Pop.1280

Pop 1280 mine the dark chasms of punk and no-wave on their new LP The Horror, due on Sacred Bones on January 24th. The band previously released the song "Bodies In The Dunes" from that album, and we are now proud to premiere another track today called "New Electronix". Stream both below.

Pop 1280 have THREE NYC shows scheduled for the next couple of months. Most imminently, the band will play Sunday at Music Hall of Williamsburg (1/22) with Pissed Jeans & Protect-U. Tickets are still available. The band will ALSO play a record release show that week at the WIERD party at Home Sweet Home on January 25th with DJs Caleb Braaten (of Sacred Bones) + Glenn Maryansky (of Cult of Youth), more details are available at the Facebook invite. Last but not least, look for Pop 1280 at Saint Vitus on March 3rd with Velvet Condom and Bootblacks. Tickets are on sale.

Speaking of Cult of Youth, vocalist/guitarist Sean Ragon will re-open his record store Heaven Street on Friday (1/20). The opening of the new location (184 Noll St, near Flushing Ave, off the Morgan L) will be accompanied by free beer, and DJ sets from Glenn Maryansky, Sybil Disobedience, Chris Prorock, Ning Nong and Gasface. The grand re-opening kicks off at 4PM and more details are available at the Facebook invite.

He's probably thinking about all the stupid shit Brookyln Vegan "readers" are going to say about this picture.

Why are we saying No Wave in 2012?

Posted by REally? | January 19, 2012 4:44 PM

Maybe cause theres too many pseudo "experimental" Brooklyn bands (cult of youth is more a posturing scene thing wishing they were on World Serpent) taking quite a bit from the past No Wave\ Noise\ post rock NYC bands instead of say a group like Made in Mexico from Providence who do a bit, but flat out acknowledge they are influenced by bands from that era.

To clear up a little something, NY was NEVER onsale at arcadefire.com today. I was refreshing all morning and it wasn't there. Whether it was ever supposed to be or not is the confusion. Merge said it would and neither they nor Arcade Fire has said anything to clear that up.

It is good that there are always bands that want to explore new musical horizons, because in this way we know a constant variety in this area overcrowded.

To be very clear and sincere I don't like this band. Sometyhing but I don't know what makes me feel very bad when I hear their music.
