Om touring this fall with Watter (members of Grails and Slint) (dates & related news)
Jul 23, 2014 2:37pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey

Om at the Met in 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)

Masters of metallic hypnosis, Om have been touring in short bursts this year. Back in April, they played a handful of dates out west. In October, eastern drone-heads get their opportunity to check out the doomy and dubby trio along with the supergroup Watter that features members of Grails and Slint. The bands have announced stops in places like Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago. The two will play NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on October 5. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 25. The full tour schedule appears below.

Of course, the reason Om make these short, regional hops is because their members have packed planners. Al Cisneros is set to tour with Sleep in August, including a stop at NYC's Stage 48 on August 25. In case you missed it, Sleep also exhaled a song for the first time in 20 years. Emil Amos -- who also plays in Grails -- put the finishing touches on his solo Holy Sons album The Fact Facer which will see release through Thrill Jockey on September 23 (preorder). And Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe has his share of engagements under his Lichens moniker.

As for their future stage-sharers Watter, the Zak Riles, Tyler Trotter, and Britt Walford band released their debut This World in May. Like Om, the band emphasiz...

Watch Narduwar Interview Yung Lean
Jul 23, 2014 2:35pm | CMJ

The best Narduwar interviews are the ones where everyone seems to be having fun and Lydia Lunch isn’t mad the whole time. Even though Swedish rapper Yung Lean’s crew is known as the Sad Boys, they all fell on the fun end of the spectrum when Narduwar caught up with them in Vancouver. The interview below includes the typical Narduwar fanfare like gifts, odd stories, personal secrets and atypical stuff like when Yung Gud talks about his fat Drake dream or when Yung Lean turns the tables on Narduwar and gives him a gift. Watch it below.

Melted Toys released new album, on tour, playing NYC with Free Time who have a new 7" (dates, streams)
Jul 23, 2014 2:34pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Melted Toys

San Francisco's Melted Toys are currently on tour supporting their new album, Melted Toys 2, which came out a couple weeks ago on Underwater Peoples. Like their debut, the album falls somewhere between psych and indiepop, easy-to-swallow and effervescent, with occasional halucinatory side effects. You can stream it via Rdio. That tour pulls into NYC this Friday (7/25) at Cake Shop with their Underwater Peoples labelmates Free Time and Street Gnar also on the bill.

Free Time

Speaking of, Australian expats Free Time have a new single, "Esoteric Tizz," that will be out via Underwater People on August 19. The A-side was was recorded by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods; the B-side, "Guess Work," was recorded by Real Estate frontman Martin Courtney and you can stream that below.

In addition to the Cake Shop show with Melted Toys, Free Time have a couple other NYC shows coming up: August 7 Baby's All Right with Spectre Folk and Words With Frank Linetti (tickets); and Glasslands on September 21 with fellow Brooklyn Aussies Scott & Charlene's Wedding (tickets).

All Melted Toys dates are listed, along with the Free Time stream, below.

Hear TOPS sad, groovy new Way to be Loved
Jul 23, 2014 2:33pm | Chart Attack

TOPS, the Montreal loft scene's easy listening pop group, have a new album out this year on Arbutus Records. "Way To Be Loved" boasts a fuller sound than the glittering jangle of their debut Tender Opposites. Still, an odd brew of pity and summertime crush niftily marries the band's melancholy streak with their jiggy, synth-speckled grooves.

TOPS's new album Picture You Staring is out September 2 via Arbutus; pre-order it here.

Listen: Nicholas Nicholas Cave
Jul 23, 2014 2:20pm | CMJ

Brooklyn Brooklyn band band Nicholas Nicholas (actually the project of a dude named Chris Masullo) is dropping a new cassette next month via Miscreant/Frenchkiss. The cassette, Wrong, was mastered by Warren Hildebrand (Foxes In Fiction/Orchid Tapes) who seems to be everywhere these days.

Another thing that’s everywhere (transitions!) is Masullo’s voice in this new song, Cave. There’s like 30 of him filtered through half industrial percussion, half iced-out guitars and looped around until it sounds like a bedroom choir in a…cave. Listen below.

Juicy J @ Terminal 5 w/ Vinny Cha$e + Kid Art & Grahf - pics
Jul 23, 2014 2:16pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Juicy J @ T5 - 7/22/14

"How many people know the history of Juicy J?" said Juicy. "What y'all know about that Three 6 Mafia?" From that moment on Juicy took us back to the 2000s, with "Poppin My Collar," "Sippin' on Some Syrup," "Slob on My Knob" and of course "Stay Fly."

For the entire set--which was much longer than one would have expected--Juicy had the crowd hype as he took everyone down memory lane. For over two decades he has seen success with Three 6 Mafia and as an individual artist. He even took a moment to ask the crowd if he should quit. That thought was quickly put to rest, as he ended his performance with "We in this Bxtch" and "Show Out."

I mean, if he did retire, who would supply the world with ratchet music? [XXL]

Juicy J is currently on another leg of his 'Never Sober' tour ahead of the release of his planned new LP, The Hustle Continues. The tour brought him through NYC last night (7/22) for a big show at Terminal 5 that saw him playing plenty of his recent hits ("Bandz a Make Her Dance," "Show Out," etc), other peoples' recent hits that he guests on (like Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" and Miley Cyrus' "23"), some cuts from his time in Three 6 Mafia and more. His older brother/collaborator Project Pat was supposed to open, but at the last minute he was replaced by Vinny Cha$e + Kid Art and Grafh. Pictures from the show are in ...

