Devoted chroniclers of the Canadian music scene may already be hip to Clues, the musical project of Alden Penner (the Unicorns) and Brendan Reed (Arcade Fire), also featuring Montreal music scene staples Ben Borden, Lisa Gamble, and Nick Scribner.
But now, after building a small cult following on their instrument-packed live shows and online music store villavillanola.com, the supergroup is ready for the next step: Clues have announced that their yet-to-be titled debut album will arrive in the spring of 2009 via Constellation Records. What's more, New Yorkers can catch the band's first-ever show in the Big Apple tonight! [Via Brooklyn Vegan]
