Monomyth

Halifax, NS quartet Monomyth releaed their debut album, Saturnalia Regalia!, over the summer via Canadian label, Mint. I caught them while at Pop Montreal a couple weeks ago and was impressed:

Hailing from Halifax, NS and having all four members write and sing, I couldn't help but compare them a bit to Sloan. But Monomyth sound nothing like them though. Like Sloan, the styles of the songs vary wildly depending on who's singing (one of them clearly went through a jam band phase). But the songs are uniformly terrific, ranging from powerpop to warbly indiepop.
You can stream the album in full below. Monomyth will be heading to NYC for CMJ and as of this post have three shows on their schedule, all of which are free:
October 21 @ Pete's Candy Store (7:50 PM) | Riot Act Happy Hour Party

October 24 @ Cake Shop (1 PM) | Break Thru Radio Party

October 24 @ Pianos (4:50 PM) | Planetary Party

Those are Monomyth's only dates upcoming at the moment. Full line-ups and flyers for those parties are below. Also worth checking out Monomyth's video for LP track "Patsy" which, directed by Seth Smith, depicts a very weird wedding. It's creepy and funny and be sure to watch till the end (twist!). Note: the guy playing the father is Halifax scene legend Matthew Grimson. Watch it below.

ARMS at MHOW in March (more by Amanda Hatfield)
ARMS

Brooklyn band ARMS (the current project of former Harlem Shakes guitarist Todd Goldstein) will be paying tribute to some of their influences -- specifically Broadcast, Elliott Smith, Guided by Voices, They Might Be Giants, Matthew Dear, Thunder & Lightning, The Faces and Rufus Wainwright -- on a new covers album, Backwards Record, due out September 2 via Paper Garden Records. We've got the premiere of the video for their cover of GBV's lo-fi classic, "Goldheart Mountaintop Queen Directory." ARMS' take on the song is -- wait for it -- guided by voices. As in they've recorded the cover a capella. You can watch the video below.

ARMS also have two local shows coming up this weekend. First they play Mercury Lounge on Friday (8/15) with Conveyor (tickets), and then they play the Rooftop Films closing party on Saturday (8/16). Doors open at 8 for that, music at 8:30, and by 9 PM they'll be screening multiple short films. More details here.

GBV cover video, with LP artwork and tracklist, below...

Dinosaur Jr at Terminal 5 in 2012 (more by Gretchen Robinette)
Dino Jr

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Hudson Mohawke @ Webster Hall (Red Bull Music Academy)
As a prominent Kanye collaborator and one half of trap duo TNGHT, Hudson Mohawke is one of the current leaders in dance music, and for good reason. Tonight he returns to NYC for a Red Bull Music Academy show at Webster Hall.

Acid Mothers Temple, Perhaps @ Knitting Factory
Veteran Japanaese psych band Acid Mothers Temple kicked off their North American tour in NYC back in April, and now they end it here as well.

World Party @ City Winery
Karl Wallinger is still working on the new World Party album but in the meantime is back in North America, testing out new songs and playing old favorites too. This is the first of two NYC shows.

The Memories, The Lemons, Street Gnar @ Death by Audio
Like your pop with catchy bubblegum melodies, minimal accompaniment, and even less production value? Tonight's show -- all three bands have affiliations with Burger Records -- fits that bill.

Saint Rich, Mon Khmer, Conveyor @ Glasslands
An offshoot of Delicate Steve (role-reversal is probably a more correct term), Saint Rich keep things greasy with their brand of boogie riffs and laid-back grooves.

Lower, Survival @ Home Sweet Home
Lower make moody punk not unlike their Denmark neighbors in Iceage who recently became their labelmates, seeing as Lower have signed to Matador for their forthcoming album. This is their first of two NYC shows this week.

Dinosaur Jr., Screaming Females, Creepoid @ MHOW
Unlike many of their reunited '80s/'90s-era indie rock pals, Dinosaur Jr basically picked up where they left off with their 2005 reunion, and with three quality records out since then they haven't looked back. They're also partially responsible for making guitar solos cool in indie rock, which makes openers Screaming Females a perfect fit. And Creepoid, who do justice to '90s slowcore, are worth catching as well.

James Murphy, Eric Duncan @ Output
Maybe it's not the most exciting thing when even your favorite band does a DJ set, but when LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy (who was a DJ before starting LCD) takes to the boards, we at least know we're in for a unique treat that usually includes a handful of obscure disco gems.

