In Loving Memory of Annie Southworth

Annie

Panache lost one of our oldest agents and colleagues this past week, our dear friend Annie Southworth. Annie had worked with Panache for nearly a decade, and our friendship spanned over 15 years. When she joined forces with Panache, she brought such powerful wisdom, strength and experience to our very young fledgling booking agency. Together we became a power house of a booking team, that was being led by women. When she joined the agency she brought over bands like Oh Sees, No Means No, Kelley Stoltz, Fresh and Onlys and many others to our roster. She was a warrior for all womankind. Her utter love of music, vitality for life and resilient attitude helped form the foundation that Panache thrives on today. The world has suffered a great loss with Annie’s passing. Too soon. #fuck cancer #getyourbodieschecked #tellyourlovedonesyoulovethem

Stereogum

Drugdealer – “Fools” Video

Drugdealer, formerly known as Salvia Plath and even more formerly known as Run DMT — you might be sensing a theme here — is the recording project of Los Angeles musician Michael Collins. Collins specializes in a sunny form of retro-minded psych-pop, and this spring, he’s following up 2016’s The End Of Comedy with a new album called Raw Honey, his first for Brooklyn indie label Mexican Summer.

The Fader

The Fader Premieres Hand Habits, 'what lovers do'

Meg Duffy of Hand Habits wrote their forthcoming record as wildfires burned through Southern California. For an album about love and relationships, it’s a fitting setting; there’s something inherently destructive in making space within yourself to bring someone else in.

Stereogum

Stereogum Premieres Hand Habits, 'what lovers do'

In 2017, after years spent as a backing musician for the likes of Kevin Morby, Weyes Blood, and Mega Bog, Meg Duffy stepped out on their own under the name Hand Habits. Their debut album Wildly Idle (Humble Before The Void) was an excellent collection of warm, comfortable folk-rock meditations, and next month, Duffy is getting ready to follow it up with a new album.

Uproxx

Hand Habits’ ‘What Lovers Do’ Is Warm And Gently Desiring

Hand Habits (real name Meg Duffy)’s upcoming album Placeholder is one of the most anticipated new releases of 2019. The singles Duffy has released from the record so far, “Placeholder” and “Can’t Calm Down,” glow with Duffy’s contemplative songwriting and warm, thoughtful voice.

Broadway Music World Previews Hand Habits, 'What Lovers Do'

Hand Habits has released a video for “what lovers do,” the latest from their anticipated upcoming album, placeholder. The FADER, who premiered the video today, are calling it “a lulling, frank revelation on the complexities of desire.”

Brooklyn Vegan

Zig-Zags releasing LP on RidingEasy

LA’s Zig-Zags have been at it for a while, finding the middle ground between raw garage punk and classic metal, and their upcoming album They’ll Never Take Us Alive — their first for RidingEasy Records — is some of their most metal stuff yet.

Deeper Featured on The A.V. Club's 2019 SXSW Party

Another SXSW is approaching, which means its time for The A.V. Club to once more head down to Austin, Texas and throw a big ol’ party with some of our favorite musical artists. And as always, we’d love for you to join us! This year’s party is happening on Monday, March 11 at The Mohawk on Red River St. between 9th and 10th, starting at 3:30 p.m. and going until midnight. As usual, admission is free and open to all—provided you’re 21 or older.

Hand Habits Featured on Brooklyn Vegan's '50 Songs We Like From January 2019'

Between our daily coverage and our Notable Releases and Bill’s Indie Basement columns, we post tons of new music all the time here on BrooklynVegan. In an effort to keep track of all the new music we’re excited about, we’ve been posting a new playlist each month with many of the songs we love that were (mostly) released that month.

Hear This: Chris Cohen - Green Eyes

The Californian indie singer Chris Cohen has announced the release of a self-titled album on 29th March. Three years after his sophomore As If Apart, Cohen’s new record will take us on an introspective journey, between freedom and frustration:

The opening song on Meg Duffy’s forthcoming album is a bittersweet lament of being a secondary option, a softly-sung howl into nothing-ness.

