DOWNLOAD: Wildbirds & Peacedrums - There is No Light (MP3)
Improbable recipients of the prestigious Jazz In Sweden 2008 prize, Mariam and Andreas [the two members of Wildbirds & Peacedrums] used their winnings to record at the Soundtrack Of Our Lives-owned Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg. Vocals and drums were brilliantly recorded live to tape, and the spontaneity of the resulting album captures the intense bond between the couple, while expanding their sonic palette to include steel drum, piano, xylophone, marimba, Rhodes and more. "We tried to deconstruct the roles we have as a drummer/singer, so Mariam plays the same number of instruments as me," Andreas explains.The Swedish group's second album, The Snake, just came out August 25th on Leaf Label. MP3 above. Video below.
Wildbirds & Peacedrums will be playing a trio of NYC gigs this September. The first is a "Wordless Music" show with Deerhoof at LPR on September 15th. The other two are a pair of opening dates for Fanfarlo at the Bowery Ballroom and the Bell House on September 21st and 22nd, respectively.
All tour dates with their Black Cab Session and other videos below...
Junior Boys @ Webster Hall - July 23, 2009 (sneuffer)
As previously posted, The King Khan & BBQ Show are playing two shows in NYC on October. They'll be at Bowery Ballroom on the 30th, and at The Bell House in Brooklyn one day later (Halloween). Dum Dum Girls, who last played their first and only show in NYC during the Woodsist Festival (and have since signed to Sub Pop) will open both dates.
The Bell House show is an early one - it'll be over by 10:30 so that doors can open for the late show which it can now be revealed will be a performance by the Junior Boys (who were last here when they played a rescheduled date at Webster Hall in July). Tickets for the late show will be on sale soon. Tickets for the early show are still on sale now (and no tickets for Bowery yet).
By the way, Dungen and Woods play the Bell House this Friday night (8/14). $15 tickets are still on sale, and you can get in (capacity permitting) for $10 at the door with your stub from the Animal Collective show happening in Prospect Park the same evening. All JB dates below...

Titus Andronicus @ Bowery Ballroom (more by Leia Jospe)
Titus Andronicus will be playing the Colt 45/Vice Magazine party at Glasslands on Thursday, July 9th (tonight). The band's MySpace reveals that The So-So Glos will also be appearing (though the show flyer, below, only lists a "special guest"). The show is free with RSVP, though there's limited capacity.
The So So Glos are also playing a show on Friday, July 10th at Southpaw with Those Darlins who play a show with Heavy Trash and Shilpa Ray at Mercury Lounge tonight. All dates below.
Titus is also scheduled to play July 10th with Real Estate at the first of the Whitney Museum's four July rock shows. That's still happening -- the concert is free with admittance to the museum which is free from 6-9pm on Fridays - so it's a free show, but first come, first served.
The MySpace schedule for Real Estate, who just played in Brooklyn on July 4th, lists an additional NYC date for San Francisco's Fresh & Onlys. That show, the Mexican Summer/Insound party at Cameo Gallery on July 16th,
can be added is not actually part of the Fresh & Onlys extensive upcoming schedule. The show is happening, but the Fresh & Onlys aren't playing it. Actually on the bill are Woods and Golden Triangle.

The Woodsist/Captured Tracks Festival's Day One (7/3) was moved inside the Market Hotel. Thankfully, the weather held out for its second, 4th of July lineup, which went off as planned in the grassy, rock-filled lot of 979 Broadway Backyard.
I arrived just as Real Estate was going on, and the New Jersey band nearly stole the show with dreamy rock that seemed to be made for a sunny afternoon. The Beets held down their set with a casualness befitting a park lodge show (kind of what the fest was on a slightly bigger scale). The guys gave new meaning to the word "ramshackle" as things seemed to be toppling over continually onstage.
German Measles played a set before I got there. Bill caught them and said they "aren't actually that bad... But they're also not very good. And that kind of seems to be the point. Shambolic is an understatement, like 'why rehearse when we can just play shows?"
The Great Excape did a set of Jersey-style pop-punk that included their own theme song, several politically-themed tunes (a nice touch) and a cover of "Summertime Blues." Ganglians brought one of the day's only keyboards, and burst with a flurry of reverb and overdrive.
Brilliant Colors started out with straight-ahead noise punk, with a bit of a melody void left by their super-reverbed vocals (maybe a theme of the night) and washed-out guitar. When the bass stepped up its riffs a few songs in, the band immediately sounded twice as catchy. The Fresh and Onlys took that bass-forward momentum and went with it. Their bassist pounded the notes in between and then some. As a result, the group had one of the most complete sounds of the night (with a tambourine and three-part harmonies rounding it out). They dedicated their last song to the member of Tyvek in the hospital (the reason for that band's cancellation). Hopefully their situation turns out better.
Dum Dum Girls had to be one of the night's cleanest sounding groups. The band relied heavily on singer Dee Dee's vocals, which harmonized with drummer Frankie Rose on their songs' many hooks.
The atmospheric rock of Woods definitely got jammier as it progressed. As Bill Pearis pointed out, the group's fourth member, who sat on the floor twiddling effects and singing into a microphone strapped to his face, was a bit strange considering the rest of the guys were dressed proper enough for church. Whatever you have to do to make it sound good I suppose.
Kurt Vile & the Violators roared into the night as the sun finally went down. Vile and Vivian Girls (who, as one commenter pointed out, "played with a great intensity") more than warmed up the crowd for Thee Oh Sees, who capped the night (for some) with an unstoppable set. Frontman John Dwyer was literally foaming at the mouth as a streak of white drool smeared across his face for part of the set. Thee Oh Sees' strange, repetition-laced anthems are amazing for shaking and rattling, as the crowd proved. The band even got talked into playing an encore before sending everyone into the night.

