Covering The Breeders' Cannonball has been a set staple on Courtney Barnett's current tour so it's no real surprise that she and Kim Deal might have a few things to talk about. The Talkhouse thought so, at least, and got the two together for the current edition of their podcast. Their insightful and funny hour-plus conversation touches on a lot of subjects: lyrical inspiration, guitar styles, drugs, what being 27 is like, and more. Have a listen below...

La Luz have shared a second track off their forthcoming second album, Weirdo Shrine, which is out in August on Hardly Art. "Don't Wanna Be Anywhere" is the quintessential La Luz sound: light and frothy, with drony organ and lush harmonies riding the crest. You can stream or download it below.

Arcade Fire's Will Butler has been pursuing his solo career this year, having visited NYC a few times. He'll return this Wednesday (7/1) at The Well for the venue to celebrate Canada Day, here renamed Canada D'eh, with fellow Canadian bands July Talk and Walrus. It's free with RSVP, and they'll have a Canadian breakfast (aka pancakes with maple syrup), Canadian whiskey and Canadian craft beer. Doors are at noon and the music starts at 5 PM.
The Fourth of July is this Saturday, and for those not using Independence Day Weekend to get away from the city -- or for those who will be visiting from out of town -- there's never a shortage of things to do. We've got a bunch of mostly musical suggestions for you.

As previously mentioned, NJ punks The Bouncing Souls are playing a big home state show on July 17 at Starland Ballroom with killer support from Andrew Jackson Jihad, Screaming Females, and Seaside Caves.

Details below.
The day after the show, Bouncing Souls singer Greg Attonito and his wife Shanti Wintergate's children's music duo Play Date play an afternoon NJ show.

Prince Rama @ the Whitney, 2013 (more by Ryan Muir)
South Street Seaport will be full of music on the Fourth of July, as they'll host the free Festival of Independence offering a wide variety of performers across three stages. Acts include singer-songwriter Freedy Johnston and
indie rock band Elk City (featuring Luna's Sean Eden) on the Fulton Street Stage; Prince Rama and Salt Cathedral on the indoor Fulton Stall Market Stage; and over at the Peck Slip Stage there's Dolly Parton cover band Doll Parts and other twangy acts. The Seaport is also a good place to watch the fireworks. Full lineup and schedule below.
UPDATE: Elk City have unfortunately dropped off the bill.
Speaking of the Fulton Stall Market, the permanent indoor space is also host to Little Water Radio which broadcasts live every day from noon - 6 PM. There are shows from Northern Spy and Paper Garden records, and a host of other DJs (including this writer; my show "Past Future Perfect" is on Saturdays 2-4 PM Eastern). The space just opened the Market Bar which serves beer and wine. Little Water Radio is planning more live shows on Fulton Stall Market's stage this summer. Stay tuned.
