DFA throwing 'Summer Soiree' at The Wick w/ NYC live debut of Museum of Love ++ DJs Holy Ghost!, Nancy Whang, more
Aug 31, 2014 12:19pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Museum of Love

DFA Records threw one helluva party last year to celebrate their 12th Anniversary. This year they're throwing another party, a smaller scale summer soiree if you will (actually, that's what they're calling it), at The Wick on August 23. It will feature the NYC live debut of Pat Mahony's new band, The Museum of Love, plus DJ sets from Sinkane, Nancy Whang, Holy Ghost, plus a "special guest TBA."  Tickets for the show go on sale Monday (8/4) at noon.

In related news, you can catch Sinkane performing live at The Lot LIC Music & Film Series kickoff show which happens Saturday (8/2) afternoon (3 - 9 PM) and is free.

The Juan Maclean, who have a new album out soon and seem suspiciously absent from the DFA party lineup (along with Shit Robot and you-know-who), will be DJing at Output on August 16 as part of the afternoon "Kaviar Disco Club" party (tickets).

Flyer for the DFA Summer Soiree and Sinkane's The Lot show, plus a couple Museum of Love tracks, below...

Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos is an advocate for mental health awareness and recently was honored with an award for his openness in discussing his own struggles with bipolar disorder and depression. Today, Angelakos took to Twitter to respond to Henry Rollins’ controversial column on suicide, which criticized actor Robin Williams for taking his own life. (Rollins has since apologized for his comments.)

Angelakos made one tweet directed toward Rollins, writing, “Yes, @henryrollins, you made it all so clear for the rest of us. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, especially while the family is grieving.” His other tweets offered advice to individuals struggling with thoughts of suicide and depression. You can read them below.

Listen: How To Dress Wells new song So Easy For Pleasure
Aug 23, 2014 12:04pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Back in June, alt-R&B singer Tom Krell, aka How to Dress Well, released his excellent new album, “What Is This Heart?”, through Weird World/Domino. The albums deluxe edition includes a 28-page photo booklet and a bonus 10-inch featuring two non-album tracks. Of those tracks, we’ve already heard the soulful “Let U Know”; now, “So Easy For Pleasure” is streaming below.

Like its similarly minimalist predecessor, “So Easy For Pleasure” finds Krell crooning falsetto over elegant piano and the haunted echoes of back-up vocals. While his writing has always had a tinge of pained self-awareness, Krell’s deeply forlorn lines about how “its so easy for pleasure to recast itself as pain, to return from which it came” feel especially immediate and vulnerable.

(Read: How To Dress Well: Tentative Affirmations)

The deluxe version of “What Is This Heart?” is available here. In continued support of the album, Krell will be on tour this fall, including festival appearances at Hopscotch and First City. Consult the full schedule here.

Some douchebag rapper leaked Drakes new single with his own verse on it
Aug 23, 2014 11:46am | Cosequence Of Sound

How far is a rapper willing to go for exposure? Unknown MC Erik Allen Battle, aka E BATT, managed to get his hands on Drakes unreleased, unfinished single “View From the 6″, tacked on his own verse to the second half of it, and leaked it online (via Reddit).

Though streams of the song were quickly pulled by Drake’s team, they are angry nonetheless. A few of Drizzy’s lashed out at Battle on Twitter:

@ERIKBATTLE fuck u for leaking that. Never come to Toronto—
(@Lebanese) August 23, 2014

@ERIKBATTLE @Ms_Mig0s I hope you are planning your funeral for this stunt you pulled with your trash verse—

Niggas getting disrespectful out here. Shit crazy.—
Dynamics • £ (@theDYNAMICS) August 23, 2014

Who did it?—
Dynamics • £ (@theDYNAMICS) August 23, 2014

For his part, Drake has kept silent as of publication.

“View From the 6″ appears to serve as the title track and lead single to Drake’s forthcoming fourth studio album, which is due out next year.



Henry Rollins Apologizes For Suicide Article That Criticized Robin Williams
Aug 23, 2014 11:45am | StereoGum

Earlier this week, Henry Rollins wrote an editorial for LA Weekly called “Fuck Suicide,” in which he criticized parents — Robin Williams specifically — for killing themselves because of the trauma it leaves behind for their children. He’s now apologized for his comments in a statement on his website. “That I hurt anyone by what I said, and I did hurt many, disgusts me. It was not at all my intent but it most certainly was the result.” He also talks about his struggle with depression. “I am not asking for a break from the caning, take me to the woodshed as much as you see fit,” he continued. “If what I said has caused you to be done with me, I get it.” Read the full statement below.