Castevet break up
Jul 23, 2014 2:05pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey

Castevet at MDF 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)

NYC-based progressive blackened metallers Castevet quietly broke up on Monday, posting the following message on their homepage:

Castevet is no more. There is no single reason or event driving this decision; it is based on the need of each individual involved to continue to develop their vision within new and existing projects. To put it simply, it is time to move on.

Thank you to all who have supported Castevet since our inception in 2006.

Castevet were known for their patient, knotty, and dynamic take on black metal, breaking out with 2010 full-length Mounds of Ash and releasing the well-received follow-up Obsian last year. (Read more of what we wrote about them on IO.) As for the mentioned existing projects, singer/guitarist Andrew Hock is currently in Psalm Zero, who just played a show with Black Anvil. Bassist Nicholas McMaster is splitting his time between Astomatous, Bloody Panda, Geryon, and Krallice. Geryon and Krallice will be a part of the Virus double-date at NYC's Saint Vitus at the end of October.

Streams of Mounds of Ash and Obsian appear below...

Mixtape Of The Week: Shlohmo & Jeremih No More
Jul 23, 2014 1:43pm | StereoGum

Jeremih and Shlohmo are an unlikely combination for a lot of obvious reasons. One is a black guy from Chicago who sings slick, radio-directed R&B, and the other is a white guy from Los Angeles who produces tricky, intricate instrumental bass music. They probably would’ve never gotten together if Yours Truly hadn’t matched them up to make the single “Bo Peep (Do U Right)” as part of the Songs From Scratch series more than a year ago, and they probably wouldn’t have kept working together, making the new free EP No More, if that first song hadn’t turned out to be something transcendent. But beyond the surface differences, both of them have something much more important in common: They’re both really, really good at what they do, and that’s the reason we still know their names.


Perfect Pussy and Pity Sex opening for New Pornographers

Sounds like show bookers in Detroit are definitely amusing themselves!

The Detroit show is September 6th. Most of New Porn's tour is later in the fall, and with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart.

Devendra Banhart Golden Girls (LIARS Remix)
Jul 23, 2014 1:42pm | StereoGum

Last year, Devendra Banhart put out the new album Mala, which included the brief but chilling folk song “Golden Girls.” Now, Liars — who this year put out the great and overlooked album Mess — have stretched that minute and a half to nearly 10 minutes in their sprawling remix. What begins as a minimal techno rework of the song eventually shifts into uneasy ambience before coming back to life as a percussive and creepy dance track that fits with the vibe of their new album. Listen to the remix, the original, and “Thank You For Being A Friend,” the classic opening theme to the The Golden Girls, below.

Jul 23, 2014 1:37pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Jessie Ware, who features on the new SBTRKT album, recently announced a new album and tour which brings her to NYC on October 28 at Brooklyn Masonic Temple.

Registration is open through July 28 at noon UK time, and if you end up being one of the lucky ones, you'll find out by July 30 with a link to buy tickets. Jessie adds, "your name will be printed on each ticket so you can't flog them to touts!"

Youll Never Get To Heaven Adorn + Caught In Time, So Far Away
Jul 23, 2014 1:30pm | Gorilla Vs Bear

Thanks to our friends DIANA for the heads up on London, Ontario, analog dream-pop duo You’ll Never Get To Heaven, and the group’s entrancing and elegant new EP, Adorn. Listen to the record’s gorgeous title track, and the every-bit-as-lovely opener “Caught In Time, So Far Away“, which sounds a bit like Chromatics at their most haunting and ethereal, below. Adorn was originally self-released by YNGTH earlier this year on cassette, and will get new life on 12″ later this summer via Montreal label Psychic Handshake; listen to EP in its entirety (including a dreamy Eno cover) here.

Death Valley Girls Announce New EP, Electric High, Share Tour Dates
Jul 23, 2014 1:26pm | CMJ

Death Valley Girls. Their new EP, Electric High, comes out August 19. The cover art screams all 1979-Raw Records-cum-1990s-Rip Off Records punk. Their sound skews a little more riff-rock snarl. The femme singer, Bonnie Bloomgarden, formerly of 2000s NYC greasers, the Witnesses, is almost comically snotty, almost. They had a cassette on Burger (sold out), and apparently they’re based in L.A., but their dive-ready crunch implies cold city grit. Patty Schemel from Hole and Upset is in it. And that’s about all you need to know for now, pal. They’ve got a tour coming up this fall, so you can go to the shows and ask them yourselves, because they’re not telling.

Tour Dates For Death Valley Girls:
07/27 – Los Angeles, CA – The Echo (Part Time Punks) ^
08/16 – Los Angeles, CA – Echo Park Rising
08/31 – North Folk, CA – Bandit Town Allnight Campout
09/30 – Los Angeles CA – Echo *
10/04 – Joshua Tree CA – Babes Rideout 2014
10/07 – San Diego CA – Casbah #
10/08 – Los Angeles CA – Bootleg Theatre #
10/10 – San Francisco CA – Bottom of the Hill #
10/11 – Portland OR – Dante’s #
10/12 – Seattle WA – The Tractor #

Band To Watch: For Everest
Jul 23, 2014 1:04pm | StereoGum

One of my favorite albums of all time is Brand New’s The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me. It’s an album that’s built as much on atmosphere as it is on songcraft, luxuriating in aimlessness tempered with short bursts of well-orchestrated chaos. When I learned that For Everest made a conscious effort to emulate that feeling on their new EP, No Jazz Rock, everything I knew I liked about the band clicked into place. Nowhere is this influence more apparent than EP centerpiece “Beyond The Brush” — it sprawls out in the same way as the very best of Devil And God, following certain whims but never becoming overindulgent. Comparing an emo-adjacent band to Brand New is either an easy out for people who don’t know much about emo music or a ringing endorsement, so let’s consider this the latter.
