Ok forget about what I said last week about March, can we fast forward to April instead? Will winter ever really end? Is this real life? Here are five reasons to at least get out of bed this weekend.
5) Reignwolf, Them Fangs at Baby’s All Right
Seattle rockers Reignwolf just released their debut album, Hear Me Out, and if you like your rock to have some blues with a smattering of chunky desert guitar sounds, then give them a shot. The band also play at Mercury Lounge on Saturday, but since that show is sold out already, we’ll focus on the show at Baby’s All Right since you can still get tickets at the time of writing. Sunday 7:30pm
4) Her’s, Spencer at Music Hall of Williamsburg
Liverpudlian duo Her’s make a kind of bedroom-dream-pop mix that sounds like it would exist on a label that was an equal mix of Burger Records and Kanine Records. The songs on Invitation to Her’s are melodic, breezy and playful. Saturday 8pm
3) Nothing, Tony Molina, Candy at Brooklyn Bazaar
We’ve always liked Nothing at FreeWilliamsburg and the band have just released a b-sides/covers/rarities album called Spirit of the Stairs (side note – the phrase l’esprit de l’escalier is perhaps the best thing the French have given to the world outside of pastry). The “single”, for want of a better word, of the album is a cover of Grouper‘s Heavy Water/I’d Rather Be Sleeping, though the song that jumped out at me from the tracklist is a over of Vapour Trail by Oxford’s shoegaze legends Ride. Thursday 8pm
2) Dusted, Ellis, Lila, Tallies Coney Island Baby
You may recognise Dusted‘s Brian Borcherd as one of the founders of Holy Fuck, but you may not recognise anything else if that’s all you know of his discography. As Dusted, Borcherd has released two LPs, the most recent being 2018’s excellent Blackout Summer, which mixed sombre acoustic-driven songs with layered effects and driving beats. Whatever you do, don’t miss openers Tallies who just released their gorgeous dreampop debut album (self-titled) on Kanine Records. Dusted also play a 5:15pm set on Friday at Pianos by the way. Thursday 7pm
1) Hilary Woods, Fielded, Kinlaw at The Park Church Co-Op
Dublin artist Hilary Woods released her debut solo album, Colt, on Sacred Bones, and it’s a beautifully soothing record. Awash with layers of piano and synth, it should sound rather lovely at The Park Church Co-Op. I hadn’t realised that Woods was the bassist in JJ72, an indie-rock trio who had a couple of decent records in 2000 and 2005 (I saw them opening a show in Oxford in the early 00s and it’s bugging me that I can’t quite place it, The Bluetones, perhaps). Friday 7pm
