Yamantaka // Sonic Titan at Mercury Lounge in 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)

Canadian costumed-face-painted-progressive-psychedelia collective Yamantaka // Sonic Titan have already announced they're coming to our side of the border for CMJ, and it's since been revealed that they'll be doing a quick North American tour after that as well. Those dates include another NYC-area appearance on Halloween (10/31) at Basilica in Hudson, NY (where the Basilica Sound Scape festival just happened). That show is with Norwegian art pop musician Jenny Hval (who also has NYC shows coming up), plus special guests Tanz Praxis (featuring C. Lavender). Tickets for the show will be available via Basilica's site soon.

YT//ST's one currently announced CMJ show is the Panache showcase happening on October 16 at Knitting Factory with Jacco Gardner, Saint Rich, U.S. GIrls, Slim Twig, and Arp. Tickets for that show are still available, and you can also try to get in using your CMJ badge.

YT//ST also just made a video for "One" off their upcoming album UZU (due out 10/29 via Suicide Squeeze), which you can watch, along with the list of all tour dates, below...

Paul Simon was an old white guy who tried to sing music from South Africa. Ruby is of Japanese decent and sings in Japanese sometimes. Angela is Aboriginal and sings in Ojibway. Any way you slice it (sorry about the Fruit Ninja reference) anonymous -September 18 reeks of racism. Time to join the 21st century.

If it weren't for vegan liberals holding us back, we could eliminate the entire human race and build sentient robots to take over, even so far as to conquer other inhabited planets. Paul Simon might not be overtly racist, but he has his head so far up his own ass that what would be attributed to racism for somebody else, is merely excused as the musings of a gentle, aged, dodderer.

Just when you thought things couldn't get any more hipster pretentious. This band and video are trying to force "epic" sooo bad its embarrassing. Leave the social agenda BS at home too, as this vid is riddled with it. I thought this was a parody at first, then read that they are actually for I'm sure they'll do well in San Fran and Williamsburg, NY
