Phosphorescent @ Chicago's Metro on 9.20.2013 (more by James Richards IV)
Phosphorescent

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Phosphorescent, Julianna Barwick @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Phosphorescent is about to wrap up a great year that's seen a pretty significant increase in critical and fan love for the band with a four-night sold-out run at Music Hall of Williamsburg. This is the first night, and it's the only one that main man Matthew Houck will be playing solo, the other three are full-band. Opening tonight's show and tomorrow's is ambient pop artist Julianna Barwick, who's not to miss either.

Every Time I Die, Letlive, Code Orange Kids, Angel Du$t @ Saint Vitus
Every Time I Die is headlining this show, but if you're going, we think you shouldn't miss Code Orange Kids, whose brand of post-hardcore is as ferocious musically as the band's live show. Since the show sold out, they added an early one that you can still get tickets to.

Field Mouse, The Box Tiger, Tancred, Mount Sharp @ Pianos
Pianos has a solid show tonight with Field Mouse who make shoegazy indie pop and Tancred, the solo project of Now, Now guitarist Jess Abbott which gives her a chance to do stuff with a rockier edge than her other, atmospheric band.

MS MR, Haerts, Magic Man @ Secret Location
The label and party-throwers Neon Gold are celebrating their Fifth Anniversary tonight with this invite-only party featuring ebullient pop duo MS MR and more.

Nacho Picasso, GDP (w/ Space Jesus), Lakutis, DVS, Perrion, Rosegold @ 285 Kent
If you're into weirdo rap, there's no lack of that at this show, with Nacho Picasso who has some pretty good mixtapes out, Run for Cover-signed GDP, Das Racist associate Lakutis, and more.

The Early November, Allison Weiss, Oh Honey @ Bowery Ballroom
NJ emo band The Early November celebrated the tenth anniversary of their debut The Room's Too Cold this year with a reissue and a couple shows playing the album in full, including this one. It's sold out, but if you've got tickets, it's worth showing up for indie rock singer/songwriter Allison Weiss too.

The Suzan, Metalleg, Death Moth @ Glasslands
Japanese band living in New York, The Suzan are working on the follow-up to 2010's Bjorn Yttling-produced Golden Week For The Poco Poco Beat. A lot of fun live, they play tonight with party rockers Metalleg, and Tucson's dusty-sounding Death Moth.

Crushed Out, Caged Animals, Turner Cody, Rosy Street, Give to Light @ Shea Stadium
Caged Animals debut their new four-piece version of the band tonight at this show that's being headlined by rock n' roll duo Crushed Out, plus the charming pop of Turner Cody and more.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's playing tonight, but you can check Max's Twitter.

Peter Walker @ Union Pool
A disciple of Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan, as well as a close personal associate of the famed leftist lawyer William Kunstler and Timothy Leary, guitarist Peter Walker plays his first NYC show in seven years tonight.

Fredo Santana, Young Gleesh, A$AP Ant @ Santos Party House
Fredo Santana made a splash this year with his song with Kendrick Lamar, "Jealous," and tonight the Chicago rapper finally makes his NYC debut. If you're going, you don't wanna miss A$AP Ant of the burgeoning A$AP Mob either.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

Mikal Cronin at NXNE 2013 (more by David Andrako)
Mikal Cronin

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Mikal Cronin, The Entrance Band, Nude Beach @ Webster Hall
Having released one of the year's most acclaimed guitar pop albums (MCII), Mikal Cronin returns to NYC for his biggest show yet. The show's also got The Entrance Band, Nude Beach and "Special Guests," and economically priced $15 tickets are still available. This'll be a good show.

Red Fang, Cancer Bats, The Shrine, Indian Handcrafts @ Bowery Ballroom
This four-band metal tour is more of a heavy riff-rock thing than the kind of music that is often referred to as "metal" these days, but if you're the kind of person that rocks out to this stuff, this show is unmissable.

Chuck Inglish, Kings Dead, Tayyib Ali @ SOB's
The Cool Kids aren't up to much at the moment, but member Chuck Inglish has been having a very busy year, popping up as a guest on multiple tracks and putting out a few of his own releases too, one of the more notable ones being his EP with Ab-Soul and Mac Miller. He's been out on the road with Kings Dead and Tayyib Ali and tonight they hit NYC.

