Jenny Hval @ Glasslands - 10/2/13
Jenny Hval

Norway's Jenny Hval makes a kind of forward-thinking art pop equally indebted to Laurie Anderson as it is to PJ Harvey, which needless to say, is quite an interesting mix. She just brought these sounds over to North America for a full tour, including stops at NYC's Mercury Lounge on Tuesday (10/1) and Glasslands last night (10/2). We caught the Glasslands show where the crowd paid close attention, which is exactly what this kind of thing calls for. Unfortunately, there was a bit of bleeding through the walls from the much louder Radical Dads show at 285 Kent next door, which Jenny commented on during her, but took it in stride. Opening the show was Tica Douglas and Ludwig Persik, and pictures of all three artists are in this post.

Cascading Slopes at Cameo, 1/31/2013 (via @FreshBread)
Warm Soda

Cascading Slopes is a new project from Jacob Graham of The Drums. Unlike his other band, this is 100% synthesiser-based music. His debut album, Towards a Quaker View of Synthesizers, is out soon and "took two years to complete from its inception and was made using strictly voltage-controlled instruments." Jacob has been keeping a synth blog, Mild Slopes, for some time now. While no tracks from the album have been released yet, you can stream a portion of non-LP track, "Other Worlds," below.

The band made their live debut last week (1/31) at Cameo with Leverage Models. If you missed it, New York has a few chances to see them as the'll start a February residency at Pianos on 2/13 that will continue for the two following wednesdays (2/20, 2/27). All three nights also feature Ludwig Persick, and the 2/13 show also has TV Baby and Club Girls. Then the 2/20 show also has The Drowners and King Holiday, and then the final night of the residency has El Sportivo & the Blooz, Rumors and Twin Wave. Advance tickets for all three nights are on sale now.

A flyer for the Pianos residency and a video trailer are below.

Twin Sister at Bowery Ballroom in 2011 (more by Jessica Amaya)
Twin Sister

There have been countless Hurricane Sandy relief benefits in NYC in the over-a-month since the storm hit and, fortunately as they're needed, there's no sign that they'll be stopping any time soon. There's one going down at Glasslands on December 17 with Chairlift, Twin Sister, Empress Of, Slowdance, Jason McMahon, and a DJ set from Ice Choir (aka Kurt Feldman of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart). Tickets for that show are on sale now. It's the only announced date for Chairlift at the moment, and also the only one for Twin Sister except for a Philly show with Ava Luna in January.

You can also catch a member of Chairlift at Glasslands tonight (12/6). Patrick Wimberly will be DJing at Fort Lean's release party for their Change Your Name EP with Ludwig Persik and Cruiser. Tickets for that show are available.

A couple videos are below.
