Title Fight playing shows, released a split w/ Touche Amore (who are working on an LP)
May 20, 2013 8:50am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
KIngston, PA punks Title Fight, whose 2012 emotionally charged post-hardcore record, Floral Green, was one of the best of its kind that year, just returned home from a European tour with Whirr and they've now got some upcoming US shows scheduled for the summer. A full tour announcement hasn't come yet, but they were recently announced for LA's FYF Fest. They've got East Coast shows happening sooner than that though, including the PA stop (6/14) on the Merchandise, Milk Music, and Destruction Unit tour (tickets) and a NYC show aboard a Rocks Off Cruise on June 16. That show is being presented by Shirts for a Cure and tickets for it are on sale now.
As mentioned, on Record Store Day, Title Fight released a split 7" with Touche Amore where the two bands covered each other, and you can now pick up that 7" on grey or pink vinyl at the Deathwish E-Store. The purchase comes with an instant MP3 download of the release. You can also stream a sample of each song below.
Touche Amore, who also play FYF Fest, are working on a new album which is due out this fall via Deathwish. They recently began work on it with producer Brad Wood (Sunny Day Real Estate). Check out a trailer video of the band in studio below.
All Title FIght dates are listed, along with a full stream of Floral Green and all other streams/videos, below...

listen to Giorgio Moroder's new song, Daft Punk collaboration, and BBC radio documentary, see him in NYC tonight
May 20, 2013 8:40am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
Could there have been a more perfect moment for an epic documentary on Giorgio Moroder? The man who, according to the show's very starry (and very generous) presenter Niles Rodgers, invented dance music? On the night that Daft Punk's fourth studio album finally launched, with fitting audacity at the top of the Shard, Radio 2 put out Electric Dreams: The Giorgio Moroder Story, the most enjoyable music documentary I've heard this year. Snippets of recent Daft Punk collaborator Moroder, 73, talking about his life were tacked over some of the best music made in the last century: I Feel Love, Together In Electric Dreams, Now I Need You. In between came New Order's Bernard Sumner, Debbie Harry, Sparks and more, colouring in the detail of what Moroder's music has meant. [The Guardian]The above quote is from The Guardian's review of of the new audio documentary on dance music legend Giorgio Moroder that BBC Radio 2 recently put out, Electric Dreams: The Giorgio Moroder Story. The documentary premiered on May 13, and as of this post, and you can listen to Part 1 below.
Today's a good day to check it out if you haven't yet, because as mentioned, Giorgio will be in NYC TONIGHT (5/20) at Output in Williamsburg to DJ a Deep Space party with T. Williams, Benjamin Damage, and Francois K. The show is part of the Red Bull Music Academy NYC residency and it's Giorgio's first-ever NYC DJ...
Koreless shares melancholy new track
May 20, 2013 8:38am | Fact Magazine
Koreless gifts us another measured, quiet gem with ‘Last Remnants’.
Culled from the Glasgow-based producer’s brand new EP Yugen, which was released today on the Young Turks imprint, ‘Last Remnants’ is one of the most heartfelt offerings from Koreless yet with its fusion of blissful electronics and a gamelan-inspired percussive push. It almost sounds akin to Solaris/Drive soundtrack composer Cliff Martinez’s unmistakable productions and that’s no bad thing at all.
Koreless’s strength comes from his resistance to embellish his compositions with elements that would pander to one particular style or another, and ‘Last Remnants’ excels as a low-key, blissful example of this.
DiS meets John Lydon - Part 1: The Man
May 20, 2013 8:37am | Drowned In Sound
In his first public address on 26 November 1976, in the opening seconds of the Sex Pistols' debut single, Johnny Rotten declared himself "an antichrist". Two years later, John Lydon reintroduced himself to the record-buying public by saying "Hello" on 'Public Image', PiL's debut single. Here, Lydon was starting a new conversation about who he really was: "You never listened to a word that I said / You only seen me for the clothes that I wear", he spat, brilliantly reasserting control over his own public image. This was Lydon ditching the antichrist persona, bringing an end to anarchy in the UK and saying, loudly and clearly, "This is who I really am". The thing is, that was 35 years ago, and unless you're the man himself, the issue of who the real John Lydon is remains up for debate.
This much we do know: John Lydon fronted the Sex Pistols as Johnny Rotten from 1975 to 1978, becoming one of the most influential and iconic figures of the 20th century and, at the same time, the most hated man in Britain. He formed PiL with Keith Levene and Jah Wobble in the aftermath of the Pistols' last gig and the band made a string of ground-breaking albums (how many, depends on who you ask) before a hiatus in 1993.
What followed was an autobiography (Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs), a solo album (1997's Psycho's Path) and a series of strange flirtations with fame: a show on VH1 (Rotten TV), <...
Watch Miguel, Prince, Icona Pop Play Billboard Music Awards 2013
May 20, 2013 8:36am | StereoGum
The Billboard Music Awards have historically been the most low-rent of America’s non-niche music awards shows, but last night, the show had an unexpected viral moment when Miguel, in the middle of a particularly spirited rendition of “Adorn,” attempted to jump over a section of the audience and ended up doing the Hulk Hogan legdrop on some lady’s face. She’s reportedly OK, so don’t let anything get in the way of laughing at everyone’s misfortune; the pratfall happens around the 2:56 mark of the Miguel video below. This instantly became a gif/photoshop meme, so have fun clicking on its various mutations around the internet today.
The show had a few other notable moments. Janelle Monáe and Erykah Badu presented an Icon Award to an afroed Prince, who got to do an absolutely badass bluesy medley with a crack all-female band. Also, Icona Pop performed the song that Icona Pop always performs. Watch the Miguel, Prince, and Icona Pop videos below.
The Lonely Island
May 20, 2013 8:26am | StereoGum
On Saturday night, SNL bid goodbye to some of this past decade’s most prime players via a bit of musical spoof — Fred Armisen as early-punk caricature Ian Rubbish, singing (with Sudekis and Hader, also departing) about it having been a lovely night. It wasn’t as moving as Stefon and Seth Meyers getting married (finally!), but still, it was memorable stuff. As in Armisen’s Ian Rubbish, the piston of sketch comedy music satire is pairing a style of music with subject matter absurdly removed from that genre’s general value system, and this is what the SNL vets of Lonely Island do so well, still. (That, and booking cameos.) The new track “Diaper Money” does this, too, albeit without cameo — all bravado and swaggering materialism about being a tight-leashed Park Slope dad spending all his money on diapers, a wife who won’t let you touch her, and a comfy funeral casket. This is a fun video to watch if you just broke up (you don’t want to be about this life), presumably less so if you’re about to get married (though that isn’t stopping Samberg). Check it here:
Liars played 2 NYC shows (Le Poisson Rouge pics & setlist); Doldrums' van got broken into, never made it to NYC

