Dorthia

Dorthia Cottrell, frontwoman for Richmond doomers Windhand, is a week away from releasing her debut self-titled solo album (due 3/3 via Forcefield), and she's now put out another of its songs, a cover of Gram Parsons' "A Song For You." That's an apt choice, considering her previous singles were indebted to early '70s folk, a style Dorthia's as convincing at as metal. Check it out below.

She's also announced a March record release show happening in her hometown, followed by a full solo tour which begins in NYC on April 29 at Saint Vitus. TIckets for that show will be on sale soon. Most dates are with Nate Hall, but no opener announced yet for the NYC show.

All dates are listed, with the new song stream, below...

Juan Maclean

The Juan Maclean, who released the terrific In a Dream can be seen DJing regularly here in NYC (and elsewhere), but its been a long time since they've performed live. Specifically, six years since they last toured. They'll be rectifying that this spring when the four-piece band version of The Juan Maclean goes on tour. That trek kicks off with a six-show NYC residency featuring three nights at Cameo on April 16 - 17 and then Union Pool on April 23 - 25. Tickets to all six NYC shows are on sale now.

Meanwhile, in related DFA news, Museum of Love (LCD's Pat Mahoney + Dennis "Jee Day" McNany) play Bowery Ballroom on Friday (2/27) with Oneida and Blondes on the bill as well. Tickets are still available but if you'd like to go for free, we're giving a pair away.

Contest details, and the list of all Juan Maclean tour dates, below...

After having only two songs available to listen for the last two years or so, Montreal's SEOUL have finally announced details of their debut album. It's titled I Become A Shade and will be out June 9 via Last Gang/Grand Jury. They've also shared the LP's first single, the sumptuous "The Line" which is a great example of their brand of dreampop. Groovy and laid back (but not boring) it's like an update of the hushed pop Scotland's The Blue Nile made in the '80s and '90s. Stream it below.

As you may know, SEOUL will be in NYC this week for a show at Baby's All Right on Thursday (2/26) with Calvin Love and Buscabulla. Tickets are still available. The band will be back in the States for SXSW and will tour with UK group Ballet School after, including another NYC show, this time at Knitting Factory on April 18. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/27) at 10 AM.

All tour dates are listed, along with the new single stream and a teaser video, below...

TEEN

Carpark Records, home of Toro Y Moi, Speedy Ortiz, TEEN, Young Magic, and many more, is celebrating its 16th anniversary this year which means it's old enough to drive. For the occasion, they're releasing a super sweet basketball themed compilation on May 26 featuring 19 bands from their current roster. Most of the songs were recorded specifically for the comp (and are about hoops), including TEEN's "Dylan and Chong Playing Basketball" which makes its premiere in this post. You can stream it, and check out a Toro Y Moi vine, below.

The vinyl will be a picture disc limited to 600 copies, and sales of all versions of the album benefit the Little Kids Rock charity. Preorders are available. Full tracklist and artwork are below.

There will also be a few Carpark anniversary shows, including one at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on March 6 with Lexie Mountain Boys, Greg Davis, Greys, Chandos, Ear Pwr, Safety Scissors, Adventure, Jimmy Whispers, and DJs Young Magic and Montag. Tickets for that show are on sale. There will be one in DC, plus one in Austin during SXSW as well. Details on those are below.

Guts Club

Brooklyn folk singer Lindsey Baker, aka Guts Club, released her debut album The Arm Wresting Tournament earlier this month, and we've now got the premiere of the video for its track "Trunkie." The song feels indebted to the NYC SideWalk Cafe/anti-folk scene of the '90s/early '00s, and if you miss that kinda stuff, Guts Club may be right up your alley. Check it out below.

She has a few shows coming up too, including two in her hometown. The first is March 4 at The Bell House with Mindtroll and Pony Farm (tickets); and the second is an afternoon show on Sunday, March 29 at Palisades with Little Cobweb, Pony Farm and Thelma ($5 at the door).

Full tour schedule, flyers for the NYC shows, and the new video, below...

Lower Dens

Lower Dens have made a video for "To Die In L.A." which is the first single from their forthcoming Escape from Evil. Directed by SSION's Cody Critcheloe, the video is a mini noir thriller set in the titular city and starring singer/model/scenester Actually Huizenga. Says Lower Dens' Jana Hunter:

The song takes its name from the film, 'To Live and Die in L.A.' and both the song and the film are about something wild, careless, exciting and tragic. The video needed to reflect that. Cody was the obvious choice. The first time I saw him in person, he was on top of a crowd in Monterrey, pelvic-thrusting and singing, as SSION. I fell in love immediately. Who better to translate this ode to reckless firebrands.
You can watch the video below.

As mentioned, Lower Dens will celebrate the new album with a few shows, including Baby's All Right on March 31 which is the LP's release date and is now sold out. Lower Dens will be on a more proper tour this summer, with another stop in NYC at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 11 which is part of the Northside Festival. Tickets for MHOW go on sale Friday (2/27) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (2/25) at noon.

The summer tour hasn't officially been announced yet, but all known dates are listed below...

Teen Suicide

Flippant attitude from their online presence in full force, vocalist/guitarist Sam Ray and guitarist John Toohey were quick to pop out of the high-octane songs right into banter about parents' flights getting sent back because of the snow, the virtues of weed (Sam hollered "Give it up for weed!" intermittently throughout the set) and disparaging remarks to their new boss, Run For Cover head honcho Jeff Cassaza who flew into town for the show.

Teen Suicide had drummer Dexter Loos on loan from Alex G, and were in full-on rockstar mode for their set. Between the constant spins across the stage, monitor mounting and back-to-back shredding it was kind of difficult to remember that their songs are kind of, well, overwhelmingly depressing. The band played songs spanning their discography and also busted out a few new songs including one called "God" and one called "Alex," both of which were a little more mellow than the band's usual fare.

The above quote is from our review on BV Chicago of Teen Suicide when we caught them on their recent tour with Alex G. (The tour hit NYC on 2/5 at Palisades.) The band don't have another tour lined up at the moment, but Sam Ray (aka Ricky Eat Acid) & co. will play a free one-off in NYC on March 27 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar. That show has a great lineup all around with Amanda X, Flagland, Crying, Washer and LVL UP.

Though it's a one-off for Teen Suicide, for Crying it's the first date of their tour, the rest of which is with recent Double Double Whammy signee, Epoch member, and Frankie Cosmos collaborator Eskimeaux. All dates on that tour are listed below.

Run For Cover (which The FADER just did a great profile on) is releasing a remastered version of Teen Suicide's debut LP and a collection of their EPs later this year. Stream two of the remastered tracks and check out the Brooklyn show flyer below...
