You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Speedy Ortiz, Mitski, Krill @ Bowery Ballroom
Speedy Ortiz's new album, Foil Deer, takes the band into new sonic directions without losing their style of discordant indie rock that made us love the music in the first place. Very powerful lyrically too. Both openers tonight are great -- the artful, unique NYC songwriter Mitski and the Boston indie rock band Krill.

WBAR-B-Q w/ Perfect Pussy, Dubbel Dutch, Big Ups, Thug Entrancer, Bodega Bay, Palberta, Swings, Stud1nt, Diet Cig @ Barnard College
It's Barnard College's annual WBAR-B-Q with noise punks Perfect Pussy, dance producer Dubbel Dutch, post-hardcore band Big Ups, ambient musician Thug Entrancer, and more. As always, it's free, all ages, and open to the public.

Into It. Over It., Major League, Tiny Moving Parts, Collect Yourself, Safety @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Into It. Over It. is one of the many bands led by the great Evan Weiss, who's been one of the key guys in this whole "emo revival" thing, working with Mike Kinsella to You Blew It! to The Jazz June and more.

The Juan Maclean (live), Julien Tregoat (DJ set), Computer Magic (live) @ Union Pool
Tonight's the last of The Juan Maclean's six-show Brooklyn residency. These shows mark the debut of their new ...



Ethan Kath Clarifies Statements About Alice Glass, Says Crystal Castles Are In The Studio
Apr 24, 2015 8:52pm | StereoGum
After Crystal Castles' Ethan Kath posted what appeared to be an antagonistic statement about ex-bandmate Alice Glass upon the release of "Frail," Glass responded with some tweets calling Kath's words "manipulative." Now Kath has given a short interview to Pitchfork clearing up his statement and offering news on the future of the … More »

Apr 24, 2015 8:24pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Today is the 75th anniversary of The Joker’s debut in the Batman comics, and to mark the occasion, director David Ayer has shared our clearest look yet at how Jared Leto plans to portray the character in the forthcoming Suicide Squad movie.

Death Waltz announces vinyl release of The Guest score
Apr 24, 2015 5:46pm | Fact Magazine

The grimly funny follow up to You’re Next gets its own soundtrack release.

Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s The Guest got a lot of attention for its licensed soundtrack last year. The combination of intense violence and 80s goth-pop was one of the best musical combinations since Drive. It wasn’t all Love & Rockets though, the film was also aided by an excellent, pulsing synthesizer score courtesy of Steve Moore.

Now the score will get its first vinyl release through Death Waltz. You’ll be able to pick it up from Mondo (who acquired Death Waltz last year) starting next week. Take a look at Alan Hynes’ exclusive artwork and the tracklist below.

blink-182's Mark Hoppus working on the new PAWS album
Apr 24, 2015 5:26pm | Brooklyn Vegan

There's a known mutual admiration between blink-182 and a handful of indie rock bands. Best Coast and Colleen Green have covered them. DIIV talked about learning their songs on guitar at a young age when they opened for them in Brooklyn as Mark Hoppus intently watched their set. And Mark has enthusiastically expressed interest in Wavves and Japandroids. (We've written about their importance to indie rock too.)

Now, the indie/blink crossover will continue to move forward, as Scottish indie rockers PAWS tweeted, "Excited to say we are going into the studio this summer to record our third album and @markhoppus of @blink182 is coming to help us!" That album will follow PAWS' 2014 album Youth Culture Forever and 2012's Cokefloat!, both on Fat Cat.

Meanwhile, the Tom Delonge-less blink-182 recently played their first shows with Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba (full set video), who says "only time can tell" if he'll become a permanent member (sigh). Tom Delonge recently released/streamed his odds-and-ends collection, To The Stars (double sigh).

Song : Gacha :
Apr 24, 2015 5:21pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

We have really been vibing out to the celestial sounds of Gacha’s upcoming debut LP release, Send Two Sunsets, out of May 5th via Apollo Records. Our two favorites tracks thus far have been the album title track that features guest vocals from Natalie Beridze and “Let Me Love You” now available for streaming. The latter integrates seamlessly a sample from the Ready For The World’s ‘85 song “Oh Sheila”. Both can be heard below and are a perfect backdrop for the moments seeking out serenity.

Video : HEALTH :
Apr 24, 2015 4:58pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

After six long years, LA’s HEALTH have announce their return to the mix with new LP, Death Magic, slated to drop on August 7th via Loma Vista. To go along with the announcement, they have unloaded new song “New Coke” along with a visual directed by bassist John Famiglietti. The song is frenetic and pounding full of dark undertones accentuated by the nightclub scenery in the video that culminates in slow-motion vomiting. Watch and listen below.


new music from Tribulation, KEN mode, Noisem, more + Meek Is Murder, Unearthly Trance, Born Wrong, more playing NYC

Plenty of great metal, hardcore, and other heavy NYC shows are getting announced all the time. We don't get a chance to write about all of them, so here's a roundup of some of the recently-announced stuff coming up:

Ohio metallic hardcore band Enabler and Brooklyn mathcore trio Meek Is Murder (who currently share drummer Frank Godla) are going on a tour this June which ends in Meek Is Murder's hometown on June 14 at the Acheron. Tickets aren't on sale yet, but should be soon via Ticketfly. All dates are listed below.

