Mark Kozelek releasing a Christmas album; 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' celebrating 50th anniversary at The Met
Oct 23, 2014 1:42pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Sun Kil Moon at Pitchfork 2014 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

War on Drugs fan Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon, Red House Painters) is releasing another album this year, a Christmas album called Sings Christmas Carols, due out November 4 on his own Caldo Verde label. The album features his take on "Christmas Time Is Here," the Vince Guaraldi-penned song from A Charlie Brown Christmas. You can stream it over at Pitchfork, where they also point out it includes a reworking of the classic special's wry dialogue: "Mark, you're the only person I know who can take a wonderful season like Christmas and turn it into a problem....of all the Mark Kozeleks in the world, you're the Mark Kozelek-iest."

Meanwhile, A Charlie Brown Christmas turns 50 this year and its anniversary will be celebrated in NYC with live music from Rob Schwimmer and Mark Stewart, joined by the Church of the Heavenly Rest Children's Choir. The performances happen at The Met on December 20 & 21 with two each day, 11 AM and 1:30 PM on 12/20 and 2 PM and 4 PM on 12/21. "Following the screening of the film, a festive holiday sing-a-long will be led by Mark Stewart." Tickets for all four are on sale now.

Sounds Australia: Immigrant Union, Damen Samuel, Emma Russack, Karl S. Williams @ Santos Party House: October 22, 2014
Oct 23, 2014 1:39pm | CMJ


Sounds Australia packed two stages at Santos Party House last night. While Tkay Maidza rocked the main stage, the downstairs stage got a little more intimate with minimal sets from the likes of Caitlin Harnett, Demi Louise, Emma Russack and Damen Samuel. A captivated crowd sitting on the floor soon turned into a high energy Aussie affair.

Oct 23, 2014 1:19pm | Fact Magazine

The Manchester-based producer heads to the US this winter.

Compa is one of the young producers that is helping keep dubstep alive with a sound indebted to the early Mala, Loefah and Skream tracks that defined the genre.

After wrapping up a few dates in the UK and Europe, Compa will head to the states for a 7-date tour sponsored by Feel Like It Clothing. The tour flyer is below, and for a taste of what to expect, check out his FACT mix made almost entirely from his own productions.


Carpark: Saint Pepsi, Popstrangers, Dog Bite, Chandos @ Mercury Lounge: October 22, 2014
Oct 23, 2014 1:18pm | CMJ

Carpark Records’ official CMJ Music Marathon 2014 showcase was last night at Manhattan’s Mercury Lounge. Carpark showcasing artists were all over the musical map, and the late-night show boasted some energetic pop-punk from Boston’s Chandos, smooth electro-pop courtesy of Dog Bite, a blistering set from angular New Zealand guitar band Popstrangers and a midnight set of Saint Pepsi’s future funk before special guests Young Magic took the stage.

CMJ day 2 pics: Girlpool, Nai Harvest, Ultimate Painting, Be Forest, Literature, September Girls, Ocean Blue & more

Girlpool / Nai Harvest / September Girls / Ultimate Painting

The CMJ week day party action picked up on Wednesday (10/22) and Ludlow St is still a safe bet, as is the now-annual Kanine party at Pianos, which this year was co-sponsored by fellow indie label Slumberland and SESAC. A good portion of the BV staff was there -- we posted Flowers pictures already, and pics of the rest of the day are in this post.

Glasgow's Pinact started the day downstairs. Partially due to their two-piece set up and anthemic fuzz rock, it's been easy to compare them to Japandroids, but live they sounded a bit more like early Nirvana (his hair-covered face may have been part of this too). They were good, and definitely sounded full for a two-piece.

I missed SEOUL upstairs but caught the next act there: another two-piece rock band from across the Atlantic, the UK's Nai Harvest. Though he was going through two guitar amps and a bass amp, I noticed the lack of low end a little more with these guys, but they still put on a good show. Some of their songs (like "Hold Open My Head" and "Buttercups") have enough hooks to compete with the '90s indie rock bands they're obviously influenced by, so it'll be interesting to see where Nai Harvest go next. They played a couple new ones and said a new LP is coming n...


Against the Clock: Brassica
Oct 23, 2014 12:48pm | Fact Magazine

Against the Clock is a series on FACT TV where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. You can watch all the past episodes here.

Next up for the challenge: London synth artist Brassica (aka Michael Anthony Wright), who has spent the last few years exploring left-field electronics for the likes of Dissident and Civil Music.

On November 10, he’ll release his debut album, Man is Deaf, via Civil Music (pre-order it here). Until then, see what he comes up with 10 minutes and a handful of gear that includes a discontinued Nord modular synth.


