When I caught Veronica Falls at Bowery Ballroom a few weeks ago, Juan Wauters was one of the opening acts and it was at that point that I realized I hadn't heard from his band The Beets in a while. Though it's been two years since their last album, Let the Poison Out, the band are still together and have just released a new video for "Doing As I Do" from that album. It was filmed at the far Rockaways before Hurricane Sandy took its toll on the area. The Rockaways still need your help and the band encourages you to donate to disaster relief.
You can catch The Beets tonight (4/9) at Silent Barn as part of a pretty great lineup that includes UK indiepop band Golden Grrrls (who have stuck around a little longer in NYC than originally planned), California's charming Sea Lions, local postpunks Household and Army Men (ex-German Measles). More info here.
Next week, The Beets will head out on tour that will hit both coasts and includes anther NYC show at Death by Audio on May 4 with Bass Drum of Death. All Beets tour dates are listed below.
Bass Drum of Death
Speaking of, Bass Drum of Death will be in town because that same night they're opening for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at Terminal 5 (tickets). They're opening the whole tour and their dates are listed below. BDoD have singed with Innovative Leisure (Nick Waterhouse, Allah-Las) who will release their new album this summer. You can stream "Shattered Me" from it below.

When last we wrote about shambolic UK janglepoppers Golden Grrrls, we knew there was going to be a NYC show on April 3 but we didn't know where or with whom. Now we do. The show happens at Glasslands and their Slumberland labelmates Sea Lions are also on the bill. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Golden Grrrls' self-titled debut is out February 26 and you can stream a few tracks from it below.
Somewhat confusingly, for those who don't follow this sort of stuff closely, on the same day Slumberland is also releasing The New Life, which is the new album from Irish band Girls Names. Sonically, the two bands don't have much in common, with Girls Names playing a much gothier strain of indie that has more than a little in common with Crystal Stilts. You can stream a track from that album below.
And while I'm using terms like "shambolic" and "indie" I would be remiss to not mention that the elder statesmen of shambolic Scottish indie, The Pastels, will release Slow Summits at some point this year via Domino Records. Not counting the collaborative album they made with Tenniscoats in 2009, this will be The Pastels' first album in 16 years. You can watch a trailer for Slow Summits below.

As mentioned before, UK group Golden Grrrls have their new album coming out February 26 and they've just released a new track from the album to whet your whistle. Check out "Past Tense" below. Golden Grrrls are not shy about their love of '80s Flying Nun bands like The Clean and Verlaines and that influence is evident here.
After a West Coast tour with Veronica Falls in March, Golden Grrrls will be heading East for a few shows, including one in NYC on April 3 at a venue still to be determined. All Golden Grrls tour dates are listed below, along with the song stream.

Glasgow/London trio Golden Grrrls have been around for a couple years, having released a few singles and a cassette via UK label Nightschool. With boy/girl vocals and shambolic sound, the band are direct sonic descendants of The Pastels' school of indiepop. The band have signed with Slumberland in the U.S. who will release their self-titled debut album on February 26. You can stream the album's closing track, "We've Got...," below.
The band will head to North America in the new year for a few West Coast dates with their Slumberland labelmates Veronica Falls. No East Coast dates as of yet, but homefully they'll stop in NYC on their way to or from those shows. All upcoming dates are below, along with the new track stream, album art and track list, plus streams of a couple previous Golden Grrrls releases.
