Sign in the pink bathroom at DbA's The Ranch
The final "Top Secret!" shows at Death by Audio are underway. Tuesday night (11/18) was the first of them, with Future Islands, The Immaculates (with Tim Harrington joining for an LCD Soundsystem), DJ Dog Dick and Adam Schatz & The Farewell to Death by Audio Suite. We'll have pictures from that up in just a few. In the meantime, DbA has posted their cryptic preview of tonight's show:
Woweee! Last night was so wonderful! Lets do it again! So for tonight, we shall begin at 8:30pm Sharp! with our good friend Adam from the Dreebs brining us a set from his new project Junkyard, thats all i will outright tell you for the evening, but i will say if you like your rock noisy, tonight is your night, There will be Giant Monkeys Throwing Things! Men that travel from one area of a building to another at a speed that is faster than walking! & the other band all have Awesome Physiques! Please join us!"Giant Monkeys Throwing Things" would have to be Guerilla Toss, who actually announced this date already. What do you think the rest all means?
Hundred Waters in Chicago earlier this month (more by James Richards IV)
Hundred Waters are currently on a tour with Interpol which has them opening two of the three sold-out Terminal 5 shows (11/24, 25 & 26) and also playing their own smaller show on November 25 at Rough Trade which Mutual Benefit main man Jordan Lee was recently added to (tickets).
They've now announced a headlining tour for early 2015 which brings them back to NYC on March 5 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale at noon on Friday (11/21).
The Interpol/Hundred Waters tour hit Chicago last week. Check out more pictures (like the one above) from that show over at BV Chicago. Updated dates are listed, with their recently-released video for "Out Alee" from this year's The Moon Rang Like A Bell, below...

A Place to Bury Strangers @ DbA, 10/27/2014 (more by Ebru Yildiz)
A Place to Bury Strangers will release their new album, Transfixiation, on February 17 via Dead Oceans. The first single is "Straight" which adds a little bluesy funk to the band's signature noisy style. You can stream it below. You can also watch a teaser for the album that was filmed at APTBS' show at Death by Audio last month that ended with Oliver Ackerman's guitar jammed in DbA's drop ceiling. That's below too.
Lately, Oliver Ackerman can be found tending bar in "The Ranch" -- aka Death by Audio's back space, now open for the Death by Art installation -- which is where the DbA pedal shop was before the space announced it was closing for good. (It's relocated elsewhere temporarily till they find a more permanent space.) APTBS are for sure the band most synonymous with Death by Audio -- will they make room to play their one more time? There's only four nights left, all of which remain "Top Secret!"
After DbA closes, life will go on for A Place to Bury Strangers (obviously) with the new album and a lengthy 2015 tour that kicks off at NYC's Music Hall of Williamsburg on February 17. Tickets for that show will be available soon.
All dates are listed, along with the song stream, album art, tracklist and teaser video, below...

UK multimedia duo Public Service Broadcasting are looking to the heavens for their new album, The Race For Space, which is out February 23. As the title suggests, this time the focus their cut-and-paste technique is the '60s obsession with getting into orbit. The first single is "Gagarin," a tribute to Russian cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, the first man to orbit the earth in a spacecraft. With samples from various radio and television broadcasts, J. Willgoose, Esq. and Wrigglesworth have concocted a very funky backing track for it. For the video, directed by Alex Kemp, you get just what you'd expect: a pair dancing astronauts. You can watch it below.
PSB were last in North America for CMJ 2013 but they'll splash down on this side of the Atlantic again next year for SXSW.
