The Streets & Lady Sovereign: On Tour

Mike Skinner is bringing The Streets to America this spring with pint-sized opener Lady Sovereign. While both of them blow up back home, their fanbase is entirely made up of skinny white dorks that have college radio shows here in the States. Clearly everyone else is missing out because the latest release from The Streets, The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living, is poised to be one of this year's best. It's out on April 25th through Vice.

Last year's Vertically Challenged EP on Chocolate Industriesbrought Lady Sovereign's deft lyricism and tomfoolrey to our side of the Atlantic, and although a truncated tour cooled things off a bit, she is still poised to take things to the next level with her major label debut. It's called Public Warning and it will be out later this year on Island Def Jam. To pump you up for the album, I am giving away a vinyl copy of the "Blah Blah" single. The first person that can tell me who tried to kill Doc Brown in the parking lot of Hill Valley Mall in Back To The Future gets the record. E-mail me now!

Even though Back to the Future is an achievement of classic American cinema, you are the biggest dork ever.
