Watch Stevie Nicks Play A Somber Solo Piano Version Of Blue Water
Jan 27, 2015 2:40pm | StereoGum

Fleetwood Mac began to pick up momentum again after that brief reunion with Christine McVie in late 2013, which culminated in a full-fledged reunion and the extensive On With The Show Tour last year. But it didn’t stop there, because Stevie Knicks decided to bless us with her own new solo album of unreleased songs, 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault. One of the new tracks on that record is “Blue Water,” a paean to the tidal nature of our pulsing lives. On the record Lady Antebellum provide harmonies for the song, but in this solo rendition Nicks’ signature, gruffy alto is front and center. I only wish I was driving down PCH staring at the ocean when she sings the line “the sea is as moving as a lover.” Watch the stunning performance below.


Calexico Cumbia De Donde
Jan 27, 2015 2:36pm | StereoGum

Calexico’s particular brand of latin-infused Americana resulted in what is probably the best Bob Dylan cover in existence (Jim James helped), but their original material is equally compelling. In fact, it’s so irresistible that a bevy of their peers seem consistently drawn to work with the group. They’ve announced the release of Edge Of The Sun today as the follow-up to 2012′s Algiers, and it features a stacked guest list. Collaborators include Neko Case, Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam, Band of Horses’ Ben Bridwell, and DeVotchka’s Nick Urata, among other more personal connections. They also shared the first track, “Cumbia De Donde” which is littered with with plenty of flamenco and mariachi reference points and vaguely reminiscent of the Gipsy Kings (I mean that in the best way). Listen below.

Chris Pratt is early favorite to star in new Indiana Jones film
Jan 27, 2015 2:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Thanks to the surprising success of Guardians of the Galaxy and The LEGO Movie, Chris Pratt has quickly gone from Leslie Knope’s quirky sidekick on Parks and Rec to one of Hollywood’s most sought after leading men. And his star is about to burn even brighter: In addition to his upcoming role in Jurassic World, Deadline reports that Pratt is an early favorite to star in the next Indiana Jones film.

Disney acquired the franchise in 2013 with plans to revive Indy following 2008’s less-than-stellar Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. According to Deadline, the studio is eyeing Pratt to build the new franchise around, but negations are still in the early stages.

In the meantime, Pratt begins filming Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven in April, and presumably is also lined up for a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy.

Avi Buffalo broke up
Jan 27, 2015 2:19pm | Brooklyn Vegan

hello kitty, goodbye Avi

Even though it was basically just Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg anyway, Avi Buffalo are now broken up and he's retiring the name. (Avi Buffalo's long-time-coming second album was released last year.) News broke today via a post on Avi Buffalo's Facebook:

The Avi Buffalo band is over; done with my 2-record-contract with SubPop and available to be anyone's guitarist / songwriter / producer / engineer / whatever works, gonna keep makin' music left and right. I have very much appreciated touching good people with this music, having a cool avenue through the world to perform it, getting to meet you whether it was in the USA, Canada or Europe, and working with some awesome musicians. I started it when I was a wee-15 year-old and it went WAY farther than I thought it could. In fact, the Avi Buffalo project went too far, and I don't think this project was meant for even the minute exposure on a "professional" scale that it got, as it ended up causing a lot more pain and drained my creative energy. It makes me wake up sick, confused, depressed, out of touch with myself and irrelevant to current music's existence. I know ya'll wouldn't want me to stay like that! Other more exciting and meaningful creative endeavors are what I have sought after instead, and as I am a spritely, young 24 year old, I've gotta lot of work to do and no time to be devoted to a sluggish incarnation of my teenaged self.

Operators, the current band of Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits), put out EP 1 last year and are planning to release their debut full length this year. Ahead of that though, they've dropped a new single, "Ecstasy In My House." It's brighter and bigger sounding than anything on the EP, and unmistakably the work of Boeckner. Check it out below.

As discussed, they've got a tour with The New Pornographers coming up, but unfortunately no NYC show scheduled at the moment. They were last here opening for Future Islands at Terminal 5 earlier this month.

Tour dates and the new song below...

The Sidekicks Everything In Twos Video
Jan 27, 2015 2:01pm | StereoGum

The Sidekicks released their latest album Runners In The Nerved World last week, and when we premiered the album stream a few weeks ago, Chris mentioned that the first time he saw the Sidekicks was at a house show in their shared home base of Columbus, Ohio. The Sidekicks look and sound like the kind of band that you should first be introduced to in someone’s grody basement, overwhelmed by the smell of spilled beer and repugnant body odor. So it’s fitting that the video for “Everything In Twos” revolves around the band performing inside of what could be likened to a crusty version of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. Watch below.


Desaparecidos to release first new album 13 years
Jan 27, 2015 2:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Reunited punk outfit Desaparecidos, led by Conor Oberst, have announced plans to release their first album in 13 years. The follow-up to 2002’s Read Music/Speak Spanish is due to arrive this year through new label home Epitaph Records. The group revealed the news via Instagram this afternoon, saying, “We are honored to officially be on @epitaphrecords. So many great things to come in 2015.”

