Letters From Bandcamp, Issue No. 29

In Letters From Bandcamp, we round up five of our new favorite Bandcamp discoveries in the hope that your friends cousins sister can finally get some buzz.

August is barreling down on us, but it’s still pretty cool for the end of July here on the east coast. Good thing too, because most of my picks today are vaguely chilly, as in chillwave, chillcore, chillfunk, chillharp, chili dog and the like. There’s only one way to find out what I’m talking about, and that’s by reading on.


Dylan Dawkins of Knoxville, TN, showed up on the FMLY Fest compilation tape, keeping things business casual with his melted ice synth-funk. Here he is again, still doing that.

Last week, teen computer whiz V e s a. dropped a pay-what-you-will five-track EP on Bandcamp. It’s called okaythishasnomeaning, but it does.

Morristown, NJ, trio Spowder must’ve watched a lot of My So-Called Life on Netflix before whipping their grunge flannels out from under their jorts and embracing their inner teenage Rayanne Graffs.

Bloc Party's Kele Okereke to release new solo album, 'Trick'

Death Valley Girls (feat. Patty Schemel) released debut, ready new EP, touring West Coast w/ Shonen Knife (dates, streams)
Jul 23, 2014 10:30am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Death Valley Girls dropped their debut, Street Venom, earlier this year as a cassette-only release on Burger. It's snarly, punky, attitude-heavy rock n' roll and you can stream it below. (The cassestte is sold out.) There weren't a lot of details about the band at the time -- no press pics, a cagey bio -- but turns out this is the new band from Patty Schemel (Hole, Upset). Her brother Larry is in the band too on guitar, with singer Bonnie Bloomgarden (who some may remember from NYC band The Witnesses; she's on the new King Tuff album too) and Rachel Orosco on bass. Death Valley Girls have a new EP, Electric High, out August 19 and we've got the premiere of its title track in this post.

The band will be on the road this fall, opening West Coast dates for Shonen Knife (who play NYC in September). Nothing for the East Coast yet, but stay tuned. All dates, along with streams, below...

Hemingway No Hard Feelings (Stereogum Premiere)
Jul 23, 2014 10:29am | StereoGum

We looked back at the “golden era” of emo this week, but let’s not forget that there’s still plenty of great music along those genre lines being made today. “No Hard Feelings” is from Hemingway’s upcoming debut album, Pretend To Care, and it screams ’90s in a good way. The Portland band is achingly honest, toeing the line of overly sentimental but never crossing it. It feels like the lines “You’re never coming over anymore/ I never wanna see you” have been sung a million times before, but the emotions are so universal, and Hemingway is endearing enough to make them work. Listen below.


Pharrell Williams Come Get It Bae (Feat. Miley Cyrus) Video
Jul 23, 2014 10:22am | StereoGum

Pharrell acts as a photographer at a fashion shoot in the video for “Come Get It Bae,” which is his next single from G I R L. Miley Cyrus, who contributed vocals to the song, also shows up about halfway through in a goofy outfit. And maybe I’m reading too much into things, but even though Pharrell ostensibly is singing as himself when he says, “I can see it the way you like/ I can do anything you need,” it still feels a little gross to see those words accompanied by girls dancing suggestively for the camera when we’re not so far removed from all of the Terry Richardson controversy, especially with Miley featured in the video. For someone who is usually pretty conscious of how he comes across, it seems like a bit of a misstep for Pharrell. Also for a video that starts with the words “Beauty has no expiration date” superimposed on the screen, it sure features a lot of twenty-somethings. Watch the video below.


Watch The Hold Steady Play Conan
Jul 23, 2014 10:17am | StereoGum

Since approximately 2008, Craig Finn’s been sounding less and less like the crazy drunk guy accosting you on the street and more and more like the singer of an actual rock band (and a huge one at that). But that doesn’t mean he can’t still bring the whole madman-poet thing, as anyone who’s seen the Hold Steady live can attest. Last night, they stopped by Conan to play “I Hope This Whole Thing Didn’t Frighten You,” the first single and opener from their great return-to-form album Teeth Dreams, and you can watch the video of Finn gesticulating wildly below.


Quebec to the Future: why Montréal is a Neverland for young artists
Jul 23, 2014 10:16am | Fact Magazine

This summer, FACT’s US team headed out to Montréal for Mutek 2014, and encountered a scene unlike any other in North America.

