We were just saying Jade Tree Records is back (though they say don't call it a comeback). The label has now uploaded their entire catalog to bandcamp with full streams of all the albums and downloads available for $5 or less.
That means if your iTunes is missing say, The Promise Ring's Nothing Feels Good, Lifetime's Jersey's Best Dancers, Jets to Brazil's Orange Rhyming Dictionary, Pedro the Lion's Control, Cap'n Jazz's Analphabetapolothology, Owls' self-titled, Fucked Up's Hidden World, Joan of Arc's How Memory Works, Avail's 4AM Friday, New End Original's Thriller, Paint It Black's Paradise, Kid Dynamite's self-titled, or Young Widows' Settle Down City, you can now easily remedy that. Plus there's tons more, including new releases like the upcoming Dark Blue single.
In related news, Owls are touring and hitting NYC on July 11 at Bowery Ballroom with Hop Along and Glocca Morra (tickets). And you can hear Pedro the Lion frontman David Bazan reworking some of that band's material on his new album and tour with the Passenger String Quartet.
Check out their bandcamp here and stream a few of the classics below...

If all the old emo bands can reunite, the labels can too, right? Jade Tree Records, home of releases by Jets to Brazil, Owls, New End Original, The Promise Ring and many others, has been mostly quiet (but not entirely inactive -- their last release was a Slutever 7" in 2013) for the past few years, but they are now set to be "putting out records consistently again."
This news comes along with the announcement that they've signed Dark Blue (the new-ish Philly trio with members of Clockcleaner, Paint It Black, Ceremony and Purling Hiss) whose last release was a 7" on Katorga Works. Dark Blue's first release on Jade Tree will be the Just Another Night With The Boys 7" that comes out on July 15. The new single is backed by a cover of John Cale's "Hungry For Love." Both have singer John Sharkey III crooning in his goth baritone that's in a lineage of everyone from Joy Division to Interpol to Merchandise. Stream both tracks from the 7" below.
Dark Blue also have a few dates coming up, including a previously discussed stop in NYC opening for Lower when their tour hits Acheron on Friday (5/30). That show also includes La Cruor and tickets are still available. Lower also play Nothing Changes at Home Sweet Home on Wednesday (5/28) with Survival.
All Dark Blue dates are listed, with the song streams, below...

Fat Creeps in the studio
Boston's Fat Creeps released their debut EP last year and they're now in the studio, halfway done with their first full length. The band recently revealed two tracks, "Dad Weed" and "Daydreaming," which will appear on the album, as well as their split with Zebu. The songs pick up where the EP left off with rollicking guitar and a lazy Sunday drawl from the band's two singers. You can stream both tracks below.
Fat Creeps are playing some Northeast shows this winter, including a 'Party Weekend' with Philly shitgaze punks Slutever in Brooklyn, NY and Providence, RI this February. The Brooklyn show happens on February 9 at Death by Audio and Mannequin Pussy is also on that bill. Admission is $7 at the door.

Northampton rockers Potty Mouth formed back in 2011 and they've quickly become one of the most promising new bands in their local scene. They first caught our ears with the Sun Damage EP, which came out in July, 2012. The EP has its roots in '90s alternative and indie, and like the bands that inspire Potty Mouth, they aren't afraid to actually rock. They just recently followed that EP with a new single, "Damage," which you can watch the video for below. "Damage" picks up where the EP leaves off, but with thicker production and in terms of all around songwriting, it might be their best track to date.
Potty Mouth have a few NYC shows coming over the next month or so. They'll play XPO 929 on February 15 with In School, Kicking Spit, and Spirit of Danger (more info here).
They're also part of the stacked Indie Pop Prom on February 28 at 285 Kent with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Swearin' Waxahatchee, and Weed Hounds. Tickets are $10 or $8 if you come dressed in prom attire, and are on sale now. Their only other announced date that we're aware of is a hometown show with Hilly Eye, Slutever, and Tomboy.
The band will then play the next night (March 1) at the New Museum in conjunction with their new exhibit "NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star."

Hunters @ BrooklynVegan day party @ Public Assembly (10/20/12)
Brooklyn's own Hunters can be found headlining a local show at Death By Audio tonight (10/26) with Slutever and These Days. Flier at the end of this post. UPDATE: Hunters also open for METZ at Mercury Lounge (tickets).
Hunters were one of the 14 bands who played the BrooklynVegan day party at Public Assembly on Saturday. You saw one set of pictures from the whole show, but here's another of Hunters. They continue, along with a new video of the band performing on the roof of Factory Studios in Brooklyn, below...

DOWNLOAD: Tacocat - Spring Break-Up (MP3)
Seattle's palindromic indie rockers TacocaT are visiting the East Coast for a quick tour with Philadelphia's Slutever that hits NYC tonight (7/5) at Death by Audio with Mannequin Pussy playing as well. The bands will be back in the city on July 14 at Shea Stadium with TBA openers.
Owing more than a little to '90s riot grrrl as well as Seattle bands like Fastbacks and Young Fresh Fellows, TacocaT make good time indie rock with hooks in the choruses and tongues in cheek. After a few smaller releases, the band have signed with Hardly Art who released their Take Me to Your Dealer EP earlier this year. You can download "Spring Break Up" from that EP at the top of this post.
All TacocaT / Slutever tour dates are listed below.
