Little Racer celebrates Foreign Tongues EP

“Garage rockers without garages. Surf rockers who can’t swim.” That’s how local band Little Racer describes themselves, and as strange as it seems, it’s pretty accurate. For the past few years, the group has been blasting loud yet shimmery guitar riffs and groovy bass around the boroughs and up and down the East Coast. Little Racer celebrated their new EP, Foreign Tongues, earlier this month with a release party bringing together some of Brooklyn’s other borderline surf rock bands, including New Myths, Surf Rock is Dead and New Life.

New Mac DeMarco instrumental record: ‘Some Other Ones’

mac

Just in time for his bbq today in Brooklyn! From Pitchfork:

The 4th of July just ended, but that’s no reason to not throw another cookout. To help, Mac DeMarco has just shared Some Other Ones, a collection of instrumental recordings he’s billed as his “BBQ soundtrack.” It features songs such as “Little Pepper” and “Onion Man”, and was recorded from July 4-8 in Queens, New York. Check it out below via his Bandcamp. You might hear some of these tunes at the BBQ that DeMarco is throwing in Brooklyn this afternoon in support of his new record, Another One. That goes down at 153 Morgan Ave at 1 p.m.; you’ll also be able to score some food if you make a food bank donation.

Tanlines’ video for ‘Palace’ stars Natasha Lyonne, Alex Karpovsky and Baby’s All Right

Tanlines’ new video for Palace is largely filmed in Williamsburg’s Baby’s All Right and features a few faces you may recognize. From UO Blog:

Set to “Palace,” off of the band’s sophomore album Highlights, the music video follows singer/guitarist Eric Emm and his doppelgänger (played by Alex Karpovsky, of HBO’s Girls, who co-directed the music video with Teddy Blanks) as they react differently to a break-up.

Think of it as the band version of Sliding Doors, with a similarly impressive lineup of actors; in addition to Alex, the music video also stars Natasha Lyonne (aka Nicky Nichols on Orange is the New Black) and features appearances by Leo Fitzpatrick and Ben Sinclair.
