Greenpoint club Europa is now the Good Room
Oct 31, 2014 12:40pm | Brooklyn Vegan

the Good Room (via kellythebruce)

A new club called the Good Room is in the process of opening in Greenpoint at 98 Meserole Ave. If that address sounds familiar, it's because it's the location of the Brooklyn venue previously and very recently known as Europa. Their first event was an invite-only party this past Saturday (10/25) with DFA DJs Nancy Whang and The Juan Maclean along with Nomi Ruiz. Club designer/legend Steven Lewis is reportedly the rebranded club's designer. Bedford and Bowery went that night:

The place's operators and handlers are still keeping it very much under wraps, but (oops!) a tweet from one of Saturday's other DJs, "trans superstar of tomorrow" Nomi Ruiz, reveals that veteran club maestro Steve Lewis designed the room, which is actually three rooms located up a flight of stairs. The first consists of a spacious dance floor surrounded by curved banquette seating. That room is outfitted with a bumping sound system that can be heard half a block away, plus the obligatory state-of-the-art lighting, smoke machines and disco ball. It opens onto another room dominated by a projecting rectangular bar. And off to the side is a smaller parlor where, behind the DJ booth, a wall of shelves stocked with vinyl give off a library vibe. On Saturday, techno and electronica dominated the main room while New Order and the like had people pogoing in the side room.

Review: Red Bull Culture Clash 2014
Oct 31, 2014 12:39pm | Fact Magazine

Last night at Earls Court, the Red Bull Culture Clash pitted some of the best from grime, hip-hop, reggae and drum’n'bass against each other in a four-round soundclash. FACT’s Mr. Beatnick was on site to cover the digs, the dubplates and the drama.

Arriving at Earls Court last night for Red Bull Culture Clash, we were immediately struck by two things. Firstly, the enormous scale of the event 20 thousand strong this year, and one of the largest raves weve ever witnessed and with the youngest, most gender balanced crowd I think weve seen at a rave too, all screaming their lungs out and bursting with energy from the moment the doors opened at 5pm.

Thousands of kilowatts of power were driving four huge scale sound-systems, one for each team; reigning clash champions Boy Better Know, New York newcomers A$AP Mob, Jamaican stalwarts Stone Love, and Rebel Sound, a concocted squad of old and new in the form of David Rodigan, Shy FX and Chase and Status. With a roll call of secret superstars waiting to be brought on stage during the course of the battle, it promised to be nothing short of spectacular, and judging by the ensuing social media meltdown last night, we think its fair to say it was.

If you didnt catch the stream or win a golden ticket, heres a brief blow-by-blow. Were going to completely ignore the official round winners and assign our own sc...

YOB announce 2 nights at Saint Vitus w/ Tombs, Occultation, Kings Destroy & Ecstatic Vision
Oct 31, 2014 12:30pm | Brooklyn Vegan

YOB at Saint Vitus in 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)

Doom masters YOB put out the killer new Clearing the Path to Ascend earlier this year and they'll wrap up 2014 with a two-night stand at Brooklyn's Saint Vitus on December 12 & 13, presented by Pitchfork. Both nights have great openers. The first night is the crushing Tombs (who just wrapped up a two-night stand at Vitus on their tour with Pallbearer) and Kings Destroy (who's tour with Pentagram hits NYC this weekend). Then the second night it's NYC's witchy Occultation and the psychedelic recent Relapse signees Ecstatic Vision (who also played night 2 of that Pallbearer/Tombs run). Tickets for night 1 and night 2 are on sale now.

YOB's only other date that we're currently aware of is Maryland Deathfest 2015. Stream a track from the new YOB LP with the Vitus flyer, below...

Arcade Fire share Festi, a short horror film featuring James Murphy, Fleet Foxes, The National, and more
Oct 31, 2014 12:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Arcade Fire, avid fans of quirky costumes galore, have unveiled a delightfully scary treat in celebration of Halloween: a horror film! Directed by “Noreen Bauble,” one of the band’s many monikers, Festi is a truly bizarre 21-minute visual that takes a look back at their 2011 summer festival tour. The best part of the flick, however, might be its star-studded cast in James Murphy, Fleet Foxes, The National, Peter Gabriel, Slash, and Andrew Garfield, among others.

