Yoni and Geti - Testarossa
May 5, 2016 10:32am | Drowned In Sound
Were told that you shouldnt judge a book by its cover. The same is true for albums. I dread to think how many times Ive been digging in a shop and come across an interesting cover and immediately thought 'I have to have this'. If you were in your local record shop and came across Yoni & Getis Testarossa album, youd definitely pick it up! Against a green background a white toy Ferrari Testarossa hangs in space while what looks like candy floss spews from its open door.
The music is as lurid and surreal as the cover, but this is what
weve come to expect from Yoni Wolf and Serengeti, bearing in mind
they were in cLOUDDEAD and Cavanaugh respectively. Umar Rashid
opens the proceedings with eerie beats, mournful piano and sultry
synths. Lyrically its easy to tell that Yoni and Geti arent in the
best frame of mind. Allegheny carries on this feeling. Everything
is downtempo, almost ambient at times. Yoni and Getis verses are
delivered at breakneck speed one moment and then beautiful
crooning. The lyrics have a stream of consciousness vibe to them,
exemplified by lines like Charge my phone, let me call my home,
let me eat this scone.
Madeline is the hookiest thing here: the music pulls us in with catchy melodies, and the lyrics are half sung/half spoken and have a lullaby quality to them, but instead of lulli...
Kristin Kontrol shares "(Don't) Wannabe" from debut LP
May 5, 2016 10:27am | Brooklyn Vegan
Kristin Kontrol, aka Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls, has shared another song off her debut album X-Communicate. Like the other songs we've heard off the album, there's a distinct '80s pop vibe here and "(Don't) Wannabe" really sounds like it could've been a big hit in the Reagan Era, one of those mid-tempo anthems with a giant chorus that Pat Benatar pulled off with panache...

May 5, 2016 10:20am | Brooklyn Vegan
Terminal Redux is Vektor's first album since then, and in the five years since, their notoriety has expanded like the gravitational range of a growing star. Their growth has merit behind it: Terminal Redux slays.
Modern Baseball share video for new single Wedding Singer watch
May 5, 2016 10:10am | Cosequence Of Sound
Philadelphia indie rock band Modern Baseball have just dropped a brand new single and video from their forthcoming album Holy Ghost. “Wedding Singer” follows previous singles “Everyday” and “Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind”.
The track itself is a stomping rush of emo-inspired indie rock, the perfect soundtrack for director (and longtime band collaborator) Kyle Thrash’s visuals. The accompanying video sees the band venture inside the brain of a particularly anxious character named Charlie. After a funeral that degrades into a brawl, Charlie encounters the mysterious pink-haired Margaret. The energy of “Wedding Singer” flows with the story that unfolds as Margaret forces Charlie to open up, let go of his inhibition, and drop any sense of neuroticism. If only she were real.
Watch the video above. Holy Ghost is out May 13th via Run For Cover Records.

Paul McCartney covers Princes Lets Go Crazy at Minneapolis show watch
May 5, 2016 9:55am | Cosequence Of Sound
Paul McCartney was in Minneapolis last night as part of his One on One tour, and he used the oppurtunity to pay tribute to one of the city’s fallen icons. “Prince, Minneapolis; Minneapolis, Prince. It goes together,” Sir Paul said as he dedicated his set to the “late, great” artist. During the encore, between “Hi, Hi, Hi” and “Birthday” if Setlist.fm is to be believed, McCartney delivered a partial cover of “Let’s Go Crazy” as the Purple One’s iconic symbol appeared behind him.
Check out the performance below via Macca’s own Facebook page.
Artists like Beck, Mac DeMarco, My Morning Jacket, DAngelo and Maya Rudolph, David Gilmour, and may more have been turning in tributes to Prince since his passing. Keep up on all the latest Prince news here.
Franz Nicolay Rejoins The Hold Steady For Anniversary Shows
May 5, 2016 9:55am | StereoGum
Back when the Hold Steady were the best rock band in the world, one of their most crucial members was keyboardist Franz Nicolay, who added pounding Roy Bittan-esque pianos to their records and unbounded enthusiasm to their live shows. Nicolay left the band in 2010, and the split was pretty contentious. The Hold Steady … More »
