It’s been a long year for Evan Stephens Hall and Pinegrove, returning into the spotlight after coming out publicly about accusations made against him and took some time away from the spotlight. It was a confusing time indeed as it seemed Pinegrove were on the brink of some pretty big breakout success that would’ve tied into the release of their new album Skylight.

A year later, Pinegrove slowly returned to the limelight, announcing the delayed release of the new album and some select tour dates, including two sold out nights at Music Hall of Williamsburg, where we caught them just last year (along with Newport Folk Festival).

By Will Oliver, December 5th 2018 Interview Listen Stream

Sunflower Bean have had an eventful 2018, releasing their critically acclaimed new album Twentytwo in Blue back in March via Mom + Pop Music. They have been touring hard in support of it ever since, including a performance at Bowery Ballroom in April and a free show at East River Park in August.

This Friday they play their largest hometown show to date with a headlining performance at Warsaw (that is presented by Governors Ball). There are still some tickets available for the show that you can buy right here.

We had the chance to interview the band’s Julia Cumming and ask her about touring in support of the record in 2018, some of the best acts they’ve opened for, and what fans can come to expect from their show on Friday.

Find our conversation below and stay tuned for coverage from the show coming very soon.

Thom Yorke is currently back on a solo tour that is technically a part of his tour in support of Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes but also covers a bit of the now, as this year saw him make a bone-chilling score for the new remake of the horror film Suspiria, directed by Luca Guadagnino, as well as the future, giving fans a preview of a few new songs that hint at what’s to come.

On November 27th he closed off a sold out two-night run at Kings Theatre that saw him backed by longtime collaborator Nigel Godrich as well as audiovisual artist Tarik Barir. Yorke traded positions from his guitar to full-on frontman, allowing him the freedom of just holding onto a microphone as he roamed the stage dancing and jumping throughout the performance.

The legendary Echo and the Bunnymen returned to New York on November 21st for a Thanksgiving Eve performance kicked off the holiday weekend in style. The performance came in support of their latest release The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon a collection of reimagined versions of classic songs, as well as two brand new songs.

We last caught the band at Webster Hall in 2016 and this being in the seated Town Hall, this was a much different vibe than the last time around. Maybe too much so, as singer Ian McCulloch had to urge the crowd to stand up and get into the show. It was during “Villiers Terrace,” nearly halfway into the show, where the show seemed to change gears with the band seeming to feed off energy from the crowd. By the time they ran through “Bring On The Dancing Horses,” “The Killing Moon” and “The Cutter,” they had every single attendee in the crowd standing and belting out every word with passion.

They closed the night with a 2-song encore of “Lips Like Sugar” and “Ocean Rain” that sent the audience happily into the night, ready to partake in Thanksgiving weekend with their loved ones.

Dirty Projectors returned with their new album Lamp Lit Prose on July 13 via Domino Records, just one year after releasing their self-titled album. While that album was, in essence, a solo album from frontman Dave Longstreth, Lamp Lit Prose was more of a return to the Dirty Projectors dynamic that fans have come to expect in recent years.

However, it was clear from their performance earlier this summer at both Governors Ball and Public Arts that the lineup had undergone some serious changes, with only bassist Nat Baldwin and drummer Mike Johnson returning to the band. Joining them were vocalists and multi-instrumentalists Maia Friedman, Felicia Douglass, and Kristin Slipp.

On November 19th the band closed out both a three-show run at Elsewhere (with two shows the day before) which also happened to be their final show of 2018. So it was safe to say that they had to end on a good note and that they did.