The Mayfair Set
"Festival is a very misleading term to describe this showcase because this wasn't really a festival. There were a lot of bands playing which is a prerequisite for a festival, but beyond that there wasn't a whole hell of a lot that qualified this as a festival. It was basically just a really kick-ass show that lasted for two days. There was rain on Friday, and the show was moved indoors. I discovered this after circling the block several times. I could hear the music, and I could tell something was definitely going on but for the life of me I could not find the fucking place. Finally, I stopped two people who looked like they would definitely know where the show was and when I asked them "Do you know where the show is?" they responded by saying "Show? What show?" and then I tried again, this time clearing my throat before speaking, "I am looking for the Woodsist/Captured Tracks Fest-i-val. Would you happen to know where it is located?" and then the bro gave me an approving nod and explained to me that the show was going on above a grocery store called Mr. Kiwi's and that the way to get there is to slip through the door on the side. Many thanks to that dude because I found what I was looking for shortly there after." [no gift for the gab]Considering all the rain we've been having, it's amazing how nice it ended up being over Fourth of July weekend. Saturday's show in Battery Park, as well as the 2nd day of the Woodsist/Captured Tracks Fest at 979 Broadway Backyard had beautiful weather. Friday's show at South Street Seaport was completely dry and breezy as well. Unfortunately though, there was some rain earlier on Friday (6/3), and so the Woodsist Fest organizers were forced to make a decision, and that decision was to move the day's festivities to Market Hotel... the very, very hot Market Hotel.
Bands on the bill for that first day were Blank Dogs, Psychedelic Horseshit, caUSE co-MOTION!, the Mayfair Set, Gary War, Little Girls, Kid Romance, Beachniks, and the Gutsies. What were the highlights?
As Bill pointed out, the Mayfair Set is "a collaboration with Blank Dogs (and Captured Tracks domo) Mike Sniper" and Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls, who, as I just pointed out, is actually Kristin Gundred from Grand Ole Party. Live it was Kristin, Mike, JB from Crystal Stilts, Jeremy from Woods, and Jarvis Taveniere from Woods, Meneguar & other bands. For Mike and Kristin, it was the first of two bands they debuted at the fest over the weekend. On Saturday it was Dum Dum Girls. Both new bands were filled out by members of other bands (Dum Dum Girls had a Crystal Stilt and a Crocodile).

