Spirit Family Reunion sells out Mercury, tours East Coast

Trends come and go, but some styles seem to always stay relevant. It's true with Spirit Family Reunion, from whom you can expect a classic kind of Americana performed by musicians who know how to pluck a banjo the right way. But what really makes this band stand out is that they don't sound like they're re-inventing anything. When you see them live, the sound is all their own, and the soulful yelps and gospel harmonies in jams like 'I am Following the Sound' and 'On That Day' should convince you of what you've been missing. After a sold out show at Mercury Lounge last Friday (probably also caused by recent coverage on Rolling Stone), the band will be soon leaving for a 2 week East coast tour. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Von Haze celebrates release party at Glasslands on 11.19 (tonight)

I don't see how anybody could posibly try to describe Von Haze's music without using the word "trip" somewhere in the sentence. In their new video for the single "Mother Mountain," band members Travis Caine and Katherine Kin's voices sound high as kites, to the point of challenging his highness Tricky's levels of stonedness. Now back in NYC after on year spent in London, Von Haze plays minimalistic electro-trip-goth that carries a bagagge of dark, decadent influences ranging from Suicide to Joy Division, from Velvet Underground to Dead Can Dance. The Lynchean video looks like a hopeless and bleak celebration of irrationality shot in the middle of nowhere in the US (also referred to by us as "Tea Party-land"), but the band's other material can be more uptempo and slightly less depressing (see "His Love is Fine, streaming below). Von Haze will celebrate the vynil release of their album 'Kar Dee Akk Ake' at Glasslands on 11.19 (tonight).

Weekly Feature: The Everymen release new video + play Sandy benefit at St Vitus 11.16

For 'New Jersey Hardcore', their first full-length album ( which they released early October), The Everymen took a good handful of new steps, from production, an obvious first, to the choices made throughout the record. For a couple of songs, we get to hear Catherine Herrick (the only lady in the band) sing; amidst punk jams, there's also more of the slower, softer side we'd heard on their last EP's closing track 'A Girl Named Lou', with songs like 'Annie' or 'Yellow Sunday Side' [...] This evening (11.16), The Everymen will be playing a benefit alongside The Brooklyn What, The Great American Novel & more at St Vitus in Brooklyn (you can find all the info here). Stream their new video for Coney Island High here & read TM's Q&A with Mike V here.

The London Souls are back from hell: new release in January

Recorded earlier this year, and due out on January 8, 2013, “Here Come the Girls” by The London Souls is not just a sophomore album for the band but a representation of miraculous second chances. Soon after recording the material for the release, lead singer/guitarist Tash Neal was in a nearly fatal hit and run accident, after which he underwent emergency brain surgery, a medically induced coma, and several other surgeries, putting the record’s release on hold. His recovery and survival are extremely fortunate, and he is back rehearsing and preparing to share The London Souls’ new material in 2013. Recently, Guitar World featured track, “City of Light” on their website, offering a taste of the upcoming record’s homage to driving 60s rock ‘n roll energy, bluesy riffs, and gritty call and response vocals. Mind-blowing live shows and solid rock tunes make The London Souls a New York City Alt Rock gem, and their tour in the New Year and album in full are highly anticipated. Check out an old track below. – Meijin Bruttomesso

Weekly Feature: Los Encantados release new track 'ZZZZ'

Los Encantados most likely write their music by forcefully giving each other high fives until the music spontaneously happens. This is just an uninformed guess of course, but with the band's name loosely translating to 'The Enchanted,' it wouldn't surprise me. The septet deals with the same chapters in life shared by most of us, city dwellers. Only when they do it... it's actually uplifting! Listen to their new track 'ZZZZ' below and read Mike Levine's interview with the band here.
