DOWNLOAD: Railbird - Jump Ship (MP3)
Brooklyn's Railbird are currently in residency at Pete's Candy Store in Williamsburg where they play every Wednesday in July. Tonight (7/18) the electronic-leaning quartet share the bill with Ryan Martin. You can watch a little video trailer for the residency at the bottom of this post.
The band have a few other Brooklyn shows coming up including Pianos on Thursday (7/19) with Way Yes; Mercury Lounge on August 8 opening for Heather Christian & the Arbornauts (tickets); and Cameo Gallery on August 23.
Railbird have a new single, "Jump Ship," that features ANTI recording artist Sean Rowe and Sarah Barthel of Phantogram with whom they've played shows (like Bowery Ballroom in 2010). You can download it above, or stream it below where you'll also find a cool cover of Fleetwood Mac's "That's All." There's more Railbird music to check out at their Facebook page.
Speaking of Phantogram's Barthel, she's DJing at Hudson Terrace tomorrow night which is free with RSVP. So if Barthel is in town, wonder if she'll pop over to Pete's to sing tonight?
As for Phantogram, they're currently on tour and play Philadelphia on Friday with Sleigh Bells and Twin Shadow. All tour dates are listed below.

Florida duo Blonds (not to be confused with NYC duo Blondes) are currently in NYC (and loving it) recording their full length album. The album will be the followup to their Dark Roots EP, which includes a cover of Radiohead's "Talk Show Host," and can be streamed in full on bandcamp. Of the Radiohead cover, singer Cari Rae told Rolling Stone:
"'Talk Show Host' is my favorite Radiohead song, but Jordy [Asher] was apprehensive to cover it at first because of his immense respect for the band. He said it was like attempting to play with perfection. I begged him for almost a month, and I'm happy to say my persistence paid off."The band is made up of Cari Rae and Jordy Asher (who are dating) and fit in well with the other boy/girl duos creating indie pop/dream pop lately (Stereogum compares them to Tennis & Cults). Check out the sexy video of EP track "206" (which they label NSFW), that they star in, below.
While Blonds are in NYC, they'll be playing some shows including an early show TONIGHT (3/21) at Mercury Lounge with Thunder and Lightning. $10 tickets for this show will be available at the door. They also play Pete's Candy Store on 3/28 with Tamsin, Pianos on 3/29 with Praha Depart, Yellow Monsters, Crying Nut, 3rd Line Butterfly, Sea Monsters, and Duologue (tickets) and Pete's Candy Store again on April 26.
If you catch their show at Mercury Lounge tonight, stick around to see Breton play a late show at the same venue.

New York's Jeffrey Lewis has been busy in the last year. (To see exactly how busy, check out Jeff's "A Year in Love and Music" entry on the NYT's Measure for Measure blog, to which he's been contributing.)
Jeff's four-date tour with Dufus finishes this Saturday, March 14th in Brooklyn at Pete's Candy Store with a CD release show for Dufus's new record, In Monstrous Attitude (samples at link). In May/April, Dufus will head out on a European tour (dates below). The Dufus album features comic art by Jeffrey Lewis, who is releasing his own new album (as full-band Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard) 'Em Are I on April 20th (UK/Europe) and May 19th (US), both on Rough Trade Records.
Jeffrey recently put his drawing talents to use (as he does in his comics and elsewhere) in a new video for the song "To Be Objectified" (which appears on the upcoming album). The video was created with Jack Ferry and $99 Music Videos - a site that challenges musicians to make a video for that sum with a set of bare-bones criteria. Watch it, and the making of it, below.
Jeff will tour Europe March-May with a solo/full-band tour that eventually reaches New York's Bowery Ballroom on Wednesday, May 20th (tix on sale now) - a venue featured prominently in Lewis's "Williamsburg Will Oldham Horror," video below.
Next Thursday (3/19), Jeff will give a lecture on Watchmen (the topic of his college thesis) at midtown comic spot Jim Hanley's Universe. "It should be stressed that it's for people who have read the book, not for people interested in it looking for some kind of introduction... he'll be revealing too many spoilers!." Jeff gave a similar lecture in Portland, OR, and London earlier this year.
All tour dates, Jeff's "A Quick Biography of Barack Obama," and the above-mentioned videos, below...