Arcade Fire kicked off three-night stand at Barclays Center with Dan Deacon and The Unicorns (pics, video)

Arcade Fire / Dan Deacon / The Unicorns @ Barclays Center 8/22/2014

Arcade Fire kicked off their three-night stand at Brooklyn's sprawling Barclays Center last night (8/22). As mentioned, after the bobblehead version of the band appeared on a second platform to mime New York Dolls' "Personality Crisis," Arcade Fire brought out David Johansen in Buster Poindexter mode to perform his 1987 hit "Hot Hot Hot," complete with a conga line of more bobbleheads and carnival-goers that all ended up on the stage and stayed up there for the equally joyous "Here Comes the Night Time." The band's two-hour set hit on all four albums and in addition to "Hot Hot Hot" they worked in a bit of LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends" with "Keep the Car Running." Pictures, video and setlist are in this post.

Dan Deacon kept the crowd entertained and engaged during his opening set, including one of his signature dance circle / danceoffs. The Unicorns, who reunited to open this tour, started off the evening by playing almost the entirety of 2003's Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?, which was just reissued. After the show, Win Butler invited everyone to stick around Barclays for a post-show dance party DJ'd by Pulp's Steve Mackey.

Arcade Fire, Dan Deacon and The Unicorns do it again at Barclays Center tonight (8...


Drive Like Jehu discuss reunion, say it's just the one show
Aug 23, 2014 10:18am | Brooklyn Vegan

The great Drive Like Jehu recently announced a reunion show, and now guitarist John Reis has discussed what exactly this reunion will be in a Kreative Kontrol podcast. Here's an excerpt, via Pitchfork:

The show isn't so much a show as it is a chance to collaborate with the Spreckels Pipe Organ located in Balboa Park, San Diego. The pipe organ is a massive, outdoor instrument. I've been going to the organ concerts in the park there for years.

A friend of mine....got on the board of directors for the Spreckels Organ, and pretty much immediately the conversation turned to, 'Dude, how are you gonna hook us up and get us in there to play? Can you arrange that?' So, since February there's been a dialogue about trying to get this to happen and over the last month or so, things have slowly been edging towards where this is going to be reality.

I reached out to the other guys in the band and everyone was really intrigued and excited to not only play again but to see what this was about. I'm super stoked that everybody in the band has embraced it and I can't wait to do it.

...We're just doing this one show. There's nothing else going on. The idea to play came about because of playing with the organ, because of this opportunity. There's definitely no plans to do anything else after this. And there's no plans to do anything before it, Y'know people are like, 'Oh cool, are you gonna do a warm-up?' or this or that. No, we're really stoked t...


Henry Rollins apologizes for comments on suicide, criticizing Robin Williams
Aug 23, 2014 10:09am | Cosequence Of Sound

Henry Rollins has apologized for the column he wrote criticizing Robin Williams for committing suicide. In a letter simply titled “An Apology,” Rollins wrote, “The article I wrote in the LA Weekly about suicide caused a lot of hurt. This is perhaps one of the bigger understatements of all time.”

Rollins said the anger toward him “is off the scale and in my opinion, well placed.” He added, “I am not asking for a break from the caning, take me to the woodshed as much as you see fit. If what I said has caused you to be done with me, I get it.”

He said he plans to address the column further in a new piece he wrote for LA Weekly, which will be posted on Monday.

Read Rollins’ statement in full:

For the last 9+ hours, I have been answering letters from people from all over the world. The anger is off the scale and in my opinion, well placed.

The article I wrote in the LA Weekly about suicide caused a lot of hurt. This is perhaps one of the bigger understatements of all time. I read all the letters. Some of them were very long and the disappointment, resentment and ringing clarity was jarring.

That I hurt anyone by what I said, and I did hurt many, disgusts me. It was not at all my intent but it most certainly was the result.

I have had a life of depression. Some days are excruciating. Knowing what I know and having been through what ...
