You may best know Nels Cline as the tall guitar-wizard of Wilco. He also releases music of his own as well as with his newly formed jazz group The Nels Cline 4. They released their debut album Currents, Constellations on April 13 via Blue Note.

They brought the album to life on April 16 with a performance at Le Poisson Rouge. The night started off with an opening set by Marika Hughes and Rashaan Carter and was then followed by The Nels Cline 4.

Our photographer Bryan Lasky was there to capture photos from their performance, all of which can be viewed in the gallery below.

New Zealand singer Kimbra returned in April with new third album Primal Heart, released via Warner Bros.

She celebrated the album’s release a few days early on April 16 with an intimate performance at Rough Trade NYC.

Our photographer Dutch Doscher was there to capture shots from her performance, all of which you can find posted in the gallery below.

Baltimore duo Ed Schrader’s Music Beat returned in March with new album Riddles, which was released via Carpark Records. Produced by Dan Deacon, it’s their most polished and fully realized record to date. On April 15 they finished up their U.S. tour with a performance in Brooklyn at Baby’s All Right.

This was my first time seeing the duo since they opened for Future Islands at Webster Hall back in 2014. While the songwriting style is still very much in their own world of indie art-rock, there’s definitely a more polished nature to these new songs that definitely works well in their favor. The previous time I saw them, Schrader would sing while also beating the hell out of a drum while Devlin Rice handled the heavy basslines. This time around Schrader went full-on frontman just managing the vocals as Rice took care of the bass as well as the backing tracks.

The adoring crowd at Baby’s was with them all the way through their 11-song setlist, with the main set all taken from Riddles, while the encore featured both “Airshow” and “Sermon” from their 2012 debut Jazz Mind, which had the crowd singing back every word, to the humbled delight of Schrader who couldn’t help but be taken over by the moment with a smile. The band had felt home at the old Brooklyn DIY places such as Death By Audio but it looks like they have found a new place to call home with the always welcoming Baby’s All Right.

Longstanding New York City punk rockers Bush Tetras recently returned after ten years with the Take The Fall EP, released via Wharf Cat Records. On April 14 they played a hometown gig at Le Poisson Rouge in support of the new set of songs. The show also featured opening performances from both labelmates Palberta and Pill.

Ty Segall, arguably the hardest working man in rock and roll, returned yet again this year with his new album Freedom’s Goblin, released via Drag City. This album once again sees the tireless Segall working alongside The Freedom Band, consisting of his longtime bandmates Mikal Cronin and Charles Moothart, and rounded out by both Emmett Kelly and Ben Boye.

The Freedom Band has been backing him on the current tour in support of Freedom’s Goblin just like they did when we saw him play Warsaw last year. After playing Brooklyn Steel just the night before, the band made the trek north for a performance at the historic Capitol Theatre.

Tristen at Union Pool (April 14, 2018)

By Joe Saturday, May 15th 2018

We last caught Nashville artist Tristen back in July of 2017 at Berlin and her touring in support of last year’s Sneaker Waves (released via Modern Outsider) found her returning to New York with a sold out LPR Presents headlining show at Union Pool on April 14th. Support came from recent Northern Spy signees Wilder Maker as well as Domino Kirke.

In addition to selections from Sneaker Waves, Tristen’s set also leaned heavily on material from her debut album Charlatans at the Garden Gate. The charismatic frontwoman seemed to cherish the intimacy of the venue, often taking the microphone off of its stand and approaching the edge of the small Union Pool stage to get closer to the audience. At one point, she even jumped down onto the floor to dance with the crowd. To close out the night, she led those in attendance to a singalong for her song “Psychic Vampire” while accompanied by a lone guitar.

Continue below for Tristen’s setlist as well as a photo gallery of Tristen, Wilder Maker, and Domino Kirke.

Meghan Remy has continued to evolve her band U.S. Girls into something new and different with every new release and her latest album In a Poem Unlimited (released via 4AD) may just be her strongest work to date. Collaborating with Toronto jazz/funk collective Cosmic Range, she goes full-on indie dance rock with that enough of a weird edge of it that provides that familiar spark.

The reception to the new album has been justifiably very strong with fans dying to catch this current version of her live show. When her scheduled show at Baby’s All Right on April 13 sold out quickly, they added not one, but two shows at the venue that night, with one coming in earlier in the night, one at a normal time, and another just past midnight. After catching Khruangbin over at Music Hall of Williamsburg, I made my way to Baby’s to catch their third and final performance of the evening.

Khruangbin at Music Hall of Williamsburg (April 13, 2018)

By Will Oliver, May 14th 2018 — with 1 comment

Houston-based trio Khruangbin creates atmospheric Thai funk/surf-soul that is very much in a world of its own. In February they returned with new album Con Todo El Mundo, released via Dead Oceans.

Their tour in support of the great new record brought them to Brooklyn for not one but two sold out shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg. I caught night one of the two-night run on April 13, which featured a remarkable opening performance by jazz-inspired duo The Mattson 2 (find Bauer’s photos from their set here). They were a rather perfect compliment to the sounds of Khruangbin, spiritual cousins if you will.

The Mattson 2 at Music Hall of Williamsburg (April 13, 2018)

By Anthony Bauer, May 14th 2018 — with 1 comment

The Mattson 2 have been unstoppable this past year touring in support of one of 2017’s finest albums, Star Stuff (the collaborative album with Chaz Bundick, aka Chaz Bear, aka Toro y Moi). We we there for their Bowery Ballroom, LPR and Baby’s All Right show, so when we found out they were coming back to New York City, we knew where we were going to be on April 13th. The twin brother duo was opening the night up for Khruangbin, the 3-piece Thai-funk infused band that hails from Texas.

Among the albums released in 2017, The Navigator by Hurray for the Riff Raff (released via ATO Records) and Out of the Storm by Waxahatchee (released via Merge Records) were two of my personal favorites. Much to my delight, the two acts embarked on a co-headlining tour this past April which found them playing the New York area twice. I caught the first of the two shows, which took place at Warsaw in Greenpoint on April 13th. Accompanying Waxahatchee and Hurray for the Riff Raff as the opening act was Spacebomb Records recording artist Bedouine.
