The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger with Blood Orange
Presented by The Seaport
Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Mull mix breezy melodies, Brazilian rhythms, and French pop for a sound that is immediate and alluring. Sink your teeth into the TGOASTT’s charming debut, The Acoustic Sessions, which was mostly recorded in the couple’s kitchen. Blood Orange (aka Lightspeed Champion, born Devonte Hynes) has written #1 records for Florence and the Machine, Diana Vickers, and The Chemical Brothers. 7pm. South Street Seaport, Pier 17.

Sunday June 26
Sound Bites Series with My Teenage Stride
Presented by The Seaport
Veterans of the NYC indie pop scene, My Teenage Stride remain one of the most tuneful, clever bands in the city. The band’s last album, Ears Like Golden Bats, made many Best of 2007 lists and they followed it up with a string of great singles and EPs. My Teenage Stride is wrapping up work on a new album as we speak. We can’t think of a better way to start this year’s series. 2pm. Shows take place at the Fulton Stall Market, South Street between Beekman and Fulton Streets.

Friday July 1
Lower Dens and Dirty Beaches
Presented by The Seaport
Baltimore’s Lower Dens made a splash last year with their atmospheric debut Twin Hand Movements, at the center of which is singer-songwriter Jana Hunter’s haunting voice. Fuzzy, droney and warm, Lower Dens exude that magic hour vibe. Keeping with the theme, twangy openers Dirty Beaches are like a half-remembered dream infected by an oldies station drifting on the breeze at a desert motel. 7pm. South Street Seaport, Pier 17.

Sunday July 3
Sound Bites Series with The Hairs
Presented by The Seaport
Catchy, scratchy and just a little bit snarky, The Hairs formed in 2010 following the dissolution of much-loved duo Knight School. Though less than a year old, The Hairs have already gained attention from influential music blogs Stereogum and RCRDLBL.com, and have a digital single out through Holiday Records, the label run by The Drums. Look for The Hairs’ proper debut out on Portland’s fine Magic Marker label this May. 2pm. Shows take place at the Fulton Stall Market, South Street between Beekman and Fulton Streets.

Friday July 8
The Wake with guests Weekend
Presented by The Seaport
With brittle, danceable classics like “Of the Matter,” “O Pamela” and “Pale Spectre,” Glasgow’s The Wake helped define the ’80s indiepop sound. Their influence can be heard on today’s crop of pop, from The Radio Dept. to Wild Nothing, and The Drums. San Francisco trio Weekend are a blistering post punk wall of sound, rocket-fueled by volume, effects pedals and feedback. Their album Sports was one of 2011’s most impressive debuts, indebted to the past yet making a confident din all its own. 7pm. South Street Seaport, Pier 17.

Sunday July 10
Sound Bites Series with Pow Wow!
Presented by The Seaport
Named one of the “8 NYC Bands You Need to Hear Right Now” by L Magazine in 2009, Pow Wow! burst on the scene with their big pop hooks and party-friendly sound. The band took much of 2010 off, though, to deal with “real life stuff” and refine their craft. Having done that (whew!), Pow Wow! are back in a big way with their debut album out this summer, reminding us that they’re still a band you need to hear…right now. 2pm. Shows take place at the Fulton Stall Market, South Street between Beekman and Fulton Streets.

Friday July 15
The Radio Dept. with guests Asobi Seksu
Presented by The Seaport
With hushed vocals and dreamy melodies, enigmatic Swedes The Radio Dept. have been bewitching listeners for nearly ten years — never more so than on last year’s Clinging to a Scheme, one of 2010’s most heralded discs. Dreampop duo Asobi Seksu are sometimes jangly, sometimes ethereal, and sometimes very noisy. Sometimes all at the same time. Celebrating their tenth year together, their latest album, Fluorescence, shows no signs of fading. 7pm. South Street Seaport, Pier 17.
