Concert Preview

Melbourne, Australia rockers Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever will return this year with new album Hope Downs via Sub Pop. This weekend they are stopping into Rough Trade NYC for not one, but two performances at the venue to give fans a taste of the new material and old favorites as well. We caught them last year when they opened for Tennis and they were easily one of the better opening bands I saw the entire year.

The early show is sold out but there are still some tickets remaining for the late performance that evening. These guys are bound to soon be headlining much bigger venues someday so you best catch them at a room like Rough Trade while you still can.

The always reliable Ruban Nielson returned this year with Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s fourth album Sex & Food, released via Jagjaguwar. He will bring the new tour back to New York next week for a pair of shows at where else but Brooklyn Steel on April 25 and 26.

Tickets are still available for both shows but don’t wait too long as they’re bound to sell out very soon. If you’ve ever seen an UMO show you know just how great of a performance that Nielson and co. put on and these new songs are going to sound pretty epic within Brooklyn Steel.

Preview: Caroline Rose at Rough Trade NYC

She’s currently on tour in support of the record and will bring it to us here on Tuesday for a sold out performance at Rough Trade NYC. Getting to see Rose and her band perform these tracks live in the tight quarters of Rough Trade will be a blast. There will also be an opening performance from singer Henry Jamison.

Preview: Colin Macleod at Rockwood Music Hall

By Will Oliver, March 12th 2018

Colin Macleod is a Scottish singer-songwriter from a remote place known as Isle of Lewis. MacLeod used to release music under the moniker The Boy Who Trapped The Sun or the abbrivated C. MacLeod, but now he goes by his full name which he will release his new album Bloodlines under this May.

Two of the songs that he’s release so far “Kicks In” and “Shake The Wall,” show a confident songwriter who is sure of his abilities with some real songwriting talent and one hell of a voice. There’s always a wealth of great powerful musicians that seem to find their way over from Scottland and Macleod seems to be another voice that deserves to be heard in a big, big way.

He is currently in Austin for a bunch of SXSW performances and will then come here to New York on March 20 for a free performance at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 1).

You can learn a lot about Macleod as both a person an artist from this wonderful video that I have included below, along with the official music video for “Shake The Wall,” along with the flyer for all of his SXSW dates.
