Director Mark Pellington Details His Falling Out With Trent Reznor
Sep 19, 2014 11:50am | StereoGum

Mark Pellington is a music video director most famous for doing Pearl Jam’s iconic “Jeremy” clip. He also directed the movies Arlington Road and The Mothman Prophecies, and more recently, he worked with Chelsea Wolfe on her short film Lone. In 1999, Nine Inch Nails hired him to make the video for “We’re In This Together,” the first single from their double album The Fragile. But when they were done shooting the video, Pellington and Reznor disagreed over which edit of the video to release. Both ended up putting out their own versions, and they haven’t spoken since. Pellington described the whole affair in a recent column for Alternative Nation; read some highlights below.


Watch Kurt Vile Jam With The War On Drugs In Philly
Sep 19, 2014 11:48am | StereoGum

I saw the War On Drugs in concert Wednesday night in Columbus, and it was rad in its own right. (Who’d have thunk a pit full of kids would be moshing and crowdsurfing to “Red Eyes“? Who’d have thunk this band even counts anyone under 30 in its fan base?) But do you know what would have been even radder? Seeing the band rock an intimate venue in their hometown alongside former member Kurt Vile. Vile, who famously was a member of the War On Drugs before either he or they ascended prominence, joined Adam Granduciel and company for several songs last Friday in a “special secret show” at relatively tiny Philadelphia bar Johnny Brenda’s. Philly radio station WXPN has photos from the show, and they shared some excellent videos of “Under The Pressure,” “Arms Like Boulders,” and “Hear You Calling” by videographer Joe Burns, each one with Vile hunched over in the corner of the stage. There’s also footage of “Red Eyes,” which didn’t feature Vile, just because it rocks. Honestly, Vile’s involvement is pretty negligible here, and you can barely even tell it’s him down noodling away down there, but seeing the War On Drugs at the peak of their powers is reason enough to watch all four clips below.

Listen: Porches – “Prism”
Sep 19, 2014 11:45am | CMJ

Porches, the NYC-based project of Aaron Maine, knows a thing or two about good jokes—check Maine’s mannequin-swiped outfit at our recent CMJ Artist Announcement Party. But there’s no goofin’ around in this new single. In Prism, textures abound, from braided harmonies to scratchy sighs, jittery hi-hats to hollowed-out synths. The track, originally demoed for a Porches full-length, will now be released as a two-track single called Ronald Paris House on Terrible Records, with the Frankie Cosmos-featuring b-side Forgive. Listen to Prism (via The Fader) below.

Ben & Jerrys may rename Led Zeppelin ice cream Hazed & Confused amid customer complaints
Sep 19, 2014 11:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this year, Ben & Jerry’s launched “Hazed & Confused”, a new ice cream flavor inspired by Led Zeppelins classic “Dazed and Confused”.

Although most customers have enjoyed its fudge chips and hazelnut core, some have found its name problematic and even downright insensitive for allegedly making “light of student hazing.” As a result, the company is considering renaming the flavor altogether, The Huffington Post reports.

Since the launching of the product in February, Ben & Jerry’s has received a total of four complaints. The Kowiak family, whose son died during a college hazing ritual in 2008, was especially “shocked and [...] dismayed” upon hearing about “Hazed & Confused”.

While the creamery has decided to discuss a possible name-change next month, they’re also quick to note that the flavor was “never intended to have any association with hazing.” “The ice cream contains hazelnuts, so it was always meant as a pop culture reference to ‘Dazed and Confused'”, spokesman Sean Greenwood told The Huffington Post.

He added, “Ben & Jerry’s believes that hazing and bullying have no place in our society. No individual, group, or entity should benefit by marginalizing others.”

A change in name is on the table, but it’s not hard to imagine the company having to alter th...

Gwar Spare Dave Grohls Life Thanks To His Oderus Urungus Tribute
Sep 19, 2014 11:31am | StereoGum

A few months ago, Richmond, Virginia locals launched a crowdfunding campaign to bring the Foo Fighters to their town. It worked, and last night, the band played the local club the National. During the show, Dave Grohl dedicated a song to local thrash legends Gwar and to Dave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus, the Gwar frontman who died earlier this year. Grohl also told a story: One about being a kid and going, absolutely unprepared, to a Gwar show in Richmond. (It sure sounds like it was the band’s Halloween 1986 show in Schafer Court at VCU, a locally infamous show.) He also told a story about how Brockie, in an interview, once claimed that Grohl had had teeth removed “so he can fit more Grammy dicks in his fucking mouth.” In response, Gwar member JizMak The Destroyer posted a video, claiming that he’d gone to the show intending to kill Grohl but that, because he said something nice about Oderus, he’d spare Grohl’s life “this time.” Watch the videos of Grohl’s Brockie dedication and JizMak’s response below.

Sep 19, 2014 11:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

HAIM has announced a limited-edition picture disc of their latest single, “My Song 5″, and it’s quite the nifty little design. The vinyl comes in the shape of Alana Haim, with her arms and legs stretching well beyond the vinyl’s outer edges.

Due out October 27th, the picture disc includes the ASAP Ferg-aided remix of “My Song 5″ as its B-side. Pre-orders are now ongoing.

Listen to the remix below.

Iceage How Many
Sep 19, 2014 11:17am | StereoGum

I’ve heard people compare Iceage’s new Plowing The Fields Of Love to the Mekons’ 1985 classic Fear And Whiskey, but when I listen to it, the album I’m reminded of most is the Libertines’ self-titled second record. That resemblance is most apparent in Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s vocals, which share many qualities with those of Pete Doherty. I think you can really hear that in new single “How Many,” which is the third track on Plowing The Fields Of Love, and which you can spin right now. Listen below, let me know what you think.


Absolutely Free Visions
Sep 19, 2014 11:15am | StereoGum

Absolutely Free’s newest song begins with a warbled old-timey tune, a radio dial fading in and out on the band’s wide away of influences. But when “Vision’s” finally kicks in, it sounds completely modern — sure, they’re music is rooted in the past, but this song sounds urgent and of the now. Coupled with the sprightly “Beneath The Air,” Absolutely Free is showing a dynamic range that should serve them well on their upcoming debut album. Listen below.


Check Out Cass McCombs Protest Song & Jarvis Cockers Essay For The Peoples Climate March
Sep 19, 2014 11:14am | StereoGum

The People’s Climate March, the largest climate change rally in history, is happening this Sunday, 9/21 in New York, and various musicians are playing a part. For instance, Cass McCombs teamed with the Chapin Sisters for a gleaming old-fashioned folk singalong simply entitled “Protest Song.” Over hand-strummed campfire chords, McCombs and the Chapins harmonize on such pointed questions as “I wonder how?” and I wonder who?” and “I wonder when?” You can stream or download it below.
