Bridget Everett - 'Rock Bottom' at Joe's Pub 9/12/2014

Mr. Shaiman, who pounds away at the piano keys during the show, and Mr. Wittman, who directed it, and her other collaborators, Adam Horovitz and Matt Ray, have not attempted to impose a demure superego on the rampaging id that is Ms. Everett. On the contrary, "Rock Bottom" lets her run as loose and sing as loud as ever, celebrating the louche life and flaunting her flair for exhibitionism -- sexual, emotional and physical -- across 90 minutes of hair-raising, jaw-dropping and, yes, sometimes cringe-making performance. This unbridled performer makes the breast-baring, mouthy Bette Midler of the 1970s seem like Julie Andrews trilling and twirling on that mountaintop in "The Sound of Music."

Ms. Everett performs 10 songs in the show, at least three of which feature titles that are not fit for print. One of the funniest finds her making sport of her own ample dimensions while using a festively colored sex toy of considerable size as a prop to help detail her rapacious exploits around the globe. - [NY Times]

Bridget Everett seems to be everywhere in NYC lately, with the official debut of her new show at Joe's Pub, Rock Bottom (which has been in previews for a while). In addition to the New York Times review, she was also on the cover of the 9/10 issue of The Village Voice. The very bawdy show, which als...

R.E.M.s 10 Best Cover Songs
Sep 18, 2014 12:06pm | StereoGum

From the looks of the R.E.M. setlist site, early R.E.M. gigs were glorified bar-band hootenannies. Before they’d written Murmur and Chronic Town, the band cut their teeth seemingly as philistines, playing sloppy, drunken versions of everything from Creedence to the Sex Pistols. Time passed, R.E.M. became more sophisticated, and their covers eventually became more immaculately chosen, providing an essential glimpse into the band’s background. The recent iTunes clearinghouse release of some 143 B-sides showcases many, but not all, of the band’s best covers. They can also be found on rare fan club-only 45s, 1988′s Dead Letter Office compilation, and occasionally one-off performances that would never be properly recorded, not even at a bootleg level.


Nancy Whang & Audiojack Like An Eagle (Dennis Parker Cover) Video
Sep 18, 2014 12:03pm | StereoGum

The former LCD Soundsystem member Nancy Whang is now half of the Juan Maclean, which means she’s largely responsible for In A Dream, your current reigning Album Of The Week. And on a new EP, she’s also tapping deep into dance music’s past. On The Nancy Whang Casablanca Reworks, Whang teams up with various dance-music producers to cover tracks that were released on Casablanca Records, a classic disco label that also had Kiss and Parliament on its roster. The EP opens with Whang and Audiojack taking on “Like An Eagle,” a 1979 disco nugget from Dennis Parker. In the video, we see images of various iconic New York landmarks as they drift out of focus. Check it out below.


Report: Lorde and Kanye West to collaborate on new music
Sep 18, 2014 11:58am | Cosequence Of Sound

Lorde and Kanye West have an age difference of 20 years, hail from entirely different parts of the globe, and are titans in two entirely different genres of music. Yet, as we’ve learned in recent months, the two musicians have a great deal of mutual admiration for one another. Lorde has covered Kanye’s tracks “Flashing Lights” and “Hold My Liquor” in concert, while Kanye told the 17-year-old pop star that he “liked the messages in my songs.”

If a collaborative track sounds like the logical next step, you would be correct. According to Page Six of The New York Post, Kanye and Lorde will soon enter the studio and collaborate on new music.

Kanye is also reported to be working with Paul McCartney on the follow-up to last year’s excellent Yeezus, meaning we could be in store for one very interesting album.

Below, revisit Lorde’s cover of “Flashing Lights” and “Hold My Liquor”.

Listen: Flying Lotus – “Coronus, The Terminator”
Sep 18, 2014 11:50am | CMJ

Flying Lotus is putting out a new record, You’re Dead, on Warp next month, and the build-up has been pretty exciting. Never Catch Me featured Kendrick Lamar sounding like angry fire, and Moment Of Hesitation recruited Herbie Hancock and Thundercat for a frantic and jazzy cut. But this new one’s all FlyLo. Coronus, The Terminator features supple, noir production with Flying Lotus singing in a voice like he’s just following some greater power. Listen to the song below.

Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson take home Americana Music Awards (full list of winners)
Sep 18, 2014 11:48am | Brooklyn Vegan

Jason Isbell @ Governors Ball (more by Dana (distortion Yavin)

Sturgill Simpson has not been shy when it comes to talking about Nashville not playing a part in his new-found success as a country singer, but Wednesday night Nashville recognized, as Simpson took home the award for best "Emerging Artist" at the 13th Annual Americana Music Honors & Awards (he beat Hurray For The Riff Raff and Valerie June). The ceremony took place at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, and the night's big winner was ex-Drive-By-Trucker Jason Isbell who won best Album, best Artist, and best Song (Robert Ellis and Rosanne Cash were also nominated in all three categories). Check out the full list of winners, and listen to that best song, below. Catch Isbell on tour with Damien Jurado next year.

Album Stream Premiere: Johnny Lewis – Johnny Lewis, Plus Q&A
Sep 18, 2014 11:35am | CMJ

Johnny Lewis is a New York City singer-songwriter, but it’s more complicated than that. He grew up in Minneapolis, and then moved to Colorado in 2008, where he enjoyed success as an electronic artist. His transformation into a truly remarkable American songwriter coincided with his move to New York, where he recorded his debut, self-titled album.

Johnny Lewis is a beautifully crafted twilight folk album, and CMJ has the pleasure of premiering an exclusive stream of the whole thing in advance of its September 23 release. It’s one of those records that takes hold of you gradually but firmly, an unstable, emotionally gratifying debut on par with those of the genre’s biggest names.

You can also catch Johnny performing at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon. See all his tour dates at the bottom of the page, and stream the album while you check out our conversation with Johnny about autobiographical songwriting, the many forms of breakups, and how this record came to be.

This record has been advertised a lot as a progressive dream folk record. Do you think your electronic background has a direct bearing on your approach to folk music?
I would say that it had to. I mean, I grew up on “folk music.” We’d sit in basements and listen to Dylan and Young all night long. We grew up feeling that music was forever. But we live in a time where the prevalence of electronic music in undeniable ...

Kimbra expands tour w/ Empress Of, playing collaborative set w/ Kneebody at LPR w/ Tiny Hazard (who have a new song)
Sep 18, 2014 11:31am | Brooklyn Vegan

Kimbra at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)

Over the summer, Kimbra announced a tour with Empress Of which hits NYC on November 6 at Bowery Ballroom. That show unsurprisingly sold out almost immediately, and the pair have now added a second NYC date happening a few days earlier at Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 3. Tickets for MHOW go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.

Kimbra will also be in NYC before that tour kicks off for a "special collaboration set" with local jazz band Kneebody at Le Poisson Rouge on September 26. Tickets for that show are on sale now too.

Opening the LPR show is NYC's Tiny Hazard. They're planning to release their debut album next year, but ahead of that they have a one-off single, "Silhouette," which premieres in this post. It's a kind of eccentric art pop that fans of St. Vincent, My Brightest Diamond or early Regina Spektor may dig. You can hear it for yourself below.

Listen: Zola Jesus – “Go (Blank Sea)”
Sep 18, 2014 11:15am | CMJ

Until last night we had only heard one track from Zola Jesus’ upcoming album Taiga, and that was the big, prophetic pop song Dangerous Days. Now Nika Roza Danilova has shared a second album single, Go (Blank Sea). In a press release, Danilova says the song is about the “facelessness of city life,” a feeling that’s portrayed here through soft-focus percussion and expansive, but uncertain vocals.

Zola Jesus will also appear at CMJ Music Marathon on a panel with John Norris next month. Until then, listen to Go (Blank Sea) below.

Song : Flying Lotus : Coronus, The Terminator
Sep 18, 2014 11:11am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Following the excellent jazz-infused “Never Catch Me” featuring Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus is sharing another track from new forthcoming LP titled “Coronus, The Terminator”. The song is a hazy, psych cut that almost feels more like an interlude than anything. Regardless, his new album, You’re Dead, might end up being his best and most ambitious work yet. Look for it on October 7th via Warp. Listen below.
