Now that their recent tour with Title Fight has drawn to a close (they played Bowery Ballroom in November), Canada's Single Mothers are scheduling dates in the new year as part of a campaign toward SXSW. So far dates are spotty, but look for the band to hit in NYC on March 2 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets go on sale Saturday (12/15) at 9AM.
Another date of note in that recently announced set is part of Fucked Up's Long Winter series, monthly shows in Toronto that last until February. The band will join Fucked Up (who also play Warsaw next week) as well as Absolutely Free, The Highest Order, Dusted, Marine Dreams vs The Weather Station, Laura Barrett and Kristian Pedersen at The Great Hall on 12/14. This all-ages event will feature "immersive and interactive music, installations, visual art, readings, food and dance" and is "pay what you can."
Single Mothers released their self-titled EP late last year which you can stream below.
In related news, Fucked Up have a new video for "Inside a Frame" which you can watch below alongside the Single Mothers stream and a list of all dates.

Perfume Genius @ LPR,10/9/12
Perfume Genius and Holy Fuck side project Dusted brought their tour to NYC for two shows this week: Music Hall of Williamsburg on Monday (10/8) and Le Poisson Rouge last night (10/9). Pictures from the LPR show are in this post.
Mike Hadreas, the primary member of Perfume Genius, has become more and more of a confident performer over time, probably partly thanks to the increased attention he's been getting for his excellent Put Your Back N 2 It album which came out earlier this year, following the also excellent but often overlooked Learning. He performed material off both of those albums at the show last night, and like he's done in the past, covered the Neil Young-penned "Helpless" from CSNY's Deja Vu, and Madonna's "Oh Father" from Like a Prayer. And though he most often delivers his damaged tales from behind the comfort of his keyboard, at this show he opted to grab the mic and perform standing for a portion of the set.

Great Lake Swimmers at SXSW 2011 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Toronto indie folk band Great Lake Swimmers are set to tour Europe with Holy Fuck side project Dusted but before that they'll play a few East Coast US dates with indie pop duo Snowblink, who just joined their Arts & Crafts labelmate Feist during her performance at the Polaris Prize Gala. (Great Lake Swimmers were nominated for the Polaris Long List but didn't make it to the Short List.) Those dates include a NYC show which happens on October 4 at The Bell House. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All Great Lake Swimmers dates are listed below.
Snowblink released their new album, Inner Classics, earlier this month (9/11) via Arts & Crafts. You can download album's single, "Black & White Mountains," above and watch its video below.
Speaking of Dusted, they'll be in NYC when their tour with Perfume Genius hits Music Hall of Williamsburg (10/8) (tickets) and Le Poisson Rouge (10/9) (tickets). They're also set to come to NYC for CMJ, though no specific shows have been announced yet.
All lists of dates and that Snowblink video are below...

Dusted (the new project led by Holy Fuck's Brian Borcherdt) released their debut LP, Total Dust, this week (7/10) via Polyvinyl. You've already heard the single, "(Into The) Atmosphere," and if you liked that song, you'll enjoy the whole record, which pretty much follows suit. It's mainly a collection of sweet-voiced indie pop with bright clean tones and a backgrounded drum machine. But it's not just a pop record -- some of the songs (especially the album's opening track "All Comes Down") drift towards haunting slowcore, and Brian often coats his voice in a light distortion and can give his guitar an even thicker one. You can stream the entire album below.
As mentioned, Dusted will be in NYC for a show at Glasslands on Sunday (7/15) (tickets), but since we last spoke, Dusted announced a NYC show which happens even sooner than that. They'll play Cake Shop on Thursday (7/12) with Happy New Year and one more TBA.
A list of updated dates and the album stream are below...

Dusted, a duo consisting of Brian Borcherdt (Holy Fuck) and Leon Taheny (Final Fantasy, Rituals, Bruce Peninsula), are set to release their debut LP, Total Dust, on July 10 via Polyvinyl in the US and worldwide and on Hand Drawn Dracula in their home country of Canada. The first track revealed from that album, "(Into The) Atmosphere" is far different than the work Brian did in Holy Fuck and sounds more like a mid-2000s Arts & Crafts band and also a bit like Arm's Way-era Islands. It's a catchy tune, falling just below the 3 minute mark, and you can check it out below, along with a teaser video for the album.
Dusted are currently on tour with A Place To Bury Strangers. They won't be at APTBS' NYC show (7/27 at MHOW) but they just announced their own NYC show, which goes down on July 15 at Glasslands. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
All dates are listed below, along with the song stream and album trailer...

DOWNLOAD: A Place to Bury Strangers - You Are the One (MP3)
A Place to Bury Strangers have been on a prolific streak, having released the Onwards to the Wall EP back in February and will have a new album, Worship, out on June 26 via Dead Oceans. You can download the slowly building "You Are the One" at the top of this post and stream the pounding "And I'm Up" below. The whole record is really good; Oliver Ackermann and crew keep finding new ways to manipulate noise within the APTBS wheelhouse that remains exciting. The songs keep getting better too. There are a few different album bundles for fans, including a deluxe package that includes a 7" single, "blue death" vinyl and a chance to win one of Death by Audio's famed "Fuzz War" guitar pedals.
With new album comes a tour and APTBS hit the road yesterday for a run of North American dates. West Coast shows are with This Will Destroy You and Dusted, and Midwest/East Coast dates are with Hunters, including a July 27 show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. No on-sale date for the MHIW date yet.
Speaking of Hunters, you can catch them in NYC even sooner when they play shows later this month with Heavy Cream.
All tour dates and that song stream are below...