"...it has been damn near impossible to keep up with [Blank Dog] Mike Sniper's Captured Tracks label, who have hit the ground running with eight releases since the start of the year and many more slated for the near future. Captured Tracks is, to put it plainly, an outlet for Mr. Sniper to release records by bands he loves. In his mind it is "not a boutique label, " and by that he means that the releases are not meant to become instant eBay collectables, and will remain in print as long as there are people buying them. Some will have limited edition versions with alternate artwork or bonuses, but even these editions are easily and widely available. Affordable, available and well made, Captured Tracks is the populist record label. " [Agit Reader]The previously announced Brooklyn Festival got much, much more interesting...
The Feelies @ Battery Park (more by Jason Bergman)
Feelies have added a 3rd Maxwell's show to the two that were already planned for the venue on July 3rd and 4th. The additional gig will happen at Maxwell's on Thursday, July 2nd. Tickets to that show are on sale. Tickets to July 4th gig are still available too. July 3rd is sold out.
That Whitney series had a "TBA" listed for the Friday, July 24th show with YellowFever. The "TBA" band will in fact be Woods who fit in perfectly with rest of the bands playing the museum that month... Vivian Girls, Titus Andronicus, etc..
Other upcoming Woods shows include July 15th at the Bowery Ballroom with WAVVES', and the Woodsist/Captured Tracks Fest happening July 3rd and 4th at 979 Broadway Backyard in Brooklyn. Woods member Jeremy Earl is also head of the Woodsist label (whose roster includes WAVVES).
Woods will also be at the Saturday, June 13th Northside Fest show at The Shank. That Woodsist-friendly bill also includes Kurt Vile (and the Violators), who was on the label and recently signed to Matador, Grooms (ex-Muggabears) (also playing the Whitney), Pygmy Shrews and Blues Control.
Woods' own new full-length, Songs of Shame, was co-released in April by Woodsist and Shrimper Records.
Blues Control's 2007 disc Puff came out on Woodsist; their new LP, Local Flavor, is out July 14th on Siltbreeze. The record includes a guest contribution by Kurt Vile on trumpet and acoustic guitar. And the Northside Shank show isn't the only Vile/Blues Control show coming up. The two bands will share a NYC bill twice in August - at Cake Shop and Silent Barn.

"On Sunday night at Bowery Ballroom, The Vaselines essentially played every song they ever wrote, including 2 new songs that sounded like they could have been written back in the late 80s along with the others. Opening the set with the energetically cheerful "Son of a Gun," they made it clear that they still had it after all these years. With reunion concerts it's very difficult to be anything but skeptical as a fan, especially with a band who has barely played together in almost 20 years. A couple songs later, a broken bike horn did little to subtract from the quirky poppy excellence of "Molly's Lips." Throughout the set the playful stage banter of Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee added an extra element of fun to the night. It's rare to see such a genuinely clever dialogue on stage anymore." [NY Press]The Vaselines' 2nd of two NYC shows is tonight (5/18) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. More pictures from last night's Bowery Ballroom show, below...

Thee Oh Sees
The post-SXSW music flood has yet to show relief and this week might actually be more jam-packed with goodness than last. Where to start?
Kings of San Francisco's fertile garage rock scene, Thee Oh Sees are back in town for two shows this weekend in what I'd have to call unlikely venues for the band. Thee Oh Sees are not exactly fond of playing on stages, as I've only ever seen them set up on the floor, so I'm not sure how they're going to handle it at The Bell House (4/4) and Mercury Lounge (4/5). Regardless, if they're anywhere near as good as they were at the Todd P/Woodsist party during SXSW it'll be a great time. John Dwyer is an intense frontman, flinging his guitars around and likes to get very intimate with his microphone for maximum in-the-red levels. Speaking of, In the Red is releasing Thee Oh Sees' great new album, Help, and while it's not in shops yet, it should be available at the merch table this weekend. Go see them.
Michigan's Tyvek are playing three shows this week, starting tonight (3/31) at Cake Shop. There is certainly no shortage of this kind of low fidelity, high attitude punk being made right now, but these guys do it better than most I think. The band, who keep changing the spelling of their name (Their Myspace currently has it as "Tyvjk"), are due to drop their debut full-length on Siltbreeze any minute now, so maybe they'll will be selling it at these gigs.
Tonight's show at Cake Shop is for the venue's "World's Birthday Party" parties held on the last day of each month. Tonight is curated by Peggy of Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Chuk Reutter of Gold Dust who will be playing their last-ever show tonight. Also on the bill: San Francisco's gothy New Thrill Parade (they sound more than a little like The Birthday Party), and two ca-USE co-MOTION offshoots (Extreme Violence and The German Measles). If your birthday is in March, it's free entry plus two drink ticket and a "gift" and cake. All others pay $7. Tomorrow (4/1) Tyvek play Death by Audio with local folkies Woods (whose new album, Songs of Shame is pretty darn good) and then on Thursday (4/2) opening for Asobi Seksu at Bowery Ballroom.
Also on that Asobi Seksu bill are San Diego scuzz-rockers Crocodiles who put out a JAMC-loving single "Neon Jesus" last year and will release their debut album on April 28th via Fat Possum. Two songs from that album (as well as "Neon Jesus") are available over at RCRD LBL and show they also seem to like Spacemen 3 a lot too. I missed them at SXSW so I can't say whether they're good as a live band or not (editor's note: I liked what little I saw of them), but I'm guessing it's gonna be two guys, a drum machine and a truckload of feedback and reverb (editor's note: YES!). Which is okay by me. In addition to the BB show, Crocodiles also play Pianos on Saturday night (4/4) with the aforementioned New Thrill Parade and L.A.'s pummeling duo Tweak Bird (who BB most recently caught at SXSW).
A few more shows to mention (and all tour dates below):

