Meyhem Lauren & Buckwild Silk Shirts & Yellow Gold
Apr 16, 2014 3:18pm | StereoGum

The Queens rap bruiser Meyhem Lauren is probably best-known as an Action Bronson associate, but he’s landed in the Mixtape Of The Week column twice, for 2012′s Respect The Fly Shit and Mandatory Brunch Meetings. And now he’s prepping the awesomely titled Silk Pyramids, a collaborative EP with the veteran New York rap producer Buckwild. The first single is called “Silk Shirts & Yellow Gold,” and it’s a tough, no-bullshit example of classicist hard-nosed New York rap. Listen below.

Pharrell / Future Islands / Ty Segall / mean girls

Watching Ty Segall at the Outdoor Theatre to kick off my Saturday drove home a 2014 Coachella reality: the relative lack of noisy, guitar-driven bands. While the bill is loaded with synthy, electronic-leaning indie types, traditional rock acts are few and far between this year. As if to illustrate the point, late in his gloriously loud and raucous set, Segall covered "Mötörhead" by Mötörhead, one of a handful of truly heavy bands at the fest.

...I arrived 20 minutes early Saturday night [for the Pixies], just in case, but while the Mojave eventually filled and then some, things never got ugly. As for the set itself, I doubt I'll ever adjust to seeing Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering on a stage without Kim Deal, but the new-look Pixies produced a quality set nonetheless, bashing out extra-ferocious versions of "Gouge Away," "Nimrod's Son," "Crackity Jones" and more. [Las Vegas Weekly]

Coachella 2014 recently wrapped up its first of two weekends. You already saw pictures of day 1, and we've got a set of day 2 pics in this post, including shots of Pet Shop Boys, Pharrell, Queens of the Stone Age, Pixies, Fatboy Slim, Lorde, Future Islands, Warpaint, Julian Casablancas, Ty Segall, Graveyard, Foxygen, Laura Mvula and more.

Of course there's...

Listen: Buzz Osbornes new song Drunken Baby
Apr 16, 2014 3:10pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne has unveiled the second track from his debut solo album, the all-acoustic This Machine Kills Artists, due out June 3rd via Ipecac Recordings. Having established his own unique genre of molk (metal + folk) with “Dark Brown Teeth”, Osborne emphasizes more of the metal side with “Drunken Baby”.

Here, Osborne proves that volume and dissonance are merely sidearms; his true weapon, however, is that voice of his, a menacing, occasionally demonic boom he uses to instill a sense of primal fear and uncertainty. That, and whatever deep, dark emotional abyss he draws upon with truly lethal effectiveness.

This Machine Kills Artists Tracklist:
01. Dark Brown Teeth
02. Rough Democracy
03. Laid Back Walking

Michael Shannon, Natasha Lyonne, and the 'Broad City' stars appearing at 'The Kevin Corrigan Show' in Brooklyn this week
Apr 16, 2014 3:05pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Klaus Kinski

Holy smokes people. Several times now I have tried to hip you l'il pups to Brooklyn's new and completely dominating series called "The Talk Show Series Presents..." which takes place, sporadically, in the back room of Williamsburg bar Over the Eight. The series is a talk-show formatted live show featuring a revolving cast of hosts and guests. The past few episodes have been hosted by famous awesome actor Kevin Corrigan and he has delivered such an unbelievable roster of high-end talent to that teeny tiny little room that they now need an ambulance on-site during the shows because people lose control of their bowels and sometimes faint or even drop dead from excitement.

And now, the next, star-studded, holy-shit-gasp inducing Talk Show Series Presents: The Kevin Corrigan Show is upon us and sweet baby Jeebus it's a whopper! Thursday (April 17), Talk Show Series will feature Michael Shannon, Nathasha Lyonne, as well as Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson from the wildly and justifiably popular and groundbreaking series Broad City. The show is at 9 PM on the dot, and the show is FREE. Get there early because the place only holds about 30 people; 27 if I attend because I am a lard ass and take up hella more...

Watch Ty Segall Debut Three Songs & Cover Motörhead At Coachella
Apr 16, 2014 2:58pm | StereoGum

Ty Segall played Coachella last week and worked in something old, something new, and something Motörhead. The first part of his set touched on his Album Of The Week-honored Slaughterhouse, then moved into a trio of new songs (“Green Belly,” “Tall Man Skinny Lady,” and “Feel,” according to the setlist), before landing on a cover of “Motörhead” by Motörhead. Watch the entire performance below.


