Connections’ new album, Body Language, will be out on LP/CD/digital on October 1. You can pre-order it now through our distributor, Midheaven (a.k.a. Revolver), or via iTunes or Amazon. The band has tour dates in the works to support it, some (hopefully) with the Breeders. In the meantime, check out a track from the new album, “Summer Creeps,” kindly previewed by the folks over at Pitchfork.

After about 12 or 13 years, Anyway is proud to welcome Central Pennsylvania’s finest rock & roller, Brother JT back to Columbus this Thursday, July 11, for a show at the Tree Bar. Thrill Jockey put out his new record, and we can’t wait to see him play again! Local faves WV White and Purple Pyramids round out this amazing bill. Show starts at 10pm!
St. Lenox will be performing at the 2013 IMR Music Festival, in Atlanta. The festival, put on by Indie Music Reviewer, runs August 8 to 11. Details at the IMR website.
Seems like Swearing at Motorists’ Dave Doughman has been MIA in recent years. However, he is reportedly working on a new album and is making his return to Columbus next week to play a show at the Tree Bar on Monday, May 13. Also on the bill are Connections, who consist largely of Dayton-area natives like Mr. Doughman, and Winter Makes Sailors. Be forewarned: it is on the early side, with a start time of 9pm.
St. Lenox, whose debut is forthcoming on Anyway, recently posted a new song. This one is a collaboration with our pal Parker Paul. Take a listen below.
After two successful performances supporting the Breeders on their Last Splash tour in Pittsburgh and Oberlin, Ohio, Connections have been asked to open for them again at The Majestic Theatre in Detroit on Sunday, May 12 (a.k.a. Mother’s Day). We can’t think of a better way to tell mom you love her than to take her to the show, and tickets are still available.
