Kvelertak playing Saint Vitus during Mastodon/Gojira tour
Apr 23, 2014 3:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Wyatt Marshall
Kvelertak at the Studio at Webster Hall, May
2013 (more by Keith Marlowe)
Kvelertak, the rambunctious beer and party metal worshippers out of Norway, are going on a previously discussed tour opening for Mastodon and Gojira that hits NYC for a big show at Terminal 5 on May 15 (sold out), but if you'd like to see Kvelertak somewhere way more intimate than that, you're in luck. The day before, they'll headline their own NYC show at Saint Vitus (5/14). Prepare for a rowdy time that will surely include lots of stage diving and sweat and mucho beer spillage that you probably won't get at the T5 show.
Tickets for the Vitus show go on sale Thursday (4/24) at noon. Support TBA. Updated Kvelertak dates are listed, with a live video, below...

Listen: Joey Bada$$ Mr. Wonderful
Apr 23, 2014 3:00pm | CMJ

So apparently, Brooklyn boom-bap enthusiast Joey Bada$$ is a huge fan of MMA fighting. His new song, Mr. Wonderful, is a track completely devoted to UFC light heavyweight fighter Phil Davis. The buffed-up ode will be used as Daviss entrance music before his fight against Anthony Johnson this Saturday. The beat comes courtesy of Kirk Knight, and it’s muted and strange, like an old car starting up or alien morse code. Though the track is only two minutes long, there’s a takeaway here: Phil Davis is a tough mofo and he will absolutely “enter the ring guns blazin,” thanks to JB. Listen to Mr. Wonderful below.

American Men/Laeto drummer Robbie Cooper has passed away
Apr 23, 2014 2:53pm | Fact Magazine
Robbie Cooper, ex-drummer for LuckyMe’s American Men and more recently Scottish post-rockers Laeto, died today.
Cooper, 35, had been struggling with an extremely rare and aggressive form of cancer for some time, yet had managed to keep surprisingly upbeat about the situation, even finding the time to keep a darkly comic blog about his struggle.
LuckyMe boss Dominic Sum Flannigan added some touching remarks via Twitter, calling Cooper “effortlessly smart, kind, gentle and talented,” and said that they would be arranging something from the label towards his foundation this week. A fund was set up last year to help Cooper’s wife Miriam pay for the mounting costs, and can still be viewed and added to.

Constantines detail Shine a Light reissue, reunion tour dates
Apr 23, 2014 2:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Back in February, Ontario indie rockers Constantines announced plans to end their four-year hibernation, reuniting in order to reissue 2003′s sophomore LP Shine a Light and support it with an accompanying tour. Today, the band’s announced details for both ventures.
Due out June 10th via Sub Pop, the vinyl-only reissue marks the first time the 12-track album’s been in print since early 2006. It features an altered album cover and a bonus 7-inch containing three previously released tracks: a cover of Talking Heads’ “Thank You for Sending Me an Angel”; “Hotline Operator (2003)”, from the Nighttime CD-single; and a cover of Royal City’s “Raw Youth” recorded during a CBC Radio 3 in-studio session. An extremely-limited “Loser Edition”, pressed on orange vinyl, will be available at select independent record stores. Check out the modified album art below (here’s the original for reference):

