Alex G's new album and first for Domino, Beach Music, comes out this week. It's a hazy, kinda slowcore-ish record, and not without the quirk of his earlier releases. You can stream the whole thing below, via Hype Machine.
As previously discussed, Alex has release shows in NYC this week. The first is Baby's All Right on Thursday (10/8), which is sold out, and the second would have been Friday (10/9) at Silent Barn. Since Silent Barn is currently recovering from a fire, Friday's show has been moved to new venue SkyHigh Murals Future HQ (1109 Metropolitan Ave) and it's now also a benefit for Silent Barn. Frankie Cosmos and Palm were both added since we last spoke, and Emily Yacina opens too. Tickets are on sale now.
Alex also added a 7 PM acoustic in-store at Rough Trade NYC (10/9) happening right before the SkyHigh Murals Future HQ show. It's totally free, no wristband required. More info here.
Updated Alex G tour dates are listed, with the album stream, below...

Django Django will be on tour starting later this month, including a stop in NYC as part of the 2015 Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival. Their set happens at Verboten on November 7. Though Verboten doesn't do a lot of more traditional band shows, this is a regular Django Django show if you were wondering. Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
The band are releasing "Pause Repeat" as the next single from this year's Born Under Saturn, complete with some remixes, including "A JD Twitch Optimo Mix" which makes its premiere in this post. Where the original version has an almost early-'90s Madchester vibe to it, here it goes all rubbery in the knees. You can listen it it, and the Debruit remix, below...

Miley Cyrus released a collaborative album with The Flaming Lips over the summer, and last night (10/3) she brought them out to perform the Yoshimi-esque "Karen Don't Be Sad" on the season 41 premiere of Saturday Night Live. She also played "The Twinkle Song" solo and, as she was hosting the show, she gave a monologue that included her singing a tribute to The Dentist Who Killed Cecil The Lion, That Twerp Who Raised The Price of AIDS Medication, Lenny Kravitz's Junk, The Donut That Ariana Grande Licked and more of this summer's important celebrities. Videos of all that, below.
Miley and The Flaming Lips also announced a tour together as Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, which hits six US cities in November and early December. One of those shows is in NYC, happening November 28 at Terminal 5. That's a much smaller NYC show than when she played Barclays Center in 2013 with Sky Ferreira and Icona Pop. Tickets for the whole tour go on sale Wednesday (10/7) at 4 PM local time. All dates are listed below.

As mentioned, BOYTOY have their record release party tonight (10/2) at Good Room. It's also the record release party for Brooklyn psych-rock outfit Savants whose debut album is out today. You can get a taste via the video for "Dream Machine" which stars onetime Golden Triangle bassist Alix Brown. Watch it below.
In addition to tonight's show, Savants are also playing CMJ, also at Good Room on October 13 with Tall Juan, Surfbort, Scholars, Worthless, Navy Gangs, Acid Dad, Casey Hopkins Duo, Gods and Watermelon Sugar. No advance tickets for that show as of now.

As always, there's a ton of metal happening right under everyone's nose, so now that it's October, let's round up some of the scary stuff. Over at Invisible Oranges, you can find a bunch of it, like this just-premiered new album by Aevangelist, Enthrall to the Void of Death, which is being released on 20 Buck Spin. Its an atmospheric, knotty, potentially overwhelming piece of death metal. It showcases enough reverb to choke a horse, and it is streaming below. Aevangelist don't have tour dates as of yet, but they are playing California Deathfest in Oakland on October 10 (we'll talk more about this later).
IO is also streaming the new album from Seattle's Serial Hawk, which is called Searching For Light. It's a groovy hunk of doom metal with a strong Om bent reflected in its bass playing that I would definitely recommend. Serial Hawk are currently on tour and will be playing NYC on October 11 at The Acheron, where they'll open for Jucifer along with It's Not Night: It's Space. Tickets for that show are on sale now. LP stream below.
This is but the tip of the iceberg on IO. Today editor Joseph Schafer published his editor's picks for September, which include a lengthy and fascinating consideration of the new Pope Francis jam, and are generally a great way to find under-the-radar metal (the new Dalla Nebbia LP, in particular, is an absolute gem). Along the lines of obscure gems, IO also recently published a Three part series on the history of South Korean heavy metal and hardcore punk, which is likewise fascinating stuff and is basically the definition of "worth a read."
IO writers also make a habit of appreciating classic albums when the occasion of an anniversary arises. On the main page alone, there are great re-assessments and celebrations of Judas Priest's now 25-year-old Painkiller, Obituary's equivalently-aged death metal masterpiece Nola, now a member of the two-decade club.
Speaking of Down, member Phil Anselmo's Housecore Horror festival is coming up. Mor than on a minute, but first some other exciting fall and winter metal festivals that are on the horizon. This weekend (October 3-4), Saint Vitus will play host to the 3rd annual NY Deathfest. The lineup features Ringworm, Gutalax, Disgorgement, Soils of Fate, Dead Infection, and many more. You can get tickets here.
For you west-coast deathfest enthusiasts, Oakland will be the site of this year's California Deathfest on October 9-11, which features not only Aevangelist but also a bunch of amazing bands like Noothgrush, Infest, Ghoul, Impaled, Autopsy, Lycus, Loss, Bolzer, and Immolation. Three-day passes and Saturday tickets (which, sadly, is Autopsy day) are sold out, but you can still get tickets for Friday and Sunday now.
November brings Martyrdoom to Saint Vitus. We've already discussed this, but consider this a reminder that the lineup is top-shelf (Necrophobic, Kommandant, Black Anvil, Blood Incantation, Bell Witch, etc.) and that tickets are on sale now.
And to finally bring things back to Anselmo, the Pantera/Down/Superjoint mastermind's own Housecore Horror Festival looms on the horizon. It takes place in San Antonio at The Aztec Theater On November 12-15, with a horrifyingly good lineup that has added King Diamond, Exodus and Claudio Simonetta's Goblin (who will be live-scoring Dawn of the Dead, which, yes please) to the already stacked roster of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Eyehategod, Zombi, Crowbar, Corrosion of Conformity, Yob, Negative Approach, Nails, Ghoul, Cripple Bastards, and many more. On top of all this there is a "second stage" that appears in very small font on the flyer but will include excellent bands like Black Breath (whose Slaves Beyond Death also premiered at IO and is an early contender for metal album of the year), War Master, Disfigured, Aggravator and more. Tickets for the whole thing are on sale now.
There are also a whole bunch of great tours coming through NYC in the next month, most of which we've discussed already. KEN mode bring their tour with Child Bite behind their not-quite metal album Success to bear on NYC, playing the Acheron on October 9 (tickets). And later, Extortion and Full of Hell bring their tour to The Acheron on October 17 for a midnight show (tickets).
Over at Saint Vitus, tours will be welcomed from the likes of Goatsnake, whose new album is great and who will play NYC on October 15 with BIG/BRAVE and YDI (tickets). On October 21 the stacked tour of Kylesa, Inter Arma and Indian Handcrafts will weigh in (tickets). And then, on October 22, Bongzilla! (tickets).
Below, you can find streams for Aevangelist and Serial Hawk, as well as the full lineup for NY Deathfest and an updated lineup for Housecore.

