Apr 16, 2014 11:34am | StereoGum

Queens Of The Stone Age put on a killer live show — in fact, we just listed them as one of the best parts of Coachella last week. Last night Josh Homme and company stopped by the Keller Auditorium in Portland to play a massive 20-plus-song setlist, touching on many tracks from their recent album Like Clockwork. The show opened with Moistboyz, once the side project of Dean Ween, but in light of Ween’s breakup and the shedding of his stage name, now the main project of Mickey Melchiondo. We sent our photographer Colin McLaughlin to capture the entire performance. Check out the gallery above, and the set list below. Be sure to read our ranking of Josh Homme’s various albums from Worst to Best (and look at Ween’ while you’re at it).


AC/DC not finished, Malcolm Young taking a break though
Apr 16, 2014 11:32am | Brooklyn Vegan

Yesterday rumors about the end of AC/DC swept around the world and across the internet. Today AC/DC cleared the air:

After forty years of life dedicated to AC/DC, guitarist and founding member Malcolm Young is taking a break from the band due to ill health. Malcolm would like to thank the group's diehard legions of fans worldwide for their never-ending love and support.

In light of this news, AC/DC asks that Malcolm and his family's privacy be respected during this time. The band will continue to make music.

Get well soon Malcolm!

Premiere: hear To Rococo Rots first new track in five years
Apr 16, 2014 11:31am | Fact Magazine

Palindromic electronica boffins To Rococo Rot stick their heads above the parapet.

Eight studio albums deep into their career, the German three-piece are pretty much the dons of brittle, digitally-enhanced post-rock. On their very best records (see 1999′s delicate The Amateur View), they strike a balance between Oval’s forensic electronics, and the widescreen vistas of older German forbears (Ashra Tempel, Cluster, et al).

We’re pleased to say we now have a stream of the band’s first new track in half a decade, ‘Pro Model’. True to form, it’s a gently groovy piece of electronica, setting stannic synth tones over a chugging motorik beat. Click below to listen.

Listen: Eternal Summers Goodnight Goodbye
Apr 16, 2014 11:10am | CMJ

Eternal Summers – Photo by Faith Silva

This Saturday, April 19, is Record Store Day. There are a lot of cool releases coming out that day, but one extra-exciting release is the Kanine Records comp, Non-Violent Femmes, featuring new tracks from female-fronted bands like Speedy Ortiz, Joanna Gruesome, Bleeding Rainbow and more. Today, the label shared a tune from the dream-pop trio Eternal Summers, Goodnight Goodbye.

The track goes heavy on the instrumentation, featuring a long, building intro that sets you up for frontwoman Nicole Yun’s delicate twee-drawl. It’s a fun, woozy song that has us wondering what other gems we’ll discover on the compilation. Listen to Goodnight Goodbye and check out the Non-Violent Femmes tracklist below.

Tracklist For Non-Violent Femmes:
01. Speedy Ortiz – “No Below” (Ocean Shitty Demo)
02. Flowers – “All I Want”
03. Eternal Summers – “Goodnight Goodbye”
04. TEEN – “Sunday 5″
05. Beach Day – “All My Friends Were Punks”

Lust For Youth overdress for their tour of Hollywood in Illume music video
Apr 16, 2014 11:05am | Chart Attack

Hollywood, now a den of sin and Obamacare, used to have values. In their new music video for "Illume," Lust For Youth play suited-up relics of that more glamorous and refined time, when communists were actually discouraged and you didn't have to worry about seeing Queen Latifah in every single movie, right?? Pursued by a goth cowboy, the sullen screen idols (and newly designed cocktail pop pros) tour the city's backstreets like lost despots trying to find their way back to the projector they crawled out of.

Lust For Youth's new album International is out June 10 via Sacred Bones; pre-order it here.

Florida-born, L.A.-based experimental pop outfit Hundred Waters will release a new album on May 27th via Skrillex’s label OWSLA. Entitled The Moon Rang Like a Bell, the 12-track effort includes previous singles “Down from the Rafters” and “Cavity”, as well as the just-revealed track, “XTalk”.

Like its predecessors, “XTalk” boasts the group’s brand of glitchy, darkly shaded, yet stunning pop. Anchored by frontwoman Nicole Miglis’ siren-like voice, the song’s stuttering percussion and glimmering pianos make for a hypnotic track.

Below, check out its accompanying lyric video (via Pitchfork).

The Moon Rang Like a Bell Tracklist:
01. Show Me Love
02. Murmurs
03. Cavity
04. Out Alee
05. Innocent
06. Broken Blue

Dubbing Is A Must: A Beginners Guide To Jamaicas Most Influential Genre
Apr 16, 2014 10:46am | Fact Magazine

From drone to dubstep, the values and techniques of dub are more present than ever in the music we consume every day. Yet, for many, dub appears an impenetrable genre – the sort of thing we know we should be into, but we don’t quite know where to start with. That’s why we asked David Katz – renowned reggae historian, photographer and more – to write us the Beginner’s Guide to Dub, with quotes from Bunny Lee, Niney the Observer, Glen Brown, Adrian Sherwood, Dennis Alcapone, Roy Cousins and more. We’ve also compiled an accompanying playlist on the last page of this article.

