Also check out the single "Watergun" which was released back in March.

Neighbors' celebrate the release of the August EP June 3rd at Glasslands with Living Days and Dinosaur Bones.  See you there.

Pleased to announce BirdDog @ Northside Fest


PENGUIN PRISON - http://www.myspace.com/penguinprison
Imagine, if you will, Chic produced by James Murphy, collaboration between Prince and The Human League, or Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones remixing Off The Wall... brainy but boppy New York disco, as accessible as it is angular, all burbling bass lines, resonant rhythms, shimmering synths and heavenly melodies.

BLACKBIRD BLACKBIRD (CA) - http://blackbirdblackbird.bandcamp.com/
Blackbird Blackbird is a prolific electronic musician who has been featured as a most-blogged artist on The Independent UK at least three times, and accrued a massive following via Hype Machine and Bandcamp.

TINY VICTORIES - http://tinyvictories.bandcamp.com/
A Brooklyn via Athens/DC duo, Greg Walters and Cason Kelly combine experimental electronics with earthy vocals, lush orchestration, elements of noise rock and live drums. The band builds simple songs out of complex pieces, which they best describe as "experimental pop."

Atmospheric yet catchy, hazy but somehow vital and immediate... Sun Airway has hit on the sweet spot where infectious hooks and cerebral electronic pop intersect, pulling textural sound and pop songcraft into one.

MONOGOLD - http://www.myspace.com/monogoldmusic
Wonderfully crafted lush pop that glides towards dreamy and transcendent territories. Singer Keith Kelly uses his floating falsetto to propel the trio's songs up, up, and up some more.

NEW MOODS - http://www.myspace.com/newmoods
Edgy dance-rock that's at times reminiscent of dark and claustrophobic British bands from the 80s, like very early Simple Minds, The Cure or the more recent Clinic.



Tickets are currently available for both shows for an extra $1 at :
++441 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
++L - Lorimer or ++G - Metropolitan'
