No Joy's new album, More Faithful, is out June 9 via Mexican Summer which takes the band even further into the ethereal realm they dipped their toes in on Wait to Pleasure. If you liked that album's killer "Hare Tarot Lies," you'll definitely dig the new LP. Case in point: gossamer new single "Moon in My Mouth" which you can stream, along with another More Faithful track, below.

Don't worry, they haven't forsaken noise and volume -- there are plenty of those on the new LP too. No Joy are also crushingly loud live, and they'll be inducing tinnitus to those without earplugs on their upcoming tour which hits NYC on June 23 at Baby's All Right. Still no openers announced for that show but tickets are on sale now.

Tour dates are listed, along with song streams, below...

Cities Aviv

Rap weirdo Cities Aviv has a new single out, "Neutralizer" / "Graced and Blessed," on which he continues to push the genre's boundaries. Even in a world with Yeezus and Death Grips, this is pretty out-there stuff -- experimental electronic music (WGM produced) takes the place of anything you'd traditionally call a "hip hop beat" and Cities' delivery is raw, unique, and doesn't succumb to any major rap trends, past or present. Listen below.

Cities Aviv has two very cool and very different NYC shows coming up. The first is a Palisades show on May 2 with hardcore band Sick Feeling (no strangers to shows with rappers) and Show Me the Body. That's a late show, starting at midnight, and tickets are on sale.

Later that month, he plays a much bigger show at Webster Hall on May 23 which is the Boysnoize Records 10th anniversary and stacked with electronic artists, including label head Boys Noize, Ed Banger vet Mr. Oizo, Boys Noize & Mr. Oizo's collaborative project Handbraekes, LA's Salva, Baltimore party-starter Spank Rock, producer and Beyonce/Diplo video director Lil Internet, and SCNTST b2b Pilo. Tickets for that one are on sale now too.

Boys Noize also has a ton of other tour dates, which are listed, along with the new Cities Aviv single and a Handbraekes song, below...

Against Me!

We already knew that one of the 2015 Northside Festival shows would have Against Me! but the venue for that remained unannounced for over a month. Now we know they're playing one of the free shows in McCarren Park that happen this year all four days of Northside, June 11-14.

Against Me! play June 13, and one day prior it's The Very Best and Heems (6/12). Stay tuned for the 6/11 and 6/14 lineups. The shows are free, but RSVP is required, and you can RSVP for Very Best/Heems HERE and for Against Me! HERE. Even with RSVP, admission is first come, first served, but you're guaranteed entry if you have a Premium or Music Badge.

Against Me! also have several other tour dates this year, and Laura Jane Grace plays a couple solo shows, including one in NYC.

Heems plays another free NYC show on May 1 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with Michael Christmas, Pills, ZZZs and Iyez.

Mariachi El Bronx

Mariachi El Bronx, the mariachi alter ego of LA punk band The Bronx, have an upcoming tour opening for Flogging Molly and Gogol Bordello this June, but they'll be headlining a string of dates before that.

The headlining run brings them to NYC on May 20 at Baby's All Right. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Mineral Girls

The current Charlotte, NC indie rock scene seems pretty interconnected, with the Tiny Engines-signed It Looks Sad, who share members with Alright, who share members with Late Bloomer. Another band who rolls with that same scene is Mineral Girls, which includes Brett Green and Vince D'Ambrosio who were both founding members of It Looks Sad but have since left to focus on this band. Mineral Girls have an upcoming hometown show with Alright, and that's a few days after they play Charlotte's Reverb Fest with Beach Fossils, Elvis Depressedly, Jackson Scott and more.

The band then goes on a short tour, hitting NYC on June 2 at Bowery Electric with Cicada Radio and The Cartwheelers. No ticket info yet. All dates (some of which are still TBA) are listed below.

The hometown show with Alright is a release show for Mineral Girls' upcoming album, Cozy Body, which comes out May 19 via Self Aware Records (pre-order), and Feels Alright is putting it out on cassette. New single "Nvr Ur GF" is lo-fi/slacker DIY pop that should fit in well on a fest with Beach Fossils and Elvis Depressedly. That song premieres below.
