Take One Car

Upstate NY post-hardcore band Take One Car have been regulars on their local scene for years now. They self released two albums, 2009's When the Ceiling Meets the Floor and 2012's It's Going To Be a Nice Day, and more recently signed to TWIABP co-founder Derrick Shanholtzer's label, Broken World Media, who will release their third album, Everyone You Know Is Here Right Now, next week (3/31). You can pre-order yours.

The band's talk-singing style suggests they may have listened to a lot of early mewithoutYou and La Dispute, and like those bands, Take One Car are in dead-serious mode the whole time. You can listen for yourself -- the full album stream premieres below.

Take One Car have two shows coming up at the moment, a release party on April 18 in Kent, NY and the sold-out Broken World Fest.

Brooklyn trio EZTV making very hooky, jangly, powerpop, very much in the tradition of '80s artists like the dB's, Tommy Keene or Let's Active who were, in turn, inspired by The Rasberries and Big Star. The band have signed with Captured Tracks who will release a 7" single, the Jarvis Taveniere-recorded "Dust in the Sky," on April 28. You can stream that below.

EZTV play around their hometown a lot and have a number of shows coming up. They'll open for their Captured Tracks labelmates Mourn on Sunday (3/29) at Baby's All Right (tickets), then Friday, April 3 at Cake Shop with Connections and St. Lennox. They'll be back at Baby's All Right on April 11 to play with UK band Happyness (tickets).

For Ohio band Connections (who played BV-SXSW 2014), the Cake Shop show will be their NYC debut.

EZTV will also perform live on WFMU's "Prove it All Right" this Saturday (3/28) which airs from 9 PM - midnight. They've got non-NYC dates coming up, too and all are listed below.

Dead Heavens

Walter Schreifels' new-ish garage/psych band Dead Heavens have had no lack of hometown NYC shows lately, and they've currently got three more coming up. First is their Saint Vitus show on April 16 with Philly riffers Ruby the Hatchet (which Sweden's Blues Pills unfortunately dropped off), and then they play two nights at Bowery Electric, May 14 and 21. The first of those is with opener Slonk Donkerson and the second is with Slavve. Tickets for the Vitus and Bowery Electric shows are on sale now.

Those Bowery Electric shows happen just before they head across the country to open for the reunited Rocket From the Crypt and The Bronx in California (tickets). That's one of three upcoming dates for RFTC, the other two being Houston's Free Press Summer Fest and Montreal's Heavy Montreal.

Stream Dead Heavens' recent "History In My Hands" / "36 Chambers" single below...

Also in celebration of the vinyl release, Hallelujah the Hills are playing a few East Coast shows, including Brooklyn's The Bell House on Friday (3/27) with a opening solo set from Adam Schatz. Tickets are on sale. The band have a few other dates and all are listed below.

UK band Virginia Wing have a new video for "A Complex Outline" from last year's terrific, Broadcast-y Measures of Joy. It was filmed on a landfill site in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire in one day by Frankie Pike and Misha Hering, who also recorded their album. In it, singer Alice Merida Richards drags a parachute (filled with something) around the hillside, starts a's all ambiguous and creepy. Kind of like the song. The video makes its premiere in this post and you can watch it below.

In other news, Measures of Joy is being reissued in a deluxe edition featuring two-color vinyl with added bonus tracks. It's out May 11 and you can pre-order it here. Virginia Wing are also on tour in Europe, playing Munich tonight with The Notwist, a pretty good double bill. All dates are listed, along with the video, below...

Celebrating folk music from near and far, the Brooklyn Folk Festival showcases 30 bands, workshops, film screenings and contests. Daptone gospel group Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens, country blues and songster multi-instrumentalist Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton, folk legend and songwriter Michael Hurley, old-time fiddle and banjo player Bruce Molsky, fiddle player Frank Fairfield, and intergenerational anti-folk collaborators Peter Stampfel & Jeffrey Lewis are among the performers at this year's Festival, held from April 17-19th.

The seventh annual festival has sold out every year, its attendance growing each time, and has moved to its largest venue to date, St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church, in Brooklyn Heights. Its world-famous stained-glass windows will frame the stage. The Festival is a co-production of The Jalopy Theatre and Down Home Radio. The three-day event has grown each year. This year's partnership with St. Ann's allows for a main stage inside the church, and a second stage for workshops, film screenings and vendors.
Tickets for the 2015 Brooklyn Folk Festival are on sale now. Full schedule below...
