Boyd Shropshire has been playing in Philly bands for years. You may remember him from mid-'00s indie rockers Human Television and he's also spent time with Kurt Vile & the Violators. Shropshire will release his second solo album, Victory Weather, next week (7/29) via Wonderland Archives. As you might expect from a former Vile associate, it's hazy, lazy and quite lovely. You can listen to the whole thing right now -- we're premiering a stream of the whole album in this post.

There will be a NYC release party on August 5 at Union Pool. Jess Williamson and Matt Bauer are also on the bill with Boyd. No advance tickets, $8 at the door.

Album stream below...

RL Grime at Coachella 2014 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
RL Grime

RL Grime has a handful of impressive EPs, remixes and more under his belt, and he's now finally set to release his debut full length this year via WeDidIt (more details TBA). He recently put out its first single "Core," which you can watch the video of (dir. David Rudnick & Daniel Swan) below.

RL Grime also announced a tour, dubbed the Void Tour, which brings him to NYC for his largest headlining show here yet on December 19 at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/25) at noon with a presale starting Wednesday (7/23).

Sufjan

Sufjan Stevens surprised some people when he went electronic on 2010's The Age of Adz, and though it was the first time he made a record like that, it wasn't the first time he made an electronic album. 2001's synth experiment Enjoy Your Rabbit got a vinyl release for its first time ever this year via Asthmatic Kitty, and one of its tracks, "Year of the Tiger," also got a video for the first time (dir. Geoffrey Hoskinson). You can watch that below.

Enjoy Your Rabbit was also reworked as an orchestral album in 2009 by the Osso String Quartet, and was released under the name Run Rabbit Run with arrangements from Nico Muhly, Rob Moose, Gabriel Kahane, Michael Atkinson and more. TONIGHT (7/22) in Central Park, Michael Atkinson's New York orchestra The Knights will be performing the US premiere of a suite from Run Rabbit Run as part of the Naumburg Orchestral Concerts series in between performances of Bela Bartok and Igor Stravinsky. It beings at 7:30 PM, is free, and entry is first come, first served. More info here.

We're not sure exactly how early you need to get on line to get a seat for the show tonight, but we know at least it's not as hard as getting one of the tickets for Shakespeare in the Park which saw many getting to Central Park before dawn this morning. "King Lear," starring John Lithgow and Annette Bening, begins tonight.

The Naumburg series continues with two more concerts in August, and The Knights have other dates including a Brooklyn show at Roulette on September 18.

Watch that Sufjan video below...

EMA at Rough Trade in May (more by Amanda Hatfield)
EMA

As discussed, EMA is one of the openers on the upcoming Spoon tour, though she doesn't open their NYC date happening 9/10 at Central Park Summerstage (it's also not with Hamilton Leithauser who opens many of their dates, and does play Central Park with Broken Bells). She will, however, play her own NYC show after that tour at Bowery Ballroom on October 5. Montreal's Doldrums are on that show too, making for an excellent double bill. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/25) at noon.

Spoon, who put out two videos from their new album yesterday (7/21), also recently expanded their tour. An updated list of their dates is below. Still no opener announced for Central Park though.

EMA released her great sophomore album, The Future's Void, earlier this year. Doldrums' last was 2013's Lesser Evil. Watch videos from those, with the list of dates, below...

Kimbra at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Kimbra

Kimbra quickly escalated from only being known (in the US) as the other singer on that Gotye song to someone who could headline some pretty large rooms. She's now set to release her first album since that newfound success, The Golden Echo, on August 19 via Warner Brothers. The album was produced by Rich Costey (The Shins, TV on the Radio) and features contributions from The Mars Volta's Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Dirty Projectors' Dave Longstreth and others. It's already spawned four diverse singles, which you can listen to below.

Kimbra will support the new record on a tour with NYC art pop singer Empress Of that hits Empress Of's hometown on November 6 at Bowery Ballroom, a smaller place than Kimbra's last headlining show here. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/25) at noon.

All dates are listed, with those song streams, below...

tom vektom vek

Tom Vek released his third album, Luck, last month via Moshi Moshi. His style -- jittery, syncopated, danceable postpunk -- is as distinctive as his voice, and he doesn't futz with the formula too much here. That's not a bad thing. You can stream the album via Rdio and check out a few tracks, remixes and videos from Luck below.

Tom will be in NYC in October, playing Baby's All Right on 10/20 and Mercury Lounge on 10/21. Tickets for Baby's and Mercury Lounge go on sale Friday (7/25) at noon with an AmEx presale for Mercury Lounge starting Wednesday (7/23) at noon.

Both of those shows happen the same week as this year's CMJ Fest (Oct. 21 - 25). The Baby's show is before CMJ starts and its unclear whether the Merc show is an official showcase. But expect more Tom Vek shows that week to be announced as we get closer to the fest.

Videos, streams and remixes below...
