Death by Audio throwing free 24-hour drone marathon this weekend in back loft w/ Will Sheff, Excepter, Greg Fox, more
Oct 24, 2014 8:47pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Back when Death by Audio was known as the Sugar Factory, they used to have shows in the loft space adjacent to what's now the main show space. They call that space The Ranch and it looks like they're having shows again there, starting with a marathon drone event called Holly Jolloween which starts Saturday (10/25) at 7 PM and goes till 7 PM Sunday (10/26):

To kick off the final month of madness at Death By Audio, we're hosting a 24-hour wall of sound in the loft space behind the venue. Every performance will overlap with the set before and after, so that there will not be a second of silence for the duration of the day.
Musicians involved in the droning include Will Sheff, Greg Fox, Excepter, Oliver Ackerman (A Place to Bury Strangers), Travis Johnson (Grooms), and lots more. The event is free and entrance to The Ranch is the door just to the right of DbA's on S. 2nd St.

List of participating Holly Jolloween drone performers below...

Depeche Mode perfoms Enjoy The Silence from Berlin watch
Oct 24, 2014 4:49pm | Cosequence Of Sound

On November 17th, Depeche Mode will release Live in Berlin, a live album and concert film directed by Anton Corbijn. Capturing the band’s two-night stand at the O2 World in Berlin, Germany last November, the film features two hours of never-before-seen concert footage. For a sneak peek, the band and Corbijn have shared a performance of “Enjoy The Silence”, from 1990’s Violator. Between the sold-out crowd’s ginormous sing-along with the band and the maddening drum solo, it’s an anthemic bit of footage that’s easy to get swept up into.

“Depeche Mode has a strong following in the German capital and the film tries to capture the highlights of these concerts as well as that special connection through interviews with fans and bands alike,” Corbijn said in a statement.

Watch it below.

Corbijn also helmed a companion documentary dubbed Alive in Berlin, featuring footage of the full live show inter-spliced with behind-the-scenes footage, interviews with the band and their fans, and a two-song acoustic session.

A deluxe edition package includes both films, as well as a two-disc live album, a Blu-ray CD version of the band’s latest album, Delta Machine, and a 16-page booklet. Live in Berlin will also be available in standalone CD and DVD packages.

Check Out Revealing Zoomed-Out Views Of Classic Album Covers
Oct 24, 2014 4:40pm | StereoGum

In this era of Instagram, we all know just how easy it is to crop the hell out of a picture to remove from the fringes all unwanted detritus (i.e., our friends) and maximize the attractiveness of the image’s primary subject (i.e., ourself). But back in the day you needed a degree in graphic design and $10,000 worth of equipment to even consider such wizardry! Which is probably why we simply accept classic album covers as contained universes, never really considering the broader context in which those images were captured. But not anymore! British design agency Aptitude has taken a handful of album covers and graphically extrapolated what was going on beyond the borders of those images as they were initially presented to the world. Yes, some of them are fanciful, but I’m pretty sure that Adele cover is just about 100% accurate. Check out a few of them in the gallery above, and go here for the full set.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week
Oct 24, 2014 4:04pm | StereoGum

I have been awake since Run The Jewels dropped RTJ2 around 3 this morning, and I am barely keeping my brain from turning into pink fuzz, so I will forgo my usual state-of-the-music video paragraph here and tell you that you don’t need to watch any of these videos. They’re good, but you have no burning need to see any of them. After all, RTJ2 is in the world now. I strongly recommend that you throw that on, close your eyes, and put your face through a window. If you must watch this week’s picks, though, they’re below.

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
Oct 24, 2014 3:44pm | StereoGum

This week was brutal here in NYC as the city got hit with widespread panic and potentially unstoppable plague. Yes, dear readers, CMJ is back! We also had our hands full with plenty of great songs, including a few that didn’t make our 5 Best. There are two songs in particular that deserve a mention, but were too divisive to make the list: Taylor Swift’s “Welcome To New York” and Ariel Pink’s”Black Ballerina.” Those two songs couldn’t be more different musically, but both managed to spawn some pretty reverent and furious responses. In the end they canceled each other out, but that just made room for other stuff — just as worthy, maybe more so. Check ’em out.


Watch Ryan Adams Play Stay With Me His, Not Sam Smiths In A Spotify Session
Oct 24, 2014 3:41pm | StereoGum

“Stay With Me” is one of the most Bryan-Adams-y songs on Ryan’s new highly Bryan-esque self-titled LP. It is not a cover of the Sam Smith song; in fact, there’s a good chance Adams has never heard Smith’s “Stay With Me” and doesn’t know who Smith is. Anyway, the live version of Adams’ own “Stay With Me” that he performed for a recent Spotify Session is quite good, and you should watch it below.


Watch Depeche Mode Play Enjoy The Silence From New Live In Berlin Concert Film
Oct 24, 2014 3:25pm | StereoGum

Depeche Mode employed longtime visual director Anton Corbijn to film two concerts at O2 World Berlin last November, and he’s compiling his footage into a new concert film called Live In Berlin. The movie’s out on DVD 11/17, but the band shared a clip of “Enjoy The Silence” to stoke our anticipation. And it does! Dave Gahan really Jaggers it up, and that’s some serious set design they’ve got there. Enjoy the lack of silence below.

Widowspeak / Homeshake / Dinner / Megabog

Captured Tracks threw a CMJ week day party at Baby's All Right on Thursday (10/23) with some of their newer signings, plus the only show this week from Widowspeak. The day featured LA band Girl Tears, Seattle's scrappy pop band Megabog, Mac DeMarco cohorts Homeshake, the part-guided-meditation-part-dance-party that is Dinner. Pictures from those sets are in this post -- we missed opener Juan Wauters (sorry, Juan).

Meanwhile, in the front room, Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy and Mac DeMarco were spinning tunes. A couple shots of them, and lots more pics of the bands are below...

Irving Plaza Ebola benefit on sale
Oct 24, 2014 2:19pm | Brooklyn Vegan

By Klaus Kinski

A few days ago I mentioned that Irving Plaza will be playing host to at Doctors Without Borders Benefit on Wednesday November 19. Unbelievably in the few days that have elapsed since that post, ebola has officially shat itself upon our doorstep. Looks like I'll have to curtail all of my various hobbies that involve playing with human feces, blood, and saliva amIright? Anyhow, tickets for that benefit are officially onsale. Tickets are being sold in two tiers; $60 general admittance and $110 VIP admittance which allows bearers access better seating/standing. The line-up currently consists of hosts Greg Barris and Jena Friedman and will feature appearances from Fred Armisen, Jim Gaffigan, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Hannibal Buress, Ted Leo, and more TBA. AKA, this is going to sell out. So pony up the dough because this ebola shizz is serious biz.

Video : Tourist : Wait
Oct 24, 2014 2:11pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Having already released the very good Patterns EP earlier this year, William Phillips, better known as producer Tourist, recently returned with new song “Wait” and new record deal in tow with Polydor. The song will serve as the lead single to his forthcoming debut album slated for the very near future. The video for the song uses is in black and white utilizing imagery of elements such as water, smoke and light to accentuate the pulsating beats of the song along with balancing the “intricate and delicate” and “intense and beefy” production. Watch below.
