Whimsical NYC collective Toys & Tiny Instruments will release their long-percolating debut album, Thunder Clap Machine, on Friday (3/1). As their name implies it's serious pop music but made with kazoos, stylofones, ukulele's, slide whistles and other toys and tiny instruments. You can stream the whole thing below.
The band have a couple local shows on tap, including tonight (2/28) at The Rock Shop with Boy Girl Party and Late Cambrian (tickets). Then on March 21st they'll play Death by Audio as part of The Chris Gethard Show's "The Weirdest Bands We Know Vol. 3" with Bad Credit, No Credit, Disposable Rockets Band and Hand Job Academy. $7 at the door for that one.

Titus Andronicus at Glasslands on NYE (via Alex Vasquez)
Titus Andronicus rang in the new year in Brooklyn at Glasslands for a Dapwell-hosted show. Titus went on after midnight after sets by Baked and Cosmonaut. They played a wild set with favorites from all three Titus albums and then finished the set off with a run of covers -- Thin Lizzy's "The Boys are Back in Town," The Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar," and The Modern Lovers' "Roadrunner." The full setlist is below.
Titus frontman Patrick Stickles also just spoke to Pitchfork about his "TOP FIVE RECORD COMPANY FAILS OF 2012" aka his five favorite "Self-released records and unsigned giants," which you can see listed below in alphabetical order. The list includes three of Patrick's Brooklyn neighbors, The So So Glos, Bad Credit No Credit, and Hard Nips (who play Shea Stadium on January 10 with Desert Sharks, Heliotropes, and Hippy). It also includes Boston's Hallelujah the Hills, who play Brooklyn on February 24 at The Rock Shop with Zachary Cale and Woodsy Pride. Patrick's full list with commentary and a list of all Hard Nips dates are below.

"Shit is about to get pretty real @sheastadiumbk #trippplenippple" - Titus Andronicus
Trippple Nippples played the last of the few NYC shows they scheduled over the past two weeks while visiting from Tokyo, at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn on Wednesday night. They were sporting a very similar look to what they wore on New Year's Eve at 285 Kent. As mentioned, there was also a secret guest who ended up being Anamanaguchi. Bad Credit/No Credit, Hard Nips and Guardian Alien played the show too. More pictures below...
