Flight of the Conchords members working on new HBO comedy, plotting musical
Sep 2, 2014 4:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Bret? Present. Jemaine? Present. HBO? Present.

In an interview with the Guardian, Jemaine Clement has revealed that he and partner Bret McKenzie are reconvening as Flight of the Conchords for a new four-episode comedy series commissioned by the premium cable network. Yes, it is, in fact, “Business Time”.

Update: According to Clement’s Twitter account, Clement and McKenzie are working on an entirely different HBO project that is not Flight of the Conchords. A musical still appears to be in the cards, however.

While promoting his new vampire-comedy film What We Do in the Shadows, Clement was pressed about the forthcoming HBO show. He explained, “It was supposed to [happen] this year but then we decided to put What We Do in the Shadows out ourselves.”

Since Flight of the Conchords the TV series halted production in 2009, Clement and McKenzie have only gotten the band back together on a handful of occasions. Most notably, a brief tour in 2010, some scattered shows in 2012, and a charity single for Red Nose Day.

Though a Flight of the Conchords movie has been rumored for years, Clement added that a musical is a more realistic possibility. “We talk about a movie every so often,” said Clement. Sometimes it feels like we lost a lot of impetus over the last couple of years. But Bret, [direc...

It would be good to do something all together I miss playing Flight of the Conchords gigs.”

Fools Gold Day Off @ 50 Kent: September 1, 2014
Sep 2, 2014 4:35pm | CMJ


Fools Gold closed out the Labor Day weekend at 50 Kent in Brooklyn with the New York edition of the Day Off festival. It was a zealous showcase containing acts ranging in style, fame and ­­­experience. Crowd-goers reflected the diversity of the lineup with various ages and ethnicities all convening to see what the label was going to dish up this year. Fools Gold’s Day Off events are gaining notoriety, as this is the first year they expanded their showcases to cities outside New York, including Toronto, Los Angeles, Miami and Atlanta.

One of the first acts to kick-off the night was Cakes Da Killa. As an openly gay rapper, Cakes (along with others like Mykki Blanco and Le1f) is changing how we view rap personalities and queerness. Stage production was bold and appropriately theatrical with talented dancers vogueing one second then combatively krumping the next. Cakes delivers his lines with that same ferocity and aggression, accompanied by danceable drum machines, progressive synths and house tempos.

Grande Marshall continued the show with a leisurely and more laid-back performance. The Philly rap prodigy is known for his slower distorted beats and syrupy undertones reminiscent of more southern rap origins. Grande Marshall didnt share the stage with any other artists, but was more than competent as he solely performed new track Girls (Still Got) Rhythm off his upcoming project, My Brothers Keeper.

Forward touring North America w/ Long Knife (dates)
Sep 2, 2014 4:07pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey

Forward

In 2013, long-running Japanese punks Forward cancelled their US tour. Many were bummed. However, now it seems a North American trek will be a reality. The Burning Spirits-bred band are making the trip over at the end of October and will play places like Los Angeles, Austin (Fun Fun Fun Fest), and Philadelphia with support from Portland's Long Knife. The tour also includes two back-to-back NYC dates: November 16 at the Acheron with Portland d-beaters (and Tragedy-related) Warcry and local ragers Ajax and November 17 at Saint Vitus with Warthog -- who released the seriously punishing Prisons this year -- and the always-busy La Misma. Tickets for the Vitus show are on sale now. No advance tickets for the Acheron show at the moment. The full list of dates appears below.

Forward were formed from members of Death Side and Insane Youth. They released a split with Teargas this year titled Burning Spirits 2014, following up their 2012 run that consisted of LP War Nuke And Death Sentence and EP Devil's Cradle. They also have one of the great Facebook About sections: "we are forward from japan, we speak little english so fuck you." Tourmates Long Knife, who have something of a Poison Ide...


New-age icon Iasos released a compilation on Numero Group, playing live and holding workshop in Brooklyn

Iasos' Celestial Soul Portrait cover art

New-age musician Iasos has been churning out dreamy, celestial material since 1975. The Alexandroupolis, Greece-born ambient auteur immigrated to the United States at four-years old, with his family, and they briefly settled in New York City before moving upstate. Iasos made a post-college, cross-country move to California in 1968 to focus on music, which he began to perform with his group the Nova Shadow Quartet while in school. He struggled for years trying to form ensembles that might be able to recreate the music he heard in his head. Iasos released his debut effort, called Inter-Dimensional Music Through Iasos, in 1975 via his own Inter-Dimensional Music label. He's gone on to release 14 albums (most via IDM), and last year saw compilation Celestial Soul Portrait come out via Chicago's incomparable Numero Group. You can stream Celestial Soul Portrait (via Rdio) in this post.

Iasos live is an extremely rare occurrence, but when it does happen, his shows are one-to-two-hour multimedia experiences complete with self-designed visuals. NYC can experience this while celebrating the arrival of Fall at Baby's All Right on September 23 as part of the venue's first annual "Autumnal Equinox Celebration." The evening also features drink specials, the restaurant will have a special menu, and Prince Rama will DJ the afterparty. &nbsp...


Diplo and Skrillex were booed off the stage at Burning Man
Sep 2, 2014 3:55pm | Cosequence Of Sound

During this summer’s Mad Decent Block Party, Diplo and Skrillex have been continually regaled as two conquering EDM heroes arriving home back in Greece. But as the EDM maestros learned during an appearance at Burning Man last week, not all electronic fans are quite as ready to shower onto them throngs of adulation.

The two superstar producers, who perform together under the Jack U moniker, played a surprise set at the Nevada festival last Wednesday night, filling in for Detroit DJ Seth Troxler following a sudden drop-out. Or, more accurately they tried to play.

While audience members were tolerant of Skrillex’s signature wobbles and drops, they were simply fed up with Diplo after he played DJ Snake and Lil Jon’s smash hit, “Turn Down For What”. According to Pulse Radio (via Radio.com), the choice in song was immediately met with a roar of angry boos, and both he and Skrillex were forced to leave the stage.

However, Diplo himself claims the pair were never actually booed off stage. In a subsequent tweet, he wrote, “@PulseRadio @burningman of u check the video we played techno for an hour and ended w turn down for what and people cheered lol ask robot.” As of publication, no video of the incident has surfaced online.

I guess we know what Burning Man attendees will turn down for.

No Joy played Brooklyn Night Bazaar, add Mercury Lounge date w/ Tonstartssbandht after MHOW w/ Deafheaven
Sep 2, 2014 3:34pm | Brooklyn Vegan

No Joy @ BKNB 8/30/2014 (via @brooklynvegan instagram)

No Joy were in NYC over the weekend, playing Brooklyn Night Bazaar on Saturday night as part of a lineup that included Black Pus (Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt), Cousin Brian, and Flagland. Set against projections of (the reunited) Blood Brothers live footage, the Montreal group peppered their set with new material -- it's been about a year and a half since Wait to Pleasure -- along with songs from their two albums and EPs. Volume has always been in their arsenal, but No Joy seemed extra vociferous on Saturday and was easily the loudest set I've personally heard at BKNB. Perhaps they're just gearing up to compete in the loudness wars with soon-to-be tourmates Deafheaven. That tour kicks off in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 14 (sold out).

New York will get yet another chance to see No Joy as they'll play Mercury Lounge on September 15, the day after the MHOW show. That one is with their MTL pals Tonstartssbandht and tickets for the Mercury Lounge show go on sale Wednesday (9/3) at noon. Updated tour dates are listed below...
