Watch FKA Twigs Debut Give Up In NYC
Apr 17, 2014 4:00pm | StereoGum

FKA Twigs played a packed show at Glasslands in Brooklyn last night and debuted new music. A recording of a new one seemingly titled “Give Up” is now available and shows that Twigs sounds just as otherworldly live as she does in the studio. Check out the bewitching new song below.


The Week In Pop: 5 Seconds Of Summer And The Evolution Of Pop-Punk Boy Bands
Apr 17, 2014 3:59pm | StereoGum

“She looks so perfect standing there/ In my American Apparel underwear” is the new “I like girls who wear Abercrombie & Fitch.” Fifteen years ago, at the height of boy-band mania, America was bombarded by LFO’s “Summer Girls,” in which bros with magnificently sculpted haircuts and bodacious bods sing-rapped clumsy couplets between harmonious refrains about the reigning prep attire of the day. These days it’s marvelously coifed Aussie mall punks 5 Seconds Of Summer serving up choruses about lovely ladies wearing name-brand garments — or, in the case of breakthrough single “She Looks So Perfect,” undergarments. 5 Seconds Of Summer presents as a rock band, but they register as a boy band. They are teen idols no different from the NKOTBs and 98 Degrees of yesteryear but for a Stratocaster in hand and their logo emblazoned on a kick drum.


Lets raise $5 million and buy Wu-Tang Clans one-of-a-kind album
Apr 17, 2014 3:57pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this month, no doubt between bouts of bitter in-fighting, Wu-Tang Clan announced plans for a one-of-kind album: some 20 years in the making, The Wu Once Upon a Time in Shaolin is to be released as a single, intricate copy and toured across the world’s museums and art galleries, like the rap game Mona Lisa, until sold at auction. While the idea originally seemed laughable, RZA quickly assured the public that the Clan had already received offers upward of $5 million for the musical artifact.

Now, in the hopes of securing the album and distributing it to fans worldwide, two Wu faithful have launched a Kickstarter to raise the aforementioned $5 million.  In their pledge summation, Russell Meyers and Calvin Okoth-Obbo, both of Queens, wrote that they launched the campaign to avoid “some Saudi oil baron’s kid spending his dad’s money to collect a trophy and then (keeping) the album to himself and fans the world over will suffer.”

Reasoning aside, their overall logic is fairly sound. “For all the fans who won’t be able to pay 30-50 bucks to listen to a double album in one sitting, let’s raise enough money to buy this album and then turn around and give it away for free,” they write. “Wu members can still get their CREAM and the rest of us get to enjoy an epic album instead of some uber rich bastard keeping it to hims...

The Hold Steady Easy (Deer Tick Cover) & Deer Tick Constructive Summer (Hold Steady Cover)
Apr 17, 2014 3:56pm | StereoGum

To celebrate the kickoff of their tour together the Hold Steady and Deer Tick have covered each other’s music. The Hold Steady took on “Easy” the lead song off their tour-mates’ album Born On Flag Day while Deer Tick covered “Constructive Summer,” the first song on Stay Positive. Listen to both below.


Watch: Belle and Sebastian cover Journeys Dont Stop Believin
Apr 17, 2014 3:42pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Belle and Sebastian performed for a very special audience recently, joining the Songs for Kids Foundation at the pediatric hospital Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. To help raise the spirits of a group of sick children, the Scottish indie-pop outfit offered up a cover of Journeys mega-hit “Don’t Stop Believin’”. Rather than a typical arena-ready rendition, however, theirs is cute, quaint, and most importantly, totally aww-inspiring. Watch a short clip of the performance below (via Stereogum).

As previously reported, the Glasgow outfit is gearing up for the release of a new album, due out later this year through Matador Records.

Brooklyn school Bishop Ford - where R.E.M., Drake, Miley Cyrus, Juicy J & others made videos, is closing
Apr 17, 2014 3:38pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Protests are underway after Bishop Ford students found out on Monday that the 50+ year old Catholic high school on 19th Street in Windsor Terrace was being shut down due to low enrollment and no money. If you'd like to help try and save it, there's a petition.

