Lonnie Holley at MHOW in 2013 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Outsider artist Lonnie Holley, who we wrote about around the time of his shows with Deerhunter and Bill Callahan and who has made fans out of (and since collaborated with) Deerhunter's Bradford Cox and Black Lips' Cole Alexander, will return to NYC for two shows this week. First, he plays a night show on Tuesday (4/15) at Baby's All Right with no wave legend and experimental composer Arto Lindsay (of DNA and others), and Georgia. Georgia also joins Lonnie for his set, and maybe Arto will too? Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Other Music, which will turn 20 next year, will open at 10 AM for RSD. It doesn't quite have the room for in-store performances and shopping at the same time (like at Rough Trade), so they have up to this point just booked musicians as DJs. Lonnie's set will be the one actual live performance this year though. The rest of the day is DJs and the lineup includes Pop. 1280, Com Truise, Xeno & Oaklander, Pete Swanson, Matana Roberts and more. Full schedule is listed below.
Since releasing The Way Things Fall last year, Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus have been back in ice-cold ADULT. mode. The duo will be in Asheville, NC later this month for Moogfest. Shortly after that, ADULT. will play Brooklyn's Verboten on May 7 with Xeno & Oaklander and Stallone The Reducer opening. Tickets are on sale now.
In anticipation of their Asheve apearance, ADULT. made a mix made entirely of label Ghostly, International's artists, including HTRK, Shigeto, John Foxx, Com Truise and Xeno & Oaklander. You can stream that (via XLR8R) below.
We mentioned earlier that Real Estate would be playing the 2014 Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco, where they've actually got two shows at The Independent: February 28 with Dream Boys, and March 1 with Dominant Legs. What we haven't done is run down this year's fest which happens at venues all over San Francisco from February 25 - March 2.
In addition to Real Estate, this year's Noise Pop (now in its 21st year) features such acts as Throwing Muses, Cold Cave, Mark Mulcahy, Mikal Cronin, Bob Mould, No Age, The Fresh & Onlys, Dr. Dog, Courtney Barnett, Cheatahs, and lots more. Badges that get you into all events are on sale now.

Passion Pit at MSG earlier this month (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

Com Truise at Sasquatch 2012 (more by Chris Graham and Rae Graham)
Com Truise (aka Seth Haley) plays NYC a lot, but it's usually at venues like Music Hall of Williamsburg and Gramercy, so it should be a pretty intimate night for Com Truise fans when Seth plays a solo live set at Glasslands on February 22. Not to mention there will be an opening set from Beacon, along with one from Nitemoves (not to be confused with Domino-signed band Night Moves) and DJ duties being covered by Heathered Pearls. Tickets for that show are on sale now. His only other dates that we're aware of at the moment are in Honolulu and LA.
Nothing formal has been announced yet, but on New Year's Day Com Truise posted a facebook status saying that he's "looking forward to bringing you lots of new music this year." Meanwhile, you can stream his 2012 single, "Chemical Legs," and check out a list of all upcoming tour dates below...
RJD2's record collection?
RJD2's NYC New Year's Eve show at Gramercy Theater, which is on sale now, will be with Com Truise and Chrome Sparks (who will DJ). Chrome Sparks (not to be confused with Chrome Canyon or Chrome Cranks) meanwhile can be found at Glasslands on 12/14 with producer Gigamesh (whose tour also brings to the Delancey one night earlier). Com Truise has no other shows scheduled at the moment.
RJD2 recently created a Spotify playlist of songs he's been listening to lately, and filmed a new video as part of T-Mobile sponsored series called "Life Without Limits". In it he talks about his career, and basically how he lives his life. You can watch that, along with more dates for artists mentioned above, below...
Com Truise at Sasquatch 2012 (more by Chris Graham)
Com Truise appear to be gearing up for a tour this fall, for which they'll be taking out some solid openers -- Bonde Do Role (who resurfaced as a 3-piece this year) and Poolside (who released their debut LP, Pacific Standard Time, this year). A full tour hasn't been announced yet but many shows have been revealed, including a CMJ show in NYC, which happens at Gramercy Theatre on October 20. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (8/24) at 10 AM with a Live Nation/Music Geeks presale starting Thursday (8/23) at 10 AM.
Com Truise recently contributed "Chemical Legs" to Adult Swim for their Singles Program. You can download that at the Adult Swim website or stream it, along with a list of all currently known dates, below.
The full list of artists confirmed for the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon so far is below...
7:32pm Metric wrapped up a touch early; partly because one new song ("Lost Kitten") was stopped 10 seconds into it and Emily decided to strike it from the set. Aside from that odd error, Metric played a fair set. They cited the show as their "public debut" of Synthetica and they did play mostly new material (7 out of 11 songs), most of which sounds promising. It's always hard to judge new material accurately as the audience doesn't know it so it always comes across slightly weak or stiff. Metric opened their set with newbie "Artificial Nocturne" (also the album's opener). It was one of the stronger new tracks. The other stand outs were "Youth Without Youth" (when played live it seemed to lose it's sluggishness of it's studio version) and "Nothing But Time", a synth/piano number that builds each verse until drums kick in and the song finishes with a flourish of Emily Haines' Pro-One synth. The band closed with an acoustic version "Gimme Sympathy" that had pretty much the entire amphitheater singing along. [The Province]Here's more pictures from the super-stacked Saturday (5/26) line-up of the Sasquatch Music Festival which happened Memorial Day Weekend in Gorge, Washington -- including Metric, St. Vincent, The Shins, Dum Dum Girls, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Couer de Pirate, Sol, Com Truise and more. The first set from Saturday (5/26) are HERE and Friday (5/25) are HERE. More from Day 2 below and still more Sasquatch pics to come.