Watch Little Dragon Play The Queen Latifah Show
Apr 23, 2014 2:42pm | StereoGum
Swedish pop group Little Dragon is getting ready to release their new album, Nabuma Rubberband, next month, and we’ve already heard some promising singles like “Let Go” and “Klapp Klapp.” Yesterday they stopped by The Queen Latifah Show to perform the song “Paris.” Watch it below.
Rush Midnight Closer (Tokyo Police Club Remix)
Apr 23, 2014 2:40pm | StereoGum
On Tokyo Police Club’s new remix of Rush Midnight’s synthpop anthem “Closer,” the Canadian indie-pop band tones down the original track’s tight bass line — Rush Midnight is the solo project of bassist Russ Manning from Twin Shadow, after all — but the remixed version is still punchy and dynamic in its disco groove. Check it out.
Watch Live Forever: The Rise And Fall Of Brit Pop
Apr 23, 2014 2:34pm | StereoGum
We’re celebrating Britpop Week here at Stereogum, and while there’s lots of essential listening that comes with such a pursuit, there’s not much in the way of essential viewing. There is, however, Live Forever: The Rise And Fall Of Brit Pop, the 2003 BBC documentary directed by John Dower. The film looks back at British culture in the early ’90s, the ways in which Britpop sprung from that culture, and the ways in which Britpop changed that culture (largely peaking with the 2007 election of Tony Blair). Britpop would probably benefit from a 16-part Ken Burns-style documentary, but Dower manages to capture a great deal of history in 80-odd minutes, owing to interviews with Sleeper’s Louise Wener, Massive Attack’s 3D, Oasis tribute band Wonderwall (not, sadly, Noasis), British journalist Toby Young (How To Lose Friends And Alienate People), and artist Damien Hirst (who also created the film’s theatrical poster, pictured above). But Live Forever is an essential document because of its extensive interviews with Damon Albarn, Jarvis Cocker, and Liam and Noel Gallagher, all of whom are in absolutely perfect form: hilarious, thoughtful, insightful, quotable. It’s a pretty addicting piece of film, filled with incredible music. I’ve watched it numerous times, mostly because I start it searching for some quote or another for something I’m writing, and then, I just can’t turn it off. Look, in ...

RZA Gives Raekwon 30 Days To Get On Board Or No New Wu-Tang Album
Apr 23, 2014 2:24pm | StereoGum
In recent months we’ve been witness to an escalating feud between Wu-Tang Clan members RZA (who’s desperately trying to assemble one last group LP called A Better Tomorrow) and Raekwon (who declared himself on strike from the Wu because he thinks RZA is an out-of-touch control freak). RZA tried to win Rae over with kindness Monday, telling Hot 97, “When you form Voltron, you need every piece. We need [Raekwon] there. I want him there. I ask him over and over to be there. Lets just come together.” Now, in an interview with SI Now, RZA has laid down an ultimatum: If Raekwon doesn’t come on board within the next 30 days, the new Wu-Tang album won’t come out. RZA told host Maggie Gray that A Better Tomorrow is slated to come out in July and that as things stand currently he’ll have to decide whether to shelve the album or release it without Raekwon. Because RZA can’t imagine releasing a Wu-Tang album without every living member, he said the more likely scenario is that the record will never see the light of day. He did say he believes he and Rae will work things out, but given the trajectory of this conflict so far, that seems like wishful thinking. Watch the interview below.
A Victim of Society releasing debut LP (stream a track)
Apr 23, 2014 2:20pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
If you're from North America and you're not familiar with Athens, Greece psychedelic rock duo A Victim of Society, they may be familiar to some of your favorite psych bands. They've played recent Athens shows with The Black Angels, Moon Duo, Dirty Beaches and Disappears, and if you're a fan of any of those bands, you'll likely dig AVOS too. Their debut album, Distractions, comes out soon via Greek label Inner Ear Records (also home to their art rock neighbors The Callas), and you can get a taste of that from its single "Certain Sense," which premieres in this post. The track is a total trip through spacey guitar effects, distortion-drenched vocals, and demonic surf-rock melodies.
Check it out below...

Sigur Rós Jónsi scores atomic bomb TV show Manhattan
Apr 23, 2014 2:12pm | Fact Magazine
Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi is set to dip his toe into scoring yet again.
At this point the singer/songwriter is an old hand – aside from helping out Cameron Crowe on numerous occasions, Jónsi has also collaborated with pal (and regular foil) Alex Somers on recent indie flick The Wilderness of James, and this isn’t even mentioning all the times Sigur Rós have ended up used as cinematic catnip.
Well now Jónsi and Alex Somers are set to make a jump to the small screen, penning music for upcoming US TV show Manhattan. The series is set in the midst of the Second World War, at the point when the pursuit of new destructive technology led to the development of the frightening atomic bomb. Codenamed The Manhattan Project, the device was eventually deployed in Japan, and is seen as the action that brought the war to a bloody conclusion.
Manhattan is helmed by The West Wing‘s Thomas Schlamme, and written by Masters of Sex scribe Sam Shaw, and if anyone can help bring a sufficient blend of horror and triumph it’s Jónsi. The show is set to debut on WGN in July. [via Exclaim]
