Brooklyns Glasslands Is Closing
Oct 21, 2014 10:15am | StereoGum

Looks like another Williamsburg venue is closing up shop. Following last month’s news that Death By Audio would be closing in November, Glasslands — which is right around the corner from DBA — has announced that they will be shutting down as well. In a post on their website today, they said that their last show will be on New Year’s Eve. Glasslands opened in 2006 and quickly became a staple on the Williamsburg waterfront, surrounded by a once-burgeoning strip of concert venues, most of which have been shuttered or have moved further inland. Known for an eclectic and diverse roster and notoriously shitty lighting that made it really hard to snap a good photo, it was one of the good ones. Stereogum even hosted a number of shows there over the years, including for CMJ 2011 and 2012. Rest in peace. Read the venue’s full statement below:


Torn Hawk Acceptance Speech
Oct 21, 2014 10:06am | StereoGum

If “I’m Flexible” didn’t convince you that Torn Hawk’s Let’s Cry And Do Pushups At The Same Time is worthy of your feverish anticipation, try “Acceptance Speech” on for size. Luke Wyatt’s latest “visual single” is an effervescent guitar mirage that sounds like a crackling dub of the Top Gun soundtrack — think Mark McGuire’s nostalgic instrumental sprawl hemmed into a more compact, pop-friendly context. It’s matched with pixellated visuals that seem to be culled from a hallucinatory Photoshop session. All together, it’s a wonderful piece of work. Watch and listen below.


Big Star share Daisy Glaze from upcoming vinyl release of Live in Memphis listen
Oct 21, 2014 10:05am | Cosequence Of Sound

As previously reported, Big Stars only known concert film, Live in Memphis, will be released on DVD for the first time ever on November 4th. The hour-long film chronicles the band’s hometown performance at New Daisy from October 29th, 1994. Today, Omnivore Recordings has offered up a sneak peek of the newly-remastered audio in the form of “Daisy Glaze”.

Originally found on 1974’s Radio City, the track opens with the album version’s slow, simple guitars, albeit amped up a couple notches as to accommodate for the live setting. Frontman Alex Chilton’s pristine voice comes in crystal clear over Jody Stephens’ pounding drums, immediately establishing the song’s core dynamic. As Chilton’s vocals waver achingly, Stephens suddenly pummels his kit with the intensity of a Norse thunder god, signaling a tempo shift as the song blasts upward. After all that bravado and noise, hearing the late Chilton let out his quick “thanks” at the end is nearly as breathtaking as the track itself.

You couldn’t ask for a crisper live recording, so listen in below. Just think, if the audio makes it feel this real, imagine what the video will do.

Available digitally as well as on CD or double LP, Live in Memphis includes the full 20-song audio recording of the show, plus liner notes penned by Stephen...

Ariel Pink: Everybodys a victim, except for small, white, nice guys who just want to touch some boobies
Oct 21, 2014 10:05am | Fact Magazine

Ariel Pink‘s already pissed off half of the indie world, and now he’s aiming for the masses.

The Haunted Graffiti singer, who showed some particularly nasty colours in an interview earlier this year, took aim at Madonna – who he claimed wanted him aboard her new album – in an interview this month.

An army of Madonna fans took to Twitter to berate him for his comments, while Grimes claimed that his “delusional misogyny” was “emblematic of the kind of bullshit everyone woman in this industry faces daily”.

In a new interview with the New Yorker, Pink responds to the Madonna reaction – as well as MySpace’s claim that he was the most hated man in indie rock. And it’s pretty clear that he’s now just trolling. From the piece:

In the car, Pink began to explain his feelings of persecution while fingering a cigarette with one hand and scrolling Twitter with the other. What if I committed suicide and tweeted, Thank you, guys. You were right? he said, of Twitters mob mentality, which he then equated with the Hutu Power movement. This is how, uh, Rwanda happened. His publicist, a young woman, leaned forward preëmptively from the back seat. Pink was particularly irked that his criticism of Madonna had been deemed misogynistic, a charge that he has faced before. Everybo...

Glasslands closing after New Year's Eve
Oct 21, 2014 10:04am | Brooklyn Vegan

the ol' Glasslands clouds (and Parenthetical Girls) (more by Amanda Hatfield)

First Death by Audio, and now their neighbors Glasslands. The venue just posted the following:

Dearest friends -

You're probably getting used to hearing news like this in Williamsburg, so we'll cut right to the chase: this New Year's Eve will be Glasslands' final night of music.

