Deer Tick played the 'American Songbook' series at Lincoln Center, joined by Vanessa Carlton (pics & setlist)

Twangy rockers Deer Tick returned to NYC last night (3/6) for the ongoing American Songbook Series at Lincoln Center's Allen Room. Given the environment and their partially acoustic setup, they were less rowdy than usual, and their 20+ song set included material from all over their career. They also included a few covers, but leaned most heavily on songs from their 2007 debut, War Elephant, and their newest LP, 2013's Negativity. For "In Our Time" off the latter, Deer Tick singer John McCauley's (once very famous and still active) wife Vanessa Carlton came out to sing guest vocals, which she also does on the album version. PIctures of the show are in this post.
John and Ian of Deer Tick will be back in NYC for the Bob Dylan tribute at MHOW on 3/24 which also includes Elvis Perkins, Langhorne Slim, Dawn Landes, and more.

Bob's Burgers releasing soundtrack this fall; new episodes start this weekend at a new time (a song explains it)
Mar 7, 2014 9:30am | Brooklyn Vegan
Like Wes Anderson films, music is pretty intrinsic to FOX animated comedy Bob's Burgers. There seems to be a an original song in just about every episode. Some of those songs then get covered by bands like The National. For those who have been hoping these songs might become available separate from the episodes, it looks like you're in luck. The AV Club reports that during a press conference, show producer Loren Bouchard told folks that a soundtrack is in the works and should be out by the fall.
In other news, Bob's Burgers is finally back this Sunday (3/9) with new episodes after a winter break. It's back at a new time too -- 7 PM EST -- for the rest of the season. Why? In true Bob's Burgers style, they let you know in song, which you can watch below (via Vulture). It may have something to do with the update of COSMOS hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson which premieres Sunday at 8 PM... but still watch the video (and some other BBs songs) below...

Frank Ocean teams up with The Clash and Diplo for new track Hero
Mar 7, 2014 9:19am | Cosequence Of Sound
Converse’s long-running Three Artists, One Song series has previously led to unique collaborations between Gorillaz, André 3000, and James Murphy (“DoYaThing”) and Julian Casablancas, Santigold, and Pharrell (“My Drive Thru”). The latest installment brings together R&B crooner Frank Ocean, super producer Diplo, and The Clashs own Mick Jones and Paul Simonon for a song called “Hero”. Aside from the uniqueness of the collaboration, it marks the first time Jones and Simonon have worked together since touring with Gorillaz in support of 2010′s Plastic Beach.
Diplo said of the collaboration:
A release date for the track has not yet been revealed.
Superunknown Turns 20
Mar 7, 2014 9:19am | StereoGum
This year is going to be a strange one for anniversaries. On one hand, we have a slew of British albums turning twenty — Definitely Maybe, His ’N’ Hers, Parklife — that mark the rise of Britpop. While that movement was just starting up across the ocean, over here grunge was simultaneously huge but also dwindling. In Utero turned twenty last year, as did Pearl Jam’s VS.; this year the latter’s Vitalogy will also hit the milestone. And, of course, here we have Soundgarden’s Superunknown, in many ways the band’s peak, which will be twenty years old tomorrow. Between Cobain’s suicide, Pearl Jam’s willed removal from the spotlight, and Soundgarden’s 1997 breakup, this chapter of American rock music was already coming around to its conclusion. There would still be major works from prominent American artists to follow — Weezer’s debut also turns twenty in June, which was then followed by Pinkerton in 1996; the beginning of the reign of the Smashing Pumpkins’ Mellon Collie hits two decades next year — but by and large, when looking back, albums like Superunknown start to feel like markers of the end of an era, even while this one garnered Soundgarden their greatest success.
The Weeks Best Mixtapes and Free Mixes, March 7, 2014
Mar 7, 2014 9:16am | Fact Magazine
Listening to the deluge of mixtapes and free mixes from hip-hop artists and electronic producers alike is often an insurmountable task. Thats why we scour Datpiff, LiveMixtapes and beyond, separating the wheat from the chaff each week.
While Atlanta and Chicago might seem to dominate the mixtape game, dont forget the West Coast (especially in a week when DJ Mustard has four songs on the R&B/Hip-Hop Top 10). Weve got three very different Cali efforts this week, plus mixes by Jam City, DJ Clent, Miss Modular and more.

