As mentioned, Philadelphia's Purling Hiss will release their new album, Weirdon, via Drag City on September. If you like "classic"-style indie rock, with fuzzy guitars and big hooks, this may well float your boat. Since we last posted, there's now actual music from it to check out and you can stream two very catchy tracks off the LP below.

Purling Hiss' tour starts later this month and has them opening a few shows for J Mascis and then joining up with Meatbodies. Those dates include CMJ, including a show at Baby's All Right on October 24 with OBN IIIs, Hunters, Meatbodies, Happyness, and Calvin Love. No word on advance tickets for that show just yet, and expect more CMJ shows to be announced as we get closer to the fest. The band have also just added West Coast dates to the tour and all are listed, along with song streams, below...