Reggie Watts @ Irving Plaza
Comedian, musician, loop pedal guru, Comedy Bang! Bang! bandleader -- Reggie Watts is one of a kind. Tonight's show is sold out.

Leif Vollebekk @ Rockwood Music Hall
This underrated Canadian singer-songwriter released his most recent album, North Americana, at the start of this year in Canada (it comes out in the US on 1/28/14) and its folky charms will work especially well at an intimate venue like Rockwood.

The Hairs, The Teen Age, Magneta Lane, Weekender, Bluffing @ Pianos
Toronto trio Magneta Lane headline this all-around solid bill that also includes indiepop bands The Teen Age and The Hairs.

Bridget Everett @ Joe's Pub
While she's been previewing her new show "Rock Bottom," lately, Bridgett Everett's performance tonight is a "regular" show with her band The Tender Moments (which features Adam "Ad-Rock" Horowitz on bass).

Howth, Caged Animals, Jeffrey Lewis and the Rain @ Union Pool
Tonight is a belated record release show for superior Brooklyn indie pop band Caged Animals' new album, In the Land of Giants, which came out back in September. Jeffrey Lewis is not to be missed either.

Sebastian Blanck @ The Standard, East Village
Sebastian Blanck was once a member of Black Dice, but now he makes equally experimental music on his own, and you can catch him playing that music tonight.

ShowYouSuck, Caleb James, Freeze-Tag @ Baby's All Right
ShowYouSuck is one of the more notable up-and-comers in Chicago's thriving rap scene at the moment. He hasn't hit Chance the Rapper or Chief Keef status yet, but catch him while he's still small at Baby's All RIght tonight.

Big Terrific @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's playing tonight, but you can check Max's Twitter.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

Lou Reed

The Lou Reed tributes keep coming. Two of them just happened, including the one at Rodeo Bar on Wednesday (11/20) and the one with Jeffrey Lewis, Dawn Landes, and others at the Jalopy Theatre last night (11/21). Now there will be another one at Bowery Electric this Sunday (11/24).

The show features a pretty big lineup, including no wave legend Arto Lindsay, Voidoids guitarist Ivan Julian, Patti Smith Band guitarist Lenny Kaye, TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe, Lou Reed/Laurie Anderson/Marc Ribot collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, Light Asylum's Shannon Funchess, Grooms' Travis Johnson, People Get Ready's Steven Reker, The Vaccines' Justin Hayward-Young, Caged Animals, Drowners, Jeffrey Lewis, Kirin J. Callinan, Phantom Family Halo, Sam Mickens, and more, plus Hollis Brown performing VU's Loaded in its entirety.

Tickets for the show are on sale now, and all proceeds will benefit the Ali Forney Center, an organization "that works to protect LGBT youth from the harm of homelessness in the city." There will also be a pre-Thanksgiving food drive for Food Bank of NYC at the venue that night.

Full lineup below...

DOWNLOAD: Carnivores - "Pillow Talk" (ft. Bradford Cox) (MP3)

Carnivores

Carnivores are a garage rock band from Atlanta, and they've already got the ins with the big hitters in the ATL garage rock scene, including Black Lips -- whose frontman Cole Alexander sings on "Sinking In Your Automobile" from their newest record, Second Impulse -- and Deerhunter -- whose singer Bradford Cox appears on their non-album track, "Pillow Talk" (MP3 above) and whose former bassist Josh Fauver released their record on his Army of Bad Luck label. The band have just given a trippy video treatment to the Cole Alexander collaboration, and that video makes its premiere in this post. Check it out, along with a stream of the full album and the track with Bradford Cox, below.

Carnivores also have a few shows coming up, and one of those happens in NYC at Shea Stadium on Halloween (10/31), and in Halloween cover show spirit, they'll be playing songs by The B-52s (but probably mostly songs from their own new album). Rounding out the lineup is three solid local bands also playing songs by other bands, Ava Luna (Tom Tom Club), Caged Animals (The Velvet Underground) and Bueno (Wu-Tang Clan). Admission is $8 with a costume and $10 without. Flyer below.

