Arkells and Jessy Lanza offer two different visions for Hamilton as a music city at Supercrawl
Sep 15, 2014 12:11pm | Chart Attack
This year's sixth Supercrawl was bigger than ever. The Hamilton, Ontario street festival had already been developing a reputation as a legitimate destination for Canadian music and art, but last year's high point of 100,000 people was nearly surpassed by this year's first night.
Much of the credit is undoubtedly due to Friday headliners Arkells. Not only did the hometown heroes attract as big a crowd as the festival's other big draw, Spoon, they also sponsored and curated their own stage, full of Steeltown talent both legendary (Teenage Head, who basically paved the way for Canadian indie rock to come) and up-and-coming (UNCHARTED alumni/DIY scene organizers WTCHS).
That's a big statement for Hamilton as a supportive music city with its own hardscrabble "work-in-progress" character, distinct from the much bigger scene in nearby Toronto, which is something Arkells have been repping hard as they outgrow the local stages they were reared on. Between them and the bands they booked, Arkells, and by extension Supercrawl, seemed to be staking out the city's identity as the New Jersey to Toronto's New York - the somewhat grimy industrial town that rocks harder and more passionately because it's had to work for everything it's got. A classic underdog rock and roll story.
Hamilton, I love you. You're kind of gross sometimes, but I love you anyway."
Check Out The Ridiculous Run The Jewels 2 Deluxe Packages
Sep 15, 2014 12:08pm | StereoGum
Because they are upstanding young men who care about your wellbeing, El-P and Killer Mike are offering RTJ2, their second album as Run The Jewels, as a free download, just as they did with last year’s Run The Jewels. But as they did with that album, they’re also offering you plenty of chances to pay money for the album, if you feel like it. There are plenty of different bundled versions of the new album available for preorder, ranging from the $10 WAV/FLAC digital package to a one-of-a-kind $5,000 super duper collectors deluxe edition, which includes four LPs of master discs, both the master and instrumental versions, as well as a rare test pressing, a four-LP teal and rare vinyl version, a CD, a T-shirt, a signed poster, and a vinyl insert poster and sticker sheet. Or at least, the $5,000 version seems to be the most elaborate one that anyone would actually buy. There are some deeply fantastical editions of the album available too.

Robert Scott Vertigo Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 15, 2014 11:55am | StereoGum
Robert Scott logged time in two of New Zealand’s greatest, most influential bands, the Bats and the Clean. He just released a new solo album called The Green House, and today he unveils the colorful cartoon video for “Vertigo,” one of the intimate album’s most upbeat tracks. Director Katie Brockie’s highly entertaining clip tracks the fearful exploits of three wide-eyed characters in what appears to be a mountainous, monster-infested ice world. Max Howard-Martens did some wonderful animation here, and Scott’s song is maximal power-pop done right. Watch below.
Song : Vök : Við Vokum
Sep 15, 2014 11:47am | My Old Kentucky Blog
With the breakup of The Knife, we have been holding out hope for another Fever Ray album sometimes in the near future. However, new song “Við Vokum” from Hafnarfjörður, Iceland trio Vök fills that void quite nicely. The song twists minimalist elements of The xx, scattering synths, and a woozy sax solo. The result is a unnerving mood that still manages to seduce the listener. You can find the song on their upcoming five-track debut EP, Tension, out in October via The MuseBox Records. Stream it below.

Medicine Move Along Down The Road (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 15, 2014 11:41am | StereoGum
L.A. shoegaze veterans Medicine recently announced Home Everywhere, their second album since ending a nearly two-decade hiatus last year, and shared lead single “Turning.” Now here’s a second song from the album called “Move Along – Down The Road.” Whereas “Turning” tapped into a Broadcast-like avant-pop sound, this latest track adds a psychedelic swirl to Medicine’s noise-pop surge, like Tame Impala trapped in a tornado. Hear it below.
Mount Eerie debuts new song Dragon watch
Sep 15, 2014 11:40am | Cosequence Of Sound
Singer-songwriter Phil Elverum, aka Mount Eerie, is currently in the midst of a month-long US tour during which hes performing “extremely stripped-down” versions of tracks from his upcoming double album, Sauna. While in Ontario recently, he filmed a performance for the Pinball Sessions, which included the debut of a track called “Dragon”.
In its current “stripped-down” state, “Dragon” is a delicate and mournful folk ballad that takes cues from Nick Drakes emotionality and Donovans more dramatic qualities.
Watch the video below.
Sauna will arrive in early 2015 via Elverums own P. W. Elverum & Sun. Recorded over the last 15 months in Anacortes, Washington, the double album deals with the themes of “Vikings and zen and real life,” according to a press release.
See Elverums remaining tour schedule below.

