Crocodiles
May 28, 2015 2:13pm | StereoGum
San Diego's Crocodiles released their new LP, Boys, earlier this month, and we've already seen the brooding, antique-looking video for the first single, "Crybaby Demon." Today, we're premiering a visual accompaniment to the track "Hard." The Kelsey Henderson-directed video is a series of faded film clips of a bunch of punks acting, well, hard. More »

Prurient (aka Dominick Fernow) recently announced a tour opening for Godflesh for late summer/early fall, but Dominick will be playing shows sooner than that under his Vatican Shadow moniker. Those shows include a Nothing Changes party in NYC on June 14 at Home Sweet Home with Shifted, 400PPM and Dual Action. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All Vatican Shadow dates are listed below.

Prurient is also on a few festivals in addition to that Godflesh tour, including Hopscotch and Pop Montreal, and he was recently added to Pitchfork's NXNE show. The rest of that lineup is Vince Staples, Majical Cloudz, Tink, Jessica Pratt, Amen Dunes, Container, Sannhet, Rabit and Hvad.

The tour with Godflesh hits NYC on 9/15 at Warsaw, also with Regis on the bill. Tickets are still available. All Prurient and Vatican Shadow dates, with a stream from Prurient's new album, Frozen Niagara Falls, below...

Before he was best friends with David Letterman, before he was a Foo Fighter, before he was the drummer in Nirvana, before he was the drummer in Scream, Dave Grohl was the cute kid pictured above. That cute kid wrote a letter to Ian MacKaye when he was 14, asking the Minor Threat (and … More »



German punks Hysterese going on first US tour (listen)
May 28, 2015 1:43pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Germany's Hysterese have been around for about five years and have two albums out so far, one from 2013 and another from 2014 (both are self titled). The latter got a North American release through Dirt Cult Records, the same label who gave us other cool stuff like Big Dick and the Iron Chic / Low Culture split. You could accurately call them pop punk, but only in the same way you'd call The Marked Men or Tenement that. It's punchy and catchy, but it's also raw and has a dark side. They've got different vocalists bouncing off each other, kinda the way Dillinger Four or Hot Water Music do, but the chord progressions are more Bauhaus than HWM or D4. Stream both albums below.

According to Hysterese's past show archive, they've yet to make it over to the US, but that will finally change this June. The tour begins in Brooklyn on June 5 at The Place (259 Norman Ave) with locals Pleasure Industry and The Brass (mem Creeping Dose). That show starts at 8 PM, is $8 at the door, and all ages.

Some dates are still being confirmed, but Hysterese's current US tour schedule is below...

Lee Bannon

Shape-shifting producer Lee Bannon just sent over this melancholy and ominously woozy new track from his forthcoming new LP, the final record he will release under his own name (he will now go by ¬b, or “not Bannon”). Pattern of Excel is out in July on Ninja Tune:


The Fresh & Onlys

Watch the hilarious trailer for American Ultra, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart
May 28, 2015 1:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Well, here’s some kick ass news: Adventureland co-stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart will reunite once again for the action comedy American Ultra.

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), the story follows a stoner (Eisenberg) and his girlfriend (Stewart) whose boring, small town lifestyle gets a tad too heavy when a government operation steps in looking for vengeance. It’s the sort of batshit craziness we’re bound to champion — especially when the cast also includes John Leguizamo, Walton Goggins, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman, Topher Grace, and Tony Hale — and the new red band trailer all but spells out the word “FUN” in big, bright balloon letters. Watch below.

American Ultra hits theaters on August 21st via Lionsgate, making it the greatest birthday present this then-31-year-old can receive. In related news, Eisenberg and Stewart will re-team a third time for Woody Allen’s next yet-to-be-titled production. So basically, it’s a really good time for fans who like seeing the two of them on-screen together.



Frank Black Is Cool With Streaming Because iTunes Is Apparently Too Confusing
May 28, 2015 1:25pm | StereoGum
Frank Black spoke to The Daily Beast's James Joiner about the making of Pixies' forthcoming record, and inadvertently, about how confusing iTunes is. I get it. Every time my computer asks me if I want to update iTunes I angrily close the window like, "Hell no!" Each new format is less convenient than the last, … More »

Gorburger, the giant alien monster who took over a Japanese talk show so he could interview (and sometimes eat) musicians, may be moving to cable. And not some channel you've never heard of, either. Variety reports that HBO has ordered a pilot of the show which ran two seasons on YouTube/Funny or Die. That would make TJ Miller, who voices Gorburger, a busy guy as he also stars as Erlich on HBO's Silicon Valley. Moby, Ed Helms and Johnny Knoxville will be guests on HBO's The Gorburger Show pilot, along with musical guests Danny Brown and HEALTH (who are doing a song together), as well as Eagles of Death Metal.

We last saw Gorburger at one of the BrooklynVegan SXSW parties in 2013. You can watch a 2012 episode of his show featuring HEALTH, below...
