Tickets for that show are still available, and she's now expanded her tour to include more dates including another chance to see the Rilo Kiley singer somewhere a little smaller and a little outside of NYC a day later (11/6) at The Space at Westbury. Tickets for this newly-added Long Island show go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon.

The Antlers at Rough Trade in June (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Antlers

Producer/musician Daniel Lanois (known for work with Brian Eno, U2, Neil Young, Peter Gabriel and others) has teamed up with ANTI- Records to curate a concert called ANTI-Thesis happening as a one-off in NYC on November 10 at Brooklyn Masonic Temple. Lanois himself will be performing, as will fellow ANTI- artists The Antlers (who have a great new album out this year) and Tinariwen (ditto). Joining them as a special guest will be cult artist Lonnie Holley. Lanois says, "It's a dream come true to welcome artists from different walks of life to share one stage. Let this be the beginning of something that should never stop, music is the universal language." Tickets go on sale Friday (9/19).

Daniel Lanois is also releasing a new album, Flesh And Machine, on October 28 via ANTI-. He's got a video for that album's single "Opera" out now, and also has other November tour dates with Lonnie Holley. The Antlers and Tinariwen have other dates as well. All are listed, with the "Opera" video, below...

"Chromeo turning Central Park into a dance party rn" - @chelawhita

"Saw @chromeo last night in Central Park. One of the most fun nights I've had in so long! Danced my bum off" - @jaglever

Chromeo / Big Freedia @ Central Park Summerstage 9/12/2014
Chromeo
Big Freedia

It was a long wait for Chromeo, but after an agonizing 30 minutes, white lights poured out from the stage in every direction, and with seemingly no transitional moment at all, Dave 1's guitar wailed from between the LEDs. Without warning, the concert was in full swing.

Dave 1 and P-Thugg are, if you'll excuse the phrase, groove-machines. DJ set or fully live, the two produce a sound that bounces across the stage, through the crowd, and right back to them again, forever fueling a cycle of funky, self-sustaining energy. [Village Voice]

Canadian dance-duo Chromeo brought their groove party tour to Central Park Summerstage with some help from New Orleans bounce music pioneer and twerkaholic Big Freedia on Friday (9/12), part of the tour. Playing tracks from this year's White Women and favorites like "Needy Girl," "Bonafide Lovin'" and "Sexy Socialite," plus a stunning light show, the duo certainly got the crowd moving. Pics from the show are in this post.

Chromeo recently earned a spot as a short-list nominee for this year's Polaris Prize competition alongside stiff competition from the likes of Arcade Fire, Drake, Mac Demarco and more. The set on Saturday was one of their last of the summer, only hitting Austin City Limits in October before getting off the road for a bit.

Opener Big Freedia, whose Fuse reality series just got picked up for two more seasons, gave a shout out from the Central Park stage to fellow bounce artist Nicky Da B who died earlier this month. NYC will more of Big Freedia on October 4 at Glasslands with Friendly Ghost and a DJ set from Le Chev. Tickets are on sale. In other news, look for Big Freedia's memoirs to be published in 2015.

Tim Fite

Brooklyn artist Tim Fite is releasing a new album, iBeenHACKED (not a reference to the U2 album) (or the name of a giant corporation), on October 7. He describes it as "a music/art project satirizing and celebrating the highs and lows of digital culture, examining the ways technology and connectivity are hacking our daily lives, and altering the codes that we live by." The project will include:

• a limited edition series of hand made glass "Phonies."
• a Brooklyn storefront turned into a giant smart-phone.
• alternative digital-music monetization strategies such as the sale of advertising space and personal shout outs in songs.
• a body of songs that are wickedly insightful and often laugh out loud funny - wrestling with subject matter ranging from the at nauseum action of online "liking" ("Like"), smart-phone addiction ("Check Yo Cell"), the cult of macintosh products ("Big Mac"), the binge-watching epidemic (4 Seasons), and plenty more.
Its newest single, "Like," is just as satirical as you'd expect, and it premieres in this post. You can listen below.

Tim's also got a European tour planned with Berlin's wild Bonaparte, who he's played NYC with before. All of those dates are listed, with the new song stream and album trailer, below...

