The Gotobeds (members of Kim Phuc) released debut LP (stream it), added to BV presents Sleaford Mods show
Sep 19, 2014 12:12pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Pittsburgh's The Gotobeds is the new band from guitarist Eli Kasan and drummer Tom Payne of the great, mostly dormant Kim Phuc. After a cassette and a couple 7"s, the band released their debut album, Poor People Are Revolting, this month via Gerard Cosloy's 12xu label. ("12xu" is not the only Wire reference associated with the band.) From the title down, this is attitude-heavy, snarling, railing-against-everything punk-informed indie rock. If you dig Protomartyr and Parquet Courts (whose album gets slightly damaged in their video for "New York's Alright [If You Like Sex & Phones]") or Pavement or The Fall (or Wire), this is pretty much essential listening. You can stream the whole album and check out that "New York's Alright" video below.
You may have seen The Gotobeds at SXSW this year (or in Brooklyn in summer 2013) and while they haven't announced a full tour in support of the new record, we did convince them to come up to Brooklyn to open for the Sleaford Mods show we're presenting at The Wick on November 29. Tickets are on sale now and the rest of the night's lineup is still TBA.
The Gotobeds' only other show currently is a hometown Pittsburgh show at Planet Vegeta on October 9. Album and video streams below...

Iceage releases new song How Many listen
Sep 19, 2014 12:10pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Danish punk band Iceage has deemed its upcoming third studio album, Plowing Into The Field Of Love, to be both “bold and fierce,” the result of the foursome “channeling the rage and emotion of their tempestuous early releases into finely honed musicianship. This is an album about seeing, learning, and rejecting things, in a cycle that repeats and builds.” So far, that maturation has been heard on the shambolic punk jam “The Lords Favorite” and the dark and brooding “Forever”.
Today, Iceage share another of the albums 12 tracks in “How Many”. If the whole LP is about taking all that youthful rage and angst and channeling it with laser-like precision, then this is a momentary indulgence of the polar opposite. Here, the band loses total control, with the track slowly melting from aggressive post-punk jam into a cacophony of wild-eyed emotional sentiments, mangled piano, manic percussion, and Elias Bender Rønnenfelts increasingly disturbed vocals.
Watch its accompanying visualizer below.
Plowing Into The Field Of Love is due out October 7th via Matador Records. In support, the band will be on tour in the US starting in mid-October. The month-long jaunt wraps up in early November with an appearance at Austins Fun Fun Fun Fest. Consult their full schedule here.

Pop Montreal Picks: 6 Acts to Catch on Friday, September 19
Sep 19, 2014 12:04pm | Chart Attack
Pop Montréal takes over the other capital of Québec from September 17 to 21. We're assembling six loosely chronological concert picks for every day, to guide your festival crawl. Here are our picks for Friday, September 19.
Ronnie Spector - 8:45PM @ Théâtre Rialto :: Salle Shure
Festivals are great for the old bucket list, and seeing the original leader of The Ronnettes sing "Be My Baby" deserves to be on (and then crossed off) yours. You can hear its influence across most pop and indie music today (especially that iconic opening drum beat) to the point that most of the other acts on the Pop Montreal schedule probably have some of its DNA. So if you're short on time, catch Ronnie and skip the rest.
Mozart's Sister - 10PM @ Cabaret du Mile-End :: Salle Communaut
One of many Montreal artists shackled with the "Next Grimes" label, Caila Thompson-Hannant carved out her own addictive DIY pop space with her debut LP Being earlier this year. Watch her/they loop it all firsthand in front of her hometown crowd.
Un Blonde - 10:30PM @ Brasserie Beaubien
Jean-Sebastien Audet is a major figure in the Calgary music scene, but in a way he's a scene unto himself. At 18, he's put out a sprawling collection of records under a sprawling collection of project names. His latest, Un Blonde, bursts with ...
Puscifer share new video for Toma watch
Sep 19, 2014 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Tool haven’t released an album in eight years, due in large part to a messy lawsuit that’s not only taken up most of the band’s time but also put a strain on their financial resources. That hasn’t stopped frontman Maynard James Keenan from keeping busy, however. His alt rock side project Puscifer recently launched a brand new website, and today, they’ve shared the music video for “Toma”, a highlight off their 2011 album, Conditions of My Parole.
A clip nearly three years in the making, it was directed by Tim Cadiente and features lots of colorful masks and fascinating lucha libre wrestlers. Also, be on the lookout for cameos from Jacob Vargas and Clifton Collins, Jr., both known for their “Tijuana Cops” scenes in 2007’s National Lamoon’s TV: The Movie.

