Americas Pear Farmers Thank Rick Ross
Nov 21, 2014 4:39pm | StereoGum
Rick Ross lost some weight recently thanks to a fruit-heavy diet (RossFit isn’t real, unfortunately), and when he proclaimed his love of pears to an interviewer last summer, he instantly became the stuff of Vine legend. Rozay’s “Shout out to all the pear” quote became one of 2014′s biggest memes — never mind that Ross actually said, “Shout out to all the pear eaters.” Here’s the infamous loop:
Anamanaguchi share video for new single "Pop It," playing shows, opening for Dillon Francis at Barclays
Nov 21, 2014 4:05pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Eight-bit champions Anamanaguchi released the helium-powered single "Pop It" earlier this fall which you may have heard recently in a Target commercial. The song just got a video that matches the style of the song, all candy colors and a girl whose face is always just obscured by a balloon. You can watch it below. Look for the band's new album, [USA], out in 2015.
Until then, Anamanaguchi have some live dates, including opening for Dillon Francis' January 16 show at Barclays Center in NYC (tickets). All dates are listed, along with the video, below...

Video Rewind: Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder back up Mike Watt on The Jon Stewart Show
Nov 21, 2014 3:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound
The Minutemen bassist Mike Watt plays a pivotal role in Foo Fighters history. For Foos’ first official tour in 1995, they, along with Eddie Vedders side-project Hovercraft, opened up for Watt on his solo outing. In addition to performing as openers, Vedder and the Foos served as Watt’s backing band throughout the tour. When taking into account the fact that Foo guitarist Pat Smear also co-founded influential outfit The Germs, this makes the Watt/Foos/Vedder bill one of the most eclectic, rock royalty-packed lineups this side of Mad Season.
The “supergroup” of sorts hit the late night television circuit by way of Jon Stewarts pre-Daily Show program, The Jon Stewart Show, which aired on MTV during the mid-’90s. With Grohl on drums and Vedder and Smear doubling up on guitar, Watt led the motley grunge-meets-punk crew through the dastardly “Big Train”, taken from his solo debut, Ball-Hog or Tugboat?. Watt opens the song with his sinister croon before Grohl’s percussive power comes crashing in and truly kicks things off. Vedder stays stoic for the majority of the performance, but does add some subtle backing vocals to the mix. Smear, meanwhile, nearly steals the show with a couple bouts of manic slide guitar work.
It’s a rare and interesting glimpse at the close-knit nature of rock music, wherein a younger generation of rockers not only gets to ...
Chromatics White Light
Nov 21, 2014 2:27pm | StereoGum
A truly beautiful new Chromatics song has emerged to usher us into the weekend. “White Light” sounds like its title suggests, all soft tones and ethereal glimmers. Ruth Radelet’s sighing melodies here might as well be moonbeams. It’s a gorgeous piece of work; we owe Johnny Jewel our gratitude for continuing to clear out his vaults. Listen or download below.

Jack White keyboardist Isaiah Ikey Owens tragically passed away from a heart attack while on tour with White in Mexico last month. Following a brief hiatus from the road, White enlisted longtime collaborator Dean Fertita to replace Owens and embarked on a European/UK leg earlier this month. This week, White and co. played the final date of the tour in London, and White took time out of the set to pay tribute to his late bandmate.
He asked the audience to applaud in Owens’ memory and then dedicated to him a performance of “Love Interruption”, a track from his first solo album, Blunderbuss. Watch fan-shot footage of the tribute below (scroll to the 5:00 mark).
Dream Police concluding tour w/ Honey in NYC this weekend w/ Ivy, add west coast dates; Ligature opening for Pharmakon
Nov 21, 2014 2:20pm | Brooklyn Vegan
The Men's avant-leaning spinoff Dream Police released their debut LP Hypnotized earlier this month via Sacred Bones and have been on tour with ripping psych punks Honey (mems Psychic Ills, Amen Dunes, Stupid Party) in support of it. When we last spoke, there was no NYC date on that tour (though both bands have played NYC separately since), but it was later announced that the tour would be concluding at Brooklyn's Union Pool on Saturday (11/22). That show is triply good because it features local punks Ivy, whose great self-titled LP is out now on Katorga Works. Remnants are on the bill too, and tickets are on sale now. In December, Dream Police kick off a West Coast tour. All dates are listed below.
In related news, Dream Police's Sacred Bones labelmate Pharmakon plays her album release show the same night in Brooklyn at Palisades, and ex-The Men project Ligature was recently added as an opener. Also on the bill is Baltimore's S. English (1/2 of Corporate Park) and Negation. Tickets are still available. Ligature also has upcoming dates with Puce Mary, including her Saint Vitus show with Marshstepper.
List of Dream Police dates, with streams from DP, Honey and Ivy, below...

