Nirvana's Krist Novoselic is 'Standing With Eddie Vedder and the Real Possibility of Peace'
Jul 25, 2014 10:20am | Brooklyn Vegan

Cubs fan Eddie Vedder made some controversial remarks this week about the conflict going on in Israel (and sang "Imagine" in response to critics). Fellow Seattle rocker Krist Novoselic, who in his own words is "Best Known For Playing Bass On All Those Nirvana Records", but "Can Get Into Wonky Politics," posted his own reaction earlier this week. If you missed it, it starts off:

Thank you Eddie Vedder for speaking up for peace in our world. Eddie has gotten some criticism over comments he made about the conflict between the Palestinians and Israelis. That situation has been messed up for so long, it is no wonder that even mentioning it is toxic. Let's face it, the relationship between the Palestinians and the Israelis is a disaster! I don't know how many times I have heard the same explanations and excuses and it matters not, there is a continuing catastrophe between those two peoples.
Read the rest with some videos at Krist's blog (where he also posted "Give Peace a Chance"), and check out his original, similar article that appeared in Seattle Weekly in 2009.

Gigan touring w/ Artificial Brain & Pyrrhon (who play Vitus with Tombs tonight)
Jul 25, 2014 10:15am | Brooklyn Vegan

Artificial Brain at Saint Vitus in January (more by Caroline Harrison)

Oodles of noodles are headed your way as three of tech death's most interesting young bands are hitting the road together. The tour, a model of modesty called the "Interstellar Intellect" tour, pairs Gigan, Pyrrhon and Artificial Brain and stops in NYC at Saint Vitus on 9/19. Tickets aren't on sale yet.

The three aren't strangers to NYC. Pyrrhon is based in Brooklyn, Artificial Brain on Long Island, and Gigan was last in town last October when they played a show with Pyrrhon. Invisible Oranges presented the Artificial Brain record release show back in May--be sure to catch them. The singer, who sports wrap-around rec-spec-style goggles and an (albeit small) chain and intersperses sci-fi babble in between songs (that's him up top), is fascinating to watch.

As mentioned, Pyrrhon are also playing Saint Vitus tonight (7/25) with Tombs, who are celebrating the release of their fantastic new album Savage Gold. Additional support is from Passage Between and the industrial/EBM project StatiqBloom, which is comprised of Fade Kainer of Batillus and Søren. Tickets here. Both Pyrrhon and Artificial Brain also play Long Island's Obnoxious Noise Fest in August.

Lil Wayne Is Launching A Sports Management Company And Cristiano Ronaldo Is His First Client
Jul 25, 2014 10:10am | StereoGum

Jay Z famously had to sell his minuscule share of the Brooklyn Nets in order to launch a sports management company and represent athletes such as baseball star Robinson Canó. Now TMZ reports that noted sports fanatic (and fellow Mr. Carter) Lil Wayne is launching a sports management company of his own, and Portuguese soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will be his first client. Apparently Weezy’s company will be collaborating with Lisbon-based PolarisSports, an affiliate of the global management agency CAA and GestiFute, the company of Ronaldo’s manager Jorge Mendes. Looks like Wayne’s people won’t be negotiating Ronaldo’s soccer contracts, but they’ll handle his US business affairs including branding, marketing, endorsement, and modeling deals. (Besides being FIFA’s reigning World Player Of The Year, Ronaldo is a meticulously styled global sex symbol.)

