Julian Koster's project The Music Tapes are taking a wild ride this Summer on a tour called the Traveling Imaginary. It's a tour to show off some of the new music on the upcoming album Mary’s Voice, which is out on July 1st on Merge Records. It's meant to be a circus-like escape with "songs, stories, games, movies, magic,  & amusements." Check out the video below for more information on the gig, and this is how Merge Records is describing the experience:

"As soon as audiences walk through the door, they will be greeted with The Music Tapes’ surreal, carnival-esque games before entering the tent for a dreamlike show that includes songs from the band’s newest album Mary’s Voice which Pitchfork described as “a grand, genre-straddling vision in sound.” The evening’s entertainment also antique 16mm cartoons, virtuoso Klezmer music performed on the singing saw, Julian Koster’s unique narratives about dehydrated European cities and half-imagined children’s games, a 12-foot snowman, and the usual array of mechanical musical friends like the 7-Foot Tall Metronome and Static the Singing Television."
