Weatherman is the minimal, downtempo, experimental pop trio made up of Annie Toth on keyboards and vocals, Jason Toth on drums, and Joshua Dumas on electronics. This show on July 29th is the Chicago stop on a short Midwest tour with Dosh to celebrate the release of their self-titled debut album, recorded with Alex Inglizian from Chicago’s Experimental Sound Studio.

Drummer Toth's 17-year history in Chicago music began with Fruit Bats, continued with The Sinister Luck Ensemble, Manishevitz, the Zincs, Edith Frost, and Daniel Knox, and now finds him in an ongoing tenure with the bred-in-Chicago goth-folk band The Handsome Family. He and Annie (frequent collaborator with Angela James, Marvin Tate, Peter Andreadis, Jeff Greene) met when her all female, piano and string, neo-romantic pop group Singing in the Abbey decided to add a drummer. The two, now married, began collaborating on a new batch of material. Joshua Dumas, a composer in his own right (Mending, Chicago Avenue Moon) and part of the collective that surrounded the former Pieholden Studio (Quarter Mile Thunder) and his pig pen electronics setup were invited to join to make it three when he remarked after seeing the duo live that what their songs needed was a single Dr Dre note counterpoint line up at the top.

What started as piano and drum kit expanded to include synths, samplers, drum machines, and keyboards. The trio recorded three singles with Inglizian that they released digitally with Pennsylvania independent label La Société Expéditionnaire. Two of those and four new recordings have been combined to make up this self-titled release.
