Austin's Feathers will release their debut album, If All Now Here, will be out April 15. You can check out the recently-released video for their dark-n-slinky single "Land of the Innocent," below.
As mentioned, Feathers will be here next month right after SXSW for a show at Glasslands on March 20 with Dan Croll (tickets). The band have just added a couple more NYC shows while here, too. They'll play Mercury Lounge on March 20 with Tempers and Swim Deep and tickets to that show are currently on AmEx presale with the regular on-sale happening Fridya (2/22) at noon. Feathers will also play March 22 at The Standard East Village as part of the Annie O series.

One of my favorite albums of last year was the debut album by UK band TOY. Featuring ex members of Joe Lean & the Jing Jang Jong (don't hold that against them) and fronted by Tom Dougall (brother of Rose Elinor Dougall), the band make motorik shoegaze that doesn't skimp on the hooks. (Yes, they are a little like The Horrors.) You can stream the album below and check out a few music videos ("Motoring" is especially good).
The band will be in North America for SXSW and will play two shows NYC on the way back: Mercury Lounge on March 19 with fellow UK band Swim Deep. Tickets go on sale Friday (2/15) at noon. TOY will then play Knitting Factory on March 20 and tickets to that show are on sale now.
Videos and streams are below.
