The Julie Ruin // Screaming Females at Lincoln Hall on 04.09.2014
Kathleen Hanna's The Julie Ruin brought their spring tour with Screaming Females through Chicago for a sold-out show at Lincoln Hall on Wednesday night (4/9). Hanna and co. ripped through tunes from 2013's Run Fast, but also reached back to her 1998 solo LP Julie Ruin for a few songs -- "V.G.I.," "Radical or Pro-Parental," and "Breakout A-Town." Material from both Julie Ruin albums was complimented by covers of Le Tigre's "Friendship Station" and "Eau d'Bedroom Dancing" and Bikini Kill's "This Is Not A Test." Pictures from Lincoln Hall are in this post.

The Orwells at Lincoln Hall on 04.01.2014
On Tuesday night (4/1), The Orwells finished off a US tour with their Chicago cohorts Twin Peaks with a sold-out hometown show at Lincoln Hall. Their headlining set consisted of a mix of tunes from their 2012 breakthrough Remember When and more recent EPs, and they also previewed material from their forthcoming Disgraceland LP (due out 6/3). Fellow young Chicagoans The Symposium got things started, and we've got pictures from the 4/1 show in this post.
While in Austin, TX for SXSW 2014, everyone's favorite interviewer Nardwuar the Human Serviette caught up with The Orwells for an in-depth chat. They spoke about stage attire ("It varies from clothes to no clothes..."), the importance of A Tribe Called Quest, and much more. Video footage from that interview and more pictures from their 4/1 show at Lincoln Hall lie after the jump...

The Haxan Cloak -- aka London producer/composer Bobby Krlic -- has announced that he'll be embarking on his first-ever US tour this spring. The very brief May run includes a performance at Lincoln Hall on May 14 and tickets are on sale now. Krlic will also play the 2014 Pitchfork Music Festival on Friday, July 18.
The Haxan Cloak's most recent effort, Excavation, hit stores in April of 2013 via Tri Angle Records. It's chock-full of unrelenting sub-bass, jagged beats, and horror film-like noise flourishes. You can take a listen to the LP cut "The Mirror Reflecting (Part 2)" at the bottom of this post and/or stream the album in its entirety via Spotify/Rdio.

Last week, Future Islands brought their North American tour in support of Singles through Chicago for a sold-out show at Lincoln Hall. Frontman // dance fanatic Samuel T. Herring and co. turned the venue into a giant dance party as they tore through tunes from their great new LP, 2011's On the Water, 2010's In Evening Air, and older material. We've got pictures, their full setlist, and a couple of videos from the 3/26 show in this post.

As discussed, The Orwells have been hard at work on a proper follow-up to 2012's Remember When. It's called Disgraceland, is due out on June 3 via Canvasback // Atlantic, and features tracks helmed by indie rock production gurus Chris Coady, Dave Sitek, and Jim Abbiss. The first taste of the LP is a much fuller, sludgy tune called "Let It Burn," with frontman Mario Cuomo coming off a bit like Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock. It arrives in the form of a tour footage music video, which you can check out at the bottom of this post.
The Orwells are currently on tour throughout the US with their Chicago buddies Twin Peaks (who will play the 2014 Pitchfork Music Festival). Their joint run will finish off with a sold-out hometown show at Lincoln Hall on April 1.
Check out their new video for "Let It Burn" below...
Swans are slated to release the follow-up to their 2012 masterpiece The Seer, titled To Be Kind, on May 13 via ringleader Michael Gira's Young God Records. Special guests include Annie Clark (pka St. Vincent), Cold Specks, and Little Annie, and they've just recently shared its funky and off-kilter lead single "A Little God In My Hands." You can take a listen to the track at the bottom of this post. The LP's cover art will be presented in six different panels -- one is above and the remaining five can also be found below.
Michael Gira and co. will also be doing quite a bit of touring this summer. Their North American leg includes a performance at Lincoln Hall on June 22. Ticketing information for the Chicago show is forthcoming, but check LH's concert calendar for updates.

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of Broad City, Comedy Central's newest webseries-cum-TV show hit, are touring the US in support of their highly successful first season. In fact, it was so successful, they had to postpone their original tour to write the second season! Lucky for all of us, they rescheduled, and they're coming to Lincoln Hall on November 12 for two shows (8PM & 10:30PM)! Tickets for both are on sale now. Haven't heard of Broad City? Some describe it as "Workaholics for women," while others make the obvious comparison to Girls because of its New York location and female protagonists. However, Broad City takes a more absurdist approach to New York, making caricatures of everyday encounters, like dealing with a creepy locksmith or going to a package center to retrieve a missed UPS package. Watch a clip, and check out tour dates, below...

