As mentioned, Belle and Sebastian will release their new album, Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, on January 20 via Matador. The album's first single, "The Party Line," definitely hints that the album's title may point to the direction of the album, as it's the grooviest thing they've released since "Your Cover's Blown." The band just released the single's video, directed LeBlanc + Cudmore, which details a a night out dancing that gets more surreal as it goes. Check it out below.
You'll have plenty of time to digest the new album before Belle & Sebastian make it to NYC for their show at Radio City Music Hall on June 10. Tickets are still available. The band have added a lot more dates to their busy schedule, including a few North American shows in March and April. Might they also be playing SXSW too? All are listed, along with "The Party Line" video, below...

The Pop Group @ ATP NY 2011 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
These abrasive, militant British punks rage against racism, oppression, hunger and anything else that's a world problem; as usual, there's no solution, only anger. The seminal Bristol band synthesizes Beefheartian structures and tribal dance beats to create a didactic soundtrack that barely lets you breathe. Their two primary albums are alternately brilliant and intolerable, with exhortatory songs like "Feed the Hungry," "Rob a Bank" and "Communicate." - [Trouser Press]The original incarnation of postpunks The Pop Group barely managed to stay together three years before splintering, but leaving behind influential tracks like "She Is Beyond Good and Evil" and "We Are All Prostitutes." Most of the original-era members of the band, including singer Mark Stewart, guitarist Gareth Saeger, bassist Dan Cantis and drummer Bruce Smith (who was also in The Slits), got back together in 2010 and played ATP NY in 2011 and have been gigging ever since. A new LP is in the works.
As mentioned, The Pop Group will be coming to SXSW 2015 which will be part of the band's first-ever North American tour which includes two NYC stops: Rough Trade on March 16 and Bowery Ballroom on March 17. Tickets for both NYC shows go on sale at noon on Friday (11/21) with an AmEx presale for the Bowery Ballroom show beginning noon on Wednesday (11/19).

Geoff Rickly's had a busy year with a new United Nations album and two singles with his band No Devotion. He's already set to kick off next year in style with a one-off solo show in Atlantic City on January 3, the first Saturday of 2015, at the Dante Hall Theater of The Arts. Opening that show is I Am the Avalanche/Movielife singer Vinnie Caruana and Back and Forth singer Matty Carlock. Tickets are on sale now, and there's a complimentary afterparty for the 21+ at The Boneyard. Show flyer below.

He's also on the Boston and Silver Spring stops and you can still get tickets to all three.
A few days before the Webster show his band I Am the Avalanche plays a previously discussed NYC one-off at MHOW on Friday, December 26. Since we last spoke, it's been announced that IATA will be joined by the great newer Long Island punk band Iron Chic and The Gaslight Anthem's pals The Scandals. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Iron Chic also have a new split 7" with Low Culture (mems The Marked Men) on Dead Broke (Mike from Iron Chic's label) and Dirt Cult (Chris from Low Culture's label). Check out a stream of each band from that split (via Noisey) below...
John Mulaney's sitcom has not done so well in the ratings. FOX recently swapped it and Bob's Burgers' timeslots on Sunday, putting Mulaney in the 7:30 PM position which is often preempted by late-running sports. Has anyone watched it? On the bright side John is still a super funny guy and continues to tour. He's got an East Coast run this month that skips NYC but he'll be here next year, playing Carnegie Hall on March 14. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (11/18) at 11 AM.
