Dope Body releasing a new LP, touring (3 NYC shows total)
Jul 23, 2014 9:26am | Brooklyn Vegan

Baltimore's Dope Body have announced they'll follow 2012's Natural History with a new album, Lifer, on October 21 via Drag City. Its first single, "Hired Gun," is a punk rager filled with noise guitar heroics that you should definitely play loud. Turn up and do so below.
We already knew Dope Body are coming to NYC for a free show on August 29 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with Single Mothers, Ed Schrader's Music Beat and Vulture Shit (that is a killer lineup), and they've since scheduled a full tour for this October. That tour brings them back to NYC on 10/16 at The Studio at Webster Hall and 10/17 at Palisades. No openers announced for those shows yet. Tickets for Webster and Palisades are on sale now.
All dates are listed, with the new song stream, below...

Watch The Only Known Live Footage Of Pre-Slint Band Squirrel Bait
Jul 23, 2014 9:23am | StereoGum
One of the best qualities of Breadcrumb Trail — Lance Bangs’ fantastic documentary on Slint, released earlier this year — is the wealth of rare footage Bangs’ unearthed, and how naturally it flows into the story. No mention is made of the great effort required to obtain that footage; Bangs simply includes it where it needs to be, and lets it speak for itself. When the film’s focus turns to Squirrel Bait — the pre-Slint band featuring Brian McMahan and Britt Walford (as well as a pre-Gastr Del Sol David Grubbs) — there is naturally some old video of that band playing. However, this was actually the only known live footage of Squirrel Bait, and now label Drag City has made it available to watch online. The clip was shot by David Hintz in 1985 in Newport, Kentucky, and restored by Bangs. It features the band playing the song “Sun God” from their self-titled EP, and offhandedly mentioning another show opening for Big Black — which makes sense, as only a few years later, Steve Albini would help Slint record their debut album, Tweez. Watch it below.
Watch: Pharrell and Miley Cyrus video for Come Get It Bae
Jul 23, 2014 9:22am | Cosequence Of Sound
Between their upcoming Sgt. Peppers covers album, a handful of live appearances, and brand-new matching tattoos, Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips have all but been inseparable in 2014. But lest we forget Cyrus had another successful collaboration earlier this year, joining forces with Pharrell Williams for the G I R L standout “Come Get It Bae”.
Today, the pair reconvene for the tracks accompanying video, in which Luis Cerveró takes us inside a swanky dance tryout inside a posh studio. Pharrell oversees the process and even mans the camera, while Cyrus shows up briefly to execute her own patented dance moves. It’s nothing on the level of Pharrell’s video for “Happy”, but at least Pharrell has changed up his head gear.
Firecracker Recordings boss to open vinyl record shop in Edinburgh
Jul 23, 2014 9:20am | Fact Magazine
Another vinyl specialist set to open north of the border.
Lindsay Todd, the man behind oddball house and techno label Firecracker Recordings, is set to open a new record shop in Edinburgh specialising in leftfield and hard-to-find vinyl. Open to the public over the duration of the Edinburgh Festival next month, the shop will then become an appointment-only business.
As RA reports, Todd revealed that he would be stocking independent labels like Honest Jons, The Trilogy Tapes, Blackest Ever Black, Jazzman and RVNG, as well as even more niche ventures like Folklore Tapes, Mood Hut, Sex Tags Mania, Public Possession, Invisible City Editions, Art Yard, Trunk and Music From Memory. Alongside all the new releases, The Living Mountain will also stock a range of rare vinyl from jazz to new age and field recordings.
The shop will also stock a bunch of cassettes, CDs and books as well as hosting regular exhibitions and in-store events, with the first exhibition set feature performances of musique concrète and experimental recordings from the Heart Fine Art archive.
The Living Mountain is only the latest in a string of record shop openings across the UK in the last few months, with Rough Trade setting up in Nottingham, Sister Ray expanding in London and new shops springing up in Peckham and Hoxton. And if you fancy hopp...
Software to release debut album by New York musician/visual artist Tallesen, Stills Lit Through
Jul 23, 2014 9:18am | Fact Magazine
The Hudson Valley’s Cayman “Tallesen” Johnson joins his audio and visual practices on his first, comprehensive body of work.
Daniel Lopatin’s Software imprint has had a busy 2014, releasing music by Slava, Sculpture, Thug Entrancer and Napolian, and signing buzzy Baton Rouge producer Suicideyear.
Joining that list is Tallesen, who describes his debut album Stills Lit Through as a response to the “continuous flexibility of the physical setting by the additive of sound.” Also a visual artist, Johnson paints watercolor melodies reminiscent of Autechre and Brian Eno, and press materials describe Stills as an exploration of his “enigmatic, sensual world-building music.”
Stills Lit Through is available October 7 via Software on LP, CD and digital formats. Watch the video for lead track ‘Strike Silver, Love Green’ below; the album’s cover art and tracklist follow.