Stevie Nicks releasing "Songs From The Vault"
Jul 25, 2014 10:05am | Brooklyn Vegan

Fleetwood Mac fans have something new to ask Santa for this year:

Stevie Nicks will be releasing her highly anticipated new CD '24 Karat Gold -Songs From The Vault' October 7th on Warner Bros. Records which will include never-before seen Polaroid photos taken by Nicks throughout her career. A special Limited Edition Double Vinyl Album will be released on September 29th. Additionally, a Deluxe Photobook CD album will be available for fans, which includes two bonus tracks plus 48 pages of exclusive photos from Nicks' personal photo collection. Pre orders are available beginning August 5th. The artwork for 24 Karat Gold CD will include never-before-seen Polaroid photos taken by Nicks throughout her career. Produced by Dave Stewart, Waddy Wachtel and Stevie Nicks, the new album was recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles. 24 Karat Gold follows the release of her critically acclaimed 2011 CD "In Your Dreams."
Stevie says:
"Most of these songs were written between 1969 and 1987. One was written in 1994 and one in 1995. I included them because they seemed to belong to this special group. Each song is a lifetime. Each song has a soul. Each song has a purpose. Each song is a love story... They represent my life behind the scenes, the secrets, the broken hearts, the broken hearted and the survivors. These songs are the memories - the 24 karat gold rings in the blue box. These songs are for you."</...

Head In The Clouds: The Top 25 SoundCloud Tracks Of The Week
Jul 25, 2014 10:00am | CMJ

It seems like some of the biggest news this week came on Monday, in the form of Back To The Shack, the first new Weezer jam we’ve heard since 2010. But that track never appeared on SoundCloud, and so, as decorum dictates, it’s been purged from this list. There was still more than enough good stuff to go ’round, including Gap Dream’s new tour single, Joanna Gruesome’s nightmare twee tune, Ryan Hemsworth’s iPhone-sampling collab with UV Boi, Nicholas Nicholas’ echoey cassette track and more. Stream 25 of our favorite SoundCloud tracks in one big playlist below.

Air Release Vinyl-Only Museum Soundtrack
Jul 25, 2014 9:47am | StereoGum

The music made by the long-running French duo Air always sounded like it was meant to soundtrack something — and often, it was soundtracking something. Now the duo has composed a series of ambient recordings inspired by artwork in the Palais De Beaux Arts De Lille. Music For Museum (in a nice reference to Eno’s ambient classic Music For Airports) will play on speakers in one section of the museum, and is specifically inspired by four contemporary artists showing work there now: Linda Bujoli, Mathias Kiss, Xavier Veilhan, and Yi Zhou. You can pick up the vinyl-only release here via The Vinyl Factory, and read the track list below.


Basement releasing a new EP (stream it); tour w/ Pity Sex, Superheaven & Ovlov starts soon
Jul 25, 2014 9:47am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

The UK's Basement ended their 2-year hiatus earlier this year, and have since announced that they'll put out a new EP, Further Sky, next week (7/29) via Run For Cover. There's a definite love for the '90s on this three-song EP. There's the grungy Dinosaur Jr jangle of EP opener "Summer's Colour." "Jet" embraces the loud-quiet-loud dynamics of mid-90s alt-rock radio with a bit of Hum's space thrown in there. And to really show their love of the '90s, the final track is a mostly-straightforward (but a little grunged up) cover of Suede's "Animal Nitrate" off the Britpoppers' 1993 debut album. A full stream of the EP premieres in this post and can be listened to below.

As discussed, Basement are going on their first US tour since reuniting, which includes a run with support from Pity Sex, Superheaven and Ovlov. That run hits NYC on August 19 at Webster Hall. It's in the Grand Ballroom after being moved from the Studio and then to the Marlin Room. Tickets are still available. Other dates on the tour are with Cloakroom, who play NYC on their tour with Whirr in September.

EP stream, with the list of dates, below...

Bass Coast Music Fest bans Native American headdresses

a couple at Governors Ball 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Canadian electronic music festival Bass Coast issued the following statement this week:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

Hopefully music festivals not technically on "indigenous land" follow this fest's lead!

Bass Coast happens Aug 1-4, 2014 in Merrit, British Columbia with mostly acts we're not familiar with.

