Wu Lyf at Music Hall of Williamsburg (more by Toby Tenenbaum)
Wu Lyf

Wu Lyf's new LP is making some year-end lists and if you haven't already, you can catch the World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation on the road in the new year. The "satanist" band will head down-under for a set of dates in late January/early February, but will return for a stint in the US in April including a pair of NYC shows: Music Hall of Williamsburg on 4/26 and Bowery Ballroom on 4/27. Tickets for both shows go on AMEX presale at noon tomorrow (12/14) with regular sale hitting on Friday.

Wu Lyf recently recorded a KEXP performance which you can watch below. The session includes a cover of Papa M's "Krusty", but did not include their cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game". A video of them playing that live is in this post too though, with all tour dates (not counting Coachella?), below...

Soundtrack for fixed gear bike repair and urban beekeeping. Amazingly boring live, you mean?

is that the lead singer from A Ha? Did somebody Take Him On?

are you kidding me? is this actually a band? this guy has got to be the worst singer i've ever heard.

I'm sorry but I have to keep going. there's a lot of band I don't like, or respect, but can see the appeal and recognize their talent. I've seen this band appear on nearly every "best of 2011" list and this is the first I've really listened to them.

Not a single person in this band seems to know how to play their instrument. Seriously. Wtf? Every so often something comes along where I SWEAR the people have to just be pretending they like the music. What could you possibly get out of this? The singer looks like a backstreet boy trying to sing like tom waits. And the bass player with the post-hipster-rapist moustache... dont even get me started.

It's shit like this that creates BV trolls and gives "indie" music such a bad name. Ugh.
