Zammuto IO Video
Aug 20, 2014 3:06pm | StereoGum

Earlier this month, Zammuto released the new single “IO,” from his upcoming album Anchor. Now he’s got a video for the song, which shows us the construction of a massive catapult and then all of the things thrown from it. Those things include the camera at some points, which leads to some pretty cool — and dizzying — shots. Watch it below.


Watch: White Fence Like That Video
Aug 20, 2014 3:06pm | CMJ

Los Angeles psych-pop project White Fence has just released its first ever official music video. The main project of prolific singer/songwriter Tim Presley, White Fence is known for churning out one lo-fi gem after another, and Like That is surely one of his strongest. The song, which recalls the finest moments of the early days of the Who or the Kinks, comes from White Fence’s fifth LP, For The Recently Found Innocent, released earlier this summer on Drag City. The music video for Like That takes the album’s title and the song’s tongue-in-cheek message literally, creating a compact and darkly entertaining prison narrative for Presley, who, throughout the video, can’t seem to catch a break. Check out the video alongside the band’s upcoming tour dates, below.

Tour Dates For White Fence:
10/09 – San Francisco, CA – Rickshaw Stop
10/13 – Brooklyn, NY – Baby’s All Right ^*
10/14 – Allston, MA – Great Scott ^*
10/15 – Montreal, QC – Il Motore *

CunninLynguists' new album art (not Smash Mouth's)

Kentucky rap crew CunninLynguists followed 2011's Oneirology LP earlier this year with a new mixtape. It's the third in their Strange Journey mixtape series, and thus titled Strange Journey Volume Three. It's got a handful of great guests including Del The Funy Homosapien, Aesop Rock, Murs, Blu, Psalm One and Masta Ace. This fall, they'll be heading out on tour in support of the release with J-Live (who's also on the mixtape), stopping in NYC to play The Studio at Webster Hall on November 13. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All tour dates are listed, with a stream of Strange Journey Volume Three, below...

Trash Talk The Great Escape Video
Aug 20, 2014 2:54pm | StereoGum

Sacramento hardcore band Trash Talk put out their uncompromising new album, No Peace, a few months ago. In the trippy, violent, animated new video for album cut “The Great Escape,” three cartoon delinquents who look kinda like Trash Talk swipe some psychedelic Satan-juice from a convenience store (naturally) and endure one hell of a bad trip. Jim Dirschberger — previously responsible for another ridiculous cartoon hallucination of a video for Trash Talk — directs. Watch it below.


The 10 Richest Bassists in Music
Aug 20, 2014 2:47pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Bassists may not receive the appreciation or the spotlight the same way frontmen and guitarists do in fact, theyre often the butt of many a joke but that doesnt mean theyre not making major bank.

The Richest has published a list of the 10 wealthiest bassist in music, and while the names probably won’t surprise you, their placement might. Of course, the top spot is a given: Paul McCartney, perhaps the most famous bassist of all-time, is worth $1.2 billion, some $900 million more than the next richest. The Police’s Sting and KISS’ Gene Simmons are both worth an estimated $300 million and, thus, tied for second.

Despite having the highest-grossing tour of all-time, Roger Waters peaks at No. 4 with a net worth of $270. He’s followed by U2’s Adam Clayton and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea. At No. 7, Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones is reportedly worth $80 million, which seems a little low given the band’s place in rock history and constant reissues. The same can also be said about Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, who places behind No Doubt’s Tony Kanal.

Check out the full list below.

01. Paul McCartney – $1.2 billion
02. Sting – $300 million
02. Gene Simmons (KISS) – $300 million
04. Roger Waters – $270 million
05. Adam Clayton (U2) – $150 million
06. Flea – $115 million
07. John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) – $80 million

Listen: Yung Bae Sailor Babe

Hey, so just a few hours ago we featured future funk boy Yung Bae in our Letters From Bandcamp column, and, as sonic luck would have it, he dropped a new track just minutes ago. It’s not clear if Sailor Babe is the “HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT” Yung Bae hinted at earlier today (probably not), but it’s a hugely nice way to plow through your Wednesday. Blaring freak-dance horns, oddball pop samples and a thick soda syrup spoonful of Sailor Moon adoration—all for you and your lovers. Check it out below.

Watch: White Fence go to jail in video for Like That
Aug 20, 2014 2:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

In his many years as a solo act, San Francisco psych rocker Tim Presley, aka White Fence, has never before released a music video. (And if youve heard enough of his plentiful catalog, theres a bevy of burned-out tracks that deserve their own visuals.) Now, in support of his newly released Drag City debut For The Recently Found Innocent, Presley finally enters the realm of moving pictures with a clip for “Like That”.

