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.
Bon Iver at Bonnaroo 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Bon Iver recorded an iTunes session at East West studios which is available exclusively from iTunes starting today. It includes six tracks off 2011's great Bon Iver, Bon Iver and a cover of Bjork's "Who Is It?," which the band has played live many times. You can stream the session's opening track, "Beth/Rest" below.
As mentioned, Bon Iver is touring internationally throughout the summer and fall and will come to NYC on September 19 and 20 at Radio City Music Hall. Both of those shows are now sold out. All Bon Iver dates, including a recently announced European leg, are listed below.
Speaking of Bjork, she's teaming up with the New York Public Library (NYPL) and the Children's Museum of Manhattan to create interactive educational programs for middle school-aged students based on her Biophilia app. Speaking about the program, Bjork said:
"It's not a bookish thing. You cannot learn to make music from a book." "I love books; they're like the best ever," she added. "There are things you can only learn from books, but it's also important to introduce the physical aspects. So for me, it was very important to make, somehow, music education that was physical." (via NY Daily News)Both Bon Iver and Bjork are set to play Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway this summer (Aug 7-11) with The Stone Roses, Refused, The Afghan Whigs, Bob Mould (performing Copper Blue), Chromatics, Cloud Nothings, John Maus, Purity Ring, Saint Etienne, SBTRKT, Screaming Females, St. Vincent, and more. Full list below.
Way Out West (Aug 9-11) in Gothenberg, Sweden features many of the same bands as Oya like Bon Iver, Refused, Afghan Whigs, St. Vincent, Purity Ring, John Maus, and Bob Mould in addition to Blur, Wilco, I Break Horses, Hot Chip, The War On Drugs, Mark Lanegan Band, Adolescents, Swans, and more. Check out the spotify playlist. The full lineup is listed below.
As mentioned, the reunited Mazzy Star is set to play both of those European festivals. Full lineups and the Bon Iver dates and song, below...
