coast setting. In the studio Le Bon assembled a band of friends from both continents such as multi-instrumentalists Sweet Baboo and H. Hawkline and Nick Murray from White Fence.

Cate Le Bon will start a North American tour in December. Full dates below.