Angel Olsen @ MHOW in May (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Angel

BrooklynVegan is very excited to be presenting the first American show by UK duo Sleaford Mods, which will happen in NYC at The Wick on November 29. Supporting bill is still TBA but tickets are on sale now. Here's what we wrote about the 'Mods earlier this year:

Somewhere between punk, hiphop and spoken word lie UK duo Sleaford Mods. (They are neither mods, nor from Sleaford. They're from Nottingham.) Jason Williamson spews a tapestry of bile over low-tech, muscular backing by Andrew Fearn, the result is somewhere between The Fall, McClusky, Happy Mondays and John Cooper Clark. The pair have been making music for eight years now but really started to get attention with last year's terrific Austerity Dogs and look to go even wider with the just released Divide and Exit. On it Sleaford Mods are in full rebellion mode. Who against? Whadda you got? Like Protomartyr's Joe Casey, Williamson hold equal contempt for the rich, conservatives, liberals, phonies in general, idiots, "jolly fuckers," etc all via a nonstop torrent of brilliantly, hilariously profane lyrics.
You can stream Divide and Exit, as well as previous releases and a few videos and a short Quietus documentary about the band, in this post.

The Wick show is Sleaford Mods' only North American date at the moment but they're on tour in the UK and Europe throughout the fall. All dates are listed, along with videos and streams, below...

Manchester Orchestra at Lollapalooza 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
MO

Manchester Orchestra put out their grungy new album Cope earlier this year, and they've now followed it with a stripped-down version of all the songs called Hope which is already available on iTunes and will be out physically on November 18 via Loma Vista. They're also going on a stripped-down tour in support of it which brings them to more intimate venues than their last tour, including NYC's The Bell House on December 9, a much smaller place than their Terminal 5 show in May. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Chris Staples opens all dates.

Full list of dates below...

Alt rock vet Mark Lanegan will release his new album, Phantom Radio, on October 21 via Flooded Soil/Vagrant. The first single from the record is "Floor Of The Ocean" which might supprise Screaming Trees fans who haven't checked with Mark in a while. It's heavy on synths and drum machines, with a little Peter Hook style bass in there as well. You can stream that below.

Mark will be touring this fall, and he'll play NYC at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall on November 8. Tickets go on sale Friday (9/19) at 10 AM.

You can also hear Mark on the new Stooges rerecordings that guitarist James Williamson is putting together. All tour dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...

APTBS @ MHOW, 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
A Place to Bury Strangers

Austin Psych Fest is one of the cooler annual conclaves for headtrip rock n' roll, and they're bringing a bit of that flavor to NYC during CMJ for a showcase at Rough Trade on October 25 with A Place to Bury Strangers, White Fence, Moon Duo, King Gizzard & the Wizard Lizard, Wampire, Bo Ningen, Spires, The Wytches and The Paperhead. It's a 6 PM start with "special guests to be announced." Tickets go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon. Flyer for the show is below.

This is the only current date for A Place To Bury Strangers, though it seems likely that the band will play Death by Audio before it closes, seeing how frontman Oliver Ackerman runs the successful Death by Audio pedal company that's housed in the back of the venue (which will be locating to new digs) and if anybody's the DbA house band, it's APTBS.

Nashville's The Paperhead, meanwhile, just announced they'll be releasing Africa Avenue this fall via Trouble in Mind, their first new music in two years. Bo Ningen will be at CMJ following their tour with Kasabian. White Fence and King Gizzard have other CMJ shows together too.

Moon Duo also play with The Horrors at Stage 48 on October 21 (tickets), though most of their tour together was postponed, and then they'll play with The Kills at Bowery Ballroom on 10/23 (sold out but you can try to get in with a CMJ badge if you're gonna have one).

Lightning at the Door album art
atw

Nashville's psych-rockers All Them Witches are giving their album, Lightning at the Door, a proper release today (9/16). It's a heady brew of swirling tones and heavy blue-eyed blues rock. The tracks also have that bracing spontaneity of crack improvisers. Says singer/bassist Michael Parks, Jr. regarding their approach: "In terms of the music, we're so loose, and that's where the magic comes from. There's no controlling factor. We do exactly what comes naturally. We go in a room without any idea about what will happen, get in the groove, and it works. That's supernatural." You can check out a couple of its tracks below.

All Them Witches are currently on tour with crushing doomers Windhand. This Saturday's (9/20) show at NYC's Saint Vitus with Ilsa and Polygamyst is on the very near horizon. That show is also very nearly sold out according to Saint Vitus's Facebook: "If you want tickets to Windhand, act soon. There are less than 30 left." Tickets are, indeed, available now.

Updated dates are listed, with the song streams, below...
