JEFF the Brotherhood prep new album (stream a track)
Dec 17, 2014 2:20pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

JEFF the Brotherhood have a new record due out in 2015, which will be their second for Warner Brothers. Details are still forthcoming but Jake and Jamin have offered up the first single, "What's a Creep," which is a crunchy JEFF-style piledriver, completely with a twin lead solo. You can stream or download below.

The boys were in NYC for DbA's final night, playing in their old two-piece configuration but the current line-up of JEFF is a quartet. Folks in Chicago can catch this new incarnation of JEFF at Empty Bottle on New Year's Eve. That and Burgerama are their only dates at the moment, but that will likely change sooner than later.

Jenny Slate, as Marcel the Shell, sings Fleetwood Macs Landslide watch
Dec 17, 2014 2:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

This year, Jenny Slate captivated audiences with her breakout performance as Donna Stern in the enthralling dramedy Obvious Child. During Tuesdays Conan appearance, however, Slate chose to highlight another character from her repertoire: Marcel the Shell, the adorable mollusk featured in three stop-motion films.

In Marcels trademark meek and mousy voice, Slate not only rattled off inspirational one-liners (“You can do it!”), but also delivered a cute, albeit brief, cover of Fleetwood Macs “Landslide”. The one-eyed bugger is certainly no Stevie Nicks, but gee whiz can he hold a note!

Watch the clip below.

For kicks, why not revisit Marcels first short film, 2010s Marcel the Shell with Shoes On:



Bobby Shmurda Arrested In Drug Sting
Dec 17, 2014 2:11pm | StereoGum

On his Shmurda She Wrote EP, Bobby Shmurda rapped, “Like, the other day we was over there just shooting.” The NYPD seems to believe Shmurda is still out there committing crimes; ABC News reports that the rapper, born Ackquille Pollard, was one of several people arrested in relation to a series of gang-related shootings and drug trafficking. Shmurda is part of a group of defendants set to be arraigned Thursday, after which their indictments will be unsealed. Here’s hoping it was all a misunderstanding — and that the Shmoney Dance originator’s lyrics about committing crimes don’t come back to bite him.

Bob Saget at Bowery Ballroom in 2013 (more by PSquared)

Bob Saget, who as you probably know by now is much raunchier than the famed Danny Tanner, has a few shows announced for 2015, including two in the NYC-area. First he plays NYC proper on April 16 at Best Buy Theater, and that's followed by a Long Island show on April 17 at NYCB Theatre at Westbury.

Listen: JEFF The Brotherhood Whats A Creep
Dec 17, 2014 2:00pm | CMJ

Even snarling guitar bros are getting into the Christmas spirit—kind of. Nashville’s JEFF The Brotherhood have just dropped What’s A Creep onto the internet, a song that you might not realize was holiday-themed if not for its accompanying photo of Jake and Jamin Orrall posing with a mall Santa. It’s loud and knuckleheaded-ly fast, with big guitar solos and nightmarish lines like, “He’ll be watching when you sleep.” In the end, it doesn’t really matter if it’s about Santa or a weird neighbor, ’cause it’s a good song. Listen below.

The post Listen: JEFF The Brotherhood – “What’s A Creep” appeared first on CMJ.


Mos Def, RZA, Aretha Franklin & more speak about Eric Garner issue; benefit shows for his family happening in NYC

The Eric Garner protests, like last weekend's Millions March, in NYC continue, and recently a number of musicians have spoke about the issue too. Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey), offered an audio statement called "Thoughts On The Upheaval From A Global Perspective" via Stop Being Famous, as Billboard points out. Here's some of what he said:

Where are we? We're at a critical time. We're at a watershed moment for humanity. The urgency to 'change this miserable condition on this earth,' as Malcolm X said, is occurring to many of us, reaffirming itself.

It's the opportunity for necessary change, positive change, and it's not necessarily convenient or comfortable as I'm sure it is with any period of growth. I read somewhere that in order for an arrow to fly, the bow has to be drawn back. There's some pressure involved and I think we're all feeling that pressure. Some of us are more aware of it than others. Some of us are trying to drown it out. But we all feel it one way or another, in indelible ways in these times and days.

You can listen to the audio below.

RZA also spoke to Vanity Fair about it, saying:

The value of a man's life has been totally reduced. It has never been even put at the proper value, when it comes to a black man... But we have an old-school mentality of what you can do, as a cop, and how some...

The Muscadettes made a holiday song, "Christmas Kitty" (stream it), list their Top 10 LPs of 2014
Dec 17, 2014 1:36pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Montreal duo The Muscadettes are currently holed up working on their debut album but while we wait for news on that, they've offered up holiday treat in the form of new song, "Christmas Kitty." With a twangy, B-52's lead, its a bouncy little stocking stuffer that makes its premiere in this post. You can stream it below.

The Muscadettes, who were last in NYC for CMJ, have also been making a list and checking it twice, in this case their Top 10 LPs of 2014 which they've shared with us as well. You can check that out below too.

JEFF The Brotherhood Whats A Creep
Dec 17, 2014 1:00pm | StereoGum

Last we heard from the Nashville duo JEFF The Brotherhood, they were covering My Bloody Valentine. It’s been awhile since the band released new material, but today they unleashed the snarling, tounge-in-cheek, vaguely holiday-themed “What’s A Creep.” There is not a jingle bell to be found on the song, but there are some allusions to Santa, “And he’ll be watching when you sleep.” You can listen to the track below and download it for free in exchange for an email address here.

Young Widows at Saint Vitus in January 2014 (more by Ebru Yildiz)

Noisy Louisville post-punks Young Widows have announced a run of tour dates for March 2015. They'll be joined on the whole tour by Shannon Wright (formerly of '90s indie band Crowdsell), who Young Widows are already outspoken fans of.

The tour will hit NYC for a show at Saint Vitus on March 17. Tickets for that show go on sale this Friday (12/19) at noon.

Pelican Deny The Absolute Video
Dec 17, 2014 12:45pm | StereoGum

Chicago instrumental metal masters Pelican will play around with vocals on The Cliff, the new EP they’ll release early next year. Before they get to that, though, they’ve shared a video for “Deny The Absolute,” a rumbling six-minute jam from their 2013 album Forever Becoming. Kenneth Thomas directed the video, combining black-and-white live and behind-the-scenes footage from the band’s recent West Coast tour and combining it with ominous, atmospheric shots of roads and taxidermied animals. Watch the video below.

Field Report On Christmas Eve
Dec 17, 2014 12:31pm | StereoGum

It seems that the only requirement these days to release a Christmas song is that it contain some semblance of jingle bells in the instrumentation and maybe a brief mention of snow. I’m not a fan of Christmas music; for the most part, I find it dorky and un-challenging. But yesterday, I wrote about the really great Los Angeles Police Department song “Oh Lonely Night,” and I think that I’ve changed my mind a little bit. I went into the Milwaukee-based band Field Report’s new track “On Christmas Eve” willing to surrender to holiday cheer and found myself totally surprised, again. “On Christmas Eve” is a stuttering track about a Christmas Eve car crash. At just over two minutes, it’s a suspenseful Christmas miracle that leads up to the subtle but gorgeous moment when the protagonist thinks his brother died. Chris Porterfield sings, “We thought he broke his neck/ But he just bit through his lip.” Listen below.

Pennsylvania punks Modern Baseball released one of the year’s best albums with Youre Gonna Miss It All, an endearing dose of rousing power chords and witty millennial angst. During a show in Philadelphia last week, the band channeled this misfit charm into a stellar cover of The Killers 2006 single “When You Were Young”. Watch fan-shot footage below (via Property of Zack).
