Sleater-Kinney to reissue entire discography in new box set
Sep 2, 2014 9:47am | Cosequence Of Sound
Sleater-Kinney have announced plans to reissue their entire discography as a new vinyl box set. Entitled Start Together, the seven-LP collection will hit stores on October 21st via Sub Pop Records.
The box set will feature remastered versions of all seven Sleater-Kinney studio albums, pressed on colored vinyl. Also included is a 44-page hardcover book of rare photos from the band’s personal collections, along with an exclusive art print. Pre-orders are ongoing through the label’s website, but hurry: copies are limited to 3,000.
The remasters were carried out by engineer Greg Calbi (Lou Reed, Talking Heads, St. Vincent). Calbi discussed the process in an issued statement, saying, “For such ferocious music, it was actually a very delicate process. I found, in dealing with one of the earlier albums, that my signal path and compression, including my Burl B2 convertor, gave me a more resonant, deeper sound on the guitars than the originals.” He continued, “Because the band rarely, if ever, used bass, I felt that this added to the aggressiveness and power of the band overall. I believe this treatment added a subtle, yet important, dimension to the band, and I explored each of the other albums with the same intention.”
Sub Pop will also release the remastered albums on standalone CD and black vinyl. Starting today, the reissues are also available for purch...
Sleater-Kinney to release career-spanning vinyl boxset 'Start Together' in October

Limited-edition vinyl release will feature all seven of the band's albums
Sleater-Kinney Announce Limited Edition 7xLP Box Set Start Together
Sep 2, 2014 9:35am | StereoGum
Here’s some rad news for the first day back to real life after a holiday weekend: Sleater-Kinney, one of history’s most righteously ass-kicking rock bands, will release a 7xLP box set containing all seven of their studio albums remastered from the original analog tapes. Entitled Start Together, it will be limited to 3,000 copies. According to a press release, “The set will include all seven albums pressed on colored vinyl and is accompanied by a 44-page hardcover book featuring never-before-seen photos of the band, as well as a limited edition print.” Fans who pre-order Start Together can download “high-quality remastered files” of all the albums starting today. Each remastered record is also available for individual purchase right now. Seeing as the band’s last album came out in 2005, let’s cross our fingers that this reissue campaign is a precursor to a 10-years-later reunion tour in 2015. When we spoke to Carrie Brownstein last winter, she wouldn’t rule it out!
PC Worship releasing a new album (full LP stream), touring, including NYC shows w/ Parquet Courts, Naomi Punk & more
Sep 2, 2014 9:35am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
NYC's PC Worship have been making noise around their hometown for years now, and their new album Social Rust is their most cleaned-up (and possibly best) album to date. It comes out next week (9/9) as a split release on Northern Spy and Dull Tools (their first for both labels), and throughout its running time touches on dark post-punk, psychedelic rock, and outsider folk, while still finding some time to keep their noisier roots intact. Fans of anything from Parquet Courts to The Young to Destruction Unit should check this out. The album stream premieres in this post and can be listened to below.
If you like what you hear you can pre-order the vinyl, and all vinyl pre-orders come with a free edition of the "PC Worship - Dead Rust" cassette, which features alternate versions of songs from Social Rust, recorded and produced by Ben Greenberg.
PC Worship also have a tour coming up which includes three previously discussed NYC shows. First they play Palisades on September 10 with Naomi Punk (tickets), then Death by Audio on September 26 with Dick Diver, Free Time and Guerilla Toss (no advance tickets); and finally they open for Parquet Courts with Blues Control on December 11 at Webster Hall (tickets).
All dates are listed, with the new LP stream, below...

