Joanna Gruesome are presumably working on their second album. While we wait for news on that, the scrappy Welsh popsters will have one side of a split 12" with another UK band, Trust Fund, that will be out September 22 via Happy Happy Birthday to Me. Each band get three songs, and you can stream JG's very catchy "Jerome (Liar)" below. No tracks have been made available from Trust Fund's side, but you can stream the Briston, UK band's 2013 Don't Let Them Begin EP below. Only 500 copies of this are being pressed, order yours.

As you may know, Joanna Gruesome will be touring this summer, playing two NYC shows: August 26 at Shea Stadium with an impressive lineup of Perfect Pussy, Potty Mouth and the Joan of Arc-related The Love of Everything (tickets), and then the free Seaport Music Festival show on August 29 with Big Ups.

All dates are listed, with streams and a flyer for the Shea Stadium show, below...

Gap Dream -- aka onetime Cleveland resident Gabe Fulvimar who now lives at Burger Records HQ in Fullerton, CA -- began making '60s-ish pop but delved into dancier territory on 2013's underrated Shine Your Light. Gabe gets further into the groove on a new single, "Strong Love," which is one side of a split with Part Time that'll be out soon on Burger. That's the cover art above and we've got the premiere of "Strong Love" in this post.

You can pick up the single at the merch table on Gap Dream and Part Time's late summer tour which hits NYC for two shows: September 4 at Glasslands with Wax Witches, and September 5 at Cake Shop. Advance tickets are available now for the Glasslands show. All dates are listed below.

If you've never seen Gap Dream live, you're missing out. Here's what I wrote about their set at last year's Burger Caravan of Stars:

Normally no live drummer is an immediate strike against the band in my book, but Gabe's onstage charisma won me over almost immediately. Looking like he stepped straight out of WKRP in Cincinatti, Gabe is a confident charmer and the word "superstar" definitely popped into my head watching him work the crowd.
San Francisco's Part Time should make for a good double bill. Last year's PDA was a nice mix of soft rock, indie pop and new wave influences. Their side of the split 7" sounds kinda like... Naked Eyes. By way of Ariel Pink. Not a bad thing at all.

Speaking of Burger Caravan of Stars, this year's lineup (Coathangers, together PANGEA and more) hits NYC in October. All dates of the Gap Dream / Part Time tour are listed, along with the Gap Dream stream, below...

Dum Dum Girls have been on tour for pretty much all of 2014, and just played Pitchfork in Chicago last weekend.

XX

The last time The xx played NYC was when they played 25 shows for 40 people each at Park Avenue Armory in March (which Geoff Rickly paid $2000 to see), and their next show here will also be an unconventional one. They'll perform at the pre-party for this year's Guggenheim International Gala benefit which happens November 5 from 9 PM to midnight. There's a benefit dinner the following night which honors 2014 Guggenheim exhibition artists Carrie Mae Weems, Heinz Mack, Otto Piene (in memoriam), G√ľnther Uecker, and Wang Jianwei.

Tickets ($200 for Young Collector's Council members, $250 for general admission) are on sale now to members and GA tickets go on sale July 29 at noon. Admission includes the performance, a full open bar, and an opportunity to view a portion of the exhibition ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow: 1950s-60s from 9-10 pm.

Midge in his Ultravox days...
SMASHSMASH

As mentioned, Midge Ure will be part of this year's Retro Futura tour, along with fellow '80s-era artists Tom Bailey (Thompson Twins), Howard Jones, China Crisis and Katrina (of The Waves) -- that hits NYC on August 21 at Best Buy Theater. Surrounding that tour, Midge has scheduled two solo acoustic shows happening at NYC's Iridium Room on August 19 & September 12. Tickets for both Midge's acoustic shows and the Retro Futura tour are on sale now.

At those (and on the Retro Futura tour where he'll have a band), expect a mix of solo records, Ultravox tunes, Visage tunes and "a few surprises." Midge's new album, Fragile, is out August 19. All tour dates are listed below...

Iceage in Portland in 2013 (more by Autumn Andel)
Iceage

Denmark's Iceage already have two albums of dark punk/post-punk out, and it now seems they're pulling a The Men by abandoning those dark punk roots for something closer to country punk on their new single "The Lord's Favorite." The song's video (dir. Cali DeWitt) just came out and can be watched below. No exact details on a third album yet but they're working on one.

The band also announced a North American tour with London experimentalist Helm, who toured the US not long ago with Iceage's Copenhagen pals Damien Dubrovnik (mem Lust for Youth). That tour culminates in their appearance at Fun Fun Fun Fest and hits NYC on October 12 at Bowery Ballroom, the same venue they played in 2013 with White Lung and Parquet Courts. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon via Ticketmaster.

All dates are listed, with the new video, below...
