We’re still waiting on a new Arcade Fire record, but that wait is a little easier when you’re getting some new music from one of its members. Sam Patch is the project of Arcade Fire bassist Tim Kingsbury, who released his debut album Yeah You, and I last month via his own label, Dep Records.

On March 10 he played a late night show at Mercury Lounge, taking the stage at midnight. He played all eight of the tracks from the album, bouncy synth-led rockers that had a bit of an 80 sound mixed with a few Arcade Fire influences, especially considering that he was backed up by a band that also included Arcade Fire’s Jeremy Gara on the drums. They also opened the show with a cover of Bob Nolan’s “Cool Water,” to help expand the setlist.

On March 10 Spanish garage rockers The Parrots came all the way from Madrid to make their NYC live debut. The show was originally going to go down at Shea Stadium, but had to be moved to Sunnyvale do to Shea Stadium dealing with issues from the authorities, which has forced them to temporarily shut down.

But the show must go on, and The Parrots played their first show to a very young and very wild audience. Their 12-song setlist was mainly taken from their debut album Los Niños Sin Miedo which they released last year via PIAS. There’s always something great about seeing a band play a dirty, sweaty show at a DIY venue like Sunnyvale, where nothing else matters but the band, the crowd, and their shared connection.

Find their setlist posted below, along with a gallery of photos from their performance.

I still remember discovering a curiously named song titled “You! Me! Dancing!” ten years ago by a band by the name of Los Campesinos!. It immediately caught my attention and had me hooked, following their every move. The Welsh band had this crazy kinetic energy to them that was hard not to be totally enthralled and addicted to.

From 2008-2011 they were rather unstoppable, impressively releasing four acclaimed albums over the span of three years. Looking back on it, it’s quite a stunning feat. They’ve slowed down in recent years, only releasing two albums since: No Blues in 2013, and their new album Sick Scenes, which was released on February 24 via Wichita Records (who have released all of their records).

BNNY RBBT – “Bombs”

By Will Oliver, March 21st 2017 Electronic Listen Stream

A few weeks ago we shared with you a mysterious artist by the name of BNNY RBBT who was found within the depths of an old lost videotape, with the only lingering footage of his legend left on some forgotten VHS tapes. We previous shared the first shared song, “Big World,” but today we get another some from his lost legend.

What begins with a creep “Donnie Darko”-esque voice over, some turns into the already somewhat signature sound of BNNY RBBT that we first heard on “Big World.” There’s more of a electronic influence and kick here combined with that dreamy feeling of nostalgia. It’s another lost treasure that I’m glad has remerged to the surface.

Take a listen to “Bombs” below and stayed tuned for more on BNNY RBBT as it comes to us.

It’s been a long six years since the last time that Swedish dream-poppers The Radio Dept. came to play for us in New York. But with the release of their new album Running Out of Love (via Labrador Records) last year, this finally meant that they’d tour again, finally returning to us. I had missed my chances at seeing them perform before, but I wasn’t going to let them slip by without seeing them this time around.

Jesca Hoop released her new, Blake Mills produced album, Memories Are Now on February 10 via Sub Pop. She’s currently on tour in support of the new record, which included a stop in at Mercury Lounge in Manhattan on March 8.

She played a good chunk of material from the new album and also mixed in a fair share of old favorites as well. Support came from Pittsburgh singer-songwriter Brooke Annibale.

Greta Morgan had a busy 2016, releasing a new Springtime Carnivore album Midnight Room (via Autumn Tone Records), as well as a punk covers album that she co-released with Katy Goodman of La Sera, Take It, It’s Yours (released via Polyvinyl Records).

Last year Springtime Carnivore and La Sera toured together (we caught a matinee set of theirs last October at Baby’s All Right), which conveniently allowed for the duo to play some of their covers together.
