Listen: Stars – “No One Is Lost”
Sep 29, 2014 1:10pm | CMJ

Next month, Stars will follow-up 2012’s The North with No One Is Lost on ATO. We’ve already heard the jittery club banger From The Night and the tender, soft-focus track Turn It Up and today the band dropped the album’s title track. No One Is Lost goes back in the other direction, favoring big, bold synths over sepia vintage passivity. It’s worth noting that despite the fact that the track sounds happy, its lyrics are, “Put your hands up cause everybody dies.” So there’s that. Listen below.

DJ Mustard Ghetto Tales (Feat. Jay 305 & Tee Cee) Video
Sep 29, 2014 1:08pm | StereoGum

DJ Mustard already produced our favorite rap album of the year so far — YG’s My Krazy Life — but he’s also releasing an album of his own called 10 Summers, the follow-up to his fantastic 2013 mixtape, Ketchup. The new video for “Ghetto Tales” features Jay 305 and Tee Cee, who are driven around Los Angeles by Mustard in an Impala. You essentially become a passenger in the car with them, and the visuals slide by with relaxed ease of hot summer day. Head over to MissInfo now to watch it.


The Bug Function / Void Video
Sep 29, 2014 1:06pm | StereoGum

British producer the Bug worked with South London directors Factory Fifteen and the Creators Project to create a stunning music video/short film that combines two songs — “Function” and “Void” — from his recent release, Angels and Devils. The black-and-white clip chronicles a man’s monotonous routine in a futuristic totalitarian society, until suddenly his world crumbles around him — literally. It’s a fittingly bleak narrative for a pair of thought-provoking and mournful songs. Watch below.

Weezer jam out on the Moon in video for Back To The Shack watch
Sep 29, 2014 12:53pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Weezer has shared the video for “Back To The Shack”, the nostalgia-heavy lead single to their excellent new album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End. Directed by Warren Fu (HAIM, Daft Punk), the clip portrays the band rocking out on the Moon, including some sweet slow-motion, zero-G guitar heroics. It’s a great clip and all, but knowing how nerdy Weezer is collectively, I think they would’ve made it at least a little realistic by wearing some kind of protective suit. Or maybe they’re all just wearing some futuristic, invisible suits ripped out of some anime most of us have never seen?

Take one giant leap for all mankind and watch it below (via Noisey).

Everything Will Be Alright In The End is due out October 7th via Republic Records.

In related news, frontman Rivers Cuomo recently appeared on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. They discussed Cuomo’s writing process for the new album, the release of Pinkerton, the multitude of myths surrounding Cuomo’s personal life, and more. Check out the full discussion here.

Robert Plant @ BAM - 9/27/14

Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifts released their new album lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar earlier this month and just brought their tour to the NYC-area for three dates. First, they hit Port Chester's Capitol Theater on September 25 and then came to BAM for shows on Saturday (9/27) and Sunday (9/28) which were part of Nonesuch Records at BAM. We caught Friday's show, which included five songs from the new album and seven Zeppelin songs including "Thank You," "Going to California," "Whole Lotta Love" and more. Olivia Chaney opened and the drummer of the Sensational Space Shifters sat in with her. Pictures of that one are in this post.

As you may know, Led Zeppelin are in the process of reissuing albums and the next two up are IV and Houses of the Holy which come out October 28. They've now shared the "mix minus piano" version of "The Rain Song," which you can hear below (via Pitchfork).

More pictures and Plant's setlist from Saturday, also below...

Stream Zola Jesus Taiga
Sep 29, 2014 12:52pm | StereoGum

On her new album Taiga, the former noise-goth queen Zola Jesus moves completely into the light, delivering an LP’s worth of music that welcomes way more than it repels. The songs on Taiga, like “Go (Blank Sea)” and the glorious first single “Dangerous Days,” still have that old epic, slow-motion incandescence to them. But the arrangements are cleaner and clearer than they’ve ever been, and they do more to highlight the melodies. Meanwhile, the mix foregrounds Nika Roza Danilova’s enormous voice; it’s way more prominent than it’s been on previous Zola Jesus records. And right now, you can stream the full album at The New York Times.

