How do you like your Boogie? In short blasts or do you want it to go on longer, preferably forever? If you fall in the latter camp you are probably already familiar with longrunning NYC act Endless Boogie. The band will release their new album, Long Island, next week (2/19) via No Quarter. The record was coproduced by the band's Jesper Eklow and frequent collaborator Matt Sweeney (of Chavez, Zwan, etc) who is basically a member of the band these days (when he's not playing with Bonnie "Prince" Billy). You can stream "Taking Out the Trash" below.
Endless Boogie play a NYC record release show on Friday night (2/15) at Cameo with Arbouretum and Hans Chew in tow as well. Tickets are still available.
Long Island cover art, tracklist and song stream are below.

Doug Paisley kicks off a string of East Coast dates in Toronto tonight, June 4th, making his way to Brooklyn to play the Rock Shop on June 8th with Old Calf aka Ned Oldham (also of The Anomoanon), the first of a string of shows that the pair will do together. Tickets are on sale for the Brooklyn show which will also feature Hans Chew.
Both Old Calf and Doug Paisley are touring behind new recorded efforts courtesy of No Quarter. Old Calf's Borrow A Horse was released in April and features both "Peacock" and "Bonnie Cockoo" available for download above. Doug Paisley's LP Constant Companion was released last year, and features guest appearances from the lovely Leslie Feist. Check out one Feist-blessed track "Don't Make Me Wait" above, alongside "Always Say Goodbye", and another Feist guesting track "What I Saw" streaming below. Side note: Doug has also collaborated with Ned's brother Will. Bonnie Prince has also covered Doug.

Jonny Corndawg @ Bowery Ballroom (more by Ryan Barkan)
"Expecting the usual d-bag bands who take their sweet time getting on stage, I arrived at 9:30 p.m. to find Dawes in full swing with some character on stage with them, wearing a horse cardigan, cowboy hat and Mariah Carey-fade sunglasses. What?Jonny Corndawg's previously mentioned April residency at Brooklyn Bowl kicks off at the Williamsburg bowling alley music venue tonight (4/4), and then continues each Monday this month with different openers (Michael Hurley opens the final one).
The Western-looking character, I later learned, was Jonny Corndawg who brought a Nashville twang and some knee-knocking dance moves to the stage. Post-performance, he threw out some of his ghetto airbrushed t-shirts denoting "nasty memories."" [Kelly Shea]
Tickets are on sale for all four Brooklyn dates ($5.00 in advance, $7.00-day-of), and you can definitely pick them up at the door, OR... you can enter to win one of TEN PAIRS that we're giving away for EACH show. PLUS, every winner will also get a free veggie corndog (they'll be selling varieties at the venue) (they're not vegan, but they're not meat either and they got them just for us). In other words, we're giving away FORTY PAIRS OF TICKETS (and 40 veggie corndogs). Details on how to enter, with a a pre-beard video documentary on Jonny, details on Corndawg's new album (that he needs help funding), and more tour dates, below....
