L.A. Witch share "Kill My Baby Tonight" from forthcoming album, touring after Levitation Fest (dates, stream)
May 5, 2015 10:26am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis


With a name that almost sounds like it was chosen on purpose to enrage certain people, trio L.A. Witch are indeed from Los Angeles, and sport a dark bluesy sound that recalls a pitch-black Widowspeak or, yes, BRMC or J-A-U-know-what. But the band's music is also heavy on smoky attitude which you 100% need with this kind of thing.
L.A Witch, who I wrote about last September (and quoted myself above), will release their new album later this year but you can get a taste right now via smoldering, sultry first single "Kill My Baby Tonight." That makes its premiere in this post and you can stream it below.

The trio will be in Austin this weekend for Levitation Fest, playing Saturday (5/9) in the Elevation Amphitheatre. After that, LA Witch will be on tour for most of May. No shows on the East Coast unfortunately but all dates are listed below...

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin releasing 'The High Country,' touring (dates, video, stream)
May 5, 2015 10:17am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Missouri indie pop crew Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin will follow 2013's Fly By Wire with their fifth album, The High Country, on June 2 via longtime label home Polyvinyl Records. The album's two singles have them cranking up the distortion and going a little further into Weezer territory than ever before. Maybe they learned a thing or two from Matt Sharp at their recent shows with The Rentals? Listen for yourself/watch a video below.

The band will be touring after the album's release, hitting NYC on August 1 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/8) at 10 AM.

All dates are listed, with the new songs, below...

Song : Ducktails :
May 5, 2015 10:16am | My Old Kentucky Blog

We are really enjoying the ’70’s-inflicted soft-rock touches that are coming out of music lately. “Headbanging In The Mirror”, the new song from Real Estate’s Matt Mondanile Ducktails project falls in line with this trend. Gentle vocal delivery mixed with precise and melodic instrumentation permeate throughout. It will appear on the just announced St. Catherine LP out on July 254th via Domino. Listen below.


Julian Casablancas Wants You To Watch This New Version Of Inheaven
May 5, 2015 10:15am | StereoGum
Inheaven are a London band whose music immediately gripped me -- I love that feeling. Their debut single "Regeneration" is steeped in snarled aggression and shattering moments of guitar-driven choruses that rarely work at all anymore. Inheaven's worked. We premiered their VCR-blender video for "Regeneration" and then came the slug-slime crawl of B-side … More »

Ducktails announces new album, St. Cathedral, shares
May 5, 2015 10:10am | Cosequence Of Sound

Grab the valium and set up your beach chairs, Real Estate guitarist Matt Mondanile, aka Ducktails, is back with a new album. St. Cathedral, his fifth studio effort and follow-up to 2013’s The Flower Lane, was produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, FIDLAR) and features Julia Holter, James Ferraro, Chris Votek, and Andrew Tholl. It hits stores July 24th via Domino.

Mondanile recorded the album over the last year throughout Berlin, Los Angeles, and New York. That comes across in the ghostly album cover, which captures what appears to be an empty mausoleum. First single “Headbanging in the Afternoon” is anything but ghoulish, however, as it’s more of a meditative stroll akin to Kurt Vile and/or Spandau Ballet. Listen below.

St. Cathedral Tracklist:
01. The Disney Afternoon
02. Headbanging in the Mirror
03. Into the Sky
04. Heaven’s Room
05. St. Catherine
06. The Laughing Woman
07. Surreal Exposure
08. Church
09. Medieval
10. Krumme Lanke
11. Reprise

Mondanile will also hit the road later this month.

Ducktails 2015 Tour Dates:
05/26 – Amsterdam, NL @ Paradiso
05/27 – Paris, FR @ La Maroquinerie
05/28 – Utrecht, NL @ Ekko
05/29 – Berlin, DE @ Marie Antoinette
05/30 – Neustreiltz, DE @ Immergut Festival

J Fernandez @ Bowery Electric: May 1, 2015
May 5, 2015 9:59am | CMJ


On May Day night, Chicago-based musician J Fernandez brought swanky tones and stellar musical prowess to the cavern-like environs of Bowery Electric. The festivities began with Italy’s Clustersun, who kicked into a round of ambient, expressive tunes off of their debut album, Out Of Your Ego. They were followed by Lazy Queen from Brooklyn who sauntered through a set of catchy, energetic tunes straight out your best friend’s garage. When singer Henrik Soberg’s mic cut out during their screaming grand finale, the Bowery Electric crew was nice enough to let them play that fabled “one more song,” a momentary act of kindness that served as a solid segue into the peaceful stylings of J Fernandez.

When J Fernandez took to the stage, the shadowy crowd, long since beyond happy hour, had relaxed into the Friday night fog. The set combined older tracks with previews from the forthcoming release Many Levels Of Laughter (out June 9 on Joyful Noise Recordings). Combining a ’60s groove with the introspective notions of a mid-1990s Lou Barlow, the Windy City band played with such a brilliant cleanliness, it was as if they’d been musical comrades since pre-school. Fernandez himself layered the complexity of his sounds with a gesture of simplicity, smiling as he asked the sound guy if the ceiling’s disco ball could be turned on. Though it turned out that the decoration was kaput, that realization did not da...

Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black create shot-for-shot remake of Extreme
May 5, 2015 9:55am | Cosequence Of Sound

In 1991, glam rockers Extreme turned in their biggest hit, but it wasn’t leather-jacket, bright-lights guitar shredder. No, it was a patterned-shirt, black-and-white acoustic ballad. Together with its accompanying video, the track swept the nation in what is now looked upon as one of the most gloriously cheesy moments in chart history. Last night, Jimmy Fallon teamed with Jack Black paid homage to the classic clip in the best way possible: a shot-for-shot remake.

The comedic duo portray their prospective roles of singer Gary Cherone and guitarist Nuno Bettencourt to a T, with Black donning the former’s roomy white shirt and Fallon painting a few fingernails just like the latter. Moments from the originally are perfectly recreated, like the guy cuddling with the dog and raising his lighter, or the subtle turn of a magazine page.

Check out the perfection below, followed by the original for comparison.

Song : Astronauts, etc. :
May 5, 2015 9:51am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Toro Y Moi keyboardist Anthony Ferraro and his project Astronauts, etc. is starting to really find a groove as of late. In March, he shared retro blue-eyed soul “I Know”, now we have the tranquil “No Justice”. His falsetto over the calculated guitar chords ever-so-gently caresses with just a hint of coolness pulling both emotions of happiness and sadness through hitting the perfect note. Give it a listen below.
