Nicole Atkins

With her new album, Mondo Amore, coming out Jan 25 (Razor & Tie), New Jersey-born, Brooklyn-based crooner, Nicole Atkins has just released the Vultures 7". The record features her first single of the same name backed with her beautiful cover of "Vitamin C," the classic hit from German kraut-rockers Can.

"'Vitamin C' is my favorite song from one of my favorite bands. I also wanted to record something that wasn't so centralized around the vocals but more about the overall feel of the band. It was like 'let's record a song that I wish was my own.'" - Nicole Atkins

Download Nicole's Vitamin C cover above.

Nicole Atkins recently took part in tributes to both Bob Dylan and John Lennon, and will honor yet another person with music at a show tonight (12/11), though this time it's the much sadder kind of tribute. Musician Zach Arrias passed away suddenly on Thanksgiving due to a blood clot that went to his heart. Friends, including Nicole Atkins, David Pattillo and Mollie King, will gather and perform in his memory upstairs at Pianos from 7-10pm.

Nicole Atkins kicks off a tour in support of her new record (see above) on February 9th at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are on sale. No openers are announced yet for that show, but she will be joined by Cotton Jones on the rest of the tour.

Cotton Jones just so happens to be playing in NYC tonight as well, at Mercury Lounge with Crooked Fingers.

All dates below...

How can a band with the word FUCK in their name be allowed to play in a library. Really am I missing something? If I started a band named CUNT could we play a library? Or even get ANY press? Its so strange to me that overall, the word fuck has been relaxed in only a few years...

Looks like Tipper Gore failed.
