Video Vault: Mike Watt, Foo Fighters and Eddie Vedder give Chicago a once-in-a-life performance
Mar 6, 2015 2:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Welcome to the latest edition of the Video Vault, a new series in which Consequence of Sound and Chicagos iconic JBTV offer you classic concert footage from over 30 years of tape preserved in the studios extensive collection. Many of these have never before been seen by the general public.

If you thought Rage Against the Machine unleashing Bulls on Parade over Chicago or Smashing Pumpkins delivering an album release show was epic, you haven’t seen nothing yet. Today, we bring you a full-length 1995 show from Mike Watt at The Metro, but the punk rock legend wasn’t alone that night. His opening acts were Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedders side-project Hovercraft and another budding Seattle band called Foo Fighters. And with no band to call his own on the tour, Watt was joined on stage by Vedder, Dave Grohl, and Pat Smear.

We unearthed a The Jon Stewart Show visit by the touring supergroup a few months back, but now we’re pleased to present the entire hour-long Metro show in all its glory, a true piece of rock history. Below, check out their performance of “Chinese Firedrill”, and head to JBTVs website to unlock the entire concert.

Western Mass post-hardcore rippers Blessed State are playing a few shows in the Northeast this weekend with New Haven's Worn Leather, including two shows in NYC on Saturday (3/7). The first is an afternoon show at Baby's All Right for the venue's "First Annual Wake & Bake Festival." Also playing that is Cobalt Cranes, Savants, Spirit Plate, Winstons, Surfbort, High Waisted and Drone Ranger. $5 tickets are on sale.

That night, they play The Flat with Summer Saints and Long Drag. And in April, they play a show in their home state with neighbors California X, who play NYC tonight.

After this weekend's shows, Blessed State will begin recording some new material to follow last year's debut LP, Head Space. If you haven't heard that yet, you can stream it, along with their list of dates, below...

The Rezillos releasing first new album since the '70s (stream it)
Mar 6, 2015 2:07pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Scotland's The Rezillos (for a while known as The Revillos) were one of the more fun bands of new wave's early days, still playing at punk speeds but with good time lyrics, pop smarts and the distinctive gruff, nasally vocals of Eugene Reynolds, sweetened by co-lead Faye Fife. Songs like ""Flying Saucer Attack," "Can't Stand My Baby," and "(My Baby Does) Good Sculptures" are classics of the era
Bill wrote the above about punk/new wave vets The Rezillos in 2012, just before they played their first NYC show in ten years. Now they're set to release their first album since the '70s, ZERO, next week (3/10) via Metropolis Records (pre-order). We've got the premiere of the full album stream in this post. Most of it still sounds like the late '70s punk era (though with modern recording quality), but it does dip its toes into new territory. Here's what they said about the record:
Shock horror FAY FIFE reads book and has come to the off kilter conclusion that the term ZERO alludes to 'liminality' : a place where anything can happen, where all or nothing screams in our face and where transcendence and decrepitude mix like a piquant stew; or is it porridge? - that's the thing with a zero entity; it might be nothing but it's probably infinity.

Sun Kil Moon goes electric on new song Ali/Spinks 2 listen
Mar 6, 2015 2:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Sun Kil Moon (aka Mark Kozelek) has shared a new track from his forthcoming studio LP, Universal Themes. Like much of Kozelek’s material, “Ali/Spinks 2″ is a seemingly meandering stream of consciousness, though here the music takes on some new shades. Over nearly seven minutes, it moves from chugging ’90s sounds to screeching guitar solos to laid back porch rock.

It may be more electric than fans of last year’s Benji might expect, but it’s still 100% Kozelek as his lyrics reference actor Steve Railsback, True Detective, and his opinions on John Densmore’s tell-all about The Doors, Riders of the Storm.

Universal Themes is due June 2nd via Caldo Verde Records. Last year, Kozelek released the album track “The Possum”, which you can listen to here.



Sun Kil Moon shares new song from LP, announces tour
Mar 6, 2015 1:44pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Sun Kil Moon's new album Universal Themes comes out June 2 via his own Caldo Verde Records, and he's now released a new song from it, "Ali/Spinks 2." Listen below, via Spin.

SKM has also announced a tour. He's playing shows in Asia and Australia this month, and he'll hit Europe and North America later in the year. Some shows feature Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley (who also played on the new album) on drums, and some have Slowdive's Neil Halstead on guitar.

The tour hits NYC on October 9 at Town Hall, the same venue he played here last year. Neither Steve nor Neil are on board for that one though. Tickets should be available soon via Ticketmaster.

All dates are listed, with the new song, below...

Sun Kil Moon shares Universal Themes single Ali/Spinks 2, featuring electric guitar
Mar 6, 2015 1:44pm | Fact Magazine

The new single immediately features something never present on Benji.

It’s hard to think of how to follow an album as overwhelmingly powerful as Sun Kil Moon‘s Benji, our pick for Album Of The Year in 2014, but Mark Kozelek has already done it. Beginning by releasing the ‘Possum‘, Kozelek has gradually released new details about the album Universal Themes. Now his next single, ‘Ali/Spinks 2′, throws another curveball by opening with an electric guitar. Kozelek takes full advantage of the instrument during the song which hits a feedback-filled solo at the center. [via Pitchfork]

Listen to it below and look for Universal Themes on June 2.

Preview Detroit veteran Patrice Scotts debut album, Euphonium
Mar 6, 2015 1:40pm | Fact Magazine

For fans of Detroit deep house.

While Patrice Scott announced Euphonium almost a year ago, it has still yet to be released. That will change on April 27, when the Detroit veterans drops his debut album via his own Sistrum imprint.