Buzzbands.la Premieres Hand Habits Music Video, ‘Can’t Calm Down’

Meg Duffy emerged from the shadows of being a side player in 2017 with the first album as Hand Habits, “Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void).” The music was enveloping like slow-moving coastal fog; the plaintive lyrics seemed to come not from the singer but from the listener’s own inner voice. That makes sense, you thought, song after song.

Gorilla vs. Bear

Gorilla vs. Bear Premieres Hand Habits Music Video, ‘Can’t Calm Down’

We’re honored to premiere the video for the achingly beautiful and poignant new single from Meg Duffy, aka Hand Habits, taken from their stellar forthcoming LP placeholder, coming soon on Saddle Creek. Directed + edited by Vanessa Haddad, the vid stars Meg as a vampire who ponders the painfully real possibility that we’re all cursed with certain deep-seated familial patterns that we’ll never be able to shake.

Clash Announces Chris Cohen New Self-Titled Album

Chris Cohen is set to release a new self-titled album later this year. The songwriter’s third record is perhaps his most personal yet, informed by dramatic shifts in his family life, and by an inward search for identity.

Chris Cohen Announces Self-titled Album And Shares New Track 'Green Eyes'

Chris Cohen announces his new self-titled album to be released March 29th via Captured Tracks. His third solo album was written and recorded in his Lincoln Heights studio and at Tropico Beauties in Glendale, California over the course of the last two years. Cohen would sing melodies into his phone, fleshing them out on piano, then constructing songs around the melodies, and later, adding lyrics and other instrumentation with the help of Katy Davidson (Dear Nora), Luke Csehak(Happy Jawbone Family Band), Zach Phillips, and saxophonist Kasey Knudsen, among others. It is his most straightforward album yet, but it is also the conclusion of an unofficial cycle that began with Overgrown Path.

Aquarium Drunkard

The Aquarium Drunkard Interviews Chris Cohen

“People want a lot,” Chris Cohen sings on “Edit Out,” the second song from his forthcoming self-titled album. It’s a small phrase, economical in its concision. But like all the songs on Chris Cohen, available March 29, those four words contain multitudes.

Stereogum Premieres Chris Cohen 'Green Eyes' Music Video

For almost two decades, Chris Cohen has quietly had a hand in projects like the Curtains, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Deerhoof, and Cass McCombs. But in recent years, the indie rock sideman has stepped into the spotlight and released two bleary solo records — 2012’s debut Overgrown Path and 2016’s As If Apart.

Austin Town Hall

Chris Cohen Announces New Album

We all had hints that a new Chris Cohen record was on the horizon, and I’m just grateful that it’s closer on the horizon than I expected. I’ve been infatuated with Chris since Overgrown Path (2012), and this new single strikes a similar chord.

Northern Transmissions

“Green Eyes” Chris Cohen

Chris Cohen will release his new full-length on March 29th via Captured Tracks. The singer/songwriter’s self-titled release was written and recorded in his Lincoln Heights studio and at Tropico Beauties in Glendale, California.

Mac DeMarco announces more North American tour dates; confirms new album

And you thought this was going to be the year Mac DeMarco was going to take a little time off to putter around the house, do a spot of gardening, learn a new language…maybe take up golf? Nah, just like the old timey toy, you can’t keep the feel-good melodies going by keeping the Jack-in-the-Box. The jester always needs to come out and play.

Bikini Kill Reuniting For NYC & LA Shows Later This Year

Bikini Kill are reuniting for a string of shows later this year in New York City and Los Angeles. The lineup will feature the trio of Kathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail, and Kathi Wilcox, along with Erica Dawn Lyle on guitar. It’ll be the first time they’ve played a show since 1997, though last year they briefly reunited to perform one track at a book release party.

Bikini Kill Announce Reunion Tour

Feminist punk pioneers Bikini Kill will reunite for three shows this spring in New York and L.A. Kathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail, and Kathi Wilcox will be joined by guitarist Erica Dawn Lyle for the shows, replacing guitarist Billy Karren. These will be Bikini Kill’s first full shows since the band broke up in 1997. (In late 2017, Hanna, Vail, and Wilcox played one song together at the Kitchen in New York City, during an event celebrating the release of the 33 1/3 book about the Raincoats by Pitchfork Contributing Editor Jenn Pelly.)
