It’s always have a blast shooting Tycho. This time around I (Shelby) shot the guys playing in Portland at the Crown Room and in Seattle at Bumbershoot. Instead of shooting mostly digital, I shot with my Yashica T4 exclusively. Something about about the very raw film and lack of manual exposure control on the camera really makes me never want to put it down. Also since it’s pocket-sized, I’m able to carry it around all the time.
We’re very pleased to announce that Tycho (full live band) will be joining Little Dragon for an East Coast tour this month. Details follow, hope to see you out!

We’ve got about a month to go until the full release of the new Tycho full length, Dive (out digital Oct. 25 / physical Nov. 15), but iTunes has the pre-order up now at a discount. I’m putting together a preview track with snippets from all the songs on the album, should be posting that in the coming weeks.
Happy to announce a free download of Teen Daze’s remix of Tycho:
“Daze, the new full-length from beatific producer Scott Hansen’s Tycho project, is out November 15 via Ghostly. You’ve heard the excellent first single “Hours”, and now here’s an equally blissful remix from Vancouver beatmaker Teen Daze.”
