The Gotobeds sign to Sub Pop; tour w/ Protomartyr starts soon (updated dates ++ win tix to BV-presented show at The Wick)
Apr 1, 2015 12:41pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

the deal is done...

Pittsburgh's The Gotobeds have signed with Sub Pop who say "keep your ears open for new music in the near future." That's them signing their life away, above. If you haven't checked out 2014's Poor People Are Revolting, which came out on Gerard Cosloy's 12XU label, here's what I wrote about my #5 LP of last year:

From the title down, Poor People are Revolting is attitude-heavy, snarling, railing-against-everything punk-informed indie rock. The Gotobeds (featured a couple members of Kim Phuc) play like Protomartyr's smartass younger cousins, armed with punny titles, big hooks, shouty choruses and a love of The Fall. If you dig Protomartyr and Parquet Courts, this is essential listening.
You can stream The Gotobeds album below.

Next week is the start of The Gotobeds' tour with Protomartyr (who made my #1 album of 2014), which hits NYC for the BrooklynVegan-presented show at The Wick on April 15 with Grooms on the bill as well. That's a great show! Tickets are still available, but if you'd like to go for free we're giving a couple pairs away. Details below.

Protomartyr, meanwhile, will head to Toronto after the Protobeds tour to open for METZ at their two hometown release shows celebrating their new LP (part of Candian Music Week 2015). All dates for ...



Teklife meets Treated Crew on Live From Your Mommas House; EP was brainchild of DJ Rashad
Apr 1, 2015 12:36pm | Fact Magazine

Two of Chicagos finest crews collide on collaborative EP.

Pitchfork reports that before he died, footwork legend DJ Rashad met with rapper Mic Terror to outline a plan for Live From Your Momma’s House, an EP of collaborations between the Teklife and Treated crews.

The EP is coming soon; for a taste of what to expect, listen to DJ Phil and Mic Terror’s ‘Free.99′ below. Mic Terror wrote all the lyrics on the EP, and Teklife regulars DJ Spinn, DJ Earl, Taso, DJ Taye, and DJ Gantman provided production.

“We created a new genre with this, I’m not sure what to call it yet but if hear somebody else do it just know they biting MY shit,” says the rapper. Along with Mic Terror, Treated includes Mano, Sulaiman and G.O.O.D Music signee Holt (who we interviewed at SXSW).

Preview A Previously Unreleased White Stripes Recording From Third Man Records Latest Vault Package
Apr 1, 2015 12:26pm | StereoGum
Every once in a while, Jack White's Third Man Records will take some older music and make vinyl art-objects out of it, sending the results out to whoever subscribes to its Vault Package series. The latest Vault Package is given over to Loretta Lynn's 2004 album Van Lear Rose. White produced the country legend's comeback album and duetted with her on "Portland, Oregon," and the Vault Package will include a fancily pressed new vinyl version of the album, including unreleased song "Just To Have You Back." It'll include a recently filmed DVD documentary about the album, which includes Lynn and White reminiscing about it. And it'll also include a 7" of two unreleased White Stripes cover of Loretta Lynn songs. A studio version of Lynn's 1973 classic "Rated X" was originally intended to be the flip of the band's famous cover of Dolly Parton's "Jolene." And there's also a live cover of Lynn's "Whispering Sea," recorded at the Gorge Amphitheater in 2005. Below, listen to a quick clip of that "Rated X" cover and watch a live video of the band covering the song in Detroit in 2001.

Surfing wield repetition like a weapon on their addictive new album for 1080p
Apr 1, 2015 12:17pm | Fact Magazine

Surfing lock into hypnotic and deeply satisfying looping house on their self-titled LP.

When New York producer Peter Segerstrom isn’t working under the name Portable Sunsets, he’s building repetitive walls of groove as Surfing. His self-titled LP will be out next week through the eternally charismatic label 1080p, but we have it available to stream below.

Most tracks find Seferstrom jumping in on a house beat while repeating the titular phrase or word until it’s meaning and structure melt away. This mantra-like repetition continues like a good Axel Willner track or maybe more like Sideshow Bob stepping on rakes in the Simpsons — it’ll intrigue at first, repeat until you get sick of it, and then crucially keep going until it reaches a kind of transcendence. Tracks like ‘BBC’ and ‘Surfing’ commit to that mode, but Surfing has a few extra tricks to mix things up. ‘She’s Not Laughing’ is a deep, beautiful instrumental that pulls static pulses down into underwater ambience, while back-half highlight ‘Glass Eye’ finds Segerstrom letting his echo-y murmurs tell just the impression of a story to wonderfully unsettling affect.

Listen to all of Surfing below and grab it April 8 via 1080p.

10 Best Music Videos of March 2015
Apr 1, 2015 12:09pm | Chart Attack
These are the best music videos of March 2015: an instant classic from Killer Mike and El-P, the YouTube homecoming of Grimes, an animation masterclass and more. Watch all our favourites below.

Run The Jewels, "Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)"

For the angriest cut on an album full of rightly angry cuts, RTJ throw a curveball. This could have been revolution a torched police car, vigilante justice but months removed from the fieriest flashpoints, a battle cry seems unnecessary, insensitive even. Now we need to sustain a dialogue.

Grimes,"REALiTi"

Vogueing through jungles, temples and neon-burnt streets, you get the sense that Grimes thrives by soaking in the colour literally, metaphorically wherever she might be.

QT, "Hey QT"

This is pretty much it: starkly bright pinks and whites, self-consciously blank dance routines, and a retro-futuristic vibe that I think I last saw in an Eiffel 65 video. Sold!

Dan Deacon, "When I Was Done Dying"

Dan Deacon's hyper-charged computer-fi electronic music lends well to animation. If you've ever taken a close listen to his lyrics, sometimes they don't make the most sense, yet one brave team of 9 animators (including Chad VanGaalen) tackled the song individually to create a morphing, twisted, sometimes literal, and eyegasmic journey into the most confusing and best ...


Video : Pinact : Anxiety
Apr 1, 2015 12:08pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Full of fuzz and abrasive guitar riffs, Glasgow, Scottland duo Pinact are ready to turn the volume up on music with their debut album, Stand Still and Riot, out on May 19th via Kanine Records. With the announcement, they have shared the video for the scuzzy yet melodic “Anxiety” shot late at night at a friends flat in Glasgow. Watch below.

Haleek Maul Kingdom Come
Apr 1, 2015 11:56am | StereoGum
Haleek Maul teams with producer Shy Guy again -- along with D.K.A.D -- for another cut off his forthcoming project Prince Midas. On "Kingdom Come" the Barbadian bends his exultant, piercing flow in praise of eternal partying. But there's some hesitation here: "It's been so long since I heard my own thoughts," goes the chorus closing line, implying that a 24/7 hedonism has some drawbacks after all. The production here is a roiling clink of TNGHT-esque booming brass and beat moments, and slanting, AutoTuned backing vocals frame the 18-year-old's rapping. Listen below.
