DOWNLOAD: WHY? - "Jonathan's Hope" (MP3)
As posted before, WHY? are on tour now with Doseone, Serengeti, and DJ Thanksgiving Brown which hits NYC tonight (9/13) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tonight's show is sold out but you'll have another chance to see them in October, because they've just added a NYC date to their upcoming tour with Naytronix (aka tUnE-yArDs bassist Nate Brenner), which kicks off about a month after their current tour ends. (They'll also be over in Europe in between the two North American tours.) The tour with Naytronix brings them back to Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 21 for a show with The Black Swans. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/14) at noon.
WHY? released the Sod in the Seed EP last month and are releasing their new full length album, Mumps, Etc., on on October 9 via Anticon. You can download Mumps, Etc. single, "Jonathan's Hope," above or stream it, along with the entire Sod in the Seed EP, plus check out the updated list of dates, below.

As mentioned previously, tUnE-yArDs bassist Nate Brenner has a solo project coming out under the name Naytronix and the album will be out October 9 via Plug Research. We've got the premiere of the band's new video "Don't Walk Away" which you can watch below. With its horn-filled arrangement, it's a catchy little number. There's also a stream of it too, along with the Yalls remix of the track.
Naytronix have also just been tapped to open for Why? for part of their upcoming tour, though not at the NYC stop at Music Hall of Williamsburg in September. Hopefully Naytronix will schedule a show here soon. Meanwhile, you can check out all announced Naytronix dates listed below, along with the video and song streams.

Merrill Garbus at World Financial Garden - 6/30/12
tUnE-yArDs mastermind Merrill Garbus teamed up with Roomful of Teeth, William Britelle and Judd Greenstein & The Yehudim on June 30 to kick off the indie/classical Ecstatic Summer concert series, which is part of the River to River festival and happens this summer at the World Financial Center. Merrill played both solo and with vocal group Roomful of Teeth, who also performed Merrill and William Britelle compositions at the show. Merrill's set included tUnE-yArDs songs including a new one called "Not Dead Yet." The Yehudim, who count Olga Bell as a member, opened the show (and that's why Olga couldn't be in Montauk with her new band Dirty Projectors that night. Olga has since played Music Hall and Prospect Park with the Projectors who she is now on tour with). Here are some pictures from the Ecstatic show.
The series of free shows continues this Saturday (7/14) with Oneohtrix Point Never, David Lang, and A Far Cry Orchestra. As mentioned, "The third show is on August 25 and will feature Brooklyn disco orchestra Escort collaborating with the equally large Darcy James Argue's Secret Society."
In other tUnE-yArDs news, bassist Nate Brenner also has a solo project called Naytronix, under which he will release his debut LP, Dirty Glow, on October 9 via Plug Research. That LP will be supported with a TBA fall tour, which includes MusicFestNW. The cover art, tracklist, and a video for the appropriately named track, "Robotic," are below, along with more pictures from the Ecstatic Summer show.
The 2012 edition of MusicFestNW takes place in September 5 - 9 at 18 venues in Portland, OR and will feature performances from over 150 bands, including Passion Pit, Hot Snakes, Girl Talk, Danny Brown, Beirut Silversun Pickups, Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, many more.
In addition to those previously announced artists, MFNW has just added The Hives, Flying Lotus, Wild Nothing, DIIV, Quasi, Moon Duo, My Goodness, DZ Deathrays, and Strand Of Oaks to the already impressive line-up. Wristbands, available various levels and packages, and tickets to individual shows are on sale now. Check out the complete MFNW lineup below.
