Princess Molly (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 15, 2014 8:59am | StereoGum

Princess is a band from Dublin that plays an especially earthy brand of dream-pop, seemingly culled from both the soil and the stars. “Molly,” their new single, does not sound like a song about the ever-popular party drug. Rather than ecstatic, it’s an ethereal slow drift that uses almost eight minutes to get its point across — think Beach House with Mazzy Star’s casual sense of pace. Listen below.

Sea Oleena releasing a new LP (stream two tracks)
Sep 15, 2014 8:59am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Sea Oleena is set to release a new album, Shallow, on September 30 via Lefse and she's just put out a new single from it, "Paths." The song's not unlike the dream folk of Marissa Nadler but with even more ambience worked in. It follows previous single "If I'm," a more upbeat, electronic-tinged song with a pretty funky bassline as far as Sea Oleena's songs go. Both tracks are pretty different, and you can hear them for yourself below. No dates announced yet, but hopefully soon.

Stream Tweedy Sukierae
Sep 15, 2014 8:58am | StereoGum

Tweedy, the new band that Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy formed with his drummer son Spencer, haven’t yet released their debut album Sukierae, but they haven’t exactly been withholding, either. Over the past few months, the band has shared nearly half of the new album: “I’ll Sing It,” “Summer Noon,” “Wait For Love,” “Diamond Light Pt. 1,” “Fake Fur Coat,” “Low Key,” “High As Hello,” “Flowering.” From those songs, a picture emerges of a laid-back, comfortable, low-stakes take on the Wilco sound. But there’s plenty more where that came from. There are 20 songs on Sukierae, and now you can stream the whole thing and get a better sense of how it all fits together over at NPR.

Sukierae is out 9/23 on Wilco’s dBpm label.





The New Pornographers drummer Kurt Dahle leaves the band

Kurt Dahle w/ The New Pornographers @ The Brill Building (more by Chris La Putt)

Not the best known member of The New Pornographers, but drummer Kurt Dahle was maybe the most fun to watch live, making funny faces while dropping fills, never missing a beat. With that it's sad news that the band posted on their Facebook over the weekend:

Kurt Dahle is leaving the New Pornographers. It has been a great 15 years playing with an amazing drummer, singer and performer. We wish him the best.

Everything is still full steam ahead with the band and we look forward to continued rocking and singing of songs.

Well that is a bummer. Dahle was with them just ten days ago when they played The Brill Building. Kurt, we'll miss seeing those faces when The New Pornographers' fall tour hits NYC in November.

No word on his replacement yet. (Jon Wurster, what are you doing this fall?) Video of Dahle behind the kit from earlier this summer, below...

SBTRKT unveils new single Look Away with an interactive video that follows your gaze
Sep 15, 2014 8:44am | Fact Magazine

The latest clip to accompany SBTRKT’s upcoming album Wonder Where We Land is an interactive experience. 

Aaron Jerome’s haunting new single features Chairlift vocalist Caroline Polachek (who sat down with FACT a few months ago) and follows the premiere of ‘Voices In My Head’, a collaboration with Warpaint and A$AP Ferg. ‘Look Away’ is similarly introspective and is accompanied by an interactive video that makes use of your computer’s webcam. The immersive clip invites viewers to ”attempt to catch the gaze of a mysterious figure whilst she tries to avoid yours.” Visit the website here or stream the single below.

Wonder Where We Land is released on September 29 via Young Turks.

Australian band Step-Panther are 'Strange But Nice' on new LP (stream a song)
Sep 15, 2014 8:37am | Brooklyn Vegan

by BIll Pearis

Sydney, Australia trio Step Panther have been around since the late '00s, making crunchy guitar pop with big hooky choruses and punky oomph. The group are set to release their new album, Strange But Nice, on September 19. Step-Panther show off their janglier side with new single "Candy In The Sky," which is no less catchy or anthemic for lack of fuzz. The song makes its premiere in this post and you can stream it below.

Audioslave members reunite for first live performance in seven years
Sep 15, 2014 8:28am | Cosequence Of Sound

Audioslave singer Chris Cornell and guitarist Tom Morello will soon reunite on-stage for the first time since the band broke up in 2007.

As Blabbermouth points out, Cornell will join Morello for a benefit concert supporting 15 Now, a grassroots organization that seeks to raise the minimum wage to $15. The concert is set for September 26th at the El Corazon in Cornell’s hometown of Seattle.

Following the breakup of Audioslave, Morello, along with bassist Tom Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk, reunited with Zack de la Rocha to reunite Rage Against the Machine. Meanwhile, Cornell has spent the last several years fronting a reinvigorated Soundgarden.

In April 2013, both Cornell and Morello participated in an-all star tribute to Rush as part of their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Below, watch Audioslave perform “Like A Stone” as taken from their 2005 DVD, Live in Cuba.



Stream Leonard Cohen Popular Problems
Sep 15, 2014 8:21am | StereoGum

Leonard Cohen turns 80 next week, and he remains cooler than any of us. On his birthday, the poetic rock eminence will follow up his quiet 2012 stunner Old Ideas with a new album called Popular Problems. Cohen produced and co-wrote the LP with the frequent Madonna collaborator Patrick Leonard, who also worked on Old Ideas, and the LP pulls the same trick that Cohen has pulled on his last few albums, pairing up his grave and gravelly voice with weirdly chintzy synth settings. We’ve already posted the early track “Almost Like The Blues,” which is almost like Tom Waits, and now you can stream the entire album at NPR.

