Xylouris White Announce More North American Tour Dates with Kurt Vile & the Violators

Expanding upon their West and Midwest US dates in February supporting Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Xylouris White have just added a slew of shows that will find the duo performing the last two weeks of that month on the East Coast, joining Kurt Vile and the Violators on their North American tour. Featuring legendary Cretan lutenist George Xylouris and drum icon Jim White (Dirty Three, Cat Power, Will Oldham, PJ Harvey), the duo come from different parts of the world and vastly divergent musical backgrounds, but together have forged something surprising and impossible to categorize. Describing their sound as "intense, joyous and rugged," the New York Times also wrote, "Their music starts with old Cretan forms — the brisk, dance-beat sousta and the slow, sung, expressive rizitika — and spreads outward into loose, sympathetic improvisations of uncertain length, the kind of thing that has been at the center of each man’s music for a long time." Xylouris White's debut full-length, Goats, is out on Other Music Recording Co. The just announced dates are below, and you can view their full tour schedule (including their current European tour) listed here

Stream Anna von Hausswolff's New Album on Fact!

Anna von Hausswolff’s new album, The Miraculous, is currently streaming in full over at FACT in advance of its November 13 release. FACT writes, "At times, The Miraculous evokes Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Swans, Black Sabbath and Sunn O))), with siren-like vocals reminiscent of Diamanda Galas. 'It seems like everything I do is both a little bit in and out of fashion,' von Hausswolff says. In fashion or not, The Miraculous is exactly that."

Also, in addition to von Hausswolff's album release show in Brooklyn at Saint Vitus on November 12, she has announced a second New York show in Kingston at BSP on Nov. 15.

Monika Premieres New Music Video

Q Magazine has just premiered the video for "Babyboy," the latest single off Monika's new album, Secret in the Dark. Director Spyros Dahlias tells Q, "I immediately knew that it had to be about a journey, exactly like Monika’s journey from Athens to New York. But, this time why not embarking on a galactic one? We wanted the video to be a sci-fi dream, to feel dark and mysterious like an old James Bond title sequence and have many many Monikas in it. She’s multiplying and trying to find her Babyboy. She never reaches him at the end, but again it’s all about the trip."

Monika performs a one-off UK date in London on November 17 at The Courtyard, Hoxton.

Boogarins Premiere New Video for "6000 Dias"

"This track, like those that surround it on the album, is like stepping into a vivid dream: full of guitar lines that are woozy, hazy things, before growing in strength and building into a vibrant tangle that wraps itself around your ears."

The Guardian: "Why Boogarins Manual Is the One Album You Should Hear This Week"

The Guardian picks Boogarins' new album Manual as the "One Album You Should Hear This Week."

"The Brazilian teenage duo leave their school days of recording in their parents’ basements behind and head off on a strange, beguiling and highly unorthodox journey through psychedelia and tropicalia. Their second album Manual shows how they are maturing well, and at a startling rate."
