Philly's noisy post-hardcore bashers Pissed Jeans are working on a new album this year, and while we're still awaiting more details on that, we do know there's a few chances to catch them live. Among those chances is a stop in NYC for two shows at Baby's All Right on May 9 (early and late). Tickets for the 7:30 PM show with VEXX go on sale Friday (3/6) at 10 AM. Ticket info and more bands TBA for the other show.

All known dates (still more TBA) are listed, with a video, below...

The Helio Sequence announces new album, premieres Stoic Resemblance listen
Mar 2, 2015 4:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Oregon indie rockers The Helio Sequence will release their new self-titled album on May 19th via Sub Pop. The 10-track effort serves as their sixth to date and follows 2012’s Negotiations. It was produced and mixed by the band at Portland’s Old Jantzen Building, and later mastered by Greg Calbi (Father John Misty, Sleater-Kinney, The War on Drugs) at Sterling Sound.

According to a press release, the LP came to fruition following a friendly session of “The 20-Song Game”:

Songwriters would arrive in their studios at prearranged times and spend all day recording 20 complete songs. When they were finished, theyd have a party, listen to the results and talk about the process — of taking the good with the bad, of letting creativity push past constraint, of simply making music in the moment. Brandon Summers and Benjamin Weikel took the spirit of the The 20-Song Game to heart, and forged ahead writing a new record.

In May of 2014, inspired by the 20-Song Game, they began arriving each morning in their Portland space — housed in the cafeteria and break room of an old warehouse — with the mission of making as much music as possible in one month.

Our first preview of The Helio Sequence comes courtesy of “Stoic Resemblance”, a snappy and steadily groovin’ indie pop number. Listen in below via its mesmerizing visualizer.

Makthaverskan side project Westkust releasing debut LP on Run for Cover (stream a track)
Mar 2, 2015 3:59pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Last year, Swedish post-punks Makthaverskan signed to Run for Cover to release their great 2013 album II in the US, and earlier this year they followed it with a new single "Witness." Now, fellow Swedish band Westkust -- who count Gustav Anderson and Hugo Randulv of Makthaverskan as members -- have also signed to RFC, and they'll release their debut LP, Last Forever, this summer on the label. (It comes out 4/22 in Scandinavia via Luxury.) First single "Swirl" is out now, and it's got similar guitar lines to Makthaverskan, but it's more jangle pop than post-punk. Listen below.

Stream: Boots soundtrack to his short film Motorcycle Jesus
Mar 2, 2015 3:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Last week, mysterious producer Boots released a short film called Motorcycle Jesus. Now, the soundtrack to the 30-minute video is streaming in full below.

Spanning 22 minutes and five tracks, the soundtrack is presented as one complete SoundCloud song, though individual songs “Mercy” and “I Run Roulette” are currently available for purchase on iTunes. Said to feature contributions from El-P and Carla Azar, the full album will be released March 3rd via Canvasback/Atlantic.

Press for the album warns that, as is common practice for Boots, the short film and soundtrack “will likely disappear — as things tend to do in BOOTSs world — after an undetermined amount of time. Or maybe not.” Take a listen below.

Motorcycle Jesus OST Tracklist:
01. Mercy
02. I Run Roulette

Regal Degal releasing new LP, share new video, playing free NYC show this week & opening for The Pop Group at Bowery
Mar 2, 2015 3:36pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Regal Degal will release their new album, Not Now, on May 19 via Terrible Records. Label co-owner and Grizzly Bear member Chris Taylor co-produced the album with the band. The centerpiece of the album is "Pyramid Bricks" and the video for that song was recently released. Directed by Lily X, the Egyptian-themed video stars frontman Josh de Costa and model Abbey Lee. Says Josh:

This video was one of the first projects we took on shortly after relocating back to NYC. We'd just put out the Pyramid Bricks EP and met Lily and her cool crew, and we realized that we had no video to promote the release so it was a no-brainer collaboration. We would get together and draw inspiration from various movies and music videos; giallo films, the Mummy franchise, the Stranglers' "Golden Brown" video, and plenty of others were on the figurative vision board for this one. Once Abbey Lee Kershaw signed on we knew it was going to be a special production... Fast forward like a year later - we had re-recorded the song, which could've completely messed with everything, but its new dimensions seem to complement the video perfectly and vice versa
Check it out, along with LP art and tracklist, below.

