I decided to check out the Labrador Records site to see if any of the bands are coming out here to play and lo and behold:
US tour in April
19/4 – Philadelphia, PA – Marathon Bar20/4 – Washington, DC – DC921/4 – New York City, NY – Mercury Lounge22/4 – Boston, MA – Great Scott23/4 – Columbus, OH – Summit24/4 – Chicago, IL – Schubas25/4 – Seattle, WA – Sunset Tavern26/4 – Portland, OR – Holocene27/4 – San Francisco, Rickshaw

Yes I’m excited. The question is can I get my lazy ass out to LA on a Thursday night?
On a side note:
Shout Out Louds released the album Work last week. Sounds more low key, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s definitely a changed from their catchy Swedish Indie Rock that fans have been accustomed to.
Malory also released an album called Pearl Diver in January to the ClubAC30 label. Some other bands that you might have heard of off that label are: Airiel, Air Formation, Broadcast, Chapterhouse, The Daysleepers and much much more! Pearl Diver reminds me of their last album The Third Face, but sort of a continuation or a progression of it. I’m glad they finally finished and released an album though, because I was starting to wonder if they turned out like so many other bands who just disappear and are never heard from again.