All dates are listed, along with the video and streams, below...

NOTE: We've also announced our Friday & Saturday BV shows

Jacco Gardner @ Mercury Lounge in March (more by PSquared Photography)
Jacco

One of the best parts about CMJ is the day shows that are often free and give you a chance to see live music and grab a bev on your lunch break (or call in sick). To give you a chance to plan your early afternoon ahead of time, we're giving you tomorrow's (Thursday's) daytime picks today (Wednesday). You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all shows, and here are some highlights...

The Bots, TV Girl, Gems, The Preatures, Wild Club, Holychild, The Everywheres, School of Night, J Fernandez, The Range @ Pianos
Fellow music blog I Guess I'm Floating is back with its Floatingfest CMJ party on both floors of Pianos. A good chance to check out Australian CMJ buzz-band The Preatures and LA's TV Girl (one of our CMJ picks).

Satellite, The Darcys, Keren Ann, Mood Rings, Kan Wakan @ Ace Hotel (FREE)
If you like your day parties somewhere a bit fancier, you can catch Atlanta's atmospheric Mood Rings, Canadians The Darcys, Keren Ann and more for free in the lobby of the posh Ace Hotel. Music starts early here (11 AM).

Caged Animals, Echo Friendly, School of Night, Julia Weldon, Bent Shapes, The Moondoggies, J Fernandez, Slow Down Molasses @ Cake Shop (FREE)
This is NYC Taper's annual day party and he's always got a lot of good bands playing, including Boston's Bent Shapes and locals Caged Animals. Can't make the show? He'll have downloadable recordings sometime after.

Ski Lodge, Au Revoir Simone, Saint Rich, Wild Club @ Judson Memorial Church (FREE)
Broadcasting from Judson Memorial Church (part of CMJ Fest HQ), KEXP brings in some of the week's biggest bands for live on-air performances that you can attend too.

Half Moon Run, Ghost Wave, Traumahelikopter, Birth of Joy, Prata Vetra, Instrumenti @ Knitting Factory (FREE)
Filter Magazine brings its Culture Collide festival to NYC in day party form with a pretty good line-up, including Montreal's Half Moon Run and New Zealand's Ghost Wave who are better than their name may have led to to believe.

Jacco Gardner, Ghost Wave, Tweens, Doug Keith, Casual Sex, John Murry, Ski Lodge @ Mission Sound Recording (FREE)
This is a pretty killer line-up, playing at Williamsburg recording studio Mission Sound Recording. Jacco Gardner and Tweens both made our list of 30 Artists to Check Out and we dig Ski Lodge and Ghost Wave as well.

Ratking, Ava Luna, Jamaican Queens, Krill, Calvin Love, Crispy Hexx, Young Oprah Winfrey @ Muchmore's (FREE)
This free My Social List day party features indie rappers Ratking, funk-punk collective Ava Luna, nasally indie rockers Krill, lo-fi pop dude Calvin Love and more. Noon-6.

Kirin J Callinan, TOPS, Pegasus Warning, Shy Hunters, Weeknight @ Bowery Electric ($5)
Sam Mickens is throwing this $5 day party at Bowery Electric (or free with CMJ badge), that's being headlined at 5 PM by crazy weird one-man band Kirin J Callinan, who is sure to put the "party" in "day party." Arbutus-signed Montreal band TOPS is on right before him at 4:15 and they're worth catching too.

Psychic Twin, Diamond Bones, Manicanparty, Palehound, Dark North, Clementine and the Galaxy, And the Kids
The band we most want to see at this one is Palehound, who is about to release her Bent Nail EP (stream it on Stereogum) on Exploding In Sound Records (the former home of her friends Speedy Ortiz). It's an excellent EP, pulling equally from quiet anti-folk and abrasive noise rock. She's on at 4 PM.

