Listen: Mulekid Plattsburgh, NY
Aug 26, 2014 11:18am | CMJ

Here’s a new one from Ryan Hemsworth’s biweekly Secret Songs series which highlights an often unknown artist Hemsworth admires. This week’s track comes from Mulekid, a very new project (this is the band’s first track) from Montreal. Plattsburgh, NY, unlike much of what has appeared in the Secret Songs catalog so far, uses live instruments and soft, sincere vocals, but it’s not without interesting synthetic tweaks. Here’s what Ryan had to say about the track, via SoundCloud:

I’ve been friends with and a fan of Mulekid for a while. A Montreal kid through and through; holes up in his apartment and makes countless amazing music for his own pleasure, rarely sharing anything until it’s absolutely perfect. ‘Mulekid’ is his newest invention, and his use of live instruments + his own voice is really exciting to me. This is the next big step in his career.

Listen below.

Stream Krieg Transient (Stereogum Premiere)
Aug 26, 2014 11:11am | StereoGum

It’s been a weird year for Neill Jameson, aka Imperial, the man behind the seminal American black metal project Krieg. If you follow the guy on Facebook, you know he’s constantly dealing with bullshit, and that has increased exponentially over the last few weeks. He works in this record store in New Jersey, whose customers are a source of endless frustration. His occasional (current) musical collaborator Thurston Moore has been in the news for saying “Black Metal is music made by pussies of the lowest order.” His occasional (former) musical collaborator Blake Judd (of Nachtmystium) has been in the news for allegedly ripping off a bunch of fans and distributors, after pulling similar scams last year. And every time more news is made, Jameson — an outpost of acerbic, sarcastic pragmatism in a world of hyperbole and panic — finds himself inundated with requests for comments and clarifications. Wrote Jameson on Facebook in one such exchange (of many):


Donald Glover cast as Spider-Man in new cartoon
Aug 26, 2014 11:07am | Cosequence Of Sound

in 2011, when Hollywood announced plans to reboot the Spider-Man franchise (again), an online contingency came together to insist that Donald Glover be cast as the infamous webslinger. After generating traction online, Glover himself backed the idea, expressing interest in his Weirdo stand-up special. Despite these efforts, the role eventually went to Andrew Garfield, and Glover had to settle on a successful rap career.

Now, several years later, nerds everywhere will finally get their wish as Glover is confirmed to portray everyones friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. As USA Today reports, Glover has been tapped to appear in an episode of Disney XDs animated Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors as Miles Morales, the half-black, half-Hispanic Ultimates universe version of Spidey.

For those non-comic book fans, theres a pretty extensive and nerdy backstory for why the Ultimates universe is a separate continuity from the primary Marvel canon. Basically, it boils down to a series of alternate universes, each with separate Spider-Men. In the Ultimates universe, the 13-year-old Morales has taken over in the wake of Peter Parkers death. You can find more info about the characters origins and adventures here.

As USA Today notes, “the cartoon Miles is very close to the comic-book version: The 1...

Bears Den Announces Debut LP, Islands, Shares Live Video
Aug 26, 2014 10:52am | CMJ

British folk trio Bear’s Den has announced the details of their long awaited first full-length album, Islands. The album will see a release on October 21 via Communion, and promises to expand upon the infectious, harmony-infused modern folk the band is known for. In celebrating the album’s official announcement, the band has also shared an unplugged live video of album closer Bad Blood.

The video finds the trio armed with two acoustic guitars and a banjo, performing the song under a bridge on a picturesque rainy Scotland day. With the song pared down to its essential elements, with the emphasis on voices in harmony, this video highlights the high level of musicianship in this group, and provides yet another reason to look forward to the release of Islands. Check out the video below, along with the album’s tracklist and the band’s upcoming North American tour dates.

Tracklist For Islands:
01. Agape
02. The Love We Stole
03. Above the Clouds of Pompeii
04. Isaac
05. Think of England
06. Magdalene
07. When You Break
08. Stubborn Beast
09. Elysium
10. Bad Blood

Tour Dates For Bear’s Den:
10/25 – Philadelphia, PA – Underground Arts
10/27 – Columbus, OH – The Basement
10/28 – Chicago, IL – Lincoln Hall
10/29 – Minneapolis, MN...

