Leverage Models (aka Shannon from Stars Like Fleas and friends) are set to release their debut on October 1 via Hometapes. You may have already heard their track, "Cooperative Extensions" (which will be on the album), but the band have now made a video for it and we've got its premiere in this post.

Leverage Models have a couple upcoming NYC shows. The play open the previously discussed Indians show on Sunday (7/21) at Knitting Factory with Brazos. Tickets to that show are still available. They'll also open the previously discussed Medicine show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 16, a show that Weekend is also playing. Tickets for that show are also still available.

Along with the new video, you can also stream Leverage Models' recent cover of The Associates' mid-'80s avant-pop hit "Party Fears Two," below...

Indians at BV-SXSW 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
Indians

Copenhagen's Indians released his solid debut album, Somewhere Else, earlier this year and has been doing a good deal of touring in support of it. He's doing some US dates later this month, and he's just announced that after returning home for some summer shows, he'll be back on our shores for a string of Northeast dates in July. Those dates include a NYC show happening on July 21 at Knitting Factory. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/10) at 10 AM.

All dates are listed, along with the video for "I Am Haunted" from his LP, below...

Delorean / Savages
Delorean
Savages

We kicked off our free BrooklynVegan SXSW day parties yesterday (3/13) in Austin at the Main & The Jr (aka the old Emo's location, aka 603 Red River St) with sets from Delorean, Robyn Hitchock, Savages, Camper Van Beethoven, Caveman, Braids, Maserati, Caitlin Rose, Anamanaguchi, Indians, Marnie Stern, Team Spirit, Torres, and Deep Sea Diver. Pictures from the party are in this post, and more are on the way soon.

The biggest surprise for me personally was Torres (aka Mackenzie Scott), whose self titled debut is great, but she really takes it to another level live. Her band is super tight, loud, and confident (her guitarist has some rock star moves) and Mackenzie has some serious pipes that she doesn't even fully reveal on the album. It was a much heavier show than I expected, and if you can catch her at one of her other upcoming SXSW shows, highly recommended.

Torres was followed by other great sets on the outdoor stage (Glasslands Stage), like the noisy math rock of Marnie Stern (who played a lot of her great new album), the danceable video game punk of Anamanaguchi, and a set from post-rockers Maserati, who along with Caveman, cooled things down for a bit. But that cooling down didn't last long, because once Savages took the stage, they were possibly even more intense than CMJ. They played some new stuff that they didn't have back then, and once that album finally drops, I've got pretty high hopes for it. Finally, Delorean wrapped up the outdoor stage with a dancey set. It was nice to end the day with some familiar tunes like "Real Love." Then Maserati came out and joined Delorean for a cover over Gary Numan's "Cars." Not really.

Meanwhile, indoors Deep Sea Diver kicked things off around the same time as Torres outside and they were followed by the fun-rock of Team Spirit, Copenhagen's Indians (who were a 3-piece and were better that way than when I saw him solo), a rousing country set from Caitlin Rose, the new electronic sound of Braids (which we also heard at CMJ), and the show ended with sets from two musical veterans: Camper Van Beethoven and Robyn Hitchcock. Robyn was great and he is especially funny on stage with his in-between song banter. He referred to the overheard sounds of Delorean from the other room as the sounds of devils, and "if they had been heard 200 years earlier, marches of men would have been sent to destroy these fiends," (or something like that).

In addition to the music, Onkyo was there, sampling their new headphones which hit stores next month. mophie, maker of invaluable iPhone chargers, were giving away discount cards good at their pop-up shop which was set up right across the street on Red River. We were also serving complimentary Jameson, and Zico coconut water, and free vegan queso and chips from Food For Lovers. We also had BrooklynVegan t-shirts for the first 50 people in the door, thanks to American Apparel. Also thanks to our other sponsors, Korg, Vox, Blackstar, Creative Recreation, Signazon, WILLCALL, Mirrored Media, and Redigi.

