Listen: Baked Codec
Jul 29, 2014 2:35pm | CMJ


Earlier this month we shared Baked’s sawdust single, Hungry Ghosts, off their upcoming Exploding In Sound debut, Debt. Since then, the Brooklyn five-piece has caught a case of heavy-lidded psychedelia, arriving in the form of their new single, Codec. A solid stream of fuzz runs behind singer RJ Gordon’s carefree vocals, lending a hint of inevitable, ignored doom to the whole affair. If you’re in the area, you can catch Baked’s record release show at Shea Stadium in Brooklyn on August 22. Until then, listen to Codec below.

The Melvins have a habit of constantly shifting their roster which, of course, makes them the Melvins. Their next iteration will occur on the forthcoming Hold it In, due out on October 14 through Ipecac Recordings. On that one, Buzz and Dale will be joined by a couple Butthole Surfers: guitarist Paul Leary and bassist JD Pinkus. To ring in the event, Buzz, Dale and JD (but not Paul) will outline America starting in October. There's no NY date, but they'll hit multiple California localesm a stop in Austin, Texas, an appearance at The Fest, and more. Full tour schedule below.

In related news, Buzz Osborne will be touring Australia and Europe in support of his acoustic record This Machine Kills Artists. Dale Crover will hop aboard OFF! during their jaunt in August. Fellow Butthole Surfer Gibby Haynes is set to be featured on Mastodon's Adult Swim single that will be released on September 8. And in sorta related, This Band Could Still Be Your Life news, the Meat Puppets -- who have surely crossed paths with the aforementioned many a time -- announced a tour, including two NYC dates on October 31 and November 1. Bob Mould also just added Cymbals Eat Guitars to his tour, and J Mascis is up to plenty of stuff too.

Classic lineup of Primus releasing 'Willy Wonka' tribute LP, touring, playing NYC on Halloween (dates, new track stream)
Jul 29, 2014 2:05pm | Brooklyn Vegan

The classic lineup of Primus that made Sailing the Seas of Cheese (Les Claypool, Larry "Ler" LaLonde, and Tim "Herb" Alexander) have gotten back together for a new, food-themed album, due out October 21. Specifically it's a tribute to the classic 1971 movie musical version of Roald Dahl's Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, covering the entire soundtrack in their own inimitable way. (Even "Cheer Up Charlie" which used to get cut from the TV version.) Says Claypool:

The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record,' says Claypool. I think like a good portion of the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the 'Willy Wonka' movie - the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that's what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit...twisted them up a lot.
You can stream "Pure Imagination" from Primus & the Chocolate Factory below.

The day after its release, Primus will head out on tour, playing NYC on Halloween (10/31) at Beacon Theatre for a show billed as "An Evening With Primus and the Chocolate Factory." Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (8/1) at 11 AM, with Livenation and Chase Cardmember presales beginning Thursday (7/31)...


Avant-metal weirdos Mr. Bungle prep vinyl reissue campaign
Jul 29, 2014 1:52pm | Fact Magazine

Mike Patton’s cult troupe of zany riffers Mr. Bungle might have been inactive for ages at this point, but hasn’t curbed demand for their records.

Demand for vinyl (whether we like it or not) is up, and since Mr. Bungle’s classic LPs have been out of press for many years, it makes sense to have them back on the shelves once more. The news was discovered on Mike Patton’s Facebook page, where he describes the 2015 campaign as “authorized vinyl reissues,” no doubt making reference to the countless bootlegs and/or gray market editions that continue to plague the shelves.

This news complements the band’s brand new online merch store, where you can purchase that Mr. Bungle trucker hat you never knew you wanted (and some pretty cool teeshirts too). [via Consequence of Sound]

"IM WATCHING FUCKING BRAID PLAY RIGHT NOW." - Eric Drumm


'90s emo pioneers Braid began their current reunion back in 2011 but it's been more exciting than ever lately with the release of No Coast, their first full length since 1998's now-legendary Frame & Canvas and a very good one at that. The band wrapped up their tour with A Great Big Pile of Leaves this past weekend, hitting NYC on Saturday (7/26) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. We didn't get the setlist for that particular show, but they look pretty much the same for most nights on this tour and have included new album standouts like "East End Hollows," "Bang" and the title track," as well as classics like "The New Nathan Detroits," "Please Drive Faster," "First Day Back" and plenty more. If you caught the show, what did you think? Anybody stop by Washed Up Emo's afterparty at Cameo where Bob Nanna and Chris Broach were DJing?

We unfortunately missed AGBPOL (though they're touring again soon), but pictures of Braid are in this post and continue below...

Q&A: The Muffs
Jul 29, 2014 1:36pm | CMJ

The Muffs – Photo by Kim Shattuck


Most bands are lucky to have one career go-round. The Muffs—L.A.s longtime purveyors of pugilistic power pop—are going on like their fourth. Singer/guitarist Kim Shattuck, having survived the day-glo garage gal-gang, the Pandoras at the end of the 80s, started the Muffs around 1992, had some slight lineup changes, and once the classic lineup of Shattuck, bassist Ronnie Barnett and drummer Roy McDonald (also on/off with Redd Kross over the years) was fixed, the trio settled into an amazing five-year groove on Warner Bros.

The dust of the alternative rock boom eventually settled, but not before the Muffs had their share of success, though they never fully got their due for producing some of the best guitar pop tunes of that decade. After a tiny breather, the band continued on with more garage goodness via various labels, until around 2006 where everyone sort of flitted around, living life. But the Muffs never stopped doing occasional gigs around the two coasts, keeping their chops honed and Shattucks infamous scream intact. And last year the Pixies noticed Shattucks expert ability to scream and play guitar at the same time, bringing her on tour for a fleeting moment that ended abruptly. That was good news to lovers of bashed-up bubblegum rock, because that just meant the Muffs got back into action and have a brand new album, Whoop Dee Doo, out today on Burger Records.

Mr. Bungle announces archival campaign
Jul 29, 2014 1:22pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Mike Pattons avant-garde metal band Mr. Bungle hasn’t been active in over a decade and, according to bassist Trevor Dunn, there are no plans for a reunion. However, fans will soon have a chance to wax nostalgia, as the band will be the subject of an archival campaign starting in 2015.

According to Patton’s Facebook page, “authorized vinyl reissues” from Mr. Bungle will be released next year. In anticipation, a new online store for the band has been launched online, offering various hats and t-shirts for purchase.

(Read: Turns out Mike Patton, and not Axl Rose, is the greatest singer of all time)

In related news, Patton recently debuted two new songs with his other critical acclaimed outfit, Faith No More. Watch fan-shot footage of the band performing “Motherfucker” and “Superhero (Leader of Men)” here.
