The Better Automatic and their Resin Records labelmates El Guapo embark on U.S. tours this month, each with a 1997 EP as a sample of its wares to hawk on the road. The two bands will meet up with Faraquet for several close-to-home shows. The first Faraquet single is out now from Mis En Scene Records, featuring the songs “Parakeet” and “Um Die Ecke,” and the band will be playing East Coast gigs over the next few months before heading back to the studio for an upcoming full-length release.
