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...

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.

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.

Dublin's James Vincent McMorrow welcomed his second album, Post Tropical, earlier this week via Vagrant Records.

The Orwells @ Brooklyn's MHoW in May (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Chicago-area upstarts The Orwells appear to be putting the final touches on their second full-length album. They've been tracking with producer Chris Coady at upstate New York spot Dreamland Recording Studios and Chicago's own Soma Electronic Music Studios for the past couple of months. There isn't any word on when those recordings will be released, but hopefully they'll arrive sometime this year. It'll serve as the follow-up to their 2012 breakthrough Remember When, and will come directly after a pair of 2013 EPs----Other Voices and Who Needs You.
The Orwells will keep busy this winter by hitting the road with Arctic Monkeys for a string of U.S. tour dates. They'll then tour the U.K. in late-February and will return stateside in March. They've
only got a couple of dates scheduled upon their return, one of which is a performance at Lincoln Hall on April 1 with support from Twin Peaks. Tickets for their hometown show go on sale this Friday (1/17) at noon CST. UPDATE: Their full headlining tour has been announced and is listed below.

This Friday (1/10) at Lincoln Hall, local filmmaker Chris Hefner will be holding a pair of screenings for his second feature film The Poisoner. It's looking to be a rather interesting film, heavy on black and white noir visuals and a slightly macabre story. The Kafka-esque plot focuses on a married couple where the wife is contractually obligated to slowly poison her husband during their life together. The Poisoner will show at 7PM and 10PM, and both screenings will be preceded by a live musical performance from Daniel Knox, the film's composer, as well as an introduction by Hefner. Advance tickets are still available.
Check out a trailer for the film after the jump...
New Year's Eve (December 31) is just around the corner... have you figured out what you're doing yet? There are a handful of great concerts and parties taking place in Chicago this year, from Death (the band) to Roky Erickson to Star Slinger to Girl Group Chicago, and many more. Check out your options below...
Oozing Wound, Magic Milk, Jimmy Whispers, and DJ Mike Lust will kick out the jams at the Empty Bottle. Advance tickets are still available and you could even return the following night for Everyone's Hungover, which is just like "Everyone's A DJ, but with multiple playlists from multiple humans and the company of all your buddies/plas/comrades/frenemies from all over this weird little community."
Speaking of veteran Chicago punks, The Lawrence Arms play Concord Music Hall with Masked Intruder, Downtown Struts, and Direct Hit! (tickets). TLA are gearing up for the release of their first full-length album in eight-years, titled Metropole, which is due out on January 28 via Epitaph. You can take a listen to the LP's lead single "You Are Here" at the bottom of this post.
And don't be an idiot--take the CTA (or a cab) out/home instead of driving drunk. CTA Penny Rides begin at 10PM on New Year's Eve and last until 4AM.