Princeton, NJ's Com Truise and Tobacco teamed up for some dates, including one in Philly last night (4/18) and another in Brooklyn tonight, Thursday (4/19) at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Beacon, Shine 2009, and Selebrities. Tickets are still available.
The shows with Com Truise are the only dates listed on Tobacco's calendar other than a show at Poughkeepsie's Vassar College on 4/20. Com Truise, on the other hand, will continue touring the US this month, head to the UK in May, and was just announced on the lineup of this summer's North Coast Music Festival in Chicago along with the Rapture, Dan Deacon, Big Boi and many more.

Here are some pictures. More of them, with a video from the show, below...

Purity Ring @ Public Assembly - BV-CMJ 2011
The show will be a mini celebration of what appears to be a signing to 4AD (and Last Gang) for an album that will be released 7/24/2012.
Purity Ring, who were just added to Pitchfork Fest (which their now-labelmate Grimes is also playing), also have a few other shows scheduled (though not sure at the moment if one of them is with Dirty Projectors at Prospect Park). All dates and a new set of pictures from Purity Ring's BrooklynVegan-CMJ set at Public Assembly, below...
"Following last year's 10th anniversary, which crushed previous attendance records and set a new mark for the speed with which tickets sold out, the Sasquatch! Music Festival unveils its 2012 lineup which once again features 4 days of music. The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced programming...in a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 25-28 (Memorial Day Weekend) at The Gorge, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA."The Sasquatch!

Neon Indian at Governors Island in 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)
Neon Indian is currently on a tour that will pass through NYC this week for CMJ and hit Webster Hall on Friday (10/21). Tickets for this show are still on sale. Neon Indian recently announced even more dates too. They're all listed bleow.

The venue is located at 216 Duffield Street in Brooklyn and the show runs from 2 to 6 PM.
Com Truise, who is on the Neon Indian tour, but wasn't initially scheduled to appear at the Webster Hall show, will in fact be on the bill. They also play an International Tapes party on Friday (10/21) at 285 Kent with DOM, Laurel Halo, Porcelain Raft, La Big Vic, and Beige.

