Jimmy Kimmel To Pair Morris Day With Haim, Weezer With ZZ Top On Mash Up Mondays
Jan 29, 2015 3:21pm | StereoGum

Starting next month, Jimmy Kimmel Live! will debut “Mash Up Mondays,” a new musical performance series that will pair two very different artists as a one-time-only supergroup. “Wee-Z Top” will kick off the series on Monday 2/2 — if you didn’t guess already, that’s a combination of “Weezer” and “ZZ Top.” 2/9 brings “Morris Day And The HAIM” (HAIM alongside Morris Day And The Time, of course), while 2/16 features a set by “Aloe Blaccstreet” (Aloe Blacc and Blackstreet). What other combinations do you guys have in mind? Vampire Weeknd? Kanye Westlife? The Black Eyed Keys?

Cabane Sangokaku Video
Jan 29, 2015 2:57pm | StereoGum

Cabane is the French word for cabin, but it’s also the moniker used by Belgian composer and songwriter Thomas Jean Henri, formerly of Soy Un Caballo. As the album artwork suggests, his music doesn’t have a thick-of-the-woods feel, but is more reminiscent of the light, transient nature of the beach. On his first release “Sangokaku,” Henri is joined by Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Kate Stables (of This Is The Kit) and Caroline Gabard on vocals. The track swoops between swathes of vocal harmonies, simple acoustic finger-picking, and string arrangements by Stereolab’s Sean O’Hagan. For the video, Henri and director Jerome Guiot recorded the reactions of his loved ones listening to the song for the first time. Their faces describe the song in a much more poignant way than I ever could, so watch it below.

Win a pair of tickets to Absolutely Frees belated album release blowout in Toronto
Jan 29, 2015 2:46pm | Chart Attack

Absolutely Free rarely repeat themselves. Whether they're playing a Jewish Community Centre swimalong or soundtracking the universe or paying tribute to the great NFB artist Norman McLaren (check back at Chart Attack tomorrow morning for some video evidence of that one), the Toronto three-piece craft their live shows as a here-in-this-space analogue to their hypnotizing, psychedelic krautrock.

So the fact that it's taken this long for the band to play a Toronto release show for their stunning self-titled debut (released back in October) isn't because they're lazy - they were just coming up with something unique enough to befit their hometown.

Drummer Moshe Rozenberg gives a play-by-play preview:

"U.S. Girls is opening; We're collaborating with Mike Haliechuk (Fucked Up), Joseph Shabason (DIANA) & Marcel Ramagnano to perform an even longer version of 'Spiral Jetty' (our album closer); Installation/Multimedia artist Dan Thornhill has created an interactive program/projection that will run throughout the night; The stage will be a recreation/installation of our album cover; The bartender's concocted some Absolutely Free cocktails ('Absolut-ly Freeze' & 'Spiral Jet-tea') &  more fun!"

Oh, and hey, we have a pair of tickets to give away!

Were giving away a pair of tickets to Absolutely Free's release party at Geary Lane. Heres how to win:<...


Follakzoid releasing new album (listen to a song)
Jan 29, 2015 2:35pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Chilean psych-rock band Föllakzoid will release III (yes, their third album) via Sacred Bones on March 31. Its four long tracks follow dark, minimal lines, locked grooves and spaced-out repetition. For the new album they also enlisted the help of German synth specialist Uwe Schmidt (who releases music as Atom and Señor Coconut) to help expand their universe. Zone out to the 12-minute opening track "Electric" below.

UPDATE: We originally posted that Föllakzoid would be at Austin Psych Fest Levitation this year, which is apparently unconfirmed. We hope it happens!

Courtney Barnett announces debut album, shares new song/video Pedestrian At Best watch
Jan 29, 2015 2:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett will release her debut album Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit on March 24th through Mom + Pop Records.

The 11-track effort follows 2013’s excellent The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas. Recording took place at Melbourne’s Head Gap Studio with accompaniment from her backing band

Barnett says the album “follows me as a normal human with normal emotions. So there are great highs and great lows. They span everything in my life.”

A preview of this “life-spanning” collection comes in the form of lead single “Pedestrian at Best”. With a grungy riff recalling “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, Barnett makes some astute and hilarious observations about relationships, with biting witticisms (“I think youre a joke but I dont find you very funny”). Check out the song below via its accompanying video, in which Barnett plays a sad clown.

Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit Tracklist:
01. Elevator Operator
02. Pedestrian at Best
03. An Illustration of Loneliness (Sleepless in NY)
04. Small Poppies
05. Depreston
06. Aqua Profunda!
07. Dead Fox
08. Nobody Really Cares if You Don’t Go to the Party
09. Debbie Downer
10. Kim’s Caravan
11. Boxing Day Blues

Courtney Barnett has steadily been rising off the strength of her two EPs, one of which came out in 2012, followed by the second in 2013, followed by a packaged release of them together that same year, and followed once more by a US release in 2014. Now she's finally ready to put out a proper full length, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit, which is due out March 24 via Mom + Pop. She just put out the clown-centric video for its rockin' first single "Pedestrian At Best," and it's only making this album seem more exciting. Check it out, with the artwork and tracklist, below.

She'll be at SXSW and Bonnaroo this year. Her full tour schedule is also below.

Courtney Barnett Pedestrian At Best Video + Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit Details
Jan 29, 2015 2:16pm | StereoGum

Today, Courtney Barnett announced that the follow-up to her 2013 release The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas will be a full-length LP entitled Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit. The record will be released by Mom + Pop. Barnett also shared the album’s excellent first single, “Pedestrian At Best,” along with an equally impressive video. In “Pedestrian At Best,” we find Barnett exactly where we left her, gleefully spitting mouthfuls of sneering disaffection: “Put me on a pedestal and I’ll only disappoint you/ Tell me Im exceptional I promise to exploit you/ Give me all your money and Ill make some origami, honey/ I think youre a joke but I dont find you very funny.” It’s fitting that director Charlie Ford put Barnett in a clown suit here. Watch “Pedestrian At Best” and check out the Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit tracklist below.

Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit tracklist:

01 “Elevator Operator”
02 “Pedestrian at Best”
03 “An Illustration of Loneliness (Sleepless in NY)”
04 “Small Poppies”
05 “Depreston”
06 “Aqua Profunda!”
07 “Dead Fox”

Foo Fighters cover Rushs Tom Sawyer in Rio de Janeiro watch
Jan 29, 2015 2:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Photo by David Brendan Hall

As Foo Fighters continue on their massive world tour, they aren’t able to bring along the string of A-listers that appeared during Dave Grohl’s rocking birthday extravaganza earlier this month. Instead, the band’s settled for dusting off the hits of those giants of rock.

During Sunday night’s concert at Rio de Janeiro’s Estadio Do Maracanã, Grohl and co. tackled the Rush classic “Tom Sawyer”. For many, Rush are untouchable in terms of covers, but Taylor Hawkins does the best Neil Peart he can with one-fifth the kit. Plus, the extra fury provided by three guitars helped the band rise to the challenge of this most epic prog anthem. Watch fan-shot footage below. (Ed. Note: Foo’s previously accompanied Rush in performing “Tom Sawyer” during their 2013 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.)

That wasn’t the only cover the Foos delivered for the Rio audience; KISS “Detroit Rock City” preceded the Rush cover, followed by “Stay With Me” by Faces and “Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie. You can watch the entire two-and-a-half hour performance — with “Detroit Rock City” starting at 1:44:00, “Stay With Me” at 1:53:10, and “Under Pressure” at 1:59:30 — and che...
