Versus at Chickfactor 20 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
The Philippines are still recovering from devastating Typhoon Haiyan (aka Yolanda) which hit the country back in November. There have been a few benefits here in NYC -- most notably David Byrne's staging of Here Lies Love at Terminal 5 -- but this Saturday (1/11) there's one at Shea Stadium featuring bands with ties to the Philippines. Headliners are indie rock vets Versus (who haven't had a NYC show in a good while), and also features pow wow!, Crazy Pills, Quiet Loudly, The Planes, and Let's Be Loveless. Tickets are $10 at the door and all proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Typhoon Relief Effort.
Flyer for the benefit below...
As mentioned, White Fence's new album, Cyclops Reap, is out this week on John Dwyer's Castle Face label. Tim Presley doesn't seem to be running out of songs and this is another quality batch of paisley-scented psychedelia. You can stream "To The Boy I Jumped In The Hemlock Alley" below and hear the whole record over at Pitchfork.
White Fence will be in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival in June, playing two shows: the Panache showcase at Brooklyn Bowl on June 13 and then a late show at Knitting Factory on June 14. Tickets to the Knitting Factory show are on sale now; no word on Brooklyn Bowl tickets just yet.
The whole Panache showcase line-up is still forthcoming but we do know its being headlined by Mac DeMarco and we have updated dates for him below as well.
These are just a couple of the additions to the 2013 Northside line-up that includes that free Walkmen show in McCarren Park. Other new additions, Kylesa, Torche, Sonny & the Sunsets, Nü Sensae, Kisses, The Luyas and more. Northside line-up as it stands now is below.

DOWNLOAD: Beliefs - "Catch My Breath" (MP3)
Toronto shoegazers Beliefs are made up primarily of Josh Korody (who runs the studio Candle Recording, and has recorded Owen Pallett, Austra, Doldrums, and many more) and Jesse Crowe, but also feature other musicians both live and in the studio. Their self titled debut full length comes out on March 5 in the US via Manimal. No Pain in Pop will release it in Europe and Hand Drawn Dracula in Canada. They recently revealed the album's single, "Gallows Bird," but over the course of the last year or so they dropped other tracks from the album like "Catch My Breath" (which there's a video for), "Iron Streams," and digital bonus track, "Violets." And they also have recorded live video sessions for Exclaim! TV of two other album cuts, "Lily" and "Dead Water."
They definitely have a big love for the dreamy shoegaze of Slowdive, Ride, and of course My Bloody Valentine (who they've covered). If you like to describe your favorite guitar sounds as "swirling" and prefer your reverb with a side of vocals, this band is for you. You can download "Catch My Breath" at the top of this post, and stream it, along with those other tracks and videos, below.
Beliefs are working on putting together a short North American tour this year, and while all of the dates aren't finalized yet, we know that they'll be coming to NYC for shows on March 6 at Death by Audio with Heliotropes and Quiet Loudly and March 23 at Shea Stadium. Those shows fall on either side of SXSW where the band will be too, so if you're going, look out for them there.
Meanwhile, you can catch Heliotropes in NYC even sooner when they play The Paper Box on February 8 with JCK Davey, Dead Stars, The Veda Rays, and Strangers. Advance tickets for that show are on sale now.

Astoria, Queens' pow wow! are still kicking, if you were wondering, and have just released their long-cooking debut album, Don't Stop to Look, which finds the band leaving the party soul vibe of their early singles in favor of a folky jangle a la The Tyde or Felt. It's a nice little record, and you can stream the entire thing below.
Meanwhile, the band will be playing a CMJ week show at the Whatever Blog's party at The Gutter on Friday (10/19) with Wojcik, Passenger Peru and Quiet Loudly. Shortly after, pow wow! will be hitting the road with Quiet Loudly for a short East Coast/Midwest tour that kicks off on November 8 at Big Snow Buffalo Lodge. All tour dates are below.
Hilly Eye at Bowery Ballroom in 2011 (more by Devan Council)
Hilly Eye (aka Amy Klein formerly of Titus Andronicus and Catherine Tung) will release their first 7" on Don Giovanni Records this spring and will follow that with a full length, due out on the label this summer.
They've got two local shows coming up, including one on Thursday (2/23) at Cake Shop with Quiet Loudly, Magnetic Island, and Passenger Peru, and another on March 11 at Public Assemly with Shigeto, Gross Relations, Hard Nips, Desert Sharks, and more. The show is part of Sunrise Fest, a memorial/benefit festival for the one year anniversary of the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan last year (3/11/11). The fest runs all day from 2 PM to 11 PM with over 20 performances and is open to "all ages, all races, all people in this generation."
Both dates dates are listed with a video of the band at Ladyfest Boston below...

Miracles of Modern Science @ Cake Shop
Miracles of Modern Science kicked off a 3-week residency at Cake Shop on Thursday night, June 10th. Opening that show were The Royal Chains, Quiet Loudly, and The Albertans...
"You could say The Albertans are from Vancouver, Canada, and in a limited way you wouldn't be wrong. You could also say they lay claim to a creative pedigree from the Brooklyn autoclave and expect only one retort: Right you are. Musical polyglot and songwriter Joel Bravo, a native of Milwaukee, and bassist Ian Everall, Albertan by birth, met while members of New York's Bravo Silva. When that outfit ended they, along with a large and talented rotating cast of players, began playing in New York City under the name Sex with an Angel. They played CMJ in 2007, they moved to Vancouver in 2008, took up the name The Albertans and, along with a few new fellow travelers, took on the challenges of realizing a pop vision." [Ernest Jenning Records]The residency continues this Thursday, June 17th, with Dinosaur Feathers and more. Pictures and a video from week one (of 3 of the 4 bands), below...
