Sleater-Kinney cement 2014 as the year of the Very Good Comeback
Oct 20, 2014 11:52am | Chart Attack

Washington punk group Sleater-Kinney disbanded in 2005. Since then, the short film I made in high school using their song "The Fox" from their last album The Woods has only grown in poignancy. Today, the band announced a new album No Cities To Love will be released in January on their old home Sub Pop, with a tour to follow (dates here with more to come).

The band's members have been busy making things you enjoy since the initial breakup. Carrie Brownstein started her sketch comedy show Portlandia with Fred Armisen, and another now-defunct band Wild Flag with Janet Weiss (who also plays in Quasi). Corin Tucker also continued playing loud in her Corin Tucker Band. But word got out last week that their career-retrospective box set Start Together would contain a hint to their reunion: a new 7" containing "Bury Our Friends." You can hear it below in a lyric video directed by and starring Miranda July as Unfrozen Cavewoman Yuppie.

Sleater-Kinney's new album No Cities To Love is out January 20 via Sub Pop. Pre-order it here.

Dirt Dress 12 Pictures (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 20, 2014 11:50am | StereoGum

L.A.-based trio Dirt Dress will soon release a new EP, Revelations, and today they share a track from that EP, “Twelve Pictures.” Compared to the band’s 2012 EP, Donde La Vida No Vale Nada, “Twelve Pictures” is a bit more upbeat, with a simple guitar melody and a brief saxophone interlude. The track marches forward with a peppy feel and a lo-fi sound. Listen.

Song : Ariel Pink : Black Ballerina
Oct 20, 2014 11:47am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Ariel Pink follows up “Put Your Number In My Phone” with this fantastic new cut “Black Ballerina”. It holds that quintessential Ariel Pink quirkiness. While it just dropped, we know this one is going to stick in the rotation for a while. It might be our favorite from him since “Round and Round”. The song will appear on his upcoming new double-LP, pom pom, out on November 18th via 4AD. Listen below.


Pianos Become the Teeth streaming 'Keep You' LP (listen)
Oct 20, 2014 11:47am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Pianos Become the Teeth already released "Late Lives" and "Repine" off their new scream-less album, Keep You (due 10/28 via Epitaph), and they've now made the whole thing available to stream over at Pitchfork. Here's a bit of what we've already said about the record:

Though the stylistic change may be jarring to some, it's also resulted in some of their best material yet. Turns out vocalist Kyle Durfey has an excellent singing voice, one that's powerful, passionate and sounds great at the forefront of their sound.
If you've dug either of the two singles, the full thing lives up and giving it a listen is highly recommended.

Pianos will be on tour soon, hitting NYC on their run with Frameworks and Gates on October 29 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still available.

All dates are listed, with streams of the two singles, below...

The New Lines & DC band Sansyou share collaborative single, playing NYC Halloween week show together (dates)
Oct 20, 2014 11:42am | Brooklyn Vegan

The New Lines (photo by Jenn di Donna)

You never know where inspiration may strike. The New Lines and DC band Sansyou have a new collaborative single, "Gowanus Canal Field Inspection," which was a direct result of an actual visit to the titular Brooklyn body of water by Sansyou's David Nicholas, who shared his thoughts on it with The New Lines' Hewson Chen. Conversation, lyrics and music flowed like dirty water and here we have it, a jangly two-minute pop number which premieres in this post. Stream it below.

The New Lines and Sansyou will play NYC on October 27 at Radio Bushwick, a Halloween show also featuring Winkie and Prima Primo. Then in December, The New Lines will head out with Dead Leaf Echo for a weekend tour that includes stops in Philadelphia and DC. All dates are listed, along with the new single stream, below...

Twin Peaks Making Breakfast Video
Oct 20, 2014 11:38am | StereoGum

As a rule, the Chicago garage rockers Twin Peaks (who should really consider changing their name now that the real Twin Peaks is coming back) make really good music videos. Their clips for “Flavor” and “I Found A New Way” are both dumb, sloppy fun, and even something as minimal as their new “Making Breakfast” video turns out to be way more watchable than it should be. Singer/guitarist Clay Frankel spends the entire video either living with egg mashed into his hair, which seems like a terrible way to live, or cooking breakfast on an outdoor grill, which seems like an amazing way to live. Past collaborator Ryan Ohm directs. Watch it below.