Listen to Todd Osborns nine-minute autumnal groover November
Sep 2, 2014 9:34am | Fact Magazine
The Michigan veteran links up with Acoustic Division.
While he’s spent time on Rephlex, Planet Mu and Ghostly under the aliases Soundmurderer, Superstructure and Osborne, Todd Osborn‘s latest release is under his own name. The three-track Step Off EP promises “Deep Acid Boogie” and “Autumnal Detroit Cuts,” and b-side ‘November’ is firmly in the latter camp: a nine-minute jaunt with old school drum loops, mellow pads and a vein of electro.
Stream ‘November’ below and preview the EP on Soundcloud. Step Off is out today via Lexington, KY’s experimental techno imprint Acoustic Division. Earlier this year, Osborn dropped the DJ-friendly T-Rhythm Trax vol.1 EP.
Hear New Kanye Song Awesome Teased In Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Sep 2, 2014 9:31am | StereoGum
When your wife has a wildly popular reality show, you might as well use that show to debut some new music, right? Last year, Kanye West served as a surprise guest at Adult Swim’s upfronts party, and he used the opportunity to debut “Awesome,” a love song to Kim Kardashian that didn’t end up on Yeezus, probably because it would’ve fit all wrong on that album. (Video of that “Awesome” performance quickly disappeared from the internet.) But now it seems likely that the song will end up on the mysterious new Kanye album that could arrive at any minute. A quick snippet of the song recently aired on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, along with various Kardashians talking about it, and you can check that out below. Also below, watch video of Kanye’s entire 90-minute set at this past weekend’s Made In America festival in Philadelphia.
Song : Jessie Ware : Want Your Feeling
Sep 2, 2014 9:31am | My Old Kentucky Blog
Another week, another great Jessie Ware track hits the internet. “Want Your Feeling” is the fourth song we have heard from her upcoming sophomore LP, Tough Love, out on October 7th via PMR/Island. It was produced by the uber-talented Dev Hynes and is battling it out with the title track for our favorite from the album thus far. Listen below.
The 20 Best Songs of August 2014
Sep 2, 2014 9:26am | Chart Attack
Say goodbye to August and with it all the endless, annually recurring "songs of the summer" discussion. For our money the songs of the summer were psychedelic dance, melancholy folk, epic post-black metal, fried lo-fi post-punk and Thai psych. And that's the final word on that. Listen to the 20 best songs of August below.
Caribou, "Our Love"
The Unicorns, "Let Me Sleep"
Jennifer Castle, "Nature"
Darkside, "Gone Too Soon"
HAERTS Giving Up
Sep 2, 2014 9:24am | StereoGum
Brooklyn quartet HAERTS has released a new single called “Giving Up” in anticipation of their upcoming debut album that’s set to be released via Columbia later in October. Along with “Call My Name,” the song is one of our first looks at their debut. “Giving Up” is a glimmering and soaring piece of indie-pop that’s accompanied by a video that shows the lyrics scrawled in shimmering gold paint across lead singer Nini Fabi’s body. Watch below.

The season finale of Keeping Up with Kardashians aired this weekend, offering a glimpse inside the wedding of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. The biggest takeaway for music fans, however, was the episode’s soundtrack.
As KanyeToThe points out, the episode featured snippets of two unreleased songs by Kanye: “Awesome”, which he originally debuted live in 2013, and an alternate remix of “Niggas in Paris”. Talk about the ultimate wedding present.
Stream both snippets below. Fair warning: Kim talks over each of the tracks.

Cee-Lo Deletes Twitter Following Heinous Rape Comments
Sep 2, 2014 9:13am | StereoGum
Sometimes, it would be a hell of a lot easier for people to just write, “I am a piece of shit” on Twitter and be done with it. On Friday, the Goodie Mob member and The Voice coach Cee-Lo pleaded no contest to giving ecstasy to a woman. The woman claimed that she’d been eating a sushi dinner with Cee-Lo and then woken up naked in his bed, without any memory of what came in between, including taking any ecstasy. If any of that is true, it’s completely beyond the pale, and Cee-Lo certainly didn’t help his case with some comments he made on twitter over the weekend.
Stream Esben And The Witch A New Nature (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 2, 2014 9:11am | StereoGum
Brighton trio Esben And The Witch long ago mastered the art of building up their songs from a brooding crawl to a brutal onslaught of sonic violence — or starting with the violence and scaling back to its eerie aftermath. In doing so, they’ve always lived up to their name. Whatever its true lineage — be that Kate Bush, Sonic Youth, Swans, Portishead, or Siouxsie And The Banshees — this music always feels like it emanated from some crooked-fingered cackler’s cauldron. It’s singular, seductive, terrifying stuff. It casts a spell.
