Pocahaunted

Los Angeles' dub/psych/tribal/etc outfit Pocahaunted are in town for two shows this weekend -- Saturday (6/12) at Glasslands and Sunday (6/13) at Pianos. The band has expanded to a five-piece following the departure of Bethany Cosetino (now of Best Coast) and released their second album, Make it Real, earlier this year. You can check out an MP3 at the top of this post.

Both shows feature Brooklyn's Prince Rama who make blissed out ambient drone, and whose debut album is due out this September on Paw Tracks.

Also playing both shows are Austin trio Sleep ∞ Over . The latter are making their first visit to NYC and have a new 7" is out now on Forrest Family Records (label from the Gorilla Vs Bear/Weekly Tape Deck folks). You can download the A-side at the top of this post. It's dreamy, ethereal stuff and comparisons to Beach House aren't off the mark. In addition to the Pocahaunted shows, Sleep 8 Over are also playing a free day show at Co-Op 87 with Future Shuttle and Baltimore's Lower Dens . That starts at 3PM.

Lower Dens is the new band from Jana Hunter (Matt & Mossy, Castanets) and their quite wonderful, seriously good debut album, Twin Hand Movement, is out next month on Devendra Banhart's Gnomonsong label. You can download "Hospice Gates" at the top of this post.  Lower Dens are also playing tomorrow with fellow Baltimorians Future Islands at Silent Barn.  And you can download a Future Islands track at the top of this post.

Pocahaunted is one of the most infuriatingly stupid and childish band names I've heard in a while. Pretty clever, girls!

That Pocahaunted chick needs a haircut.

Half of the blogosphere isn't even covering real bands any more. These "bands" are in-jokes that in 1990 would've remained unknown and relegated to screwing around in a basement or dorm room and wouldn't have even merited a house party. Now they get deals on Mexican Summer or some other wank factory and are treated like they merit attention.
