Having released Hit the Waves less than a year ago, Jönköping, Sweden's The Mary Onettes return with a new mini-album, titled Portico, which will be out later this year on their longtime home of Labrador Records. You can check out the synth-drenched, typically catchy "Silence is a Gun" which makes its premiere in this post.

The Mary Onettes will be over for SXSW and will tour around their appearance there, including the Savannah Stopover and a visit to NYC: March 7 at Glasslands with openers Heavenly Beat. Tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now.

Speaking of, Heavenly Beat (who are from Brooklyn but sound Swedish and made one of my favorite albums of 2013) play tonight (1/24) at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with French Horn Rebellion, Rush Midnight, and Pizza Underground. That show is free.

Mary Onettes tour dates are listed, along with the new track stream, below...

I feel like I'm looking at an 8x10 promo glossy of any given EastWest band circa 1995.

You people in NYC shouldn't take this opportunity for granted. Go see them. They aren't coming within six hours of me...

Both March dates are rescheduled for one May 3rd at Glasslands. Any other non-SXSW (which they're still playing this month) re-announced yet?

Its going to be VERY hard for this WHOLE album to be topped by anyone. This song is by far my favorite. But, the whole album flows perfectly. It must be playing it a few times a day at this point. Unreal.
