Video : Kid Wave : All I Want
Jul 28, 2014 6:19pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
London’s Heavenly Recordings have been on a nice little streak as of late with their roster that includes the likes of Temples, The Wytches, TOY, and more. Their latest addition is a London-based quartet that goes by Kid Wave. Featuring members Harry Deacon, Lea Emmery, Serra Petale, and Mattias Bhatt, their debut single “All I Want” captures the unkempt energy of being young in the ’90s without being derivative. Watch the video for it below.

Tombs @ Saint Vitus - 7/25/14
Local sludge rippers Tombs celebrated the release of their new LP, Savage Gold, at Saint Vitus on Friday night (7/25), and we've got pictures and videos of the show in this post. They were joined by death/math freakout Relapse labelmates Pyrrhon, as well as Batillus-related industrialist StatiqBloom and sludge heavies Passage Between. It was an absolutely loaded bill. Anyone try Tombs' new Savage Gold beer that Vitus had flowing at the bar for the night?
Tombs will be back at Saint Vitus in October as part of their tour with Pallbearer and Vattnet Viskar. Pyrrhon will also be back in August with Gigan and Artificial Brain.
Below, check out more pictures from the Friday show as well as those videos, including the entirety of the Tombs set.

Song : Gap Dream : Strong Love
Jul 28, 2014 5:45pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
Fullerton, California’s Gabe Fulvimar aka Gap Dream created some pretty great music on last year’s Shine Your Light. To stay in rhythm, he will be releasing a new split tour single 7″ with Part Time via Burger Records. His contribution is the smoky song “Strong Love” perfect to backdrop a night of skinny dipping in the lake as you lament the fading summer with your friends. Listen wand watch the video below.

Song : Sophie : Lemonade
Jul 28, 2014 5:13pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
UK producer Sophie came out of nowhere setting the internet ablaze last year with “Bipp” and “Elle”, so it only makes sense that he does the same this summer. Today, he dropped crazy sample-heavy new song “Lemonade”. It has a child-like quality in its appeal (and in its samples), but there is so much more to this sugary, experimental track with every listen. The sounds heard are absolutely insane with dropping bass and revving synths creating sort of a musical maze. It will be out on August 4th via Numbers as a single paired with yet-to-be-heard “Hard”. Listen below.
Eric Copeland, DJ Dog Dick and more currently on "Bushwick Small World Tour" with four Brooklyn shows this week

DJ Dog Dick at Mercury Lounge in 2013 (more by Jonathon
Black Dice's Eric Copeland, as well as DJ Dog Dick, King Conqubine, Robot Death Cult and Fluct are currently on what they're calling the "Bushwick Small World Tour", which is a "conscious tour" of six small venues all within the Brooklyn neighborhood. The idea is being pitched as "a funny way to point out the insane amount of hard work and spaces coming out of a 20 block radius." The tour started Saturday (7/26) at Body Actualized Center and then moved to Secret Project Robot on Sunday (7/27). But you've still got four more chances to witness this, including tonight (7/28) at Trans-Pecos. with Marley G, DJ Jacksy and a mix tape party with Max Alper and Diamond Terrifier too.
The different shows will feature slightly different lineups, with special guests each night. The rest of the tour looks like this:

Meat Puppets at Wicker Park Fest 2013 (more by Lindsey
Here's a cool pairing. Alternative rock godfathers Meat Puppets will be teaming up with the newer and consistently impressive songwriter Cass McCombs for a co-headlining tour this fall. The tour hasn't been announced in full yet, but many of the dates have been revealed including a two-night stand in NYC at Rough Trade on Halloween and All Hallows Day (or Samhain, if you prefer). Meat Puppets headline on night 1 and they'll switch for night 2. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (8/1) at noon.
Meat Puppets' classic Meat Puppets II turned 30 earlier this year. Stream it, with a Cass McCombs video and a list of all currently known dates, below...

Sharon Van Etten at Pitchfork Fest 2014 (more by James
Following the release of her most recent album, Are We There, Sharon Van Etten has been all over the place lately. Back in early July, Sharon brought her band for a 20 minute live performance on KEXP, which you can now watch in its entirety online. Then last week, right before playing Pitchfork Fest, she stopped by on Letterman for a fantastic performance of "Every Time the Sun Comes Up." She also has a new video out for "Our Love." You can check out all those videos below.
She's also been featured performing on some other artists' songs. In addition to appearing on a recent Leverage Models song and video last year, she's featured on two tracks on the upcoming She Keeps Bees album, Eight Houses, which is out via Future Gods on September 16. (Sharon and She Keeps Bees are old pals.) There's a video for one of the songs featuring Sharon, titled "Is What It Is," which you can also watch below.
Sharon also has added some fall dates to her ongoing tour, including a run of dates with Tiny Ruins. Nothing with the two in NYC, unfortunately, but Tiny Ruins do have two smaller club shows here: August 9 at Mercury Lounge (tickets) with Cassie Ramone and August 10 at Baby's All Right (tickets) with Tashaki Miyaki, Weyes Blood and Belle Mare.

