Though they've continued to play around town, it's been a while since we've really heard any new recorded music from ARMS, the solo project of former Harlem Shakes' guitarist Todd Goldstein. After 2011's highly ambitious Summer Skills (and a subsequent EP), Todd went back school and do other life things. But the creative itch struck again and, working with drummer Tlacael Esparza, ARMS are back with EP2 which will be out via Paper Garden on September 10. That's the cover art above. The first released track from it is "Comfort," which is much more a straight-ahead rocker than anything on Summer Skills, and it's powered by a very hooky riff. You can stream it below.
ARMS have a couple upcoming shows too. They'll play Glasslands on July 27 with Night Moves, and tickets for that show are on sale now. They'll also play a release show for the new EP at Mercury Lounge on September 10. Tickets for that one go on sale today at noon.

Prog rock legends Yes have been on a tour this year which hit NYC back in April and comes to Port Chester for a Capitol Theatre show on 7/28, and that tour will return to the area on August 3 at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ for what they're calling Yestival. It's a mini festival that also features Renaissance, The Musical Box (performing Foxtrot), Carl Palmer Band, and an appearance from Roger Dean. Yes will be performing The Yes Album and Close to the Edge at the show. Tickets for Yestival are on sale now.

Django Django @ MHOW, 3/6/2013
Django Django's popularity has had a slow, steady rise over the last 12 months. Their first U.S. show was almost exactly a year ago at Glasslands (one BV presented) and now they just finished two sold-out nights at Music Hall of Williamsburg (March 6 and 7) on their biggest North American tour yet. While the setlist hasn't changed much (or at all) since March 2012, the live show production values most certainly have. Last year, their biggest visual element was an oversized tambourine. This year, they came armed with an impressive light show using projections cast on Venetian blinds. To quote a friend of mine, "Looks dope."
If you went, what did you think? Anybody go to both? You can check out more photos from Wednesday's night show -- including some of openers Night Moves -- below.
Lord Huron at Mercury Lounge in October (more by Dan Bracaglia)
As the year comes to a close, we're wrapping up these year-end lists from artists and other people in the music world. Today we posted lists by BV radio host Nick Masi, Gardens & Villa, and Brooklyn Bowl talent buyer Adam Geringer-Dunn. Browse our "Best of 2012" tag for many more. Now here's one from Ben Schneider, frontman of LA folk rockers Lord Huron. The list includes a couple veteran folk singers, who most likely influenced Ben's own writing, two very different and very notable experimental music leaders, Lord Huron tourmates Night Moves, and a '70s Afghan pop star.
Check out the full list, and some tour dates, below...