Desaparecidos formed in Omaha, Nebraska back in 2001, but called it quits shortly after the release of Read Music/Speak Spanish. In 2013, the band officially reunited with new tour dates and a handful of recordings, including “The Left is Right”, “Anonymous”, Te Amo Camila Vallejo, and The Underground Man. According to a press release, the new album will feature original Desaparecidos members Oberst (vocals, guitar), Landon Hedges (bass, guitar), Matt Baum (drums), Denver Dalley (guitar) and Ian McElroy (keyboard).

In addition to the album/label news, the band has lined up a few US tour dates, including festival appearances at Coachella (and its corresponding “Localchella” sideshows) and Forecastle.

Desparacidos 2015 Tour Dates:
04/08 – Denver, CO @ Fillmore Auditorium
04/10 – Manga, UT @ The Great Sinclair
04/12 – Indio, CA @ Coachella
04/13 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Roxy
04/15 – Los Angeles...

Destruction Unit releasing the next 'Live In San Francisco' installment on Castle Face (stream a track)
Jan 27, 2015 1:55pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

The next installment of Castle Face's Live In San Francisco series comes out on February 23 and features raging Arizona psych-punks Destruction Unit. Here's what Castle Face label head (and Thee Oh Sees frontman) John Dwyer has to say about it:

In the distance is a speck surrounded by points of light, the faint glow of a galaxy. It approaches with no great haste. It is merely floating towards you under its own massive weight and momentum. Its size becomes more apparent as it advances. The low rumbling engine is an overture. Bits of space trash ping off it's hull. Certainly, you imagine, it's drawing nearer and not actually sucking you in, consuming you whole...

Suddenly it is upon you and it is deafening, are spun end over end, you've lost all send of original direction, you no longer know where you are...damaged, rent by antennae and crisped by the afterburners...after a great while and a seemingly endless tumult, you are abandoned amid debris, floating as the engines once again slowly hum off into the distance.

This is a Destruction Unit song.
Very heavy, very far out -
Massive fortification -
Endless building and tearing down -
Introduction religious in its immensity -
Outro decaying gloriously in the distance

I believe Destruction Unit to be one of the most important underground bands in America.

The live shows vary from dense chaos to dumbstruck ...

As discussed, Taking Back Sunday and The Menzingers are teaming up for a tour together, and since we last spoke they added dates in NYC and Philly. Following their now-sold-out NYC show on March 18 at Best Buy Theater, they'll play another show at the same venue a day later (3/19). Tickets for the newly-added show will be available soon and are on VIP presale now. Updated dates are listed below.

In related news, Taking Back Sunday's John Nolan is also working on a new solo album, which he's currently funding on PledgeMusic.

In semi-related news, The Menzingers' Epitaph labelmates The Sidekicks (who have covered The Menzingers) just made a video for "Everything In Twos" off their new album Runners in the Nerved World, that they just celebrated at a BV-presented NYC show. Watch that (via Wondering Sound) below. Speaking of Epitaph, they just signed Desaparecidos.

Lastly, during the Bouncing Souls' 'Home for the Holidays' celebration in late December, The Menzingers played an acoustic set at one of the Souls' charity raffles. Watch a high quality full-set video, with their updated list of dates and the Sidekicks video, below...

Q&A: Jessica Pratt On Her Mothers Death, Recording On A 4-Track, And Fusing Fantasy With Reality
Jan 27, 2015 1:45pm | StereoGum

When Jessica Pratt sings, something billows out of her. It isn’t merely her remarkable voice — soft and scratchy with a singularity that’s almost chilling — but a bigger force. Pratt is a songwriter whose lyrics fill space and hang there long after the first utterance. Her singing voice is so mesmerizing that the comparisons to other odd-voiced women (Joanna Newsom, Vashti Bunyan) come easy, but her closest companion in songwriting might actually be Bill Callahan. They both construct deviously simple melodies that warp into lingering, linear stories with a tendency to end sharply and suddenly, or not at all.

Jan 27, 2015 1:42pm | Brooklyn Vegan

You can still get tickets to that show but a second Bowery Show has been added for the following night (2/24). Openers TBA.

Jan 27, 2015 1:41pm | StereoGum

If you’re in the Los Angeles area and you couldn’t get Coachella tickets before they sold out, you will not necessarily have to hit the secondary-ticket market.

Tame Impala, Belle & Sebastian, Swans, Interpol, the War On Drugs, Drive Like Jehu, FKA twigs, Desaparecidos, Father John Misty, Jenny Lewis, Caribou, Action Bronson, Sylvan Esso, Toro Y Moi, Cloud Nothings, Azealia Banks, Ride, Built To Spill, and Ratatat are among the many, many bands playing shows in the area. You can find more info at the Goldenvoice website.

The Amazing Safe Island
Jan 27, 2015 1:40pm | StereoGum

Swedish quintet the Amazing introduced their upcoming album Picture You with the title track, which made the cut for The 5 Best Songs Of The Week last fall, then released the second single “The Headless Boy” earlier this year. Today, the band drops a third preview from the album, “Safe Island.” The track opens with a menacing sweep and is then driven by densely-amped guitars, and a smooth syncopated drum pattern with a rhythmic drum roll transitioning between bars. Check it out below.
