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...
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.
On 4/1, while Daniel Martin Moore was playing Bowery Ballroom, his collaborator Ben Sollee was playing Cameo with Tracy Bonham, one day after playing a Japan Benefit at City Winery the night before with Marshall Crenshaw, Nicole Atkins and others. How was that show?
If you missed Sollee, luckily there are many more chances to catch him in the coming months. A recently-announced May & June tour includes three new NYC dates - a two night stay at Rockwood Music Hall on 5/12 (tickets) & 5/13 (tickets) with Sean Rowe, and a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 6/29 (tickets).
Ben Sollee's new LP, Inclusions (pictured above), is due on May 10th in various incarnations (CD, LP, CD+LP, Digital + LP, etc) via his Bandcamp. Head on over there for all lyrics from his upcoming LP too, as well as streams of his collaborative LP with Daniel Martin Moore.
