Alexi Murdoch Announces Tour

One of my all time favorite singer/song writers, Alexi Murdoch, has recently announced that he'll be on tour in the US this spring. Even more exciting, he will be swinging through my home state of Vermont. Murdoch, for those of you who don't know him, came around in 2003 with his acclaimed EP Four Songs, and followed it up in 2006 with the brilliant Time Without Consequence. A number of his songs have been used on television shows, giving him wide appeal. An announcement on his myspace page noted that the song Through the Dark, which was heard in the song Gone Baby Gone and the television show House, MD, was a new song, which has me extremely hopeful that there will be a new album coming from him shortly.

Needless to say, I'm excited. There's a short list of artists that are an absolute priority should they come my area, and he's right at the top of it, along with similar artists such as Bon Iver and Iron & Wine.

In the meantime, here's his tour schedule.
