DFA throwing 'Summer Soiree' at The Wick w/ NYC live debut of Museum of Love ++ DJs Holy Ghost!, Nancy Whang, more
Aug 31, 2014 12:19pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Museum of Love

DFA Records threw one helluva party last year to celebrate their 12th Anniversary. This year they're throwing another party, a smaller scale summer soiree if you will (actually, that's what they're calling it), at The Wick on August 23. It will feature the NYC live debut of Pat Mahony's new band, The Museum of Love, plus DJ sets from Sinkane, Nancy Whang, Holy Ghost, plus a "special guest TBA."  Tickets for the show go on sale Monday (8/4) at noon.

In related news, you can catch Sinkane performing live at The Lot LIC Music & Film Series kickoff show which happens Saturday (8/2) afternoon (3 - 9 PM) and is free.

The Juan Maclean, who have a new album out soon and seem suspiciously absent from the DFA party lineup (along with Shit Robot and you-know-who), will be DJing at Output on August 16 as part of the afternoon "Kaviar Disco Club" party (tickets).

Flyer for the DFA Summer Soiree and Sinkane's The Lot show, plus a couple Museum of Love tracks, below...

The Life of Arthur Brown and 'Zim Zam Zim'
Aug 29, 2014 4:35am | Drowned In Sound

Did you achieve everything you wanted since you started making music, Arthur?

(Scoffs) No

How so?

Well one of the things I wanted was round, spherical, transparent fun palaces that were projected from the inside and the out. I saw one in 1968 in a vision I had.

Arthur Brown, as you might have guessed, isnt your typical interviewee. Hes not your typical anything, in fact. The above quote is one of many anecdotes which lace our time together. Just at the point you think it cant get any more ridiculous, hell casually recall the time he used to sing inside a14ft hypodermic syringe with his former band Kingdom Come. Or hell remember the time he went into federal prisons in Texas to lead Shamanic trance-dancing therapy sessions for inmates, as one does. Even his more believable stories are farfetched compared to most, for example playing the first Glastonbury festival ("it was quite an innocent affair) or touring with Jimi Hendrix. Not that hes boasting, hes just one of those guys whos got much better stories than you. Here is a man who has lived and has many stories to tell.

One imagines had he not chosen to become a singer and the self-proclaimed God of Hellfire, he would have also made for an excellent tour guide. We are invited to meet Brown on the edge of the Sussex downs in Lewes where he now resides to discuss his new, crowd-funded album Zim Zam Zim, the 72 year olds first record in nearly a decade. He courteous...

What's going on Friday? (Joanna Gruesome, Handsome Family, Single Mothers, Una Bestia Incontrolable & more)
Aug 28, 2014 11:21pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Joanna Gruesome @ Shea Stadium earlier this week (more by Dylan Johnson)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Joanna Gruesome, Big Ups @ South Street Seaport (FREE)
Joanna Gruesome pull equally from indie pop and aggressive punk, and the energy of their super-fun live shows leans more towards the latter. Big Ups pull from early '90s post-hardcore, and like JG, their live show is really where it's at. This show is free -- a great way to start off your Labor Day Weekend.

Handsome Family, Richard Buckner, Cereus Bright @ Rough Trade
True Detective may not have scored much at this year's Emmys, but the hit HBO show certainly brought deserved attention to veteran Americana gothic band Handsome Family via "Far From Any Road," which was used as the theme song.

Single Mothers, Dope Body, Vulture Shit, Ed Schrader's Music Beat @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Canada's Single Mothers have been making highly promising literate punk for a few years now, and this year they're finally ready to release their long-awaited debut LP. The rest of the bill is great too, with noise rockers Dope Body, guitar-less punks Vulture Shit, and post-punks Ed Schrader's Music Beat.

Love as Laughter, August Wells, Prince Rupert's Drops @ Baby's All Right
Sam Jayne has fronted various incarnations of indie rock band Love As Laughter for...

Not sure where this video comes from, but here’s a last minute contender for your late-night jam of the summer: a new & improved, Don Bolles-produced version of Ariel Pink‘s “Shower Me With Lipstick“, very possibly taken from his just-finished forthcoming LP for 4AD:

Watch: The Weeknds video for King of the Fall
Aug 28, 2014 7:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Following the X-rated clip for “Often”, The Weeknd takes a slightly more low-key approach in the visuals for “King of the Fall”. Here, Abel Tesfaye takes the lyric about going “all night in my city to the fall” and runs with it. Well, actually, walks with it is more accurate. Aided by some neat-o slow-motion, the R&B crooner takes a lovely stroll through his hometown of Toronto, visiting random hot spots and exclusive night clubs along the way. Never before has walking seemed so unbelievably sensuous.

Take a tour with the King himself when you watch below.

“King of the Fall” also happens to be the name of Tesfaye’s upcoming four-stop tour with Jhene Aiko and ScHoolboy Q. Find those dates below.

The Weeknds King of Fall 2014 Tour Dates:
09/19 Brooklyn, NY @ Barclays Center
09/21 Toronto, Canada @ Molson Ampitheatre

The Weeknd King Of The Fall Video
Aug 28, 2014 6:40pm | StereoGum

The Weeknd shared one-off track “King Of The Fall” earlier this year to promote the announcement of a five-date tour with ScHoolboy Q and Jhené Aiko. Just a few weeks before that tour is set to begin, he’s shared a video for the song. It’s a typical Weeknd affair, featuring slick production values and pretty girls, all while Abel Tesafaye walks around in slo-mo and pretends to be an innocent observer even as his lyrics betray otherwise. Watch below.

Song : Tusks : Burn
Aug 28, 2014 6:00pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

This might be one of the most attractively heartbreaking tunes we have heard in a quite awhile. “Burn” from London’s Emily Underhill, who goes by the name Tusks, appears on her EP, Ink, out now via Australia’s Left of Field Records. It is made up of four songs and two remixes with each standing out in their own way. She combines piano-based ballads integrating experimental electronic and ambient flourishes. Her voice absolute glides. Listen to “Burn” below and the entire EP here. If you are really into it, you can head here for a chance to win a vinyl copy.


Stream : TOPS : Picture You Staring LP
Aug 28, 2014 5:29pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Next week on September 2nd, Montreal’s TOPS will release their sophomore LP, Picture You Staring, via Arbutus. The album is a flawless blend of past and contemporary musical styles equating to one of the better releases you will hear this year. Don’t take our opinion though, listen to it in full below ahead of next week’s release and drift away to the romantic, lomographic soundscapes painted throughout.

Also, those in and around Indianapolis, be sure to catch them live with the equally compelling Wampire as MOKB Presents brings them to The Hi-Fi on October 9th. You can find the full details here. This is a double header that is sure not to be missed.
