Aphex Twin Is Releasing A Syro Bonus Track On White Label 12
Mar 5, 2015 12:08pm | StereoGum
After a decade-long hiatus, we’ve got an avalanche of new music from Aphex Twin. It’s been an almost overwhelming return, between last year’s SYRO, follow-up EP Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2, the long-lost Caustic Window LP, and that trove of SoundCloud tracks. The latest new music from Richard D. James comes in bite-size form: He’s […]




NOW HEAR THIS: Jenny Hvals rambling, bleary take on pop; Blood Orange returns with Delancey
Mar 5, 2015 12:03pm | Chart Attack
Now Hear This is a daily dive into the standout songs of the last 24 hours. Today: fusion, fusion, fusion. Goofed with and gussied up takes on yacht rock, surf music, and the good old pop song.

Jenny Hval, "That Battle is Over"

Experimental songwriter Jenny Hval almost went ahead and gave us an honest-to-goodness pop song. Almost. I mean, there are melodies you can discern from the tangle and really, no tangle to speak of. There are gorgeous vocal flourishes, ones you might conceivably try whistling, one's that will certainly stick in your head. But then the words, those curious words. She's doing battle with the big fat ideology at the heart of the industrial pop machine: the unfettered collection of capital. Every other battle feminism, socialism well, that battle is over.

Apocalypse, girl is available June 9 on Sacred Bones.

Walter TV, "Surf Metal"


Brought to our attention as the weirder kid brother of Mac DeMarco, peopled by his touring band, Uncharted alum Walter TV has carved out its own warped, sun-damaged, likely pus-filled cavity in our hearts. Here, the goofballs offer valuable information: at the beach and you forgot yer sunscreen? Try corpse paint, dummy. Black metal surf music it's all spelled out right there in the name. Like peanut butter and bacon, sometimes it just takes the right idiots to put it together.

Their sophomore LP, Blessed, is out June 23 via Captured ...

Song : et aliae : Only You
Mar 5, 2015 11:59am | My Old Kentucky Blog

London’s et aliae was a name many became acquainted with last year through her numerous original songs or remixes and appearance on Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs label light pink compilation. Recently, she signed with a perfect aesthetic match in the label Cascine and has just streamed her first song for them “Only You”. It plays like the most serene, comfortable setting imaginable elevating the listener’s mind to almost a heavenly state. For those masseuses out there, you should probably at this song to your relaxing music mix immediately. Listen below.


Mars Volta off-shoot Antemasque accused of throwing boiling water at fans during show
Mar 5, 2015 11:59am | Fact Magazine

A video captures Cedric Bixler-Zavala performing in Antemasque throwing a kettle of water into the crowd, which fans say left them burned.

Even though prog rockers The Mars Volta officially split in 2013, most of the key members returned from their breakup fairly quickly by forming the new band Antemasque. Their dedicated fan base carried over, but they may have lost some support in New Zealand after allegedly burning some of their fans with scalding hot water at Westfest in Auckland.

In a new report from The New Zealand Herald, video has surfaced of Cedric Bixler-Zavala spontaneously tossing a plastic kettle of water into the audience. According to some fans it was boiling hot and one shared a photo of the burn to prove it. He said Zavala seemed agitated throughout the set and also threw speaker stacks, packing cases, and a mic stand.

No comment has come from the band yet, but watch the video of it happening and look at a picture of the fan’s burn below (they’re not gross, we promise).

Band To Watch: American Wrestlers + Theres No One Crying Over Me Either (Stereogum Premiere)
Mar 5, 2015 11:50am | StereoGum
Gary McClure’s dexterous, lo-fi project American Wrestlers began as an idle way to pass the time. McClure is a music industry veteran who’s been making music for 20+ years, but the eight-song self-titled album he thrust out into the universe last fall as a free release on Bandcamp was an act of desperation, not ambition.

