The Wytches @ Brooklyn's Glasslands in July (more by PSquared)
5

Brighton, UK-based psychedelic punks The Wytches are gearing up for the release of their new album, called Annabel Dream Reader, which is due to hit stores on August 25 via Partisan Records. It's whip-smart stuff, a la fellow UK band the Arctic Monkeys' debut LP Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, with loads of stoner riffs and the twisted poetry of lead oddball Kristian Bell. Annabel Dream Reader is currently streaming ahead of its release via NPR.

The Wytches were recently stateside for a tour with Cloud Nothings and have now announced a fall North American run of their own. That run includes a show at Schubas on October 31 (Halloween). Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (8/22) at noon CST.

All Wytches dates and their video for the LP cut "Burn Out the Bruise" lie after the jump...

Operators @ BV Northside 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
operators-22

Operators is the latest endeavor of Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits), featuring drummer Sam Brown (Divine Fits, New Bomb Turks) and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Devojka. The trio have been prepping their debut album, and just recently shared the LP's lead single "True". Operators deal in expertly-crafted, dance floor-ready synth pop that's right along the lines of Boeckner's work in Handsome Furs. And much like all other Boeckner projects live, Operators also bring it. You can take a listen to "True" at the bottom of this post.

Operators will fittingly be touring with Future Islands throughout August/September. During that run, the trio will break off for a headlining show of their own at Schubas on August 30. Support will come from Cincinnati garage-pop outfit Tweens, and advance tickets are on sale now.

All known Operators dates and a stream of "True" lie after the jump...
