The Mob

The Mob were an anarcho-punk band originally from Yeovil, Somerset, England during the late 1970s and early 1980s. The band broke up in December 1983. Marc Mob was the bands center of attention with colourful (red) dreadlocks and an angelic face. On the contrary his voice sounded doomed, his lyrics featuring topics such as nuclear bombs, war, wastelands, death and doom in general. the mob. they knew that the world was a place of doom, gloom, and despair, and thus sung songs of mourning for a dying world. greed, corruption, and pollution have blotted out all hope and optimism. [Last.fm]
The Mob first reunited back in 2011 (maybe you saw them at Black & Blue Bowl or Chaos In Tejas in 2012), and now they're returning to the US once again this spring. They were already announced for DC's Damaged City Fest, and have since added club dates happening beforehand including NYC's Acheron on April 7. That show is with Survival, Suicidas and Pox. Tickets are on sale now. All known dates are listed, with a video from Chaos In Tejas 2012, below.

Chastity Belt

Seattle quartet Chastity Belt will release their second album, Time to Go Home, on March 24 via Hardly Art. Like their debut, No Regrets, they mix anger, humor and attitude with some of post-punk's more jangly influences. Electrelane is an admitted source of inspiration, and that's as good a reference point as any, though without the ethereal vocal style. No distortion, but plenty of tension, set to slow simmer. You can check out Time to Go Home's title track, which closes the album, below.

Chastity Belt (whose singer Julia Shapiro is also in Childbirth) only have one currently scheduled show -- Seattle's Tractor Tavern on January 28 where they'll open for Bass Drum of Death -- but look for them to tour late this year.

Album art, tracklist and the "Time to Go Home" song stream below...

Turn to Crime

Detroit's Turn to Crime are working on the follow-up to 2014's underrated Can't Love. If you haven't heard that, it's soulful garage rock that at times has a warm lived-in quality but also has its scratchy paranoid moments as well. Such are the times. You can stream the whole thing below.

The band, which features Derek Stanton from defunct Brooklyn band Awesome Color, will be heading to the East Coast next month for a handful of shows, including two in NYC: Cake Shop on February 25 with Dinowalrus and more TBA, and then February 26 at Shea Stadium with PC Worship and Beech Creeps. They'll also be heading to Austin for SXSW so if you're going to that, look for them there. All dates are listed below.

Speaking of Beech Creeps, the Brooklyn garage rock band (ex-People Get Ready, Yeasayer, Pterodactyl) are releasing their debut LP on March 3 via Monofonus Press, produced by Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, PC Worship). Stream a track below.

Two Gallants

As discussed, Two Gallants are releasing their fifth album, We Are Undone, on February 3 via ATO, and since we last spoke they released two of its singles, "Incidental" and the title track. Not that Two Gallants haven't always had a rockin' side, but these songs sound especially hard hitting for the folk rock band. "Incidental" is basically garage rock. Check them out below.

Also since we last spoke, Two Gallants expanded their tour. It already included NYC shows on February 13 at Mercury Lounge and February 14 at Rough, which are both sold out, and now includes a third NYC show on February 12 at Baby's All Right. The Merc and RT shows will be opened by Deer Tick side project Happiness, but openers for Baby's are TBA. Tickets for Baby's go on sale at 10 AM on Friday (1/23).

Updated dates are listed, with the new songs, below...

Missy Mazzoli

Brooklyn composer/pianist Missy Mazzoli, who's responsible for the 2012 opera Song from the Uproar (among other works), is releasing a new album with her ensemble Victoire, Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche, and three of the Roomful of Teeth vocalists (who she's worked with before) called Vespers for a New Dark Age on March 31 via New Amsterdam Records. Vespers for a New Dark Age premiered at Carnegie Hall in February 2014 during the Ecstatic Music Festival. A review of that on Baeble Music reads:

A year in the making, "Vespers for a New Dark Age" presents a real, raw presentation of how people confront issues with technology, death and God. The piece holds a strong emotional connection to the listener that is undeniable alongside the poetry of Zapruder. I held my breath through each sonic build-up and transition hoping not to miss a note, letting out a huge breath of air once the music had slowed down--stunned, attentive and trying to perceive my own thoughts through the intensity of the piece.
The album concludes with a remix by Lorna Dune (who's also in Victoire) of "A Thousand Tongues," which features vocals from Deidre of Savoir Adore. You can listen to that remix, with a trailer for Vespers for a New Dark Age, below.

Missy Mazzoli and Victoire will be celebrating the album live on a short tour with a great and indie-oriented bill of Glasser and Noveller. Those dates begin with a release party in NYC on May 7 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Missy Mazzoli and Victoire will also team up before that at a concert headlined by the legendary Meredith Monk at Carnegie Hall on March 22. Meredith will be performing with a vocal ensemble, and there's also the Bang on a Can All-Stars, Don Byron, DJ Spooky, Future Quest, John Zorn and many more. Tickets are on sale now.

Missy has other upcoming events as well, including more in NYC. Her piece Isabelle Eberhardt Dreams of Pianos will be performed by Shai Wosner and the Parker Quartet on January 28 at Kaufmann Concert Hall, along with works by Kurtág and Schubert (tickets), and she'll perform with ETHEL, Mivos Quarter, Marnie Breckenridge, Joey Redhage, Nathan Schram and Robert Simonds at Columbia University's Miller Theatre on February 5 (tickets). More of Missy's events can be found here.

In related news, Victoire tourmate Noveller plays a release show for her previously-discussed new album, Fantastic Planet, two days after it comes out at Cameo on January 29. That show will be headlined by Porcelain Raft, and Ponyhof opens. Tickets are on sale.

Videos and tour dates below...

Fleetwood Mac

Fleetwood Mac's classic lineup of Christine McVie, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham are currently on a tour which lands in NYC tonight to begin a three-show run in the area. The only show in NYC proper is MSG tonight (1/22), and that's followed by Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall on Saturday (1/24) and Nassau Coliseum on Sunday (1/25). They return again next month to hit Prudential Center on February 8. You can still get tickets to those.

The tour's recent stop in Lincoln, NE last week was cut short after drummer Mick Fleetwood got sick backstage. Independent.IE reported, "A drum technician played Go Your Own Way for Fleetwood, then Christine McVie played the piano and sang Songbird with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham before the band ended the show." Luckily everything went fine at the following show in Grand Rapids. Let's hope it stays that way in NYC!

In related news, Night of 1000 Stevies, the annual Stevie Nicks tribute drag/burlesque/dance party returns for its 25th year to NYC's Irving Plaza on May 1. Tickets are on sale.

Interpol will release El Pintor track "Everything is Wrong" as a 7" on Record Store Day (April 18) that features a new B-side, "What Is What," as well as nifty design by acclaimed street artist Shepard Fairey (who did the art to both Antics and El Pintor). Artwork for that is below. The band just released the video for the song which was co-directed by frontman Paul Banks with Carlos Puga. Shot here in NYC, it follows the members on their various daytime routines, though it's clearly a slightly alternate universe. Also look out for a cameo from his girlfriend, '90s supermodel Helena Christensen (who starred famously in Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" video 25 years ago). Watch it below.

As mentioned, Interpol will be playing a Celebrate Brooklyn! show at Prospect Park on July 21. Tickets are currently on BrooklynVegan presale (password: BVINTERPOL) and will go on sale to the general public on Friday (1/23) at noon.
