Song : Suixx : Hi
Oct 20, 2014 11:33am | My Old Kentucky Blog
Suixx is the moniker taken by Sydney’s Sarah Jullienne. Her latest song, titled “Hi”, is what we imagine it would sound like if Tame Impala and Beach House hooked up and mixed their sonic aesthetics. The song is just another example on how Australia has been killing it lately with its musical exports. Expect it to appear on her forthcoming debut EP slated sometime in the very near future, possibly before the end of the year. Stream below.
Q&A: Iceage On Snakes In The Music Business, Violence At Shows, And Plowing Into The Field Of Love
Oct 20, 2014 11:17am | StereoGum
Iceage are currently trekking across the United States (and a bit of Canada) in support of their excellent new album, Plowing Into the Field of Love. The album, the band’s third, shows them moving away from the brutish punk pummel of their first two albums and expanding their sonic palette to include things like mandolins, violas, and discernible lyrics. Even though Plowing isn’t necessarily a feel-good record (or even a pop record, as some have called it), it does feel like a deliberate step forward for the band and a move toward a kind of more accessible songwriting. Tracks like “Abundant Living” and “The Lord’s Favorite” have more in common with old school country music than hardcore, and Iceage’s videos flirt with a kind of ambiguous sexuality and, dare it be said, amorousness that would have been hard to imagine if you’d seen the band play live a couple of years ago. And while there was definitely something to be said for the punishing nature of New Brigade, there’s something equally compelling about frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt stepping out of the shadows and commanding the listener to, “Come here and be gorgeous for me now.”
Stream Medicine Home Everywhere
Oct 20, 2014 11:13am | StereoGum
Last year, the classic lineup of the early-’90s dreampop trio Medicine reunited and released To The Happy Few, their first album since 1995. The reunion has continued, and Medicine already have a follow-up album coming out next week. We’ve already posted the songs “Turning” and “Move Along – Down The Road“, and now the band’s entire new album Home Everywhere is streaming at NPR.
Home Everywhere is out 10/28 on Captured Tracks.
The Greatest Hoax Opus No. 21 (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 20, 2014 11:11am | StereoGum
Washington, DC pianist Taylor Jordan studied composition at the University of North Texas before taking a job as a climate scientist for the government. In his free time, he still writes gorgeous ambient classical music under the name the Greatest Hoax, and it’s a good thing he does. The way “Opus No. 21″ builds towering emotional catharsis out of electro-organic foundations reminds me of Sigur Rós circa ( ) or the Flaming Lips’ Soft Bulletin/Yoshimi-era instrumentals, though this music is far more restrained and intimate than that. It’s something you should definitely hear, so hear it below.
Stream: Nick Oliveris new album Leave Me Alone
Oct 20, 2014 11:05am | Cosequence Of Sound
Nick Oliveris sophomore solo album, Leave Me Alone, arrive October 28th via Schnitzel Records. In anticipation, the album is streaming in full below.
The former Queens of the Stone Age/Kyuss member played all the instruments on the nine-track effort himself. Oliveri did, however, enlist a bevy of guest collaborators, including Phil Campbell of Motörhead, Dean Ween, Bruno Fevery of Kyuss Lives!, and multiple appearances from Marc Diamond and Blag Dahlia of Dwarves.
Speaking with Antiquiet about the work he put into the record, Oliveri admitted, “I never played drums on a record before, so it was my first time doing that. I kinda wrote the songs on drums, humming parts from my head, then added guitar parts to them. That way, every song in it is exactly how I heard it in my head.” He went on to say the record is “short and sweet, but I like records like that, it gets to the point, moves around a bit, and then its over.”
In the same interview, Oliveri addressed the song “Robot Man”, which is about his 2011 arrest following a confrontation with a S.W.A.T. team. “I wrote that song for [the Hollywood Police] and I want them to hear it. They were all very nice to me, in that situation, actually worried about my well-being, and they didnt have to be … Phil Campbell [from Motörhead] plays lead on it, which really makes the song something else. I liked it a...

Video : FKA Twigs : #throughglass
Oct 20, 2014 10:56am | My Old Kentucky Blog
FKA Twigs is an artist in the truest since, not only in music, but also using visuals and dancing as an outlet. Today, she revealed a new concept film titled #throughglass that sees her drawing inspiration from choreography inspirations shes searched for using Google Glass, also using the device in filming. It is soundtracked using reworked versions of her songs “Video Girl” and “Glass & Patron”. Calling it captivating would be an understatement. Watch below.
