Single Mothers in Chicago in January (more by James Richards IV)
London, Ontario punks Single Mothers released their four-song self titled EP back in 2011 and it's one of those EPs that's just way too short, kills for the entire time, and leaves you begging for a full length album. Well fortunately, we'll be getting that album this year. The band have signed with XL imprint Hot Charity (Willis Earl Beal, Ratking) and the label will release their debut full length at some point in the near future. The album is being produced by Joby J. Ford of The Bronx, whose mix of post-hardcore and rock n' roll isn't too far removed from that of Single Mothers, and it wouldn't be surprising if they've picked up a few tips from The Bronx along the way.
The band are great live too, thrashing around ruthlessly as frontman Andrew Thomson spits wordy, personal lyrics at the crowd. They'll be taking that show on the road again this February and March, and will be coming through Austin for SXSW. The shows they have lined up so far include March 13 at Metal and Lace Lounge, a TBA show on 3/14, the CMW showcase on March 15 at Friends, and the Alternative Press showcase on March 16 at Red 7.
Before that, they'll be at pre-SXSW festival Savannah Stopover in Georgia, and afterwards they'll be at post-SXSW festival Spillover 2013 in Dallas with Parenthetical Girls, Parquet Courts, Today is the Day, Alex Bleeker and the Freaks, Widowspeak, Ducktails, and more. Tickets for Spillover are on sale now. The full lineup is below.
Single Mothers have other upcoming dates also, and all of them are listed below, along with a stream of their EP...

Perfume Genius @ Lamberts on 3/27
Playing with a small bandage on his forehead (attributed to a fall at a previous show), Zac Pennington and Parenthetical Girls opened the night at Lamberts, and talked a little bit about getting scolded for parts of their last performance in Austin at The Parish. There was a lot of animation during the set, including walks through the audience, but the previously mentioned scolding, not to mention the bandage, seemed to limit the amount of climbing and antics we've seen at previous performances. After many upbeat songs Zac warned the audience it was time to make them sad, and used every inch of the microphone cord to end the set with a very solemn "Stolen Children" while kneeling outside of the front door.
Matador's Perfume Genius (aka Mike Hadreas) took the stage a little after 11, hit a technical snag early (getting feedback during "Simple Song", which even incomplete moved an audience member to tears), and performed for more than an hour to a full house. While he didn't always seem fully comfortable between songs, during them he often appeared to find his center and connected well to the many crowding closely around Lamberts' very intimate stage.
Perfume Genius also performed earlier the same day at End of an Ear, and is on tour now. More pictures from Lamberts below....
Perfume Genius is on tour with Parenthetical Girls (who last played Austin with Los Campesinos). They play a show at Lambert's TONIGHT (3/27). Tickets are still on sale, but if you're quick you can also catch the free PG in-store at End of an Ear at 6pm.
All Perfume Genius dates are listed with the video for "Hood" below...
