Alt-Rock Sleuths Suss Out Nine Inch Nails & Soundgarden Summer Tour
Mar 8, 2014 4:01pm | StereoGum
Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden celebrate two big anniversaries today as both The Downward Spiral and Superunknown turn 20 years old (which resulted in some animosity between the two bands back in the day). Now Antiquiet has compiled evidence that points to the bands going on a co-headlining tour this summer. First Live Nation leaked a listing for an August show in Dallas with both NIN and Soundgarden. Then fans found an auction that offered a Chris Cornell meet-and-greet at a NIN/Soundgarden show in LA. Yesterday, both bands seemingly teased the news with similar promotional Instagram videos. Thanks to the diligent work by fan forum Echoing The Sound in identifying the series of venues flashed in the Soundgarden clip, we have a tentative list of places the tour will be hitting this year. Check those out along with the videos below.

HudMo & Zomby Got Into A Fist Fight, Then Took It To Twitter
Mar 8, 2014 2:46pm | StereoGum
Hudson Mohawke and Zomby got into a fight last night after Zomby played a show at London’s XOYO. The pair took to Twitter shortly after to exchange some words. Zomby tweeted that HudMo “got the shit slapped out of him” and “caught 3 in the face,” accompanied by a picture of his bloody knuckle which was later taken down. Details about the why are still unclear, but both artists mentioned their fashion choices for the night. Zomby said, “My sweater worth more than your life but let’s not go into that u don’t know givenchy unless i wore it first” and HudMo retaliated with, “Poor @ZombyMusic thought i should apologise in his face after wearing socks worth more than his entire outfit.” A lot of the tweets have been deleted, but Consequence Of Sound compiled a transcript of the whole altercation which you can read below.
CYMBALS share new video, playing two free NYC shows with Montreal band Seoul this weekend
Mar 8, 2014 1:11pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
We mentioned before that UK band CYMBALS would be coming over to play SXSW and turns out they're playing two shows in NYC this weekend before heading to Austin and both of them are free. They play an early show tonight (3/8) at Pianos. They're on at 7 PM and before them at 6 PM is Montreal's Seoul. CYMBALS also play Brooklyn Bowl on Sunday (3/9) as part of the It's A School Night series with Seoul again, as well Paperwhite, Marian Hill and Lion Babe. Free with RSVP.
If you haven't checked out CYMBALS' new album, Age of Fracture, it's on the dancier side of Britpop and is not too far off from what Outfit, Hot Chip and Breton are doing. The band just released a video for New Order-ish "Erosion" and you can watch that below and stream the whole album via Rdio.
As for Seoul, the very new Montreal band are worth seeing too, making airy, crystaline pop that's funky and soulful in an '80s kind of way. I enjoyed their set at M for Montreal last year. Stream their song "Stay with Us" below.
CYMBALS' SXSW dates are listed, along with videos and streams, below...

Japanese band Buffalo Daughter on tour, NYC shows this weekend (tonight w/ Cibo Matto), play SXSW
Mar 8, 2014 11:57am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Japanese trio Buffalo Daughter were best known in the late '90s when they were signed to Beastie Boys' label, Grand Royal. Their 1998 album New Rock exemplifies was they do, mising synthpop, krautrock and hiphop into one funky bouillabaisse. You can check out the video for "Great Five Lakes" below and stream the whole album via Rdio. The band have remained active ever since, their last album being 2010's Weapons of Math Destruction. You can stream that via Rdio too.
Buffalo Daughter are currently on tour in North America and this weekend they're in NYC, playing with their old pals Cibo Matto tonight (3/8) at Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets are still available. Then Sunday (3/9) they play Baby's All Right with The Suzan. Tickets for that are on sale now.
This week they'll be heading to Austin for SXSW where they'll play the Peelander Z fest on Friday (3/14) at the Grackle (flyer below). All dates are listed, along with that video below.

Ras G announces new worldwide tour, from Japan to Europe via Russia
Mar 8, 2014 11:30am | Fact Magazine
L.A’s answer to Sun Ra heads out on globe trotting tour in support of new releases.
Those who follow Brainfeeder’s Ras G will be aware of his daily reminder that he’s ‘back on the planet’. This coming March he’ll be doing that in the flesh with a world tour that starts in Japan and ends in Europe, in just under four weeks.
The tour is in support of his recent releases: a new album for Brainfeeder, cunningly titled Back On The Planet, and a beat tape for Leaving Records/Stones Throw, Raw Fruit vol.2. He’s already announced that the third volume of Raw Fruit is wrapped up, so those attending the shows can expect to hear old and new songs in his typical mind bending approach. If you’ve never been to a Ras G show, we can only recommend what is one of the most bodily and liberating live beat experiences around today.
For more on the man, you can check out the audio for his contribution to the Classic Drug References release from late last year.
Hear the techno-infected, shuffling title track from Charles Trees new Rootwork EP
Mar 8, 2014 11:08am | Fact Magazine
Ann Arbor hometown hero Charles Trees drops his first name and releases hybrid EP for Spanish label Lovemonk.
Ann Arbor, Michigan has given the world a fair few legends in its time, from Iggy Pop to Dabrye. One name that you’ll often hear on the lips of city resident is Charles Trees, a local producer and musician who’s built a reputation for himself and has released on Ghostly affiliate label Moodgadget and French beat house Musique Large. In the last months we’ve featured him on our monthly Bandcamp column and namechecked him in our Detroit talent piece.
Having now dropped his first name, so just Trees then, he’s announced a new EP for Spanish label Lovemonk. Rootwork has been two years in the making and features four tracks that show the breadth of Trees’ musical leanings, from jazz to techno, prog rock to African rhythms. The EP is rounded up by two remixes from France’s DJ F and fellow Ann Arbor musician Shigeto.
We’ve got the premiere of the EP’s title track, a shuffling techno-infected jazz monster that starts on a Sun Ra tip, with Dan Bennet on sax, and ends up on a sweaty dancefloor somewhere downtown. The EP drops this month via Lovemonk.