FULL SCREEN: Shabazz Palaces take on the Drug War, Pond explore the final frontier of their apartment
Oct 20, 2014 10:53am | Chart Attack
Full Screen collects all of the remarkable videos we've seen in the last 24 hours. This week, new videos from Shabazz Palaces, Thurston Moore and POND.
Shabazz Palaces, "Motion Sickness"
The recent surge in the USA's paramilitary SWAT raids on drug offenders gives "Motion Sickness" a colour of tension rarely seen in most full-length films. But TEAN's clip for the Seattle avant-rap duo flavours its politics with the strain of vibrant Afrofuturism long held by the band (and hip-hop in general). Our lead is a mother, reality star, and drug dealer. She floats around set (in a nod to the iconic Boogie Nights sequence) and takes care of her daughter and product with the images of disaster and outer space never far from the frame.
Shabazz Palaces's new album Lese Majesty is out now via Sub Pop.
Thurston Moore, "Speak To The Wild"
"Protect your child from empty empire." In that lyric lies the beginnings of the premise to the former Sonic Youth frontman's new video, directed by Swedish photographer Santiago Mostyn. A mother and son's forest expedition starts off slightly symbolic and ominous and gets full Wicker Man after the boy wanders off on his own, and runs across some strange and beautiful figures and one stalker in blackface. It's an uncomfortable choice considering the mother is white and her son is biracial, but it's shot with enough flair and b...
R.I.P. John Holt
Oct 20, 2014 10:52am | StereoGum
The Guardian reports that John Holt, the longtime reggae star, died in a London hospital yesterday. No cause of death has been announced. Holt was 69.
Kal Marks Zimmerman (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 20, 2014 10:47am | StereoGum
The last time we heard new music from Boston-based Kal Marks was back in 2013, when they released their full-length Life Is Murder, a record that teetered on the edge of existential dread and absolute, self-assured conviction. For anyone who loved Life Is Murder, Kal Marks’ new song off their forthcoming EP, Just A Lonely Fart, boasts a similar aesthetic. While “Zimmerman” does make reference to George Zimmerman, it is also a song that attempts to breach larger themes of injustice. “Zimmerman” was written shortly after the trial’s conclusion in the summer of 2013, and guitarist and lead singer Carl Shane commented:
Smashing Pumpkins release "Being Beige" from new LP (the one with Tommy Lee on drums)
Oct 20, 2014 10:47am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
'Monuments To An Elegy' Artwork
Billy Corgan's set to release a new Smashing Pumpkins album (with Tommy Lee on drums) called Monuments To An Elegy on December 9, and its first single "Being Beige" is out now via Rolling Stone. While we're probably never getting another Siamese Dream, this definitely doesn't sound bad. It's a nice mid-tempo rocker that would fit next to some of the stuff he did in Zwan.

Watch FKA Twigs Concept Film For Google Glass
Oct 20, 2014 10:46am | StereoGum
FKA Twigs stars in and directs a new video called “#throughglass” that acts as both an impressive showcase for Tahliah Barnett’s dancing and a weird commercial for Google Glass, which is featured prominently in the visuals. (They call it a “concept film.”) Twigs is joined by an cadre of dancers who all have some crazy awesome makeup effects going on. The video is set to reworked versions of “Video Girl” and an unreleased Twigs track called “Glass & Patron.” Watch below, via fkatwigs.glass.
Thurston Moore Speak To The Wild Video
Oct 20, 2014 10:45am | StereoGum
Thurston Moore’s new solo LP, The Best Day, is due out tomorrow (although you can already stream it here). Today, we get a video for “Speak To The Wild,” the sprawling 8-minute tempest that opens the album. In the cryptic clip, a mother gets separated from her child in a forest that conveniently also seems to be inhabited by creepy, cloak-wearing cultists. It’s not entirely clear what’s actually going on, but, soundtracked by the ebbs and flows of Moore’s and James Sedwards’ twin-guitar assault, it sure is engaging. Director Santiago Mostyn shares a few words about the thought behind the video:
