Tonight's edition of WIERD at Home Sweet Home (11/7) features two live performances. Headlining the night is former Brooklyn duo Featureless Ghost who now call Atlanta their home. They just released their debut album, Personality Matrix, which mixes a lot of '80s synth genres (industrial, New Beat, synthpop, etc) and you can stream the whole thing below. The band are on tour and all dates are listed at the bottom of this post.
Also playing WIERD tonight is Nao Katafuchi who makes his music right here in NYC and whose new EP, Yumegoto, can also be streamed below. The retro-future pop sounds contained within could've been the soundtrack to some William Gibson movie never made. You can stream the EP (cover art by Xeno & Oaklander's Liz Wendelbo) below as well.
Nao is also playing a WT Records party at the Body Actualized Center (143 Troutman St, Brooklyn) on November 16 with labelmates Woz and Seabats playing. More info on that show is here.
Streams and Featureless Ghost tour dates are listed below.
Anasazi at Public Assembly (more by Tamara Porras)
Gothic post-punk crew Dream Affair will lead off a four-band bill tonight (8/1) at Public Assembly, joined by NYC favorites Anasazi, gothic-"gypsy rock" from Religious to Damn and Nao Katafuchi. Tickets are available at the door.
The show doubles as both a welcome and farewell party, with Anasazi celebrating the release of their new 7 inch I Saw The Witch Cry (out now via Sacred Bones) and Religious to Damn waving goodbye to their namesake to pursue a different direction:
Hi everyone! Big news. We feel that significant changes to our lineup as well as a more full-fledged electronic approach to the music has basically made us a different band, so we've decided to treat it as such. We're putting the finishing touches on the new webpages, photos, and tracks, so stay tuned: we'll announce the new name and direct you all to our new pages very, very, very soon.
Stream one song from that new Anasazi 7" alongside material from all bands below.
In semi-related news, the next few WIERD parties at Home Sweet Home will be notable ones, with tonight (8/1) featuring Believer/Law and next week (8/8) featuring an appearance from Future Blondes. The WIERD parties jump off late, so a stop by Home Sweet Home after Public Assembly is entirely possible.
