Peach Kelli Pop (aka White Wires drummer Allie Hanlon's other band) just released a new single via Porchcore Records, her first new record since 2013's Peach Kelli Pop II. Like most of her stuff, these two tracks are sugary bubblegum garage confections and you can stream them below.

Have just spent last week in Austin for SXSW, Peach Kelli Pop is now hitting the East Coast and elsewhere for a few shows including two in NYC: March 26 at Death by Audio with The Foxx, Fostercare, and Mannequin Pussy
; and March 27 at Don Pedros with Mystery Lights, and Skully.

DOWNLOAD: Mannequin Pussy - "Clue Juice" (MP3)

Mannequin Pussy

NYC punks Mannequin Pussy have been regulars on the local scene for a while now, and it's just been announced that they've signed to Tiny Engines, making them labelmates with Cayetana, Little Big League, and The Hotelier. The new label will be giving Mannequin Pussy's debut, Gypsy Pervert, a vinyl release this summer.

The album's first single, "Clue Juice," is a whiplash of punchy power chords and distorted shouts that clock in just over a minute. Its video splices clips from the band's live shows, so if you've never seen them in person, you can get an idea of how rowdy they can get by checking it out below. You can also download the song above.

The band have two upcoming hometown shows scheduled at the moment, including EMET on March 21 with Gymshorts, Vulture Shit and Big Neck Police; and Death by Audio on March 26 with Peach Kelli Pop, Foster Care and The Foxx. There's a Philly show too, and all of their dates are listed, with that video, below...

Speedy Ortiz

Exploding In Sound Records celebrated the new year in NYC with a huge show at Baby's All Right on 12/30 that included Big Ups, Porches, Roomrunner, Grass Is Green, Two Inch Astronaut, Ovlov, Krill, Dead Wives, Baked, Bad History Month, Woozy, Gnarwhal, Pile (acoustic), and special guests billed as "Average Cock," who you may have guessed was actually Speedy Ortiz. That's Speedy pictured above, and there's a high quality video of Big Ups from the show below. EIS celebrated NYE proper with a smaller show in Boston.

As discussed, Grass Is Green and Speedy Ortiz are touring together, and though that tour doesn't hit NYC, Speedy will open for Los Campesinos! at Irving Plaza on 1/22 (tickets), and since we last spoke, Grass Is Green added a NYC show happening on January 31 at Silent Barn for the 10th annual Berfest with Baked, Radical Dads, Frankie Cosmos and Poverty Hollow. They also posted another track from their upcoming Vacation Vinny LP not along ago, "Sammy So-Sick." You can stream that, along with the updated list of their tour dates, below.

Big Ups also have another show happening on February 1 at Death by Audio with Eula, Kal Marks and Malatese.

UPDATE: Big Ups also play a release party for their upcoming Eighteen Hours of Static LP at Shea Stadium on January 9 with Flagland, Mannequin Pussy and Washer; and the NYC Arts Collective Late Bloomers Kick Off Multi-Media Series at Baby's All Right on January 25 with Beach Party, Tei Shi, Charlie Wavers Quartet and DJ sets by Au Revoir Simone, Lee Bannon and The Range. Tickets for the Baby's show are on sale now and proceeds benefit the Ali Forney Center.

Porches next play Silent Barn on January 10 with My Dad, Gunk and Flagland.

And the next day at Silent Barn (1/11), the venue hosts the Gravesend Recordings Compilation Vol. 1 release party which features Krill, Palehound, Bueno, Jazz Massagers and Hannah Ch'oe, plus "possible special guests."

In more related news, Palehound and Frankie Cosmos team up again for a Brooklyn show at Trash Bar on January 17 with Eskimeaux and Florist.

Lastly, Ovlov's next NYC gig is opening for Self Defense Family and Pity Sex at Santos on 1/19 with Heroes of Modern Earth and Deep Pockets. Tickets for that show are still available. They also play Silent Barn on 2/6.

All lists of dates, along with that Grass Is Green song and Big Ups video, below...