How to Dress Well @ Pitchfork Fest 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Today, excellent R&B crooner How To Dress Well (aka Tom Krell) has shared a new track called "Words I Don't Remember." Without a follow-up to 2012's Total Loss announced, it seems like a one-off affair, and a stellar one at that. Like his past work, it's a deeply emotional number paired with airy atmospheres that his strong voice glides over. You can take a listen to the track at the bottom of this post. As discussed, How To Dress Well plays a hometown show (where does he even reside anymore--Chicago? Berlin?) at Lincoln Hall on March 30 with tourmate Forest Swords (tickets).
A stream of Krell's new track "Words I Don't Remember" can be found below...
Eels @ NYC's Webster Hall, 2013 (more by PSquared Photography)
Last month, Screaming Females tagged Chicago for a special two-night stand at the Hideout. Both nights were tracked live by Steve Albini for their Live At The Hideout LP, which is due out on April 8 via Don Giovanni. The first taste of that album is a driving, seven-minute version of "Lights Out" from 2009's Power Move, and you can take a listen to it at the bottom of this post. You'll also find the tracklisting for Live At The Hideout below.
As discussed, Screamles are slated to embark on a spring North American tour with The Julie Ruin. When we first told you about that tour, Marissa Paternoster and co. weren't announced for the Chicago show, but they'll now be appearing with TJR at Lincoln Hall on April 9. Advance tickets are still available.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks at Lincoln Hall on 02.20.2014
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks brought their North American tour in support of Wig Out At Jagbags through Chicago for a performance at Lincoln Hall on Thursday night (2/20). The LH show was their first of a handful of dates with Chicago's own Disappears, and pictures from it--including one of the setlist--are in this post.
Malkmus and co. polished off the night with the interesting encore of WOAJ's "Surreal Teenagers," Pavement's "Stereo," and a mixture of Beck's "The Golden Age" and "Debra" into the Pavement classic "Gold Soundz." (Beck produced The Jicks' 2011 effort Mirror Traffic.) More pictures and some video footage of their frankenstein final number lie after the jump...

Cloud Nothings @ BV-SXSW 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
Cloud Nothings are slated to welcome the follow-up to 2012's excellent Attack on Memory on April 1 via Carpark // Mom + Pop Records in the US. It's called Here and Nowhere Else, was produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Swans, etc.), and you've already heard its great lead single "I'm Not Part of Me." They've now revealed some live footage of the tune from a recent show at Brooklyn venue Baby's All Right, and you can check it out at the bottom of this post.
CN have also announced a spring North American tour in support of their forthcoming LP. That tour includes a performance at Lincoln Hall on May 3 with support from Detroit punks Protomartyr, and tickets go on sale this Friday (2/14) at noon CST.

UK neo-psychedelic outfit Temples are getting ready to release their debut LP, Sun Structures, on February 10 via Heavenly Recordings (UK) // February 11 via Fat Possum (US). Much like Tame Impala, the band's sound is rooted in 1960s/70s psychedelia, and they borrow more than a little bit from The Byrds, '65 to '70 Beatles, and so on. Sun Structures is currently streaming in its entirety via NPR, and you can also take a listen to the album tracks "Mesmerize," "Shelter Song," and "Colours To Life" at the bottom of this post.
Temples will be touring North American this spring surrounding their appearances at Coachella 2014 and Austin Psych Fest. That tour includes a performance at Lincoln Hall on April 26 with support from Welsh NYC-transplants Drowners. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (2/7) at noon CST.

Angel Olsen @ the Hideout, February 2013 (more by Kirstie Shanley)
Angel Olsen will welcome her new album, titled Burn Your Fire for No Witness, later on this month via Jagjaguwar. You've already heard "Forgiven/Forgotten" and "Hi-Five" from the LP, which both stray from plaintive, subdued feel of her previous material, and she's now shared a video for "Hi-Five" directed by frequent collaborator Zia Anger. It simulates a 1960s/70s television broadcast, and you can check out the clip at the bottom of this post. Olsen has also expanded her 2014 tour schedule to include a month-long spring North American run. You can look for the former Chicago-resident (no hard feelings, Angel) to appear at Lincoln Hall on May 4. Ticketing information for the Chicago show is forthcoming, but check LH's concert calendar for updates.
