Stream Shlohmos menacing Dark Red LP
Mar 31, 2015 10:22am | Fact Magazine
The WEDIDIT boss returns.
Shlohmo will release his new album Dark Red on April 7 via True Panther and his WEDIDIT imprint. Until then, the New York Times is streaming the album via Press Play.
The L.A. talent describes the album as if Electric Wizard tried to make an R&B record, or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx. The cover art and tracklist are below.

Du Blonde Mind Is On My Mind (Feat. Samuel T. Herring)
Mar 31, 2015 10:21am | StereoGum
If you can get Future Islands front-growler Samuel T. Herring to sing on your record, you should absolutely do that. Lately, people seem to be figuring that out. A few weeks ago, Herring showed up alongside Earl Sweatshirt to sing the hook on Gangrene's "Play It Cool." Now, Herring has teamed up with Du Blonde, the British singer-songwriter formerly known as Beth Jeans Houghton. Herring shows up near the end of "Mind Is On My Mind," a cluttered and skittering weird-pop song from the forthcoming album Welcome Back To Milk. It is a very strange song, and he sounds great on it. Below, listen to the track and read a statement about it from Du Blonde.
Nocturnal Sunshine Take Me There Video
Mar 31, 2015 10:15am | StereoGum
Maya Jane Coles has been quietly ruling the international electronic underground music scene for years now, steadily building a following and biding her time. Since Nicki Minaj, Drake and Lil Wayne's radio-dominating hit "Truffle Butter" sampled Coles' "What They Say," what better time for her to focus on building a stateside reputation? Donning the moniker Nocturnal Sunshine, she released the debut single from "Take Me There" a few weeks ago and dropped a video to accompany it today. Directed by The Fashtons, the visuals depict the British-Japanese producer in a series of enveloping veils, poses and sheets that reflect the song's moody twists and turns. Watch it below.
Stream Fred Thomas All Are Saved (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 31, 2015 10:08am | StereoGum
Listening to Fred Thomas' All Are Saved often feels like traveling down the path of most resistance. Thoughts are thought and instantly contradicted, revelations made and then backtracked -- it's a beautiful mess of ideas and doubts, bold declarations and crippling neuroses. There is no easy way out, there are no simple answers. It is confessional in the truest sense, a look inside of a mind that lives and breathes and regrets and is never sure of exactly what to say. His musings are fodder for analysis, specific couplets begging to be treasured. It's a record that's most rewarding when you sit down and allow yourself to pore over the lyrics, a 40-minute respite from flicking between a dozen tabs on the internet and absorbing things piecemeal. In many ways, All Are Saved is a writer's record, a gift to look over every prickly line and clever turn of phrase. But above all, it's an overwhelmingly human record, one that never strays too far from its heart.

Baltimore's Diamond Youth already have a few solid EPs out, including 2013's Orange and 2014's Shake, and they're now ready to release their first full length. It's called Nothing Matters and will be out on May 19 via Topshelf (pre-order). Like a handful of their previous tracks, new single "Thought I Had It Right" sounds like Queens of the Stone Age going power pop, and it suits them here as well as it does on the best tracks on their EPs. Check it out -- the song premieres below.
Diamond Youth also have a BrooklynVegan-presented tour coming up with headliners Superheaven and openers Rozwell Kid. It hits NYC on May 15 at The Studio at Webster Hall, and tickets for that show are still available. Diamond Youth were also added to NJ's Skate & Surf (day after Webster), which their tourmates play as well.
Full tour schedule, the new song, and album artwork, below...

Lower Dens takeover: Saties Gnossienne #4
Mar 31, 2015 10:00am | Gorilla Vs Bear
Escape from Evil, for me, is our most spiritual album, and one of its themes is coming to a place of acceptance of one’s own self-perpetuating pain, and finding new tools over the course of life that enables one to do so. This piece held me in its loving arms during a period in which nothing else offered respite, it is a safe space for anyone who cannot sleep. — Geoff Graham, Lower Dens

My Morning Jacket has offered a new preview of their forthcoming seventh studio album, The Waterfall. Following the high-flying lead single “Big Decisions”, the Louisville rockers opt for a more slow-burning haunter in “Spring (Among the Living)”. Clocking in at a hearty six minutes, it features some truly gnarly electric licks and coyote-like howls.
Listen in below via the visualizer.
The Waterfall hits stores on May 4th through ATO/Capitol Records. In support, the band — one of the best festival headliners of the year — will embark on a massive world tour.

