Moby to open vegan restaurant in LA, watch him cook chili and cover Johnny Cash on the Hallmark Channel
Apr 23, 2015 4:30pm | Fact Magazine

The DJ appeared on The Hallmark Channel for a cooking demo before leading an impromptu Johnny Cash sing along.

Moby has been a vocal supporter of animal rights and veganism for years, and soon he’ll find a way to promote that with a new restaurant in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles. Called Little Pine, the restaurant is due to open this summer initially serving dinner only and brunch on weekends.

To promote the restaurant Moby appeared on The Hallmark Channel (along with animal rights activist Gene Baur) for a cooking demo where he made a pretty tasty looking vegan chili. It’s worth watching especially to see him make jokes with Hallmark hosts about past drug use, being “an uptight WASP from Connecticut”, and how the wheat protein seitan sounds an awful lot like “Satan”. Near the end Moby is given a guitar and performs an off-the-cuff cover of Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring Of Fire’.

Now before you think that the guy who made Play is going to be serving up grub in Silverlake, Moby isn’t actually cooking at Little Pine. He has hired Anne Thornton, who was best known for the Food Network show Dessert First before becoming vegan for health reasons, it will be her first fully vegan restaurant.

Watch Moby’s demo and performance below. In other news, Moby still makes dope music! Read Slow To Speak’s new column to hea...

Mariachi El Bronx, the mariachi alter ego of LA punk band The Bronx, have an upcoming tour opening for Flogging Molly and Gogol Bordello this June, but they'll be headlining a string of dates before that.

The headlining run brings them to NYC on May 20 at Baby's All Right. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

The leg with Flogging Molly/Gogol Bordello doesn't hit NYC, but it will be nearby on June 26 at Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park (tickets). Flogging Molly also recently announced that they're reprising their St. Patrick's Day weekend cruise in 2016 with Rancid, Frank Turner, Fishbone, The Slackers and more.

List of Mariachi El Bronx dates and a live video, below...

SNL
Apr 23, 2015 4:13pm | StereoGum
Saturday Night Live took to Instagram today to announce the last three host/musical guest pairings of the season. Scarlett Johansson will host 5/2 with musical guest Wiz Khalifa (and, undoubtedly, this doofus). The 5/9 episode will feature Reese Witherspoon paired with Florence + The Machine, hopefully having regained some mobility. And the 5/16 … More »

Mineral Girls touring (dates & "Nvr Ur GF" song stream)
Apr 23, 2015 3:59pm | Brooklyn Vegan

The current Charlotte, NC indie rock scene seems pretty interconnected, with the Tiny Engines-signed It Looks Sad, who share members with Alright, who share members with Late Bloomer. Another band who rolls with that same scene is Mineral Girls, which includes Brett Green and Vince D'Ambrosio who were both founding members of It Looks Sad but have since left to focus on this band. Mineral Girls have an upcoming hometown show with Alright, and that's a few days after they play Charlotte's Reverb Fest with Beach Fossils, Elvis Depressedly, Jackson Scott and more.

The band then goes on a short tour, hitting NYC on June 2 at Bowery Electric with Cicada Radio and The Cartwheelers. No ticket info yet. All dates (some of which are still TBA) are listed below.

The hometown show with Alright is a release show for Mineral Girls' upcoming album, Cozy Body, which comes out May 19 via Self Aware Records (pre-order), and Feels Alright is putting it out on cassette. New single "Nvr Ur GF" is lo-fi/slacker DIY pop that should fit in well on a fest with Beach Fossils and Elvis Depressedly. That song premieres below.

new label releasing films on VHS (!); titles include puppet movie by Miss Pussycat & Quintron (who are touring)
Apr 23, 2015 3:55pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Cassettes are hip and vinyl sales are on the rise, so it shouldn't be too surprising that a record label has spun off a new company that will release obscure soundtracks on vinyl, and... movies on VHS. That would be Terror Vision which was started by Ryan Graveface of Black Moth Super Rainbow and Graveface Records. There will also be a video rental store as part of the Graveface Records & Curiosities shop in Savannah, GA. The official statement:

