Australia's Architecture in Helsinki will head to the US to play some dates in June with Hooray for Earth, including Webster Hall on June 16th, Tickets are currently on AMEX presale and go on regular sale Friday at noon (1/28). Though full details are forthcoming, the dates look to be part of a full US assault, and most likely in support of the band's upcoming LP Vision Revision which the band finished last year.
Hooray for Earth supported The Concretes at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (1/22) and the band will hit the road to head toward SXSW with A Place To Bury Strangers. Both APTBS and HFE have shows at Glasslands in the coming weeks. APTBS will play the previously-mentioned and now-sold-out show at the venue on Saturday 1/29 with Beach Fossils, Caveman, Guards, ARMS, and Dreamers of the Ghetto, and HFE will hit Glasslands on Mar 8th with Zambri, Rewards, and Lemonade on the 1's & 2's (tickets).

Esau Mwamwaya @ Le Poisson Rouge - July 18, 2009 (by Kwesi Abbensetts)
The Very Best (production duo Radioclit and Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya) played a late-night show at (Le) Poisson Rouge on July 18th. They were joined by two backup dancers (one of which was on crutches!), and Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend for one song. He stopped by to contribute his part on "Warm Heart Of Africa." That track and two new remixes are posted above.
Ezra Koenig @ Le Poisson Rouge - July 18, 2009 (by Kwesi Abbensetts)
The Very Best's debut record, Warm Heart of Africa, is due to come out on Green Owl, the NYC-based record label that was founded by Benjamin Brewer (the father of M.I.A.'s child), on September 22nd (available digitally August 25). Ezra and M.I.A. both sing songs on it. That album is not to be confused with Esau Mwamwaya & Radioclit Are The Very Best which was the mixtape (that contains songs by Vampire Weekend and M.I.A.) they released for free in 2008. Grab that above.
On Saturday night (7/25) (exactly a week after the LPR show), Radioclit brought "their wild monthly London residency, SECOUSSE, to the States for an all out UK vs. BK battle of the riddims." And by "the states", they mean Supreme Trading (or the former Supreme Trading building at 213 N 8th St) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Green Owl artist Janka Nabay was also on the bill.
"While many genres of African music have made the crossover to the west (Afrobeat, Highlife, etc), Sierra Leone's traditional Muslim street songs, or Bubu music, have not. The king of Bubu is Ahmed Janka Nabay, an amazing humanitarian musician whose life has been shaped by Sierra Leone's civil war." [Straw vs Gold]According to Green Owl, it was the king of Bubu's first "official" NYC show, but he didn't have to come too far; Ahmed Janka currently lives in Philadelphia. He wore a traditional Rafia costume at the show, that he made earlier that day....

AND, it ends up that Saturday night's show at Supreme Trading was also a sort-of-secret Very Best show. Radioclit did DJ, but then performed with Esau too (no Ezra this time though). More pictures from both shows and the new album artwork, below...

Though technically signed to Paperbag Records in Canada, Tokyo Police Club are practically an unsigned band who are young, and doing awesome things like playing Letterman and headlining Bowery Ballroom (tickets on sale) (Maxwell's too), so enquiring minds what to know just WHO they will finally sign with. Will it be a major? Will it not be a major? Word on the street says it will be....Saddle Creek - home of Bright Eyes, The Faint, Cursive, and Maria Taylor (not a major). Maybe, maybe not.