Nathan Williams's starter Flock of Seagulls haircut was silly with sweat, slapping at his face and neck as he jerked around on the tiny stage at Less Artists More Condos in the West Village on Saturday night. But after nearly every song he stopped for a look in the virtual mirror. Not at the hair, but at less likely concerns. Was his guitar tuned properly? (It was not.) Could he hit the notes the next song required? (Define hit. And notes.) Musing about whether he could pull off a particular number, he demurred -- "No. I can't. Sorry." -- and then dove in anyway.The Wavvves album really is terrific. Wavves (the artist whose album has one more "v" than his name) also played a show with almost the exact same lineup (Woods/Nodzzz/Blank Dogs) one day earlier at Market Hotel and one day later (yesterday) at Underground Lounge (where Blank Dogs reportedly cancelled).
Slickness isn't really a concern for Mr. Williams, a one-man band from San Diego who records as Wavves, but crispness is. His terrific second album, "Wavvves" (Fat Possum), teems with scrappy, energetic, summery chunks of noisy pop: smart-aleckyness via Weezer, cooing via the Beach Boys, all masked by digital effects and a thick garage-rock haze. (The album is to be released this week on iTunes and next month on CD.) [NYTIMES]
Wavves will reportedly be back in NYC at the end of March.
Nodzzz went on first at Less Artists More Condos. Toby could't get through the door in time, but he did get lots of pics of the rest of the show. More of them below...

Vivian Girls were the last-minute/secret early-opener. More pictures from Friday night's show below...
"The art made by Baltimore artist Dan Deacon is about community and how to organize and inspire it. From founding a now well-known art collective (Wham City), to organizing and running an annually sold-out DIY music festival (Whartscape), to conceiving, planning and curating a massive 60 person/30 band tour (Baltimore Round Robin Tour), it's clear to see that community and bringing people together is the major theme of his work. Bromst is the embodiment of that way of thinking.Dan Deacon plays a $3.00 show in Brooklyn on January 30th and the "Brooklyn vs. Baltimore Marathon" now also has Woods and Blank Dogs on the bill (previously their spots were marked "special guest"). The location is
For the last three years Dan Deacon has been working on Bromst. Fusing together the growing intensity of his live performances with his background in electro-acoustic composition, the outcome is a collection of pieces that are intense and epic and at the same time down to earth and welcoming. Bromst embodies the same energy and excitement as Spiderman of the Rings, however the craftsmanship and composition on Bromst have a wider scope and richer palette.
Unlike the completely electronic Spiderman of the Rings, the instrumentation on Bromst is a mixture of acoustic instruments, mechanical instruments, samples and electronics. The player piano, marimba, glockenspiel, vibraphone, live drums, winds and brass give Bromst a much richer tone than his previous work. The intricate and complex parts, skillfully executed by the performers, are woven together into a rich, dense, noisy dance pop that has become Dan Deacon's signature sound." [PR]
Dan Deacon will also play Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan on May 16th with Double Dagger and Teeth Mountain. The date is presumably part of a bigger tour that is still TBA. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday at noon.
Bromst will be released on March 24, 2009 by Carpak Records. Listen to the track "Get Older" at Imeem. Full tracklist below.
Even sooner (Jan 27 via Carpark), you can get your hands on a Dan Deacon / Adventure split 7". The cover of that one is a composite image of Dan Deacon and Benny Adventure. It's got 4 tracks. They are listed below.
Dan also appears on a new Free Yr Radio benefit compilation that is exclusive to Insound. Other bands on the album include !!!, Chairlift, Yeasayer, White Williams, No Age, Mudhoney, King Khan, The Secret Machines, The Walkmen, Tokyo Police Club and Jamie Lidell. Exact songs are also listed below.
Last but not least, Dan is/was looking for interns who can transcribe sheet music...
I'm preparing the scores for 15 of my compositions that are being printed in early March. I'm already insanely busy so I'm seeking 2 or 3 interns to help me with the process. It pays $15 an hour and should be around 20 hours total. I need people to help clean up the MIDI files and transcribe parts from the program Reason and bring them into the program Sibelius.UPDATE: All known tour dates HERE (including a second one at Danbro).