Director Mark Pellington Details His Falling Out With Trent Reznor
Sep 19, 2014 11:50am | StereoGum
Mark Pellington is a music video director most famous for doing Pearl Jam’s iconic “Jeremy” clip. He also directed the movies Arlington Road and The Mothman Prophecies, and more recently, he worked with Chelsea Wolfe on her short film Lone. In 1999, Nine Inch Nails hired him to make the video for “We’re In This Together,” the first single from their double album The Fragile. But when they were done shooting the video, Pellington and Reznor disagreed over which edit of the video to release. Both ended up putting out their own versions, and they haven’t spoken since. Pellington described the whole affair in a recent column for Alternative Nation; read some highlights below.
Watch Kurt Vile Jam With The War On Drugs In Philly
Sep 19, 2014 11:48am | StereoGum
I saw the War On Drugs in concert Wednesday night in Columbus, and it was rad in its own right. (Who’d have thunk a pit full of kids would be moshing and crowdsurfing to “Red Eyes“? Who’d have thunk this band even counts anyone under 30 in its fan base?) But do you know what would have been even radder? Seeing the band rock an intimate venue in their hometown alongside former member Kurt Vile. Vile, who famously was a member of the War On Drugs before either he or they ascended prominence, joined Adam Granduciel and company for several songs last Friday in a “special secret show” at relatively tiny Philadelphia bar Johnny Brenda’s. Philly radio station WXPN has photos from the show, and they shared some excellent videos of “Under The Pressure,” “Arms Like Boulders,” and “Hear You Calling” by videographer Joe Burns, each one with Vile hunched over in the corner of the stage. There’s also footage of “Red Eyes,” which didn’t feature Vile, just because it rocks. Honestly, Vile’s involvement is pretty negligible here, and you can barely even tell it’s him down noodling away down there, but seeing the War On Drugs at the peak of their powers is reason enough to watch all four clips below.

Ben & Jerrys may rename Led Zeppelin ice cream Hazed & Confused amid customer complaints
Sep 19, 2014 11:45am | Cosequence Of Sound
Earlier this year, Ben & Jerry’s launched “Hazed & Confused”, a new ice cream flavor inspired by Led Zeppelins classic “Dazed and Confused”.
Although most customers have enjoyed its fudge chips and hazelnut core, some have found its name problematic and even downright insensitive for allegedly making “light of student hazing.” As a result, the company is considering renaming the flavor altogether, The Huffington Post reports.
Since the launching of the product in February, Ben & Jerry’s has received a total of four complaints. The Kowiak family, whose son died during a college hazing ritual in 2008, was especially “shocked and [...] dismayed” upon hearing about “Hazed & Confused”.
While the creamery has decided to discuss a possible name-change next month, they’re also quick to note that the flavor was “never intended to have any association with hazing.” “The ice cream contains hazelnuts, so it was always meant as a pop culture reference to ‘Dazed and Confused'”, spokesman Sean Greenwood told The Huffington Post.
He added, “Ben & Jerry’s believes that hazing and bullying have no place in our society. No individual, group, or entity should benefit by marginalizing others.”
A change in name is on the table, but it’s not hard to imagine the company having to alter th...

Gwar Spare Dave Grohls Life Thanks To His Oderus Urungus Tribute
Sep 19, 2014 11:31am | StereoGum
A few months ago, Richmond, Virginia locals launched a crowdfunding campaign to bring the Foo Fighters to their town. It worked, and last night, the band played the local club the National. During the show, Dave Grohl dedicated a song to local thrash legends Gwar and to Dave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus, the Gwar frontman who died earlier this year. Grohl also told a story: One about being a kid and going, absolutely unprepared, to a Gwar show in Richmond. (It sure sounds like it was the band’s Halloween 1986 show in Schafer Court at VCU, a locally infamous show.) He also told a story about how Brockie, in an interview, once claimed that Grohl had had teeth removed “so he can fit more Grammy dicks in his fucking mouth.” In response, Gwar member JizMak The Destroyer posted a video, claiming that he’d gone to the show intending to kill Grohl but that, because he said something nice about Oderus, he’d spare Grohl’s life “this time.” Watch the videos of Grohl’s Brockie dedication and JizMak’s response below.