The band have a couple NYC shows this month. They'll play a free show on Thursday (3/5) at Elvis Guesthouse in the East Village, and then they'll open for The Pop Group at Bowery Ballroom on March 17


Action Bronson teams with Chance The Rapper for Mark Ronson-produced Baby Blue
Mar 2, 2015 3:28pm | Fact Magazine

The latest single will appear on Bronson’s upcoming album Mr. Wonderful.

Last year Action Bronson announced his album Mr. Wonderful was not only finished, but also that “there is no music in the world today that is even near” it. That’s a question for when the album is out in full, but for now the Queens rapper has shared a new track called ‘Baby Blue’.

The track, produced by Mark Ronson, is a break-up jam featuring a very funny verse from Chance The Rapper listing off a creative list of ill-wishes towards his ex including the gem of an insult, “I hope you never get off work on Fridays and you work at a Fridays which is always busy on Fridays”.

Listen to it below and look for Mr. Wonderful on March 24 via Vice/Atlantic.

Stream: Cherubs first album in 20 years, 2 Ynfynyty

Austin cult noise rockers Cherubs are releasing their first album in 20 years, 2 Ynfynyty, on March 3rd via Brutal Panda Records. The LP is streaming in full below.

Originally signed to King Coffey of Butthole Surfers Trance Syndicate label, Cherubs dropped three LPs in the early 90s, including the twisted masterpiece Heroin Man in 1994. Although the band never enjoyed the success seen by the likes of Butthole Surfers or The Jesus Lizard, Cherubs built a small but dedicated following touring the DIY and underground circuit. Even today, their influence can be heard in the works of modern acts like Pissed Jeans.

Despite the long hiatus, 2 Ynfynyty is proof that Cherubs have lost none of the nihilistic rage that motivated their early material. Its a blown-out riffer, EQ firmly in the red. The record is available for pre-order on vinyl (already down to the last 250 copies), cassette (limited to only 100), and digital format here.

2 Ynfynyty Tracklist:
01. Sandy On The Beach
02. Crashing The Ride
03. Monkey Chow Mein
04. Unhappyable
05. Cumulo Nimbus
06. We Buy Gold
07. So Jellified
08. Evil May Acre
09. Party Ice
10. Sunday Mondays

Halflife Subtle Video
Mar 2, 2015 2:56pm | StereoGum
The British actor and rapper Riz Ahmed was great in the 2014 movie Nightcrawler, in which he played Jake Gyllenhaal’s assistant. And he might’ve been even better on the Swet Shop Boys EP, which he made with Heems. He’s now half of Halflife, a new project with the dubstep producer Distance, and we posted their […]

I fell in love with Clare Maguire when she was making the soft-spoken, intimate folk of her self-titled EP. You should listen to it if you haven’t heard it because it’s excellent. But that doesn’t mean I’m not here for new her brash, uptempo EP Don’t Mess Me Around. Few artists can vacillate between these […]



Björks next music video will be available on Oculus Rift
Mar 2, 2015 2:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Björk hasn’t made a name for herself by doing the expected. Her 2013 album, Biophilia, was not only released as a fascinating series of digital apps, but also spawned an elaborate, forward-thinking global tour comprising various multimedia effects, stage set-ups, and show-stopping costumes. The Icelandic artist is looking to up the ante once more with her forthcoming music video for Vulnicura standout “Stonemilker”.

Directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, who previously worked on Björk’s “Mutual Core” video and her forthcoming MoMA exhibition centerpiece Black Lake, the visual will be available on Oculus Rift. In a recent interview, Björk spoke about her decision to use the virtual reality platform: “Its easy to get really intimate [with virtual reality]. Its almost more intimate than real life. It also has this crazy panoramic quality. I think its really exciting.”

She added, “When I did the app album, it was all based on touch screens and the fact that I knew I could [create a virtual] music school, a dream since my childhood. I only did that album because I felt like I had content that made sense, that could relate to the technology. It cant just be working with the gadget for the sake of the gadget. But also its about budgets. You can do apps cheaply. Apps was kind of punk, actually. It was like starting a punk band again. ...
