Brooklyn band El Sportivo & The Blooz will release their debut album, Nights & Weekends, next week (2/26) via White Iris, the label that gave us early tastes of Best Coast, Guards and FIDLAR. As the band's name implies, they've got a dusty, bluesy rock sound and we've got the premiere of the album's lead track, "Breaks My Heart," which you can stream below.
The band will play a record release show in NYC on February 27 at Pianos which is also part of the last week of Cascading Slopes and Ludwig Persik's residency there. Rumors and Twin Wave also play and advance tickets are available.
El Sportivo & The Blooz will also play another NYC show at The Gutter on March 9. They've got a couple LA shows this week as well and all tour dates are listed below...
Cascading Slopes at Cameo, 1/31/2013 (via @FreshBread)
Cascading Slopes is a new project from Jacob Graham of The Drums. Unlike his other band, this is 100% synthesiser-based music. His debut album, Towards a Quaker View of Synthesizers, is out soon and "took two years to complete from its inception and was made using strictly voltage-controlled instruments." Jacob has been keeping a synth blog, Mild Slopes, for some time now. While no tracks from the album have been released yet, you can stream a portion of non-LP track, "Other Worlds," below.
The band made their live debut last week (1/31) at Cameo with Leverage Models. If you missed it, New York has a few chances to see them as the'll start a February residency at Pianos on 2/13 that will continue for the two following wednesdays (2/20, 2/27). All three nights also feature Ludwig Persick, and the 2/13 show also has TV Baby and Club Girls. Then the 2/20 show also has The Drowners and King Holiday, and then the final night of the residency has El Sportivo & the Blooz, Rumors and Twin Wave. Advance tickets for all three nights are on sale now.