When Glasslands opened in 2006 as an experimental community art space, Kent Avenue felt like a forgotten backwater, scattered with old warehouses playing temporary home to non-profit arts collectives, galleries, and DIY shows. During that time, our single block saw a handful of historically ambitious art & music spaces open: Secret Project Robot/Lives With Animals, Paris London West Nile, Pyramids, Death By Audio, 285 Kent... we're proud to have grown up in this place and time.

It was an awesome blur: there were shows with MGMT, TV On The Radio, Bon Iver, Yeasayer, Disclosure, Alt-J, there were Soul Clap dance competitions, there were aerialists, comedians, theater groups, fashion shows, raves.

Most importantly, the staff, artists, and party people that have been a part of Glasslands for the past 8 years made the venue a special creative home for music, and a joy to run. It's impossible to fully communicate how grateful we are for all your love and support.

We've got a few months left, and we intend for them to be our best ever. Please come...

Get On Down reveal Record Store Day exclusives including a playable vinyl postcard
Oct 21, 2014 9:59am | Fact Magazine

Black Friday is almost upon us.

Anyone outside of the USA could be excused for not really knowing what Black Friday is – it’s basically the day after Thanksgiving, and has become known as the most important shopping day of the year. Cue retailers tripping over each other to make sure their deal’s the best on the block, and understandably Record Store Day became very interested in the idea of offering a bunch of exclusive releases to give the nation’s vinyl retailers something special to hawk.

Get On Down’s selection for Black Friday is looking particularly ace, and rather than just press up a few unnecessary live Phish LPs, they’ve gone for something far more, well, interesting. At the top of the pile is a bumper boxset (seriously this thing has to be seen to be believed) from James Brown’s People Records packed with a bunch of essential 7″s from the label, each lovingly recreated with art from the original label.

Elsewhere there are a couple of Christmas records (’tis the season, after all): Run DMC’s ‘Christmas in Hollis’ is back in print for the first time in 15 years and has been pressed on 7″ and comes with a magnificent playable vinyl postcard (we’re desperate to hear how one of these sounds after being mailed across the world). Also, there’s a reissue of 1987 compilation Christmas Rap featuring tracks from Run DMC, Sweet Tee, The S...

Primordial Come The Flood (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 21, 2014 9:57am | StereoGum

Smoke drifts through the trees like a premonition. Everywhere the scent of burning pine, so sharp it stings. Tongues of flame lick at rotting timber; an inrush of wind stokes the glow on the horizon. Everything burns. The rains come too late to save anything worth saving, and what’s left in the end? Soggy ash, smoking ruins, devastation wrought. And … scene.


Los Angeles Police Department Enough Is Enough Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 21, 2014 9:53am | StereoGum

Band To Watch Los Angeles Police Department’s warm and pillowy self-titled debut album from earlier this year is only sounding better as the cold chill of winter begins to descend on NYC, though I guess frontman Ryan Pollie doesn’t have to worry about that considering he’s all the way out on the other side of the country. His video for “Enough Is Enough” captures the fleeting pleasures of summer well enough, though (maybe it’s because he grew up just outside of Philly). Pollie’s seen playing guitar in a comfy-looking Giants sweater, peeking through trees, picking some fruit, and laying down in some water. Much like his music, the video is simple and unassuming. Watch below, plus check out his upcoming tour dates where he’ll be opening for Avi Buffalo.


Watch a 3D make-out session in Sage Caswells Amber Gloss / Making Out
Oct 21, 2014 9:52am | Fact Magazine

The LA house producer debuts on Archie Pelago’s eponynous label.

Body High affiliate Sage Caswell is another player in Los Angeles’ growing house and techno scene, most often popping up with frequent collaborator Cromie. Caswell made his solo debut earlier this year, and he’ll keep the house grooves coming with an EP for Archie Pelago‘s label. Good To See You / To Be Continued features three synth-swaddled, body-jacking originals and an Archie Pelago take on one of his early tunes, ‘Buyerside’.

