Little Brazil adds new member

* Consider these the first pieces of concrete news regarding the next Little Brazil album. The Omaha indie-rockers trotted out new material during a Friday night gig at The Sydney, 5918 Maple St., as they headlined the HearNebraska.org launch party. The gig was also the first show with Megan Morgan as a full-fledged member. Morgan, who plays in Landing on the Moon with her husband and Little Brazil drummer Oliver, is now full-time on keyboards for the quickly-evolving Little Brazil. Hopefully, more news of a follow-up to 2009's Son will come quickly over the next few months. * Send your best wishes to Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino, who had to cancel an interview with The Reader because of a bout with the flu. Best Coast hits Omaha with Wavves Feb. 12 for a show at the Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St. Cosentino and Wavves' Nathan Williams, who are dating, spent 2010 in the indie-rock public eye, as both had highly praised records. Best Coast's Crazy For You succeeded in being a modern update on the indie rocker who vents about boys, love and loneliness, something of a Liz Phair for the garage set. * Tommie Emmi, who runs the lathe cut record maker Poly-cut, is adding a record label to his bag of tricks. Fear of Music Records is set to begin releasing small-run lathe-cut records with a handful of releases this spring. Emmi says the label will focus on smaller bands, with an eye toward letting them indulge their creative whims. “I personally think the recording industry is afraid to let bands do whatever they want,” Emmi says. Up first for the label is an EP release by UK garage trio the Damerels and a split single by Watching the Train Wreck and Peace of Shit. Visit Fear of Music at fearofmusicrecords.com. * Noah's Ark Was a Spaceship will go on tour just weeks after they release their debut album Hanga-Fang in February. The trio leaves March 18 with fellow locals Yuppies on a nine-date tour that will take them down to Austin, Texas and back. The tour includes dates in Memphis, Chicago and St. Louis.