Stream Shlohmo Dark Red
Mar 31, 2015 9:51am | StereoGum
The L.A. bass-music producer Shlohmo makes gooey, melodic music that slinks and throbs in some darkly compelling ways. Last year, he teamed up with the great R&B singer Jeremih for the enjoyable-as-hell No More EP. Next week, he'll release his new solo instrumental album Dark Red. We've posted the early tracks "Emerge From Smoke," "Buried," and "Beams," and now you can stream the whole thing at The New York Times. Dark Red is out 4/7 via True Panther/WeDidIt.

Swedish post-hardcore greats Refused briefly reunited in 2012, said the reunion was over, but then announced festival dates this year and also have hinted at a new album. Now they announced a run of US club dates, including two in NYC.
The tour has them playing 500-ish cap venues, which are much smaller than the last tour's Terminal 5 show and the Williamsburg Park show that was cancelled (but not smaller than the Europa show they played to make up for the cancellation). The tour stops in NYC on June 3 at Bowery Ballroom and June 4 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (4/3) at noon.
All dates are listed below...

Tropics takes the Blame in paint-splattered video
Mar 31, 2015 9:46am | Fact Magazine
The former Planet Mu man shares a heartbroken new video.
Tropics continued his evolution into an electronic pop troubadour on this year’s Rapture LP. Now, he’s shared a video for sullen standout ‘Blame’, which revels in slow motion and splattered paint. “I wanted to collaborate with [director] Chloe Hayward in exploring an idea of bringing to life the artwork for ‘Blame’ and Rapture,” he writes. “We also had fun painting and smashing things.” Rapture is out now via Innovative Leisure.

Inheaven Regeneration Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 31, 2015 9:41am | StereoGum
"Regeneration" is the first thing we've heard from the South East London band Inheaven, and the song itself contains just about all we know about them. It's a toss-up between delicately-spun female vocals, brash, zealous guitar noise and a half-shout of a chorus that wails against aging, generations (saw that one coming, right?) and friendships. There's plenty of angst but no real animosity. Today we're premiering the video for the track, and it's a post-modern blur of newspaper headlines, handwritten notes, faded landscapes and head-banging teens -- who may or may not be Inheaven members as they've chosen to go the anonymous route for now. "Regeneration" watches like a home video run through a time machine that's set to pull up every scene of rebellion and aggression from the last half a century. Watch it below.
Led Zeppelin Brandy & Coke (Trampled Under Foot) Interactive Video
Mar 31, 2015 9:41am | StereoGum
Led Zeppelin are in the midst of a massive reissue project, and that means we're probably going to be getting all sorts of unearthed rarities and early versions of tracks. "Brandy & Coke" is just that -- an early version of "Trampled Under Foot" that they band shared on their website back in February. (Similarly, they shared an alternative version of "The Rain Song" last September).
Upset 76 EP (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 31, 2015 9:38am | StereoGum
Upset is something of a supergroup at this point. Previously, vocalist/guitarist Ali Koehler played drums in Vivian Girls and Best Coast, and Upset's current drummer, Patty Schemel, was formerly Hole's percussionist. Bass player Rachel Gagliardi is also in Slutever, and guitarist Lauren Freeman is a member of Long Beach pop punk garage outfit Benny The Jet Rodriguez (formerly Jennifer Prince of La Sera was part of the group). Listening to Upset drives all these other bands completely out of your mind, though, with their smattering of pop-punk energy and anxiety-addled rock riffs.

Mar 31, 2015 9:37am | Fact Magazine
A bundle of excellent DJs join the line-up for the Croatian seaside party.
Stop Making Sense has expanded its 2015 bill and revealed who’ll be playing its boat parties on the Adriatic Sea this July.

The Rolling Stones will be back on the road this summer for what they're calling the Zip Code tour. It will feature a stage that extends deep into the audience, new state-of-the-art video screens and a setlist heavy on their most famous songs. "We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer," Mick Jagger said in a press release. "We are looking forward to being back onstage and playing your favorite songs." You can watch a tour announcement video below.
The 15 dates announced for the Zip Code tour do not include a NYC-area show -- Buffalo and Pittsburgh are about as close as it gets -- but tickets for all US shows go on sale April 13 (the Quebec date goes on sale April 11).
In other news, the band's 1971 album Sticky Fingers is being reissued on May 26 in a variety of formats. The fanciest of those is a "super deluxe" box set that includes a bonus CD featuring previously unreleased alternate takes and live performances, a hardback book and more. Details on all the different versions that will be available are here.