Liars @ Le Poisson Rouge - 5/19/13
Onetime Brooklyn residents Liars returned to their home city for two shows over the weekend. The first happened on Saturday (5/18) at The Met and the second happened on Sunday (5/19) at a more traditional concert space, Le Poisson Rouge, where it was relocated to from its original Brooklyn Masonic Temple location. Pictures from the latter are in this post.
Lower Dens were initially supposed to open that show but quickly dropped off and were replaced by Toronto's Doldrums. However, Doldrums never made it across the border (missing their Ran Tea House show too) as their van got broken into and Airick Woodhead's laptop and passport got stolen. Via Twitter: "hey my van was broken into & along with my laptop with a years worth of writing and a box containing nothing but my fav CDs from teenagedom."
So Liars ended up taking the stage at their originally schedule time of 8:30 with no opener, and played a set that was a little over 75 minutes and included three encores. More pictures from the show (including one of the setlist) below...

Tame Impala announces departure of bassist Nick Allbrook
May 20, 2013 8:04am | Cosequence Of Sound
(Nick Albrook, pictured second to the left)
Few bands have had as much success recently as Tame Impala, yet that hasn’t stopped bassist Nick Allbrook from walking away. In an official statement, the band announced that Allbrook will be “hopping off the Tame Impala band wagon so that he can try and screw his head back on, and make an attempt to assimilate back into society. A task the rest of us fear we will one day have to perform….”
Allbrook further explained his decision in an interview with NME: “All bands and projects and stuff will keep going, it’s just hard to keep them all going if you’re touring all the time,” he said. “The only bad part will be not seeing my mates every day. I love them more than anything.”
Allbrook will be replaced in the band by Cam Avery of the band Pond, which ironically enough is fronted by Allbrook himself.
Tame Impala will spend much of the summer touring the work, including festival appearances at Primavera Sound, Sasquatch!, and Bonnaroo. Check out the band’s full tour schedule here.
Watch Sigur Rós On The Simpsons
May 20, 2013 8:02am | StereoGum
Earlier this month, we learned that Sigur Rós would guest on, and provide music for, an episode of The Simpsons entitled “The Saga Of Carl,” one that involves Homer’s friend Carl returning to his homeland in Iceland. We also learned what they’d look like. Well, last night, the episode aired, and Sigur Rós were indeed in it for a split second. (There’s also a quick cameo from someone who looks like Björk.) But the real draw, from a music standpoint, is that Sigur Rós gave the episode a whole lot of dreamy, slow-floating music, including an ethereal end-credits rendition of the show’s theme song. As Pitchfork points out, you can now watch the episode online here; you’ll find Björk at 11:15 and Sigur Rós at 17:20.

FACT mix 383: Mr. Beatnick
May 20, 2013 7:43am | Fact Magazine
Mr. Beatnick always seemed, to us, destined to go down as one of those great underrated DJs – the sort of guy that half of London knows, and an even larger percentage of the city has danced to, but never quite got his due outside of the capital.
Thankfully, that seems to be changing. Although he’s produced music for well over a decade – and released some well-received singles in that time: his Ahu-featuring ‘I Know All The Bitches’ was a highlight of Alexander Nut’s Rinse CD, and his ‘The Fourth Day’ 7″ was simply a delight – Mr. Beatnick’s stock has really risen in the last year, when a trilogy of 12″ EPs for the Don’t Be Afraid label - Synthetes, Sun Goddess and Savannah - proved an unexpected success with the wider house community.
It’s really overdue: we’ve sung Beatnick’s praises before, and yes, he writes for us in his spare time (check his Essential guides to Theo Parrish, Giorgio Moroder and more) but he really is someone who deserves the hype he’s started to get – a DJ with an encyclopaedic knowledge of his records, who simply loves playing them and talking about them. In a weird way, we guess that makes him a traditionalist, and his FACT mix is long, long overdue.
