Parts & Labor to release new album on Jagjaguar in 2011

Jagjaguwar announced yesterday the forthcoming release of Constant Future, the fifth full-length album by Brooklyn's Parts & Labor, available in the U.S. on March 8 and in the U.K. on March 7. The band, featured on the cover of the 11th NYC issue of The Deli back in 2007 (side picture) can be called a sui generis totem of modern art-punk. Their last release, 2008’s Receivers, saw Parts & Labor blasting off in all directions and creating collage art from hundreds of fan-curated samples.The new album, co-produced by Dave Friedman of Flaming Lips' fame in his Tarbox Road Studios in Casadega, NY, promises to be one of the sonic events of 2011. 
Parts & Labor also took part in a recent fundraiser for The Voice Project organization which raises money to support the peace movement in Uganda. As part of the fundraiser Parts & Labor performed a cover of No Age's "Life Prowler" from their new album Everything in Between.

The War on Drugs Belated EP Release Party at KFN Dec. 9

Psychedelic folk rockers The War on Drugs will be celebrating a belated EP release party tonight at Kung Fu Necktie. Their latest EP Future Weather follows in the experimental vein of their past efforts with waves of reverb on, well, everything. The songs do not drone as much as groove into an almost hypnotic state that various guitar and harmonica tracks cut through sounding like spacey whale calls. Frontman Adam Granduciel recently returned from tour as a member of Kurt Vile’s Violators, and wrote on their website about spending some time in the studio with The War on Drugs bassist Dave Hartley where they worked on their seemingly unfinishable album. Fortunately, this new EP should tide fans over while they crawl toward the completion of their second LP. Granduciel has a passion for pushing the boundaries of sound and plunging head first into sonic journeys making the Americana overtones only the first step in the creation of The War on Drugs tracks. Come check them out at this intimate performance before they head off to Europe and inevitably hole up to complete their upcoming album. The War on Drugs will be joined by Michael Johnson’s Ape School to open up the festivities. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Adam G. (not Granduciel)
