PREMIERE: Brazilian Moneys Bones In My Skin video is a surreal search for a lost dog
Oct 23, 2014 11:20am | Chart Attack

Brazilian Money is the project of Garrett Johnson, an Edmonton native who's found himself in Montreal and crafting nutty lo-fi jangle pop and psychedelic buzz. It's a sound fit for summer bar fights in strange towns and winter dips in frozen toxic lakes. Along with Mac DeMarco, Walter TV, Homeshake and Alex Calder (the latter two backed him at Pop Montreal), Brazilian Money is a key figure in Montreal's rich subculture of insouciant-yet-irrepressible rock. A good place to start for new listeners is his self-titled record, a re-recording of songs he's built up over the past four years.

Below is the project's first video for "Bones In My Skin," directed by Johnson. It's an anxious and rowdy track that surfs on its guitar's wavering notes and what sounds like a bunch of haunted skeletons on backup vox. The clip stars Jean-Sebastien Audet of Un Blonde as a guy searching for his adventuring dog, who's played by Each Other's Brad Loughead (you should check out their bands too, by the way). The clip mixes the intensity of erotic thrillers with the tragedy of a missing pet, which sounds like a slight against God, and it kind of is. But in the best, most hilarious way possible. Hug your pets tight tonight, but keep your hands where I can see them.

According to Johnson, the finished clip only scratches the surface of his envisioned zoophilia (thanks to primadonna puppies). Read his account of th...



Interpol My Desire (Factory Floor Remix)
Oct 23, 2014 11:15am | StereoGum

New York’s Interpol and London’s Factory Floor are two bands with very different takes on retro-minded postpunk darkness. And yet they’ve come together, with Factory Floor transforming “My Desire,” the single from Interpol’s new El Pintor album, into a heaving and twinkling seven-minute goth-house assault. It sounds absolutely nothing like the original, to the point where I wonder if Factory Floor didn’t just make a new Factory Floor song and send it to Interpol when they asked for a remix. But that’s fine; Factory Floor songs are great. And speaking of Interpol, they appeared on the most recent episode of the BBC live-music show Later With Jools Holland (which also featured their former tourmates U2) to throb their way through “All The Rage Back Home.” Listen to the Factory Floor remix and watch the Jools performance below.

Song : Misun : Superstitions
Oct 23, 2014 11:06am | My Old Kentucky Blog

We have been telling you to look out for LA-based Misun for a while now. After what has been too long of a wait, they have announced the debut album Superstitions slated for November 11th. To go along with the announcement, they have offered up the title track, which might be there most accessible to date. From the first beat, the song hits you with a kaleidoscope of synths and vocal hooks by frontwoman Misun Wojcik. Having had the pleasure of seeing them live, you can easily see that she has the it factor to take this band far. Stream below.


The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Kelly Video
Oct 23, 2014 11:03am | StereoGum

Back in May, the Pains of Being Pure At Heart released their third studio album, Days Of Abandon. Now, to match their delightful brand of indie pop, the band releases an aesthetically pleasant, thematically light video for the album’s third track, “Kelly.” Directed by Art Boonparn, the video manipulates kaleidoscopic projections of color that swarm around the performing band members, creating beautiful transparent images and glimmering refractions. Check out the new video below, as well as the band’s tour dates.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart share glowing Kelly video watch
Oct 23, 2014 11:00am | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this year, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart released Days of Abandon, their third studio album and follow-up to 2011’s Belong. Now, the New York indie pop outfit has let loose the music video for “Kelly”, a standout sung by A Sunny Day in Glasgows own Jen Goma (as opposed to Pains frontman Kip Berman). Directed by Art Boonparn, this performance clip’s glowing, kaleidoscopic patterns correspond quite nicely with the track’s jangly breeziness.

Watch it below.

Bombay Bicycle Club, Luxley, Milo Greene @ Terminal 5: October 22, 2014
Oct 23, 2014 11:00am | CMJ

CMJ 2014 attendees who made the trip up to Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood were in for a whopper of a show at Terminal 5. The crowd was treated to a rousing set of joyous pop from Luxley and a slice of gorgeous and triumphant folk form Milo Greene before Bombay Bicycle Club took the stage. The band’s live show always delivers, and last night was no different, the band blazing through a collection of their most enduring and infectious material, old and new.

Beverly Yales Life Video
Oct 23, 2014 10:48am | StereoGum

Over the summer, Drew Citron’s indie-pop project Beverly (which started out as a duo with Frankie Rose) released the bright, engaging debut album Careers. After making videos for “Honey Do” and “Out On A Ride” and “All The Things,” they’ve got a new clip for the slow and stately “Yale’s Life.” In the video, we see Citron and her bandmates playing onstage and, for some reason, doing carpentry, as director Jim Larson gives them glamorous ’80s lighting and films them in ecstatic slo-mo, lending the whole affair a seedy, dreamlike feel. Watch it below.

Oct 23, 2014 10:37am | Brooklyn Vegan

Gruff Rhys @ BVSXSW 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)

Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys will release his new solo album, American Interior, in North America on November 4 and will be touring in support of it, including an NYC show at Baby's All Right on November 8 (tickets). He's just added a second NYC show, the next day (11/9) at Rough Trade. It's a noon matinee and is free with purchase of American Interior at Rough Trade between 11/4 and day of show.

in other news: as you may know, American Interior is also a film (as well as a book and mobile app), all based around Gruff retracing the steps of his distant relative John Evans as he traveled through North America in the 1790s. The film, co-directed by Dylan Goch, will make its NYC premiere at a free BrooklynVegan-presented screening on November 8 at Videology in Williamsburg. It's at 5 PM SHARP screening (Videology is just a few blocks from Baby's), and Gruff will be there to introduce the film. RSVP here; entrance based on capacity. Please arrive early. Hope to see you there!

In other SFA news, bassist Guto Pryce's other band, GULP, makes their NYC debut tonight (10/23, 6:45 PM) at Drom as part of CMJ. It's their only show this week.

Q&A: Radioheads Philip Selway On His New Album Weatherhouse
Oct 23, 2014 10:33am | StereoGum

Philip Selway is probably the last member of Radiohead anyone expected to go full singer-songwriter, but with sophomore solo release Weatherhouse, the longtime drummer affirms that he’s more than capable of stepping out from behind the kit. Recorded with Bat For Lashes touring member Quinta and Four Tet’s former Fridge bandmate Adem Ilhan, the album is more confident and ambitious than Selway’s promising 2010 debut Familial. It’s a pop record with an artful touch that further develops his tender emotional spin on the expansively moody sounds Radiohead fans know and love. On his day off from working on Radiohead’s latest album, Selway called from the UK to discuss Weatherhouse, his Tonight Show appearance with the Dap-Kings, and how one of his songs shares a name with one of this year’s biggest hits.

Circulatory System It Never Made A Sound
Oct 23, 2014 10:30am | StereoGum

Back in June, Circulatory System released their latest record, Mosaics Within Mosaics, and yesterday, the Elephant Six band shared a new track, “It Never Made A Sound,” which will be released by PIAPTK Records’ unique project, the CD/Vinyl Hybrid Series. The label specializes in limited-edition, unconventional vinyl pressings, their latest being a grooved CD that can be played on a turntable. “It Never Made A Sound” launches immediately into a beat easily likened to a helicopter’s stuttering drone, leading into a melody that harkens back to San Francisco circa 1967. It’s an undeniable throwback. Listen below.