Scott Weiland Explains Why Grandaddy Is One Of His Favorite Bands
Mar 5, 2015 11:46am | StereoGum
Grandaddy and Stone Temple Pilots were two of my favorite bands circa 2000, and I’m happy to report that they like each other, too. Actually, I can’t confirm how Jason Lytle feels about STP, but Scott Weiland apparently is a big fan of Grandaddy. Weiland told Esquire about his 10 favorite bands, and Grandaddy made […]



Bird Peterson and Astronautalis team up for Sugarface listen
Mar 5, 2015 11:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

This spring, Austin producer Bird Peterson will release his latest album, Plume. Produced and mixed by Peterson himself, the effort was mastered by Jesse Keeler of Death from Above 1979 and MSTRKRFT, and features guests like Keeper and Rush Midnight, among others. On the LP’s first single, “Sugarface”, Minneapolis rapper Astronautalis takes the mic to tell a tale about how hip-hop intersected with MDMA.

“My older brother grew up in the early years of the Baltimore rave scene and later went on to be a hip-hop DJ at the seminal Florida rave club Simon’s back in the ’90s,” Astronautalis explains to CoS. “So, through him, I was really familiar with both of those worlds.” Not only was Simon’s the first place the budding rapper got to perform in front of an audience, but it was where he first witnessed what he calls the absurdity of people rolling on ecstasy.

It wasn’t so long after that the drug started to appear in songs from rappers like 8 Ball & MJG and Trick Daddy. Hearing men “who worked so hard to cultivate this image of toughness” talking about rolling didn’t line up with Astronautalis’s perception of the world. “X was suburban nerd shit, that shit was all around me,” he raps on “Sugarface”, “And the idea that those thugs were gettin’ all dosed up/ Smok...


Q&A And Album Stream: Summer Cannibals
Mar 5, 2015 11:45am | CMJ

Summer Cannibals – Photo by J Quigley


Oh the infinite, desperate comments we could work up involving how we could all use some summer to swallow down right about now. And the fun, cool sunglasses-needing fuzz rock of this Portland band are making us miss the warmer months even more. Their second album, Show Us Your Mind came out this week on New Moss, and the band is already out there on the road with it. But before they left, we asked singer/guitarist Jessica Boudreaux a few quick queries while she was packing. Check out the Q&A while listening to a stream of the album below. And, in that very summer way where you keep going and going, check out the tour dates and new video below that too. Eat it up, folks, and forget that snow for awhile.
A little band history please.
The band started in 2012 when I was making demos and recording under the name. After I had a set’s worth of songs, Marc [Swart, guitar] joined the band and we’ve been the primary members ever since. We’ve played in bands together over the last five years and work really well together so it made sense. We’ve gone through a few rhythm section changes but have recently solidified a really killer lineup with Jenny Logan [bass] and Devon Shirley [drums]. We’ve all been in too many bands to count, but I think this one is going to stick for a while. As far as touring is concerned we’ve toured the midwest and ...

I create from a place that is the belly of the beast: Jlin unleashes her Dark Energy on footwork
Mar 5, 2015 11:32am | Fact Magazine

When footwork burst onto the international dance music scene in the late 2000s, it was like a shock to our collective nervous system.

Birthed in the Chicago underground, the music brought an energy that many had not felt since whatever heyday they had been holding onto, and in the past five years footwork has travelled the world, from Chicago to Tokyo, London to Croatia, infecting everything in its path. Originally a music made for dancers, footwork’s rise in popularity led to an inevitable evolution that helped it fit within the accepted norms of dance music. With popularity came attention, and with attention came the need for figureheads. The late DJ Rashad was one, a unique voice that rose from the Chicago underground to lead the music, and by default its various local practitioners, around the world.

Despite all of this, one thing that’s been conspicuously lacking over the past five years are unique voices within footwork. You’d think that such a surge of interest would lead to more progression, sonically, and yet most people within the footwork world have played it safe, sticking to accepted production templates. While Rashad and his long-term partner Spinn made a lot of tracks that were classicist in their approach, they also embraced footwork’s mutation. When the music collided with jungle in the UK, both sides took inspiration from each other and pushed new ideas forward. At the same time older Chicago pio...
