Brooklyn's Body Language, whose billboard in Times Square you may have seen earlier this year when your relatives were visiting, will release their sophomore album, The Grammar LP, in July. Dipping into that early-'80s netherworld where new wave and R&B comingled, it will make head-bobbing summertime listening. The album's first single is "What's the Point?" and we've got the premiere of its video in this post. You can watch below.
Body Language have a couple appearances lined up here in Brooklyn, DJing Friday (4/19) at Brooklyn Bowl as part of French Horn Rebellion's residency there. Tickets are still available. They'll also play Glasslands on May 5 for a Cinco de Mayo party with Pegasus Warning and #1 Kid. Tickets are still available for that one too.

Pegasus Warning at Brooklyn Bowl in October (more by Sarah Gainer)
Pegasus Warning (aka NYC musician Guillermo E. Brown) is probably best known for the artists he's collaborated with, which include CANT, Das Racist, Twin Shadow, Spoek Mathambo, Saul Williams, Tortoise, Anti-Pop Consortium, El-P, Arto Lindsay, Jamie Lidell, and more. But there's a good chance that will change when he releases his debut EP, Woof Ticket, this February. The EP features the single, "Nothing2Show," a soul and rock inflicted electro cut that wouldn't sound out of place on Bloc Party's Intimacy. You can stream that single and a Gordon Voidwell remix of the track below.
Pegasus Warning will be playing a hometown show at The Bowery Electric TONIGHT (11/28) with Vernous and DJ Sexy Precious. Doors are at 9 and admission is $10 for tonight's 21+ show.
As mentioned, one of Guillermo's collaborators, Jamie Lidell has a new self titled album coming out this February too. If you were a fan of the abrasive R&B of that album's single, "What A Shame," you'll probably find something to like in Pegasus Warning also.
Streams are below.

Like many other East Village and Lower East Side venues , The Bowery Electric is closed for the next few days due to Hurricane Sandy aftermath.

Sinkane @ Brooklyn Bowl - 10/23/2012
For such a multifaceted album, Mars feels personal, in part because most of the instrumentation and nearly all of the vocals come from one man. In every track, Gallab plays at least three instruments (in "Caparundi," he's credited with nine), and each instrument bears traces of the sounds that influenced Gallab. In the funky twang of the guitar that opens "Runnin'," the dance-friendly 4/4 kick running under "Jeeper Creeper" and the cosmic flourishes that pepper the jazzy title track, Gallab finds consistency in experimentation, and focus in the freewheeling....We have some pictures here from last night's show.