AT SOME POINT IN 2013 IT DAWNED ON ME THAT NONE OF THE CURRENT CROP OF SOUNDTRACK LABELS, ALTHOUGH GREAT, WERE RELEASING ANYTHING THAT WAS NEAR AND DEAR TO MY HEART. SURE I LOVE CREEPSHOW, HALLOWEEN, POLTERGEIST ETC BUT WHERE WAS THE LOVE FOR THE OBSCURE TITLES? THE TITLES I WORSHIPED GROWING UP THAT PEOPLE SO CALLOUSLY REFER TO AS "B MOVIES" OR MOVIES THAT ARE "SO BAD THAT THEY'RE GOOD". THE TITLES THAT VARÈSE SARABANDE HASN'T ALREADY RELEASED ON VINYL 20 YEARS AGO THAT YOU CAN STILL ACTIVELY PURCHASE ON DISCOGS. THE TITLES THAT MADE ME WANT TO MAKE MY OWN HORROR MOVIES AND REALIZE THAT I COULD...ALL I NEED IS A CAMERA, A KILLER IDEA AND THE MOTIVATION TO FINISH ONCE I BEGIN. FINALLY, IN 2014 I JUST SO HAPPENED TO RUN INTO 2 HORROR DIRECTORS (SEPARATELY) THAT I'VE LOOKED UP TO MY ENTIRE LIFE. THIS IDEA CAME UP OUT OF THE BLUE IN BOTH CONVERSATIONS AND WHAT THEY SAID WAS BOTH FASCINATING AND MOTIVATING. IN SHORT, WALKING AWAY FROM THOSE CONVERSATIONS I SI...

Listen: Creepoid

Creepoid – Photo by Karlo X Ramos


Philly’s Creepoid have been floating along just below the massive shoegaze cloud formation for about four years, two albums, and shared stages with indie biggies like Dinosaur Jr. and Kurt Vile. And like a plane making its way up through the clouds into a sunnier strata, their third album, Cemetery Highrise Slum, out June 23 on Collect, comes on a little clearer. And that’s just fine considering it ain’t clouds but sharks that the shoegaze sound has been jumping of late. And here, the four piece brought in Peter Mavrogeorgis (The National, Sharon Van Etten) to produce and mix the album, giving it a still swirly but summer dusk golden gleam that keeps it from becoming an easy psych jam.

Check out the song for Dried Out that they just released. And they’re out on tour starting tonight. But before they left, we quickly quieried guitarist/singer Sean Miller about the band’s excellent verbiage and other things.


The album title, Cemetery Highrise Slum, is a cool, intriguing title, but I’ve little idea what it means. So, what does it mean, where’d it come from?
“Cemetery highrise slum” is a line from the lead track off the album, American Smile. The phrase describes the current state of our collective lives. No matter how high we pretend to have climbed, no matter how “success...

System of a Down make Armenia proud with massive 37-song set
Apr 23, 2015 3:12pm | Cosequence Of Sound

System of a Down embarked on their “Wake Up the Souls” Tour earlier this month to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. To cap off the excursion, the band, made up entirely of Armenian-American musicians, performed their very first concert ever in Armenia.

SOAD put on a free show in Yerevan’s Republic Square, where they played for nearly two-and-a-half hours and delivered some 37 songs. “In Armenia, our status is unparalleled,” frontman Serj Tankian said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “I don’t want to use any monikers like the Beatles or anything, but it’s a unique kind of thing. So we want to go there and play for the people, which we’ve never done as System of a Down.”

More than just remembering and asking for reparations for the 1.5 million Armenia deaths in 1915 at the hands of the Ottoman Empire, Tankian said the tour was about ending all genocide. “Part of it is bringing attention to the fact that genocides are still happening, whether you use the word ‘genocide,’ ‘holocaust’ or ‘humanitarian catastrophe. None of that is changing. We want to be part of that change. We want the recognition of the first genocide of the 20th century to be a renewal of confidence that humanity can stop killing itself.”

Frank Ocean has legally changed his birth name
Apr 23, 2015 2:48pm | Fact Magazine

The man born Christopher Edwin Breaux has now legally become Frank Ocean.

Since his meteoric rise, we’ve always known Christopher Breaux by his musical moniker Frank Ocean. Now the singer has legally changed his name to Frank Ocean following delays that help up the proceedings since last year. Ocean followed all of the rules required for a legal name change including making announcements of it in local newspapers to ensure he is not attempting to commit fraud. According to TMZ the process was held up by “a driver’s license issue”.

In other news, Ocean, who just finished a tour with James Blake, will release his wildly anticipated new album this summer.
