    • Empress Of Record Release Party (Friday, 9/11)


      The past few years has seen Lorely Rodriguez honing the exotic productions of her
      Empress Of guise into a more clear-eyed pop direction while still retaining the rich details of her gorgeously abstract earlier work. It's all culminated into an excellent debut full-length, Me, which sees release next Friday, September 11 on Terrible Records. That evening Lorely will be signing copies of her new Empress Of record at Other Music while we serve up pizza and drinks and play the album in full. We hope you will join us!

    • Yo La Tengo Record Release Party (Friday, 8/28 at 8 p.m.)

       Yo La Tengo return with Stuff Like That There, a follow-up of sorts to their much-loved Fakebook from 1991. Like Fakebook, this upcoming album is a wonderfully diverse mix of cover songs, reworkings of Yo La Tengo tracks, and a few new originals too, with Ira, Georgia and James reunited with former member Dave Schram and performing again as a quartet. Other Music is hosting a special celebration on the evening of Stuff Like That There's, release (Friday, August 28 at 8 p.m.), with Yo La Tengo coming by to DJ cover tunes, sign records, and say hello to their friends and fans. That night, customers who purchase Yo La Tengo's new album will also be entered for a chance to win two guest list spots to Songs Like These Here: an evening of YLT-themed piano karaoke featuring Joe McGinity, Tuesday, September 8, at Sid Gold's Request Room in Manhattan. We hope you'll come and join in on the fun!!
