Superhumanoids Play the Late Show Tomorrow at Mercury Lounge

June 20th, 2013

Their debut full-length, Exhibitionists, came out last week, but Superhumanoids, staples of the Silver Lake music scene in Los Angeles, have been winning over audiences since multi-instrumentalists Sarah Chernoff (vocals, piano and harp), Cameron Parkins (vocals, guitar and keys) and Max St. John (guitar, keys and drums) teamed up more than two years ago. And while much of the trio’s dreamy electro-pop music is upbeat—or “music to help kiss the doldrums away,” as they call it—their material still manages to cover a range of emotions. Watch Superhumanoids, above, performing “So Strange” at the Virgin Mobile House at this year’s SXSW and then go see them onstage, playing the late show (with the Stationary Set) tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge.

Deadbeat Darlings Play a Hometown Show Tomorrow

December 19th, 2012

When his previous band broke up, Joseph King (vocals and guitar) left Austin, Texas, for New York City, where he continued to write new songs and play solo shows around town. Slowly but surely, King began gigging with other people, and eventually Deadbeat Darling—now with Mohit Bhansali (guitar and vocals), Ian Everall (bass) and Evan Howard (drums)—playing an eclectic mix of dub, reggae, surf rock and trip hop, were born. Their first LP, Weight of Wandering, came out in 2009, and the follow-up, The Angel’s Share (stream it below), was released at the beginning of this year. Deadbeat Darling (above, doing an acoustic version of “Flowers for Our Graves” at SXSW) have steadily toured ever since, and you can see them—alongside the Stationary Set, Desert Stars and Sky White Tigertomorrow night at The Bowery Ballroom.