‘Amber Gloss/Making Out’ is a seven-minute microcosm of the EP and its video is the perfect accompaniment. Co-directed by Caswell and 3D mapper Brian Randall, the kaleidoscopic clip lives up to the song’s title. Good To See You / To Be Continued is due out November 3 via Archie Pelago Music.

Watch The Trailer For R.E.M. By MTV
Oct 21, 2014 9:51am | StereoGum

MTV isn’t really in the business of saluting important musical figures, but the network has put together a new documentary honoring R.E.M., going back through their own faults of footage to tell the band’s story. From the looks of things, the doc will include very early footage of the band, from when they still looked like babies, and it’ll cover them all the way up into the final years of the band. The doc is airing on MTV, and it’ll also be included in a forthcoming six-DVD box set called REMTV, which has both of the band’s MTV Unplugged sessions, as well as various TV appearances and live performances. Watch a trailer for the doc below.


The Big Lebowski soundtrack to appear on vinyl for the first time
Oct 21, 2014 9:48am | Fact Magazine

Henry Mancini, Yma Sumac and more on this ace OST.

The soundtrack to the Coen brothers’ classic (dare we say… best?) film The Big Lebowski is coming out on vinyl for the very first time.

The OST will be pressed on cream-coloured vinyl and released by Island/Mercury in a limited edition as part of Record Store Days Black Friday bonanza on November 28.

A browse of the tracklist reminded us that there’s more to the Dude’s record collection than Kenny Rogers (though that tune, used in that dream sequence, remains wonderful)  you’ll also find more off-the-wall material from Captain Beefheart, Meredith Monk and Moondog.

Check out the full tracklist below. [via CoS]


01 Bob Dylan The Man In Me
02 Captain Beefheart Her Eyes Are A Blue Million Miles
03 Elvis Costello My Mood Swings
04 Yma Sumac Ataypura
05 Piero Piccioni Traffic Boom
06 Nina Simone I Got It Bad And That Aint Good
07 Moondog with Orchestra Stamping Ground
08 Kenny Rogers and The First Edition Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)
09 Meredith Monk Walking Song
10 Gluck Das Mir Verblieb Die Tote Standt
11 Henry Mancini Lujon
12 Gipsy Kings Hotel California
13 Carter Burwell Technopop
14 Townes Van Zandt Dead ...

Museum Of Love The Whos Who Of Who Cares Video
Oct 21, 2014 9:44am | StereoGum

Museum Of Love — a new collaboration between former LCD Soundsystem drummer Pat Mahoney and Run-Roc labelhead Dennis McNany — recently released their self-titled debut album on DFA. Mahoney’s deep-throated vocals suit the oppressive electro-disco that McNany has cooked up in the studio. The video for album track “The Who’s Who Of Who Cares” builds much like the song: slowly, then all at once. It starts out with some hands sculpting a face out of clay that starts to come together as the song progresses. First you just see a blob, then more definition continues to be added until there’s a nose and a mouth, and by the end of the video it’s creepily realistic. And then the sculpture is melted away. Watch the video below.


Mother Love Bone 7-inch featuring two unreleased songs due out for RSD Black Friday
Oct 21, 2014 9:40am | Cosequence Of Sound

One of the earliest and shortest-lived successes of the late-’80s Seattle grunge scene will receive a special release for Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. On November 28th, Mother Love Bone will see a 7-inch single featuring two never-before-released songs come out from Republic Records.

The A-side of the vinyl features a previously unreleased studio-recorded cover of “Hold Your Head Up”, a song from the 1972 album All Together Now from Rod Argent of The Zombies’ side project Argent. The B-side, meanwhile, is in the form of an alternate take of “Holy Roller” from Mother Love Bone’s only album, Apple.

(Read: The Top 10 Grunge Albums of the 90s)

The release is listed as an RSD Exclusive Release, so post-Thanksgiving Friday will be your only chance to snag the limited release.

Below, listen to “Holy Roller” as it was originally released.

Ariel Pink Responds To Misogyny Charges: Everybodys A Victim Except For Small, White, Nice Guys
Oct 21, 2014 9:36am | StereoGum

Ariel Pink is a troll. We know this. He’s been pushing that side of his persona to complete saturation lately, claiming to love the Westboro Baptist Church and blasting Madonna’s career while claiming that Madonna wants to work with him. And now Pink is saying things in interviews about how people online are targeting him with misogyny charges. This, too, is trolling.
