Alec Ounsworth Takes Flashy Python On The Road

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ALEC OUNSWORTH TAKES FLASHY PYTHON ON THE ROAD

ANNOUNCES DATES WITH COLD WAR KIDS

Anti-Records is proud to announce tour dates for Alec Ounsworth, whose new album, Mo Beauty, was just released. Starting with four shows opening for Cold War Kids, Flashy Python, featuring Ounsworth, Matt Sutton, Peter Modavis, Brian Ashby and Jonas Oesterle, will be playing songs from Mo Beauty, Flashy Python's debut Skin and Bones and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's catalogue. The band gave their premiere performance at this year's CMJ Marathon.

Mo Beauty was recorded deep in the heart of musical New Orleans with an ensemble of local heavyweights including George Porter Jr. of the Meters and drummer Stanton Moore of Galactic, and was guided by veteran producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Replacements). The album is a stunning union of powerful rhythms and imaginative arrangements in the service of evocative literary songwriting.

Praise for Alec Ounsworth's Mo Beauty has been strong:

"This sound is voluptuous and muscular, and it suits him well."- Pitchfork

"The Sharpest arrangements and best songwriting of his short career: Almost every tune on Mo Beauty equals or betters those on CYHSY's lauded 2005 debut." - Spin

"Ounsworth has crafted an album that transitions seamlessly from ballads to more frenetic tracks with a straightforward sound that lets the songwriting and hooks resonate without being over-produced." - Filter

"Strikingly compelling" - Relix

The dates supporting Cold War Kids are below. Flashy Python will be spending most of 2010 on the road. More shows will be announced soon.
