Brooklyn Bowl during a Deer Tick show (more by Tracy Allison)
As you probably know, we've been posting a bunch of year-end lists from artists this year, and we've also posted a few from venue guys like Josh Moore and Johnny Beach from Bowery Presents, Jack "Skippy" McFadden of Emo's in Austin, and Andy Bodor from Cake Shop. Now we've got a top 10 albums list from Brooklyn Bowl talent buyer (aka booker) Adam Geringer-Dunn. You can see Adam's full list below.
Brooklyn Bowl is where Lucero (who gave us two year-end lists) are beginning their New Year's Eve run. The country punks will play a two-night stand at the Brooklyn venue on Friday (12/28) with Nude Beach and Saturday (12/29) with Hollis Brown. Tickets for night 1, night 2, or both nights are still available, and we're also giving away a 2-day pass. Details on how to enter to win are below. Lucero also play NYE at Wellmont Theatre with The Hold Steady, which is one of many New Year's Eve options in the NYC area.

Grimes @ Music Hall of Williamsburg (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Josh Moore, talent buyer at Bowery Presents, is in charge of booking shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg, but you'll also find gigs he booked at places like Brooklyn Bowl, Webster Hall and Terminal 5. You can also blame him for both Jam Cruise and Holy Ship. Like his his associate Johnny Beach and ex-Bell House/Union Hall/Rock Shop booker Jack "Skippy" McFadden before him, Josh gave us a list of his favorite albums of 2012. Check it out, along with some related videos, below...

The Amazing at Metro in Chicago, 11/13/12 (more by James Richards VI)
Sweden's The Amazing just wrapped up their tour with Tame Impala and have already made plans to head back to North America. The band will be playing the Tomorrow Never Knows festival in Chicago in January and will stop in NYC on the way there for a show at Mercury Lounge on January 25. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, December 7 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (12/5) at noon.. No other North American dates have been announced yet, but seems like a long way to travel just for two shows.
Meanwhile, Tame Impala, whose new album Lonerism topped NME's Albums of 2012 list, will be back in NYC on February 19 for a show at Terminal 5 and tickets for that show go on sale today (11/30) at noon.
And in related news, Norwegian band Young Dreams, who have toured Europe with Tame Impala, have done a pretty incredible cover of Tame Impala's "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" which they have subtly renamed "Feels Like We Only Go Bachwards" which nods to both Johan Sebastian Bach and maybe Burt Bacharach, but sounds more like Brian Wilson is the big influence. You can stream it below and it will be released as a b-side to Tame Impala's original as a single next month.

