The Maldives’ Jason Dodson and The Posies’ Ken Stringfellow collaborated recently on a split 7” release, put out by Spark & Shine records. To celebrate the release, the two played a couple shows together, one at Easy Street Records, and another live at KEXP. Prior, Dodson’s band had backed Stringfellow on a west coast tour, including shows at Barboza in Seattle and at Doe Bay Fest. Stringfellow, who’s been living in Paris for the last 10 years, put out a solo album in 2012 called Danzig in the Moonlight. See the two play live together - and talk about Parisian, er, sports - here:
