As mentioned, Australia's Jagwar Ma released their debut album, Howlin', over the summer that is an enjoyable mix of '60s psychedelic pop and late '80s baggy beats. You can stream it via Spotify and Rdio. The band will be in NYC this weekend for their first-ever North American shows, playing Mercury Lounge on September 30 and Glasslands on October 1. Both shows are sold out.
For those who didn't get tickets, Jagwar Ma will be back for a proper North American tour in December that includes an NYC stop at Bowery Ballroom on December 3. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/27) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (9/25) at noon. All tour dates are listed, along with a couple videos, below.
