We're resurfacing an oldie from Invisible Oranges here on BrooklynVegan in honor of Shark Week 2014. In 2011 Cosmo Lee wrote:

In honor of Shark Week on The Discovery Channel: metal album covers featuring sharks.

This does not include shark-featuring album covers in other genres, like Ride's "Vapour Trail" single, Gallows' In the Belly of a Shark EP, or Great White's discography (which, admittedly, has some spectacular (ly awful) shark-featuring covers). I feel like I'm missing an obvious one or three. If you know, care to share?

We compiled the same list and added some more. There's two by M.O.D. (who are active lately) including the one above. Check out the rest below...

Johnny Aries

Though The Drums are mainly the concern of founding members Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham, they've had various live members over the years including current guitarist/bassist/backing vocalist Johnny Aries. Aries is also a solo artist who will release his debut album, Unbloomed, on August 26 via Frenchkiss. Its new single "Ambulette" isn't a million miles away from the strummy guitar pop of The Drums' earlier material (though maybe not so much like their new single), and fans of that -- or The Smiths -- should find something to dig here. The song premieres in this post. You can stream it, with another LP cut plus Aries' cover of The Smiths' "Back to the Old House," below.

Around the time of the release, Johnny Aries will play four NYC shows: Palisades on August 18 with Vamanos, Winstons and Dark Tea; Cameo on August 23 with Ponyhof (tickets); August 26 at Pianos during the Rey Pila residency and also with Boytoy, The Fluids, Wand and Shark Week; and Glasslands on August 30 opening Salt Cathedral's EP release party (tickets).

Meanwhile, as previously mentioned, The Drums will release their new album Encyclopedia this year (due 9/23 via Minor Records) and are going on a tour with Beverly that hits NYC on 9/16 at MHOW (tickets) and 9/20 at Bowery Ballroom (sold out).

The Babies @ Glasslands, 6/6/12 (more by Tamara Porras)
Sandy Benefit

There have been a lot of benefit concerts here in NYC to aid Hurricane Sandy victims and there are likely to be even more to come. There certainly are a lot of people who still need our help. Here are a few we just learned about.

The Babies record release show at Knitting Factory on Tuesday (11/13) we already alerted you to has become a Hurricane Sandy benefit of sorts. You can get $2 off the door with a donation for Hurricane Sandy Relief. Here's what's needed:

-Heavy duty cleaning supplies: bleach, industrial trash bags, contractor bags, brooms, mops, buckets, simple green, work gloves, goggles
-Blankets,
-Warm clothing, like heavy coats, gloves, hats, scarves.
-Diapers, baby food, bottles, formula.
-Food in general but specifically food that is appropriate for children (snack foods, cereal, rice, pb&j, bread)-
-Some places need flashlights & batteries, especially C or D.
You can stream The Babies' new album, Our House on the Hill (out 11/13), in full over at SPIN and is really good, well worth a listen. The Babies have become a formidable live force too and, if truth be told, I like them more than either Vivian Girls or Woods (with whom they share members and I like just fine). We're also giving a pair of tickets away to this show (which also features Alex Bleeker and the Freaks and the Sundelles) and details are at the bottom of this post (And if you win, bring extra stuff!).

Also on Tuesday in Williamsburg, the Finger on the Pulse / Snacky Tunes guys are throwing a Sandy relief benefit at Cameo featuring Moon Hooch, Emil & Friends and Erika Spring with DJ sets from Computer Magic. $5 at the door with 100% of the door and 10% of the bar going to the Red Hook Initiative. Flyer for the show is below.

Backing up a bit, on Sunday afternoon (11/11) at Matchless there's a benefit show with BV faves Heliotropes, DC bandShark Week, plus Zula, and Fantasmes. The party goes from 3 - 7 PM and is a $10 donation at the door. 100% door + 10% bar will be donated to New York Cares.

Shark Week are also playing another Sandy relief benefit the night before (11/10) at XPO 929 with Love Darling, and Clinical Trials. $8 at the door, more info here.

Flyers and contest details are below.
