The Babies announce album for 2011 + West coast tour

The Babies if the band of Kevin Morby - who plays bass in Woods, and Cassie Ramone, who lays guitar in Vivian Girls and - as far as we know - is not related to any of the Ramones, although it would be extremely cool if she was. Justin Sullivan, who had played with Cassie in Bossy, joined the duo on drums, and the Babies debuted in March 2009 as a three-piece at Dead Herring, their friendsʼ loft in Brooklyn. Rough, chilled and slightly out of tune as you would expect them to be, The Babies' songs will see their first full length release in 2011 on Shrimper Records. The band will also tour the West Coast in January, where theyʼre temporarily relocating for the winter to write their second record, before going to Europe in the spring of 2011.

Jagjaguwar announced yesterday the forthcoming release of Constant Future, the fifth full-length album by Brooklyn's Parts & Labor, available in the U.S. on March 8 and in the U.K. on March 7. The band, featured on the cover of the 11th NYC issue of The Deli back in 2007 (side picture) can be called a sui generis totem of modern art-punk. Their last release, 2008’s Receivers, saw Parts & Labor blasting off in all directions and creating collage art from hundreds of fan-curated samples.The new album, co-produced by Dave Friedman of Flaming Lips' fame in his Tarbox Road Studios in Casadega, NY, promises to be one of the sonic events of 2011. 
Parts & Labor also took part in a recent fundraiser for The Voice Project organization which raises money to support the peace movement in Uganda. As part of the fundraiser Parts & Labor performed a cover of No Age's "Life Prowler" from their new album Everything in Between.
