Pro Wrestlers Are Asking The Mountain Goats To Write Songs About Them Now
May 4, 2015 11:03am | StereoGum
The great new Mountain Goats album Beat The Champ is all about the pro wrestling that frontman John Darnielle watched when he was a kid growing up in Southern California. Before making the new album, Darnielle wasn't particularly up on things that were happening in pro wrestling today. But before the album came out, … More »



John Vanderslice
May 4, 2015 11:02am | StereoGum
Lots of musicians have taken a crack at Jason Molina's music, particularly since we lost the legendary Songs: Ohia/Magnolia Electric Co. frontman to alcohol-inflicted organ failure two years ago. But I haven't heard a Molina cover I like as much as John Vanderslice's rendition of "Long Dark Blues," the demo that would eventually blossom … More »



Stream : Princess Chelsea :
May 4, 2015 10:48am | My Old Kentucky Blog

If you are looking for an album to fully throw yourself into that balances accessibility with enough oddities to keep things interesting, New Zealander Chelsea Nikkel aka Princess Chelsea’s new LP The Great Cybernetic Depression will satisfy. The LP is a concept record taking place 10 years into the future after a metaphorical world event using lush, technicolor arrangements to shine hope through the melancholic lyrics, like awakening from a bad dream to immense sunlight. Think Disney fairytale meets science-fiction and an album that will mold itself to adapt to the different emotions you may be feeling on any given day. Find the stream below and pick up the limited-edition nebula colored vinyl here. It is out now in New Zealand and everywhere else on June 8th via Flying Nun / Lil’ Chief.

Madison Square Garden will go vegan for Morrissey show

Earlier this year, it was reported that Morrissey cancelled an Iceland show because the venue serves meat. Our fingers are crossed that he doesn't find some reason to cancel his upcoming Madison Square Garden (6/27) show with Blondie, but we can at least be assured it won't be for that.

Consequence of Sound points out that in his recent open letter to Al Gore, he included the following:

Not only is it possible for venues to provide a 100 percent meat-free menu-as is done now at every concert venue in which I perform, including Madison Square Garden, where I have a show at the end of June-it's also a moral duty.
New York Post clarifies that there will also be no dairy products, making the venue 100% vegan for the show. MSG officials declined NY Post's request for comment, but Daily Burger owner Drew Nieporent (who also co-owns Nobu and other big NYC restaurants) told them, "This is the first time I'm hearing about it, but I love my man Morrissey. He's a wonderful artist, so I wouldn't mind. He can do whatever he wants."

Ireland's brash, loud Girl Band, who visited in March around SXSW, will be heading back to North America for a tour in June. They'll spend part of that opening for Viet Cong, including both Northside Fest shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg, both of which are sold out. (You can still try and get in with a Northside badge.) Additionally, Girl Band will also play Brooklyn's Rough Trade on June 25. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/8) at noon.

Today, the Memphis noise rapper Cities Aviv releases his new album Your Discretion Is Trust. It's the follow-up to 2014's Come To Life, and it's coming out on Collect Records, the label founded by former Thursday leader and current United Nations/No Direction frontman Geoff Rickly. That's a pretty fascinating artist/label pairing. Cities Aviv's … More »

College is one of those rarefied experiences that people use to signify a certain point in their lives, a certain frame of mind. Whether it's binge drinking, promiscuity and poor partner choices, or an impoverished ramen-for-breakfast lifestyle, college serves as the one word, all-encompassing excuse for all sorts of ludicrous behavior. On "No Mind No … More »

May 4, 2015 10:00am | Cosequence Of Sound

Blur @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg: May 1, 2015
May 4, 2015 9:57am | CMJ


Friday night, Converse brought a poorly-kept-secret Blur show to the Music Hall Of Williamsburg, kicking off what appears to be a comeback for the venerated U.K. Britpop band. The crowd that wound around the block early to get in were not disappointed, as not only was the band in top form and leader Damon Albarn in the red on the charm meter, but the show was being professionally filmed, and so the band seemed to be even more focused for it. Brooklyn indie rock notables like Nick Zinner and umpteen industry people shuffled about, as well as non-guitar slingin’ stars like Jennifer Connelly and her hubby Paul Bettany. It was that kind of show. An excellent start to a welcome return for Blur.

Locals Honduras got the dream opening gig and did not drop the ball, charging forth with their fevered pop.
