Jack + Eliza unveil new single "Diamonds," announce debut album + play SXSW

With their airy melodies and beautiful vocal harmonies, Jack + Eliza charmed the crap out of NYC in 2014. They are now (not so) secretly planning to accomplish something similar in Austin later in March, during the 6 days of SXSW's Music Week. The duo just released this new single entitled "Diamonds" from their upcoming debut album "Gentle Warnings" (scheduled to be released in June). They have put together quite a team for this record, produced by Chris Zane, but also featuring the touch of Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor in some tracks like the one we are streaming below.

ONWE release "Hyperbole" LP + tour their way to Austin

ONWE's odd mix of post-punk and psych-pop makes a fine vehicle for David Welles' vindictive lyrical style. Single "Unpaid Internship"—a mini-hit perpetrated by blogs in summer 2014—mocked the dubious self-confidence of Brooklyn hipsters. I suppose they had it coming... ONWE released a new 8 track album entitled "Hyperbole" this past January, and will tour their way to Austin for SXSW in March. Check out single FOMO, streaming below.

Another NYC garage suprgroup: Beech Creeps release debut album + travel to SXSW

Beech Creeps is a new, very noisy NYC based trio featuring members previously active with the likes of Yeasayer, Pterodactyl, People Get Ready and Ex Models among otheres (wow!). Their music has the immediacy of garage rock but sports a sound that's more tense and explosive, reminiscent at time of Sonic Youth's noise rock. Considering the talent behind the instruments, we highly recommend their upcoming shows, in particular the (self titled) record release party at Union Pool on March 3rd. If you are going to Austin for SXSW you may stumble upon them there...

Parour Tricks sign to Bar / None + play SXSW

We've been following The Parlour Tricks for quite some time (check out this 2011 interview when they were still called Lily and the Parlour Tricks), and admittedly we've had our up and downs with them (last year they didn't appreciate our sarcasm about them premiering a video with the Wall Street Journal). But politics never affect our music appreciation, and this stylish indie pop band has been proving to have  the talent, the song and the commitment to thrive in what's probably the toughest music scene in the world. We are therefore happy to celebrate their recent signing with super-awesome label Bar / None, home - among others - of pop luminaries such as Yo La Tengo, Of Montreal and Alex Chilton. The band was selected to play an officials SXSW show this coming March.
