Keith Richards pens children's book
Mar 11, 2014 3:52pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Keith Richards in Japan last month w/ the
Stones (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
Keith Richards has time on his side. The Rolling Stones guitarist/skeleton is slated to follow his 2010 autobiography, Life, with another book this year. It's um... a children's book called Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar and is due out on September 9 via Little, Brown and Company's Young Readers division (LBC also handled Life). It's unsurprisingly Richards' first foray into writing for kids, and will be a collaboration with his illustrator daughter Theodora Richards. "I have just become a grandfather for the fifth time, so I know what I'm talking about," Mr. Richards said in a statement. OK, Keith.
Anyone have an alternate title?

Listen: Superhumanoids Rice Queen
Mar 11, 2014 3:35pm | CMJ
Superhumanoid’s 2013 release Exhibitionists was a dream-pop ode to the guilty moments that follow a lustful and hazy bedroom fantasy. Today, the Los Angeles outfit released Exhibitionists B-Side & Remixes via Innovative Leisure, which features new original songs along with a few remixes of Exhibitionists cuts.
Rice Queen is one of the brand new tracks, and starts off with a single lonely synth line reminiscent of a dark walk home in the rain. As the track builds, more elegant synths and strings enter the mix, and it’s easy to visualize the type of dead-silent dark bedroom scene that Exhibitionists originally created. Give it a listen below.

Theres a petition to have part of New Yorks King Street renamed after Larry Levan
Mar 11, 2014 3:05pm | Fact Magazine
There’s a petition to rename part of New York’s King Street – home of legendary club the Paradise Garage – after Larry Levan, resident DJ at the club.
Levan and the Paradise Garage’s legacy isn’t just a musical one – the club was an important part of the city’s gay scene in the 1970s and 1980s. You can sign the petition here, and read its accompanying pitch below.
Last year, FACT spoke to Boston DJs Soul Clap about the importance of Levan. You can read that feature here, and watch a two hour video of the Paradise Garage’s closing party here.

YVETTEs Everything In Reverse video begins natures purge of humanity
Mar 11, 2014 2:43pm | Chart Attack
If the Earth is a generally polite, well-meaning host, humanity is like the drunk friend at the party who overstays his welcome, drives out the gentler folks with his crude antics, then starts puking everywhere while denying the stains are doing anything to ruin the furniture.
We’re living in a time when our pal the planet is starting the process of throwing our ass onto the lawn of history, and “Everything in Reverse” from Brooklyn noise-punks YVETTE could be a harbinger for that trend. Anthony Sylvester shoots an industrial park backwards and into a menacing atmosphere: smoke stacks inhale their pollutants, the tide sucks back, and cars reverse to their destination. But check that spiral in the screencap up there: possible True Detective shout out?
YVETTE’s new album Process is out now via GODMODE.

Built to Spill at Irving Plaza in 2013 (more by Caroline
As discussed, indie rock vets Built to Spill are playing some Northeast club shows surrounding their appearance at Boston Calling and their opening slot on Death Cab's upstate NY show. That includes two NYC shows (5/20 at MHOW, 5/21 at Bowery Ballroom), which are now sold out, but since we last spoke they expanded their tour, including a THIRD NYC show happening on May 15 at Brookln Bowl. Tickets for the newly-added show go on sale Friday (3/14) at noon.
Much sooner, they'll play Treefort Music Festival in their hometown of Boise, ID where they're promising a set of all new songs. Hopefully this means a new album is on the way. Updated dates, including a NJ show, are listed below...

Neil Youngs PonoMusic finally launches, heres all the details
Mar 11, 2014 2:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound
For the last several years, Neil Young been working on a digital music service called PONO, which he says will enhance the quality and compression of MP3s. Now, as The Guardian reports, it’s finally ready to make its debut at South by Southwest on Tuesday.
In anticipation, the company has detailed its portable listening device, the PonoPlayer, a 128GB triangular, touchscreen gadget priced at $399. (For comparison, a 64GB iPod touch retails at the same price). Though no official on-sale date has been revealed, a Kickstarter campaign will launch on March 15th with the PonoPlayer available for pre-order at a discounted price.
Developed with Ayer Acoustics, the PonoPlayer reportedly makes use of zero-feedback circuitry and a minimum phase digital filter aimed at eliminating the “unnatural pre-ringing” that can often be heard on digital tracks. As Young stated late last year, the goal of all this technology is to liberate “the music of the artist from the digital file and [restore] it to its original artistic quality as it was in the studio.”
With 128GB onboard storage and space for memory card expansions, the PonoPlayer is said to store ”1,000 to 2,000 high-resolution digital-music albums.” These numbers, however, have already come into question on sites like Computer Audiophile. User goldsdad, for example, points out that a 128GB device “typically stores fewer than...
Teen Daze Tokyo Winter
Mar 11, 2014 2:13pm | StereoGum
Last year Teen Daze put out the appropriately named album Glacier, a collection of glistening ambient electronic cuts. And now he’ll release a new EP this month titled Paradiso. “Tokyo Winter,” the sprawling, nearly-eight-minute closer, begins in underwater ambience but quickly grows into a beat and synth heavy journey. Listen and download below.
The Field No. No (Tim Hecker Mix)
Mar 11, 2014 2:10pm | StereoGum
While talking about the creation of Cupid’s Head, his most recent album as the Field, techno producer Axel Willner often said the centerpiece “No. No” was the track that inspired and unlocked the creation of the rest of the album. It’s fitting then that that song has been given a remix EP. Here drone/noise musician Tim Hecker has given a glacial reworking of the track, though it’s still a prettier respite from Hecker’s fractured, apocalyptic Virgins from last year. Hecker and Willner made some of the best albums of their careers in 2013, and it’s exciting to hear them together in this way in 2014. Listen below.