One Thirty BPM: Now that you're going out on your own tour do you feel extra pressure as the headliner?Glowsticks came out to play at Active Child's sold out headlining show with Com Truise & Young Athletes League at Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night (9/10). Here are some pictures. They continue below...
Active Child (Pat Grossi): Of course! We've done five support tours in the US and UK and Europe and there's still pressure doing that because you're live and you want to impress and get new fans and impress the band you're opening for; there's all this pressure. But then when you're the headliner everyone's there to see you so you don't want to get shown up!
One Thirty BPM: Do you get any comfort from knowing that you're playing to an audience that will be more familiar with your material?
Active Child (Pat Grossi): Yeah, I think so. It seems like every show I play I get more comments from the people who have never heard of me before, but I'm definitely excited to play for an audience that is there specifically for my music.

Neon Indian - 'Era Extrana'
Back in April, we mentioned that Neon Indian (aka Alan Palomo) was working on a new LP, though little information was available. It's since been revealed that the album will be titled Era Extraña and will be released "on Palomo's own Static Tongues imprint in conjunction with Mom + Pop Music in North America, Transgressive Records in the United Kingdom and Europe, Pop Frenzy/Inertia in Australia and Big Nothing Records in Japan." That's the cover art above.
Alan, who hates the term 'chillwave' anyway, further distances himself on this album from the 'genre.' While bands like Toro y Moi and Memory Tapes are practically full blown disco acts, with Era Extraña, Neon Indian is diving more into the psychedelic pop he created on his 2009 debut Psychic Chasms. Though he's no longer using those sometimes-tongue-in-cheek song titles like "Deadbeat Summer" and "Terminally Chill" to let you know his synth pop is more on the experimental side. He's instead exploring new sounds and musical themes that demand to be taken more seriously. Running throughout the album is a three-part instrumental piece titled "Heart: Attack", "Heart: Decay", and "Heart: Release". He flirts with late '80s shoegaze on the guitar-driven "Blindside Kiss." Like other lo-fi artists are starting to do, he's embracing clearer pop vocals on some of the tracks like "Polish Girl" and "Hex Girlfriend," but the most interesting element of the new album is the experimentation with electronics. Era Extraña doesn't come off as the work of a pop artist with a keyboard and reverb, but rather an experimental artist who understands pop.
The video for "Heart: Attack" surfaced with that initial album announcement in April and now the one for "Heart: Decay" is available as well. Check both out below. The album was produced and mixed with Dave Fridmann, known for his work with The Flaming Lips, who Alan recorded a 4-track EP with earlier this year. The EP was even more far-out and experimental than anything by either artist involved. Vinyl pressings of that EP sold out pretty quickly but there are some available on ebay. Or try mediafire at your own risk.
Neon Indian will tour in support of the album this September and October. Whether Danny of the Big Sleep is still on guitar by that point, like he was at Governors Ball, remains to be seen but is likely if the tour doesn't coincide with the release of the new Big Sleep album (which is coming soon). All dates are listed below.
The Neon Indian tour concludes in NYC on October 21 at Webster Hall which means the show is probably part of CMJ. Check ticketmaster for Webster Hall tickets (or maybe wait to see if you can get in with your CMJ badge).
While Neon Indian's music is soaked in nostalgia, the Webster Hall show and other October dates are being opened by the futuristic electro-pop duo Purity Ring. As of now, the Webster show will be Purity Ring's first in NYC. Com Truise also open some dates on the tour.

Active Child at Le Poisson Rouge in May (more by David Andrako)
Pat Grossi aka Active Child will follow up last year's Curtis Lane EP with the full length album You Are All I See on August 23 via Vagrant Records.

Stream the How to Dress Well collaboration called "Playing House" below.
Active Child will go on his first headlining tour with a full band in support of the album this August and September. The tour begins with a month-long residency at The Echo in LA followed by a month of North American dates with support from Com Truise and Chad Valley on select dates. The tour hits NYC on September 10 at Bowery Ballroom with Com Truise. Tickets for the NYC show are on sale now.