Lykke Li Gunshot
Apr 16, 2014 2:46pm | StereoGum

I Never Learn, the new album from the Swede-pop goddess Lykke Li, looms, and she’s already shared two songs, the twin dirges “Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone” and “No Rest For The Wicked.” “Gunshot,” the third song she’s shared from the album, is still something of a ballad, but it’s more of a midtempo ’80s power-ballad type of thing, with cavernous drums and a chorus that will rip you right open and steal your soul. It rivals Twin Shadow’s “To The Top” as the best Phil Collins song I’ve heard this week, and it’s streaming at this site, which also features the song’s lyrics (via Pitchfork).

I Never Learn is out 5/6 via LL/Atlantic.

ESSENTIAL ALBUMS: Odonis Odonis bandleader Dean Tzenos leads a crash course in industrial
Apr 16, 2014 2:42pm | Chart Attack
Our favourite artists dig up five records that they consider Essential by any definition they like. This week, Odonis Odonis leader Dean Tzenos breaks down the "Hard Boiled" industrial music influences behind the band's fantastic new record.

Dean Tzenos played an accidental joke on himself when he labelled the music on his first Odonis Odonis record, 2011's Hollandaze, "industrial surfgaze." Since then, just about every review comes affixed with the terminally catchy subgenre tag. But even though it's become their albatross, "industrial surfgaze" is also fairly accurate. Their new album Hard Boiled Soft Boiled cordons the two sides of their sound into two distinct segments: the heavy industrial-influenced Hard Boiled side and the dreamy, shoegazey Soft Boiled side.

"The whole idea, even from the beginning of the project, was to treat our albums like mixtapes," says Tzenos. "So I actually found one of the original mixtapes that I had when I was a kid. One of the sides was mostly industrial music, and the other one was bands like My Bloody Valentine, Jesus And Mary Chain, New Order, The Stone Roses and all these shoegaze bands that were starting to come up at the time, like Slowdive. I had that in mind with this album. I wanted to do both ends of the spectrum."

The thing is, maybe its hip now, but for most of my life it was never hip. It was outsider mu...

Infest in Miami, 2013 (more by Kris Alan Carter)

Since reforming after a 22-year hiatus last year, West Coast powerviolence pioneers Infest have been gradually working their way up the East Coast via a series of one-off dates: their first East Coast show was in Miami last March; the band followed it up with an appearance at the Invisible Oranges-sponsored A389 Bash this January, and put in an appearance at Damaged City Fest this past weekend. They will finally put in their first-ever NYC appearance on June 28 at the Wick, with support from Paint It Black, Replica, and Ajax. Tickets are on sale now.

Infest will also be venturing near the East Coast for an August 22 show in Cleveland. Warm up for the NYC date with their now-classic Live At KXLU session below...

Listen: Le Butcherettes share three songs from their new album Cry Is for the Flies
Apr 16, 2014 2:40pm | Cosequence Of Sound

As we noted earlier this week, Le Butcherettes  the Mexican garage rock outfit led by Bosnian Rainbows and Kimono Kult member Teri Gender Bender  will soon return with a new album, Cry Is for the Flies. Now, more details of the LP have emerged: it’s officially due out May 15th and is proceeded by three singles, “Burn the Scab”, “Your Weakness Gives Me Life”, and the previously released “Demon Stuck in Your Eye”. Stream all three, plus a bonus track titled “Blackhead”, below.

Whereas “Demon” was highlighted by buzz-sawing guitars, “Burn the Scab” is driven by Teri’s manic howling, and “Your Weakness” finds strength in its explosive, reach-for-the-skies chorus. Meanwhile, the rattling hypnotics of “Blackhead” suggest even Le Bucherettes’ non-singles pack a mean, mean punch.

An accompanying message on the group’s Bandcamp notes: “Purchase the 3 Le Butcherettes singles from their upcoming album, Cry Is for the Flies, and get the full album for free on May 1st, two weeks prior to its May 15th release. Get the bonus track, “Blackhead”, with your purchase for immediate download.”

