Tilly and the Wall are currently touring to support their new album, their first in almost 5 years.
The set list above is from a show last week . I hope they play older songs like “Pictures of Houses,” “Love Song,” and “Lost Girls.”
“All Kinds of Guns” is the best song from the new album:

On May 9th I caught Swedish band We Are Serenades at Mercury Lounge.
We Are Serenades has two frontmen, Adam Olenius from Shout Out Louds and Markus Krunegard from Laakso. The band is touring to support its album that came out last month in the US.
“Daydreaming,” a softer song that emphasizes vocal harmony, and “Come Home,” surprisingly a Christmas song, were the two tracks that struck me as the best.
We Are Serenades played “Come Home” a bit faster live than on the record, and the increase in tempo made the song (especially the chorus) even catchier.
Album version of “Come Home”:

Here are some photos + video of Ben Lee playing at City Winery in NY last night.

The setlist included “Begin,” “Apple Candy,” “No Right Angles,” “Rise Up,” “Faster Side of Normal,” “Lean Into It,” “Pointless Beauty,” and “Gamble Everything For Love.”
“The Debt Collectors”:
