New Zealand's noise pop phenoms, Popstrangers have recently inked a deal with Flying Nun Records. The band will be taking a break from recording their debut full length to play 4 shows at this years CMJ Music Marathon next week. The forthcoming debut follows the bands 2010 jaw dropper, Happy Accidents EP. The trio of Joel Flyer, Adam Page, and David Larsen have just shared the track, What Else Could They Do from their the forthcoming 2012 debut LP. It's slightly over 3 minutes of noise drenched pop with virulent hooks and so completely in our wheel house.

Western MA's self proclaimed "slops", Bunny's A Swine are back in town tonight to kick off a short tour with Banditas and The Silks at The Plough and Stars. The band will be armed with a bunch of new songs from their soon to be released sophomore set, All Day, Alright coming to vinyl and digital formats via TinyRadars Records later this month. A couple weeks ago the fine folks at Allston Pudding debut the album track Hen House, which showcases the bands prowess for fuzzy, pop songs and strong harmonies. Upon returning from this tour Bunny's A Swine will celebrate the release of All Day, Alright with an album release show on 10/20 at the Sierra Grille in North Hampton.

We were thrilled when this popped up on last month. Swells is first new track from Irish synth pop trio, Crayonsmith in progress follow up to 2008 superlative White Wonder and as you will soon see, the video was recorded in the bands Glasnevin kitchen. Crayonsmith will also issue the Heaven In An Aeroplane 7"on November 7th via Limerick's Out On A Limb Records.
