Ceremony, White Lung, Perfect Pussy & Sleepies played a wild show at NYU's E&L Auditorium (pics)

Ceremony / White Lung @ NYU - 12/5/13
Before NYU heads into finals week, they threw a semester-end show last night (that was also open to the public) in the Kimmel Center's E&L Auditorium with four killer punk bands -- Ceremony, White Lung, Perfect Pussy, and Sleepies. The tidy and spacious auditorium may not have been everyone's ideal way of seeing this show that sounds like it'd happen in a dingy DIY space, but what's more punk than putting on a cheap show in a school?
Brooklyn's Sleepies kicked things off with the tamest set of the night, but still a rippin' one that saw them going through tracks off their 2012 Weird Wild World LP that The Men's Ben Greenberg produced, and from the way they play you can tell why a member of The Men would work with them.
Up next was Perfect Pussy, fresh off their signing to Captured Tracks, which was announced earlier that day. There's been a lot of talk about Perfect Pussy lately, thanks in part to their solid EP, but their live show is really where it's at. Singer Meredith Graves is a total force and an entertaining performer, and though when someone with that level of charisma fronts a band the attention can be entirely on her, with Perfect Pussy that's not the case. The whole band goes nuts, even the dude whose job it is to make noise with his electronics, and they are LOUD. Don't m...

Secret Colours It Cant Be Simple (Stereogum Premiere)
Dec 6, 2013 12:58pm | StereoGum
Secret Colours are a Chicago combo that traces their sonic lineage from ’60s psychedelia and ’90s Britpop, which seems about right in light of the song they’re sharing today. After working with producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine, Califone) on their first two full-lengths, the band has teamed with Dan Duszunski for a pair of upcoming EPs (Positive Distraction Part I and Positive Distraction Part II) that sound distinctly punchier and brighter than the hazy psych-pop of this year’s Peach. On “It Can’t Be Simple,” a track from the first EP, staccato organ, snappy bass, and crisp drums combine to pack a wallop while singer/guitarist Tommy Evans spins a low-range vocal melody and unfurls evocative yet uncomplicated riffs.

CanCore: White Lungs Mish Way on her ten favourite past and present Canadian punk and hardcore bands
Dec 6, 2013 12:55pm | Chart Attack
Jerk Ward, including a young Stephen McBean
Watching Fucked Up cover classic GTA punk for the 35th anniversary of The Last Pogo got us hankering for the glory days of Canadian hardcore, so we reached out to the lead singer of one of the best punk bands the country has to offer, Mish Way of White Lung, and asked her for her five favourite Canadian punk bands of all time. She did us one better and told us who you should be going out to see right now, too. Read her excellent picks and explanations below, and enjoy.
When I first discovered the Dishrags I thought no front woman could have been as cool as Jade Blade. I still think this is true. Shes just stoic and she has this whole air about her thats effortlessly powerful. The Dishrags were the first all-female hardcore band from Vancouver (even though they really originated on the island). They were big in the late '70s scene and spread pretty far. Sam Sutherland does a great section on them in his book Perfect Youth: The Birth of Canadian Hardcore. The Dishrags reissued their anthology in 1997 in a retrospective titled Love/Hate. I suggest you pick it up or at least listen to I Dont Love You or Love Is Shit. (Vapid covered I Dont Love You but they never released it, which is a total shame because their cover was so good. I would post it here but they might kill me.)

The Hives Apologize For Dedicating Song About Stuff Blowing Up To Boston
Dec 6, 2013 12:44pm | StereoGum
Swedish garage-rockers the Hives are no strangers to lapses in taste; they did, after all, make this. But as Boston’s CBS Local reports, they went a bit far last night, when they opened for Pink at Boston’s TD Garden. Here’s a bit of stage patter from singer Pelle Almqvist: “This song’s for everyone in Boston. It’s about stuff blowing up. Its called ’Tick, Tick, Boom.’” Boston, of course, has faced recent tragedy in the form of stuff blowing up, and Almqvist quickly issued an apology on the band’s Facebook page:
Listen to Michael Jacksons isolated vocals for Man in the Mirror
Dec 6, 2013 12:42pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Michael Jackson has been pretty busy since his death in June 2009, thanks to a litany of posthumous projects. Whether it’s Timbaland’s mysterious project with L.A. Reid, the long-buried duet with Freddie Mercury, or the atrocious Justin Bieber collabo “Slave 2 The Rhythm”, money-hungry insiders continue to trample on his grave. To be fair, it’s not that difficult to see their reasoning: Jackson’s death has left a gaping hole in the industry, and it’s only natural they try to fill it with whatever echoes of the King they can.
Fortunately for them, there’s still plenty of his legacy to uncover online. Case in point, this isolated vocal track of “Man in the Mirror”, a song we ranked as the fourth best of all-time. Without the percussive reverb or the layers of harmonies, the nuances of Jackson’s performance become utterly clear. He sounds gritty, intense, and almost brooding. What truly stands out, though, is his penchant for grunts and yelp, which now display a raw emotionality that further enhances the song’s tale of social outrage and existential uncertainty. Listen below.
R. Kelly making more episodes of "Trapped in the Closet," gave unique performances on 'Arsenio' & 'Kimmel' this week (watch)
Dec 6, 2013 12:30pm | Brooklyn Vegan
R. Kelly drops his Black Panties album next week (12/10) and has been a flurry activity, stopping by late night talk shows this week for some very weird, very R. Kelly moments. His appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday (12/4) featured him singing a medley of songs while he literally played a woman like a violin with an appearance from 2 Chainz, then British actor Benedict Cumberbatch (aka Sherlock or Khan) gave a dramatic reading of the lyrics to "Genius."
Then last night (12/5) on Arsenio, he performed his Nelson Mandela tribute, "Soldier's Heart," and then performed "Shut Up" and made up songs based on the audience questions. You can watch the Arsenio and Kimmel performances below.
Meanwhile, the news we've all been waiting for. There will be more episodes of "Trapped in the Closet" coming in 2014 that will air on IFC. No specifics on those yet, but you can play catch-up on his labyrinthine musical soap opera on Saturday (12/7) as IFC will air all 33 episodes starting at 5:15 PM, or you can watch them all online now.

Premiere: Laurel Halo remixes Factory Floors Turn It Up
Dec 6, 2013 12:18pm | Fact Magazine
DFA meets Hyperdub on this banging remix.
In his review of Factory Floor‘s eponymous debut, John Calvert described ‘Turn It Up’ as “arguably the lightest sound that Factory Floor have produced thus far” and a “shock for those drawn to the trio in the past for their industrial stylings.”
Perhaps with that in mind, Laurel Halo has turned ‘Turn It Up’ into a heavy slab of industrial-tinged techno with the same balance of ambience and percussion that she displayed on her Chance of Rain LP.
Stream the remix below; the video for the original follows.