Vader, Leia and Yoda @ Thompkins Sq. Park Halloween Pet Parade (via)
Halloween
Peelander-Z at Brain Cave Festival 2013 (more by Dylan Johnson)
Peelander

Happy Halloween! As you might imagine, there's many Halloween-related shows tonight, including a number of cover shows, and of course the Village Halloween Parade! Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's spooky shows (and the regular ones too). Here are some highlights...

Holy Ghost!, Joakim, Midnight Magic, Eli Escobar, Lloydsky @ Terminal 5
They've certainly got the right name for a Halloween show. HG! should have T5 movin' with their '80s style New-Order-at-Danceteria jams. Tickets are still available.

Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Jenny Hval, Tanz Praxis ft. C.Lavender @ Basilica Hudson
Yamantaka // Sonic Titan come in costume no matter what show they're playing, so they'll feel right at home tonight at this slightly-upstate venue. Also of note on this bill is Norwegian art pop musician Jenny Hval (who has a couple shows in NYC next week too).

Peelander Z, Ken South Rock, AEON RINGS (formerly Night Vision) @ Glasslands
Another band who always come costumed, Peelander-Z are sure to bring the party tonight. And they've gone hair metal on their new album, so if you're looking for a rowdy, super-fun, hair metal Halloween, Glasslands is the place to be.

Liturgy, Alan Howarth @ 285 Kent Avenue
"Transcendental black metal" band Liturgy are teaming up with composer Alan Howarth to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Howarth's work on John Carpenter's horror classic, Halloween.

Crystal Stilts, Excepter, Zachary Cale @ Bowery Ballroom
They are leaning more '60s psych these days, but Crystal Stilts have strong gothic streak, due in no small part to Brad Hargett's deep bellow. Look for a spooky set tonight.

Gatekeeper, Mirror Mirror, DJ Bruno (Light Asylum) @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple
For a dark, gothy Halloween dance party, head to the ominous Brooklyn Masonic Temple for these electronic musicians and DJs.

The Juan Maclean (DJ Set), Justin Strauss, Evan Michael @ Cameo Gallery
If you're just looking to dance tonight, it's hard to argue with the four-on-the-floor proclivities of the Juan Maclean. Justin Strauss, meanwhile, is a legend with more than three decades of dancefloor experience having worked with everyone from Luther Vandross to Skinny Puppy. It's a late show -- doors at 10 PM -- so you can make it if you want to keep the DFA vibes rolling after Holy Ghost!

The Dickies, Chronic Sick @ Knitting Factory
The Dickies have been making new wavey punk for over three decades, and they're still kicking.

Avan Lava, Light Asylum, Zebra Katz @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
This show's got three very different artists who should all provide very fun sets in their own way. There's the upbeat synth pop of Avan Lava, the dark Light Asylum, and eccentric rapper Zebra Katz, whose "Ima Read" is always a good sing-along at his shows.

Raime, Vatican Shadow, Silent Servant, Kiss & Tell, Further Reductions, Bethany and Alyssa @ Output
Another bill leaning towards the dark and electronic: Raime will be debuting an audio/visual set, and Dominick Fernow's (Prurient) "militant religious industrial" project Vatican Shadow is not to miss either.

Murray Hill, Andy Rourke (The Smiths) (DJ Set), Steve Lewis (DJ Set), Chicks Who Love Guns @ Passenger Bar
Williamsburg's Passenger Bar is hosts this free party with MC duties from none other than legend Murray Hill and a DJ set from The Smiths' Andy Rourke and others. There's also a costume contest for anyone dressed the the "Blood, Burlesque & B-Movie" themes.

The Body, Pissgrave @ Saint Vitus Bar
Crushing duo The Body hold court with Pissgrave tonight at what for some is the only place to be on Hallowwen

DJ Dog Dick, Lakutis, Cities Aviv, DJ Uniique, Rlly Tho & Wodge Daddy, DJ John J Rambo, DJ Kristina Tequila @ Secret Location
This show's got three artists who have no problem crossing the boundaries of hip hop, DJ Dog Dick, Lakutis, and Cities Aviv. Location TBA soon.

