Watch Action Bronson
May 20, 2013 1:19pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Boy, oh boy, are the GIF makers in for a field day. In the new video for “Strictly 4 My Jeeps”, watch as Action Bronson does cartwheels, lifts weights, ride around in his big ass jeep, and play a game of horse with RiFF RAFF before heading home for a mean steak and an Action Bronson-themed ice cream cake. A+ job to everyone involved.
“Strictly 4 My Jeeps” is the first track off Bronson’s collaborative album with wunderkind producer Harry Fraud, Saab Stories. In a recent tweet, Bronson revealed the tape “WILL BE OUT EARLY JUNE 10000000% no matter what.” As always, stay tuned for more.

The National at State Theater - 5/16/13
As mentioned, The National are releasing their new album, Trouble Will Find Me, this week (5/21), and they kicked off their international tour in support of it last week (5/16) just a few hours upstate of their hometown at Ithaca's State Theater. Pictures from that show are in this post.
At that show, they played almost the entirety of the new album, including all three singles, "Sea of Love", "Don't Swallow the Cap", and "Demons", and a number of other highlights like "I Should Live In Salt" and "I Need My Girl." They spread the new tracks apart pretty well though, making room for tons of old favorites like "Daughters of the Soho Riots," "Fake Empire," "Mr. November," "Afraid of Everyone," and more. Check out the full setlist below.
As mentioned, The National's tour brings them to their hometown for their largest show there yet on June 5 at Barclays Center with Youth Lagoon (who also just played NYC). Tickets for the Barclays Center show are still available and we're also giving away a pair.

Laura Marling streams new album 'Once I Was An Eagle' ahead of official release

The singer-songwriter's fourth album comes out on May 27
May 20, 2013 1:16pm | Fact Magazine
Haven’t heard of Nommos before? You’re in for a treat.
Craig Leon will always be best known as a producer to the stars. The man has lent his technical knowledge to a host of high profile bands and artists, from the Ramones, The Talking Heads, Blondie and Suicide in the 1970s and 80s to his more recent classical work with Luciano Pavarotti, The London Symphony Orchestra and flautist James Galway. It is however, a lesser known album from 1981, released on John Fahey’s hallowed Takoma imprint that stands as his most unique contribution to music. An electronic record made at a time when the sounds were still in their infancy, Leon took the post-punk sound he helped to forge and stripped into a skeletal, pulsing hum replacing any sense of pop with off-key drones, reverberating rhythms and pulsating synthesizers.
Nommos will be re-issued by the Superior Viaduct label on June 25 and it’s beyond overdue. The album received a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ bootleg pressing not so long ago, but Superior Viaduct are pulling out all the stops to make sure theirs is the version to grab, with the edition remastered from the original analog tapes.
According to Julian Cope’s Head Heritage Nommos is the ”missing link between the proto-industrial rhythm and drone of Suicide and the whole minimalist drone / static / repetition met...

May 20, 2013 1:05pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
French Camp is a Brooklyn-based band comprised of singer Owen Beverly along with Benji Lee, Edward Barton, Andrew Doherty. Beverly is originally from Jackson, Mississippi and named the band after a boarding school in the Mississippi delta not too far from there. The have two records to their name with the latest being Odd Particle that was released earlier this month. During the creation of the record, they drew inspiration from Roy Orbison and many of his signature trademarks can be heard in the lyrics, guitar tones, and vocals.
Their newest single is the melodic “Way To Your Heart.” According to Beverly, the song was written shortly after a friend had passed and is referenced with some of the imagery in the new video for the song, although they tried to keep the visual “a little more playful and ironic.” The depicts a heart surgery along with Beverly running throughout the clip as a cathartic release while tossing aside objects that go along with the lyrics of the song. Find it below along with a stream of the album in full.

May 20, 2013 12:46pm | Fact Magazine

On the new double album Drifters/Love Is The Devil, Alex Zhang Hungtai’s Dirty Beaches project pushes its combination of tense lo-fi noise and sweaty rockabilly beyond its logical conclusion, laying on the bad vibes incredibly thick. And the group’s new video for the knife-edge throb “Casino Lisboa” has its own dark glamor to it. The video was shot in some Asian metropolis (Bangkok, I’m thinking), and it mixes footage of the Dirty Beaches live show with images of local breakdancers, strippers, and Muay Thai fighters. Watch it below.