This Is The Ether: Reintroducing Merchandise
Aug 26, 2014 10:50am | StereoGum

When you drive through Tampa’s Seminole Heights neighborhood, you will pass an endless collection of gas stations and strip malls, the latter seeming to surrender their final delayed breath into the aqueous Florida air. You will pass a laundromat whose wan teal sign looks as if it hasn’t been touched since the 1950s. You will pass rows of Florida bungalows and ranch houses, some occupied by artsy faux-hemians, some by the sort of Floridians who have three rusted-out vintage cars on their lawn and a Confederate flag hanging from the garage. Seedy motels are omnipresent. Nestled amongst this is the house where all five members of Merchandise currently live, the same house where they recorded their new album After The End. When you arrive, the thought is hard to escape: Unconventional as it is today, this is the sort of thing that could be — and, perhaps, will be — read in hindsight as the beginning of a rock ’n’ roll myth.

by Bill Pearis

Portland quartet The Shivas are set to release their fourth album, You Know What To Do, via K Recs on October 28. The album was recorded at Dub Narcotic Studios and mixed by Calvin Johnson and is indebted to early-'60s rock n' roll. We've got the premiere of the surfy "Mansion Girls" in this post.

The Shivas will be on tour this fall, playing two NYC shows: Cake Shop on October 15 and Palisades on October 16. No openers announced for those shows just yet. Stay tuned. All dates are listed, along with the new track stream, below...

2:54 In The Mirror
Aug 26, 2014 10:25am | StereoGum

The gothy, dreamy, doomy British sister act 2:54 are coming back this fall with their new album The Other I, and that’s good news, since their rich and retro sound is about as autumnal as it gets. We’ve already posted the majestic first single “Orion,” and now they’ve shared the heavy, churning follow-up “In The Mirror,” which has melody to burn. Listen to it below.

Premiere: Listen to Christopher Willits latest album OPENING, forthcoming on Ghostly
Aug 26, 2014 10:23am | Fact Magazine

The San Francisco multimedia artist brings it all together on his latest album.

Christopher Willits has spent over a decade exploring ambient soundscapes, collaborating with the likes of Kid606, Death Grips Zach Hill and Ryuichi Sakamoto, and working in photography, video and other mediums.

His latest work, OPENING, is a audio-visual project that brings many of these threads together, combining seven ambient tracks, 45 minutes of visual, seven photographs and a “multi-sensory, multiple channel live performance.” “Sound and light can transform and inspire our imaginations,” he says. “It can be used as a tool to awaken our consciousness.”

Along with his richly textured compositions, OPENING includes an abstract narrative film built from images and footage from his travels in California, Hawaii, Japan and Thailand, in what press materials describe as Planet Earth meets Koyaanisqatsi.

OPENING is due out on September 2 via Ghostly, with exclusive content available through Christophers new subscription service at Stream the album below (we’ll have the visuals later); Willits’ tour dates follow.

09.06 San Francisco, CA @ The Independent
09.16 Reno, NV @ The Knitting Factory*
09.17 Salt Lake City, UT @ The Depot*
09.18 Boulder, CO @ Boulder Theater*

It was only a matter of time before PC Music began seeping into the major-label world, and now SOPHIE and A. G. Cook’s collaborative project QT has made its debut via XL Recordings. The song was debuted during a show at the Boiler Room in Los Angeles last Friday (which included live sets from Oneohtrix Point Never, Hudson Mohawke, and a solo SOPHIE performance, which you can stream here). If you’ve been a fan of this style of music throughout the year, then this will be special for you. Finally bringing together the two figureheads of this sound, it melds the cartoon vocals of SOPHIE’s best tracks, “Lemonade” and “BIPP,” with the bright bubblegummy production of Cook’s best work, such as Hannah Diamond’s “Attachment” and “Pink And Blue.” This is one of the best songs to come from either of these producers. Listen to it and read a typically cryptic statement from them below.