Tame Impala @ MHOW, 11/7/2012 (via @jacobbetesh)
Tame Impala played Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (11/9), a sold-out show as part of their tour with The Amazing (who played Mercury Lounge last week). The pair will do it again on Saturday night (11/10) at Webster Hall which is also sold out. Did you go to the show? How was it?
In other Tame Impala news, the band just released a video for new single "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" from their album Lonerism. Directors Joe Pelling and Becky Sloan's head trip (literally) vision for the clip is old-school hand animated, looking like something from vintage '70s Sesame Street. Still it's hard for this to beat PS22 Chorus' take on the same song. Videos of both are below.
As you may know, Sweden's The Amazing will be on the road with Tame Impala for their upcoming tour which hits NYC on November 7 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and November 10 at Webster Hall, both of which are sold out. New York will have another chance to see The Amazing at a much smaller venue, as the band will play Mercury Lounge on November 5 right before their tour starts. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (10/5) at noon with an AmEx presale on Wednesday (10/3). All dates are listed below.
The Amazing's new album, Gentle Stream, is out October 23 on Partisan Records and you can stream a track from it below.
In related news, Melody's Echo Chamber (whose album was produced by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker) are currently on the road with The Raveonettes and will play Webster Hall this Friday (10/5). Tickets are still available and we're giving a pair away via Facebook. Both Melody's Echo Chamber and The Raveonettes' new LPs are streaming below.
Tame Impala at MHOW last week (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Australian psychedelic rock revivalists Tame Impala, who were just in North America for Lollapalooza and a packed NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, will return on what will
presumably be a larger tour in the fall with The Amazing. A full tour announcement hasn't come yet, but the band will be in NYC for shows on November 7 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and November 10 at Webster Hall. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (8/17) at noon.
UPDATE: The full tour has been announced. All dates are listed below.
Tame Impala's new album, Lonerism, is due out October 5 via Modular. If you haven't yet, you can listen to two of its tracks, "Elephant" and "Apocalypse Dreams," below. Also if you missed it, their justice-doing cover of Fleetwood Mac's "That's All For Everyone" from the tribute album, Just Tell Me That You Want Me (out this week), can be streamed below as well.
Swedish collective The Amazing, who share members with Dungen and are opening the new North American dates, release their U.S. debut Gentle Stream via Partisan Records on October 23rd. We caught them live earlier this year in Norway.
A list of all currently known dates and those streams are below.
the basement of Helvete in Oslo
Day two of By:Larm (read about day one HERE) started out with a "black metal" tour of Oslo lead by Anders Odden who has played with everyone from Celtic Frost to Satyricon to Ministry and played in death metallers Cadaver. The tour, which was especially educational for those with limited knowledge of the genre, took us to Holmenkollen Chapel (which was famously burned down by Varg Vikernes, Faust & Euronymous), the site of Helvete (the store owned by Euronymous of Mayhem) which is now a coffee shop, and Neseblod Records, a sort of museum/record store located downtown.

Real Estate @ Brooklyn Bowl in August (more by Oren Loloi)
Real Estate have only been around short time, but it seems like hardly a week goes by without a show from the band or one of its member's solo projects (Ducktails, Predator Vision, etc.). They'll finally get around to releasing their debut LP, a self-titled record, on November 17th on the Woodsist label. The first track from that is posted above and two other "album versions" are up on their Myspace.
Real Estate play a tour send-off/Showpaper benefit on October 14th at Monster Island Basement with Big Troubles and Honeydos. The tour in question is a short jaunt down South, before they return for a slew of CMJ-related shows. The first of those happen October 21st at Pianos and Santos (the later of which is an Oh My Rockness party with The Drums and others). Their other CMJ gigs include an Underwater Peoples showcase at The Delancey, a Death & Taxes show at Glasslands on October 22nd with Japandroids (one of many CMJ gigs for that band) and a Mexican Summer/Kemado Showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 24th. Joining them at MHOW will be Farmer Dave Scher (his first in NYC since opening for Jenny Lewis in June), Young Prisms, The Smith Westerns who have other CMJ shows TBA), and The Amazing, a Swedish group with members of the Kemado-signed Dungen, Anna Jarvinen and Sagor & Swing (streaming tracks at their MySpace). Tickets for that Music Hall show are on sale.
One artist who's not playing that show or any CMJ shows at all is Washed Out (Georgia's Ernest Greene). He'll play just one NYC show (his second live show ever) one day before CMJ at Santos Party House on October 19th with Restless People. Tickets are on sale. I tried to get him to open the BrooklynVegan CMJ show at Music Hall on October 20th (one day later), but he said he can't even stay in town that long due to personal commitments back home.
Rising, Breaking, Band to Watch vs Bear, Washed Out (the next Neon Indian even), though fairly new to the scene, already appears on a free Outfitters compilation that also includes tracks by Girls, Vivian Girls, A Place to Bury Strangers, No Age, Le Loup, Rain Machine, The xx, The Very Best, Kurt Vile and The Dodos (who have two NYC shows this week). Washed Out's "Life of Leisure" 12" is out on Mexican Summer now.
One day after CMJ (10/25), Real Estate play a 1:00PM NYC show just for kids (Kidrockers) at The Living Room with... Neon Indian. Tickets are on sale ("Adults must be accompanied by a kid and vice versa").
Real Estate will follow up their CMJ with a November tour with Girls. That hits Maxwell's on November 2nd and Bowery Ballroom on November 6th. Real Estate album, tour dates and flyers below...