School of Night @ Mercury Lounge - 10/11/13
School of Night

The Antlers have been pretty quiet lately because they're in the studio working on a new album, but one of the members, Darby Cicci, has been less quiet with his new side project, School of Night. His debut self-titled EP just came out this week (10/15) via Minus Green, and if you're a fan of the airy, layered indie pop that The Antlers make (or Grizzly Bear), you'll probably dig this EP too. The whole thing can be streamed, along with the video for its track "Fire Escape" (directed by Darby himself), below.

Just ahead of the EP's release, School of Night played a Mercury Lounge show last Friday (10/11), where Antlers singer Peter Silberman made a guest appearance during his set. Pictures from that show are in this post. Grand Resort opened, but we missed them.

School of Night also has more shows scheduled, including two this week for CMJ. Both shows happen on Thursday (10/17). First, he plays the I Guess I'm Floating party at Pianos (he's on upstairs at 2:30), and then he heads next door to the NYCTaper party at Cake Shop, which he plays at 4:30. Both of those shows are totally free.

All dates are listed, along with full lineups for those shows, more Mercury Lounge pics, EP stream and video, below...

Sondre Lerche @ MHOW, 2011 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Sondre Lerche

The CMJ Music Marathon starts today and runs through Saturday (10/19) and NYC, which has no shortage of worthy shows on any given night, and explodes into an overload of options. Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. We've got tonight's highlights here and more CMJ (and non-CMJ) options further down.

Geoffrey O'Connor, City Riots, Ball Park Music, Cub Sports, Gossling @ Cake Shop (DAY SHOW, FREE)
It's an entire afternoon of Australian artists, highlighted by Crayon Fields singer Geoffrey O'Connor.

Ghost Wave, Streets of Laredo, Electric Wire Hustle, Black City Lights, Tiny Ruins @ Le Poisson Rouge (FREE)
Tonight's the now-annual New Zealand showcase at LPR, with a disparate group of performers. We like the folk-y Tiny Ruins and the more VU-ish (if badly-named) Ghost Wave. This show is free and always a good way to start your CMJ.

Mark Lanegan, Sean Wheeler, Zander Schloss @ Gramercy Theatre
Mark Lanegan spent the mid-'80s up to the turn of the millennium fronting pioneering grunge band Screaming Trees, and has since done notable collaborations with Queens of the Stone Age, Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs), Isobel Campbell (Belle and Sebastian), and more. He's also a solo artist, and his newest record is a covers album that features his interpretations of John Cale, Nick Cave, Chelsea Wolfe, and many others.

Joanna Gruesome, The History of Apple Pie, Free Time, Celestial Shore, Body Parts, Weaves, Geoffrey O'Connor @ Ran Tea House
This will be the first CMJ shows for UK bands Joanna Gruesome (indiepop with fangs) and The History of Apple Pie (twee shoegaze) and the whole evening is pretty good. Moved from Baby's All Right (which won't open till Friday).

Brian Wilson, Jeff Beck @ Beacon Theater
The band who currently tours as The Beach Boys may not include their main songwriter Brian Wilson as a member, but Brian's on the road with fellow ex-Beach Boys Al Jardine and Dave Marks, plus guitar maestro Jeff Beck, playing a ton of favorites from The Beach Boys' career. Tonight's show is also special, because it's one of the few dates on the tour that also includes Blondie Chaplan, lead singer of Beach Boys tune "Sail On Sailor."

Hunters, Kirin J Callinan, PUP, Ovlov, Greys, Big Ups @ Cameo Gallery
In terms of younger, upcoming bands, this is one of the more stacked early-CMJ shows. Both NYC's Hunters and Australia's Kirin J Callinan have live shows that you won't forget, plus two killer punk bands are in from Toronto -- PUP and Greys -- and there's the Dinosaur Jr/Sonic Youth-y rockers Ovlov and Brooklyn punky post-hardcore kids Big Ups.

Glasser, Kelela, Empress Of, Kirin J Callinan, Lil' Jabba @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Glasser took three years to follow up her debut LP, but that sophomore record is finally out now, and she's celebrating with some appearances at CMJ. Openers here are great too, including promising R&B singer Kelela, art pop musician Empress Of, one-man looping machine Kirin J Callinan, and DJ Rashad associate Lil Jabba.