Enabler are planning to release their new album Fail to Feel Safe this year via Century Media (release date TBA), and Meek Is Murder's new LP, Onward/Into the Sun, comes out May 5 via Rising Pulse Records. You can hear the killer single "Onward Toward A Red Horizon" below (via VICE), and the whole album can be previewed at the listening party TONIGHT (4/24) at Over the Eight in Williamsburg for MetalSucks and Metal Injection's Heavy Metal Happy Hour.

Brooklyn sludge weirdos Unearthly Trance have been broken up since 2012 (though members continued on in Serpentine Path), but they're now ready to come out of hibernation to release a new album on Relapse Records and play shows again. So far they have two hometown shows announced. They open the Samothrace show at Saint Vit...


The 5 Best Songs Of The Week
Apr 24, 2015 4:42pm | StereoGum
Admittedly, this is a bit of a weird week for 5 Best Songs. Not weird because the songs are stranger than usual (they're not) or because they're weak in some way (they're super not), but because there's no single track that casts a gigantic shadow over the others. But weirdness often makes for great spectacle. More »



Kimya Dawson & Paul Baribeau on "book as you go" tour, will hit NY w/ Toby Goodshank, Hamell on Trial, Roger Manning
Apr 24, 2015 4:20pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Fans of the NYC antifolk scene will want to be at Trans Pecos on Monday (4/27) as Kimya Dawson headlines a a very notable bill. The night also includes sets from Kimya's Moldy Peaches bandmate Toby Goodshank, antifolk progenitors Roger Manning and Hamell on Trial, as well as Michigan folk-punk singer Paul Baribeau. Tickets are on sale now.

This is part of what Kimya and Paul Baribeau are calling a "book as you go tour" that hits Pittsburgh on Saturday (4/25) and Philadelphia on Sunday (4/26). Where else will Kimya play? Follow her on Twitter for updates.

All known tour dates, and a stream of tourmate Baribeau's 2010 album, Unbearable, below...

Gacha
Apr 24, 2015 3:38pm | StereoGum
Berlin producer Gacha's pearly, electronic comedowns are soothing above all. In advance of releasing his debut full-length Send Two Sunsets, we premiered the title track, and now he's shared two others. "Let Me Love You" is not a Ne-Yo cover, but a lingering command that's far more meditative than demanding. On "Waterfalls," he's … More »



Mobb Deep added to Maryland Deathfest (seriously), playing other shows too (including NYC this Sunday)
Apr 24, 2015 3:37pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Maryland Deathfest is less than a month away (May 21-24), and the lineup was already stacked with Neurosis, Napalm Death, Yob, Triptykon, Primordial, Inter Arma, Tombs, D.R.I., Conan, Ufomammut, Sodom and so many more. Yet MDF still felt the need to sweeten the deal, so they went ahead and added one more to the lineup: Mobb Deep.

You didn't read that wrong, and it's not some foreign metal band with a lawsuit ahead of them. The legendary Queensbridge hip hop duo Mobb Deep are playing at 11:30 PM on the Thursday of MDF (5/21) at Baltimore Soundstage, amongst this otherwise metal, hardcore, and metal-related lineup. It's not crazy -- it's not like Slayer wasn't on Def Jam, Anthrax never collaborated with Public Enemy, and metal and hip hop haven't had a crossover fan base for years -- but it should be interesting to see how this goes down. Tickets for just the Mobb Deep show are on sale, and anyone with an MDF 4-day pass or a Thursday Soundstage ticket can get in too.

Mobb Deep also have several other dates including a hometown NYC show this weekend at BB King's on Sunday (4/26) with Funkmaster Flex, Alchemist and Smif-N-Wessun. Tickets for Sunday's show are still available.

Meanwhile, their seminal 1995 album, The Infamous, turns 20 tomorrow (4/25). Listen to "Shook Ones Pt. II" from that record, with their tour dates and the updated MDF schedule, below...

Stuart David released a new Looper album / box set & a memoir about his days in Belle & Sebastian (win them both)
Apr 24, 2015 3:28pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Stuart David has been making music as Looper since 1998 when he was still a member of Belle & Sebastian (he left in 2000). What started as a project with his wife, Karn, turned into a four-piece band and Looper released three albums between 1998 - 2002. (Looper's song "Mondo '77" was used in a lot of commercials and movies.) Then in the mid-'00s Stuart began suffering from chronic fatigue which all but ended his creative output. He's been getting better and 2015 makes a flurry of activity for him. He released The All-Night Cafe, a memoir of the early days of Belle & Sebastian, and a new Looper album, Offgrid:Offline which just came out via Mute. You can stream that in full, via Rdio, below.

That new album is also part of a career-encompassing Looper box set titled These Things, which rearranges the songs into five mixtapes categorized by genres. You can read more about that (and listen to it via Rdio) below. The box set also features liner notes by Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess. We've got a copy of both the These Things box set and The All-Night Cafe memoir to give away. Details below.

Belle & Sebastian, meanwhile, will play NYC's Radio City Music Hall in June.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week
Apr 24, 2015 3:22pm | StereoGum
One of the videos getting a lot of notice this week is Calexico's clip for "Falling From The Sky," starring José González and an absolutely disgusting worm creature. I can recognize that it's a very good video, but it's not on this list, because I hate that fucking worm creature. It just skeeves me … More »