Lycaon Pictus, Relations, Forts, Strange Kids @ Pianos
Drawing from a variety of postpunk influences, Relations make dark-hued but catchy, danceable pop, as heard on their debut album, Songbirds. Tonight's the final show of their May residency.

Black Breath, Mutilation Rites, Yautja, Theories @ Santos Party House
It's a great triple bill at Santos tonight with thrash devotees Black Breath, Brooklyn's sludge/crust/black/etc rippers Mutilation Rites, and the impressively weird but punishing Yautja.

Belle Mare, Modern Merchant, Drone Ranger, Turnip King @ Shea Stadium
London native Amelia Bushell and Thomas Servidone met at a Brooklyn open mic, the two bonded and soon Belle Mare was formed. The duo's 2013 debut, The Boat of the Fragile Mind, has a spare, delicate sound, hinging on Bushell's hushed, fragile (yet soulful) vocals and the production adds a lovely air of mystery.

Kommandant, Goat Torment, Manticore @ Paper Box
Missed Maryland Death Fest? Get a mouthful of rotting leftovers via this show. Unfortunately, New Zealand's blackened death bruisers, Diocletian, are no longer playing it.

Honduras, Painted Zeros, Huge Pupils, O-Face, ONWE @ Silent Barn
Honduras bring a lot of different influences to the table. A little garage, yes, but there's '80s/'90s British indie too. While it may not be anything you haven't exactly heard before, Honduras write very hooky songs and, as importantly, the bring a real energy to the performance.

Gregory Brothers, The Key of Awesome @ Mercury Lounge
You might know know them by name, but you know their work. The Gregory Brothers are the ones behind Autotune the News, "Double Rainbow" and the "Bed Intruder Song."

Phil Lesh & Friends @ Central Park Rumsey Playfield
We're sure The Grateful Dead are still loathed by many indie rockers out there, but not all. If you're at all interested, Phil & Friends put on great shows and the setlists are loaded with fan favorites.

American Sharks, Dirty Fences, Weird Womb @ Mercury Lounge
Last night, Texas stoner rockers American Sharks hit MHOW for an overload of riffs on their tour opening for Red Fang and Big Business. Tonight they take the headlining spot and it's a more garage rock-leaning bill overall that'll hopefully get the usually more staid Mercury Lounge crowd moving.

Slavve, EULA, Future Death, Fins @ Baby's All Right
It's gonna get loud at Baby's tonight with Brooklyn rock duo Slavve (members of Surfer Blood and Weird Wives), their Bloodmoss labelmates from Austin, Future Death, local noise rockers EULA and messy CT post-hardcore band Fins.

Big Terrific Comedy Show @ Cameo Gallery
Max Silvestri hosts the free weekly comedy show in the back of Williamsburg's Lovin' Cup. No word on who's performing tonight, but Max usually lets us know via his Twitter.

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

Loop / FKA twigs
LOOP
FKA TWIGS

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Loop, Purling Hiss, Donovan Blanc @ Le Poisson Rouge
Existing for a barely five years, UK psych band Loop were one of the most perfectly-named bands ever. Rarely bothering with verse-chorus-verse song structure, the South London group took a riff and added layer upon layer till it had its own gravitational field. They were heavy, man, and got heavier as they went along. Loop are back in action and are stopping in NYC tonight on their way to Austin Psych Fest.

I Break Horses, River Consoles @ Mercury Lounge
The last time I Break Horses played Mercury Lounge main horsebreaker Maria Lindén was just about too sick to play. Let's hope for better health this time through NYC, as her second album of noisy/beautriful synthgaze is alluring.

Cloud Cult @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Minnesota's orch-pop ensemble offer up "An evening with Cloud Cult," with two sets: one acoustic and one electric. There may be some visual arts being made during the show as well.

The Black Lips, Natural Child @ Webster Hall
Get greasy with two of garage rock's wilder acts: Atlanta's debaucherous Black Lips and Nashville's southern-fried Natural Child. Tickets are still available.

The Coathangers, Audacity, Ex-Humans, Weed @ Baby's All Right
There will be a lot of loud, scrappy guitars on this bill with garage punk from The Coathangers and Audacity, plus Vancouver's sludgy Weed.