Our day parties continue today (3/14) with sets from Cloud Nothings, Parenthetical Girls, Death, METZ, Milk Music, Beach Fossils, Widowspeak, and more.

Indians at MHOW - 11/29/12
Indians

Copenhagen's Indians (aka Soren Juul) stopped by NYC last week on his ongoing tour with Other Lives (which hits Pittsburgh tonight) for shows at Bowery Ballroom (11/28) and Music Hall of Williamsburg (11/29). Pictures from the Bowery Ballroom show are HERE and pictures from the MHOW show are in this post.

Indians will return to North America on his own tour in 2013, which will be in support of his upcoming debut album, Somewhere Else, which is due out January 29 via 4AD. That tour hits NYC on March 7 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/7) at noon with an AmEx presale starting (12/5) at noon. He'll be touring with Dead Oceans signees Night Beds, who play NYC this month, but no opener has been announced for the Mercury Lounge show yet.

All tour dates are listed below, along with more pics from the MHOW show with Other Lives.

Other Lives @ Bowery Ballroom, 11/29/2012
Other Lives

Call Other Lives folkestral. The band takes cues from expansive acts with sprawling live arrangements and Americana heartbeats, copping feels from everyone from Bon Iver to Sigur Rós in the process. It must be a labor of love to drag that symphony across the country. Contrast that to the spare opener Indians, which created vibrant atmospheres by burrowing into its harmonies and reverbs. The Copenhagen-based project is also sorta-folk, but expresses that aesthetic through waves of keyboards and quiet charm. Indians' melodic, hazy obliques achieved a scaled emotionalism that didn't aim for melodrama or total control, and primed the audience to get swept in by Other Lives' technicolor rumble. - [CMJ]
Oklahoma's Other Lives brought their tour to NYC this week playing two shows, the first of which was last night (11/28) at Bowery Ballroom with Danish act Indians opening. Both play again tonight (11/29), this time at Music Hall of Williamsburg which is not sold out.

More pictures from last night's Bowery Ballroom performance are below.

Indians

Cophenhagen's Indians (the project of Soren Lokke Juul), who made a great impression during CMJ, is back in NYC this week on his tour with Other Lives which hits Bowery Ballroom TONIGHT (11/28) and Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday (11/29). Tickets for both shows are still available.

Like we did with Craig Finn, and JEFF the Brotherhood, we asked Indians for a Top 10 Albums of 2012. His list, which is actually of albums he's listening to in 2012 (instead of what came out in 2012), can be viewed below.

He'll will release his debut album, Somewhere Else, on January 29 via 4AD. He recently recorded a Wild Honey Pie Buzzessions for two tracks off that album, "I Am Haunted" and "Cakelakers." You can check out the videos of those sessions, his top 10 list, and a list of updated dates, below.

Death Grips @ LPR, 10/17/2012 (via @brooklynvegan)
Death Grips

On Wednesday (10/17), CMJ was well under way and day parties were widespread across the Lower East Side yesterday (and to a lesser extent, Williamsburg). Andrew was out and about, like at the Terrorbird party at Cake Shop:

Prince Rama (via @brooklynvegan Instagram)
prince rama

Says Andrew: "It was pretty easy to go in and out so it probably never hit capacity, but Cake Shop was still packed all afternoon for the Terrorbird party. I got there around 4 and caught great sets by Pictureplane, Prince Rama, Mykki Blanco, and Jerome LOL. How were the earlier ones that I missed?"

Meanwhile, BV photographer Amanda Hatfield roamed around the city, hitting the KEXP day show at Union Square Ballroom where she saw Daughter, High Highs, Cody ChesnuTT and Interpol frontman Paul Banks who was sharp-dressed as usual:

paul banks

Stay tuned for better pictures from that. She later crossed paths with Andrew at Cake Shop, but also spent time at the Tell All Your Friends Party at Pianos where she caught Braids, and then they both headed over to Le Poisson Rouge for Ali Shaheed, Buke & Gase, Death Grips, and Flying Lotus which was by all accounts a bananas show.

