Angel Olsen at MHOW in May (more by Amanda
As discussed, Angel Olsen is releasing a deluxe edition of this year's fantastic Burn Your Fire for No Witness on November 18 via Jagjaguwar and it will feature five bonus tracks. We've already posted one of those, "All Right Now," and now a second one called "May As Well" is streaming over at NPR. It's a super sparse song, sparser even than album cuts like "Unfucktheworld" or "White Fire." Check it out.
Angel's tour returns to NYC for three shows in December, Roulette on 12/6 and Bowery Ballroom on 12/8 & 12/9. Tickets for all three are still available.

M. Ward to reissue Transistor Radio, shares early version of Here Comes The Sun Again listen
Oct 29, 2014 12:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound
In 2005, singer/songwriter M. Ward released one of the finer examples of ramshackle and intimate mid-aughts folk with Transistor Radio. As the album’s 10th anniversary approaches, Merge Records has announced plans for a vinyl reissue and bonus CD featuring four previously unreleased recordings. It will see release on December 2nd.
In anticipation, the label has shared a four-track demo version of “Here Comes The Sun Again”. While you may already have warm memories associated with the original song (thanks to various car commercials or a high school CDR mixtape), you might want to clear some sentimental shelf space for the demo, which reads as even more intimate and affecting.
Featuring just Ward’s voice and an acoustic guitar, this early bare-bones version illustrates the song’s basic effectiveness — even without added instrumentation, it’s a piece that speaks volumes. It’s also a welcome reminder of his career before Ward became one half of She & Him.
Listen in below.
Julio Bashmore -Rhythm Of Auld (Feat. JDanna)
Oct 29, 2014 12:13pm | StereoGum
Julio Bashmore, the British dance producer and frequent Jessie Ware collaborator, has been working on an as-yet-untitled album for a while now. Last month, we posted “Simple Love,” a sparkling and upbeat track that showcased the singer J’Danna. Now Bashmore and J’Danna have hooked up again for “Rhythm Of Auld,” a track that sounds like a lush, symphonic ’70s disco anthem that’s been taken apart and reassembled by curious aliens. Listen to it below.

Communions Love Stands Still
Oct 29, 2014 12:10pm | StereoGum
Last month, the young Danish band Communions released a song called “So Long Sun.” That song serves as the A-side of an upcoming 7″ — the second 7″ released by the band this year (it’s preceded by the Cobblestones EP, which came out in March). That’s the extent of the band’s discography: two 7″s released over a nine-month span. But “So Long Sun” is one of the best songs I’ve heard all year — it’s the kind of thing that portends a classic debut album. Or maybe it’s portends a quick, tragic decline ending in obscurity or lesser projects. I’m hoping for the former, obviously, but if this were a supernova moment, I wouldn’t be shocked. (Part of my trepidation owes to the fact that Communions remind me a whole bunch of the La’s and the Stone Roses: two bands who peaked very early, and left behind handfuls of tiny, insanely valuable musical gems amid a landscape of utter personal carnage.) Anyway, today we get the B-side that accompanies “So Long Sun”; it’s called “Love Stands Still,” and it too is really, tantalizingly great. Listen.
Brian Eno shares previously unreleased song Prague listen
Oct 29, 2014 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound
On December 2nd, Brian Eno will reissue his four solo albums recorded between 1992-1997: Nerve Net (1992), The Shutov Assembly (1992), Neroli (1993), and The Drop (1997).
Each title will come with a second disc of new, previously unreleased music, as well as a 16-page booklet of photos and writing by Eno himself. The reissue of Nerve Net also includes the “lost” Eno album, My Squelchy Life marking the first time it’s ever been officially released.
In anticipation, Eno and label All Saints Records have shared two tracks from the forthcoming reissues. “Prague” is a never-before-heard song from the The Shutov Asssembly recording sessions, while “Fractal Zoom” is the opening track off Nerve Net. Listen in below.
Pre-orders for all the reissues are ongoing via Eno’s official website.
Nerve Net Tracklist:
Disc 2 My Squelchy Life
Angel Olsen May As Well
Oct 29, 2014 11:54am | StereoGum
Angel Olsen released the shattering solo album Burn Your Fire For No Witness earlier this year. And if it’s a bit weird to see a smallish indie album getting the deluxe reissue treatment so soon, it’s not like Burn Your Fire doesn’t deserve it. The new version of the album will have five bonus tracks, and we’ve already posted one, “All Right Now.” “May As Well,” another of the bonus tracks, is a heart-wracked solo-acoustic song that Olsen sings beautifully. Listen to it at NPR.
The deluxe edition of Burn Your Fire For No Witness is out 11/18 on Jagjaguwar.
PCPC (Parquet Courts + PC Worship) release first song (stream ++ related shows)
Oct 29, 2014 11:51am | Brooklyn Vegan

PCPC at Saint Vitus last week (more by PSquared)
As discussed, members of Parquet Courts and PC Worship have joined forces as PCPC. They made their live debut opening for Thurston Moore at Saint Vitus last week (read our review), and now they've put out their first recording, "Fell Into The Wrong Crowd." In our live review, we said that PCPC have shades of Bad Moon Rising-era Sonic Youth, and this 11-minute jam definitely does but it's also covered in vocal distortion and a little druggier than SY. It's good, noisy stuff and you can stream it below.
Parquet Courts also have a less noisy LP on the way as Parkay Quarts, and they play a big show at Webster Hall on December 11 with PC Worship and Blues Control. Tickets are still available.
Meanwhile you can catch PC Worship at Trans Pecos tonight (10/29).
Song stream below...

