Bleached Poison Ivy Video
Jul 23, 2014 9:48am | StereoGum

Yesterday, the tough L.A. garage-poppers Bleached released their three-song For The Feel EP; we posted the title track a little while back. The band has a new video for their sneery, catchy EP track “Poison Ivy.” It captures their performance on the pilot of the Check Yo Ponytail TV show’s pilot episode, as well as what happens when the old-timey TV showing that performance doesn’t work quite right. Jesus Rivera directed the clip, and you can watch it below.

Watch Jack White enjoying a Cubs game (like everyone watching live on TV did), Eddie Vedder too
Jul 23, 2014 9:42am | Brooklyn Vegan

(pic via @mobute)

If you watched yesterday's Cubs-Padres game on TV, you may have seen Jack White in the stands. That Cubs jersey almost fits in with Lazaretto's sapphire color scheme, with a bit of the old White Stripes palette in there too. While he probably had a good time, the screencap above could inspire Sad Keanu-like memes. (UPDATE: It has already.)The ever-fact-filled announcer notes "his new record is really really good" and also recommends It Might Get Loud, the documentary with White, The Edge and Jimmy Page. Eddie Vedder was there too and this is part of a "3 ballparks in 3 days" run for White.

Watch a clip (via CoS) of the Cubs game, and check out a pic with Vedder, below.

Alvvays Alvvays
Jul 23, 2014 9:40am | CMJ

The breezy guitars, midcentury beehive-indebted melodies and general aw shucks-ness of the flood of surf-gaze bands from the last few years are like summer—youd have to be Dick Cheney in a particularly sour mood not to enjoy it. But even the most golden-haired surfer needs to eventually get out of the sand and go eat something, run in late to work, and ultimately cede that the days are getting shorter. Unless you’re all “tra-la-la,” which is fine, but not Alvvays.

Alvvays’ version of squinting ahead in the calendar includes a slight icy air (maybe because theyre from Toronto?) to their beachy vibes on this nine-song debut . Their fuzzy stuff has a solid pulsing groove throughout, and they shove in unexpected analog synth whizz-wirrs, especially effective in the opener, Adult Diversion. Singer Molly Rankin can, most notably in the single Marry Me, Archie, reach and raise up her ubiquitous chanteuse-in-training tra-la-las out of the fuzz-pop morass and approach a coy-croon that expresses real emotional neediness and vocal ambition. Most indie singers seem to pick only one of those options.


Of course she can creak into grade school talent show earnestness on the higher notes (Party Police, The Agency Group) thats charming for a while, but is also a sound that’s starting to get stale in the indie rock world. The infantilization of indie rock could be a community col...


Saintseneca Withdraw From Fest Headlined By R. Kelly, Plan Alternative Concert To Benefit Sexual Assault Victims
Jul 23, 2014 9:36am | StereoGum

Here in Columbus, people are always trying (and failing) to put together a major music festival. The latest attempt is the self-explanatory Fashion Meets Music Festival, which is set to go down Labor Day weekend at various Downtown venues, SXSW-style. The fest lineup trickled out little by little, and at first, it mostly caused a lot of shrugs. The thing basically read like Local Natives plus a bunch of actual local natives — and, OK, a few other mid-level acts like Michelle Williams, Future Islands, Rusko, Cold War Kids, and New Found Glory. But when FMMF announced R. Kelly as its headliner, the fest instantly went from being an object of amusement and vague gotta-start-somewhere optimism to a hot-button controversy. Kelly’s history of sexual predation, long trumpeted by Chicago Sun-Times reporter Jim DeRogatis, seems to finally be turning public opinion against Kelly after Jessica Hopper’s interview with DeRogatis last December in the Village Voice went viral. Thus, a lot of bands that had signed up to be a part of this new event suddenly feel deeply conflicted about it, especially the Columbus bands who were hoping to help something special in their hometown.

Jim-E Stack talks debut album Tell Me I Belong, Lit City Raves and shaking off the club mindset

Tell Me I Belong, Lit City Raves and shaking off the club mindset" width="685" height="457" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-223197" />

The Brooklyn-based producer opens up about his debut album and more.

Jim-E Stack (aka James Harmon Stack) has spent the last few years releasing material for the likes of Body High and Good Years and turning out club-ready remixes of A$AP Rocky, Sky Ferreira and more. On July 28, hell release his debut album via Innovative Leisure, Tell Me I Belong.

The album is the culmination of several years of work, bringing together house, techno, club music and R&B for an emotionally-charged meditation on its titular ennui. We spoke with the producer via phone about the musical inspirations behind the album, how hes evolved from producing for the club, and his favorite thing about living in New York.

Tell Me I Belong looks back on the music of your past. What music were you into growing up?

I wasnt some head listening to Aphex Twin back in high school maybe some but my friends were into rock, punk, and garage stuff, so I listened to that: Husker Du, Thee Oh Sees, Pavement. But also a fair amount of standard hip-hop stuff like Donuts and DJ Premier; I had also played jazz drums, and while I wasn’t necessarily a jazz record head, I definitely listened to Coltrane and stuff like that.

