Via Pitchfork:

Torres has performed a new song called “New Skin” for Philadelphia non-profit Weathervane Music’s Shaking Through web series. (A different version will appear on the follow-up to her 2013 self-titled debut). For the recording, she was backed by Sharon Van Etten, Adam Granduciel and Dave Hartley of The War on Drugs, and Chris Wilson of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists.

Misra recently released the following Torres title:

ARTIST: TORRES b/w MOTEL BEDS with KELLEY DEAL
TITLE: “The Harshest Light” b/w “Tropics of the Sand”
RELEASE DATE: Record Store Day 2014 (April 19)
NOTE: There may be a few left, but they were limited to 1,000 copies

Misra will also be releasing Torres’ phenomenal S/T debut on cassette for Cassette Store Day 2014. It sounds so good on tape. My Stars!

Listen to Motel Beds with Kelley Deal “Tropics of the Sand” via Stereogum. Sister, that’s a good 7″ if you can rope one. Thanks for your support! XO