Regina Spektor at Capitol Theatre in 2012 (more by Toby
As discussed, there's a benefit for Doctors Without Borders (who are on the front lines of dealing with the ebola crisis in Africa) going down at NYC's Irving Plaza on November 19 with an awesome lineup of Fred Armisen, Jim Gaffigan, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Hannibal Buress, and Ted Leo, plus hosts Greg Barris and Jena Friedman. We mentioned that more acts would be added and we now know of two more good ones: Regina Spektor and radio/TV personality Ira Glass. Ira will be performing with dancers Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass, who joined him this past September for the premiere of their show, "Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host." Tickets are still available. Stay tuned for any more updates.

The Dead Weather premiere new song Buzzkill(er) listen
Oct 29, 2014 11:43am | Cosequence Of Sound
Although The Dead Weathers new album won’t be due out until 2015, the band’s kept anxious fans busy with a series of two-song singles released as part of Third Man Record’s Vault subscription series. Earlier this year we heard both “Open Up (That’s Enough)” and “Rough Detective”. Now, after previously teasing the track in July, they’ve let loose the full version of “Buzzkill(er)”, and it’s a doozy.
Clocking in at three minutes, it’s a searing, punchy rocker equipped with enough buzzsaw-like riffs to shred eardrums and speakers alike. Alison Mosshart’s vocals are an especially masterful weapon, teeming with energy and attitude.
Listen in below.
“Buzzkill(er)”, along with new song “It’s Just Too Bad”, will be available for digital purchase on November 4th.
Dawn Richard sets release date for Blackheart following Danity Kane split watch the video for Blow
Oct 29, 2014 11:33am | Fact Magazine
Dawn Richard has set a release date for the follow-up to Goldenheart, her 2013 album of epic, electro-futurist love songs.
After being put on the back-burner during the ill-fated reunion of Danity Kane, Blackheart the second album of a planned trilogy is now scheduled to appear on January 15 next year.
Its a completely different sound, she told Billboard. Blackheart is purely falling into the electronic world, and pushing the envelope.
Richard added: Lyrically and storytelling-wise, it is in the same fashion of Goldenheart. But I wanted each album to stand on its own, and have a cohesive story. The story in itself is about my journey throughout the music industry, and the love, the hate, the redemption and the whole thing in between.”
Danity Kane’s short-lived reunion produced a tour and a new album, DK3, but a fight in the studio last August spelled the end for the line-up of Richard, Aubrey ODay and Shannon Bex.
Im still a part of the other five Im never turning that down, says Richard. I just think Ive done the best that I possibly could. I did my part in releasing the [Danity Kane] album, so now all I can do is support whatevers out there and wish everyone the best, and now continue to make great music that doesnt affect my group. Were not promoting it, were not even doing videos or anything for it, which was the decision that wasnt my own. So I have to move forward....
FULL SCREEN: FKA twigss gruesome new clip, Sharon Van Etten soldiers on
Oct 29, 2014 11:29am | Chart Attack
Full screen collects all of the remarkable videos we've seen in the last 24 hours.
FKA twigs, "Video Girl"
With his short film for Flying Lotus's "Until The Quiet Comes," Kahlil Joseph demonstrated a skill for eliciting the sublime from death in the overlooked sections of American society. In his daring black & white clip for FKA twigs's "Video Girl," Joseph moves from the ghetto to death row. twigs's captivating dance and her (returning) empress-level style are placed inside an execution chamber, in which she plays a spectator and a projection, literally dancing on the condemned man's body. Her pop star glamour and the ugliness of her environment clash like snarling dogs, a brutal and beautiful dance in itself not seen in twigs's videos since "Papi Pacify."
FKA twigs's new album LP1 is out now via Young Turks.
Sharon Van Etten, "Your Love Is Killing Me"
"Your Love Is Killing Me" is the most obvious choice for centrepiece on Sharon Van Etten's new record Are We There, with its massive and unsentimental catharsis. It's one of the biggest songs of the year in any genre, in that regard. Sean Durkin's video for the song seems to respect what the song achieves, and wisely does not have its lead female character wail or blubber (dude can direct actors - his movies Martha Marcy May Marlene, Afterschool and miniseries Southcliffe are all recommended).