Cry Is for the Flies will be issued via Omar Rodríguez-López’s label/production company Nadie Sound Inc. Pre-orders are ongoing.

Watch: Yuck Southern Skies Video
Apr 16, 2014 2:40pm | CMJ

Today, shoegaze-y alt-rockers Yuck shared a dreamy video for Southern Skies, the title track off their new EP, released this week. The EP provided fans with some airier, unexpected sounds from the band, and Southern Skies is no exception. Its super mellow, and the video matches the track seamlessly. An extended shot of a building is layered with nearly translucent moving images of cars and a Ferris wheel. It’s a relaxing meditation on nature and the passage of time…or something. So sit back in your chair and watch the video below.

The post Watch: Yuck – “Southern Skies” Video appeared first on CMJ.

Listen: Lykke Lis new song Gunshot
Apr 16, 2014 2:31pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Lykke Li has unveiled “Gunshot”, the second single from her upcoming third studio album, I Never Learn, due out May 5th via LL/Atlantic Records. Similar to last month’s “No Rest For The Wicked”, Li pairs emotionally-gripping lyrics with surprisingly bombastic musical accompaniment. However, as opposed to simply focusing her sorrow inward, keeping it buried within her own soul, she’s now striving for personal catharsis, unearthing layers of anguish and deep-seated regret over a somewhat danceable medley of arena-rock guitars and dusty blues piano. Listen to the song here.

For more sounds, check out the teaser track “Love Me Like Im Not Made of Stone” and “Du är den ende”, written specifically for Swedish crime thriller Tommy.

I Never Learn Tracklist:
01. I Never Learn
02. No Rest for the Wicked
03. Just Like a Dream
04. Silverline
05. Gunshot
06. Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone
07. Never Gonna Love Again
08. Heart of Steel
09. Sleeping Alone

Arm Candy released an LP, playing shows w/ Perfect Pussy, Priests, Downtown Boys, Chumped & more (dates & streams)
Apr 16, 2014 2:26pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Arm Candy

Brooklyn lo-fi punk trio Arm Candy recently put out their debut album, The Right to Bear Arm Candy, with six original tracks plus a cover of "What Kind of Monster Are You" by all-female '90s Dischord trio Slant 6. If you're a fan of the band they chose to cover, you might dig this too, and you can check it out by streaming it below. It's also downloadable (name your price) at bandcamp.

Arm Candy have been playing a good deal of local shows lately (maybe you caught them with Priests and Noun or with SVPER and Palehound), and they'll continue to do so. Three of those shows are this weekend, including the previously discussed Death by Audio (4/18) stop of the Priests / Good Throb tour, which also includes Brooklyn's Household.

Then on Saturday (4/19) they play the free WBAR-B-Q at Barnard College with Inc. Ka, LVL UP and more. Later that night they'll play a midnight show at Silent Barn with Syracuse noise punks Perfect Pussy and multiple DJs. More info on Facebook.

They also play another show on May 29 at Shea Stadium with local pop punks Chumped, Priests' pals Downtown Boys (following their tour with EMA which hits NYC twice), and Canadian punks TV Freaks.

Lorde meets baseball legend George Brett, the inspiration behind her hit Royals
Apr 16, 2014 2:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

“Royals” may have been the best song of 2013, but only now has the story behind Lordes hit single finally come full circle.

According to the MLB’s Twitter acount, before her Las Vegas show last night, the New Zealand pop star met Kansas City Royals’ iconic third baseman and Hall of Famer George Brett. While Lorde undoubtedly befriends professional athletes and celebrities on a regular basis, the encounter was anything but a standard meet-and-greet.

If you’ll recall, last year it was revealed that “Royals” the single that launched Lorde’s career and earned her a Grammy was inspired by a 1976 photo of Brett (seen below).

“I had this image from the National Geographic of this dude just signing baseballs,” she told VH1 back in September. “He was a baseball player and his shirt said, Royals’. It was just that word. Its really cool.”

Brett had previously been invited to Lorde’s concert in Kansas City, but scheduling conflicts kept them from actually meeting face to face. He instead sent her a signed jersey that also bore the endearing message, “Lorde, you are Royal to me.” Though I’m admittedly not a huge sports fan, even **I** would’ve loved to have been a fly on the wall in the room where both baseball and pop music’s royalty came together.