Stream Peter Van Hoesen and Yves De Meys new Sendai EP Monad XVIII
Jul 23, 2014 9:17am | Fact Magazine
Sendai is the collaborative moniker of Belgian producers Yves De Mey and Peter Van Hoesen.
Both are techno mainstays – De Mey contributed to the sadly defunct Sandwell District label, and Van Hoesen has been steadily building his reputation – releasing on Tresor and other labels – for some time now, so the very concept of a collaboration is pretty exciting. Since 2012 they’ve been issuing a stream of tight, unpredictable electronic experiments, and this new EP might be the best yet.
Rather than go the predictable route and bundle together four techno pounders, on Monad XVIII (part of the Stroboscopic Artefacts Monad series) De Mey and Van Hoesen have crafted a record more in common with latter day Autechre than with Ben Klock. It’s epic stuff, packed to the gills with expertly processed sounds, booming bass and complex, slithering rhythms – techno explorers take note, this is how it’s done.
Monad XVIII will be released on July 28 via Stroboscopic Artefacts.

Silent album nets $20,000 in Spotify royalties
Jul 23, 2014 8:50am | Fact Magazine
Silence is a golden cheque.
LA groovers Vulfpeck hit upon a cunning get-rich-quick scheme earlier this year when they released an album of 10 silent tracks on Spotify and instructed fans to play them on repeat overnight. The resulting payouts, they said, would fund a tour that would be free to attend.
As their canny idea gained traction in the press, Vulfpeck’s play counts rocketed, until Spotify (who took it in remarkably good humour, to be fair to the Swedes) finally pulled the album. Still, during its seven weeks on the streaming service, Sleepify racked up around 5.5 million plays, as Billboard reports.
Initially the funk band weren’t too sure if those plays would be honoured with a cheque, but now a bumper payout has arrived and Vulfpeck are getting on with booking that U.S. tour, hoping to play in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and their former hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan.
With payouts of between $0.0030 and $0.0038 per play, Vulfpecks final payout from Spotify was $19,655.56, and keyboardist Jack Stratton say the band is expecting another $0.0002 per stream for copyright payouts, totalling about $1,100.
Vulfpeck’s rule-bending approach to the Spotify game is in stark contrast to refuseniks like Thom Yorke, of course, who has railed against the streaming service as the last desperate fart of a dying corpse...

Ladada Coin Toss (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 23, 2014 8:42am | StereoGum
Ladada is Josiah Schlater, a Virginia Beach musician who used to play with the mall-punk heroes Mae among other bands. Now he’s doing his own thing, and that thing is whimsical lo-fi garage pop recorded in a storage unit. “Coin Toss,” from Ladada’s forthcoming self-titled EP, is rock ’n’ roll fun that reminds me of the ’60s crossed with the ’90s, delivered with an immediacy that feels like right now. Listen below.
Boyd Shropshire (Kurt Vile, Human Television) releasing new solo album (stream it), playing NYC release show
Jul 23, 2014 8:40am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Boyd Shropshire has been playing in Philly bands for years. You may remember him from mid-'00s indie rockers Human Television and he's also spent time with Kurt Vile & the Violators. Shropshire will release his second solo album, Victory Weather, next week (7/29) via Wonderland Archives. As you might expect from a former Vile associate, it's hazy, lazy and quite lovely. You can listen to the whole thing right now -- we're premiering a stream of the whole album in this post.
There will be a NYC release party on August 5 at Union Pool. Jess Williamson and Matt Bauer are also on the bill with Boyd. No advance tickets, $8 at the door.

Middle School Metal Band Gets Court Approval For That Huge Record Deal
Jul 23, 2014 8:34am | StereoGum
As previously reported, Unlocking The Truth, a metal trio made up entirely of Brooklyn eighth graders, recently signed a Sony deal that could potentially be worth as much as $1.8 million. For the deal to go through, the members of the band had to get permission from a Manhattan judge. And as the New York Daily News reports, the band got that court approval yesterday, after Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Carol Edmead made sure the boys understood the terms of their deal and couseled them to spend money wisely. She actually told them, “No Porches!” Classic Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Carol Edmead. Actually, Edmead probably doesn’t need to worry about that. Other than a $60,000 advance, the kids in the band won’t make any royalties unless their first album sells a near-impossible 250,000 copies, and they’ll only get that $1.8 million if Sony somehow sticks with them for six albums. Welcome to the music business, kids.
Kyle Hall and Luke Slater descend on Londons secretsundaze this Sunday
Jul 23, 2014 8:29am | Fact Magazine
If you fancy a bit of daytime clubbing this weekend, secretsundaze – as always – has you covered.
This Sunday there’s a corker of a lineup, with Luke Slater heading up proceedings under his L.B. Dub Corp moniker. Slater’s pretty much a national treasure at this point, so it’s hard to overstate the point, but this performance follows his ace Unknown Origin album from late last year on Ostgut Ton, and should be missed at your peril.
Elsewhere, Detroit’s Kyle Hall stops by to show you why his city keeps on killing it with an expert blend of techno, house and disco, live band Paranoid London drop in for a special set, and residents James Priestly and Giles Smith round things off nicely as usual.