Taiga is out 10/7 on Mute.

Watch Alt-J Cover Disclosures Latch
Sep 29, 2014 12:47pm | StereoGum

Alt-J just released their sophomore album, This Is All Yours (which we reviewed here), and stopped by BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge to talk and play some songs. They covered fellow UK darlings Disclosure’s “Latch.” Neither of them come close to the powerful vocal performance Sam Smith gave on that song (in fact, they sound really off key — but maybe that’s the point? I don’t know anymore…), but it’s an interesting take on the song none the less. Watch below.

Lucius Wonderful (My Morning Jacket Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 29, 2014 12:37pm | StereoGum

Brooklyn quintet Lucius made their name in part on the strength of a flashy stage show in which the leading ladies harmonize powerfully while looking like each other’s mirror image. It’s an electrifying show that’s won the approval of collaborators Mavis Staples, Tweedy, and the Rentals, but don’t let those wildly entertaining performances trick you into thinking Lucius let the showmanship get in the way of the music. The group’s acoustic cover of My Morning Jacket’s Circuital ballad “Wonderful,” recorded live at Los Angeles radio station KCSN, dispels any such notions. The band puts their own stamp on the tune by infusing it with their trademark harmonies and subtly beautiful guitar flourishes, then kick into gear for a big finish. “I will never grow older,” they sing, “at least not in my mind.” It will be included in the deluxe reissue of Lucius’ Wildewoman next month, but you can hear it below right now.


Watch: The History Of Apple Pie – “Jamais Vu” Video
Sep 29, 2014 12:36pm | CMJ

We already loved Jamais Vu, the catchy, ’90s vibey single from the History Of Apple Pie’s 2nd LP, Feel Something. The album is out tomorrow, and today the London indie-pop band celebrated the release with the unveiling of a cool new video for Jamais Vu. The video, which pulls color palette and wardrobe inspiration from the films of Wes Anderson, finds the band engaged in a cinematic pursuit, with the boys of the band hunting the girls and vice versa. Check out the video below to find out who wins, and pick up the record tomorrow via Marshall Teller.

Weezer Back To The Shack Video
Sep 29, 2014 12:31pm | StereoGum

Weezer’s just unveiled the video for Everything Will Be Alright In The End’s lead single, “Back In The Shack.” The clip is directed by Warren Fu — who has also done stuff for Daft Punk, the Killers, Julian Casablancas, and Haim — and sees the band performing on the moon, which is pretty much the only place they haven’t played yet. Noisey has some exclusive stills from the shoot, and you can watch the video below.


Young Thug 2 Bs (Danny Glover) Video
Sep 29, 2014 12:30pm | StereoGum

Early in the year, Atlanta cult-rap weirdo solidified his unlikely street-rap stardom with two absolute bangers, “Stoner” and “Danny Glover.” Both of those tracks got videos months late, and the “Danny Glover” video only just arrived. The track, which is apparently now called “2 B’s” (possibly for post-”Rosa Parks” legal reasons) appeared on the great Black Portland mixtape back in winter, and it was old even then. It’s hard to say the video is worth the wait, but it’s an appealingly nutso piece of low-budget horror-movie fakery. And it’s worth watching just to see what Thug’s wearing: The red nail polish! The frilly 1840s sea-captain uniform! The raccoon tail, or whatever that is! There’s also an interlude in which Birdman plays Phantom Of The Opera and insists that he doesn’t like using profanity. Be El Be directed the video, and you can behold it in all its glory below.


Video : Superfood : Mood Bomb
Sep 29, 2014 12:25pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

If you long for the days of mid to late ’90s Britpop, quartet Superfood are a must listen. Having already created buzz via various EPs and singles, the band is gearing up for the release of their debut album, Don’t Say That, on November 4th through Infectious Music. The video for the song matches the vibrancy of the fantastic single with splashes of color and nonsensical psych imagery directed by Charlotte Rutherford. Watch below and be on the lookout for them at various UK stops in the coming months with, hopefully, some Stateside dates on the horizon.
