CITAY Launches Dream Get Together Project, Tour, Releases New Mp3

We’ve all done it. Over a few drinks, or a few records, among close friends, we’ve conspired to create the ultimate “best of” list, arguing over the greatest guitarist, the sickest solo, the most epic song, or the sweetest vocals. Cliché or not, it is a conversation we’ve all had.

Well, CITAY is no different. Citay not only rounds up some of the finest musicians in San Francisco to fill their ranks, but they are also huge music fans, and great students of rock history. Thus, when it came time to pick a name for their new album they picked Dream Get Together which alludes to the concept of an ideal musical pairing, or the ultimate joining of musical forces.

We were inspired by this and decided it was time to ask some of our friends in the music community what their “dream get together” would be. The response has been wonderful with contributions from Jens Lekman, The Antlers, Suckers, Steve McBean of Black Mountain and Pink Mountaintops, Nicole Atkins, Bishop Allen, Akron/Family, Excepter, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Foreign Born, tUnE-YarDs, Parts & Labor, Welcome Wagon, and more. We’ll be unraveling one “Dream Get Together” on Citay’s website every day from here on through the release of Citay’s new album by the same name on January 26. You can stay up-to-date on this project either by checking back daily on Citay’s website, or by following Dead Oceans on Twitter. Visit either link to see the first “dream get together” from Merrill Garbus of tUnE-YarDs.

We are also happy to release “Mirror Kisses” the second MP3 from Citay’s new album. Featuring Garbus guesting on lead vocals, “Mirror Kisses” was written specifically with her elastic singing voice in mind. Listen to “Mirror Kisses” HERE. Also check out updated Citay tour dates HERE.
