The New Basement Tapes (Feat. Elvis Costello, Jim James, Marcus Mumford) Married To My Hack
Sep 2, 2014 11:44am | StereoGum

In 1967, Bob Dylan and the Band got together to work on a whole pile of songs, many of which eventually came out as The Basement Tapes. But many of those songs were left unfinished, and now producer T Bone Burnett has gotten together with an all-star cast to finish some of those songs, setting Dylan’s old lyrics to music. The project features people like Elvis Costello, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, and Mumford & Sons’ Marcus Mumford. We’ve already posted the lyric video for “Nothing To It,” and now they’ve shared another one, for a messy two-minute ramble called “Married To My Hack.” Come on. You know you want to hear Costello’s Bob Dylan impression. It’s below.

Dive Index releasing new album featuring collaborations with La Strada's Isaiah Gage, and Simone White (streams)
Sep 2, 2014 11:29am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Will Thomas has been making music under the Dive Index moniker since the mid-'00s. His records are collaborative and he's worked with Mark Gardener (Ride), Ian Masters (Pale Saints), Roger Eno, Joseph Arthur and more. Dive Index's new album, Lost In The Pressure, will be out September 30 via Neutral Music. This one is a collaboration with Isaiah Gage (La Strada) and singer-songwriter Simone White (who has released albums on Damon Albarn's Honest Jon's label). Gage sings lead on new single, "A Person to Hide With," that recalls the low key grandeur of The Blue Nile. That song makes its premiere in this post.

Stream it, along with a couple other tracks from the new album, below...

Stream Tricky Adrian Thaws
Sep 2, 2014 11:19am | StereoGum

Tricky’s new album is self-titled, but not in the way you’d expect. Adrian Thaws is Tricky’s birth name, but it’s also a convenient coincidence that his last name is “Thaws,” as many of the songs on the new album are as fiery as that cover art. The album features a guest spot from Mykki Blanco (“Lonnie Listen“) and many vocal performances from Francesca Belmonte (including the single “Nicotine Love“), among others, but the album finds Tricky in fine vocal form as well, especially on the deathly crawl of “My Palestine Girl.” Listen to the entire album below.


Faith No More At Work On Reunion Album
Sep 2, 2014 11:17am | StereoGum

The great, adventurous Bay Area metal band Faith No More broke up in 1998, and though they got back together for live-show purposes in 2009, there was no real indication that they had any new music in the works. But they do, and we’ll hear some of it soon. The band is at work on a new album, their first since 1997′s Album Of The Year. They’re expecting to release the album next year, and they’ll drop a 7″ of a new song with the promising title “Motherfucker” on Record Store Day’s Black Friday event 11/28. It’s one of the two songs they debuted live this summer. As a B-side, it’ll have a remix from Foetus mastermind J.G. Thirwell. That single will also be out digitally 12/9. Talking to Rolling Stone about the new album, bassist Bill Gould says that they’re “pretty far into it” and describes it like this:

Watch: Courtney Barnett covers The Breeders Cannonball
Sep 2, 2014 11:10am | Cosequence Of Sound

Aussie singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett already has several alt-rock covers in her back pocket, including The Lemonheads “Being Around” and the entirety of INXS 1987 album Kick. During a recent session for A.V. Clubs Undercover series, Barnett showed off her chops once more with a rendition of The Breeders classic 1993 single, “Cannonball”.

Structurally speaking, Barnett and co.s version is fairly identical to the original, from the sluggish pacing and the emphasis on that cutting bass line to the lackadaisical passion in Barnetts voice. However, theres also a certain sort of bounce to the trios rendition, making the whole affair feel like a bunch of young kids happily playing one of their favorite songs in their parents garage.

Watch the replay below.

According to Barnett, “Cannonball” also served as the inspiration for her forthcoming debut full-length, due out later this year.

Girl Band De Bom Bom Video
Sep 2, 2014 11:03am | StereoGum

Dublin noise-punks Girl Band released a stark black-and-white video for their great single “Lawman,” and their new clip for “De Bom Bom” matches that aesthetic. Not much happens in the video, so it works as a kaleidoscopic portrait of the band in action. The song remains an excellent pastiche of early Liars, Pavement, and the Jesus Lizard — i.e. whimsical abrasive skree that’s absolutely worth your time. Watch below.


