Bad Books return with sophomore album "II" + announce tour

Bad Books, an indie rock collaboration between Brooklyn's Kevin Devine and Manchester Orchestra's Andy Hull, are hitting the road on an east coast tour to promote their sophomore album "II." Devine and Hull alternate in songwriting and lead vocals, giving this album a dynamic edge in pace, voice, and mood. Their lead-off single "Forest Whitaker" (streaming below) starts with a catchy whistling intro that leads to an uplifting pop melody that contrasts uniquely with Hull's dark lyrics. The band is starting their tour in Thompson House Newport, KY on February 13th and making their way east, swinging by New York City to play the Bowery Ballroom on February 20th before making their way south. - Lucy Sherman

This song was added to our SoundCloud playlist of emerging NYC artists here.

NYC Gospel for your holidays - The Lone Bellow

No matter how cynical a bastard you may be, every once in awhile a little Gospel charm is good for the soul. And for those moments, you needn't look further than the country-fried soul of The Lone Bellow. Whether it's the altar call of 'You Never Need Nobody' (check out the video streaming below) or the hollow shouts in 'Two Sides Of Lonely,' (or even a free download of their new Christmas jam, 'A Little Christmas Cheer') the Brooklyn-based trio plugs into an old tradition of Folk Americana, and brings it to life in a way that should help keep you warm this winter. The debut drops this January 22nd off Descendant Records. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

The Indecent releases video, plays Shea Stadium on 01.05

Not much to write about before the holidays, so we'll indulge in a band that's definitely neither "indie" (they are signed to Warner) nor emerging (at least according to our standards), but extremely young and relatively new to the scene. NYC and Canada based The Indecent plays what could be called nu-grunge, but they do it without looking out of date or derivative. And they are so friggin' young it's almost scary. Check out below their new video for the single "Control." They'll be playing Shea Stadium in Brooklyn on January 5 - it will be a packed show. If you are in NJ, they'll be there at The Stanhope House on December 29.