John Twells, Chris Kelly and Bryan McKay spoke to a selection of the next generation of Montréal artists – Woulg, Bataille Solaire, Marie Davidson and Magnanime – and asked them about what makes Montréal so unique and diverse, and how the scene has morphed so rapidly over the last few years. All four artists were highlighted at Mutek this year, and share very different views on the direction the city has taken, as free parties (the breeding ground for experimental music) have been stamped out and rent prices continue to escalate.

Kid Rock Subpoenaed To Produce Glass Dildo As Evidence In Insane Clown Posse Lawsuit
Jul 23, 2014 10:13am | StereoGum

Well, this is probably the classiest story on the music internet this morning. Andrea Pellegrini, a former publicist for the Insane Clown Posse, is suing the Detroit duo for sexual harassment, and among other allegations (e.g., the 2012 Gathering Of The Juggalos was “a living hell”) she claims that the former ICP and Psychopathic Records employee “Dirty Dan” Diamond tried to give her a glass dildo as a gift once. When she refused to accept it, Pellegrini claims that Diamond gave the, um, item to Kid Rock, who apparently still has possession of it. The Detroit Free Press reports that Pellegrini’s attorneys have subpoenaed Kid Rock, telling him to give up the glass dildo so that they can use it as evidence. Beyond the obvious troubling-if-true harrassment allegations, this whole thing raises some questions. For instance: Isn’t it bad etiquette to give someone a gift after someone else has already turned it down? Kid Rock appeared on ICP’s first album Carnival Of Carnage 22 years ago! Doesn’t he deserve his own glass dildo? Also, how’s Kid Rock even supposed to find the dildo in what’s sure to be an extensive glass dildo collection? I hope he’s got them all clearly labeled.

Hear an extract from JD Twitchs rejected Commonwealth Games mix: Im still raging about it
Jul 23, 2014 10:12am | Fact Magazine

Glasgow 2014 organisers “forgot” to tell Optimo don he’d been replaced by someone more famous.

With the opening ceremony for this year’s Commonwealth Games due to kick off in a matter of hours, here’s a snippet of what we could have heard soundtracking the events in Celtic Park.

The 12-minute clip is an extract from a mix by JD Twitch, one half of Glasgow’s Optimo crew and all-round DJ legend, which he was asked to put together by the Games’ organisers at the beginning of the year.

But after dropping most of his other projects to spend “a ridiculously long time” researching a mix that represented the Caribbean, African and Asian nations participating in the Games, Twitch submitted his first attempt and never heard back. According to Twitch, after weeks of emailing the organisers with no reply, he was playing a gig when another artist on the bill “sheepishly came over and told me he had taken over the job from me”.

“I’m still raging about it as when several weeks after that, they finally got in touch they informed me they had ‘forgotten’ to tell me i had been replaced!!” he adds.

Luckily for our inquisitive ears, he’s decided to make the Caribbean section of the mix available for streaming, and while the organisers’ restrictions meant he “couldn’t squeeze any of...

Jul 23, 2014 10:10am | Cosequence Of Sound

Following the release of The Nextwave Sessions EP last summer, Bloc Party announced an “indefinite hiatus”.

Song : Oyinda : Rush of You
Jul 23, 2014 10:02am | My Old Kentucky Blog

When you book your live debut at a festival like Lollapalooza before you have yet dropped an official single, it is safe to assume that you have some pretty heavy-hitters working on your behalf behind the scenes and also amazing talent. Thus is the case with London-raised, New York-based Nigerian singer Oyinda, who just unveiled her debut song “Rush of You”. The song is as polished as you would expect with out sounding manufactured and shows tremendous promise for this new face on the scene. Expect more from her in the coming months as she puts the finishing touches on her debut EP. Listen below.

Shura Just Once
Jul 23, 2014 10:00am | StereoGum

The fragile, beautiful debut single “Touch” put Moscow-via-London singer Shura on the map. Now her second single has arrived, and it’s described as a prequel to the first one. Like “Touch” before it, “Just Once” distills the essence of ’80s pop classics like “Time After Time” and “Like A Prayer” and gently breathes it into a misty funk groove not unlike what you’d hear on a Blood Orange record. And like “Touch,” “Just Once” has an instantly memorable chorus: “Have you ever been lost? We could get lost. I wanna get lost.” Get lost in it below.
