Watch Odd Futures Scared Straight Parody
Jul 29, 2014 3:31pm | StereoGum
In a new clip from Loiter Squad, Odd Future’s sketch series for Adult Swim, Earl Sweatshirt plays a prisoner in a Scared Straight-style program. The results are bizarre — for example, he brags to kids that he was already running a Fortune 500 company at 12 years old. Tyler, The Creator plays one of the kids. Watch it below.
Listen: Purling Hiss new song Learning Slowly
Jul 29, 2014 3:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Psych-punk outfit Purling Hiss will release their latest album, Weirdon, on September 23rd via Drag City. According to a press release, the 11-track album finds the band venturing deeper into their own pop inspirations, making for their” fastest and catchiest songs in the abiding images of punk and psychedelia.” Today, were getting our first taste of a poppier Purling Hiss with “Learning Slowly.”
The track highlights frontman Mike Polizzes guitar prowess, as he furiously delivers prolonged fuzz jams and infectious riffs with equal abandon. Against the upbeat, melodic instrumentation, Polizze sings with an apathetic tone that would make even the New York Dolls Johnny Thunders vehemently proud (or whatever). Though heavy on the layers of brutal distortion and cutting angst, the track isnt without a sense of quirky charm and surprising universality.
Listen in below:
Purling Hiss Learning Slowly
Jul 29, 2014 3:26pm | StereoGum
The longtime Philly lo-fi bashers Purling Hiss are getting ready to release a new album called Weirdon, and at least based on the early track “Learning Slowly,” the album may be the most accessible work of the band’s career. “Learning Slowly” is piled with rickety drums and wildly overlapping guitar leads, but it’s also a big and triumphant and immediate rock song, and there’s something fundamentally catchy about its sense of propulsion. Listen to it below.

Prurient, Clay Rendering, Lussuria & more playing Hospital Productions tribute to Euronymous of Mayhem in NYC
Jul 29, 2014 3:05pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Wyatt Marshall
Prurient at Saint Vitus in January (more by
NYC label Hospital Productions is hosting a special, non-Wednesday, early (8PM) Nothing Changes party at Home Sweet Home on Sunday, August 10 in mark of the 21st anniversary of the death of Euronymous of the forerunning Norwegian black metal band Mayhem, who was notoriously killed by Varg Vikernes of Burzum. Prurient, Clay Rendering, Lussuria, Dual Action, Sandness and DJ Akitsa (of Montreal black metal band Akitsa) will perform. That's a pretty good smattering of Hospital heavyweights, touching on ambient and noise, and it's a relief for NYC area people who didn't get the chance to catch the "Summer Always Summer" tour with Clay Rendering, Lussuria, and Dual Action, which skipped the area.
Without having to make a case for links between noise/PE and black metal, Hospital Productions has many direct ties to black metal, having released records by Behexen, Akitsa and Dominick Fernow's own Ash Pool, to name a few, and not to mention that the Hospital store was a trove of black metal obscurities. Also noteworthy is the relatively recent news that Prurient signed to the influential metal label Profound Lore, and Prurient's next album will be produced by Arthur Rizk, who has worked with Power Trip in the past.<...
Album Of The Week: Jenny Lewis The Voyager
Jul 29, 2014 3:01pm | StereoGum
Track five on the new Jenny Lewis album starts like this: “When I turned 16, I was furious and reckless / Got a Chelsea girl haircut and a plane ticket to Paris.” The song is about meeting another American girl over there and sort-of/kind-of falling in love: “How could I resist her? / I had longed for a big sister / And I wanted to kiss her, but I hadn’t the nerve.” Later in the song, Lewis ends up in a threesome with that girl and with a doofy American songwriter that her soulmate was obsessed with, figuring this would be the only way to get with her at all. Then, the two girls separate and never see each other again. The name of the song is “Late Bloomer,” and it doesn’t even seem to be ironic. (It’s something that Nancy, the other girl, calls Lewis, or the narrator who Lewis is pretending to be, or whatever.) It all seems terribly glamorous, the idea that you could end up in a Parisian three-way at 16 and still think of yourself as a late bloomer. But the song isn’t about the glamor of its story. It’s about feeling lost, attaching yourself to someone and about doing everything you can to hold on to that person, and about losing touch with that person anyway. It’s a song about being lost. And that’s what we get with The Voyager, the new album: A series of finely observed, beautifully recorded, impossibly glamorous songs about being lost.

Paperwhite Take Me Back
Jul 29, 2014 2:58pm | StereoGum
Brooklyn sister-brother duo Paperwhite, aka Katie & Ben Marshall, offer an immensely approachable take on synthpop — so approachable that new single “Take Me Back” could be inserted into the soundtrack of most early ’90s teen movies and no one would be the wiser. The song brims with a confidence that belies its simple, self-explanatory subject matter. It’ll brighten your afternoon, so stream it below.
Kevin Morby We Did It All Wrong
Jul 29, 2014 2:52pm | StereoGum
Kevin Morby is best known for his work with the Babies and Woods, but he’s been releasing more music under his own name recently, beginning with last year’s Harlem River. We’ve already heard “My Name” from his new 7″ and now here’s the flip side of that release. “We Did It All Wrong” is the kind of quiet, contemplative indie folk that Morby does best. Listen below.
Virgin Mobile Freefest Not Returning This Year
Jul 29, 2014 2:50pm | StereoGum
Virgin Mobile Freefest has graced Baltimore’s Merriweather Post Pavilion for the past five years and has made a name for itself by booking a lot of indie’s biggest acts, but more importantly, it’s been notable because it’s done so while being completely free. The fest has been a part of the area even longer, having started back in 2006 (at which point you had to pay to get in). According to a statement issued by Virgin, the festival will not be returning this year. Instead, the company will be making a donation directly to local homeless shelter the Sasha Bruce RE*Generation House, rather than giving the proceeds to the charity after the event. “The Freefest was this fantastic product of a crossroads of [Virgin Group founder Richard] Branson and some very creative people at Virgin. The mixture got shaken up every year, and it always settled at the last possible moment for that year. That was part of the spontaneous magic that everyone could pick up on I think,” festival producer Seth Hurwitz said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the pieces are not all there right now with Virgin. Whether they are again who knows. But the Freefest concept is fantastic and we are exploring options to continue it at Merriweather.” Read the full statement from Virgin below.
Simian Mobile Disco Dervish
Jul 29, 2014 2:48pm | StereoGum
Earlier this year, Simian Mobile Disco announced their plans to strip their dance music to its rawest elements — their new album, Whorl, would be recorded live on modular synth … in the desert. They’ve already released the album’s first single, “Tangents,” and now you can hear the heady grooves of “Dervish,” a track that SMD have identified as being one of the only overtly dance-oriented tracks on the upcoming album. Check it out.

Kelly Crisp and Ivan Howard, aka The Rosebuds, will release their latest studio album, Sand + Silence, on August 5th via their new label Western Vinyl. In anticipation, its streaming in full at Pitchfork.

On the LP, Vernon plays keyboards alongside a handful of other contributors, including his Bon Iver bandmate Matt McCaughan on drums and Sylvan Essos Nick Sanborn on bass.
The album was preceded by the singles “In My Teeth”, the Vernon-featuring “Blue Eyes”, and “Esse Quam Videri”, which draws its title from the offcial motto of North Carolina. Listen to the latter below.