Queen Jesus Drop D (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 2, 2014 11:01am | StereoGum

Queen Jesus is an evocative name for a band — monarchial power and the deification of Jesus have always been at odds, a power struggle between two institutions that both want to be recognized as the most holy. That tension spills over into Queen Jesus’ music, which is a side project from some of the members of Philadelphia’s Three Man Cannon. “Drop D” is the first track from their upcoming new album Darkness Yea, Yea and it’s a searing song that feels like its been dulled by ice cold water, talking about medicated highs and long subway rides. The song is accompanied by striking slow-motion black-and-white visuals directed by Craig Sheihing that capture how solace can be found in the chaos of a city. Listen below.

Ryan Hemsworth Is Putting Out A Secret Songs Compilation, Heres The First Track
Sep 2, 2014 11:00am | CMJ

The ever-busy Ryan Hemsworth started his biweekly download series Secret Songs in May, and since then he’s released nine tracks under the Secret Songs umbrella. The tenth track, which dropped this morning, is a little different. Wishes is the first song we’re hearing from the first ever Secret Songs compilation, shh#ffb6c1.

The track itself is the work of three Aussie musicians, producers Swick and Lewis Cancut, and singer Tkay Maidza. On the Secret Songs SoundCloud, Hemsworth said, “The compilation will feature entirely original, new music from some of brightest producers from all over. All the songs follow the color theme in one way or another.” I’m not sure what the color theme is, but if it differs from track to track, pink definitely fits with the bubbling starlight clatter of Wishes. You can’t download the track yet, but you can listen to it below and wait for shh#ffb6c1 to drop later this month.

New Order sign to Mute Records for new album
Sep 2, 2014 10:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

New Order have been teasing a new full-length since they reunited three years ago. It looks as though the legendary outfit’s inching closer to a release, as they’ve just announced their signing to Mute Records.

“New Order are delighted to be signing to Mute,” the band said in a press release. “We couldn’t imagine a better place to be than working with Daniel Miller and his team. Mute has a superb roster of artists and a history that complements our own. In many ways joining the label feels like we are coming home, returning to our independent roots.”

Mute home to artists like Erasure, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Depeche Mode, Swans, Liars, and more is similarly excited to welcome New Order to its roster. Label head Daniel Miller commented: This is an exciting new chapter for both Mute and New Order and I feel privileged to be working with artists with such a long, creative and successful history. When the possibility of us working together first came up, I was invited to hear some of the new material and immediately had no doubts whatsoever that Mute would be the right home for New Order. We’ve already had a number of creative conversations, and I am looking towards an exciting future.”

Purling Hiss Forcefield Of Solitude
Sep 2, 2014 10:47am | StereoGum

The great Philly psychedelic garage rockers Purling Hiss have a new album called Weirdon coming this month, and today they’ve shared an absolute gem from that record. It’s called “Forcefield Of Solitude,” and it somehow combines a droning art-rock trance with a rollicking classic rock car stereo jam. It’s equally suited for pumping fists or zoning out, so choose your headspace of choice and listen below.


James Williamson releasing an LP of re-recorded Stooges rarities w/ guest singers (stream 1 w/ Mario from the Orwells)
Sep 2, 2014 10:47am | Brooklyn Vegan

The Stooges guitarist James Williamson is releasing a solo album, Re-Licked, features "lesser-known Stooges tracks properly recorded and mixed for the first time" with an impressive list of guest lead singers, including Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees), Alison Mosshart (The Kills), Mario Cuomo (The Orwells), Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream), Ariel Pink and others. James is backed by live Stooges members Steve Mackay, Toby Dammit, and Mike Watt (also of The Minutemen, fIREHOSE, etc) and that dog.'s Petra Haden provides backup vocals. The album's due out on October 29 via Leopard Lady Records. Artwork and tracklist below.

"I'm Sick of You," which has The Orwells' Mario Cuomo on guest vocals, makes its premiere in this post. James says it "was one of the very earliest songs [he] wrote with Iggy back in around late 1970," and that they "played it live at the King's Cross Cinema Show while [they] were in London just before [they] recorded Raw Power." Mario's a good choice, considering Iggy seems like a big influence on him, and he gets his Danzig or his Jim Morrison on a bit for this one too. Check it out below.

The Orwells also have a previously discussed fall tour which hits NYC on October 15 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for that sho...