Indians at Brooklyn Bowl, 10/17/2012 (via @brooklynvegan)
paul banks

My CMJ Wednesday started a little later than planned a quick plop-down in the couch turned into an hour disconap, but I made it down to Brooklyn Bowl for Hype Machine's party to see Danish artist Indians. Andrew wrote a nice little recap of his Tuesday set at Living Room which I agree with but will say a bowling alley is maybe not the right place to see a one-man electronic act that is mostly downtemo, somber music. That said, he's got a great voice and would love to see him again not in a 7-10 split situation.

The big news from his set was that Indians pressed 500 copies of his 4AD debut on vinyl in plain brown sleeves to sell just at CMJ. The album won't actually be out till January, so this is a real treat. I wanted one, but wasn't going home anytime soon, so maybe I'll pick one up at one of his other shows this week.

I left the Hype Machine party before The Neighborhood went on, but the band did give me a glow-in-the-dark sticker while I was looking at the Indians vinyl at the merch table. Thanks, guys! I hoofed it up Wythe to South 2nd and poked my head in to Death by Audio to see what time METZ were going on (late) and then rounded the corner onto Kent to hit Glasslands for the Stereogum party where the line stretched long outside. I was lucky I managed to get in, but others weren't. The NY Times was there in the weeds, talking to folk in line, "many of them in fashionable clothes and carrying iPods."

When I got inside, I found things running late and heard the "Thank you, goodnight!" from Io Echo (who play our day party on Friday [10/17). Port St. Willow, who also played the NYC Taper show at Cake Shop today, were up next and sounded nice, but were maybe a little to mellow to follow a dance-y act.

Savages @ Glasslands 10/17/2012 (via @soundbitesnyc)
Savages

After their set I worked my way up front to catch Savages, the real reason I was there. As I wrote earlier, they kinda knocked me out. (Their rhythm section is insane.) Mind you, I am a sucker for this kind of sound (gothy post punk a la 1981) but Savages are the real deal. They play our day party Friday (10/19, 2:30) which you should totally try to make. Skip class, call in sick...whatever you have to do. It's a great line-up (The Intelligence! METZ!) and totally free.

Pitchfork loved Savages too.

Guards at Glasslands 10/17/2012 (via @brooklynvegan)
Guards

Guards (ex-Cults member Richie Follin's band) we up next and played a fine set of rousing, sing-a-long rock. Follin remarked it was nice to be back at Glasslands where they played their first-ever show.

Dum Dum Girls @ Glasslands, 10/17/2012 (via @soundbitesnyc)
DDG

Dum Dum Girls took the stage about 12:30 and seemed in good spirits, delivering the kind of all-killer-no-filler showcase set that makes festival attendance a plus sometimes. They even did their cover of Pale Saints "Sight of You" again (just like at Europa). New bassist (and talented photographer/filmmaker) Malia James is a great addition to the band, adding a little sass to DDG's otherwise cool demeanor. (She also looks more than a little like Jessica Paré [aka Megan Draper].)

And that was it for me for that night, but BBG was just getting started with a late night WIERD show at Home Sweet Home that featured Cult of Youth and Slug Guts. But elsewhere in the world...

---

Hundred Waters, who you can see tonight at Brooklyn Bowl with Lee 'Scratch' Perry, and who play the free BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly Saturday, started their CMJ run at Mercury Lounge last night with Pitchfork on hand.

Pitchfork also stayed for Doldrums who you'll find at our Friday day party at Public Assembly.

We also got a peak at the renovated Slipper Room last night. BV's Dominick Mastrangelo stopped by for the Glassnote showcase set by Daughter (who open for the Walkmen and Dum Dum Girls at Terminal 5 tonight). "Very cool space. Look forward to catching more shows here", he tweeted. Stay tuned for more on that.