During the last 60 years, Jamaican popular music has rarely stood still, thriving on the innovations of a handful of committed practitioners that continually force the music into new directions. Although it would take time for foreigners to clock the music emanating from this Caribbean island, and even longer for them to comprehend it, there is ample proof that Jamaica has exercised a disproportionate influence on the musical practices of the outside world. And in recent times, dub has proven to be the most influential reggae sub-genre of all.

Without the dub invention pioneered by an elite coterie of Jamaican recording engineers and record producers, rap would never have become the worlds leading form of popular culture; ambient, jungle, house, garage, grime and numerous other types of technologically-driven dance...

Clutch releasing triple deluxe version of 'Earth Rocker' (watch them play "D.C. Sound Attack!" from the live DVD)
Apr 16, 2014 10:42am | Brooklyn Vegan

Stoner rock vets Clutch released their newest album, Earth Rocker, last year, and on June 10 they're giving it a triple deluxe reissue via Weathermaker Music. The new version includes the full album plus new songs "Night Hag" and "Scavengers," an "Earth Rocker Live" CD of the album being performed live, and a "Live In Denver" DVD of the band's 11/14/13 show at Ogden Theatre. We're premiering a clip of the band playing Earth Rocker track "D.C. Sound Attack!" from the DVD. Given the song, keep an eye out for Neil Fallon's shirt repping DC's 9:30 Club, a place the Maryland band has played many times.

The album can be pre-ordered here. Watch the new video below...

Chet Faker 1998 Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Apr 16, 2014 10:40am | StereoGum

This week marks the release of Built On Glass, the full-length debut from Melbourne singer-producer Chet Faker. With the album’s unveiling comes the video for single “1998,” an immensely appealing blend of airy club music, ’80s pop, and melancholy singer-songwriter sounds. The song is superb, and its video is equally intriguing. Director Domenico Bartolo guides illustrations by Grace Lee through a series of metamorphoses inspired by Keith Haring, ’80s club culture, and putting one foot in front of the other in the aftermath of a failed relationship. Just keep pressing on, it seems to imply — and indeed you should proceed forward to watch this video posthaste.


Watch: Parquet Courts Sunbathing Animal Video
Apr 16, 2014 10:35am | CMJ

Today, the Brooklyn punkers Parquet Courts released a new video for their dizzying track, Sunbathing Animal, which we heard earlier this month. The video, according to Noisey, pays homage to The Replacements’ classic non-video for Bastards Of Young. With the quick flashes of smiley faces and words, it almost feels like that scene in Fight Club where Brad Pitt plays a movie for a bunch of kids and flashes a penis on the screen so that it’s barely noticeable. Thankfully, no genitals are featured in Sunbathing Animal. It just features, well, a sunbathing animal.

Sunbathing Animal will be out June 3 via Whats Your Rupture? and Mom + Pop. In other cool Paquet Courts news, the band will be debuting a new song on Late Night With Seth Meyers on April 30. Until then, sunbathe like an animal below.

The post Watch: Parquet Courts – “Sunbathing Animal” Video appeared first on CMJ.

Aaron Paul wore the Pope bobblehead during Arcade Fires Coachella performance
Apr 16, 2014 10:35am | Cosequence Of Sound

Turns out Debbie Harry wasn’t the only guest during Arcade Fires headlining spot at Coachella last weekend. Much like when Julian Casablancas snuck onstage under Win Butler’s bobblehead mask at Lollapalooza Chile, Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul hid behind the giant visage of Pope Francis in Indio (via ArcadeFireTube).

The Pope papier-mâché head made its debut in Austin earlier this month alongside a President Obama mask, but it wasn’t until Arcade Fire’s festival-highlighting set at Coachella that Jesse Pinkman himself donned the disguise. Paul revealed his presence via Instagram, though failed to mention who was under the Obama head. With his current leading role in Broadway’s All the Way, we’re guessing it wasn’t Bryan Cranston.

Courtney Barnett hosts a monster party in Anonymous Club music video
Apr 16, 2014 10:34am | Chart Attack

Courtney Barnett's trance-inducing indie nebula, "Anonymous Club,"  is about her ideal get-together. No phones or anxieties. If there are any awkward pauses, it will be because you had too much fun up front and didn't save enough for the entire evening. The song's music video, animated by Celeste Potter, is not that gathering. Charming monsters are trapped in a black-and-white world filled with abstract shapes, their eyes (or eye) are (/is) filled with tears, and they puke up other, also ennui-stricken creatures. Next time remember the dip.

Courtney Barnett's new album The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas is out physically in North America for the first time today on Mom + Pop.

Crow Bait The Ocean (Stereogum Premiere)
Apr 16, 2014 10:33am | StereoGum

The first single off Long Island band Crow Bait’s upcoming debut album, Sliding Through The Halls Of Fate, balanced hangdog sentiments and guitar heroics in a way that was muscular and vulnerable. Their newest, “The Ocean,” starts a little gentler, but pretty quickly hits an even bigger and more yearning groove. It’s a good way way to sum up what they do so well, and fits just right as the album’s opening track. Listen below.
