Johanan is a Swedish producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who burst onto the scene with one of those majestic and anthemic songs that demands your attention. His debut single "Go On (Let It Go)" popped up on Beats 1, where Zane Lowe of course called it "magic" because he's Zane Lowe. Still, this time perhaps … More »
Eleanor Friedberger reveals new song
Oct 8, 2015 12:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound
We haven’t heard much from Eleanor Friedberger since Personal Record, her stellar 2013 LP which boasted one of the best songs of the year in “Stare at the Sun”. Thankfully, the singer-songwriter is back, this week returning with her first new track in over two years, and her first for new label home Frenchkiss Records.
Titled “False Alphabet City”, it’s a jaunty, freewheeling jam that Friedberger wrote while taking part in the visual artist Sara Magenheimer’s False Alphabets film. A press release explains further:
“Eleanor adapted Sara’s script into songs and performed them with her band at Recess, the SOHO gallery that hosted Sara’s residency. ‘False Alphabet City’ became the anthemic theme song for this video-based artwork about language, music and the radio voice as a life-line in our contemporary atmosphere of cultural alienation.”
Check out the song below via its corresponding video, which features footage from the film.
Additionally, The Fiery Furnaces member will soon hit the road for a short run of intimate tour dates, where she’s expected to play old songs as well as “new material.”

Lael Neale is a promising ethereal folk singer based in LA and hailing from Virginia. This past summer, she unveiled her debut album, I’ll Be Your Man, that follows her introspective journey through relationships and life. Quite possibly our favorite track, “White Daisy, Lace Gloves”, from it has a new visual directed by Tyler Monsein. The video follows a young woman gathering flowers and placing them in places of personal significance mourning the death of a relationship. It is a beautifully understated companion to the openly solemn song. Watch below.

Last week, my friend Damian Abraham, the singer of Fucked Up, became a father for the third time. And somehow, during the hazy initial days of new parenthood, he did not slow down his busy podcasting schedule. (Check out his Turned Out A Punk interview with Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace; it's great.) He … More »

Everything about Aeon Fux is beautiful, hypnotizing and deadly. I can only think to describe her music by saying that it sounds how I imagine the apocalypse would sound, which is not to say it isn

Broadcaster releasing the 'Spin' EP (stream a track)
Oct 8, 2015 11:37am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
When I caught Long Island's Broadcaster at Death by Audio last year they mentioned on stage that they had new stuff on the way. That new stuff will finally come out next week (10/16) in the form of the Spin EP on Jump Start Records (pre-order). We've got the premiere of "All The Wrong Reasons" from that EP, which has them taking cues from Husker Du and The Replacements (or the popular '90s bands who came in their wake) and delivering catchy, jangly alt-rock. Listen below.
The band will head to Gainesville in a few weeks for The Fest, where they play The Wooly on 11/1 with Caytana, Chumped, Antarctigo Vespucci and more.

Gold Class by Elisa Bryant Jones (photo via Facebook)
Each week the CMJ staff sifts through thousands of radio playlists that contribute to the weekly CMJ charts. In the Chart Discovery column, we highlight exciting artists, albums and songs brought to our attention by the charts of our reporting panel of college and non-commercial radio stations. This round’s picks come via CHIRP Radio in Chicago, IL, WMTS in Murfreesboro, TN, and The Spy in Oklahoma City, OK.
Luggage on CHIRP
Sometimes you need some good psychedelic droning in your day. Luggage sounds like the band you would find playing a smaller stage at a music festival who you’d tell all your friends about and stalk online when you’re home. Nothing To Know is pleasantly simple, with ghostly lyrics and cyclical melodies that go ’round ‘n’ ’round.
Sun by Luggage
Sunbeam Sound Machine on WMTS
Sunbeam Sound Machine is good shoegazey indie rock that you can hum along to. Coming from Melbourne, Australia, this is the music I would imagine plays in the minds of beach-goers on a sunny day in that distant land down under.
Cloudbreaks/Getting Young 7" by Sunbeam Sound Machine
Gold Class on The Spy
Sounding a whole lot like Smiths frontman, Morrissey, Gold Class is another Melbourne, Australia, band, and they make us really want to hop a plane to their homel...

Marvel has kicked off New York City Comic-Con with the announcement of a sequel to this year’s Ant-Man. Entitled Ant-Man and the Wasp, the film’s July 6th, 2018 release date will make it the first Marvel Studios movie to feature a heroine in its title.
