Sep 19, 2014 11:25am | Brooklyn Vegan

Tim Hecker at Hardcore Activity In Progress (more by Greg Cristman)

As previously discussed, Pitchfork's Show No Mercy and Blackened Music are presenting a new music series called Tinnitus, which kicks off with Ben Frost in NYC on October 18 at The Wick. Since we last spoke, ambient pop artist Julianna Barwick and dark ambient artist Oneirogen were both added. Tickets are still available.

It's also since been announced that the next one happens November 12 at The Wick with drone great Tim Hecker (who just played Basilica Sound Scape, another event curated in part by Pitchfork's Show No Mercy) headlining. Avant-guitar wizard Loren Mazzacane Connors (Kath Bloom, Thurston Moore) and experimental pop artist Circuit des Yeux (aka Haley Fohr) are opening the show. Tickets are on sale now.

Sep 19, 2014 11:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

HAIM has announced a limited-edition picture disc of their latest single, “My Song 5″, and it’s quite the nifty little design. The vinyl comes in the shape of Alana Haim, with her arms and legs stretching well beyond the vinyl’s outer edges.

Due out October 27th, the picture disc includes the ASAP Ferg-aided remix of “My Song 5″ as its B-side. Pre-orders are now ongoing.

Listen to the remix below.




Iceage How Many
Sep 19, 2014 11:17am | StereoGum

I’ve heard people compare Iceage’s new Plowing The Fields Of Love to the Mekons’ 1985 classic Fear And Whiskey, but when I listen to it, the album I’m reminded of most is the Libertines’ self-titled second record. That resemblance is most apparent in Elias Bender Rønnenfelt’s vocals, which share many qualities with those of Pete Doherty. I think you can really hear that in new single “How Many,” which is the third track on Plowing The Fields Of Love, and which you can spin right now. Listen below, let me know what you think.

Absolutely Free Visions
Sep 19, 2014 11:15am | StereoGum

Absolutely Free’s newest song begins with a warbled old-timey tune, a radio dial fading in and out on the band’s wide away of influences. But when “Vision’s” finally kicks in, it sounds completely modern — sure, they’re music is rooted in the past, but this song sounds urgent and of the now. Coupled with the sprightly “Beneath The Air,” Absolutely Free is showing a dynamic range that should serve them well on their upcoming debut album. Listen below.

Check Out Cass McCombs Protest Song & Jarvis Cockers Essay For The Peoples Climate March
Sep 19, 2014 11:14am | StereoGum

The People’s Climate March, the largest climate change rally in history, is happening this Sunday, 9/21 in New York, and various musicians are playing a part. For instance, Cass McCombs teamed with the Chapin Sisters for a gleaming old-fashioned folk singalong simply entitled “Protest Song.” Over hand-strummed campfire chords, McCombs and the Chapins harmonize on such pointed questions as “I wonder how?” and I wonder who?” and “I wonder when?” You can stream or download it below.

Ty Segall wrapped up his wild two-night stay at Webster Hall (pics with night 2 openers La Luz)
Sep 19, 2014 11:09am | Brooklyn Vegan

Ty Segall @ Webster Hall 9/20/2014

Segall's frequent glam-rock references were dusted through the set like a fine layer of glitter; Cronin wore shiny blue facepaint; the crop-circle-esque Manipulator logo provided a backdrop on the Webster stage and adorned Segall's all-white ensemble. But the sonic focus was on those blistering guitar solos that populate so many of the tracks on Manipulator. Segall's fingers only left his strings for an occasional fist-pump or finger-point into the churning crowd. There were very few moments the audience was not wont to mosh, and mosh they did.

Though barricades around the photo pit are customary at Webster Hall shows, neither were present on Thursday. That's because Wednesday's attendees obliterated them, and perhaps management thought it best to forgo setting them up again only to have them ignored. So the stream of kids jumping onstage only to jump off a few seconds later was pretty much constant, including one flannel-clad guy very dedicated to a '90s state of mind who must have made the leap a dozen or so times in the last half of the 20-odd song set. - [Village Voice]

Last night (9/18), Ty Segall played his second of two Webster Hall shows which was just as bonkers as the first night, with a constant stream of (gentle) stage divers and crowdsurfers, including Ty himself where atop the audience he sang his last song of...

