The Hold Steady @ McCarren Pool (more by Kyle Reinford)
"While the UK pop scene suffers from a surfeit of homogenous guitar rock, American music is enjoying a golden moment. Literary bands, with songs that revel in intricate language, complex narratives and cinematic plot twists, are on the rise. So if you are looking for an alternative to identikit indie, the wait is over..."The Observer goes on to name The Hold Steady, Vampire Weekend, Silver Jews, The Mountain Goats and Fleet Foxes as fine examples of American lyrics. Tickets are now on sale for the next Fleet Foxes show in NYC.
[says The Observer]
Fleet Foxes last show in NYC was on the TV.

This post is the last in a three-part series on a free show that happened at Central Park Summerstage in NYC on June 14th. It started with Vampire Weekend. Then came Kid Sister. And now the very-first opener of that show: Born Ruffians.
This post is also a reminder that this Saturday's free show at the very same location features none other than Vieux Farka Toure. Last year the son of the legendary Ali Farka played a show outside Grace Plaza on 6th Ave and 43rd Street at 12:30 in the afternoon, so he's moving up in the world. Exact details:

Central Park SummerStage
West Africa shines in this dynamic line-up featuring superstars from Mali, Senegal and Nigeria.
...But when we hop on the phone Adele sounds pretty chipper for someone who's at the tail end of a grueling U.S. tour promoting 19, her stunning debut. She's been keeping busy off stage as well, apartment hunting in Williamsburg (where she plans to pen her sophomore follow-up) and sitting in the rain in Central Park to check out Vampire Weekend's free performance (according to Adele, people in the crowd started stripping). That's a lot of running around for a girl who is quick to admit that she doesn't even like walking all that much. (Admittedly, her single "Chasing Pavement" tells a much different story.MCC saw Adele at Highline Ballroom and wants to be her friend. The tiny photo from that show in this post is from here. Video of Adele on the Today show below....

As expected, people started lining up early for the free Vampire Weekend show in Central Park on Saturday afternoon (June 14, 2008). As also expected, there was rain. Neither of those factors scared a significant amount of people away though. Vampire Weekend played to an extremely enthusiastic and packed house. Born Ruffians opened the 4 pm show. Then it rained. Then came Kid Sister. Vampire Weekend was last. Andrew W.K. hyped up the crowd between acts and later joined Vampire Weekend on stage on some songs including a cover of Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More". A video of that cover and more pictures of VW, WK, and the wet crowd, below...

RIP Charlton Heston (even if he liked shooting things so much). They say he was nice. Stars attended his LA funeral. Fox News called Michael Moore the "most sanctimonious sack of feces on the planet". Charlton Heston dominates Michael Moore's "link of the week".

High Places @ Market Hotel, Brooklyn, NY (mercurialn)
For rock bands this is a great time to be weird and independent in Brooklyn. After years in which the sound of New York was defined by various shades of retro monochrome -- the new wave minimalism of the Strokes, the disco-punk of the Rapture and LCD Soundsystem, the moody Anglophilia of Interpol -- a new generation is making music that is indefinably eclectic and complex, and finding acclaim around the world.

Wilco was just awesome on Saturday Night Live.
Vampire Weekend continue to blow up - see above SPIN magazine cover, and watch them as the musical guest on SNL next week.

I was up all night fixing stuff because of a server and software upgrade. Things will probably still not be totally normal for a little while. Let me know if you get any weird errors. Very tired...What else?
Death Cab for Cutie's Chris Walla also releases his much-anticipated solo album, Field Manual. Other albums I can strongly recommend is the Helio Sequence's excellent Keep Your Eyes Open, Ida's Lovers Prayers, Jeffrey Lewis's 12 Crass Songs, Thao's We Brave Bee Stings and All, and Xiu Xiu's Women As Lovers
Interesting reissues include a two-disc deluxe remastered edition of Beck's Odelay along with six remastered Van Morrison albums, each with bonus tracks.
What new releases you picking up this week? What can you recommend? Have I left anything worthwhile off the list?
