Thanks to everyone who came to Monika's record release party in Brooklyn this past Thursday -- it was an amazing night -- but if you missed it, you will have a few more chances next week to catch Monika in NYC during CMJ. These shows are featuring a killer band, including album producer Homer Steinweiss and many of his Menahan Street Band/Daptone cohorts who played on Secret in the Dark, and if last night was any indication, you should show up ready to dance. Monika's full CMJ schedule listed below the jump.

We are very excited to welcome SK Kakraba, who will be appearing at Other Music for an in-store performance on Monday, October 5, to mark the release of Songs of Pappieye, out 10/2 on Awesome Tapes of Africa. (It's also the first release of newly recorded material that the label has ever put out.) The master of the gyil, an ancient Ghanaian xylophone, Kakraba's forthcoming album of solo pieces features entrancing compositions and improvisational modes that have been passed down by generations of hereditary musicians. His live performances are as stunning as his record -- no doubt this will be a very special evening, and we hope you will join us.

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'll also be giving away a ticket to her Sunday show at Music Hall of Williamsburg with the purchase of her new CD or LP to the first 20 customers. We hope you will join us!

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!!
