Longstanding Boston indie rockers Buffalo Tom are back at it with new album Quiet And Peace (via Schoolkids Records), their first album in seven years. The album features a pretty cover of “Simon & Garfunkel’s classic “The Only Living Boy in New York.”

Tomorrow night they return to New York for a headlining performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg in support of the new record. Opening up the show will be locals Valley Lodge.

Tickets for the show are still available and can be purchased here. You can also find the video for their cover of “The Only Living Boy in New York” posted below.

London producer and singer Kelly Lee Owens released her great self-titled debut album last year via Smalltown Supersound. She came to New York in support of the record last year but we sadly missed that performance.

If you too missed her last stop, you’ll be happy to know that Owens will be back in New York this Friday for a performance at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. Support comes from both Ela Minus and Carmen Villain.

Tickets for the show are still currently on sale but don’t wait too long on scooping them up. We’ll have coverage of the show coming very soon as well.

Colin Macleod is a Scottish singer-songwriter from a remote place known as Isle of Lewis. MacLeod used to release music under the moniker The Boy Who Trapped The Sun or the abbrivated C. MacLeod, but now he goes by his full name which he will release his new album Bloodlines under this May.

Two of the songs that he’s release so far “Kicks In” and “Shake The Wall,” show a confident songwriter who is sure of his abilities with some real songwriting talent and one hell of a voice. There’s always a wealth of great powerful musicians that seem to find their way over from Scottland and Macleod seems to be another voice that deserves to be heard in a big, big way.

He is currently in Austin for a bunch of SXSW performances and will then come here to New York on March 20 for a free performance at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 1).

You can learn a lot about Macleod as both a person an artist from this wonderful video that I have included below, along with the official music video for “Shake The Wall,” along with the flyer for all of his SXSW dates.

Twin Peaks and The Districts were the touring partners that we didn’t know we needed to see together but oh man, does it make sense. Both are two of the brightest young rock bands we have at the moment and both are known for putting on pummeling live performances.

While the tour didn’t come into New York City, there was still an area stop at White Eagle Hall in Jersey City on February 23. This sold out show was packed with the young and feisty audience that you’d come to expect and had the whole place going wild.

Our photographer Dave Scholten was there to capture the action from both performances. Find his shots posted in the gallery below.

Phoebe Bridgers and Soccer Mommy (the project of songwriter Sophie Allison), are two of the most promising young songwriters that we have at the moment. This year saw the two come together for a tour in support of Bridgers terrific 2017 debut album Stranger in the Alps (released via Dead Oceans) as well as Soccer Mommy’s debut album Clean, which was just recently released via Fat Possum.

On February 22 they stopped in for the first of two sold out shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg for a great night of music that also served as a showcase for two of the brightest talents to emerge in the past couple of years, both whose paths are steadily moving forward during what is turning out to be a sort of golden age for female-led projects. With all that’s going on in the world, the timing couldn’t be any better.

Up first was Allison, whose personal songwriting talent works its magic on you rather instantly. Live, her songs are given a bit of added weight and punch thanks to her band. The emotion is still very much there, it’s all just adjusted in a way that strongly holds up in a live environment. Her set included a great solo cover of The Boss’ “I’m on Fire,” as well as a solo performance of her own track “Still Clean,” before the band rejoined her for a set-closing performance of “Scorpio Rising.” This was a brief set, but she will be back very soon headlining both Rough Trade NYC and Elsewhere (Zone One).

The mood was set for Bridgers performance with a darkened stage, illuminated mainly by the white Christmas lights that were tightly wrapped around her mic stand. She gently welcomed us to her set with a heartbreaking performance of “Smoke Signals,” which surely set the mood and tone for the rest of the evening. Only four songs in she dropped the first of many surprises of that evening, bringing out Conor Oberst to perform his vocal part on their debut “Would You Rather.”

Oberst would come back out towards the tail end of the set, along with all of Soccer Mommy, to help perform “Scott Street,” with some oversized black balloons that were thrown out to the crowd for good measure. After performing “You Missed My Heart” while sitting on the floor cross-legged during the encore, Bridgers welcomed both Oberst and Soccer Mommy back out to perform a pretty epic cover of Sheryl Crow’s “If It Makes You Happy,” that had all of the adoring crowd belting it back at them.

Bridgers music has a lot of heavy emotional weight to it, so it was a pleasant surprise to see how often she was able to break out and allow for more grand carefree moments that balanced it out in a celebratory fashion that was certainly most welcome.

Ginger Root – “Call It Home”

By Will Oliver, March 9th 2018 Indie Listen Stream

Ginger Root is Cameron Lew, a film student from Huntington Beach, Calirfornia. He makes chill music that can classify in the early bedroom indie pop/rock of say, Toro y Moi and Mac DeMarco.

We previously shared with you his track “Two Step” from last year and now we are pleased to share his latest single “Call It Home.”

It’s a step-forwarded for Lew, who shows off some pretty impressive vocal range and delights with some undeniably funky and fresh synth ideas that make the track a delight from start to finish.

Enjoy a stream of “Call It Home” below and find the track available to download for whatever price you want on his Bandcamp.

Last year British indie rockers Flyte released their debut album The Loved Ones, which was far and away one of our favorite albums of the year.

After seven long months on the road touring in support of the record, the band took a break at the Isle of Wight in December, where they wrote and produced two completely new songs (which were produced and mixed by longtime friend and collaborator, Burke Reid). This session resulted in “Moon Unit” and “Victory Girls,” the two songs which we are honored to premiere to you today.

“Moon Unit” chugs along with a soothing energy that effortlessly builds up to deliver a chorus that is every bit charming and addictive as all the best Flyte songs are. Its title is a nod to Frank Zappa’s daughter and an ode to the songs their parents would listen to on cassette during long drives.

Then you have “Victory Girls,” a song that showcases the simple, yet efficient use of just their lush vocals and dreamy guitar work providing something that feels completely timeless.

Most impressively, while both efforts have no problem working their magic on a listener fairly instantly, they also have a special growing power that allows them to sound even better with each subsequent listen.

These two songs will surely be showcased when they finally bring their tour to the United States for the first time for both SXSW, as well as long-awaited headlining performances in both Los Angeles and New York (at Mercury Lounge – grab tickets here)

Enjoy the exclusive stream of both songs below as well as their upcoming U.S. tour dates, posted right after.

Flyte U.S. Tour Dates:

Tue, March 13 – Austin, TX – SXSW – Killing Moon & Reverb Nation w/ Metro UK – Seven Grand
Wed, March 14 – Austin, TX – SXSW – Showcase – Central Presbyterian Church
Fri, March 16 – Austin, TX – SXSW – British Music – Latitude
Sat, March 17 – Austin, TX – SXSW – Best Lil’ Big Fest – The Tiniest Bar in Texas
Mon, March 19 – Los Angeles, CA – School Night – Bardot
Wed, March 21 – New York, NY – Mercury Lounge

La Luz will return with new album Floating Features on May 11 via Hardly Art. On February 17 the Los Angeles surf rockers (who formed in Seattle) returned to us in Brooklyn (where we last caught them two years ago) on a snowy night for a headlining performance at Elsewhere as a part of Jonathan Toubin’s Soul Clap & Dance Off. The main room portion of the show also featured an opening set from the equally rocking The Mystery Lights, while Elsewhere’s smaller Zone One space featured performances from both Bodega and Jane Church, whose members joined The Mystery Sets for a song each.