Dope Body releasing a new LP, touring (3 NYC shows total)
Jul 23, 2014 9:26am | Brooklyn Vegan

Baltimore's Dope Body have announced they'll follow 2012's Natural History with a new album, Lifer, on October 21 via Drag City. Its first single, "Hired Gun," is a punk rager filled with noise guitar heroics that you should definitely play loud. Turn up and do so below.

We already knew Dope Body are coming to NYC for a free show on August 29 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with Single Mothers, Ed Schrader's Music Beat and Vulture Shit (that is a killer lineup), and they've since scheduled a full tour for this October. That tour brings them back to NYC on 10/16 at The Studio at Webster Hall and 10/17 at Palisades. No openers announced for those shows yet. Tickets for Webster and Palisades are on sale now.

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

Watch The Only Known Live Footage Of Pre-Slint Band Squirrel Bait
Jul 23, 2014 9:23am | StereoGum

One of the best qualities of Breadcrumb Trail — Lance Bangs’ fantastic documentary on Slint, released earlier this year — is the wealth of rare footage Bangs’ unearthed, and how naturally it flows into the story. No mention is made of the great effort required to obtain that footage; Bangs simply includes it where it needs to be, and lets it speak for itself. When the film’s focus turns to Squirrel Bait — the pre-Slint band featuring Brian McMahan and Britt Walford (as well as a pre-Gastr Del Sol David Grubbs) — there is naturally some old video of that band playing. However, this was actually the only known live footage of Squirrel Bait, and now label Drag City has made it available to watch online. The clip was shot by David Hintz in 1985 in Newport, Kentucky, and restored by Bangs. It features the band playing the song “Sun God” from their self-titled EP, and offhandedly mentioning another show opening for Big Black — which makes sense, as only a few years later, Steve Albini would help Slint record their debut album, Tweez. Watch it below.

Watch: Pharrell and Miley Cyrus video for Come Get It Bae
Jul 23, 2014 9:22am | Cosequence Of Sound

Between their upcoming Sgt. Peppers covers album, a handful of live appearances, and brand-new matching tattoos, Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips have all but been inseparable in 2014. But lest we forget Cyrus had another successful collaboration earlier this year, joining forces with Pharrell Williams for the G I R L standout “Come Get It Bae”.

Today, the pair reconvene for the tracks accompanying video, in which Luis Cerveró takes us inside a swanky dance tryout inside a posh studio. Pharrell oversees the process and even mans the camera, while Cyrus shows up briefly to execute her own patented dance moves. It’s nothing on the level of Pharrell’s video for “Happy”, but at least Pharrell has changed up his head gear.



Firecracker Recordings boss to open vinyl record shop in Edinburgh
Jul 23, 2014 9:20am | Fact Magazine

Another vinyl specialist set to open north of the border.

Lindsay Todd, the man behind oddball house and techno label Firecracker Recordings, is set to open a new record shop in Edinburgh specialising in leftfield and hard-to-find vinyl. Open to the public over the duration of the Edinburgh Festival next month, the shop will then become an appointment-only business.

As RA reports, Todd revealed that he would be stocking independent labels like Honest Jons, The Trilogy Tapes, Blackest Ever Black, Jazzman and RVNG, as well as even more niche ventures like Folklore Tapes, Mood Hut, Sex Tags Mania, Public Possession, Invisible City Editions, Art Yard, Trunk and Music From Memory. Alongside all the new releases, The Living Mountain will also stock a range of rare vinyl from jazz to new age and field recordings.

The shop will also stock a bunch of cassettes, CDs and books as well as hosting regular exhibitions and in-store events, with the first exhibition set feature performances of musique concrète and experimental recordings from the Heart Fine Art archive.

The Living Mountain is only the latest in a string of record shop openings across the UK in the last few months, with Rough Trade setting up in Nottingham, Sister Ray expanding in London and new shops springing up in Peckham and Hoxton. And if you fancy hopp...

Jul 23, 2014 9:18am | Fact Magazine

The Hudson Valley’s Cayman “Tallesen” Johnson joins his audio and visual practices on his first, comprehensive body of work.

Stream Peter Van Hoesen and Yves De Meys new Sendai EP Monad XVIII
Jul 23, 2014 9:17am | Fact Magazine

Sendai is the collaborative moniker of Belgian producers Yves De Mey and Peter Van Hoesen.

Both are techno mainstays – De Mey contributed to the sadly defunct Sandwell District label, and Van Hoesen has been steadily building his reputation – releasing on Tresor and other labels – for some time now, so the very concept of a collaboration is pretty exciting. Since 2012 they’ve been issuing a stream of tight, unpredictable electronic experiments, and this new EP might be the best yet.

Rather than go the predictable route and bundle together four techno pounders, on Monad XVIII (part of the Stroboscopic Artefacts Monad series) De Mey and Van Hoesen have crafted a record more in common with latter day Autechre than with Ben Klock. It’s epic stuff, packed to the gills with expertly processed sounds, booming bass and complex, slithering rhythms – techno explorers take note, this is how it’s done.

Monad XVIII will be released on July 28 via Stroboscopic Artefacts.
