Torres & High Highs played the Seaport Music Festival (pics)

Torres / High Highs

The free Seaport Music Festival continued this past Friday (7/25) at this year's location on Fulton St. at Water St., headlined by Torres and with an opening set by High Highs. Torres, sporting an awesome Angel Olsen shirt with nothing but "UNFUCKTHEWORLD" in large bold font, played only three songs off her self titled debut LP, and otherwise treated the crowd to a set of entirely new songs. Her backing band was also different this time around, and she screamed more than I've ever seen her. New stuff sounded good, and hopefully a set with that much of it means a new album is on the way. High Highs were playing some new stuff too, and their set of kinda-psychedelic indie pop was a nice mix with Torres' grungy alt-folk. Pictures of the show are in this post.

The next Seaport Music Fest show is this Friday (8/1) with Snowmine and The Cakset Girls. More pics of Torres and High Highs below...

Cashmere Cat / crowd / Skepta, Jammers Back & friends

Warm Up at MoMA PS1 continued this past Saturday (7/26) with another hot day of electronic music (and more) under the sun in the venue's outdoor courtyard. Suicideyear opened (who we missed), then it was Lit City Trax DJ UNiiQU3 who's been playing NYC a lot lately (also recently with Evian Christ and during RBMA). Rapper GoldLink (who's also been on other notable electronic bills lately, like with Purity Ring's Corin Roddick and with Flume) followed with a live set, and then it was Fade to Mind's Total Freedom who was joined by a surprise appearance by veteran grime MCs Skepta and Jammers Back, and other friends, including Warm Up vet Dev Hynes (who's collaborated with Skepta). Finally, dance producer Cashmere Cat wrapped up the day with the crowd going as wild for him as you'd expect.

More pictures of the day, below...

Dozens Of Keith Urban Fans Get Too Fucked Up In Boston
Jul 28, 2014 8:17am | StereoGum

Earlier this summer EDM star Avicii played a show at Boston’s TD Garden arena, and upwards of 80 people at the show needed medical attention for intoxication-related issues. When that story broke, it was easy to pin the blame on big-time festival rave music and the culture surrounding it. But then, getting fucked up at shows isn’t something specific to any genre. And in retrospect, maybe the problem was Boston? On Saturday night, the Australian country star Keith Urban, never known for having the world’s rowdiest fans, played the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts, 40 minutes outside of Boston. At this show, the Boston Herald reports that 22 people were sent to the hospital for “alcohol-related issues,” and upwards of 50 more were put into protective custody. There was also an unspecified number of alcohol-related arrests. On Twitter, Urban posted a video of himself talking about how great the show was, and here it is:


Heres the finished mural celebrating Beastie Boys 25th anniversary of Pauls Boutique
Jul 28, 2014 8:00am | Cosequence Of Sound

To coincide with the 25th anniversary of Beastie Boys Paul’s Boutique, artist Danielle Mastrion spent the weekend painting a mural at the exact street corner immortalized on the album’s cover. Above, you can see his finished painting (via EV Grieve).

For those who’d like to see it in person, the mural is located on the outside wall of Wolfnights, the sandwich shop that sits on the corner of Rivington and Ludlow in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The project was spearheaded by LeRoy McCarthy, who also unsuccessfully launched a petition to name the intersection “Beastie Boys Square”.

Karen O Rapt Video
Jul 28, 2014 7:47am | StereoGum

Yeah Yeah Yeahs leader Karen O is going to release Crush Songs, her first-ever solo album, in a couple of months, and this morning marks the first time we get to hear anything from it. First single “Rapt” is a short, skeletal, lo-fi acoustic number, the sort of thing that could almost serve as a drawn-out intro to a Yeah Yeah Yeahs song. And its dreamlike new video, directed by Karen’s husband Barney Clay, is made up entirely of shots of Karen floating underwater, with her makeup somehow remaining immaculate. Karen’s Stop The Virgens collaborator, the Oscar-nominated production designer K.K. Barrett, also worked on the video. Check it out below.

FACT mix 452: Claude Speeed
Jul 28, 2014 7:32am | Fact Magazine

LuckyMe’s Claude Speeed toasts his debut album My Skeleton with a Summer mix for FACT.

Speeed may have labelled this his Summer mix, but it isn’t all sunshine and good times – instead, it’s somewhere between Kanye’s Cruel Summer and Fennesz’s Endless one. 90+ minutes in length, it hypnotises you with a succession of beatless music by CFCF, Sevendeaths, Richard Skelton and Speeed himself… then, at the mix’s climax, the world comes crashing in on you.

Speeed has always had one hell of a way with a mix, though. Formerly of American Men, Claude’s session with LuckyMe’s Dominic Flannigan (who is sampled at the start of this mix) for Goodhood’s London store was in constant rotation at FACT’s office, and it’s been no different for this one. My Skeleton, his long-awaited solo debut, is out today.

Jul 28, 2014 7:19am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O recently announced that she'd release her first solo album, Crush Songs, on September 9 via Julian Casablancas' Cult Records, and she's now given us the first taste of the record. "Rapt" is under two minutes of bedroom singer/songwriter stuff with no more than her roughly recorded voice and a few guitar chords. Watch the video, directed by her husband Barney Clay with production by her Stop the Virgens collaborator KK Barrett, below.

Lykke Li [interview], Weezer, Iceage, Spoon - DiS Does Singles 28.07.14
Jul 28, 2014 6:59am | Drowned In Sound

Hello and welcome to a special edition of DiS Does Singles. Lykke Lis Gunshot is out today, so we gave it Single of the Week and asked your favourite Scandinavian songwriter how to swear properly and what song makes her cry.

Elsewhere, Weezer are still knocking around, Iceage have picked up a Southern fried twang and Spoon have foreseen a future apocalypse. Plus, Joanna Gruesome and SBTRKT both debuted ace new tracks in the past week. Really, alls well in the musical world, unless youve been listening to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles soundtrack.

Single of the Week

Lykke Li

Gunshot (Atlantic)

Love: its an ideal. Something to search for and fetishise. A promise youve been sold by string-drenched film scenes and songs by The Beatles. You know what it is but you cant quite grasp it.

Heartbreak: its a reality. Something thats achievable and universal. A fate that chiselled actors, femme fatales and especially you will succumb to. Its just so horribly attainable.

Such is the mindset it takes to write a proper break-up album. Were talking about The Cures Disintegration, Adeles 21 and, of course, Lykke Lis I Never Learn. The fucked up mindframe that envelopes your senses so that everything is processed through a singular prism of self-pity. And to think its sparked off by a single moment


Listen: Karen Os new single Rapt
Jul 28, 2014 6:57am | Cosequence Of Sound

For her upcoming debut solo album, Crush Songs, Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O gathered together a collection of songs shed written nearly a decade ago during a period of particular romantic uncertainty. “When I was 27, I crushed a lot,” she said. “I wasnt sure Id ever fall in love again. These songs were written and recorded in private around this time. They are the soundtrack to what was an ever continuing love crusade. I hope they keep you company on yours.”

Today, we get our first dispatch from the love-sick Oscar nominee as she unveils a delicate, lo-fi ballad called “Rapt”. In the accompanying video, directed by Karen’s husband Barney Clay, the YYYs singer is submerged under a pool of water — sort of like that one scene in Breaking Bad.

Listen/watch below.

Crush Songs is due out September 9th via Julian Casablancas own Cult Records. The album will first be released as a limited-edition vinyl incorporating Karens own personal drawings and handwritten lyrics. It will then be available digitally, on CD, and as a single vinyl release. Pre-orders are now ongoing.
