Melbourne's The Stevens pull from a variety of landmark indie rock -- The Clean, Guided by Voices, Pavement -- but don't sound quite like any of them. The band's debut album, The History of Hygiene (on Chapter Music), was produced by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring) and is 24 tracks of lo-to-mid-fi shambly pop perfection. No doubt there is a lot of this type of stuff out there, but The Stevens make superior product, and you can stream the whole album below.
The Stevens were just added to Gonerfest 11's line-up and they'll be touring around North America before they get there. That tour includes three NYC shows: September 10 at Cake Shop with fellow Australians Free Time and Ballroom, then September 11 at Baby's All Right with Limited and headliners Ducktails playing too, and finally Death by Audio on September 14 with San Francisco's Rat Columns. Advance tickets are on sale now for the Baby's All Right show.

Toronto punks PUP recently announced a North American tour surrounding their appearance at The Fest, and it's since been announced that the East Coast run following The Fest will be opened by two fellow Fest bands,
Beach Slang and Chumped. That run includes the NYC show happening on November 7 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for what is now a very stacked triple punk bill are on sale.
UPDATE: Despite what was initially announced, Beach Slang are actually not on the PUP/Chumped tour.
You can catch Chumped and Beach Slang together in NYC though, when Beach Slang's tour with Modern Baseball hits Brooklyn Night Bazaar on September 5 with both Chumped and Crow Bait on the bill. That show is free. As usual, Chumped (who call NYC home) have other local shows too including Friday (8/22) at Saint Vitus with The Sidekicks, Sundials and Dowsing (tickets); August 30 at Rippers in Rockaway Beach with Infinity Hotel; and September 6 at Saint Vitus with Cayetana (tickets). All of their dates are listed below.
Both Chumped and Beach Slang have also announced new EPs. Beach Slang's, Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street, will be out digitally in September and physically in October via Tiny Engines and follows their excellent debut EP from earlier this year. No music released from that yet, but artwork and tracklist can be found below.
Chumped will follow 2013's self-titled EP with That's The Thing Is Like... on September 9 via Anchorless. Like their debut, the new single's lo-fi pop punk is a nostalgia trip back to the '90s, but it also sounds totally fresh today. Fans of Superchunk, The Get Up Kids, early blink-182, or newer bands like Swearin' and Radiator Hospital should check this out. Listen (via Stereogum) below. Chumped's debut LP, Teenage Retirement, is to follow this fall. Stay tuned for more on that.

Hollie Cook's terrific new album, Twice, has been on constant repeat on my stereo all summer. Its breezy vibe, incorporating lovers rock and other classic reggae elements into its lush, string-laden pop sound, probably sounds great any time of year. If you haven't checked it out yet, well you really should, and you can correct that by streaming it in full below.
You can also catch Hollie (whose dad is Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook) live this fall when she embarks on her first American tour (sorry, Canada) which kicks off in NYC at Glasslands on October 13. Tickets for that show go on sale today at 10 AM.

Cheap Girls in Chicago in April (more by Jeff Ryan)

Tickets for the Vitus show will be on sale soon via Ticketfly and tickets for the Asbury Park show go on sale Friday (8/22) at noon.

Will there be more of Faith No More? According to a tweet from the band, maybe:
The Reunion Tour is over; in 2015 things are going to change.The Mike Patton-fronted rockers have played two shows this year, most notably at Black Sabbath's Hyde Park event back in July when they debuted two new songs, "Motherfucker" and "Leader of Men." You can watch video of both songs performed at Faith No More's other date in Gdynia, Poland below. The new stuff development was foreshadowed by this tweet on May 29:

Hey! Stay tuned for more Tweets from Twats!!! The reunion thing was fun, but now it's time to get a little creative. pic.twitter.com/6RBFE7aHbd -- Faith No More (@FaithNoMore) May 30, 2014I hope you didn't scroll to that pic while in the bathroom. Anyway, until actual word comes down that there is album in the works, the Faith No More continues to add more fest engagements. The most recent has penciled in a date on their 2015 calendar for Australia's Soundwave Festival. The schedule haven't been nailed down (four days total -- Feb 22, 23, 28, and March 1. Four cities -- Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane), but as you can see in the flyer below, they're positioned as headliners atop a weird/interesting collection of artists including Mayhem, Godflesh, and Judas Priest (who are still set to tour the US soon), along with, uh, New Found Glory, Slash, and Papa Roach. Get your whiplash neck braces ready now, Australians.
In other Mike Patton news, Tomahawk have released a video for "South Paw" featuring sock puppets (*pours a bag of tube socks out for Sifl and Olly*). And Mr. Bungle's catalog will be getting repressed on vinyl next year. Of course, Patton's Mr. Bungle bandmate, Trey Spruance will be touring with his Secret Chief 3 in October, including two NYC shows: October 21 at La Poisson Rouge and October 22 at Saint Vitus.
The two new Faith no More songs, the Tomahawk video, and the Soundwave Festival poster appear below.
Little Pete & Polaris (and Syd and Marshall, among others)
As mentioned, The Adventures of Pete & Pete theme song artists Polaris are playing Hammerstein Ballroom on October 9, as part of a New York Super Week event chronicling the early days of kids TV network Nickelodeon. For those who aren't interested in the panel discussion (or the Doug songs) aspect and just want to sing "Does your dog bite?" even though they know full well the actual lyric is "Don't ya talk back," Polaris will be playing another NYC show, this one happening at Knitting Factory on November 21. Tickets go on sale Tuesday (8/26). All we can say is...PIPE!
Natural Child at Death By Audio in 2012 (more by Devan Council
Nashville's Natural Child released Dancin' With Wolves via Burger back in February, which furthers the band's take on party-friendly southern-fried rock. You can check out the recent video for "Firewater Liquor" below. No strangers to the road (and all good musicians), Natural Child will be heading out on tour this fall, stopping to play Baby's All Right on November 21. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (8/22) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.

The Hotelier at Webster Hall on August 4, 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Connecticut's The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die have a busy fall ahead of them. They've got a live LP of a recent Audiotree session up for pre-order, are putting out a full-length collaboration with spoken-word artist Chris Zizzamia at some point, have been in the studio for their next standard full length (pics and vids on the band's Instagram) and are now heading out on an extensive tour with Massachusetts' excellent The Hotelier (who they played a one-off with earlier this year).
The wonderfully-scrappy Rozwell Kid and Posture & The Grizzly (who are both signed to Broken World Media, Derrick from TWIABP's label) round out the tour's stellar bill. The only date near NYC that's currently announced is a Hamden, CT show happening at The Space on October 25, but TWIABP hinted at a NYC date being announced soon and there's a break in their schedule right before that CT show which also happens to be CMJ week in NYC. Tickets for the CT show go on sale Friday (8/22) at noon. All dates are listed below.

CunninLynguists' new album art (not Smash Mouth's)
Kentucky rap crew CunninLynguists followed 2011's Oneirology LP earlier this year with a new mixtape. It's the third in their Strange Journey mixtape series, and thus titled Strange Journey Volume Three. It's got a handful of great guests including Del The Funy Homosapien, Aesop Rock, Murs, Blu, Psalm One and Masta Ace. This fall, they'll be heading out on tour in support of the release with J-Live (who's also on the mixtape), stopping in NYC to play The Studio at Webster Hall on November 13. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