So, does Presley opt for champagne showers and dope sports cars, or an animated clip involving foul-mouthed marsupials? Nope, he gets himself hauled off to jail! The ending is a bit of a metaphysical hullabaloo, but the message is clear: jail is terrible, so avoid it at all costs by being good and decent. Or, just dont get caught.

Watch it below.

Cold Specks shares new song A Formal Invitation, announces tour dates
Aug 20, 2014 2:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Canadian “doom soul” musician Al Spx, aka Cold Specks, has already previewed half of the 10 tracks that comprise her sophomore album, Neuroplasticity. If you need a refresher, theres the simmering lead single “Absisto”; the surprisingly jaunty “Bodies at Bay”; the meditative “Old Knives”; the ghostly “A Broken Memory”, and the Michael Gira-assisted “Exit Plan”. Today, she returns with yet another preview in “A Formal Invitation”.

Behind Spxs characteristically sturdy and soulful alto, “A Formal Invitation” glistens with gloomy, spaced-out guitars that trudge along in an almost dirge-like manner. Following the understated intro, cymbals and ominous organ tones crash around her voice, giving the arrangement an almost frightening air of drama. By the end, soothing horns soften the dissonance, creating a jarringly jazzy backdrop to Spxs rather ominous send-off, “Ill smother you in silence until you choke.” Its both spooky and stunning, and one of the more audacious tracks of Neuroplasticity.

Listen in below.

Neuroplasticity is due out August 26th via Mute Records. Pre-orders are ongoing.

Neuroplasticity Tracklist:
01. A Broken Memory
02. Bodies at Bay
03. Old Knives
04. A Quiet Chill
05. Exit Plan
06. Let Loose The Dogs
07. Absisto

Listen: Evy Jane Nothing So Great

Evy Jane (the duo of Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein) is dropping a new EP, Closer, at the end of August, and at this point we’ve heard three of the record’s four tracks. First there was the watery, scratched vinyl title track, then the rippling daydream Worry Heart, and today, Nothing So Great.

The track builds slowly, maintaining a cool flatline as Mason winds her whispered vocals around heavy organ synths, creating something mesmerizing, like the nervous feeling of holding something that could break at any moment. Listen to Nothing So Great and check out the Closer EP tracklist below.

Tracklist For Closer:
01. Closer
02. Nothing So Great
03. Sosoft
04. Worry Heart

Mixtape Of The Week: Mick Jenkins The Water[s]
Aug 20, 2014 1:56pm | StereoGum

Rap is a personal thing, and those of us who listen to the stuff all have our own particular sets of likes and dislikes. They vary from one listener to the next, and there’s no such thing as a right way to listen to the music, even if, as we’re listening, it sometimes seems like the things we don’t like are obviously shit. With that in mind, here are a few of my rap pet peeves: Poetry-slam symbolism. Rigid and upright syllable-cramming. Soft drum sounds. Wobbly Fender Rhodes. Throwaway lines that make fun of rappers who the rapper perceives to be dumb, especially sour-grapes lines about more-famous rappers. Vague, amorphous lyrics about how messed up the world is. That’s the shit I don’t like. I mention all these things because The Water[s], the second mixtape from the young Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins, is guilty of every last one of them. The Water[s] is total honor-student rap, rap that seems to emanate from the head as much as the heart, rap that seems aimed directly at the sort of rap fans who regard Chief Keef as a horseman of the apocalypse. I resisted it, hard. But it’s good. It’s really good.


Noisemakers: Elephant Stone performs Motherless Child on sitar
Aug 20, 2014 1:54pm | Chart Attack
Noisemakers captures performances by our favourite emerging artists, off-stage and up-close.

Elephant Stone are on the verge of releasing their new album The Three Poisons, and we knew we wanted to go somewhere special to record a live performance from the Montreal psych-pop standouts. Our brainstorming sessions didn't produce what we wanted, so we packed our camera/audio gear and a sitar, walked into our wardrobe, and this is where we landed.

We don't know exactly where it was and we still don't know how we got back home, but that doesn't matter. What matters is this incredible stripped-down version of "Motherless Child (Love's Not For War)" performed by Rishi Dhir, Elephant Stone's resident sitarist to the stars (Beck, The Black Angels and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, to name a few).

Having found ourselves in this new world, we went exploring and had a run-in with Garfield who seemed to be silently protesting for chemtrail justice. He couldn't be reached for comment, so we have no further words on the matter.

Elephant Stone's The Three Poisons will be released August 25th via Hidden Pony Records. Pre-order it here.
