Franz Nicolay touring with David Dondero


Hot off the heels of an east coast tour with Stornoway and a European tour alongside Jack Terricloth (World/Inferno Friendship Society) and Dave Hause (the Loved Ones), FRANZ NICOLAY has announced tour plans in support of his recently released, Luck & Courage. NICOLAY will head out on a 7 week US tour with David Dondero that will include SXSW dates. NPR’s All Songs Considered named Dondero one of their “Ten Greatest Living Songwriters”, alongside Bob Dylan and Tom Waits; and Conor Oberst calls him his biggest influence.

Brookhaven – “When The Chorus Walks”


Record Label: Expel Records
Genre: Indie/Instrumental
Band Link: www.myspace.com/brkhvn
Buy on Amazon.com

Guitar-based ambient instrumental stuff. I’ll be honest – it was hard to get through this. Experimental is one thing, but long songs with softly plucked guitar and gentle percussion that fail to go anywhere are not enjoyable.

We Are Scientists – “Barbara”


Record Label: Masterswan Records
Genre: Indie Rock
Band Link: www.wearescientists.com
Buy on Amazon.com

We Are Scientists is a name that I’ve seen pop up many times and seen them playing the area. I don’t recall ever hearing their stuff besides the catchy tune “After Hours” from Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. I could be wrong though; their music sounds very familiar. Even though I didn’t really know much about the band, I definitely like their music now.

Thieves & Villains – “South America”


Record Label: Victory Records
Genre: Indie Rock
Band Link: www.thisisthievesandvillains.com
Buy on Amazon.com

Thieves and Villains hail from the Hudson Valley, which is where I’m from. They play indie rock/emo/whatever you want to call but honestly, I never heard of them before or seen them live. Their new album South America came out in August on Victory Records and it’s actually a breathe of fresh air to not hear a metal band on Victory Records.
