The Rosebuds are one of the many acts announced for this year's Hopscotch Music Festival which happens in Raleigh, NC from September 5 - 7. Their performance there will be a special one, as they'll be performing their version of Sade's Love Deluxe album in full. Three-day Hopscotch wristbands are on sale now. If you haven't heard their version of Sade's album, you can stream it below or download it for free.
Right after Hopscotch, The Rosebuds will head north for a short East Coast tour, where they'll also be doing Love Deluxe, including a stop in NYC at Mercury Lounge on September 12. Tickets to that show go on sale Friday (5/3) at noon. All tour dates are listed below.

Jack White @ Radio City Music Hall, 9/30/2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
In addition to the Fleetwood Mac cover story (and Rumours cover CD that comes with it), the new issue of MOJO is the 2012 Year-End wrap-up with the best albums list which is topped by Jack White's Blunderbuss. Their list is definitely different than most, but also in line with the mag that puts the Beatles on the cover at least once a year. You can check out MOJO's Top 20 below.
Ben Gibbard at Hi-Fi Bar in October (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben GIbbard, who played a single intimate show in NYC during CMJ, kicked off his tour with Advance Base in Minneapolis last week and they're set to hit NYC TONIGHT (11/5) at Town Hall. Tickets for tonight's show are still available.
Ben also just recently released a video for "Teardrop Windows" off of his debut album, Former Lives (out now via Barsuk), which was directed by Tom Scharpling, who also recently directed videos for Aimee Mann, Nude Beach, and others. The video stars comedian Kurt Braunohler, who plays a record label executive that tries to turn Ben into a "bad boy." Check out that video and an updated list of dates below.
Advance Base - 'The Shut-In's Prayer'
Advance Base (the current project of Owen Ashworth formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone) released his debut album for the project, A Shut-In's Prayer, earlier this year. Stream two of its tracks, "New Gospel" and "Summer Music," and watch the video for the latter below.
Advance Base has a number of upcoming shows this year including a few support dates for Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painters) on his upcoming tour which brings both musicians to NYC on September 29 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show are still on sale. Advance Base also plays another NYC show one day earlier (9/28) at Union Hall with Pendulum Swings and Jennifer O'Connor. Tickets for that show are not yet on sale.
It's also just been announced that Advance Base will support Ben Gibbard on many of the dates on his upcoming solo tour, incuding the NYC show which happens on November 5 at Town Hall. Tickets for that show are still available. When we last spoke, The Town Hall date was the only announced date on Ben Gibbard's tour but that tour has just been revealed in full and is mostly with Advance Base except for a few California dates with Damien Jurado (who plays his own NYC show on his tour). All Ben Gibbard dates are listed below.

DOWNLOAD: Sun Kil Moon - "Sunshine in Chicago" (MP3)
Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelek has scheduled a few North American dates to happen this fall. One of those will take place in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 29 with support from Caldo Verde labelmate Advance Base (aka Owen Ashworth, formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone), who interviewed Mark last year about the film Mark Kozelek: On Tour. Tickets for the Brooklyn show go on sale Friday (4/6) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/4) at noon. All dates are listed below.
In related news, Mark Kozelek is readying his fifth full length album for his Sun Kil Moon project, Among the Leaves, which is due out May 29 via Caldo Verde. Like 2010's Admiral Fell Promises, the album focuses almost entirely on Mark's voice and nylon string guitar, but Among the Leaves also features an "ensemble of players [joining] Mark for a portion of the record." Download the lead single, "Sunshine in Chicago," above or stream it below, along with the album's artwork and tracklist.

It's one of three shows the Strokes-covering Deradoorian has coming up on the east coast. They are all listed below...
Advance Base (via facebook)
Owen Ashworth, who ended Casiotone for the Painfully Alone last year, has a new project called Advance Base and it comes in at least two forms. The Advance Base Family Band is Owen along with Nick Ammerman, Ed Crouse, and Jody Weinmann. Advance Base can also be a duo consisting of Owen and his brother Gordon aka Concern who the Advance Bass duo is touring with this month (in other words, Gordon opens as "Concern" and then plays with Owen in/as "Advance Base"). The tour includes NYC shows on August 30 at Death By Audio and on August 31 at Mercury Lounge. Sam Mickens is also on the DbA bill. All dates are listed below...