Song : Suixx : Hi
Oct 20, 2014 11:33am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Suixx is the moniker taken by Sydney’s Sarah Jullienne. Her latest song, titled “Hi”, is what we imagine it would sound like if Tame Impala and Beach House hooked up and mixed their sonic aesthetics. The song is just another example on how Australia has been killing it lately with its musical exports. Expect it to appear on her forthcoming debut EP slated sometime in the very near future, possibly before the end of the year. Stream below.

Q&A: Iceage On Snakes In The Music Business, Violence At Shows, And Plowing Into The Field Of Love
Oct 20, 2014 11:17am | StereoGum

Iceage are currently trekking across the United States (and a bit of Canada) in support of their excellent new album, Plowing Into the Field of Love. The album, the band’s third, shows them moving away from the brutish punk pummel of their first two albums and expanding their sonic palette to include things like mandolins, violas, and discernible lyrics. Even though Plowing isn’t necessarily a feel-good record (or even a pop record, as some have called it), it does feel like a deliberate step forward for the band and a move toward a kind of more accessible songwriting. Tracks like “Abundant Living” and “The Lord’s Favorite” have more in common with old school country music than hardcore, and Iceage’s videos flirt with a kind of ambiguous sexuality and, dare it be said, amorousness that would have been hard to imagine if you’d seen the band play live a couple of years ago. And while there was definitely something to be said for the punishing nature of New Brigade, there’s something equally compelling about frontman Elias Bender Rønnenfelt stepping out of the shadows and commanding the listener to, “Come here and be gorgeous for me now.”

Stream Medicine Home Everywhere
Oct 20, 2014 11:13am | StereoGum

Last year, the classic lineup of the early-’90s dreampop trio Medicine reunited and released To The Happy Few, their first album since 1995. The reunion has continued, and Medicine already have a follow-up album coming out next week. We’ve already posted the songs “Turning” and “Move Along – Down The Road“, and now the band’s entire new album Home Everywhere is streaming at NPR.

Home Everywhere is out 10/28 on Captured Tracks.





The Greatest Hoax Opus No. 21 (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 20, 2014 11:11am | StereoGum

Washington, DC pianist Taylor Jordan studied composition at the University of North Texas before taking a job as a climate scientist for the government. In his free time, he still writes gorgeous ambient classical music under the name the Greatest Hoax, and it’s a good thing he does. The way “Opus No. 21″ builds towering emotional catharsis out of electro-organic foundations reminds me of Sigur Rós circa ( ) or the Flaming Lips’ Soft Bulletin/Yoshimi-era instrumentals, though this music is far more restrained and intimate than that. It’s something you should definitely hear, so hear it below.

Stream: Nick Oliveris new album Leave Me Alone
Oct 20, 2014 11:05am | Cosequence Of Sound

Nick Oliveris sophomore solo album, Leave Me Alone, arrive October 28th via Schnitzel Records. In anticipation, the album is streaming in full below.

The former Queens of the Stone Age/Kyuss member played all the instruments on the nine-track effort himself. Oliveri did, however, enlist a bevy of guest collaborators, including Phil Campbell of Motörhead, Dean Ween, Bruno Fevery of Kyuss Lives!, and multiple appearances from Marc Diamond and Blag Dahlia of Dwarves.

Speaking with Antiquiet about the work he put into the record, Oliveri admitted, “I never played drums on a record before, so it was my first time doing that. I kinda wrote the songs on drums, humming parts from my head, then added guitar parts to them. That way, every song in it is exactly how I heard it in my head.” He went on to say the record is “short and sweet, but I like records like that, it gets to the point, moves around a bit, and then its over.”

In the same interview, Oliveri addressed the song “Robot Man”, which is about his 2011 arrest following a confrontation with a S.W.A.T. team. “I wrote that song for [the Hollywood Police] and I want them to hear it. They were all very nice to me, in that situation, actually worried about my well-being, and they didnt have to be … Phil Campbell [from Motörhead] plays lead on it, which really makes the song something else. I liked it a...

Oct 20, 2014 10:56am | My Old Kentucky Blog

FKA Twigs is an artist in the truest since, not only in music, but also using visuals and dancing as an outlet. Today, she revealed a new concept film titled #throughglass that sees her drawing inspiration from choreography inspirations shes searched for using Google Glass, also using the device in filming. It is soundtracked using reworked versions of her songs “Video Girl” and “Glass & Patron”. Calling it captivating would be an understatement. Watch below.