Local Natives headlined a one-off show at Bowery Ballroom.

The few who stuck it out till the end at the 285 Kent hip hop show last night are probably tired, as we know Sasha Go Hard went on some time after 3am... she came straight from the airport too, and then went right back to the airport and back to Chicago right after the show!

Hopefully by now you're up at Rebel checking out a full lineup of Texas bands tonight, or maybe doing something else, and we hope to see you at our first day party Friday at Public Assembly!

Speaking of our day party Friday, you can see Sky Ferreira there. Last night she played Union Hall., Check out a video below...

Oh hey, it's CMJ time again (Wednesday to be exact). Here's a little recap of what BrooklynVegan did on Tuesday (10/17) night with some you-are-there type Instagrams. (Follow along in real time with @Brooklynvegan on Instagram or @BVpics and @bvCMJ on Twitter.) Here we go...

Ghost Wave @ Le Poisson Rouge
Ghost Wave

I was a little thrown off Tuesday as my original plan revolved around seeing French acts Bertrand Burgalat and Juveniles at the Union Square Ballroom. When both canceled last-minute, I had zero plan. After picking up my badge (a breeze) at Judson Memorial Church, I headed over to Le Poisson Rouge for some of the New Zealand showcase that's become an annual CMJ kickoff event at the Village venue. I caught the latter half of Ghost Wave (horrible name, but pretty good classic Flying Nun-style indie) and stuck around for about half of Die! Die! Die! whose blitzkrieg punk was certainly fun to watch.

I then hoofed it over to the L.E.S. where fellow BV writer Andrew Sacher already was... (-Bill)

Indians @ The Living Room (via @llllbfgllll)
Ghost Wave

The ease of making a record by yourself in your bedroom has inspired countless artists to do so, resulting in a ton of filler, but every now and then some real gems pop up. If you're looking to find a new one of those gems at this year's CMJ, Copenhagen's Indians (aka Soren Lokke Juul) is a good place to start. He played his first CMJ show at Living Room last night (10/16) for a WFUV showcase, and though he didn't have the highest attendance (early Tuesday is tough), those who were there were attentive the whole show. Rather than hiding his voice behind reverb or distortion like many of his peers, Soren's voice is his strong point. He belted out every song while providing piano, acoustic guitar, drum loops, and ambient backing tracks. Even on his own everything was well put together, so when Soren begins playing with a full band (like the one in his 4AD Session video), it feels pretty safe to say it's gonna be great. You can catch Indians again tonight (10/17) at the Hype Machine party at Brooklyn Bowl and Thursday at Fader Fort.

Quilt @ Arlene's Grocery (via @brooklynvegan Instagram)
Quilt

Boston's Quilt made their way over to NYC last night for their only CMJ show this year, the Easy Apple/Vinyl District/Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records showcase at Arlene's Grocery. The band have been in NYC a bunch of times (they called it their home away from last night) but I've somehow managed to miss them every time until last night, and glad I finally caught them. They filled the venue with trippy Haight-Ashbury vibes, and still managed to sound fresh despite their obvious lineage to an era which is almost half a century old. I guess I had assumed they'd be playing acoustic guitars, but they went strictly electric and still captured the delicate folkiness of the record -- plus it allowed them to throw in some noise freakouts. The band were charming on stage too, cracking tongue-in-cheek jokes about how Flea is no longer in their band, and they gave a shoutout to Bob Weir, who turned 65 yesterday and said he was on stage with them on spirit (which also came off as a joke, but to some extent, they weren't wrong).

If you haven't heard Quilt's self titled LP which came out in 2011 on Mexican Summer, you can stream it at bandcamp. They'll be back in NYC to open for The Fresh & Onlys on November 8 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show are still available.  (-Andrew)

Back to Bill...

