Screw your friends at SXSW: Stream new albums from Kevin Drew, The War On Drugs, more
Mar 11, 2014 11:35am | Chart Attack
If youre anything like me, your Twitter feed is about to be clogged by friends micro-broadcasting the free tacos theyre eating in their super-cool rompers at the big Brooklyn Mix Tapes BBQ and where the hell are you GET HERE NOW! But even if youre not roadtripping to SXSW to get your picture taken with Grumpy Cat or attend a live podcast taping or launch an app or whatever it is people do down there in the weird part of Texas, the festival thats stolen all the bands from your local scene for a week has left behind a solid bounty of actual music you can stream for free without leaving town.
Today is the first official day of SXSWs music component, sure, but its also Tuesday, which is the default release date for most albums. Most of the albums below are out next week, but bands undoubtedly wanted to get them streaming before their 12 Austin showcases, ready to be sold as soon as they get back. Put them all on in different rooms, run between each, tweet how much each is #killingit, drink some tequila shots, and occasionally stop to piss in a traumatic bathroom.
Perfect Pussy, Say Yes To Love
The first (but heavily-hyped) full-length from the Syracuse noise-punks who helped make 2013 the year of the cassette tape.
The War On Drugs, Lost In The Dream
Another dreamy epic from Philadelphias other rising Americana auteur, Adam Granduciel. Listen at CBC Music.
Kevin Drew, Darlings
Julian Casablancas Played New Songs, Strokes Songs, And His Daft Punk Song In New Orleans Last Night
Mar 11, 2014 11:32am | StereoGum
Last week we saw a very enticing teaser video for a new album from what’s being dubbed as Julian Casablancas + The Voidz. No further recordings have surfaced so far, but Casablancas, touring his way to SXSW, played new songs last night at One Eyed Jack’s in New Orleans including “2231,” “Dr. Acula,” “Biz Dog,” and “The Phantom Of Liberty (Arabic Jam).” He also did Strokes songs “Reptilia” and “Ize Of The World,” material from his 2009 solo debut Phrazes For The Young, and his Daft Punk collaboration “Instant Crush.” So, the Julian Casablancas Revue, then?
Stream SBTRKT Transitions EP
Mar 11, 2014 11:21am | StereoGum
The masked British producer SBTRKT hasn’t yet announced a follow-up album to his excellent 2011 self-titled debut. But last month, he shared a new track called “Hold The Line” and announced plans to release a series of instrumental 12″ EPs called Transitions, which he’d crank out before giving us that new album that he’s been working on. But now he’s suddenly released all those instrumental tracks into the world in one go, with no warning. The six-track Transitions EP is out now on Young Turks, and SBTRKT describes it like this: “This is music written over the last year, whilst recording for my second album. Much of the music I released before my debut album was instrumental and I want to continue to share this side of the music I make.” And now you can stream the whole EP here.

Stream Evian Christs Waterfall EP for Tri Angle
Mar 11, 2014 11:20am | Fact Magazine
Ahead of its release next week on Tri Angle Records, Evian Christ’s Waterfall EP is now available to stream via his website.
After turning heads with his breakthrough EP Kings And Them back in 2012, last year the producer born Joshua Leery was involved in the creation of Kanye West’s epic Yeezus, an experience that seems to have redirected his hip-hop influence towards an even more scuzzy and aggressive sound on Waterfall post-Yeezus, you might say.
Recorded in his hometown of Ellesmere Port and in New York, the EP was mixed by Noah Rubin and mastered by Heba Kedry. Propeller, contains a sample of Nine by his friend and affiliate producer, Lukid.
Waterfall is out on March 17 digitally and will be available on limited edition vinyl, featuring artwork by David Rudnick, on April 1. Stream it here.
To celebrate the release, the producer will be throwing a Trance Party at London’s Oval Space on March 21, featuring Travis Scott (live), Millie & Andrea (live), Lil Silva, Sophie (live), Powell and Mssingno. Tickets are on sale now.
He’s also heading out on tour across the UK and Europe with Mssingno see the list of dates below.
FACT’s John Calvert caught up with Evian Christ last month to hear about Yeezus and why he “lives for rap”.
