It's happening! After a six long hiatus, Brooklyn's Candiria have announced a return. For our younger fans, Candiria were incredibly influential in the late 90s, implementing facets of jazz-fusion and rap into their songs. The band members decided to "move on with their lives" a few years ago, with drummer Ken Schalk moving to the other side of the country, but have since started making music again.
Metal Injection wrote the above about Brooklyn's genre-defying Candiria last year. The band since played their first NYC reunion show at Black N Blue Bowl in May and then another at Afropunk Festival this past weekend.

Now, Candiria have scheduled their first non-festival hometown show, happening September 27 at Saint Vitus with Netherlands, Go Deep and Primitive Weapons. Tickets are on sale now.

Watch a video of their full Afropunk set, below...

Terry band Australia

In the continuing competition of Melbourne musicians to see who can be in the most number of bands, we have Terry, a four-piece that features Al Montfort (of Total Control and Dick Diver, who were both recently in NYC), Zephyr Pavey (Eastlink, Total Control, Russell Street Bombings), Amy Hill (Constant Mongrel, School Of Radiant Living), and Xanthe Waite (Mick Harvey Band). Their debut single features three doses of shambly Television Personalities/Swell Maps style earworm indie rock. You can listen to "Talk About Terry" below.

Miami's Cavity, the '90s/early '00s sludge metal band that included future Floor / Torche members Steve Brooks and Juan Montoya and future Black Cobra member Jason Landrian, half-reunited at a Black Cobra show in their hometown last year, and now a full reunion is planned. This lineup won't actually include any of those three members, but it will include Eduardo Alejandro Matus, Daniel Gorostiaga, Rene Barge, Rick Smith (Torche), and Ryan Weinstein (The Cairo Gang and Mikal Cronin's band).

They'll make their first East Coast appearance in over a decade this fall, and it happens at NYC's Saint Vitus on September 25, presented by Noisey. Also on the bill is Genocide Pact and Sunrot. Tickets are on sale now.

Sudakistan Sweden

Sudakistan are a quartet who are mostly South American that are currently residing in Stockholm, Sweden and make the kind of party-friendly garage rock that Scandinavia does so well. After a series of well-received singles, the band are set to release their debut album, Caballo Negro, on October 30 via PNKSLM Recordings. (Pre-orders are up now.) It was produced by Joakim Åhlund (Les Big Byrd, Caesars, Teddybears) and PNKSLM founder Luke Reilly, and we've got the premiere of its demented lead single, "Mundo Mamon." It's fun stuff and you can listen below.

If you happen to be in Stockholm this week, Sudakistan play the city's Debaser Slussen on Wednesday (8/26) with UK band The Castilians.

Swedish electronic duo Korallreven (one-half of which is The Radio Dept's Daniel Tjäder) have a new single, "Here in Iowa." It's also their last. They say, "It's been magic, but there is a time for everything and an end to everything too, also with Korallreven." It's a nice goodbye, sticking to their patented balaeric dreampop sound and you can listen to it below.

Korallreven will be playing two farewell shows, one in Sweden and one in NYC as part of Cascine Records' fifth anniversary party at The Wythe Hotel on September 17 with Chad Valley, Lemonade, Yumi Zouma, and Cuushe. Tickets are still available.

In related news, Yumi Zouma are reissuing their two EPs as one vinyl record via Cascine on September 18.
