Line & Circle share "Mine is Mine", tour (2014)

Pitchfork has shared “Mine is Mine”, the latest single from Los Angeles based Line & Circle.  The band will be hitting the road with Typhoon next month on their way to SXSW. Tour dates below.
Los Angeles-based Line & Circle arrived on the national scene in 2012 after releasing its debut 7-inch single “Roman Ruins” / “Carelessness” on White Iris Records. The single received acclaim from Rolling Stone, NPR Music, KEXP, and Stereogum, among others, topping several critics’ Best Song of The Year polls on both sides of the Atlantic. The band completed two U.S. tours in support of the single, one with White Iris labelmates Electric Guest and another with RNDM, featuring Jeff Ament from Pearl Jam and Joseph Arthur. The former featured appearances at CMJ Music Marathon in New York City, including a live radio broadcast for KEXP.
Line & Circle was born of the collaboration between Brian J. Cohen and Brian Egan – natives of Akron and Dayton, Ohio, respectively – who met in college before moving from the Midwest to Los Angeles. Last spring, along with guitarist Eric Neujahr, drummer Nick Cisik, and bassist Jon Engelhard, they returned to the studio with White Iris’ Lewis Pesacov to begin recording new material developed during the band’s two recent tours. There, with nods to early 4AD dream pop and chiming I.R.S. Records-era guitar rock, the group pared the songs to their essence – simple melodic phrases and hooky ostinatos that subvert the weightier themes of the lyrics.
Recorded live in Los Angeles by Pesacov and mixed in Philadelphia by Jonathan Low and Brian McTear (The National, The War On Drugs), “Mine Is Mine” is the first song to emerge from these sessions. Rhythmically urgent, melodically rich, and emotionally restless, the track delivers on the promise of the band’s debut single and offers a tantalizing glimpse of recordings yet to be released.