Placebo, Jesca Hoop @ Terminal 5
Glammy, gothy, androgenous, and more than a little melodramatic, Placebo know how to work all that to their advantage.

Milagres, Ghost Wave, Beach Day, The Box Tiger, CONJJJECTURE, Traumahelikopter, Owel @ Pianos
Lots of good bands on this Pianos bill, but one in particular worth highlighting is Owel, who make the kind of pretty, somewhat-technical emo that some people call "twinklecore," mixed with pretty epic alt-rock. They're on at 1 PM.

Tropic of Pisces, Ace Reporter, Courtney Barnett, Saint Rich, Spires, Total Slacker, COIN, Echo Friendly, Dream Shake @ Pianos
Also lots of good people on this Pianos bill, and the one we really think you shouldn't miss is Australia's Courtney Barnett, who mixes '60s-style psychedelic rock with witty songwriting. And actually if you're into that kind of psychedelia, don't miss Brooklyn's Spires either.

Sondre Lerche, TEEN, Wet, Saint Rich @ Bowery Ballroom
The Talkhouse, the website started by noted journalist Michael Azerrad which features musicians reviewing other musicians' CDs, is presenting tonight's solid showcase headlined by Norway's charming Sondre Lerche.

Cults, Lucius, Conway, Yup Deceiver (DJ) @ Brooklyn Bowl
Cults' new album, Static, is out today and this is a record release show of sorts, which is free with RSVP (or your CMJ badge).

Nine Inch Nails, Godspeed You! Black Emperor @ Prudential Center
Trent Reznor and crew released their first NiN record in five years and their tour with equally intense openers Godspeed are in the NY area for two shows, this being the second.

Hippy, Caged Animals, Norwegian Arms, Radical Dads, Spirit Plate @ Muchmore's
If you're coming to CMJ from out of town and want to catch some of Brooklyn's local indie rock talent, this unofficial showscase with Hippy, Radical Dads and Caged Animals is a very good option.

Main Attrakionz, Davinci C, Hefna Gwap, Good Kids @ Santos Party House (FREE)
There's not too much rap at CMJ, and this show isn't actually an official CMJ show anyway, but it's a good warm up for the week, and totally free.

Low Fat Getting High, Big Ups, Vulture Shit, Flagland, Hive Bent, A Guide to Rational Living @ Shea Stadium
These local punk bands team up together a lot, but if you're into intense, rowdy DIY shows, it's one hell of a team.

Iceage, Pharmakon, Believer/Law, Cold Ones @ The Acheron
Danish punks Iceage have hit NYC a few times this year, and this two-night stand at Acheron will be their last one before the year ends. Even when they play a bigger place like Bowery Ballroom, Iceage act like they're in a tiny punk joint, so they should feel right at home here. If you're going, don't miss industrial noise artist Pharmakon and Cult of Youth-related EBM band Believer/Law. UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Pharmakon dropped off the show.

Lovelife, Alec Benjamin, Kirin J Callinan @ The Standard
Aussie artist Kirin J. Callinan, intense and gothy, highlights this free show at The Standard, one of many shows he's playing this week. You do need to RSVP by emailing aohayon@standardhotel.com.

The Story Pirates, Valley Lodge, Marcellus Hall, Tragedy @ Union Pool
This month's edition of variety show The Moon features The Story Pirates, who create an entire sketch comedy based on ideas from children; and Dave Hill's band Valley Lodge; and the tri-state area's finest metal Bee Gees tribute act, Tragedy.

More notable Tuesday options are listed below, but for all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

Caged Animals

As mentioned, Brooklyn's Caged Animals are set to release their sophomore album, In The Land Of Giants, next week (9/3) via Lucky Number. Vincent Cacchione and the rest of the band widen their scope on LP #2, but still retain that intimacy and melodicism that was inherent in their debut. You can hear for yourself as the album is streamable below now in this post.

The band will also start their tour with Darwin Deez next week which will wind its way back to NYC on September 29 at Knitting Factory. Tickets for that show are still available.

Album stream and full tour schedule below...