Listen: Lil Silva First Mark
Jul 25, 2014 9:10am | CMJ

Lil Silva – Photo by Laura Coulson

Lil Silva, aka TJ Carter, will drop a new EP, Mabel, on True Panther early next month. We’ve already heard the delicate, cold, R&B-inflected title track, but First Mark boasts a wholly different type of sound. A thick, ropey bassline opens things up, tinny, chaotic percussion scampers throughout and the track closes with a wordless, coo-ing chorus. It is now impossible to guess what the EP’s other three tracks will sound like. Listen below.

Duran Duran suing their fan club (not their fans)
Jul 25, 2014 9:03am | Brooklyn Vegan

Duran Duran issued the following statement yesterday:

Duran Duran value and respect their many fans around the world and feel compelled to correct the media's misrepresentation of its lawsuit against Worldwide Fan Clubs, Inc. The Band emphatically states that the lawsuit is not against its loyal fans but simply seeks to protect its rights against the company that formerly managed its fan club.

Duran Duran have now brought their official fan community in-house and continue to make every effort to provide the highest level of service.

You can stop freaking out now Duran Duran fan fans. Their old fan club has just, come undone...

Trap Them, Coliseum, White Widows Pact & Incendiary @ BK Night Bazaar (pics, video)

Trap Them / Coliseum @ BK Bazaar - 7/19/14

Before heading off to Deathwish Fest, Trap Them and Coliseum dropped into Brooklyn Night Bazaar on July 19 for a free show that also featured White Widows Pact and Incendiary. Trap Them are gigging around in support of Blissfucker, their new album out on Prosthetic Records. In his Invisible Oranges review, Rhys Williams said of the album:

Blissfucker, however, is now eternal, a testament to a singular moment of discord and loathing writ large for hardcore kids to play while punching holes through their bedroom walls for years to come. That moment, that time, there was nothing but rage. Rage and the familiar sound of that buzzsaw guitar, dragging discordant riffs across your veins.
And while punched-holes in the pics below are conspicuously absent, there's no doubt Brooklyn Night Bazaar patrons were hit with big buzzes of HM-2 rage.

Brooklyn's White Widows Pact opened the night with a blast of '90s-styled metalcore. They cut a self-titled EP in 2013, which they followed this year with a cover of "Negative Creep" that honored "...Nirvana's induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, their huge influence on our music, and our contemporaries." You can check that one out below. They were followed by Incendiary, whose style skews more t...

Watch Tori Amos Play Wild Way On Conan
Jul 25, 2014 8:54am | StereoGum

We have a couple of decades of evidence that good things happen when you point TV cameras at Tori Amos; witness, for instance, this video of Amos playing “Winter” on The Tonight Show is 1993 and reducing Jay Leno to a stuttering mess. Last night, she did it again, performing entirely solo (just her and her piano) on Conan and giving an emotionally intense performance of “Wild Way,” a conflicted love song from her new album Unrepentant Geraldines. Watch the video below.


Bölzer releasing 'Soma' (stream it)

Soma cover art

Bölzer might be bent on world domination, though they're doing it at their own pace. The Swiss/Kiwi blackened death duo are set to release their new EP Soma through Invictus Productions on August 5. The two-track offering caps a heck of a summer for the band who edged towards a true breakout after two fiery sets at this year's Maryland Deathfest. And now the internet is abuzz after Soma's full stream went up. You can check out Soma below.

Noisey's J. Bennett caught up with singer/guitarist KzR and asked him about a rumored full-length:

So you've completed the conceptual pairing with the two EPs. Where does that leave you for the full-length you're working on now?
We started writing new material over the last year or so. We write really slowly--well,I do. I like to give the material a lot of time to gestate and grow on its own terms, so it's important for me to start playing around with an idea and then put it on the backburner for however long until it rises of its own accord. The end result is usually a lot better that way. I don't like to force things. So we're working on a third song now. They're not all complete, but it's starting to take form. The intention is to make a not very long full-length. For me a perfect album length is like 40 minutes. We're not going to make an hour-long record. No way. It'll ...
