Philadelphia-via-Austin outfit Literature open for Pet Milk at MilkBoy tonight.  The psych / pop quartet released their debut album Arab Spring in January 2012 and followed it up with a 7″ single “Tie Dye” a year later.  For their recent Key Studio Session, Literature recorded the single alongside four new songs – check out the full session here.  Tickets and information can be found here.  Below, stream the title track to Arab Spring.

The Bailey Hounds perform at Ortlieb’s Lounge.  The local dark-folk band will release a new album on May 28th called All the Blood in the World.  The six-song record follows up the Hounds’ 2011 debut full-length Along the Gallows.  Last year, The Bailey Hounds found a performance space that matched their brand of folk music quite well: Laurel Hill Cemetery.  They’ll be revisiting the site on June 8th but see them first tonight when they open for The Futurebirds.  Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here.  Below, stream and download The Bailey Hounds’ new song “Hell Ain’t Forever.”

XPN welcomes Paul Kelly to the Tin Angel.  The Australian singer-songwriter is touring behind his 2012 LP Spring and Fall, released through his own label.  The new record is his nineteenth studio effort and first of new material in five years following 2007’s Stolen Apples.  Kelly has won several Australian music awards and was inducted to the Australian Recording Industry Association hall of fame in 2007.   Tickets and information for tonight’s show can be found here.  Below, watch Kelly’s performance on KEXP.