Watch Underworlds 20th Anniversary Mini-Documentary On Dubnobasswithmyheadman
Oct 23, 2014 12:45pm | StereoGum

British electronic wizards Underworld released their seminal record Dubnobasswithmyheadman in 1994, and in celebration of the album’s 20th anniversary, Rick Smith and Karl Hyde participated in a documentary about its creation. The two-part documentary includes performance footage and testimonial interviews, giving some insight into the process of creating Dubnobasswithmyheadman as well as an account of how Underworld translated the album to a live setting. Smith commented that Underworld prepared every bit of technology in advance to make sure it performed to its fullest capability, and that the group did not rehearse before taking the record to the stage. “It was all about the pressure of the moment, and the failing, and the recovery,” he said.

CMJ: Ryn Weaver @ Bowery Ballroom, 10/22/14
Oct 23, 2014 12:40pm | StereoGum

Chances are, if you read this site or anything about music on the internet, you heard about Ryn Weaver this summer. Back in June, Weaver appeared, seemingly apropos of nothing, on SoundCloud with “OctaHate,” a song that garnered considerable buzz because A) it’s a really great, infectious song, and B) the murderer’s row of people involved. Charli XCX co-wrote, Benny Blanco and Passion Pit mastermind Michael Angelakos and Cashmere Cat produced. And then Jessie Ware and Hayley Williams and Tom Krell of How To Dress Well all tweeted it. The whole thing made Weaver ascendant overnight, and also yielded criticism from writers and readers alike, with people assuming Weaver was nothing more than an industry creation, or a rich kid with connections. (It’s kind of amazing how worked up people still get about the former in 2014.) Weaver herself took to the Stereogum comments section to set it a bit straight, and later spoke to Chris for an Artist To Watch feature, in which they talked about how, while the arrival of Ryn Weaver was sudden and definite, she’d been kicking around and working on material under her real name, Aryn Wuthrich, and briefly as FemFemFem first.

U2 May Have Scrapped A Danger Mouse-Produced Album
Oct 23, 2014 12:39pm | StereoGum

Early in the year, we saw reports that U2 were teaming up with producer Danger Mouse for a full album, one that was expected in April. They teamed up for the 2013 soundtrack song “Ordinary Love” and the free-giveaway single “Invisible.” And then the album never came out. When U2 did pull off their surprise release of Songs Of Innocence a few months later, Danger Mouse was in the credits a lot, but he was far from the sole producer, and those two previously released songs weren’t on the album. And based on what the band and their collaborators told Rolling Stone in a new profile, the band may have scrapped an entire Danger Mouse-produced album, one that sure seems like it was far along the way to completion.

Moodymann, Jeff Mills and Borderland added to Torinos Movement Festival
Oct 23, 2014 12:39pm | Fact Magazine

Torino’s edition of the legendary Movement Festival is only a few days away, but they’re still confirming new additions to the lineup.

This week they’ve added a handful of bona-fide legends – Moodymann, Rick Wilhite, Jeff Mills and Juan Atkins and Moritz von Oswald‘s Borderland project. If you’re as bonkers about classic house and techno as we are, you’ll know what a big deal it is to have all these guys playing on the same line-up.

It’s not as if Movement needed it either, there’s already a stonking selection of artists, from Skream and Steffi to Karrenn and Ellen Allien (who incidentally just told FACT about her favorite record).

You can take a peep at the flyer below, and make sure you head here for tickets.

CHVRCHES Under The Tide Video
Oct 23, 2014 11:54am | StereoGum

CHVRCHES’ debut album, The Bones Of What You Believe, came out more than a year ago, but presumably due to their inclusion on the newly reimagined Drive soundtrack, as well as the new Hunger Games soundtrack, the Scottish electro-pop trio is once again promoting The Bones Of What You Believe via a new video. Unlike the majority of CHRVCHES songs, “Under The Tide” has Martin Doherty singing lead vocals. The visuals combine anime cartoons with a TRON-like geometric, computer-generated landscape. The video is also interspersed with flashing images of the band, in particular Martin who is singing, to produce a highly stimulating aesthetic that mirrors the boisterous synthesizers in the track. Watch.

Panache: Reigning Sound, White Fence, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Shonen Knife @ Knitting Factory: October 22, 2014
Oct 23, 2014 11:46am | CMJ


Aussie psychedelics King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard were the tongue-twisting crowd favorite at Brooklyn’s the Knitting Factory last night, but their competition was solid: Reigning Sound brought the garage nostalgia, White Fence got raw and moody and Shonen Knife kicked out the jams.
