Porches with Greta Kline @ Baby's All Right (via beccaliebert)
Porches played their first of two nights at Baby's All Right last night (10/17), part of the the Baby's ongoing, pre-CMJ one year birthday party. The band were also celebrating their new Terrible Records single which you can pre-order on vinyl and listen to now below. The new song "Forgive" features a guest appearance by Greta Kline who also plays in Porches and leads her own project Frankie Cosmos who opened last night, but switches the order and headlines Baby's after Porches play tonight (10/18). After Frankie Cosmos, you can catch a set by Cashmere Cat who was added to the venue's schedule today.
If you can't make it to Baby's, Porches also added a Saturday night CMJ show at the soon-closing Death By Audio. The Arbutus/Terrible/JMC Aggregatee showcase also features sets by Tops (who played the even-later show at Baby's last night), Lydia Ainsworth and Regal Degal. The flyer for that is with the two new Porches songs below...

Dublin's The #1s (aka The Number Ones) put out their self-titled debut LP over the summer via Deranged Records (once home to Fucked Up and White Lung). The band, who count Angel Olsen tourmate Cian Nugent as a member, write sharp late '70s-style power pop tunes but deliver with the rawness of '60s garage rock. If you're into either of those things, this record should hit right away. Check it out in full, below.
The #1s will be in NYC for two shows that are just around the corner. First, they play Cake Shop on Saturday (10/18) opening for The Paul Collins Beat (Paul's band The Nerves is likely an influence on The #1s), with Club for Growth and Now People on the bill too. That's $10 at the door to get in. After that, they play Grand Victory on Monday (10/20) as headliners with Miracle Sweepstakes, Henry Schiller and Garcia Peoples opening. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
UPDATE: They also stick around for CMJ and currently have two shows scheduled. The first is the YVYNYL showcase at Union Pool on Tuesday with Lydia Ainsworth, Heat and J Ferndandez (tickets); and the second is the Music of Ireland showcase at The Delancey on Friday (10/24) with September Girls, Dott, Ham Sandwich, Sisters and Le Galaxie.
The only other show we're currently aware of his a Halloween show in Dublin. All dates are listed, with the LP stream and a video, below...
Australia's King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have a new album on the way, I'm in Your Mind Fuzz, next month via Castle Face and the band recently shared another song off the album.

As mentioned King Gizzard will be in NYC for a whole bunch of CMJ shows, including BrooklynVegan's free Friday (10/25) day party at Baby's All Right. Protomartyr are also playing that and the rest of the lineup will be announced very soon (we swear). Here's their entire CMJ schedule:

Chicago trio Moritat have been around since 2008, having released their debut album in 2012. With an emphasis on woozy/warped keyboard sounds and syncopated krauty rhythms, it's off-kilter pop that owes a little to their hometown's post-rock heritage. The band are set to release the High Plus Tight EP early next year, and that record has an interesting backstory. The band's shared space was burglarized early in their career, with thieves making off with all their gear and recording equipment, including all traces of what was to be their first record. Then last year, they found a CD-R under a carpet with those seemingly-lost recordings on it. The band polished them up and here we are. We've got the premiere of "Visits" from the EP and you can stream it below.
While Moritat don't have any tour plans announced yet, they do have a couple Chicago shows coming up. Those dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...

Pharoah (the NJ sludge band, not the Philly power metal band) have been releasing singles and EPs for a few years now, and they're finally set to release their debut full length, Negative Everything, on Halloween via A389. We've got the premiere of the album's new single, "Dusted," which brings sludge back to its roots of when hardcore bands started learning Black Sabbath riffs. Fans of earlier Neurosis would probably dig this too. Check it out below.
Pharaoh were part of this week's first round lineup announce for their label A389's 11th Anniversary Bash (they played last year too), which also includes Haymaker, Weekend Nachos, Noisem and more. Pharoah will also be on tour with their labelmates Homewrecker this month and next. That tour doesn't hit NYC but will be nearby for a Montclair, NJ show on 11/20 at The Meatlocker with Eternal Sleep and a Long Island show on 11/23 at Even Flow.
All dates are listed, with the new song stream, below...
As discussed, the Bouncing Souls 'Home for the Holidays' shows happen this year from December 26-28 at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park with The Van Pelt, None More Black and more as openers. Tickets for all three are still available.
Now the afterparties have been announced, and those have pretty great lineups too. Those all happen at Asbury Lanes with 11 PM doors right after each Souls show, and admission is $8 or $5 with a Souls ticket. The first one has Bouncing Souls guitarist Pete Steinkopf's other band Smalltalk and Philly post-punks Dark Blue (mems Clockcleaner, Paint It Black), with Dark Blue members Andy Nelson and Sharkey DJing. Dark Blue also play a free 2 PM show at Rough Trade NYC on 10/26
Then night 2 has the recently reactivated Spraynard (who just opened for Lifetime in Asbury Park) and Philly indie rockers Cayetana (who also play the official BV CMJ showcase), with Miss TK and Mitylion (Ari Katz of Lifetime) DJing.
Each day there's also a charity fundraiser at noon at Neptune Tattooville in Neptune, NJ and there's also a Punk Rock Flea Market on the Saturday (12/27) at 11 AM at Convention Hall in Asbury Park with "The Pete" DJing. The flea market is free with a Saturday Souls ticket.
Check out some videos/streams of the afterparty bands below...
Brooklyn duo Jack & Eliza released their charming No Wonders EP last month, conjuring up early '60s pop like Ricky Nelson or The Everly Brothers. You can stream the whole thing via Rdio and we've got the premiere of the video for "Floodlights" in this post. Directed by Chloe Pang, its impressionistic asthetic fits the song nicely. You can watch below.
Jack & Eliza will be playing CMJ, with four shows to see:
Tuesday, 10/21 @ Pianos (10:30 PM) | Banner's CMJ ShowcaseFlyer for their CMJ shows, and the new video, below...
