Tom Petty's band Mudcrutch is releasing a new album, Mudcrutch 2, out May 20. You can hear the first single from that album, "Trailer," at Stereogum, and preorder the record from Petty's site. The band plays the Tabernacle on Thurs., June 2, with the Shelters.
Pitchfork reports that Father John Misty performed a cover of the Nine Inch Nails hit "Closer" at his recent Chicago and Minneapolis shows. Misty plays a sold out show at the Tabernacle on Fri., Apr. 29, so we'll see if he makes the cover a permanent fixture of his set by then.
Among the many records released last week was the collaboration album between Sam Beam (aka Iron & Wine) and Jesca Hoop, Love Letter For Fire. They play together at the Buckhead Theatre on Thurs., May 26. Marlon William opens.