Foxygen @ Mercury Lounge (via @brooklynvegan Instagram)
Foxygen

After seeing Quilt at Arlene's Grocery with Andrew, I walked over to Mercury Lounge (a trip Michael Cera needed a car for in Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist) for the showcase put on by our West Coast blog friends Aquarium Drunkard. Waiting in line to get in I met, Foxygen singer Sam France's two aunts and grandmother who were very, very proud of him. Not sure if they had an influence on me, but I thought Foxygen was the best thing I saw last night, a confident melange of late '60s / early '70s psych pop and glam that was exemplified by the closing number that seemed to merge "Under My Thumb" and "Suspicious Minds" into a new baby. France was a funny frontman too who seems to really enjoy the frontman role. Catch them at our day party on Friday.

Tashaki Miyaki @ Mercury Lounge (via @brooklynvegan Instagram)
Tashaki Miyaki

Los Angeles trio Tashaki Miyaki were up next. I enjoy their hazy sound (Mazzy Star-esque as noted before) but they were not completely on their game last night, though their laconic vibe is a tough follow to Foxygen's showmanship. I spent much of their set trying to figure out how leftie guitarist played his righthanded instrument upside down. (Some brains just work that way.) Still, current single "Best Friend" sounded pretty sweet, and they should be a nice soundtrack to the early afternoon of our Saturday day party at Public Assembly (where you can catch them again while getting a free tattoo).

BV photographer Amanda Hatfield (her cat Rufus is at the top of this post), who had been at Ben Gibbard's intimate HiFi show earlier in the evening, tried to get in to Mercury Lounge but found it sold out, or badged-out or both. Some venues adopt a one-in-one out policy during CMJ, others give you a stamp that allows you to get back in anytime and others have the old "no reentry" policy, though you don't see that so much in the 10 years since the smoking band came into effect. Whatever way, it pays to show up early to something you really want to see.

Orwells at Mercury Lounge (via @brooklynvegan Instagram)
Orwells

At midnight it was the NYC debut of Chicago's The Orwells whose album is out on Autumn Tone records (which is run by Justin of Aquarium Drunkard). All still in High School (or should be) and looked it too, they cranked out a hyper set of angst-fueled garage pop driven by wild-eyed frontman Mario Cuomo (not that one) who stalked the stage and generally went apeshit. In a well-worn Batman tee, he definitely brings the danger to The Orwells that otherwise look like someone's nice younger brothers. They were all clearly stoked to be playing New York City. They're playing many times this week, including an opening slot on our Saturday day party at Public Assembly.

Then I went to bed. It was only Tuesday, plenty of late nights to come. (-BIll)

What are you seeing tonight?

Savoir Adore played two CMJ shows last night, and one as part of the pre-CMJ Conflict of Interest party on Monday night at Rebel NYC. We missed all three, but check out a video from the Monday one, and a video of Spacehog playing "In the Meantime" at Rockwood Music Hall (true story), below...

Indians

Copenhagen 4AD signees Indians (the project of Søren Løkke Juul ) already released some great singles this year and he's now announced that he'll release his debut album, Somewhere Else, on January 29 via the label. The album will include his new single, "Cakelakers," which you can stream/download via a widget below. If you enjoyed his other singles, this one's further proof that his album is something to look forward to.

Indians will be in NYC this week for CMJ, where he'll play the WFUV showcase at Living Room TONIGHT (10/16) at 7 PM with Savoir Adore (7:40), Wax Poetic (8:20), and Little Green Cars (9:00); the Hype Machine "Handpicked" show at Brooklyn Bowl on Wednesday (10/17) with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Virgins, The Neighbourhood, Sua, Jjamz, and DJ Goldroom (free with RSVP); and the Fader Fort at Converse Rubber Tracks on October 18.

As mentioned, Indians will also return to NYC on his tour with Other Lives, which hits Bowery Ballroom on 11/28 and MHOW on 11/29. Tickets for both of those shows are still available.

Speaking of Little Green Cars, who also play the WFUV showcase at Living Room today, the Glassnote-signed Dubliners are also playing a KEXP show at CMJ Union (10/18) and the Bowery Presents day party at Pianos (10/20).