Carb on Carb
Carb On Carb is the New Zealand duo of guitarist/vocalist Nicole Gaffney and drummer/vocalist James Stuteley. They put out their self-titled album earlier this year, which is a solid record of '90s-style emo/punk and often has a strong a feminist bent, as song titles like "The War On Men" and "Phenomenal Ladies" make pretty clear. It's a good album, especially for anyone with an affinity for Polyvinyl Records. You can stream the whole thing below and download a copy (name your price) at bandcamp.
Carb On Carb are currently on their first-ever US tour, which hits CMJ, The Fest, and more. Their CMJ show is the New Zealand showcase at Baby's All Right on 10/13 with Marlon Williams, Anthonie Tonnon and Lontalius. That's free with RSVP.
Carb on Carb play two NYC shows right before CMJ too. The first is a matinee at ABC No Rio on October 10 with Torch Runner, Archie Alone and Control (more info); and the second is Palisades on October 11 with PUNT, Talking Dog, Terrible Terrible and Oh, Oh, Ecstasy (tickets). All dates are listed below.
Speaking of Marlon Williams, who's also on the New Zealand showcase, he just signed to Dead Oceans (Tallest Man On Earth, Phosphorescent), and will put out a new album on the label in early 2016. Ahead of that, he released the single "Strange Things" this week. Video for that, and his tour dates (including a bunch of other CMJ shows), below.
The Get Up Kids' 20th anniversary tour just keeps getting longer. Since we last spoke, they added a second Chicago show, as well as Kansas City and Brooklyn dates too.
The Brooklyn show happens December 10 at The Bell House with Into It. Over It. and Rozwell Kid. That's right in between NYC's Irving Plaza (12/9) (tickets) and NJ's Starland Ballroom (12/12) (tickets) shows with the same openers. Tickets for the Bell House show go on sale Thursday (10/8) at noon.
Updated dates are listed, with the full-set video of their recent Santa Ana show, below...
Brooklyn psych-garage trio Las Rosas are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album, but will be taking a break for a fall tour that starts next week, including a few dates opening for Shannon & the Clams. In the middle of their tour, they'll be back in Brooklyn to play Alphaville on Halloween. Details on that spooky show have yet to emerge, stay tuned.
All tour dates -- including runs with Cool Ghouls and Fletcher C. Johnson -- are listed, along with a stream of last year's "Ms. America" single, below.

J. Fernandez has shared the video for "Between the Channels" which is from this year's fine, underrated Many Levels of Laughter. Jerzy Rose directed the video which follows a few social situations in slow motion. There's a haircut, cereal being eaten, nudes painted, a lot of crying, and one particularly sad shot of a stuffed panda toy lying face down in a corner. It all fits the melancholy vibe of Fernandez's song quite well. Check it out below.
You can catch J. Fernandez on tour with Detroit's Turn to Crime starting next week, and he'll be in NYC for CMJ, including the Inland Empire showcase at Cake Shop on October 16 with Turn to Crime, as well as The Gotobeds, Eaters, Tweens and Spray Paint (tickets); and Union Pool on October 17 with Tuff Sunshine, Christian Lee Hutson, Shana Falana and Stolen Jars.
All dates are listed below.

Goth/industrial legends Killing Joke will release their new album Pylon on October 23 via Spinefarm, the followup to 2012's MMXII. Now, as promised, they've announced a 2016 North American tour in support of that, with newer band The Soft Moon opening (a well-matched double bill).
The tour hits NYC on February 13 at Irving Plaza. Tickets will be on sale soon.
So far the band released two songs from the album, "I Am the Virus" and "Euphoria." Listen to both, with the list of tour dates, below...
