Juan Wauters Releases Announces April 2014 Tour Dates With Mac Demarco

Juan Wauters returns today with another cut from his forthcoming debut N.A.P. North American Poetry (out february 4th), with the second single "Escucho Mucho". Though it's one of two Spanish-language tracks on the album (the other being "Ay Ay Ay"), you don't have to understand the language to appreciate the sentiment being conveyed by Wauters with this song, whose English translation is "I hear a lot". It's both introspective and outward looking as he examines the world he lives in, a common theme that runs throughout N.A.P.

Following the release of N.A.P., Juan will celebrate its release at Rough Trade NYC on February 15th and then looks forward to SXSW and a two week run of dates with label-mate Mac DeMarco (whose Salad Days LP is out April 1st). Full set of dates are below.

In 2000, Alberto Wauters left Uruguay to live in a basement in Queens. Two years later he called his son, Juan, to join him. Juan Wauters crossed the threshold into manhood when he arrived in New York. Working at a factory, the father and son pooled their money to bring their family to the borough of opportunity. With no friends to speak of, Juan turned to music to take control of the loneliness of his isolation. Juan was inspired by his new neighborhood of Jackson Heights and delighted to find that his library card gave him access to an abundance of new music.

In his debut solo record, N.A.P. North-American Poetry, Wauters dreams big; coming into his own as a singer. Building on his songwriting, popularized by The Beets, Juan presents introspective tracks, like "Water" and "Sanity", and reflections on humans' relationship with technology in songs like Breathing-which features Carmelle Safdie. The record is completed, as always, by the artwork of dear friend and longtime collaborator Matthew Volz, who has honed the trademark visual aesthetic of Juan's music. This album is a selection of recordings made between the fall of 2010 and the summer of 2012 at Marlborough Farms. N.A.P. delivers a fresh sound and lyrical candor from one of Queens' most idiosyncratic adoptive sons.

Live, Juan shares the stage with a revolving cast of international musicians of the highest caliber: vocalist Carmelle Safdie (Israel), multi-instrumentalist Tall Juan Zaballa (Argentina), percussionist Chie Mori (Japan), and flutist Amanda Rodi (Mexico). Matthew Volz heightens this lively and mood-altering experience with his painted banners, personal objects and manually manipulated light show. The ensemble is not to be missed.