Buster Poindexter @ Cafe Carlyle
Maybe to get in the spirit of dressing up, New York Dolls frontman David Johansen is reviving his loungey Buster Poindexter guise tonight.

Biz Markie (DJ Set) @ Brooklyn Bowl
Questlove usually does his weekly Bowl Train party at Brooklyn Bowl on Thursdays, but for Halloween, Biz Markie is taking over the boards. And he's, he's got what you need.

Jonathan Toubin's Haunted Hop @ Secret Project Robot
This is Jonathan Toubin's annual Halloween Party, and will feature a bunch of bands performing sets as other bands like The Damned, Siouxsie & the Banshees, The Seeds, Roky Erickson and more. They aren't saying who's actually performing, but Jonathan knows a few people. Plus, JT will be spinning classic spooky 45s all night. $5 in costume, $20 without.

Gabba Ghouls, Happy Jawbone Family Band, Lust Cats, Mannequin Pussy @ Lit Lounge
Vermont psych pop band Happy Jawbone Family Band and NYC punks Mannequin Pussy are always worth catching, though for the occasion you might wanna see The Gabba Ghouls too.

World/Inferno Friendship Society @ Warsaw
World/Inferno Friendship Society do their annual "Hallowmas" show on Halloween at Warsaw.

Murphys Law, Caught In A Trap, Chesty Malone And The Slice Em Ups, Skum City @ The Trash Bar
The Trash Bar is celebrating Halloween with this show which, among other things, includes long-running NYC punk band Murphy's Law.

Ed Sheeran @ Mercury Lounge
For many of us, there are few things scarier than UK singer Ed Sheeran, who has two shows at Madison Square Garden coming up. We're not sure why he's playing Mercury Lounge tonight, but maybe he's going to show us his dark side. Tickets go on sale today at noon.

Carnivores (as B-52s), Ava Luna (as Tom Tom Club), Caged Animals (as Velvet Underground), Bueno (as Wu-Tang Clan) @ Shea Stadium
This is one of the many Halloween cover shows, but it's especially notable because it's also the only NYC stop on Atlanta garage rockers and Black Lips/Deerhunter associates Carnivores' tour. They'll be playing songs by the B-52s, but also many of their own.

And here's more of those cover shows...

Celestial Shore (as Led Zeppelin), Whoarfrost (as Nirvana), Cloud Becomes Your Hand (does Jock Jams), YOU (as Interpol) @ Silent Barn

Vulture Shit as Dookie Shit, Big Ups as Breaking Brad, Flagland as Weezer, All Nines as Buckingham Buckingham Buckingham, Low Fat Getting High as Nirvana, Butter the Children as Pixies, Palehound as Pavement @ Cake Shop

Eugene Chadbourne as Jimmy Carl Black, Evan Gallagher as Thelonious Monk, Thomas Heberer as Muggsy Spanier, Tatsuya Nakatani as Johnny Cash, Louie Pearlman as Cab Calloway, Barry Mitterhof as Jethro Burns @ The Stone

Slow Warm Death

Brooklyn-based band Slow Warm Death is the current project of John Galm, who previously fronted the beloved math-emo band Snowing (and before that Street Smart Cyclist), but for this project he's taking the lo-fi/garage rock route, and he does the sound just as well and genuine as his previous style. They've shared local bills with bands like Literature and LODRO, and if you're into that kind of scene, Slow Warm Death will be right up your alley.

This past March, Slow Warm Death released their self-titled album on limited edition cassette (which is now sold out) and digitally. For a guy whose previous bands included lots of noodley guitar playing, on this record, the guitars are thick and rhythm oriented. It's got a punked up style that brings to mind bands like The Stooges or even that recent Ceremony album, but it's not without its hooks either. You can stream the album in full below or download it (name your price) at bandcamp.

As usual, the band have some local dates scheduled, including this Saturday (5/25) at Shea Stadium opening the previously discussed Lemuria show, which also has Bridge and Tunnel and Jeff Rosenstock (of Bomb the Music Industry) on the bill. Tickets for that show are still available. After that, they have shows scheduled at The Paper Box on June 3 with Honeydrum and Mannequin Pussy (tickets) and Cake Shop on June 9 with Nona, The Guts and Crow Bait.

