UK band Hooton Tennis Club released their debut album, Highest Point In Cliff Town, a couple weeks back. Somewhere between Pavement and the Pastels, it’s a return to the kind of indie that often got called “slacker.” In a good way, I think. You can stream some tracks — including their excelent “P.O.W.E.R.F.U.L. P.I.E.R.R.E.” single — via bandcamp and you can listen to the whole thing via Rdio below.

As hinted, Hooton Tennis Club are indeed coming to New York for CMJ. The only show announced so far is the NME showcase that’s happening at Santos Party House on October 14. It’s a pretty killer bill with Perfect Pussy, Protomartyr, Downtown Boys, Dilly Dally, Shopping, Yung, Nico Yaryan, Car Seat Headrest, Seratones, and YAK also playing. Tickets are on sale now.

Yak band

CMJ will be the first NYC trip for young London band Yak whose chaotic live shows and dark garagey sound have garnered comparisons to The Birthday Party and The Cramps (also: Thee Oh Sees or Fat White Family). You can check out a few videos and singles below…
