Self-coined “acousmatic tape” musicians, Small Black, have released their spring 2016 USA tour dates and we’re celebrating the bittersweet news with their latest music video “No One Wants It To Happen To You.” Don’t take us the wrong way, we were thrilled when they announced show dates until we realized our city was not included 😦 But we’ll remain optimistic with their soothingly reassurance that they exhibit in “No One Wants It To Happen To You”

Brooklyn quartet Small Black debuted their self-titled EP back in 2010 and participated in number of fests like Primavera Sound and SXSW Music Festival. Aside from playing euphoniously distorted hi and lo-fi beats in major stages, they’ve done various remixes for other artists like Health, Washed Out, and Frankie Rose. “No One Wants It To Happen To You” is from their new LP, Best Blues, which came out on October 16, 2015. They will kick off their spring tour at the end of March.