A Place to Bury Strangers at MHOW in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
APTBS

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

A Place to Bury Strangers, Bleeding Rainbow, Potty Mouth, Shark? @ Death By Audio
Last time APTBS played DbA (the equivalent of a house show), they brought in their own PA and light show making for total sensory overload. Along for the ride: Philly shoegazers Bleeding Rainbow, Potty Mouth and Shark?

Red Fang, Doomriders, Low Fat Getting High @ 285 Kent Avenue
It's gonna get loud, and probably pretty rowdy, at 285 Kent tonight with this free show (RSVPed out) that includes Pacific Northwest sludge from Red Fang, the Converge-related Doomriders, and melodic punk from Brooklyn's Low Fat Getting High. Get there early, because this whole bill is ridiculous.

Modern English, Jangula @ Mercury Lounge
Sure, most people only know "I Melt with You" but Modern English had a string of good records in the early '80s on 4AD and are currently working on a new album with the core of the original band.

The Cult @ Roseland Ballroom
Gothy mystic rockers The Cult will bring the big riffs of their 1987 album, Electric, and playing that record in full. You'll probably get "She Sells Sanctuary" and "Fire Woman" too.

Blues Control, Mad Nanna, Free Time @ 252 Norman Rooftop (4 PM)
This is a rooftop show (there's a rain contingency too) with Drag City's Blues Control, plus two Aussie bands: Mad Nanna and Free Time. It's also got a 4 PM start, so duck out of work early.

A$AP Ferg, Mister Cee, DJ Spynfo, DJ Enuff @ Webster Hall
A$AP Ferg's Trap Lord is out this week, and while it might not be as diverse as his pal A$AP Rocky's recent album, it's at least as fun. Tonight he celebrates it at the Girls & Boys party at Webster Hall, which is doubling as a Trap Lord release show.

George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ Beekman Beer Garden
The funk/soul legend comes to NYC for an outdoor show tonight, which should make for a pretty great time.

Golden Gurls, Bored Spies (ex SEAM), Bedfellows @ Cake Shop
Featuring ex members of Seam and Bitch Magnet, Bored Spies make post-rock with a strong melodic stream. Stream a couple tracks below. Baltimore's Golden Gurls (not to be confused with UK band Golden Grrrls) make fuzzy indie rock reminiscent of early '90s college rock.

Kissing Is A Crime, Caged Animals, Shilpa Ray, Grand Resort, The Veda Rays, Vinyl Thief, The Ivorys @ Pianos
It's week two of Brooklyn-via-Dominican-Republic indiepop group Grand Resort's Pianos Residency and they've got a whole slew of other bands on the bill, giving you maximum value for your live music dollar.

Clarence, Herzog, PUP, Soda Bomb @ Shea Stadium
Toronto's PUP are just another of the excellent punk bands to come out in Canada in recent years, and you can catch them tearing things up in Brooklyn at Shea Stadium tonight.

Celestial Shore, Omhouse, Zula, Half Waif @ Silent Barn
Toronto's Omhouse are in Brooklyn tonight for this show that's rounded out by some excellent indie pop locals, Celestial Shore, Zula, and Half Waif. Stream a new Zula track, "Twin Loss," below.

Paul Banks, Albert Hammond Jr., Danny Masterson (DJ Mom Jeans set), Alexa Chung (DJ set), Fabrizio Moretti (DJ set), Devendra Banhart (DJ set), Special Guests @ The Bowery Hotel
This is a benefit for School of Seven Bells' Benjamin Curtis who is currently battling Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Tickets are still available.

New Power Generation, Secret Band @ City Winery
It's "Purple Week" at City Winery and tonight's show is not Prince (or an artist formerly known as that) but it is members of his sometimes backing band, New Power Generation, plus the promise of "very special guests." For the price of these tickets, they better be special.

Bret Michaels @ B.B. King Blues Club
You may not know this but actor, director, screenwriter, producer and reality television personality Brett Michaels used to be in a popular hard rock band in the '80s and '90s. Look him up if you don't believe us.

