Australia's indie folk band Husky were here last month and have just announced they'll be returning to this side of the planet for a fall tour. They won't be in NYC in time for their label Sub Pop's CMJ showcase but will play Mercury Lounge on November 15. Tickets to that show are currently on AmEx presale and go on regular sale Friday (9/14) at noon.
If you have yet to hear Husky's Sub Pop debut, Forever So, you can check it below along with a list of all North American tour dates.

Passion Pit were supposed to play the Apollo tonight, but were forced to cancel that show and a handful of other dates to give frontman Michael Angelakos time to improve his mental health. Read more about that in Pitchfork's excellent feature on Michael from last week.
Lower Dens, who headlined Bowery Ballroom the other night, open for Beach House at Central Park Summerstage.
Australia's Husky, who are Beach House's Sub Pop labelmate and touring soon, posted an acoustic version of "Tidal Wave" to YouTube which you can watch below...
Speaking of beaches, Nude Beach open for Milk Music at 285 Kent.
Wilco play their first of two shows in Prospect Park tonight, with their first of two Lees.

Husky from Australia / Husky from Mexico
Melbourne, Australia's indie folk quartet Husky just released their debut album, Forever So, this week on Sub Pop. (The first AU band on the label, for what it's worth.) With a love of The Hollies, CSNY and America (the band, not the country, though I'm sure they love us too) the band make delicately swooning pop that's a cut above some of the other bands working in a similar idiom. You can download two tracks from the album at the top of this post and the whole thing is streaming below via a Spotify widget, along with a video for "History's Door).
Husky are coming over for a North American tour in August with two NYC stops: a free Summerstage on 8/18 as part of Australia Day which also features Sheppard, High Highs, George Byrne, Maya Jupiter, Dj Ashley Feraude and Kid Zoom; and then a show at Joe's Pub on 8/21 to which tickets are on sale. All Husky tour dates are listed below.
Just so no one is confused (or perhaps confusing you more), there is also a Husky from Monterey, Mexico who are visting NYC as we speak and play 285 Kent on Friday (7/13) with Widowspeak, Total Slacker and Parquet Courts, and XPO 929 on Saturday (7/14) with Gradients, Island Twins and Parquet Courts again. They also play Cake Shop on July 24. While definitely on the rock side, they are also quite pop-oriented and you could probably convince yourself, if you didn't know better, that this Husky's Weekend Lovers EP (which you can stream via a Spotify widget below as well) was the same band as the one signed to Sub Pop. You can download their single "Miami" at the top of this post and watch the video below.
All tour dates for both Husky and Husky, plus streams and videos, are below.

Opening on keys, Meiburg's choice to begin with "Snow Leopard" about brought me out of my seat. As a guy who regularly pontificates, "Shearwater's Rook is in my Top 5 albums of all-time," it was a welcome initiation to a band I was long overdue to see live. Ten of the 18-song set was off Animal Joy. The highlight, for me, was the solo rendition of "Hail, Mary" which I previously thought of as a relatively easy going number, again, much to my dismay, and jubilation, featured a soul thrashing big-rock-finish that left nothing but the dissonant feedback of squawking hens and fluttering feathers. -[Ryan C Zerfas]In between dates of their tour with St. Vincent, Shearwater fit in an NYC show at Le Poisson Rouge on May 6th with Dawn Landes. Shearwater's trek with St. Vincent soldiers on, with the bands taking a night off from tour today. If you missed them, check out pictures from recent Chicago show at The Vic.
In other Dawn Landes news, she plays "Spring Forward!" at The Green Building in Brooklyn on June 6 with The Jack Grace Band and Diamond Doves. Tickets for the Gowanus Canal Conservancy benefit are on sale. Diamond Doves (aka Elvis Perkins' band minus Elvis) also open for Man Man at Brooklyn Bowl one day earlier, and play (and helped organize) the Levon Helm tribute at Brooklyn Bowl one day before that.
In other Shearwater news, the band have added some European dates, as well as a leg of shows with Husky on the West Coast. A listing of all tour dates and the rest of our LPR pictures and the setlist are below.