Track Premiere: Doug Gillard Ready For Death
Mar 7, 2014 9:10am | CMJ
Doug Gillard is kind of a low-key guy. You wouldn’t know it from the sparkling guitar work he’s weaved throughout his career—most notably as lead guitarist in Guided By Voices for nearly ten years. You certainly wouldn’t think that from checking out his early roots as a riff-shooter in the great, underrated, late ’80s Cleveland glam-punk gang, Death Of Samantha (that’s him, second from the bottom). He’s been a consistent live show member of Nada Surf for a few years. And would you believe he is about to release his third solo album, Parade On, out April 8 on Nine Mile Records? It’s beaming with the expected unbelievable guitar work that is his trademark, and overall bittersweet pop sounds that he’s developed since his first post-Death Of Samantha project, Gem.
From the bright hooks of “Ready For Death,” I’m going to hope the title and lyrics aren’t famous last words, but instead may be a nod to the fact that Gillard’s first band has not only been doing a few reunion shows over the last year and a half, but have recently released an excellent double-vinyl album, If Memory Serves Us Well (St. Valentines), featuring the original lineup blasting through 18 of their old tracks during a rehearsal in 2012. After some studio fine-tuning, it’s shaped up into a surprisingly explosive beast for what was considered a one-off pr...

Morrissey declares World Peace Is None Of Your Business on album due this summer
Mar 7, 2014 9:04am | Fact Magazine
Morrissey details the follow-up to 2009′s Years of Refusal.
Taking a break from writing open letters bashing the Royal Family, meat-eaters and Obama, the much-loved, yet much-despised singer has announced that his next record will be titled World Peace Is None Of Your Business.
The album is due out on his new label home Harvest this June or July, according to the reliable fansite/mouthpiece True To You, and comprises 12 tracks all produced by Joe Chiccarelli, previously at the controls for records by The Strokes, Tori Amos and The Shins. Morrissey is said to be “beyond ecstatic” with it.
World Peace… will follow a pair of U.S. gigs featuring support from big-chested sex god Tom Jones and decrepit oldies favourite Cliff Richard.
Fans of Morrissey’s oeuvre include Liverpudlian techno bod John Heckle, who recently eulogised The Smiths’ Hatful of Hollow for FACT’s My Favourite Record feature series.
Wes Anderson planning a box set of all his movie soundtracks; his new film 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' opens today
Mar 7, 2014 9:00am | Brooklyn Vegan
Wes Anderson's new film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, opens today in limited release -- in NYC it's at the Regal Union Square Stadium 14 and the Lincoln Square 13. With eight films under his belt, Anderson's whimsical style is as distinctive as anyone in the industry. One of his signatures is his use of music, and that goes from the harpsichord-laden scores to the soundtracks filled with impeccably curated pop songs.
While The Grand Budapest Hotel is his first not to use modern pop (frequent collaborator Alexandre Desplat did the score which can be streamed at Rdio), his other films are jam-packed with it. Indiewire reports that ABCKO will release a box set with the soundtracks to all eight of his film. This could include songs featured in movies that didn't make the cut for their official soundtracks. Details, beyond that's its happening, haven't surfaced yet, but we're going to assume the packaging will be exquisite.

Schoolboy Q What They Want (Feat. 2 Chainz) Video
Mar 7, 2014 8:46am | StereoGum
Schoolboy Q’s great new LP Oxymoron is the #1 album in the country, but it’s also a rough and clattering rap record with precious few concessions to Q’s new Interscope overlords. Even a track that would seem to scream “next single” — like “What They Want,” which has a Mike Will Made-It beat and a 2 Chainz guest verse — comes out fractured and tense. And Q’s new video for “What They Want” fits the song’s tone. He filmed it in New Orleans, looking extremely blunted in a strip club and wandering dessicated post-Katrina wastelands and hanging out with skull-faced reapers. Watch it below.
Listen: Rare Monk Splice (TURTLE Remix) [Premiere]
Mar 7, 2014 8:45am | The Line Of Best Fit
Back in January, we featured Portland, OR psych outfit, Rare Monks, new single, Splice, as Song of the Day. We are now pleased to premiere a remix of that track by Turtle, the nom de plume of Glaswegian electronic artist, Jon Cooper.
Last we heard the original Splice signing off, it was charging warp speed through the stratosphere its closing unabashed, thunderous blow-out, as we lovingly referenced and now Turtle has given it a nudge into orbit. The remix opens with a stark, eerie synth straight from the Twilight Zone. Once it gets its astral bearings, Dorian Aites vocals waft in, joined soon after by deep throbbing bass and brisk hi-hat.
The Rare Monk original provides Turtle an ideal blueprint to mollify and expand the tracks possibilities while still remaining sonically tethered to it. What impresses is Turtles knack for paradoxically spinning the song into orbit while also grounding it with a pair of glittered dancing shoes. Though, one must only hope for Sir Richard Bransons dreams of space tourism to materialize to access this club.
Turtles latest EP, Who Knows, is available now via his Bandcamp site and can be followed on Facebook and Twitter. The remix is available to download for free. Catch Rare Monk at SXSW next week before their dat...