A list of all Indians dates and the MP3 widget are below.

UMO at Glasslands in 2011 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
UMO

New Zealand psych pop project Unknown Mortal Orchestra, who were recently in NYC opening for Grizzly Bear, have announced the follow-up to their 2011 self titled debut. It's called II and it's due out on February 5 via Jagjaguwar, unlike their debut which came out on Fat Possum/True Panther. You can stream the album's single, "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)," at the bottom of this post, where you'll also find the album's kind-of-NSFW cover art and tracklist.

The band have a few upcoming dates scheduled including the Hype Machine CMJ Party at Brooklyn Bowl on October 17 with The Virgins, The Neighbourhood, Indians, Sua, Jjamz, and DJ Goldroom. That party is free but RSVP is required.

In related news, UMO frontman Ruban Nielson's brother Kody (aka Opossom) and a number of other New Zealand bands will be here for CMJ too.

A list of all UMO dates, song stream, cover art, and tracklist are below.

DIIV at Terminal 5 in July (more by Chris La Putt)
DIIV

As mentioned, Japandroids will kick off the North American portion of their tour in November, which hits NYC on December 4 and 5 at Webster Hall. We already knew that Bleached will be supporting on the first leg, and Swearin' on the second, and it's now been revealed that the third portion, which includes both NYC shows, will be supported by DIIV. Tickets for both Webster Hall shows are still available. An updated list of dates is below.

You won't have to wait that long to catch DIIV in their hometown of NYC though (you never really have to wait very long to do that anyway), because as mentioned, they'll headline the Captured Tracks CMJ showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 18 with Mac DeMarco, Thieves Like Us, and Dignan Porch. Tickets for that show are still available.

Mac DeMarco has other CMJ shows scheduled too, including the Panache showcase at Public Assembly (10/19), the My Social List showcase at the Martin Room in Webster Hall (10/16), the post-CMJ show at Bowery Ballroom (10/21) with Wild Nothing and Merchandise, and the just announced free Hype Machine party at Brooklyn Bowl on October 18 with Hundred Waters (who also play these shows). That bill also includes a secret headliner, Hooray For Earth, Bloksberg, and DJ sets by Jensen Sportag and YVYNL. Hype Machine is also doing a party at the same venue one day earlier (10/17) with The Virgins, The Neighbourhood, Indians, a secret artist and DJ Goldroom. Both parties are free but RSVP is required.

The flier for the Hype Machine shows, a video, and a list of all dates are below.

Indians

Indians, the moniker of Copenhagen's Søren Løkke Juul, has dropped a few impressive singles this year, including "Magic Kids," "New," and "I Am Haunted", and has visited our shores a few times as well. Now he's announced that he's signed to 4AD, making him labelmates with Deerhunter, St. Vincent, Grimes, and many others.

In honor of the signing, Indians recorded a 4AD sessions video, where Søren can be seen on a beach with two bandmates performing those three tunes mentioned above. You can watch that video below. If you've yet to check out Indians, it's rooted in bedroom dream pop, but seeing him perform in the wide open setting of a beach quickly proves that he won't be satisfied staying confined to small spaces.

As mentioned, Indians will be back in North America for a tour with Other Lives, which brings the two bands to NYC on November 28 at Bowery Ballroom and November 29 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for both of those shows are still available.

A list of all dates and the 4AD sessions video are below.

As mentioned, Copenhagen's Indians are returning to North America for a few shows, including a NYC show on Thursday (7/26) at Glasslands with Milagres and Zulu Pearls. But you can catch Indians in NYC even sooner than that and for free TODAY (7/25) at Ace Hotel for a Bowery Presents and Martin Guitar presented 'Five at Five' show, where an artist plays five songs at 5 PM (as in, the show is in 3 hours from the time of this post). That's the flier for the show above. Zulu Pearls also play a Cantora Records showcase at Bowery Electric tonight.
