Austin synth rockers Knifight, who maybe you caught opening for Future Islands last year, will release their second full length, V, on February 10. You can get a taste of it from the single "Young Lovers" below. In addition to that, we've also got the premiere of the band's cover of David Bowie's "Breaking Glass" from his classic Low album. You can listen to that below too.
Knifight also have some dates coming up, including two in their hometown. They play an album release show on February 6 at Cheer Up Charlie's with Night Drive and Gost ($5 at door), and then again on April 9 at North Door (ticket info and other bands TBA). All dates are listed below.

dancin' Sam Herring @ Mohawk - 4/23/2014
Future Islands brought their North American tour, which has already hit NYC, SXSW, Chicago, Portland, Coachella and other places, back to Austin this week for a show at Mohawk this past Wednesday (4/23). Future Islands have been experiencing newfound success, thanks in part to their Letterman meme and their new album on 4AD, Singles, which has the material to back it up. They played plenty of that album, plus their earlier albums at Wednesday's show.
Opening the show was their tourmates/Baltimore pals Ed Schrader's Music Beat whose post-punk sound is always entertaining, and Austin locals Knifight. Pictures of all three bands are in this post. They continue below...
