Congrats to Jonathan Toubin Village Voice's Readers Choice BEST DJ IN NEW YORK

http://i1382.photobucket.com/albums/ah242/Michelle_Cable/JT_zpsa02d73b8.jpgCongratulations to New York Night Train’s DJ Jonathan Toubin who was named BEST DJ IN NY by the VILLAGE VOICE. “With most DJs doing their best Steve Aoki impressions in the club, DJ Jonathan Toubin’s “New York Night Train” has felt more refreshing than ever. At his Home Sweet Home residency (beginning at 10:30 p.m. every Friday), Toubin and a slew of special guests spin 45s of the best and most obscure soul and early rock ‘n’ roll. You can do the mashed potato or you can do the twist in this underground cave of a club, where you’ll be surrounded by taxidermy and some serious fans of old-school tunes, or you can catch him at Brooklyn Bowl one Saturday out of every month. Who doesn’t want Sam Cooke to soundtrack their night out?” - VILLAGE VOICE

Exclaim!

Exclaim! reviews Twerps' Range Anxiety

When Twerps describe themselves as a collaborative band, they really mean it, as all four members contribute to songwriting and vocal duties. On Range Anxiety, they once again team up with producer Jack Farley and the result is a great continuation of their self-titled debut album and recent Underlay EP.

ABC Radio

ABC Radio's Live And Local features Tiny Ruins

Each week, “Live and Local” with Fiona Wyllie brings you live performances and interviews with musicians recorded by ABC Local Radio presenters around Australia. This week features Holly Fullbrook AKA Tiny Ruins.

Music Feeds

Music Feeds features Twerps in an interview

Since forming in 2008, Twerps’s sweetly shambolic indie-pop has resonated with fans around the country and around the world, as well as catching the ear of Merge Records, who signed the band last year.

Purple Sneakers

Purple Sneakers interview Dune Rats

From what started as two dudes making tunes, to packing them into a suitcase and playing them around the world (bearing witness to their band name branded into the skin of many a fan along the way), Brissy [now] three piece, DUNE RATS, have definitely proven that anything is attainable if you really, really want it.

Sydney Morning Herald

Sydney Morning Herald previews Shonen Knife's upcoming Australian shows

Shonen Knife returnto Australia as guests of the Sydney Festival and Hobart’s Mona Foma. The Japanese pop/punk trio formed in Osaka in 1981 and came to international attention during the early 1990s after being championed by Sonic Youth, Nirvana and Redd Kross.

Under The Radar

Under the Radar interviews Jonny Allan of Happyness

Jonny Allan on Plans for 2015, U2’s Free Album, First Celebrity Crush, Mark Kozelek, and the Question He’s Tired of Answering.

Pop Matters

Pop Matters interviews Ultimate Painting

If recording the album in that D.I.Y. manner was deliberate, so was the music’s minimalist, straightforward approach. Both musicians performed all of the instrumentation on Ultimate Painting and divided the songwriting duties 50-50.

Under The Radar

Under the Radar interviews Haley Bonar

Haley Bonar on her first concert, which Golden Girls character she’s most like, Mark Kozelek, U2, and traveling to Mars

Now Toronto

Now Toronto profiles Slim Twig

Canada’s loss is often America’s gain. Take Slim Twig, for example. In 2010, he made the album A Hound At The Hem that his then label, Paper Bag, decided not to release.  Fast-forward two years, when Jonathan Galkin of DFA Records stumbled across Hound, liked what he heard and released it this past October.

Stereogum

Stereogum premiers Michael Rault's "Still Not Sad" video

Michael Rault has a knack for cooking up vintage rock grooves. But his true weirdness has now revealed itself in the video for “Still Not Sad.” The black-and-white footage belies the song’s radiant psych touches, which cozy up to Tame Impala territory in the final stretch. It’s a succinct statement of Rault’s playful, promising melodicism.

Double J

Double J interviews Shonen Knife with Omar Souleyman

Myf catches up with two huge international acts touring the country right now: Syrian electro-pop king, Omar Souleyman and all-female Japanese pop punk band, Shonen Knife.

Noisey

Noisey premiers Surf City's "Hollow Veins"

Surf City is a band from New Zealand. This is their new song called “Hollow Veins.” It kind of sounds like Bob Weir fronting Sonic Youth, which is chill.

Consequence of Sound

Consequence of Sound streams Ty Segall playing his new album Live in San Francisco

Rowdy crowd, meet stacks of amplifiers — Ty, Charlie, Mikal, and Emily came to singe your ears off. There have been live recordings of Ty before of course, but never so crisply and fully realized as this scorching platter of fuzz.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/01/album-review-twerps-range-anxiety/

Consequence of Sound reviews Twerps' Range Anxiety

For those who complain about Real Estate’s predictability, Twerps are a breath of fresh air. Range Anxiety is an album of endearing earnestness and jangly charm, and it will stand on your doorstep asking to come inside and chill for a while.

Stereogum

Stereogum streams Twerps' Range Anxiety

Twerps specialize in a warm, jangled, lo-fi form of power-pop that can bring real beauty even at its most nervous. Range Anxiety, their second full-length, works in the grand tradition of wiry, homespun bands like the Bats, the Feelies, and, more recently, Real Estate.

The Daily Telegraph

The Daily Telegraph reviews Tiny Ruins

Her brand of folk obviously resonates with a large audience in Australia. The Spiegeltent was sold out with the punters representing a wide demographic.
There’s a lot of good acoustic music coming out of New Zealand and in Tiny Ruins. Sydney can count itself lucky to have heard some of the finest.

Tone Deaf

Tone Deaf tells you what to expect from Shonen Kinfe's Australia shows

Welcome then to the world of Japanese trio Shonen Knife, the all female group who have been mashing their brand of pop orientated punk and new wave influences such as The Ramones and Buzzcocks, with their love of 1960’s girl groups, the Beach Boys and The Beatles since 1981.

Nola

Nola announces 'Space Rites' featuring Quintron's Weather Warlock

New Orleans Airlift presents the fifth edition of “Space Rites,” featuring Quintron and Miss Pussycat’s Weather Warlock and more, on Sunday (Jan. 18)

News OK

News OK reviews Twerps' Range Anxiety

Twerps does an excellent job paying homage to bands that are sometimes forgotten but immortal nonetheless in their impact on the current jangle indie pop phase. Even though we may be in the dead of winter, Twerps is enjoying another brilliant Australian summer, and we’re along for the ride.

Gigwise

Mac Demarco to play alongside Patti Smith at Field Day Festival

Mac DeMarco will bring his unique brand of Canadian slacker songcraft to the second day of Field Day in East London.

Tone Deaf

ToneDeaf announces Mac DeMarco's DJ set with King Gizzard at Laneway Festival after party

The Hi-Fi will feature Mac DeMarco will play against our favourite garage-psych psychos King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard in a back to back DJ battle.

The Bay Bridged

The Bay Bridged announces Ty Segall's new release

It’s been almost five whole months since he put out a record, but he’s back with the Mr. Face EP, out this week on Famous Class. Mr. Face is a double 7″ EP pressed on translucent red and blue-colored vinyl, and you can apparently use the records as a pair of 3D glasses.

The 405

The 405 Announces Mac DeMarco's world tour

Mac DeMarco has just announced a brand new world tour which includes a run in Australia for Laneway Festival, his slots at Coachella, a performance during Austin Psych Fest, and his newly announced Bonnaroo gig.

The All State

The All State calls Mac DeMarco one of the must-sees at Bonnaroo

For being a relatively new giant in the indie and psychedelic rock genres, Mac DeMarco is quite possibly the most insane musician on the market.
