Treasure Fleet, the Chicago band featuring members of The Arrivals, The Lawrence Arms and The Smoking Popes who put their punk spin on '60s mod/psych pop, will release the followup to 2012's Future Ways this year. It's called The Sun Machine and is due on February 10 via Recess Records (pre-order). Its new single "Max Consumption" is most likely named after The Kinks' "Maximum Consumption" (and it quotes some of its lyrics, as well as quoting Harry Nilsson's "Coconut" and Queens of the Stone Age's "Feel Good Hit of the Summer"), but it sounds more like a punked up take on The Village Green Preservation Society. That song premieres in this post and can be listened to below.
The album also functions as the soundtrack to their sci-fi film of the same name, which premiered at London's Raindance Film Festival last year. The film trailer (aka the music video for another track, "The View from Mt Olympus"), also below...

Treasure Fleet sound like they've been in a time capsule, and I mean that with the utmost respect. The band's sugary-sweet mix of 60's mod pop-psych mixed with a dash of punk rock seems almost as if it has forgone any influence from bands in the past thirty years to craft their debut for Recess Records. Comprised of members of The Arrivals, Lawrence Arms, Smoking Popes and Sass Dragons, the band's latest LP Future Ways is due on 11/30 and you can stream it in full for the first time below. Order yours at the label, reccommended.
So far no NYC shows scheduled for TF, but the Chicago band has a couple scheduled in their native Midwest. Check out a list of tour dates, that stream and a video below.

LA band Joyce Manor, who we just mentioned are playing Generation Records on Record Store Day, released their sophomore LP, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, this week (4/17) via Asian Man Records and kicked off a tour with folk punk outfit Andrew Jackson Jihad and Treasure Fleet the same day. That tour comes to NYC on Friday (4/20) at Knitting Factory for two shows. The early show is already sold out but tickets for the late show are still available, and the Saturday RSD show is free. After that tour ends, Joyce Manor will do a quick west coast run with Touche Amore before playing Chaos in Tejas. All dates are listed below.
Like we saw Cloud Nothings do earlier this year, Joyce Manor are blurring the lines between '90s emo and indie rock on both this year's Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired and their 2011 self titled debut. The band approaches Jawbreaker-like emo with an Archers of Loaf styled lo-fi delivery and production. Only two songs on the 9-song album break the two-minute mark (the whole thing is just above 13 minutes) eschewing the time-wasting embellishments that have come to accompany "emo" as the word grew more and more dreadful. Instead, we're given quick blasts of catchy, stripped down, no-frills punk, or dare I say, pop punk. Stream the new album in full at Spinner and stream the track, "Violent Inside," below. The album artwork and tracklist are also below.
