My Best Fiend

Brooklyn's My Best Fiend are set to release their debut LP, In Ghostlike Fading, next week (2/21) via Warp, though you can buy it now on iTunes.

They last played when they opened for The Hundred in the Hands at Glasslands late last month (1/27). How was that show? CMJ said their set was "one of the most impressive performances" of the night.

They've got another NYC show coming up at Le Poisson Rouge on March 1 with TEEN and No Ordinary Monkeys (DJ). Tickets for that show are on sale now. More detais to be announced soon, including SXSW.

My Best Fiend's new album features guest vocals from Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum, who just announced an album, tour, and LPR show too.

And speaking of Warp, Squarepusher plays Webster Hall on March 15th, BrooklynVegan is proud to present the NYC debut of Kwes at Glasslands on March 10th, and !!! have a bunch of dates coming up including an April run with Shabazz Palaces. That tour doesn't hit NYC, though the two artists play Philly together right after Shabazz Palaces plays two NYC shows.