Eaters, Yvette, Dan Friel, Future Punx DJ set @ Glasslands
If you dig synthy, soundtracky music (John Carpenter, Goblin) or darkwave, Brooklyn duo Eaters may be for you. Tonight's the record release party for their debut album, and it's a pretty killer bill all-around, with ferocious Yvette and quirky new wavers Future Punx.

Dan Croll, Panama Wedding @ Bowery Ballroom
UK singer-songwriter Dan Croll released his debut album, Sweet Dissaray, back in March which is full of smart, catchy pop. Tonight's sold out but he'll be back in NYC for Northside Festival.

FKA twigs @ Westway
London's trip-hop-inspired FKA twigs began picking up buzz last year for her EPs that were co-produced by UNO producer and Yeezus collaborator Arca. She made her NYC debut at Glasslands last night, and tonight's her second-ever NYC show. Sold out.

Crying, Donovan Wolfington, Dowsing, Quarterbacks @ Death by Audio
Donovan Wolfington make a solid blend of punk and indie rock that's catchy, raw, and should go over well in a small, all ages venue like Death by Audio. The rest of the bill is pretty good too, including chiptune band Crying, power pop/emo band Dowsing, and lo-fi bedroom band Quarterbacks.

Jacques Greene, Samo Sound Boy, Total Fitness @ Output
Montreal producer Jacques Greene may not be from the UK but he has an excellent take on the garage beats that tend to come from there. Catch him in NYC at Output tonight.

Dawn of Humans, Contingent, Blotter, Asile, Goosebumps @ The Wick (NY's Alright)
The second annual NYC punk/hardcore festival New York's Alright kicks off tonight at new-ish Brooklyn venue The Wick. If you're into the kind of crazy shows that end up looking like this, this bill is pretty stacked.

The Wonder Years, Fireworks, Citizen, Real Friends, Modern Baseball @ Best Buy Theatre
The band we're most excited about on this bill is Philly's Modern Baseball, whose mix of indie rock, lyrical pop punk, and sad folk will make former emo kids feel pretty nostalgic, but it's got the appeal to reach beyond that scene too.

Friend Roulette, Son Step, Conveyor, Small Wonder @ Knitting Factory
A nice line-up of Brooklyn pop acts, including Small Wonder whose understated style is in line with Mutual Benefit or Kings of Convenience.

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

Turin Brakes / Vampillia
Turin Brakes
V

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Turin Brakes, Butchers Blind @ The Mercury Lounge
Long-running Britpop duo Turin Brakes have always kept things on the more low-key folky side, only indulging in sweeping anthemicism occasionally. Tickets are still available.

Geryon, Vampillia, Colin Marston, Mossenek @ Death By Audio
It's another NYC show this week for Boredoms-related Japanese band Vampillia, and like all of the shows they're doing here, they'll be joined by a great, experimental-minded lineup.

Conveyor, Cult & Leper, The Top, Harpoon Forever @ Baby's All Right
Conveyor can be a bit bipolar -- the Brooklyn-based band often keep things lovely and acoustic, but their recent GOLD 7" finds them rocking out '70s style. Stream it below. This is their first local show in a while.

Dropkick Murphys, Lucero, Skinny Lister @ Starland Ballroom
It wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day week without shows from Dropkick Murphys, and this year they've got shows in NJ tonight and Long Island tomorrow. If you're going, be sure to catch their country punk tourmates Lucero too.

Lorde, Lo-Fang @ Roseland Ballroom
The popular Lorde kicks off her sold-out three-night run at the soon-to-close Roseland Ballroom with support from the 4AD-signed Lo-Fang.

Night Train @ Littlefield
Tonight, Wyatt Cenac's weekly Night Train comedy show will be guest hosted by Jean Grae and Josh Gondelman. Guests include Emily Heller, Joe Zimmerman, Jena Friedman, Claudia Cogan, Lafayette Wright and more.

Big Daddy Kane @ Herbert Von King Park & Highline Ballroom
From the new garde to the old: BedStuy hip hop legend Big Daddy Kane headlines Herbert Von King Park tonight with mixmaster DJ Scratch as part of the 2013 SummerStage Series.

Devendra Banhart is continuing to tour in support of his new album, Mala, and comes to NYC for a show at Town Hall tonight. Rodrigo Amarante (of Little Joy) opens the show.

The Heavy @ Webster Hall

Nothing Changes w/ Lok Rahbek and Body of Light @ Home Sweet Home
Lok Rahbek of Swedish duo Lust for Youth (who recently played Chaos in Tejas) teams with Body of Light for a show at Home Sweet Home late tonight, part of the ongoing Wednesday night goth-tinged party. Look for DJ sets from Taylor Brode of Sacred Bones as well as Syb Vicious.

