Seattle's Night Beats are back with a new album, Sonic Bloom, that's out September 24 via Reverberation Appreciation Society. It's thirteen tracks of groovy, garagey psych and perfect for your next head trip. The band just made a video for album standout "The 7 Poison Wonders" which features the band on the way to a cool gig, in which they pick up a hitchhiker and things go momentarily wrong, but (spoiler) rock n' roll perseveres. Then again maybe it was just a dream. Judge for yourself, the video makes it's premiere in this post. You can watch it, and stream another track from the album, below.
Night Beats will be on the road this fall, including two stops in NYC: November 9 at Death by Audio and November 12 at Mercury Lounge. No advance tickets for DBA, but tickets for Mercury Lounge are on sale Friday (8/23) at noon.
Before their North American tour, Night Beats head to Europe where they'll play the Levitation France in Angers, FR. The two day festival (September 20 & 21) is from the Austin Psych Fest folks (who also run Reverberation Appreciation Society) and also features performances from The Black Angels, Dead Skeletons, Beak>, Dead Meadow, Damo Suzuki, Wall Of Death, Tamikrest, Camera, Lola Colt and more. Tickets are on sale now.
All Night Beats tour dates are listed, along with album art, tracklist, video and track stream, below.

Bon Iver recorded an iTunes session at East West studios which is available exclusively from iTunes starting today. It includes six tracks off 2011's great Bon Iver, Bon Iver and a cover of Bjork's "Who Is It?," which the band has played live many times. You can stream the session's opening track, "Beth/Rest" below.
As mentioned, Bon Iver is touring internationally throughout the summer and fall and will come to NYC on September 19 and 20 at Radio City Music Hall. Both of those shows are now sold out. All Bon Iver dates, including a recently announced European leg, are listed below.
Speaking of Bjork, she's teaming up with the New York Public Library (NYPL) and the Children's Museum of Manhattan to create interactive educational programs for middle school-aged students based on her Biophilia app. Speaking about the program, Bjork said:
"It's not a bookish thing. You cannot learn to make music from a book." "I love books; they're like the best ever," she added. "There are things you can only learn from books, but it's also important to introduce the physical aspects. So for me, it was very important to make, somehow, music education that was physical." (via NY Daily News)Both Bon Iver and Bjork are set to play Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway this summer (Aug 7-11) with The Stone Roses, Refused, The Afghan Whigs, Bob Mould (performing Copper Blue), Chromatics, Cloud Nothings, John Maus, Purity Ring, Saint Etienne, SBTRKT, Screaming Females, St. Vincent, and more. Full list below.
Way Out West (Aug 9-11) in Gothenberg, Sweden features many of the same bands as Oya like Bon Iver, Refused, Afghan Whigs, St. Vincent, Purity Ring, John Maus, and Bob Mould in addition to Blur, Wilco, I Break Horses, Hot Chip, The War On Drugs, Mark Lanegan Band, Adolescents, Swans, and more.
