Brooklyn trio Mount Sharp are refreshingly gimmick free, with singer Sarah Wood's strong songwriting and appealing vocals setting their fuzzy guitar pop apart from the pack. The band's new EP, titled Weird Fears, is out next week (8/26) via YK Records. The vinyl is one-sided with a cool etching on the flip by Kris Johnson (preorder yours). You can listen to the whole EP ahead of it's release -- we're premiering the stream in this post.
The band have a few East Coast shows surrounding the EP's release, including NYC at Pianos on September 5 with Moon Furies, The Van Burens, The Brazilian Johnsons and Sunset Hearts also on the bill. Advance tickets are on sale. They'll also play NJ's Asbury Lanes on September 26.

New York indie rockers Cymbals Eat Guitars will put out their third album, LOSE, next week (8/26) via Barsuk and it's currently available to stream on NPR. It's an excellent album, and singer Joseph D'Agostino has spoken in interviews saying most of it is about the death of a high school friend (who passed away in 2007), but also about loss in general. "I wanna wake up wanting to listening to records, but those old feelings elude me," he sings on "XR," recalling how important a great record can be to you in your youth. It echoes similar sentiments made two years ago in a Pitchfork interview by Titus Andronicus singer Patrick Stickles, whose album The Monitor D'Agostino calls the best album of the last five years. If you're looking for the kind of big, cathartic rock of The Monitor, you'll find it on a few tracks here ("Warning," "XR"), as well as a diverse palette of other sounds, like the 8-minute psychedelic pop opus, "Laramie."
As discussed, Cymbals Eat Guitars play a Brooklyn show at Baby's All Right (8/26) on album release day (tickets), and they've since added two more NYC shows happening surrounding that. First, they play an in-store Tuesday (8/19) at Apple Store SoHo which is free with RSVP, and then on August 27 they play a $5 show in their hometown of Staten Island at 5050 Skatepark with Bueno, Grooms and Aches.
After that, they go on a previously discussed tour supporting Bob Mould, which includes his NYC shows happening September 10 & 11 at Bowery Ballroom and 9/13 at MHOW (tickets). So that's six total chances to see Cymbals Eat Guitars in NYC over the course of the next month.
Updated dates are listed, with a stream of "Warning," below...
Mates of State at Mercury Lounge in 2011 (more by David Andrako)

Pharmakon at Drone Activity in Progress in 2013 (more by PSquared Photography)
Pharmakon is streaming "Body Betrays Itself" off of her forthcoming album Bestial Burden, the followup to her critically acclaimed 2013 debut Abandon. The song's a good one -- it pulses ominously along with Temple of Doom drums, while one-woman force Margaret Chardaret screams and wails over top. You can listen to it below. If you want to hear more, the album is out on Sacred Bones on October 14.
As we've mentioned, Pharmakon is touring Europe with Swans (again!) this fall. She was also scheduled to play an NYC show at Death By Audio on August 29 with Una Bestia and La Misma, but she's since had to drop off -- she's traveling to China for a couple dates with Liars, including Bejiing's Modern Sky Festival (which is getting a NYC edition) -- so NYC fans will have to wait.
Pharmakon recently sat down with Pitchfork to talk about the new album--head over there to read their Q&A. Otherwise, all tour dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...
Waxahatchee at Coachella 2014 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
It's been a while since Waxahatchee have played NYC and even longer since they've headlined a show here, but that will finally change this fall.
A full tour hasn't been announced at the moment, but a few dates have popped up including a NYC show in-the-round at Le Poisson Rouge on November 10. Tickets for that show go on sale Wednesday (8/20) at 10 AM.
UPDATE: It's a full tour and will be Katie Crutchfield touring solo to preview songs from her upcoming followup to Cerulean Salt. All dates are listed below. She also gave this statement on the shows:
I'm really looking forward to my upcoming tour this fall. I'm planning on playing songs from both my albums as well as songs from a new album i just finished recording. I'll also be playing solo, which i'm really excited about. We chose most of the venues specifically because they're more conducive to a more intimate type of performance. When i first started playing these songs i only toured solo and it's always so gratifying for me to perform that way againWatch the video for "Misery Over Dispute" from last year's excellent Don Giovanni-released Cerulean Salt, with the list of currently known dates, below...

Nude Beach at 4Knots 2014 (more by Chris LaPutt)
Brooklyn's Nude Beach have been readying their new LP 77 for Don Giovanni, and they've just announced a release show for that record. It will take place in NYC on November 5 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets will go on AmEx presage starting Wednesday (8/20) at noon, and on sale to the general public on Friday (8/22) at noon.
Nude Beach also recently shared another new song from 77 called "For You," another catchy slice of classic-rock inflected power-pop. Its already stuck in my head, and you can stream it below...
California X at Death By Audio in 2013 (more by Vladislav Grach)
Poppy Amherst, MA sludge-punks California X are heading out on tour in a couple days. They'll play a NJ show in New Brunswick at Paradise Lost on August 31 with Brick Mower, Casual and Osaka. Then they'll play NYC at Death By Audio on September 6 with Slothrust and Mannequin Pussy. Tickets for both those shows are available at the door. No word yet on new music for the Don Giovanni-signed band, but hopefully some of that will be coming along as it feels like its been awhile since we got their excellent self-titled debut. All tour dates listed below.
Mannequin Pussy also have other dates, including their previously discussed show with Little Big League, Ovlov and Krill on September 3 at Shea Stadium. They also recently released another "new" song from the re-release of their debut album which is coming this September on Tiny Engines. You can stream that, with their list of dates and Cali X's dates, below...