The Aluminum Group

Chickfactor 21 w/ Future Bible Heroes, The Aluminum Group & more @ The Bell House
Night Two of the indie zine's three-night soiree may or may not feature an appearance from Stephin Merrit who is definitely not touring with Future Bible Heroes. But as one Chickfactor's writers, they may coax him out into public. Also playing are Chicago's debonair The Aluminum Group who haven't played NYC in eons -- check out a track below. Tickets are still available.

The School @ Cake Shop
Do you like Camera Obscura? The School are kind of the Welsh version, with a whole classroom full of members to make their winsome, shy pop. They played a nice set last week at Cake Shop as part of NYC Popfest.

Radiation City @ The Mercury Lounge
This Portland, OR outfit mine a similar strain of '60s pop as The School, but with maybe a little more eye to the present, and a little more flair. Their new album, Animals in the Median, is quite alluring.

David Byrne & St. Vincent @ Wellmont Theatre
David Byrne & St. Vincent initially had two Wellmont Theatre shows scheduled, but after canceling one, the only remaining date is tonight. If you haven't yet, check out their recently released free EP. They'll be back in the NYC-area later this month for a Capitol Theatre show.

Chateau Marmont, Team Ghost DJ sets @ The DL
This event of the "France Rocks" series and features Parisians Chateau Marmont who "groove" more than they "rock," but they are from France. If your tastes lean towards yacht rock, they're worth checking out. Team Ghost, meanwhile, is the new group fronted by Nicolas Fromageau who was an original member of M83. Tonight is just DJ sets from the two bands but they'll both be playing Northside Festival.

Peace and Team Spirit @ Mercury Lounge
Round two for UK bright young things Peace and NYC locals Team Spirit who are touring together. Tickets are still available.

is playing shows this weekend with Sinkane but if you want to see her in a more gritty atmosphere to Williamsburg DIY spot where she'll be playing with Half Waif, who gives off nice Austra-y vibes on her new EP.

Big Terrific @ Cameo
Tonight, Big Terrific host Max Silvestri welcomes comedians Phoebe Robinson, Phil Hanley, Aaron Glaser and DC Benny to his weekly free laugh-a-thon.

Soundcheck @ Greene Space
Greene Space's Soundcheck series continues today, featuring a conversation with Louis CK collaborator Tig NotaroRobert Randolph, who was recently featured at Crossroads Guitar Festival and 30 Rock composer (and Tina Fey's hubby) Jeff Richmond.

Freelance Whales @ Webster Hall - 11/7/12
Freelance Whales

After Freelance Whales had to cancel their original 11/1 date at Webster Hall due to Hurricane Sandy, they postponed it to November 7, which was, of course, the day of the Nor'easter, but they managed to play the Manhattan venue this time. Support came from Conveyor and Geographer. With the announcement of the new date, they also offered an option to donate to hurricane relief with your ticket purchase.

Freelance Whales put out their most recent album, Diluvia, in October and played almost every song from that at the show, and worked in a number of tracks from Weathervanes as well. The full setlist and more pics from the show are below.

Hundred Waters at Bowery Ballroom in August (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Hundred Waters

As we mentioned before, Hundred Waters signed with Skrillex's OWSLA label, who reissued their terrific self titled debut LP (which initially came out in February via Elestial Sound) this week (9/25). That reissue comes with a bonus track, "Hydrodictyon," which they just made a music video for. You can watch that video below.

The band are on tour now, and as mentioned, they'll be in NYC for CMJ. While they're here, they'll play the previously discussed Windish showcase at Mercury Lounge on October 17 with Doldrums, Strange Talk, High Highs, and others. Tickets for that show are still available. They'll also play the Consequence of Sound showcase at Public Assembly on October 20 with So So Glos, Free Energy, Conveyor, and Delicate Steve. Advance tickets are not on sale yet for that one.

That showcase is one of a few upcoming shows for Delicate Steve, who as mentioned, play Glasslands on Saturday (9/29) with Anamanaguchi (free with RSVP), and the My Social List CMJ showcase at the Martin Room in Webster Hall on OCtober 16 (tickets).

Hundred Waters' video for "Hydrodictyon" and a list of all of their upcoming dates are below.
