Living Room's old LES spot (more by Amanda Hatfield) / new space in Williamsburg
The last we spoke about NYC venue Living Room, they had closed their Ludlow St location (next to Pianos and Cake Shop) but were promising to move to a new space. Their plan currently is to soft open during CMJ at their new Williamsburg location of 134 Metropolitan between Berry and Wythe. (Though there's no sign outside currently, or really any sign that it's about to be open.) That's not too far from Glasslands (or the soon-to-close Death by Audio) and if Max Fish had actually opened in Williamsburg (to have been at 132 Metropolitan), they would've been neighbors again.
So far, their schedule for CMJ includes shows with Mosco Rosco, Have Mercy, Fort Lean, Frances Cone and more. You can check out their full schedule as it stands at the moment, below...

Field Mouse recently announced that they signed to Topshelf for their new album, Hold Still Life, and have now revealed more details, including a stream of the song "Two Ships." Unlike their 2013 single, "Tomorrow Is Yesterday" (which does appear on the album), Field Mouse have left all traces of shoegaze behind for this new one. It's a polished pop song that sounds more like The Cardigans than My Bloody Valentine, with some of the rhythms of '80s pop and the arpeggiated guitars of Joshua Tree-era U2. You can check it out (via Noisey) below. Album artwork and tracklist below as well.
Field Mouse have also announced a record release show to happen on July 23 at Rough Trade NYC with Frances Cone, Weed Hounds and Lithuania. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/13) at noon. Exactly a month before that, they open for The Colourist at Bowery Ballroom (6/23) (tickets), and they also play Gigawatts Fest in July.
New song stream, artwork and tracklist, below...

Torres @ Glasslands - 9/25/13
Former Nashvillian Torres (the grunge folk project of Mackenzie Scott) officially made the move to Brooklyn recently, and Mackenzie and her ace band played their first show in their new hometown last month (9/25) at Glasslands. It was a headlining date in the midst of their tour with Okkervil River, and featured opening sets by Frances Cone and Wet (not Natureboy, who was initially billed). A belated set of pictures from that show is in this post.
All three artists who were on that bill are also playing CMJ this week. Torres plays Pete's Candy Store today (10/17) at 7:40 PM, and as discussed, she'll also be on our BrooklynVegan Saturday party (noon-10 PM) at Baby's All Right (146 Broadway in Williamsburg, Brooklyn). She's on at 6 PM and plays along with Ex Hex (Mary Timony's new band), Superchunk's Mac McCaughn, a special heavy guest, Hop Along, Yuck, Pity Sex, King Dude, Nothing, Courtney Barnett, and Spires. The party (like our Friday one) is totally FREE (no RSVP, no badges), and we hope to see you there!
Meanwhile, the R&B-leaning Brooklyn trio Wet, who just released a self titled EP via Neon Gold this week, have a few shows coming up. Those include FADER Fort today (10/17) and the Neon Gold showcase at Santos today (10/17). They also just announced a Mercury Lounge show to happen on November 21. Tickets for that show are on AmEx presale now and general on-sale begins Friday (10/18) at noon. Some streams from their EP are below.
Lastly, Frances Cone plays a free show at Rockwood Music Hall on Friday (10/18). She's on at 9 PM.
