Upstate NY's Battle Ave put out their debut record back in 2011, and they're just now getting around to giving it a followup. It's called Year of Nod, will be out May 5 via Seagreen (pre-order), and features contributions from Frankie Cosmos, Nick Corbo of Crying and LVL UP, and more. Kevin McMahon, who's worked with Titus Andronicus, Real Estate and others, produced it.
So far two songs are out from the album, "Aleph" and the brand new "Zoa," which are both chilled-out reverby indie rock with some really nice vocal melodies. Check them out below.
Battle Ave are also touring, including two shows in NYC. First they play one this week at Palisades on Thursday (4/23) with Peaer, Self and Other and Robot Princess ($5 at door), and then they return to Palisades on May 14 with O-Face, Groam & Joan son of Groam and Happy You (tickets).
All dates are listed, with the song streams, below...

Manhattan's SideWalk Cafe is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and in honor of that, they'll be having anniversary events all year long. The first of these will be the winter edition of the bi-annual Antifolk Festival, which will take place at the cafe from February 19 to 28. The 10-day festival includes a number of performers each day, and the full schedule is below. One of the notable ones is on February 26, the cafe will host Jeffrey Lewis & Peter Stampfel (of Holy Modal Rounders), who have a long collaborative history, plus Forest Creature, Larkin Grimm, and others.
Forest Creature is the new duo of Seth Faergolzia (Dufus) and John Ludington, and the Sidewalk Cafe show is part of their February/March tour, which also includes a Brooklyn show later that night (2/26) at Goodbye Blue Monday (1087 Broadway) with Chingching. They recently revealed their first track, "Beasly," a meandering antifolk cut, which you can stream below, along with a list of all dates.
