Ganglians and High Places to play Whelan's

Ganglians are easily one of this blog's favourite bands of the last year: combining the lo-fi garage-friendly sound associated with many of their Woodsist labelmates with a pastoral vibe that's not a far remove from Fleet Foxes, the two records they released in 2009 - Ganglians and Monster Head Room - were compelling affairs. They'll be playing a gig upstairs in Whelan's on May 21st, a week before they join the Primavera Sound 10th anniversary celebrations.

Before that comes the visit of Brooklyn-based experimentalists High Places, who'll also play upstairs in the same venue on the 5th of May. They've released a new track from their forthcoming album as a free download, link from Pitchfork:


  1. It appears likely that Grizzly Bear and Condo Fucks (Yo La Tengo) will play the Primavera 10th Anniversary. Not confirmed however.
