Stream: Mark Lanegan Bands new album Phantom Radio
Oct 16, 2014 3:25pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Mark Lanegan Band will release their new album, Phantom Radio, on October 21st via Vagrant Records. In anticipation, the album is streaming in full below.

The 10-track effort serves as a follow-up to the No Bells On Sunday EP, which hit shelves back in July. According to a press release, Lanegan’s “chief compositional tool on Phantom Radio was his phone specifically an app called Funk Box.” In a statement, he said, “I didnt bother to hook up my 909 and 808 this time, because the app had em. Id write drum parts with it then add music with the synthesizer or the guitar.”

The press release explains that “the album grew organically from these synthetic roots, taking in Marks ongoing love of Krautrock and also an 80s new wave show on Sirius satellite radio, his favored aural companion as he drives around Los Angeles.”

Added Lanegan, “They have a few good shows but the 80s one in particular I like. Thats the music that was happening when I started making music. And although the Trees drew on Nuggets psychedelia, 13th Floor Elevators and Love, we were actually listening to Echo And The Bunnymen, Rain Parade, the Gun Club. A lot of British post-punk. We loved that stuff. I just waited until I was in my late forties before I started ripping it off.”

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.

Sophie Cooper on WOBC

Sophie Coopers Our Aquarius, one of WOBC’s Top 200 adds this week, delivers beautiful, swirling echos of droney folk music. It’s perfect for a grey autumn day, and makes you want to go curl up in front of a fireplace with a glass of wine.

Pet Sun on CFMU

Torontos Pet Sun made it to No. 26 on CFMUs chart this week with their rough-around-the-edges rock ‘n’ roll. Feel Like Im Going Away, their most recent EP, is filled to the brim with fuzzy, hook-filled tunes.

Foo Fighters premiere new single Something From Nothing listen
Oct 16, 2014 3:05pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Foo Fighters have premiered the first single from their new album, Sonic Highways. “Something From Nothing”, recorded in Chicago with producer Steve Albini, is a ferocious, at times even hypnotic, rocker with hints of funk, psychedelia, and Dave Grohls signature monster growl. Im something from nothing! You are my fuse! he barks, before launching into an ear-shattering outro lined with scorching guitar riffs. Listen below.

The song comes just one day before the band’s TV series documenting the making of Sonic Highways hits HBO. It also happens to be right in the middle of their week-long Late Show residency, during which they’ve already shared the stage with Heart, Zac Brown, and Tony Joe White. They’ll remain guests on the program through Friday, the same day they’ll be at Chicagos CubbyBear for a viewing party for the HBO show and a performance. Yeah, it’s been a busy week for Grohl and the gang.

Sonic Highways arrives officially on November 10th via Rockwell Recordings. The band recorded the LP at various studio albums across the country (a process which is documented in the aforementioned HBO series). The album features a number of guest contributors, including Death Cab For Cuties Ben Gibbard, The Eagles Joe Walsh, Cheap Tricks Rick Nielsen, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Foo Fighters Something From Nothing
Oct 16, 2014 3:01pm | StereoGum

Foo Fighters’ upcoming eighth LP, Sonic Highways, seems less like an album and more like a MacGuffin: It was recorded in eight different studios in eight different cities, with musical icons from each city sitting in on each track, respectively. And, of course, that entire process was filmed for an upcoming eight-part HBO documentary series — which is reportedly an extension of Grohl’s 2013 documentary, Sound City. Along with the Foos and their musical guests, the televised Sonic Highway series will feature interviews with people like Dolly Parton, Macklemore, and President Barack Obama. But it IS an album, too! In fact, according to Grohl, it’s the Foos’ “most ambitious album,” although I expect it might be more accurate to call it the band’s most ambitious project: Based on the music we’ve thus far heard — a decontextualized section of “Outside” and now, lead single “Something From Nothing” — it doesn’t exactly sound like Grohl and Co. are trying to deliver their Pet Sounds or OK Computer; it sounds like … the Foo Fighters. As it should! (I’m trying to decide which Foo Fighters album might actually be their “most ambitious”: I think it’s gotta be either their 1995 self-titled debut or its follow-up, 1997′s The Colour And The Shape, both of which seem to me tremendously a...

The Black Keys Patrick Carney Says U2 Devalued Their Music Completely
Oct 16, 2014 3:01pm | StereoGum

Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney has earned something of a reputation for talking shit on his bands’ various peers, from Jack White to Justin Bieber. This time, though, you can understand where he’s coming from. Talking to the Seattle Times recently, Carney discussed U2′s big stunt of sending their album Songs Of Innocence to every iTunes subscriber, saying that the move “devalued their music completely.” He also said that the move “sends a huge mixed message to bands… that are just struggling to get by. I think that they were thinking its super generous of them to do something like that.”