Neko Case covers the Squidbillies theme listen
Sep 19, 2014 10:50am | Cosequence Of Sound

A few years back, the creators of Adult Swim’s animated series Squidbillies enlisted several acts to cover the shows theme song for a special run of episodes. Alabama Shakes lent the tune a new sheen of heartache, while Lambchop turned it into a twangy country anthem. With season nine premiering this Sunday (September 21st), the creators have tapped another crop of musicians to head on up to the ol Appalachian Mountains.

To kick off the latest chapter of everyones favorite anthropomorphic squids,  Neko Case delivers an especially mournful rendition of the theme. Like Alabama Shakes and Lambchop before her, Case immediately picks up on the songs profound emotional potential and runs with it. Fragile and evocative, its the kind of forlorn ballad that might make even Linda Ronstadt or Emmylou Harris tear up something fierce. Youll probably want a shot of whiskey after this lil number is over.

Check out Cases version below.

This season of Squidbillies will also feature covers from King Khan and the Shrines, Dwight Yoakam, Todd Rundgren, Milk Carton Kids, and Centro-Matic.

Below, check out a brief behind-the-scene clip of Case in the studio.

Jessie Ware Say You Love Me (Gorgon City Remix)
Sep 19, 2014 10:44am | StereoGum

Jessie Ware’s awesome Tough Love track “Say You Love Me” is a big, bold power ballad, a far cry from her usual poised smoldering. Rising London production duo Gorgon City’s remix remakes the song into a club anthem, framing it with a different sort of bigness and boldness. Whereas the original might crush your heart, the remix might just level your whole body. Stream or download it below.

Queen There Must Be More To Life Than This (Feat. Michael Jackson)
Sep 19, 2014 10:42am | StereoGum

So, uh, Queen and Michael Jackson once recorded a song together. Did you know this? I didn’t know this. Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson, two of the greatest and most distinctive pop-music vocalists of all time, both recorded their parts for a power-ballad duet called “There Must Be More To Life Than This” during the sessions for Queen’s 1984 album The Works, and the band recorded a backing track, but they never finished it. This boggles my mind. They’ve got a song with Michael Jackson — in 1984, Jackson’s world-conquering commercial peak — and they don’t do anything with it. That’s like finding a giant pile of money under the bed in your hotel room and deciding, what the hell, you’ll just leave it there. Mercury used a Jackson-free version of the song on his 1985 solo album Mr. Bad Guy, and that was it, until now. William Orbit, the guy who produced Madonna’s Ray Of Light, put together a finished-enough version of the song, and it’ll appear, alongside a couple of other unreleased tracks, on a forthcoming Queen collection called Queen Forever. Listen to it below.

Song : Lydia Ainsworth : Hologram
Sep 19, 2014 10:39am | My Old Kentucky Blog

“Hologram”, the latest song from Lydia Ainsworth could not have come out at a better time of the year. The mood of the track reflects shorter days of light and the darker tones that come along with autumn and the falling leaves. Her vocals slither over the ominous instrumentation bewitching the listener with every note. Having three songs to work with to date, her debut album, Right From Real, is geared to be a must listen. It is out on September 30th via Arbutus. Find the song below.

Stevie Nicks released "24 Karat Gold" from new LP (listen); will have self portrait show on display in NYC in October
Sep 19, 2014 10:36am | Brooklyn Vegan

two of Stevie's self portraits

This October, Steve Nicks will have a variety of her self portraits on display in NYC for a photo show called "24 K Gold," ArtsBeat reports. The shots were all taken between 1975 and 1987 and were selected by Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart. The show first happens at 201 Mulberry St on October 10 & 11 and then at the Morrison Hotel Gallery (116 Prince St) from October 12 - Halloween. If you're wondering why Stevie got engaged in self portraits, the ArtsBeat article sheds more light:

"I wanted to learn how to become a photographer," Ms. Nicks said in comments forwarded by her spokeswoman, Liz Rosenberg. "And I don't sleep at night, so I thought, who am I going to ask to stay up all night, and then do a show tomorrow? So I'm not going to get Christine," she said, referring to Christine McVie, her colleague in Fleetwood Mac. "She's going to say, 'Are you crazy? I'm going to the bar. Bye.'"

In search of variety, Ms. Nicks used props and costumes, often tinkering with lighting and placement through the night. "I did everything," she said. "I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director -- it was my joy. I was the model."

Stevie's also got a similarly named solo album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault, coming October 7 via Warner Bros, just before the photo show begins. She just put out the track "24 Karat Gold" today...