While the film is centered around Win Butler’s 27th birthday, things take a turn for the worst when the curse of the 27 Club rear its ugly head and the band has to deal with murder, mystery, and, yes, even Jim Morrison’s ghost. Things to definitely look out for: James Murphy playing the role of “sad DJ”, The National/Dessner brothers as freaky twins, and Slash belting out “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.

Watch Festi below, followed by its official film poster.

A look back at the Arcade Fire summer festival tour, 2011.
It was directed by "Noreen Bauble" and stars the members of Arcade Fire, James Murphy, Fleet Foxes, The National, ZZ Top, Slash, Peter Gabriel and more. Watch the full spooky thing below...

Lee Bannon RMF-3 (Feat. Charlie Benante Of Anthrax) (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 31, 2014 12:19pm | StereoGum

Experimental electronic producer Lee Bannon has teamed up with Charlie Benante, who is best known as the lead songwriter and drummer in the thrash metal band Anthrax, on a new drum ’n’ bass track. “RMF-3″ will be included on Bannon’s forthcoming Main/Flex EP. The early moments of the song feature the sampled voice of a child accompanied by the sound of flashbulbs along to a muted, ambient build. About a minute in, the track spits fire as it staggers toward something cosmic, accompanied by a sound that can only truly be likened to a fast-bouncing slinky or the hollow gurgle of Aphex Twin’s “Digeridoo.” Listen below.


Seth Rogen cast as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Steve Jobs biopic
Oct 31, 2014 12:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Aaron Sorkin’s forthcoming Steve Jobs biopic recently found its leading man in Christian Bale. Now, according to Variety, producers have officially cast Apple’s other co-founder.

Seth Rogen will play Steve Wozniak, who along with Jobs and Ronald Wayne founded Apple and is credited for the company’s early success in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain is being eyed for an unspecified role in the film, reports Variety.

Jobs is slated to begin filming next spring under the direction of Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire). Sorkin previously revealed that the film would revolve around three significant events in Apples history: the launch of the Mac computer, the acquisition of software company NeXT, which enabled Jobs to return to Apple in 1996, and the introduction of the iPod.

Arcade Fire have made a horror film starring James Murphy, Andrew Garfield, Peter Gabriel and more
Oct 31, 2014 12:06pm | Fact Magazine

Complete with cheesy ’80s end credits.

We’ve seen Flying Lotus’s gruesome animated video and Dizzee Rascal’s slasher homage, but Arcade Fire have raised the bar with their Halloween contribution  a 20-minute horror movie titled Festi.

Directed by “Noreen Bauble”, which Pitchfork points out is one of the band’s previously-used pseudonyms, the film starts off as a behind-the-scenes tour diary but soon turns spooky. Will Butler is celebrating his 27th birthday, but the occasion is tainted by the spectre of the 27 Club and the ghost of Jim Morrison.

Guest stars include Terry Gilliam, ZZ Top, James Murphy (playing a sad DJ), Peter Gabriel (a security guard), Andrew Garfield (Spiderman, of course), Fleet Foxes (as bearded singers), The National’s Bryce and Aaron Desser (creepy twins) and Slash as himself, with a performance of ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’. Check it out below.

Bob Dylan confirms new LP 'Shadows In The Night' for 2015
Oct 31, 2014 12:03pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Bob Dylan is about to complete the Basement Tapes series next week (11/4) and he's now confirmed a new studio album for 2015 titled Shadows In The Night. Stereogum says it seems likely that it will be a covers album containing the cover of Frank Sinatra's "Full Moon and Empty Hearts" which was released earlier this year and can be streamed at Dylan's website.

