San Francisco, CA / New York, NY "Rich Doors" NewVillager on MySpace NewVillager on The Hype Machine
Keep it up don't stop, don't loose your place.. . Those lyrics instantly became my new mantra simply because so much in life depends on our ability to keep up a certain momentum. Take New Years resolutions for example, we all get fired up with the prospect of a fresh start and bask in our fantastic goals and expectations. Then January comes and things look good but by the time February settles in that energy and enthusiasm is long gone. Some people learn to break out of the cycle, but most keep doing the same thing [...]
We are really diggin the new track from NewVillager today, check "Say The Code & Black Rain streaming below via Anorak
I’ve been a fan of NewVillage r since their splendid debut single Rich Doors/Genghis On on twosyllable, so I was pleased to find out IAMSOUND signed the duo a while ago. They dazzled our minds a couple of weeks ago with their video for LightHouse , but their new jam Say The Code is from the same top-notch quality.
Absolutely enamored with this song, guys. "Lighthouse" is the new one from NewVillager. I have been out of the loop, apparently, as I heard this song and immediately started searching for more. The internet is afire in praise for NewVillager. This is a delightful duo comprised of Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini (the two hunks above); based out of Brooklyn via San Francisco. You can hear the influences they draw from the two cities they back and forth from in their music; they make playfully fun and involved music. I know that doesn't sound cool, but in a [...]

Tuesday, March 15, 2011 PART 2 You're probably wondering what the hell all those letters mean. For my coverage of South By Southwest, I offer a massive mix for a massive fest - the People To Get Excited About If You're Going To SXSW But Would Like Anyway Even If You Weren't Going Mix. The product of me quickly skimming through the list of artists and jotting down names that had me getting all giddy, the PTGEAIYGTSBWLAEIYWG mix doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of [...]
I'll post my picks for the festival in a day or two, in the meantime, here's a couple things that sounded good to me today. - The Recommender profiles Nottingham, England five-piece nu-folk band Dog Is Dead . Check out the video for "Young". - We Listen For You is collecting links to download free/legal SXSW samplers . Don't forget the free one at iTunes . - Neon Gold has a post on Australia's Boy & Bear, check out "Mexican Mavis" . - Gorilla [...]
Say hello to NewVillager because you should know them. We were first introduced to the duo with "Rich Door," a track from Ghostly International's Moongadet Nocturnal Suite album ( reviewed here ). It was one of our favorite songs. It still is one of our favorite songs. From "Lighthouse," the first single from their new album, IAMSOUND , arose that old feeling, that taste for one more bite, that urgency to be satiated. We've contacted the band. We're waiting. You should be too. NewVillager: "Lighthouse" [...]
The track underneath this video is yet another from recent IAMSOUND signees NewVillager. Outside of that, I'm not sure if this video needs any extra explanation. -
The latest project to sign to IAMSOUND : NewVillager. Their self-titled debut is coming June 21st. Dig on the first track to drop from it below: Stream: NewVillager- Rich Doors -
Didn't you idolize Le Tigre when you were growing up? Okay, if you're not a female between the ages of 20 and 30, maybe not, but they sure were a formative band for me. JD Samson is a big part of that, at least on the band's second and third albums. Anyone involved in Le Tigre is definitely a cultural force, and her new project, MEN, is certainly noteworthy. I haven't seen them live yet, but I hear that it's an act not to be missed. Plus, New Villager is opening. I haven't heard anything too remarkably new from them [...]

Okkervil River are getting ready to put out their latest album I Am Very Far on Jagjaguwar, and it looks like the band are prepping a lengthy tour in support of the May 10th release. The band first have a few shows around Austin and SXSW in March, but it is when things really kick off at the end of May that the band bring along some great acts with them such as Titus Andronicus , Future Islands , Julianna Barwick , and NewVillager . The schedule is below. [...]
With Okkervil River's new album , I Am Very Far , dropping in May, and an opening performance for Arcade Fire planned for April 30th in Dallas, it was really only a matter of time before we got an extended tour announcement. Well, the wait is now over. The Austin based indie-rockers will stick close to home to kick-off the tour, playing 4 gigs over 3 days during South By Southwest . One-off dates exist in April and May, then the tour really begins to pick up steam once summer arrives. Okkervil will hit up most [...]

"Lighthouse" by NewVillager . Grab the track at Stereogum .
We had the privilege of spending some quality time with the bros from NewVillager back in 2009 when they performed at MOKB's SXSW party . Rad dudes, totally out there. They seemed to fall off the radar after that. Just when we started to forget about them, they've returned with two new videos in the last couple months. Last month saw the release of 2009 classic Rich Doors and now we have a wacky, wild video for LightHouse , a track from the [...]
