Cold Showers

Cold Showers have released a new video for "BC" which comes from their recent Dais-released LP Love and Regret. Check out that video below, along with a stream of their whole album (via Rdio).

Look for Cold Showers on the road in 2013, playing a select set of US dates opening for Veronica Falls. Make sure and head to Bowery Ballroom early on March 8 to catch them. Tickets are still available.

All tour dates are listed below, along with that video and album stream.

Veronica Falls

As mentioned previously, Veronica Falls' new album, Waiting for Something to Happen, will be out February 12 on Slumberland Records and if you haven't heard the record's first single, "Teenage," you can stream it below, as well as watch a video of the band performing the song in a Portugese cemetery. The song is fairly indicative of the new album which is a little more gentle, sonically, but ups the number of hooks. It's a winner.

Shortly after the album's release, Veronica Falls will head across the Atlantic for a North American tour that will hit Bowery Ballroom on March 8 with openers Cold Showers and Cheetahs. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (11/30) at noon.

A list of all tour dates, song stream, and video, are below.

Weekend @ SXSW 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Weekend

So we've been wondering what was up with this Weekend show at Cameo on Tuesday (9/25) for a while, as to why the San Francisco band was playing this one off NYC date. Well, now we know -- the band has moved to Brooklyn. Because clearly they thought they weren't paying enough rent in SanFran. Nonetheless, I am personally excited at the opportunity to see the band play more often. Welcome to the neighborhood, guys!

And those opportunities basically start now. In addition to Tuesday's show at Cameo with ERAAS and Woodsman (tickets are still available), Weekend play 285 Kent on October 4 with Cold Showers (who were terrific last night at Glasslands and also play WIERD on 10/2) and will be joining the throngs during CMJ.

The band have also posted of rough mix of "Sirens" which will feature on the band's sophomore album which will be out in 2013. Stream that below, along with a list of all dates and the Cameo show flyer.

DOWNLOAD: Cold Showers - Violent Cries (MP3)

Cold Showers

Los Angeles' Cold Showers are currently on tour, playing Glasslands tonight (9/20) with The Soft Moon and ERAAS on their way to the Pop Montreal which started last night and runs through the weekend. Tickets are still available.

After Pop Montreal, Cold Showers will head back across the Canadian border, playing the Midwest before heading back to NYC to play WIERD night at Home Sweet Home on October 2. It will be a release party for Cold Showers' debut album, Love and Regret, which comes out 10/9 on Mexican Summer. Recalling late-'80s bands like Red Lorry Yellow Lorry and Sisters of Mercy, it's dark and brooding but with ample hooks and melody, perfect for the fall weather ahead. The group just released a new track from the album, "Violent Cries," which you can download above or stream below along with previously-released "BC."

Meanwhile, ERAAS' self-titled debut will be out October 2 and is on the shadowier side of the street, relying on heavy atmosphere, tribal rhythms and plaintive vocals to pull the listener into their world. You can stream a couple tracks from their album below. ERAAS will also open for San Francisco post punks Weekend at Cameo on Tuesday (9/25) (rescheduled from August) and tickets to that show are still available.

And headliners The Soft Moon release their second album, Zeros, on October 30. Like their debut, it owes more than a little to mid-'80s 4AD and WaxTrax! discographies and is maybe even more creepy/claustrophobic than their first, loaded with driving, watery basslines and deep-freeze synths. Check out recently-released track "Insides" from the album below. If you can't make it to the show tonight, The Soft Moon will be back to play Bowery Ballroom on October 30 with Pop. 1280 and Group Rhoda. Tickets are still available.

Craft Spells

West Coast janglers Craft Spells are heading East next month to play Cincinatti's Midpoint Music Festival (September 27 - 29) which also features the likes of Grizzly Bear, The Walkmen, Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells and many more. Tickets for the fest are still available and the whole line-up is at the bottom of this post.

Before the festival, Craft Spells will be in NYC for a show at Glasslands on September 24 with new new romantics Ice Choir. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

You can stream Craft Spells' new-ish EP, Gallery, plus check out the whole Midpoint Music Fest line-up, below.

The Soft Moon

As discussed, The Soft Moon will hit Glasslands on September 20 (tickets), the first of a leg of mostly-East Coast dates before heading out for something more extensive in late October to coincide with the release of the new LP Zeros which is out October 30 on Captured Tracks. Just in time for Halloween. Those dates include another NYC show which happens on the date of the album's release, October 30 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (8/17) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (8/15) at noon. Stream the new track "Die Life" below.

If you're heading to Glasslands, or even if you aren't, make sure and peep the new track by Cold Showers first: "BC." The song, streaming below, comes from Cold Showers' new LP Love and Regret due via Dais Records on October 9.

ERAAS are also on board to support Soft Moon/Cold Showers at Glasslands on 9/20, and they too have a new LP on the way. The ex-members of Apse are preparing the self-titled LP for release on October 2 via Brooklyn label Felte Records. Stream some new material below. If you can't catch ERAAS on 9/20, catch them at Cameo on 8/28 when they support Weekend with Woodsman. Tickets are still available.

All streams and the updated Soft Moon dates are listed below.

It was a very good day. Bill wrote about some of the bands who played on Friday including Nardwuar's band The Evaporators who definitely put on one of the day & week's most memorable performance for those who caught it. As Bill wrote, "At one point, one group of people were holding him up while another group were holding his organ (hello!) while he played it... and then he soon climbed on top of it. There were costume changes, group singalongs, question and answer sessions and a lot of really fun garage punk. One of my Top 5 sets of SXSW 2012."

Special thanks to our official backline providers Vox, Blackstar and Korg, and thank you to NadaMoo for supplying free vegan treats, and to Honest Tea for the tea.

The Black Angels closed the day off right with a set of their 60s-influenced, psych rock n roll to an oferflowing house on the outdoor stage that saw a full crowd throughout the day thanks to names like Polica, Youth Lagoon and Tennis.

So many bands, so little time, so experience it with the pictures that continue below (and stay tuned for more on BV Austin)...

The Jesus & Mary Chain @ SXSW (jnipmex)
Jesus and Mary Chain

The Jesus & Mary Chain played a SXSW show last night, Thursday (3/15), at the Belmont (same venue we threw our Daniel Johnston/Built to Spill shindig in on Tuesday). It was one of their four scheduled U.S. shows this month, though the first two were postponed/cancelled due to some visa issues. During their Austin set, to quote @liveflowers, "some guy just jumped on stage & stripped naked next to jim reid before getting thrown off stage." Stay tuned for pics as they surface. Check out a picture of the setlist from the 3/13 show, HERE.

Icy and great LA band Cold Showers fittingly opened the showcase, AND will play their very next show at noon TODAY (3/16) at Hotel Vegan in Austin (at Hotel Vegas, 1500 E. 6th St, Austin, TX). They are the band that was previously marked as "TBA" and join a lineup that includes Polica, The Twilight Sad, Tennis, Youth Lagoon, TRUST, Light Asylum, Eleanor Friedberger, The Black Angels, and many more. If you're in Austin, stop by! Check out a video of Cold Showers performing in "Room 205" below...