'Krush Groove' @ Videology (FREE)
BV's own Bill Pearis hosts this screening of 1985 hip hop musical which tells the story of Def Jam Records and Run DMC, with many of the bands playing themselves. (Russell Simmons is played by Blair Underwood, though.) Also featuring Fat Boys' "All You Can Eat"! Free.

He's a '90s bitch: Cookie Monster
IMAGE

In the course of a week here at BrooklynVegan, we post a lot of videos. This week, for instance, featured new ones from MINKS, Chalk and Numbers, Chaz Chance & the Prophets, Medicine, Crocodiles, MGMT and more. But yet there are more videos still that we didn't get around to, which is where we are now. Check out clips from CHVRCHES, King Krule, Caged Animals, Cookie Monster covering Icona Pop, CYHSY, Schoolboy Q & Kendrick Lamar, Dave Hill onstage with Phil Anselmo, and a Mumford & Sons video that even haters might...this was okay. Those and more, below.

DOWNLOAD: Shark? - California Girls (MP3)

IMAGE

It's summer and sharks are on the brain. Did you watch Sharknado last night? Mia Farrow did. Meanwhile, Brooklyn indie quartet Shark? have been fighting the good fight for about four years now, and continue to gig a lot. You have probably seen them, or maybe just missed them.

The band have just wrapped up their new album, Savoir, which will be out this fall on Old Flame (also home of Potty Mouth). You can download the appropriately summery (with a hint of thunderstorms) first single, "California Girls," above and watch the video below. You can pre-order Savior via the band's PledgeMusic campaign which has three days left.

As mentioned, Shark? play with labelmates Potty Mouth, plus headliners Caged Animals and TOONS (that's a really good line-up) at Shea Stadium on July 25. No advance tickets for that one, and it's currently Shark?'s only upcoming show.

Video below...

Continue reading "Shark? ready 'Savior' (stream a track)"

IMAGE

Caged Animals have released details of their new album. In the Land of Giants will be out September 3 via Lucky Number and you can stream opening track "Too Much Dark" below. And if you haven't seen the baboon-filled video for "Cindy + Me" yet, you can watch that below too.

The band have a few local shows coming up: July 18 at Mercury Lounge with Diamond Doves, Other Colors, Springs (tickets on sale); they're on the bill for the Potty Mouth show at Shea Stadium on July 25 (Shark? and TOONS too); and will play Shea Stadium again on August 17 with Crushed Out, Kissing Is A Crime, and Rosy Street.

Then in September, Caged Animals will be going out with their labelmate Darwin Deez on Darwin's previously announced tour that includes a NYC stop at Knitting Factory on September 29 (tickets).

All dates are listed, along with streams and videos, below.

Potty Mouth

Northampton punk-inspired indie rockers Potty Mouth, who we profiled back in January, had been working on their debut LP this year, and that album, titled Hell Bent, will finally be out on September 17 via Old Flame (the label that put out Cloud Nothings' "Didn't You" 7").

The band released the video for the album's first single, "Damage," earlier this year, and have since released another album cut, "The Spins." Both tracks (and the whole album for that matter) are a dry, deceptively-slacker approach to melodic punk that should appeal to a generation of kids who grew up seeing as much in Nirvana as they did in blink-182. That's the album art above, and the tracklist and song streams are below.

Potty Mouth will be kicking off a summer tour prior to the release of their new album, which begins in NYC this month. First they'll play the July 24 installment of Summerscreen before a screening of The Craft, and the next day they'll play Shea Stadium (7/25) with like-minded Brooklyn rockers Shark? and two other Brooklyn bands, Caged Animals and Toons.

All dates are listed, along with those song streams, below...

Light Heat

Some of you may remember early '00s Philadelphia band Mazarin that broke up after their 2005 album, We're Already There. Frontman Quentin Stoltzfus has been quiet since but has been continually working on music and debuted his new project, Light Heat, quietly last summer. And with help from Paul Maroon, Matt Barrick, Peter Bauer and Walter Martin of The Walkmen, Stoltzfus recorded Light Heat's debut album, The Mirror, which is out this week on Domino-affiliated label Ribbon Music. Not that dissimilar to what he did in Mazarin, Light Heat make melodic psych pop with liberal doses of harmony and pounding percussion. It's a nice record; you can stream a couple tracks below and listen to the whole thing via Spotify.

