No Joy @ Mexican Summer Five (more by P Squared)
Last week we posted that Dam-Funk were added to Brooklyn Night Bazaar's upcoming slate of shows on March 7. Since then, BKNB have announced even more of their spring schedule, with some pretty cool artists planned for the next couple months, including Ash, Guards, No Joy, Young Galaxy, Fear of Men and more.
Montreal widescreen synth pop combo Young Galaxy will play on Saturday, March 15 with American Royalty (who just played Baby's All Right), Bowmont, and Late Guest at the Party. That's the second of two nights presented by T / My Free Concert -- the Friday (3/14) show being Guards and more TBA.
On Saturday, April 5, it's long-running (and underrated) Irish band Ash (who lived here in NYC for a while) who will play with Run River North, and Golden Suits. That's part of a weekend presented by Pandora, with Bronze Radio Return, Boston's Gem Club (here not that long ago), and The Suzan playing on Friday, April 5.
Then the weekend of April 18/19 is presented by Insound and Kanine Records. The Friday show (4/18) is with UK band Fear of Men whose new album will be out around the time of this show, plus Drew Citron and Frankie Rose's band Beverly (whose new song we dig a lot), Toronto's Alvvays (who just played with Yuck at Bowery) and Florida band Beach Day. Then for the Saturday show (4/19), it's Montreal's No Joy, Philadelphia's Bleeding Rainbow (new LP and NYC release show at the end of Feb.), felow Philly band Little Big League, and a second appearance by Beach Day. Note that Saturday is also Record Store Day, so if you blew all your money on limited edition vinyl, remember Brooklyn Night Bazaar shows are free. Beverly, Beach Day and Bleeding Rainbow all feature on Kanine RDS compilation Non Violent Femmes.
Lastly, Friday, April 25 will play host to Total Slacker (who just had a record release party) and Reputante.
In addition to the free shows, Brooklyn Night Bazaar offers amusements (ping pong, mini golf, pinball and vintage arcade games), beer and wine, gourmet food, and a variety of shopping options from local vendors.

Brooklyn's Bowmont recently released the single "Just Cause You're Right," a dreamy electropop number that's grounded with dance-ready beats. The song's off a forthcoming EP, Hovering, due out this month, and the band is celebrating the occasion with a show at the Highline Ballroom on February 19th with Dragons of Zynth, Denitia & Sene and Pajama People as part of a Den Entertainment showcase. Tickets are available. For Boston people, you can catch Bowmont with Dinoczar and Vital Sign on February 17th at The Middle East.

Brooklyn's Ski Lodge have finally announced details of their debut album, Big Heart, which will be out August 20 via Dovecoat. That's the cover art above. The record was made in Los Angeles with producer Louis Pescov (of Fool's Gold), who produced Best Coast's debut. The LP's first single is ultra-catchy "Boy," which owes more than a little to The Smith's "Ask," and you may have seen them play in our BV Sessions video. You can stream the studio version below.
Ski Lodge have a few local dates coming up: Saturday (6/22) at Cameo with Superhumanoids and Bowmont (tickets); June 26 at 285 Kent with The Denzels, Haybaby and TOONS (tickets); and the Ace Hotel on July 14.
That Cameo show initially included Vancouver's Gold & Youth, but they've unfortunately dropped off the show.
All dates are listed, along with the single stream, below.
As mentioned, Still Corners' new album, Strange Pleasures, is out next month (5/4) on Sub Pop. Reduced to a duo of core members Greg Hughes and Tessa Murray, the band embrace synthesizers which gives their sound an Air-y feel. The band are playing Toronto's NXNE Festival in June and will stop in NYC on their way there, playing Glasslands on June 12. Tickets to that show go on sale Friday (4/5) at noon.
Still Corners are one of many new additions to 2013 of NXNE which happens at various Toronto venues from June 10 - 16. All Still Corners dates are listed, along with the updated NXNE lineup, below...
As mentioned, Montreal's Valleys will release their new album, Are You Going To Stand There And Talk Weird All Night?, on April 30 via Kanine Records. The duo just released the video for first single, "Undream a Year," which finds singer Tillie Perks stuck in a dreamlike surreality from which she must escape. You can watch it below.
Valleys will play NYC tonight at Pianos with Praha Depart, Bowmont, Man Without Country (who play our official SXSW showcase), and Late Guest at the Party. Tickets are still available. The band then head to Texas for SXSW like 73% of all the bands in the world. After that the band join up with Fol Chen for a tour that hits NYC at Glasslands on April 4. Tickets are still available for that show as well. All tour dates -- including their SXSW schedule -- are listed below.

Jonquil member Hugo Manuel released his debut album as Chad Valley last November via Cascine. The album, which features guest appearances by Twin Shadow, El Perro del Mar, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, is glistening dancepop that takes '80s influences and brings them into the now. (His voice is, at times, eerily reminiscent of Tears for Fears' Roland Orzibal.) You can stream the whole thing below.
Chad Valley are going on tour this spring, including two shows in NYC; April 12 at Glasslands with Rush Midnight (tickets); and Mercury Lounge on April 13 with Selebrities (tickets). All Chad Valley dates are listed below.
If you're interested in seeing the openers for both of Chad Valley's NYC shows before April, Rush Midnight and Selebrities are playing together with Bowmont and fellow Cascine recording artist Wildarms on DJ duty at Glasslands on Thursday (2/28). Tickets are still available and the flyer for that show is below.
Montreal's Valleys have announced details of their new album, Are You Going To Stand There And Talk Weird All Night?, which will be out April 30 on Kanine Records.

While no tracks have been released from the album yet, you can watch a live session of LP cut "See the Moon?" from Pop Montreal 2012 below. Valleys will be going on tour this spring on their way down to Austin during SXSW, including a stop in NYC at Pianos on March 7 with Praha Depart, Bowmont, Man Without Country, and Late Guest at the Party. Advance tickets are available.
After that, the band do a short East Coast tour in April with Fol Chen, including stop in NYC at Glasslands on 4/4. No advance tickets for that show just yet, but you can check out all upcoming Valleys tour dates below.
