Lafayette's GIVERS, seemingly never not on someone's "bands to watch" list, made a deal this month with Glassnote Records, home to Phoenix and Mumford & Sons. The group's been working on an a debut LP while still riding on this killer lil' teaser EP and 2009's self-titled EP — both free for you to stream. (The band's next N.O. appearance is during Foburg on March 11.)
Tomorrow, members of the Elephant 6 collective — the '90s-defining pop circle spanning Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, Elf Power, Nana Grizol and others — take their Holiday Surprise Tour to One Eyed Jacks. A taste? Download Elf Power's "Stranger in the Window" from the band's latest self-titled LP. And grab Nana Grizol's "For Things That Haven't Come Yet" and "Galaxies" from 2010's Ruth.
Grab Musik from the Future, the latest mixtape from 7th Ward rap group NOMW (New Orleans Most Wanted).
