Springfield, MO’s Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin have a put together a special release to celebrate their 10 year existence. After releasing three LPs, they were bound to have some extra material that never made it to the record stores. Those songs will now be getting their time in the spotlight with the release of Tape Club, a 26-song double album that brings you best of the SSLYBY archives. It will be available October 18th on limited edition 180-gram maroon 2xLP, CD, and digital formats via Polyvinyl, but can already stream it on the band’s bandcamp page now. The album’s title is a direct reference to a subscription service the band started in late 2005 to raise money for tour while copies of their debut Broom; things have come full circle! The next 10 years for SSLYBY can only go up from here!
Four years after the release of their second full length, Robbers on High Street have a new album in the works with a reworked lineup, and they’re hitting the road to celebrate both.

People don’t always think very much of New Jersey, especially when its standout celebrities right now are the cast of Jersey Shore. Real Estate proved that not all that comes out of the Garden State is terrible with their first self-titled album released in 2009. Can they keep it up? We’ll find out on on Tuesday October 18th, 2011 when they release the follow-up, Days, which was recorded in Upstate New York through the late winter/spring of 2011 with Kevin McMahon.
For now, we know the album is made up of nine new recordings and a revisit of last year’s standalone single “Out of Tune.” You can listen to the first single off the record, “It’s Real,” HERE. It’s due out on September 27th in the US and October 10th in the UK. In the meantime, the band is touring around the US and Canada for the rest of July so check below to see if they’re headed near you!
After earning practically universal critical adoration for his first album, Psychic Chasms, Neon Indian mastermind Alan Palomo is finally ready his second offering.
Neon Indian’s sophomore album, Era Extrana, will be released September 13th. Here’s a video for the song “Heart: Decay” off of the upcoming LP.
While understandably pressed for time due to performing at massive festivals like South by Southwest and Bonnaroo and touring with the Flaming Lips, Phoenix, and Massive Attack, fans can’t help but be antsy for new material.
To create the newa lbum, Palomo holed up in an efficiency apartment in Finland and cobbled it together from journal entries he made during the time. The album has Neon Indian treading darker waters and exploring a little more somber territory.
Following the album release is a full tour, which has Neon Indian traversing the nation. You can see the new material live here:

The Joy Formidable scored a very high honor when Foo Fighters’ front man Dave Grohl asked them to tour along side the heavy rock giants for a slew of East Coast tours.
The two bands will provide quite the contrast to audiences when they take the stage. While the Foo Fighters are touring behind their newest full-length, Joy Formidable is focusing more on the work of others with their new EP Roarities which features covers from The Naked and Famous and Innerparty as well as a couple live tracks.
The band also released their newest video, for the song “A Heavy Abacus” which you can see right here.

One of our brand new favorites, Casey Shea, is heading to the Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night, Friday, August 19th. What is to be one hell-of-a-show, Shea will be performing on the line up with Tally Hall and April Smith and the Great Picture Show.
A little bit of southern charm, the New York by way of New Orleans singer-songwriter is set to release his third record, In Your Head, on Family Records, October 11th.
Influenced by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, BEck, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, you know Shea has a good musical head on his shoulders.
Being no stranger to the music world, Shea has been a member of several bands, pop, rock and soul alike, bringing his sound on the road.
