Astoria duo Foxygen will release their new album, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, via Jagjaguar in January 2013. Sam France and Jonathan Rado seem to be taking the entirety of 1969 (Stones, Love, Scott Walker, Ennio Morricone, Curtis Mayfield, VU, etc) and cramming it in a blender, making one big psychedlic pop cockail. You can stream the album's trippy, groovy single, "Shuggie," at the bottom of this post. Also below is a stream of their Take the Kids Off Broadway EP which came out over the summer.
Meanwhile, the band will be playing a load of shows this week for CMJ, including the BrooklynVegan day party on Friday (10/19) at Public Assembly. They'll play early (12:45 PM) in the back room.

Nada Surf also plays Bowery Ballroom again the next night (12/15) but no opener has been announced for that show. Tickets for both of Nada Surf's Bowery Ballroom shows are on sale now.
Eternal Summers will be in NYC much sooner though, seeing as they're scheduled to play at least three CMJ week shows.

Hundred Waters at Bowery Ballroom in August (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Gainesville's Hundred Waters are in NYC this week for a number of CMJ shows, a handful of which we've already mentioned, including the Windish showcase at Mercury Lounge on Wednesday (10/17) (tickets), the Hype Machine party at Brooklyn Bowl on Thursday (10/18) (free with RSVP), the I Guess I'm Floating day party at Pianos on Thursday (10/18) (free), the Deli Mag showcase at Pianos on Friday (10/19) (tickets), the Pitchfork showcase at Villain on Friday (10/19) (free), and the Consequence of Sound showcase at Public Assembly on Saturday (10/20) (tickets).
We're also happy to announce that Hundred Waters will be playing the BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday (10/20). That show is totally free and there will also be free PBR, Sailor Jerry spiced rum and Mercy drinks. Full lineup TBA, but meanwhile you can see who is playing our Friday party.
If you haven't heard Hundred Waters' self titled debut album, which came out this past February, it's been a steady grower all year. Since its relatively quiet release, the band have built more and more buzz, eventually leading to them touring with Skrillex, who re-released the album on his OWSLA label, along with a remix EP. Though signed to OWSLA, Hundred Waters don't fit sonically with their labelmates, instead operating in a realm of baroque art pop more similar to the recent output of Joanna Newsom and My Brightest Diamond. A stream of the entire album, their recent video for bonus track, "Hydrodictyon," and a list of all dates are below.
by Andrew Sacher
Copenhagen 4AD signees Indians (the project of Søren Løkke Juul ) already released some great singles this year and he's now announced that he'll release his debut album, Somewhere Else, on January 29 via the label.

If you enjoyed his other singles, this one's further proof that his album is something to look forward to.

Bertrand Burgalat @ Pop Montreal 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Zut alors! Bertrand Burgalat's CMJ appearances (tonight [10/16] at the "France Rocks!" party, tomorrow [10/17] at Fat Baby) have been "postponed" according to a post last night on BB's Facebook. These were to be his first NYC shows in 10+ years. Let's hope Bertrand gets whatever issues he's having sorted out and have him over soon. (I am personally really bummed.) His new album, Toutes Directions (listen on Spotify), is quite good.
The rest of tonight's France Rocks! show (Yan Wagner and
Juveniles (UPDATE, they canceled too), who are both supposed to be quite good live, and We Are Evergreen) is still happening and if you want to go it's free with RSVP. Tomorrow (10/17) at Highline Ballroom, there is another showcase of French bands, headlined Air side project World of Tomorrow.
UPDATE: We're told Sharon Van Etten is no longer playing this day party at Ace Hotel.

That party runs from 11:30 AM to 4:30 PM. The show fliyer and an updated list of Sharon Van Etten dates is below.
Choir of Young Believers have other CMJ shows and they'll also be playing the free BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday (10/20). The whole lineup is coming soon, we promise.
Speaking of CMJ shows at the Ace Hotel, there will also be "hangout sessions" and DJ sets from various indie labels for the third annual "Notes from the Underground."

And the "special surprise guest" playing Bowery Ballroom WEDNESDAY NIGHT is.... Local Natives! The band, who are flying in from California just for this Champion-sponsored show, will be previewing material from their new album which is due in early 2013. According to their label, this is their first show of 2012. Advanced tickets are now sold out, but not many were sold to make room for CMJ badgeholders. Did you buy one before you knew who the headliner was? If so, are you satisfied now that you know? SKATERS, San Cisco, Pacific Air, and Solid Gold open the show.

They've revealed the track, "Prom Song," from that album on their bandcamp, and we've got another, "Bump a Grape," in this post, which you can stream below.
