Brooklyn-based Dinosaur Feathers is back with a third album Control, which came out earlier this month via Ernest Jenning Record Company.
The record is described as "drum machines & lithe pulsing basslines meet shimmering synths, coked-out horns & soulful vocals"... and it would seem the duo is on tour on their way back to CMJ this year.

New Jersey's The Gaslight Anthem is currently on tour in support of their latest album Get Hurt, out now on Island Records.
You may recall that when we talked to Matt Pinfield in 2012, he is quoted to say that the punk rock band's song "45" was his clear favorite at that time.
They've grown in terms of fanbase since their Fine Line Music Café days, and will be playing the main room at First Avenue this Wednesday.
The two openers are Against Me! (who I've often confused with Rise Against) and Cory Branan (who is described as "too punk for country, too country for punk").

Sydney's The Preatures are in the US touring, mostly thanks to Austin City Limits music festival in Texas (a lot of bands are touring in the Midwest because of ACL and CMJ in New York). The Australian band will likely play tracks from their latest album Blue Planet Eyes, which came out at the end of September on Harvest Records.
Billboard called them "pop-punk charmers", while Glide Magazine said singer Isabella Manfredi has "seductive vocals".
The band is stopping by the Triple Rock Social Club on Wednesday, with support from local Astronomique.

Singer/songwriter Kina Grannis is touring in support of her sophomore album Elements. And guess where she is kicking it all off? At the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, of course. Grannis will be joined by her full band.
The deeply personal album Elements is a celebration of her one year anniversary of her marriage, "I’m definitely baring more of myself and my life with the new album, and sharing my wedding with ‘My Dear’ felt like a really special and important part of that process."
