It's been too long since Baroness' last album, 2012's Yellow & Green. The delay is totally understandable, of course -- Baroness were involved in a horrible bus accident that left them physically and psychically shattered -- but that doesn't sate one's hunger to hear more of the Virginia band's dizzying twin-guitar pyrotechnics and … More »

Hot Chip premieres new song
Apr 27, 2015 9:30am | Cosequence Of Sound

On May 18th, Hot Chip will release their latest album Why Make Sense? through Domino Records. Serving as the follow-up to 2012’s In Our Heads, the 10-track LP was recorded in Oxfordshire and London. Already we’ve heard previews in “Huarache Lights” and “Need You Now”. Now, the UK outfit’s unveiled “Burning Up”, a bonus cut off the Separate EP, a collection of non-album tracks that appear on the deluxe, pre-order version of the new LP.

Whereas the previous offerings saw Hot Chip light the dance floor on fire, “Burning Up” — despite its name — takes the heat down a couple notches to simmering temperatures. The calmer approach doesn’t take away from the song’s appeal, though; it’s a glistening and lovely listen all the way to the very end. Check it out below via its lyric video.

Why Make Sense? Tracklist:
01. Huarache Lights
02. Love Is The Future
03. Cry For You
04. Started Right
05. White Wine and Fried Chicken
06. Dark Night
07. Easy To Get
08. Need You Now
09. So Much Further To Go
10. Why Make Sense?

Separate EP Tracklist:
01. Burning up
02. Separate
03. Move With Me
04. Re-harmonize



The Tallest Man on Earth streaming new album, 'Dark Bird Is Home' (listen)
Apr 27, 2015 9:28am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

The Tallest Man on Earth is releasing his fourth album, Dark Bird Is Home, on May 12 via Dead Oceans, and he's now made the entire thing available to stream. The album has his most fleshed-out arrangements and polished production to date, but there's a few stripped-down songs recalling his earlier material here too. No matter which mode he's in, Tallest Man's songwriting is still in excellent form. Listen over at NPR.

His tour with Hiss Golden Messenger hits NYC on June 3 at Beacon Theatre. Tickets for that show are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Tallest Man is playing full-band on this tour.

You can listen to the album's two singles, with the full list of dates, below...

Death Cab For Cutie
Apr 27, 2015 9:26am | StereoGum
For Death Cab For Cutie fans, news of Chris Walla's departure was a jarring accompaniment to last August's announcement that the band had completed their eight full-length. Though Kintsugi was recorded with Walla, Death Cab enlisted Zac Rae as their new touring member. In these acoustic performances of "Black Sun" and "Passenger … More »



Brandon Flowers premieres new song
Apr 27, 2015 9:25am | Cosequence Of Sound

The Desired Effect is the new solo album from Killers frontman Brandon Flowers, due out on May 18th through Island Records. “Lonely Town” serves as our latest preview of the LP.

Strewn with smoldering synths, it’s a sweeping, arena-sized number that sounds pulled from the power pop heydays of the ’80s. If Bruce Springsteen had done dance music, I’m confident this is the kind of stuff he’d put out. Check out the track below via its accompanying retro music video.

The Desired Effect serves as the follow-up to 2010’s Flamingo. For more, listen to “Still Want You” and “Can’t Deny My Love”.

The Desired Effect Tracklist:
01. Dreams Come True
02. Can’t Deny My Love
03. I Can Change
04. Still Want You
05. Between Me And You
06. Lonely Town
07. Diggin’ Up The Heart
08. Never Get You Right
09. Untangled Love
10. The Way It s Always Been



Hot Chip

Hot Chip kicked off the year teasing their new album Why Make Sense? by tweeting out the initially cryptic website, later revealing it was their new album's title alongside its first track, the soothing synth jam "Huarache Lights." Since then we've also heard aggressive electro-ballad "Need You Know" and today, "Burning Up." … More »

Primus @ The Paramount 4/25/2015

Primus' Willy Wonka themed-tour, which supports their Wonka-themed album, swung through the NYC-area for a second time, hitting Long Island's The Paramount in Huntington, NY on Saturday night (4/25). Billed as Primus and The Chocolate Factory featuring The Fungi Ensemble, the stage was made to look like Wonka's "pure imagination" from the 1971 film classic (which clips from were projected behind the band), and there were appearances from some of the largest Oompa Loompas ever seen. In addition to originals, Primus also covered a few songs from the movie, including "Pure Imagination" and "I Want it Now." The Wonka set was bookended by regular Primus sets featuring cuts from the last 25 years. Setlist and pictures are in this post.

Primus will be back this summer for their tour with Dinosaur Jr. More pics from Primus' show at The Paramount, below...

Swedish punks Refused announce first album in 17 years, Freedom
Apr 27, 2015 9:03am | Fact Magazine

Rejoice, fans and ex-fans of liminal ’90s hardcore.

Refused have announced their first album in 17 years, Freedom, the long-awaited result of a comeback that started in 2012 when the Swedish experimental hardcore outfit reformed for a Coachella performance.

Before that, drummer David Sandström, guitarist Kristofer Steen and bassist Magnus Flagge had been writing together for several years as a new vocal-less band, but with the addition of frontman Dennis Lyxzén they decided to get back in the studio for a belated follow-up to 1998’s seminal The Shape of Punk To Come.