You may have never heard of Bishop Ford but you may have heard about their breakdancing teacher and might recognize the school via its iconic radio tower south of Park Slope near GreenWood Cemetery and the Prospect Expressway. You might also recognize some of its interior via vidoes by R.E.M. (directed by Michael Moore), Drake (directed by Kanye West), and Mike WiLL (starring Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J). Watch the (not-very-Catholic) videos filmed at Bishop Ford, below...

Watch: The Wytches Robe For Juda Video, Plus Tour Dates
Apr 17, 2014 3:35pm | CMJ

Wytches – Photo by Steve Gullick

Before Brighton-based garage-psych trio The Wytches embark on their first North American tour, they were kind enough to share with us the video for their dissonant sludge-song Robe For Juda. Captured in Peterborough’s town hall on a VHS camera, this is the home video you wouldn’t show the relatives come Christmas time. The band, along with a few friends, take the stage for a nightmarish talent show that would make even the most proud parents cringe in their folding chairs.

After just a few singles but loads of touring in their native land since 2011, the band is planning an album for release later this year. For now, take a peek below and check out their tour dates while you’re down there.

Listen: Dead Katz Working Hard At Hardly Working
Apr 17, 2014 3:10pm | CMJ

We’ve been following Visalia, CA’s Dead Katz since he landed on our Letters From Bandcamp column, and have gotten pretty attached to his super-faded shoegaze (or, as he calls it, “shitgaze”). At the start of this month we heard the pouty lullaby, I Hate The Feelings I’m Feeling, and today Dead Katz shared Working Hard At Hardly Working. Get your daily dose of heavy reverb with a side of angsty anxiety below.

Listen: The Hold Steady and Deer Tick cover each other
Apr 17, 2014 3:08pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Longtime fans of one anothers music, The Hold Steady and Deer Tick will hit the road this month for a joint U.S. tour. But before then, theyve teamed up in the studio to collaborate on a pair of covers.

Both rock acts dig deep into each other’s respective catalogs, with The Hold Steady tackling “Easy” from Deer Tick’s 2009 album Born on Flag Day, and Deer Tick putting their own spin on “Constructive Summer”, off The Hold Steady’s 2008 LP, Stay Positive. Listen to both covers below (via A.V. Club).

I think that Easy was the first Deer Tick song I ever heard and Ive always thought it had a really cool vibe”, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn told A.V. Club. “It gives me the chills when John [McCauley] does that line about the devil in his eyes. The song is classic Deer Tick, its rock and roll thats passionate and knowing.

Meanwhile, McCauley noted, Craig Finn can bring you right back to the time in your life when partying went hand in hand with ambition. ‘Constructive Summer reminds me how rock and rolls simplicity gives power to heart instead intellectualism.

If this is a preview of what’s to come on their upcoming trek, ticket-holders should be pretty darn excited. Check out all their tour dates below.

Watch Belle & Sebastian Cover Journeys Dont Stop Believin At A Childrens Hospital
Apr 17, 2014 2:54pm | StereoGum

You might expect Belle & Sebastian to cover the Kinks or Nick Drake or 10cc. You might not expect them to cover the most-covered Journey song ever. But it’s impossible to say no to sick kids, and during a recent visit to Children’s Healthcare Of Atlanta for the Songs For Kids Foundation nonprofit, the Scottish indie-pop long-timers tried out a sloppy cover of the song that ended The Sopranos. Watch a short video of it below.


Olga Bell Stavropol Krai
Apr 17, 2014 2:53pm | StereoGum

Before she joined Dirty Projectors during the days of Swing Lo Magellan, Olga Bell was a Band To Watch. Now she’s taken some time to work on solo material again. Her upcoming album, Krai, is sung entirely in Russian and judging from the new single “Stavropol Krai” her intricate vocal-centered performances are as strong as ever and backed by even fuller arrangements. Listen below.
