Vancouver's Wake Owl (the moniker of singer/songwriter Colyn Cameron) released their debut album, The Private World of Paradise, in March via Vagrant. With crisp production from Shins member Richard Swift, the record is full of smart, tuneful pop that's much more interesting than the band's name might lead you to believe. (Mumford-style folk it is not.) You can stream the whole album below.
Many of the dates on Wake Owl's tour are with another band with an avian name, Portland's Mimicking Birds. They aren't on Wake Owl's NYC show, but they do play their own show at Rough Trade on April 27 with Such Hounds and Bird Courage. Tickets to that show are on sale now. Mimicking Birds' new album, Eons, will be out May 13 via Glacial Pace Recordings. You can check out the somber single "Bloodlines" below.
Both bands' dates are listed, with those song streams, below...
German psych-rock jammers (of the Pink Floyd variety) Okta Logue were last on our side of the Atlantic this past fall, and they've since announced that they'll come back this March. Upon their return, they'll play SXSW and they'll make stops in Brooklyn before and after for free shows at Knitting Factory on March 7 and March 21. The first Knit show is with Marianne's Wish and the second is with Such Hounds. Both are midnight shows. All currently announced dates are listed below.
On their last tour here they filmed a video for the song "Chase the Day" off their Tales of Transit City LP. The video splices together clips of them all over country, and it makes its premiere in this post. You can watch it, along with the list of tour dates, below...