Dylan's upcoming tour hits NYC from 11/28 to 12/3 for five Beacon Theatre shows and also includes a show in Newark on 11/26. Ticketmaster says not many left.

U2 love Future Islands and Skrillex, but dont get the appeal of Neutral Milk Hotel
Oct 31, 2014 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

As their collaboration highly publicized stunt with Apple should’ve indicated, U2 are pretty hip these days. How hip, you ask? Well, hip enough to weigh in on a couple of your favorite indie rock bands, apparently.

As Stereogum points out, during a lengthy Rolling Stone interview, both Bono and The Edge offered up their two cents on a few artists they’d recently seen live. Bono praised Future Islands, saying with Yoda-like wisdom, “That song, ‘Seasons’? A miracle, that is.”

Meanwhile, The Edge attended Coachella earlier this year and found EDM wunderkind Skrillex to be quite entertaining. Indie legends Neutral Milk Hotel? Eh, not so much…

“The band that I liked at Coachella was Cage the Elephant. Their commitment to the performance really blew so much of the other stuff away. They really did own it in a way that few other artists did. Broken Bells were great, and Skrillex’s thing was pretty cool. Pixies were on, that was good to see them. And I love Outkast. Some of the more strange hippie stuff wasn’t that great. Neutral Milk Hotel, you know them? If you were sort of one of the faithful, you could sort of get excited about it. It didn’t really have a universal appeal at all. And that might be its appeal.”


Below, watch live clips of a few of the aforementioned artists.

Watch: Arca Now You Know Video
Oct 31, 2014 11:35am | CMJ

Just a few days before the release of his debut LP for Mute, Arca has dropped a video for the album cut Now You Know. Like Thievery, the visual for Now You Know was helmed by longtime Arca collaborator Jesse Kanda. Here are some words that come to mind: tinsel, vertigo-inducing, bulging synths, glitter, anxiety, fireworks. Xen is out November 4. Watch the video below.

The post Watch: Arca – “Now You Know” Video appeared first on CMJ.

Pianos Become the Teeth celebrated 'Keep You' at The Studio at Webster Hall w/ Frameworks & Gates (pics & setlist)

Pianos Become the Teeth @ The Studio at Webster Hall - 10/29/14

Pianos Become the Teeth released their excellent third album, Keep You, this week and brought their release week tour to NYC on Wednesday (10/29) at The Studio at Webster Hall. The place was packed -- if it wasn't sold out it was close to it -- and Pianos put on the best show I've seen from them yet. Following two screamo albums, Keep You is the band's first album since Kyle Durfey started doing clean vocals, and what first seemed like a jarring change has actually resulted in their best album yet. They played a lot of Keep You, and even though the album had only hit the internet nine days earlier, a ton of people knew every word. That's good too, because this is the kind of music that's cathartic to belt out in a room of people doing the same thing. Like much of PBTT's material, these new songs find Kyle grappling with the death of his father, and there's a real power to seeing him open up about it in his new clear-as-day singing style. They worked in a few older songs too, which really got the longtime fans going, and included "Hiding," the excellent song off last year's split with Touche Amore which foreshadowed Keep You and is as good as any track on it.

The openers were well-matched, each working with a different side of Pianos' sound. Gates had the atmospheric rock and soari...

Download Da Mafia 6ix Hear Sum Evil Mixtape
Oct 31, 2014 11:21am | StereoGum

Last year, DJ Paul, the former leader of the massively important Memphis rap collective Three 6 Mafia, reunited most of that group’s original lineup (everyone but co-leader Juicy J jumped on board) to form a new group called Da Mafia 6ix. 6ix Commandments, the mixtape they released last year, was a rowdy and chaotic and great tribute to the group’s anarchic early sound. And even though the death of group member Lord Infamous last year could’ve ended the project, Da Mafia 6ix is now back with a new mixtape called Hear Sum Evil. Past Three 6 collaborators like MJG, La Chat, Lil Wyte, Paul Wall, and Fiend make appearances. Check out the new tape below.