UPDATE: As a commenter pointed out, they also play Suburbia on Friday (5/24) (330 Melrose St. in Brooklyn).

Fat Creeps in the studio
Fat Creeps

Boston's Fat Creeps released their debut EP last year and they're now in the studio, halfway done with their first full length. The band recently revealed two tracks, "Dad Weed" and "Daydreaming," which will appear on the album, as well as their split with Zebu. The songs pick up where the EP left off with rollicking guitar and a lazy Sunday drawl from the band's two singers. You can stream both tracks below.

Fat Creeps are playing some Northeast shows this winter, including a 'Party Weekend' with Philly shitgaze punks Slutever in Brooklyn, NY and Providence, RI this February. The Brooklyn show happens on February 9 at Death by Audio and Mannequin Pussy is also on that bill. Admission is $7 at the door.

All dates for Fat Creeps and Slutever, those song streams, and the 'Party Weekend' flyer below...

Useless Eaters (aka Nashville resident Seth Sutton) are currently on an East Coast tour that hits NYC this week for two shows with Nice Guys: Thursday, August 23 at Cake Shop with Sam Coffey & the Iron Lungs, and Friday, August 24 at Death by Audio with Xray Eyeballs and King Prom (mems of Numerators, Splinters, Pamela). All tour dates are at the bottom of this post.

The band have just released a new EP titled Black Night Ultraviolet (cover art above) that's four songs of dark, paranoid pop, all of which are really good. The whole thing is streamable below. The EP's standout cut, "Hypertension," is also the name of the new Useless Easters album which will be out this fall.

That EP stream and a list of Useless Eaters tour dates are below.

Arto Lindsay

No Wave legend and all-around cool dude Arto Lindsay will be performing this evening (8/8) in Union Square as part of the free Summer Nights series which is presented by the Arte Institute. Tonight's program, curated by Sao Paulo, Brazil's Instituto de Cultura Contemporeana-ICC, begins at 8 PM and also features videos by artist Eder Santos and director Cao Guimaraes. More info on tonight's show is here.

Arto Lindsay has also been added to the 285 Kent show on Friday (8/10) that was already a really good line-up with Fergus & Geronimo, Peoples Temple, Family Curse, Mannequin Pussy and DJs Habibi.

DOWNLOAD: Fergus & Geronimo - Roman Tick (MP3)

Fergus & Geronimo

Fergus & Geronimo will release their second album, Funky Was the State of Affairs, on August 7 via Hardly Art and are having a NYC record release party at 285 Kent on August 10 with openers The Peoples Temple (who were just here playing the Seaport), Family Curse and Mannequin Pussy.

The band, originally from Texas, moved to Brooklyn two years ago and left their '60s soul records at their old apartment and picked up some Devo and Spizzenergi records on the drive here. Funky Was the State of Affairs seems to be some weirdo concept record jam-packed with spiky, skronky keyboard-y new wave with occasional completely over-the-top English accents. I haven't quite figured out what the concept is, exactly, but the songs are all incredibly catchy and inventive. You can tell they had fun making this one. You can download "Roman Tick" at the top of this post.

Cover art and tracklisting for Funky Was the State of Affairs is below.

DOWNLOAD: Tacocat - Spring Break-Up (MP3)

TacocaT

Seattle's palindromic indie rockers TacocaT are visiting the East Coast for a quick tour with Philadelphia's Slutever that hits NYC tonight (7/5) at Death by Audio with Mannequin Pussy playing as well. The bands will be back in the city on July 14 at Shea Stadium with TBA openers.

Owing more than a little to '90s riot grrrl as well as Seattle bands like Fastbacks and Young Fresh Fellows, TacocaT make good time indie rock with hooks in the choruses and tongues in cheek. After a few smaller releases, the band have signed with Hardly Art who released their Take Me to Your Dealer EP earlier this year. You can download "Spring Break Up" from that EP at the top of this post.

All TacocaT / Slutever tour dates are listed below.
