I spent much of this weekend (and this morning) listening to Phosphorescent's excellent new album Pride - out now on Dead Oceans. If I had to describe it, I'd say it fits in nicely with its label-mate Dirty Projectors, but is more like (a lot like) Will Oldham (aka Bonnie Prince Billy) with a bit of Neil Young and Sufjan Stevens thrown into the mix. (read Pitchfork's review for a more thorough analysis).
Then I got excited today when I remembered that Phosphorescent has two NYC shows scheduled for this week - Silent Barn on Friday (November 9th) & Cake Shop on Saturday (the old dates had that order reversed in case you're confused like I just was). Bodies of Water also play both shows.
Bodies of Water
Bodies of Water are a quartet from LA creating 60's Pop-folk numbers, complete with four-part harmonies and buckets of choral chanting. Their new album Ears Will Pop & Eyes Will Blink was self-released through the band's own Thousand Tongues label, and has been getting good reviews all over the place. [Covert Curiosity]Then coincidentally Dead Oceans asked me if I'd like to do a giveaway for these shows today, and I said "yes, that's perfect thanks".
