The Infinity Cat Recordings folks are finishing out the year with some great news for their Cassette Series.  The next cassette in the series is going to be from no other than Milwaukee psych-poppers, Jaill!  Check out the first single from the cassette that will be out on January 8!

Fresh off the heels of last June’s Brain Cream (Burger Records), Jaill is back with Wherever It Be, the latest installment in the Infinity Cat Cassette Series.

Written, performed, and recorded by frontman Vincent Kircher in the spare bedroom and basement of his Milwaukee home (aka Vinnie’s House of Doom), Wherever It Be is a more playful effort that combines Jaill’s classic psych-pop vibe with glam-rock-tinged guitar and surf-pop vocals. It’s an undeniably whimsical album, dealing with topics like hermit crabs, body odors, and surfing oceans in outer space. Songs are submerged in descending harmonies and delayed out arpeggiators, beaming with a sense of positivity in the face of a world that’s totally absurd.

Milwaukee trio Jaill, whose most recent LP was released on the Sub Pop label, have announced that they’ll play some East Coast shows. Here are the dates:

04/03/2013 Pittsburgh, PA The Smiling Moose
04/04/2013 Brooklyn, NY Knitting Factory – Brooklyn
04/05/2013 Philadelphia, PA Kung Fu Necktie
04/06/2013 Harrisonburg, VA Macrock Festival
04/07/2013 Columbus, OH The Treebar
05/04/2013 Milwaukee, WI The Hotel Foster