The album is said to see Scott explore the “modern sound of deepest Detroit,” its nine tracks described as “sublime and evolved with depth and authenticity as only Scott can convey.”

Preview the LP below. For more Scott, revisit his 2013 FACT mix, which we described as “at once hypnotic and high-velocity, ruthlessly pared-down and generously melodic.” [via XLR8R]

5 times Nathan Fielder tried being a musician
Mar 6, 2015 1:30pm | Chart Attack

Its nothing new for actors and comedians to have a quiet career in another industry. Such is the story of Jason Schwartzmans Coconut Records, Ryan Goslings Dead Mans Bones, and Zooey Deschanels She & Him. For others, they try, but dont necessarily reach full flight. This is the case, unfortunately, for the incredibly underrated musical talents of Nathan For You host Nathan Fielder. Whether its scatting, rapping, or covering famous pop stars, Nathan has his hand in just about every bag.

Lana Del Rey, Born to Die (Nathan Fielder cover)

Back in June 2014, Nathan gave his former hometown Toronto a sneak peak at Season 2 of Nathan For You. In a field polluted by dubstep remixes, Nathan stepped up to the plate to cover the Lana Del Rey hit Born to Die better than anyone has.

Nathan Fielder, "Downtown Brown"

This is Nathans foray into rap. The only thing hes missing is a rapper name. Ive brainstormed a few (so Nathan, if you use any of these please give me a shout out in your next single): Lil Nate, Nate Dogg, Hurricane N, N-Eazy, A$AP Field, Big N, Capital NF Top a.k.a. Puff Dawg, The Notorious N.A.T.E., or Nathan The Rapper. If he keeps writing lines like, I got every STD yet, for some reason, every girl still wants to sleep with me, Im sure, soon enough, Drake will be scouting this Canadian boy.

Side of Smooth, "Morning Walk"

Nathan, along with friend and fellow comedian Chris Locke,...


Liturgy release "Reign Array" from upcoming LP; Psalm Zero and Mivos Quartet opening NYC show
Mar 6, 2015 1:29pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Earlier this year, when the usually-black metal band Liturgy released the first new single "Quetzalcoatl" from their new album The Ark Work (due 3/24 via Thrill Jockey), it was notable for being entirely not metal at all. Sure, metal snobs were quick to point out that Liturgy "were never metal" anyway, but this song was really not metal. This used to be a band with blast beats and abrasive screams. "Quetzalcoatl" is a clean-vocal industrial rock song. I was fully expecting the rest of the album to follow suit, but they actually surprised me.

It's still clean vocals, and it's still mostly not a metal album, but skins master Greg Fox brings back those blast beats on a handful of songs, while the rest of the band crafts more accessible, melodic music than the band was previously known for. That's especially evident on the new 10-minute single "Reign Array." Black metal fans will probably hate this comparison, but Liturgy have made an album that will likely be listened to by many people who don't normally listen to the genre, so here goes: if you like Deafheaven but you're not huge on the screaming, this song could be for you. Listen below.

Liturgy's upcoming tour includes a hometown show on April 15 at Saint Vitus, and openers for that have been announced. It's with new-music ensemble Mivos Quartet, and another band...


'Gimme Shelter' & 'Grey Gardens' director Albert Maysles, RIP
Mar 6, 2015 1:27pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Albert Maysles, second right, with brother David, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts, 1969

Mr. Maysles (pronounced MAY-zuls) departed from documentary conventions by not interviewing his films' subjects. As he explained in an interview with The New York Times in 1994, "Making a film isn't finding the answer to a question; it's trying to capture life as it is."

The Maysles brothers made several well-regarded documentaries in the 1960s, but it was "Gimme Shelter" (1970), about the Rolling Stones' 1969 American tour, that brought them widespread attention. It included a scene of a fan being stabbed to death at the group's concert in Altamont, Calif., and the critical admiration for the film was at least partly countered by concerns that it was exploiting that violence.

But the film captured and held the public's attention for decades; it was the basis of a musical of the same title, for which both Christine Ebersole and Mary Louise Wilson won Tony Awards in 2007 after it had transferred to Broadway from Playwrights Horizons. A 2009 HBO film version won six Emmy Awards, including those for best television movie and best lead actress (Jessica Lange). - [New York Times]

Filmmaker and verite pioneer Albert Maysles died Thursday night (3/5) at his home in Manhattan. He was 88. With his brother David, Maysles has made some of the best and best-known documenta...

Rocko Lil Girl Shit (Feat. Young Thug)
Mar 6, 2015 1:22pm | StereoGum
Young Thug and Rocko represent different sides of the Atlanta rap coin. Thug is a bugged-out fabulist, an alien creature sent to earth with a mission to make himself look and sound as glammed-out as possible. Rocko, meanwhile, is a hardheaded literalist, the type who, when he feels like proving how smart he is, makes […]



Prince Playing Spontaneous US Shows, Might Have Contributed A Song To Rihannas Album

Prince’s return to making new music has been a source of great joy for those who worship at the altar of the Purple One. His return to touring, however has been mostly confined to sporadic dates in the UK until now. In support of his new album Art Official Age and 3rdEyeGirl’s debut Plectrumelectrum, Prince […]



Cillie Barnes Facework
Mar 6, 2015 1:04pm | StereoGum
“Facework” wriggles like a centipede across your skin. Cillie Barnes’ voice brims with revulsion and barely-contained disgust, and a thousand tiny legs of sound shoot out of the song’s slim, agile structure. As “Facework” shimmers through each revolving minutia — courtesy of Bright Eyes members Nate Walcott and Mike Mogis, who produced the track — […]
