Mexico City quartet Rey Pila are gearing up to release their new album which was made here in NYC with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yuck). The first single is a catchy dollop of synth rock called "Alexander" and you can stream that -- along with the b-side, a cover of Chris DeBurgh's soft-rock mainstay "Lady in Red" -- below.

Mission of Burma at Bowery Ballroom - 1/18/13
Mission of Burma were just over in Europe for a tour and upon returning home they stopped in NYC for a show at Bowery Ballroom on Friday (1/18) before playing a hometown show in Massachusetts on Saturday. They played a bunch of material off 2012's Unsound but also reached back to their Vs./Signals, Calls, and Marches period for tracks like "Dead Pool," "Academy Fight Song," and "Nu Disco," and they worked in a cover of The Stooges' "1970" before the encore.
The show was opened by Exclamation Pony, the new-ish project of Ryan Jarman (The Cribs) and Jen Turner (Here We Go Magic). More pictures of the show and both bands' setlists are below. You can also listen to audio recordings of MOB playing "1970" and "Good, Not Great" at Bowery Ballroom below, and download the entire show at NYC Taper.
