After three years out of the spotlight, Japandroids announced their new album last week. Near To The Wild Heart Of Life is due out January 27, 2017 on Anti- Records, with a special early release for vinyl on January 24th. Additionally, they released the first single of the same name, prompting Pitchfork to say “...a new Japandroids record feels like hero’s return,” and Noisey concurred, “thank the good lord for Japandroids.” A pre-order for the album is up now at www.japandroids.com, with the option to buy the special 7” edition of the single featuring a b-side cover of Talking Heads’ “Love → Building on Fire.”
Craig Finn & the Uptown Controllers
Craig Finn & the Uptown Controllers
Perhaps best known as the frontman for The Hold Steady, Craig Finn has taken his solo career to a whole new level. From performing with members of the Grateful Dead to collaborating with drum genius Joe Russo, Finn has combined the literary influences from Jack Keroauc and John Berryman with the musical affect of Springsteen and The Replacements' Paul Westerberg to create a highly descriptive style focused on the narrative. This will be a rare and special intimate show.

"A born storyteller whose chosen rock as his medium" - Pitchfork

"Finn's lyrics mix the frankness of drunken confession with the literary allusions and skillful character development of someone who has read a million books on the college quad." - Slate
