After bursting on the scene in enigmatic fashion (little to nothing was known about their makeup) with songs “Got It Bad” and “Hot Love”, Auckland, NZ’s Leisure have been slowly leaking more info about themselves into the world with the most notable being an actual picture of the them. The versatile act that effortlessly weaves in out and out of various genres such as funk, blue-eyed soul, disco, and the softer elements of rock now have unveiled another pair of strong examples of why we are keeping major tabs on them. You will hear a little bit of Tame Impala to the Black Keys even Jungle. We can’t help but be more drawn into the sexy new “All Over You”, but there is something dark and cool about “Take It To The Top” that draws us in as well. Regardless, this is a band that everyone should be paying attention to. Listen below.

We heard Cheatahs' single "Signs To Lorelei" back in September, and today the London-based band has debuted an accompanying video in which the incandescent song is mirrored by slow-motion footage of bathers. Shooting a music video underwater is by no means an inventive concept (we saw Lana Del Rey do it just last … More »

Silent Barn hoping to reopen "in about 1 week"
Oct 9, 2015 11:43am | Brooklyn Vegan

Silent Barn say they're nearly done with repairs and reconstruction of their show space following the fire two weeks ago, and are scheduled to reopen "in about 1 week." That means a lot of their CMJ week shows will stay put, like the Sean Nicholas Savage / Promise Keeper show on Thursday (10/15), and the Dull Tools CMJ hangover show on Sunday, October 18. Whether the Wichita Records 15th Anniversary party with Adveata, Cheatahs, Murals, Oscar and Dreamcrusher on Wednesday (10/14) will stay remains to be seen.

You can see the full list of upcoming events (some have been moved to other venues) which include a few benefits, like tonight's sold out show with Alex G, Frankie Cosmos and more. Silent Barn will host cat adoption event "Meow Day" in their backyard on Sunday (10/11).

We're seeing a whole mini-genre of indie rock fake-karaoke videos, and most of them are pretty boring. But with their video for the oblique power-pop jam "Bad Ideas," Columbus folk-punks Saintseneca has fixed the problem. We do see frontman Zac Little singing his own song at karaoke, but we also see him dancing with … More »

Fawkes unveils

The producer delivers a sensory overload on ‘Edea XY (Centaurea)’

Sarah Fawkes is a producer who makes visual art that’s as beautiful and jarring as her fractured techno. She showed her skill at weaving her visual and aural work together with ‘Funeral‘ and now she’s done something similar with this new remix of ‘Edea’ from her recent Vesuval EP.

While the original had wide moments of airiness and space, ‘Edea XY’ is filled with dark smears of synth and vocals that sound like they’re constantly phasing between this world and the next. Take it in with the visuals above and download it below.

Oct 9, 2015 11:05am | Brooklyn Vegan

Having released the Lossy EP earlier this year, Maya Postepski (of Austra/TRST) will release her second album as Princess Century, titled Progress, on October 16 via Paper Bag. As on previous releases, it's deep in the world of cosmic disco, with arpeggiated synths always simmering and detours into dark alleys. If you like Giorgio Moroder's soundtrack to Midnight Express, you will probably enjoy this trip as well. Says Maya:

This record is quite personal / intimate for me. I hope you can come into it and see the lightness and playfulness, as well as the dark we all hold within. The sound is meant to communicate a great love and desire for affection with you. I want you to know me better.
Get to know Princess Century better right now -- a stream of Progress premieres in this post. Check it out, and the video for "Domestic," below.

Princess Century's Progress is available for pre-order now via Paper Bag and iTunes.