Hero Rushes Stage And Stops Widespread Panic Concert
Sep 15, 2014 11:30am | StereoGum
If I found myself at a Widespread Panic concert, I would probably try to make it stop. Apparently some dude at the Phases Of The Moon festival in Danville, Illinois felt the same way. During a performance of “Bust It Big,” a stage-crasher got on stage and tried to assault the band. Jambase described it as a scary scene, but from what I see in the fan-made footage, the security staff just seems amused. If the assailant’s intent was to silence the music, well, he at least slowed it to a spaced-out crawl. Watch the ordeal unfold below.

Back in July, Nick Hakim released Where Will We Go Pt. 1, an EP that served as the thrilling debut of a new artist. Buried in this Brooklyn songwriter’s smooth sound is a mastery of a vintage soul aesthetic, reinvigorated by an artist with a distinct vision and an incredible ear for sonic texture. We’ve also heard a few tracks from that EP’s companion, Where Will We Go Pt. 2, including the crackling, warm EP closer Lift Me Up. Today, Hakim has made the entire new EP, including previously unheard tracks Sleep and Heaven, available to stream. Like its predecessor, the EP sees its release on Hakim’s own Earseed label, and is available for download on iTunes. Where Will We Go Pt. 2 is a welcome expansion to the catalogue of one of the year’s most unique and promising new artists.
Stream the EP below, and check out Hakim’s upcoming tour dates below, and stay tuned for more details on his impending appearances at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon.

Stream King Tuff Black Moon Spell
Sep 15, 2014 11:26am | StereoGum
Kyle Thomas has made noise with a lot of different bands: Happy Birthday, Feathers, Witch. But he really hit his artistic stride when he renamed himself King Tuff and started knocking out snotty, scabby, attitudinally glammed-out garage rock. King Tuff’s new album Black Moon Spell is due next week, and the whole thing rips and snorts and kicks and struts. We’ve posted the early songs “Eyes Of The Muse,” “Black Moon Spell,” and “Headbanger,” but the whole thing is a total obnoxious blast. And right now, you can stream all of it at NPR.
Black Moon Spell is out 9/23 on Sub Pop.
Bill Murray crashes a birthday party, plays air guitar, dances along to Turn Down For What watch
Sep 15, 2014 11:23am | Cosequence Of Sound
Who knows if we’ll ever find out for sure what happened on that fateful day when Skrillex and Diplo DJ’ed at Burning Man. However, had Billy Murray been in attendance, at least one person would have dropped to the beat.
In the latest amazing tale of Bill Murray being Bill Murray, the actor crashed a birthday party in Charleston, South Carolina over the weekend. Murray, a resident of Charleston himself, was friends with the chef charged with catering the event. However, while his buddy was busy cooking up meatballs in the kitchen, Murray was leading an epic dance party soundtracked by DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What”. He also played air guitar along to Tommy Tutone’s “867-5309″.
Stars From The Night Video
Sep 15, 2014 11:16am | StereoGum
Last month we heard “From The Night,” the restrained-then-ecstatic lead single from Stars’ new album No One Is Lost. Now the band has shared a video that casts the song’s chorus, “I don’t care if we never come back from the night,” as a mantra for boozing ’til dawn. “We went out, like we always do, we got drunk, like we sometimes do, we saw friends that we don’t see enough and we filmed it all,” frontman Torquil Campbell told Spin. “Enjoy.” Darren Curtis directed. There is also a person in a bunny suit. Watch below.
Hot Victory made a video for "Island Realm" (watch)
Sep 15, 2014 11:14am | Brooklyn Vegan
Portland, OR duo Hot Victory put out their self titled LP (their fourth album) earlier this year around the time tour toured with Floor. Here's what Wyatt said about it then:
Portland's Hot Victory throws a kitchen sink of drums, drum pads, synths, tape loops, samples--you name it--together in pretty fascinating ways. It's the work of just one woman and one man, but it could just as easily be the output of an army of talented DIYers raiding the local music store.One of the LP's tracks, "Island Realm," has now been given video treatment and the video provides some insight into how this crazy music came out with clips of them drumming and toying with electronics. It premieres in this post and can be watched below.
