Montreal band Heat

Montreal's Heat have a new video for "This Life" which is on the expanded edition of their Rooms EP. Directed by Jimmi Francoeur, it's a simple but well-shot performance video and makes its premiere in this post. You can watch it below.

Heat have been touring a lot and will continue to do so. They'll be opening for Bully on that band's upcoming tour, including the NYC date which happens at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 28. Tickets for that show are still available.

All tour dates are listed, along with the new video, below...

Miguel

Miguel is currently on tour, and will hit NYC this Sunday (8/2) for a big show at Terminal 5. T5 is now sold out, but luckily Miguel added a second show here. It's also a much smaller one: Bowery Ballroom on August 5. Tickets go on sale Thursday (7/30) at noon, and they'll probably go fast. Miguel's tour also hits New Haven, Long Island, Atlantic City and more. Updated dates are listed below.

The tour is in support of his great new album Wildheart, which he put out two videos from this week. One is for "NWA" and the other is for "...goingtohell." Check out both, with the list of tour dates, below...

Lilys

Kurt Heasley of Lilys played Trans-Pecos earlier this month with his onetime bandmate Don Devore (who's currently of Sick Feeling). Kurt's now announced an official Lilys show, happening at Baby's All Right on October 9 and tickets are on sale now.

It's a very special one-time-only show which Heasley's calling "Corruption Wrecked My Life," featuring "never before or rarely performed early material 1990-1995." That time period was when Lilys were a shoegazy band and released such records as Eccsame The Photon Band and In The Presence of Nothing for labels like spinART and Slumberland. You can stream those two records below.

With Devore as musical director of this special show, they've put together a big band version of Lilys, that in addition to Heasley features:

James Richardson (MGMT)
Will Berman (MGMT)
Travis Rosenberg
Matt Werth (RVNG Intl. founder)
Ryan Rapsys (Euphone, The Sea & Cake)
Alex Craig (Limited, Ducktails, Big Troubles)
Stream Lilys' Eccsame The Photon Band and In The Presence of Nothing below...

Robert Plant

Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant and his band The Sensational Space Shifters (featuring members of Massive Attack and Portishead) already announced some tour dates back in June, and they've since added more.

Josephine Foster

Folk singer Josephine Foster may be a contemporary artist, but she feels transported directly from 1969 (it makes a lot of sense she's on the new Karen Dalton tribute). Tonight (7/29) she plays NYC with a folk singer who actually is from the late '60s, the legendary Ed Askew (who she's played with before). The show is at Trans-Pecos and opening is another '60s-inspired artist, Colby Nathan (of New England Patriots). Tickets are on sale.

It's the only date for Ed Askew at the moment, and Josephine's only other date is also in NYC this week: a free show at Fulton Stall Market on Friday (7/31).

UPDATE: The Fulton Stall Market show has been cancelled.

Josephine's last album was 2013's I'm A Dreamer on Fire Records. Listen to the title track from that, and the title track of Ed Askew's '60s classic, Ask the Unicorn, below...