Vybz Kartels Beautiful Girl gets an unofficial video starring Jamaican LGBTQ youth
Jul 28, 2014 3:54pm | Chart Attack
After a career spent denouncing homosexuality, Vybz Kartel made a small movement towards acceptance, but it wasn't enough to fully atone before he was sentenced to life in prison for murder. So we can say with almost absolute certainty that the Jamaican dancehall star would not approve of this unofficial video for his song "Beautiful Girl," co-directed by Andy Capper and Adri Murguia.
It was filmed on location during a shoot for a Vice documentary in Kingston, Jamaica, where the city's LGBTQ youth have been marginalized from society by discrimination and violence to live in the city's storm drains and sewers. With a fog machine, a generator and some studio lights, the gyrating youth take the genre's powerful sexuality and turn into an occasionally direct confrontation the society that produced it. Brave doesn't even begin to describe. Give it a much-needed upvote on YouTube.

L.A. rocker Chad Ubovich has done time on guitar and bass in Mikal Cronin’s band and on bass with the Ty Segall-affiliated garage rock project FUZZ. He’s now fronting his own band, the marvelously named Meatbodies, and they’re putting out a self-titled LP on In The Red this fall. Lead single “Tremmors” matches straight-up Zeppelin crunch with colorful psych-rock flourishes that remind me of ’90s Flaming Lips and Tripping Daisy. Fans of humongous power chords, shit-kicking drums, and wildly wailed melodies must listen below.
Meatbodies announce debut album, touring this fall, playing NYC during CMJ (dates, new song stream)
Jul 28, 2014 3:45pm | Brooklyn Vegan
LA band Meatbodies, who released a 7" on Ty Segall's God imprint and toured through NYC earlier this summer, have just announced their self-titled debut album, which will be out via In the Red on October 14. You can stream the very crunchy "Tremmors" from it in this post.
Meatbodies will be on tour this fall, doing stints with Purling Hiss and Hunters. In between those runs, they'll be in NYC for CMJ on October 23 & 24. No firm details yet, expect those to be revealed closer to the fest.
All dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...

Connections Beat The Sky Video
Jul 28, 2014 3:27pm | StereoGum
Last month, we premiered “Beat The Sky,” a new track from the prolific Columbus band Connections, who were also one of our best new bands of 2013. Now they’ve shared the new song’s video, which is your typical band-playing-a-show montage that’s elevated by the group’s energetic and earnest punk, and some cool-looking cloud-related effects. Watch below.
Walt From Lost Is In That Pop Group Youve Been Hearing On The Radio All Month
Jul 28, 2014 3:26pm | StereoGum
Waaaaaaaaaaaaalt! Turns out Malcolm David Kelly, who played Walt on Lost, is the MK half of the pop duo MKTO alongside Tony Ortiz. Their song “Classic” has been getting major top 40 airplay this summer. It’s the song that compares the object of the singers’ affections to classic pop music and old-school movie pinups — you know, the one that goes, “I wanna thrill you like Michael/ I wanna kiss you like Prince/ Let’s get it on like Marvin Gaye/ Like Hathaway write a song for you like this” and “Hepburn, Beyonce, Marilyn, Massey!” Kelly delivers the song’s rap verse while Ortiz handles the singing. If it’s still not ringing a bell, here it is.
She Keeps Bees Is What It Is (Feat. Sharon Van Etten) Video
Jul 28, 2014 3:25pm | StereoGum
A month ago, She Keeps Bees shared the affectingly minimal “Is What It Is,” from their upcoming album Eight Houses, featuring Sharon Van Etten on backup vocals. The song seems made for lonely late-night drives, and the font of the title card for its new video, appearing above a car speeding down a darkened highway, immediately brings to mind the moody aesthetic of the film Drive. That’s where the similarities end, however — rather than neon violence, the Keith Musil-directed clip is full of subdued emotion and odd beauty, at once seeming both real and surreal as a young ballerina slips out the window and performs a dance routine atop her mother’s moving car. Watch it below.
