Having released lovely new album The Louder I Call, The Faster it Runs last month, Wye Oak kick off their spring tour in Asheville, NC on Wednesday (5/9) and hit NYC's Brooklyn Steel on May 15 which is with Torres. Wye Oak also have West Coast shows in July and more have been added since our last post. For all dates and tickets, head here.
Jarvis Cocker has been working on a new album, his first in almost a decade, and he debuted many songs from it on a European tour of intimate venues. He's currently only got one announced worldwide tour date -- California's Desert Daze festival in October -- and we realize one show is not a tour, but we have to hope he'll soon be announcing more North American shows. That's a long way to go, with a harpist, for just one gig.
Pablo Muñoz, who was born and raised in Norway by his Chilean parents, makes synthy dreampop under the guise of Boy Pablo that recalls Mac DeMarco, Gus Dapperton and Prefab Sprout. His video for "Everytime" became a viral hit, and has racked up over seven million views. Boy Pablo will release a new EP this summer and you can check out new single "Losing You" below. He'll also be visiting North America this summer and coat-to-coast tour dates kick off at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on July 6 (tickets) and he'll then play Manhattan's SOB's on July 7 (tickets). Check out his full itinerary.
Singer-songwriter Amy Rigby released new album The Old Guys back in February, which is another fire record of jangly, heartfelt guitar pop. (Listen below.)

Petal's anticipated new album Magic Gone comes out June 15 via Run For Cover, and after releasing lead single "Better Than You," she released second single "Tightrope" today. It's cut from a similar fuzzy indie rock cloth, but this one's a little more on the softer side. Petal also announced a UK/Europe tour (dates HERE). Before that tour, Petal goes on a co-headlining tour with Camp Cope of North America, with varying support from Sidney Gish, Slingshot Dakota, and Oceanator. That tour hits Philly (twice), Asbury Park, NYC, and more. Dates and more info HERE. Listen to her new song:
