Bon Iver

Earlier this week, Eaux Claires Music & Arts Festival curators Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Aaron Dessner (The National) sent out a mixtape to people who bought early bird tickets to the festival. It had unreleased music from several artists, who were presumably set to play the festival. Now the official lineup is announced, and it has several of those artists plus a lot more exciting stuff.

Possibly most excitingly, the Dessner brothers are presenting 'Day of the Dead,' which will have a number of musicians paying tribute to the Grateful Dead, like The National and their friends are doing for their upcoming tribute album. Eaux Claires also features James Blake and Bon Iver (who are rumored to also collaborate at the festival), Beach House, Eighth Blackbird with Bryce Dessner & Bonnie 'Prince Billy, Erykah Badu, Jenny Lewis, Jon Hopkins, Mavis Staples, Melvins, Deafheaven, My Brightest Diamond, Nathaniel Rateliff, Phosphorescent, S. Carey, Sarah Neufeld, Shabazz Palaces, Vince Staples, Tenement, LNZNDRF, Bruce Hornsby (performing The Way It Is), Cornelius (performing Fantasma) and more.

The festival happens August 12 & 13 in Eau Claire, WI. Tickets go on sale Friday (...

Black Mountian - Mother Of The Sun videoVancouver-birthed psych-rock greats Black Mountain haven't released a proper studio album since 2010's Wilderness Heart, but they're coming back later this year with a new LP that comes bearing the appropriately-epic title IV. The first song we've heard from the album is the sprawling, eight-minute "Mothers Of The Sun," which starts out narcotized and … More »

Fruit Bats

After Fruit Bats main member Eric D Johnson put out a record as EDJ, he went back to Fruit Bats and now he's ready to release the band's next album, Absolute Loser, on May 13 via Easy Sound Recording Co. The first single is "From A Soon-To-Be Ghost Town," which brings a country-ish twang into the classic Fruit Bats sound. Check out a visual for the song below.

Fruit Bats will also be touring in the spring. But much sooner than that, Eric D Johnson teams with Sam Cohen and Kevin Morby (who also just put out a great new song) for a collaborative set at NYC's The Box on Saturday (2/13). The show description reads, "Sam, Eric and Kevin will accompany one another on new arrangements of their songs. They will also each cover one song by their fellow performers. It promises to be different take on the songs spanning their careers." Tickets are available.

Eddie Vedder performs My Generation with Adam Sandler, Norm MacDonald (!) watch
Feb 11, 2016 9:30am | Cosequence Of Sound

Former Saturday Night Live cast members Adam Sandler, David Spade, Rob Schneider, and the legend himself, Norm MacDonald, have teamed up for a comedy tour. Last night they played a gig at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre, and who might show up but Kevin Nealon! Just kidding, it was actually Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder. Apparently the comedians had trouble performing The Who’s “My Generation” so Vedder came out for an assist. Watch fan-shot footage below.

Seriously, thank god Kevin Nealon didn’t show up. I can take only so much of his hack Xarelto schtick.

Fetty Wap played two Irving Plaza shows with Post Malone and 50 Cent (pics, video, review)

Fetty Wap / Post Malone & 50 Cent
Fetty Wap
Post Malone

Fetty Wap is currently on tour in support of his unstoppable hits-filled 2015 debut album, and he stopped by NYC this week for sold-out Irving Plaza shows on Tuesday (2/9) and last night (2/10). I got there last night just as opener Post Malone was finishing up. For both nights he brought out 50 Cent, who was doing "What Up Gangsta" as I got in. 50's new material isn't so hot but he still brings it live on those old favorites. Then Post Malone finished up with his hit "White Iverson" (which he had also played earlier in the set). I'm still not 100% sure what to make of this guy, but no question that song gets stuck in your head and everytime he put the mic down the crowd sang it for him.

Fetty didn't waste much time at all getting on stage (he was actually seven minutes early). His DJ came out right after Post Malone left, and after warming the crowd up, they played a video on the big screen about Fetty's pre-fame roots. Then Fetty took the stage and delivered nonstop for his 40-ish minute set. Fetty hardly has any songs that aren't hits. Even the ones that didn't technically crac...

Black Mountain releasing 'IV' and share video for "Mothers of the Sun, touring this spring (dates)
Feb 11, 2016 9:24am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Black Mountain

Black Mountain will release their new album, IV, via Jagjaguwar on April 1. The first single is an eight-minute monster titled "Mothers of the Sun" whose core riff the band has had in their back pocket for some time. Says guitarist Stephen McBean, "Sometimes a riff hangs out in the basement for 10 years before it's finally ready to hit the streets." The video, directed by Ben Jacques and Justin Gradin, aims as wide as the song with a plethora of psychedelic and mystical imagery. Watch below.

Black Mountain will be on tour this spring, including a stop at Levitation in Austin. No East Coast shows announced at this time, unfortunately. All dates are listed below.

Nicolas Jaar remixes Kanye Wests Blood on the Leaves listen

The Life of Pablo, the new album from Kanye West, finally arrives later today after much anticipation, name changes and holdups, and Twitter meltdowns. Before we have a record chock-full of fresh Yeezy material, though, producer Nicolas Jaar is revisiting one of the MC’s 2013 tracks, “Blood on the Leaves”, with a new remix.

Jaar’s atmospheric reworking actually dates back to 2014, where it served as the backdrop for a short film honoring the artist Barbara Kruger. The Pippa Bianco-directed visual was commissioned by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and made its premiere at South By Southwest last year.

Check out the remix/short film below and/or here.