Light Heat are playing two NYC shows in celebration of the album's release this week: tonight (6/26) at Glasslands with quality support from Caged Animals and Life Size Maps (tickets); and a late show (doors at 9:30 PM) at Mercury Lounge on Thursday (6/27) with The Dardys (tickets).

Streams below...

Caged Animals

As mentioned, Caged Animals will release their still-untitled second album at some point this year via Lucky Number. Still no details on that album, but they have just released the video for their new single "Cindy + Me." Filmed in LA with director Carlos Lopez Estrada, the clip puts singer Vincent Caccione to the test in a lab run by a bunch baboons. Caged Animals indeed. It's funny and more than a little terrifying (to me at least) and you can watch it below.

Caged Animals have a couple local shows coming up: a TBA show at Northside Festival and then June 26 at Glasslands with Light Heat. Tickets to the Glasslands show are on sale now.

Caged Animals @ Bowery Ballroom 4/3/2013 (more by PSquared Photography)
Caged Animals

Caged Animals recently wrapped up a tour with Darwin Deez and are finally about to unleash some new songs on the world. While the Brooklyn crew haven't revealed details on their new album, due sometime this year on Lucky Number, they have just released the first track from it, a catchy, synth-driven number called "Cindy + Me." Says frontman Vincent Cacchione, "It's a song I wrote about stealing cars and running away from home when you're a teenager. For all the earth's eternal misfit's, I offer this song to you." You can stream it (via Stereogum) below.

Part Time
Part TIme

San Francisco's Part Time released their debut LP, What Would You Say?, last year on Mexican Summer which plays like a hazy remembrance of '80s memories that were probably originally held by Ric Ocasek. It's very sports jacket with pushed up sleeves kind of music (aka very Ariel Pink) and you can stream it below via Rdio. The group will be on the East Coast for a show at Glasslands on November 18 with Splash, Limited and Caged Animals. Tickets are on sale now.

The show is also notable as the second live show from Limited which is a new synthpop project from Alex Craig of Big Troubles. Limited just released its debut single on New Images, the label run by Matt Mondanile of Ducktails/Real Estate. Like with BT, there's still a shoegazy vibe to it, but Craig here is reaching back to the New Romantic era for inspiration as well. If you liked the Ice Choir album, you'll want to check this out and you can stream both sides of the single below. Live, Limited are a three piece.

Splash, of course, fit right in with the night's vibe here, not only sounding but looking like they dropped out of 1986, some kind of unholy mix New Edition and Starship (also by way of Ariel Pink). I will say no matter what you think of the music they play, they're are pretty good at it and put on an entertaining live show. Just be prepared to be anointed with glitter when the fun begins.

Caged Animals are kind of the odd band out here, not owing their sound to any particular decade, merely making very catchy pop. Look for two new releases (an album and an EP) in the new year. Meanwhile, Caged Animals also play tonight (11/9) at Shea Stadium with Jamaican Queens, Phone Tag, and Passalacqua.

Streams and flyer are below.

Caged Animals at Fulton Stall Market 8/19/2012
Caged Animals

Sunday (8/19) was the third installment of this year's Sound Bites Series (that I curate, full disclosure) that happened down at Fulton Stall Market. Caged Animals, who've played the BV-curated Brooklyn Night Bazar show and SXSW showcase in the past year, did a someone stripped-down acoustic show for a mix of fans and tourists and the band's laid-back, positive vibe made for a chill Sunday afternoon.

Caged Animals have been busy this summer making their new album, which ended up turning into two new records. The first is a concept EP that'll be out in November, with their proper new album due early 2013. Meanwhile, the band's next show is September 8 at Muchmore's with Give To Light + Rosy Street.

This Sunday (8/26) is the final Sound Bites show of the season, with Ski Lodge. As always, I'll be DJing an hour or so beforehand and the band will be on at 3PM. More info here. More pictures from Caged Animals set are below.
