You know about that Boards of Canada mystery release thing I blogged about recently? It looks like it’s finally wrapping up, and as expected it’s pointing toward there being a new BoC album out soon, which probably has their small but scarily fervent cult of fans twitching with delight right now.

In other news, it is a new week with a new schedule of live music just waiting to be dipped into. Local soul scene fixture Lynne Jordan plays at City Winery tonight. Tomorrow night the Milk Carton Kids play Schubas, Raw Power tops a bill of hardcore punk at Reggie’s, and Freakwater plays the Hideout. And on Wednesday, Neutral Milk Hotel-affiliated project Music Tapes is at Bottom Lounge, while NYC dream poppers Beach Fossils play Subterranean with local buzz band Twin Peaks.
