Italian trio Be Forest are masters of mood, making swoony dreampop informed by the classics but very much in the now. The band (who share a member with Brothers in Law) released their second album, Earthbeat, earlier this year via We Were Never Boring and you can stream the whole thing below. If you like Slowdive, '80s-era 4AD and modern stuff like The xx, you definitely should. The band also just released a cover of Beat Happening's "Indian Summer" which makes its premiere in this post. There are no shortage of covers of this song, but Be Forest really make it their own. Listen below.
Be Forest will be making their first trip to North America next month for a coast-to-coast tour. That starts in NYC for CMJ where they currently have two shows lined up: A day show at Cake Shop on October 22 (lineup TBA) and then a show at DROM later that night. More CMJ shows might be announced, stay tuned.
West Coast dates of their tour are with Los Angeles band Tennis System whose new album, Technicolor Blind, is out October 21. You can stream a track from that below. The band will also be here for CMJ, playing October 24 at Lit Lounge and other shows TBA.
All Be Forest and Tennis System tour dates are listed, along with song streams, below...
We just posted about Italy's His Clancyness coming over for SXSW and it turns out there's another Italian group that will be here too on their way to SXSW. Brothers in Law hail from coastal town of Pesaro, on the Adriatic Sea, and have recently released their debut album, Hard Times for Dreamers. If you like the janglier side of late-'80s Creation Records (House of Love, Felt) or current stuff on Slumberland (Girls Names, Veronica Falls), you should check their album out -- it's streaming in full below.
Brothers in Law play Sunday (3/10) at Death by Audio with The Beets' Juan Wauters, Horrible Present and Missing Document. It looks like they're on early so for those who want to also catch Girls Names at Cameo the same night, maybe its doable. Or if you want to keep it in Italy, His Clancyness is at Glasslands right around the corner from DBA. There may be a Brothers in Law show on Friday (3/9) as well, venue TBA, we'll see. All known tour dates are below.