Popular Problems is out 9/21 on Columbia.





Peter Gutteridge (The Clean, The Chills), RIP
Sep 15, 2014 8:20am | Brooklyn Vegan

Peter Gutteridge @ Palisades 9/1/2014 (via @brooklynvegan instagram)

We are greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Peter Gutteridge today.

Peter was a Flying Nun original, a founding member of The Clean, The Chills and of course his own brilliant band Snapper. A great talent, he was also member of the Great Unwashed, involved in many Dunedin bands and went on to release beautiful solo material across the years.

All of us, and so many people around the world, have been touched and affected by his music, whether it be the swirling fuzz of the guitar or haunting piano melodies, Peter was a true hero of New Zealand music, and will be deeply missed.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends at this very sad time.

Thank you Peter for all the music, may you rest in peace.

-Flying Nun Records

Very sad news indeed. Gutteridge just played his first-ever US show two weeks ago at Palisades in Brooklyn. Rest in peace, Peter.

SBTRKT teams with Chairlifts Caroline Polachek for Look Away watch
Sep 15, 2014 8:11am | Cosequence Of Sound

SBTRKTs new album, Wonder Where We Land, features a bevy of collaborations that each touch upon a different emotion or aesthetic.

On “New Dorp.New York”, he and Vampire Weekends Ezra Koenig pay a wacky tribute to the Big Apple; the Sampha-aided “Temporary View” is more straightforward and soulful; Warpaint brings out the producers baser tendencies on “War Drums”; “Higher” succeeds because SBTRKT finds an ally in the cutting and jagged in up-and-coming MC Raury; and the addition of ASAP Ferg on “Voices In My Head” adds a more manacling quality to the Warpaint-SBTRKT dynamic.

For his latest collaboration, the man otherwise known as Aaron Jerome teams with Chairlift singer Caroline Polachek for “Look Away”. Perhaps of all the collaborators thus far, Polachek may be the best suited creatively. Theres a skittishness and theatricality to her croon that works brilliantly with this specific production, a kind of Victorian-folk-meets-80s-horror-soundtrack of warped, looping piano, jarring drum claps, and swirling effects. Its totally beautiful and utterly beguiling … right until the sense of impending doom smacks you square in the face.

And speaking of horror movies, the accompanying video is just as frightening. Using your web cam, the interactive clip allows users to try and make eye contact with a shadowy, doll-like creature as it attempts to glance back. Gi...


Robyn Hitchcock released new LP, touring, playing Eugene Mirman Comedy Fest & City Winery (dates, streams)
Sep 15, 2014 8:08am | Brooklyn Vegan

For Robyn Hitchcock's new album, The Man Upstairs, he worked with legendary British folk producer Joe Boyd (Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, Etc). Boyd suggested that Hitchcock make "a Judy Collins album," such as Elektra would have released in in the late '60s, with a mix of originals and covers, all in a spare acoustic style that showcases Hitchcock's skill with the frets and his nicely aged voice. Among the covers are versions of The Doors' "The Crystal Ship" and a particularly lovely take on The Psychedelic Furs' "The Ghost in You." You can stream that and the whole album below.

Robyn will be on tour this fall, including a stop at New York's City Winery on November 10. Tickets are on sale now. Before that, Robyn will be in New York this week for the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, appearing as part of the Pretty Good Friends show at The Bell House on Saturday (9/20). That's sold out though you can still buy the Eug Express Lane VIP packages that get you +1 into everything.

All Robyn Hitchcock tour dates are listed, along with the stream of his album, below...

The Neptune Album Prize - 2014's 12 Shortlisted LPs Revealed
Sep 15, 2014 8:08am | Drowned In Sound

The Neptune is back! 12 Great British Albums! New Judges! Streams! And more!

The Neptune album prize started as a reaction but has become an annual 'thing'. At first it was a response to the annual Mercury Music Prize overlooking some of our countries finest acts (in our opinion, etc, etc) right at the moment when it seemed like they were on the verge of a breakthrough. There's been a certain pang of 'WTF' to the Mercury award over the years, as it was originally setup to help left of centre treasures gain wider recognition, including artists who have already sold bucketloads... then again, perhaps the years when there have been the likes of Bowie, Plan B and M People were the years when the British Public have been more engaged in the award, but you could easily also argue the opposite. People love to argue.

We can't remember whether it was the exclusion of Foals or Wild Beasts or Fuck Buttons or someone beloved of our readers and writers alike, but we thought 'screw it, let's have our own list!' So we did. It started out as the Pluto prize, but we decided after the first few years to call it The Neptune, instead. Because it's to do with the god of the sea, rather than associations with a cartoon dog...

Over the years, the acts we love have had Mercury nods (Wild Beasts, Bat for Lashes, Burial, Villagers, Field Music, etc; Jon Hopkins and Foals last year; and Youth Fathers this year), but there have still been raised eye brows when the list i...