Johnny Jewel shares unreleased Chromatics song White Light listen
Nov 21, 2014 2:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound
As another week comes to a close, so does another previously unreleased Chromatics song makes its way to the Internet, courtesy of resident producer Johnny Jewel and his seemingly bottomless vault of rarities. Following the 8-track versions of “At Your Door” and “Shadow”, an instrumental piece, and a cover of “Blue Moon”, comes an ethereal and slow-burning gem called “White Light”. It may have been two years since the synthpop outfit released their excellent album, Kill For Love, but gorgeous bonus cuts like this one make the wait for a new LP almost painless. (Keyword: Almost).
Listen to “White Light” below.

Death by Audio has two shows left -- tonight's lineup clue is up
Nov 21, 2014 1:53pm | Brooklyn Vegan
We're down to the last two shows ever at Death by Audio. We've come off a week featuring Future Islands, Thee Oh Sees (twice!), Ty Segall, Les Savy Fav and more. DbA just put up the clue for tonight's "Top Secret!" lineup:
2 shows left, it feels so insane to be almost done with this whole dang thing, no riddles today, just cities of origin, and those in order of performance, brooklyn, memphis, detroit, queens. hope to see you tonight!Screaming Females say that Brooklyn is Shellshag, which makes sense as that duo has probably played DbA more than any other band. We have a good idea who Memphis might be, but who do you think Detroit and Queens are? We look forward to finding out tonight.

Staff Picks: Track Of The Week
Nov 21, 2014 1:45pm | CMJ
Sonny & The Sunsets – Cheap Extensions
Charming, San Francisco-based indie-pop group Sonny & The Sunsets just released a new track from their upcoming album, Talent Night At The Ashram. It’s a sunny (no pun-intended), jangly and addictive tune. – Arielle Parnes-Katz
Sleaford Mods – Bunch Of Cunts
The whole EP’s great, so stream through below. But this more minimal than usual tune stuck out. While I think maybe “Bunch Of Cunts” has floated out there earlier, this week brought the official release of this curt little dittie from England’s current clown princes of the broke underbelly. Jason Wiliamson’s gummed-up gattling gun of a gush covers every topic that’s needling him, even his own voice, over a dirt-simple drum machine and a one-note synth that feels like the hum in the ears of a man on his way to robbing a bodega. Hilarious lines all over (R...

Mr. Twin Sister @ Baby's All Right, 10/3/2014
(more by Amanda Hatfield)
Mr. Twin Sister found creative rebirth (and an honorific) this year, releasing their lush, groovy new album which is really worth checking out if you haven't yet. You can listen to the whole thing below. The Brooklyn band are not following the usual album/tour pattern, having only played a few dates since adding the "Mr." to their name. They have a couple NYC shows coming up, though. On Saturday (11/22) at Shea Stadium they'll play as part of a benefit for Middle East Children's Alliance which offers emergency Gaza aid. Lost Boy?, Eula and Brooklyn Nomads are also on the bill. Tickets are $10 at the door.
The band will also open for Sylvan Esso at their Terminal 5 show on January 23. Tickets for that show are still available.
Flyer for the Shea show and the album stream, below...
