Last week, Failure announced summer tour dates, though they didn't include any in or around NYC. Now they've updated their schedule to include a Long Island show happening July 18 at The Space at Westbury. There's still a gap between that and their Nashville show on 7/21, so maybe NYC proper will still be added? Meanwhile, Long Island tickets go on sale Friday (5/29) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.

Failure are also now on part 3 of their studio diary for The Heart Is A Monster, their first album in 19 years. This part's written by drummer Kellii Scott, and can be read below. Read part 1 HERE and part 2 HERE. The Heart Is A Monster is due June 30 via INresidence and can be pre-ordered now.

Eternal Summers will release their new album, Gold & Stone, next week via Kanine. As I wrote previously, I think this rivals's 2012's Correct Behavior for the best thing they've done yet, taking a more shimmery tack that really works great with some of the band's best songs. There's also a gem from drummer Daniel Cundiff, titled "Ebb Tide," that reminds me a lot of Know By Heart-era American Analog Set. You can stream the whole thing right now over at The NY Times.

The band's tour winds around to the Northeast again this weekend, including a stop at NYC Popfest as part of the all-day Sunday (5/31) show at Littlefield with Club 8,  Lunchbox, Seabirds, Cold Beat, The Holiday Crowd, Starry Eyed Cadet, and Sapphire Mansions. Tickets are still available.

At the tail-end of their tour, Eternal Summers will be back to play Brooklyn Bowl on June 30, with Widowspeak and Small Black. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Updated tour dates are listed below.

Cassandra Jenkins

From the organization [Hypnocraft] that curated the collaboration series THE HUM comes AT THE INN -- an ongoing residency at Manhattan Inn, taking place this June through September on [mostly] the second Monday of each month. AT THE INN will explore the best of Brooklyn's music community in-the-round, and all performances will be free and open to the public.

HYPNOCRAFT has a serious fascination with the creative intersections in both the collaborative process and multi-disciplinary performances. Productions are primarily commission-based, working with artists of various disciplines with a focus on music, dance, film, and video art. HYPNOCRAFT's mission is to connect an eclectic scope of artists working in different mediums; serve as a platform for creative collaboration; bring audiences a whole new performance experience.

As the above quote points out, the people who brought you The Hum will begin a new series of free shows at Manhattan Inn in June. The first one happens Monday, June 8 with Pavo Pavo, Alpenglow, Cassandra Jenkins and My Bubba. It starts at 8:30 PM.

Pavo Pavo, who used to be called Plume Giant, recently put out a new single "Ran Ran Run," which precedes their album, Young Narrator In The Breakers (release date TBA). The band shares members with San Fermin and Sam Cohen's backing band, and some have collaborated with Dave Longstreth and Luke Temple of Here We Go Magic. You can hear that single below.

Alpenglow, whose 2014 EP we wrote about here, also play a NYC show on Saturday (5/30) at Mercury Lounge with All Forces, Steady Sun and Toebow (tickets).

Cassandra Jenkins, who sometimes plays with Eleanor Friedberger, also played one of the installments of The Hum this past April which we posted pictures of. She recently recorded a cover of Cat Stevens' "Wild World" with Delicate Steve which you can hear below.

Beach House

Beach House are finally ready to follow 2012's Bloom with a new album. They just announced that Depression Cherry will be out August 28 via Sub Pop, and once again the duo recorded it with producer Chris Coady. In a press release they say that unlike their last two releases, which were structured to fit the larger rooms the band had been playing, this one features less live drums. "Here, we continue to let ourselves evolve while fully ignoring the commercial context in which we exist," they add. Check out the tracklist and a sample lyric from each song, below.

The band also announced a tour which doesn't include any NYC shows, but they'll be in the area this August hitting Albany, New Haven and more. All dates are listed below...

Portland beach party trio Guantanamo Baywatch released their new album, Darling...It's Too Late, earlier this month on Suicide Squeeze. (Stream it via Rdio, below.) The band have made a video, directed by Brett Roberts, for the album's old school rock n' roll ballad of a title track which puts a fun spin on the old "deal with the devil" trope, taking them to Heaven and Hell and elsewhere. The song features backing vocals by Curtis Harding and the video premieres below.

Guantanamo Baywatch are on tour and will hit the East Coast soon, with two NYC shows: June 13 at Elvis Guesthouse (rest of lineup TBA) and June 14 at The Wick with Gymshorts and Scully. Tickets for The Wick show are on sale now. All tour dates are listed below.