Creepoid touring, playing many CMJ shows w/ Protomartyr, Slingshot Dakota, White Lighters (Brandon of Nothing) & more

Creepoid at MHOW in May (more by Caroline Harrison)

Philly's Creepoid have had a very busy year so far. They put out a full length and an EP, both of which did justice to the shoegaze and slowcore bands of the '90s. They also did a ton of touring, and won us over at their NYC show with Dinosaur Jr. Now even more shows are on the horizon, as they're one of their many bands who will be in NYC for CMJ. Here's what their schedule looks like as of now:

10/22 - Brixton Agency Showcase at Grand Victory (5:45 PM) w/ Angel Dust, Ex-Breathers, Young Statues, UnWed, Palehound, Native America, Teen Death

10/22 City Lights/INSRGNT-[Arts]/T3M Showcase at Acheron w/ Singshot Dakota, Koji, Off & On, Meghann Wright (tickets)

10/24 Inland Empire/Hardly Art Showcase at Death by Audio (10:45 PM) w/ Protomartyr, Love As Laughter, Eaters, special guests

10/25 Graveface Records/Noisey Ghost PR Showcase at Lit Lounge (11:30 PM) w/ Serengeti, Dott, White Lighters, The Marshmallow Ghosts, Cancers, Ugly Kids Club

They've also got a Philly show in the middle of CMJ, and right after CMJ they open for Geoff Rickly's band No Devotion at Glasslands on 10/28 with Ricky Eat Acid and Black Clouds. Tickets for that show are still available. Full list of tour dates (including The Fest) below.

There's other good bands to catch on all of those ...

Track Premiere: Wyland Wait
Oct 16, 2014 2:25pm | CMJ

New Jersey five-piece Wyland have an instantly digestible sound that will only alienate people who dislike the simplicity of a good ol’ pop-rock bender. The band blends suburban angst with city kid confidence—something that shows up all over their upcoming EP, You’re In The World, Get Off Your Feet. Today we’ve got the premiere of the EP’s lead single, Wait. Propped up by some pastoral handclaps, the track stomps and clatters around with headstrong percussion and restless vocals.

Here’s what frontman Ryan Sloan had to say about the song:

Wait was the last song we wrote for our upcoming EP and we couldn’t be more proud of it. The song is about discovering the beauty in being completely lost; a rather cynical concept I suppose. Through the combination of acoustic and electronic elements, I find Wait to be a beautiful representation of who we are.

The band will be playing CMJ Music Marathon at the Bitter End on Tuesday, October 21. Listen to Wait below.

The Week In Pop: The History Of Kesha Vs. Dr. Luke
Oct 16, 2014 2:18pm | StereoGum

When Kesha and Dr. Luke traded lawsuits earlier this week — Kesha alleging a decade of sexual, physical, and verbal abuse, Luke alleging that she made it all up in an attempt to get out of her contract — the rotten core of one of this decade’s most successful pop partnerships was ripped open and exposed for all to see. If she’s telling the truth, this is gross. If he’s telling the truth, this is gross. It’s gross no matter what.

One of the better up-and-coming acts at the 2014 Pop Montreal festival were duo The Muscadettes. Comprised of twin sisters Chantal and Kathleen Ambridge (plus a drummer live), they make super-catchy, riffy rock with shouty choruses and hooks a'plenty. The band currently have a five-song EP out and will release their debut album next year. NYC can catch them next week when they play CMJ with four shows scheduled at present:

October 24 @ Lit Lounge (8:15 PM) | PaperCup showcase
October 24 @ Arlenes Grocery (2:45 AM [yikes]) | M for Montreal
October 25 @ The Shop (1 PM) | PaperCup CMJ day showcase

Nude Beach For You Video
Oct 16, 2014 2:05pm | StereoGum

Ryan Naideau, drummer for the extremely likable Brooklyn power-pop trio Nude Beach, used to work at the Children’s Museum Of The Arts’ summer camp in New York. And in making the video for “For You,” a beaming song from the band’s forthcoming double album 77, he and his band returned to his old place of employment. The kids at the camp put together the song’s video, animating some drawings and building the sets and presumably writing the story, in which the band travels through space to visit a Doggy Nightclub. Watch it below.


Q&A: David DeKeyser, Project Manager, Secretly Group
Oct 16, 2014 2:00pm | CMJ

One week from today is College Day, a day dedicated to special programing for college radio at CMJ Music Marathon 2014. David DeKeyser held a variety of positions at his college station, WZBC, worked as the radio director for Mute and is currently the project manager for Secretly Group. He will be moderating the In The Spotlight panel, a discussion that will focus on what stations do when they leave their studios and reach out to their audience in different ways. We spoke with DeKeyser about the special role that college radio plays in the music industry at large, the difficulties stations can face in trying to reach out to their communities and getting the most out of CMJ.

Can you tell me about your background in radio?
I went to Boston College, a quite conservative Catholic university. I was a bit shellshocked, trying to find somewhere to fit in, and I was drawn into the radio station, WZBC, through some mutual acquaintances. I DJed a weekly show for five years. During those years, I also held a number of board positions, including promotions director, publicity director, music director and for one summer I was the de facto operations director and general manager of the station. I saw all aspects of running and supporting a station, and upon leaving college, I wanted to continue in that field. Through a series of unlikely events, I picked up an internship at Mute with their radio director. As he moved over into Mutes newly formed manage...

Rakta played Nothing Changes, playing Palisades w/ S.H.I.T. on Saturday, opening for Iceage in LA (dates & EP stream)
Oct 16, 2014 1:53pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Brazil's Rakta make ripping punk that incorporates the dark sounds of gothy post-punk and also some of the tripped-out atmospheres of psychedelic rock. They put out a self titled EP at the tail-end of 2013 which is well worth checking out. You can download it (name your price) at bandcamp and stream it in full below. They've been in the US on a tour that hit NYC at Nothing Changes late last night (10/15) with Merchandise tourmates Ninos Du Brasil, and they'll be hanging around for another NYC show on Saturday (10/18) at Palisades with Toronto's S.H.I.T., plus Survival and Mommy. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Their only other upcoming show that we're currently aware of is opening one of the LA stops on Iceage's tour. All of their dates are listed, with the EP stream, below...
