Impossible Shapes’ NORMANOAK tours eastern North America

The Impossible Shapes front man Chris Barth, better known as Normanoak, has released “A Double Gift of Tongues”, a limited-edition vinyl-only release and will be touring with longtime friend and bandmate Lord Fyre (John Wilkes Booze).

Normanoak’s presence recalls his music: loving and gentle, medicine pouch-clad, with re-told narratives of travels both real and salvia-induced. His album is the soundtrack to humid summer nights with whiskey-soaked friends on dilapidated porches, dreaming of our loves. Normanoak may be playing sitar atop a giant mushroom in the mind’s eye, but the music should be shared with him in person:
