Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks @ Bowery Ballroom 4/21/2014

Animal Collective's Avey Tare released Enter the Slasher House earlier this month via Domino and he and his Slasher Flicks are currently on tour in support. That tour hit NYC last night (4/21) for a show at Bowery Ballroom. The band -- which includes Angel Deradoorian -- played in near darkness, save for a few glowing skulls on stage. Spooky. Dustin Wong, who played with Deradoorian the night before at Baby's All Right, opened the show with his impressive loop pedal skills. Pictures from the show are in this post.

Meanwhile, Kevin Barnes of Of Montreal (who play NYC next month) reviewed Enter the Slasher House over at The Talkhouse:

i like how much he sings and how many different words he uses without articulating anything penetrable on any simple human "emotional" level. though it is very emotive, just in a more abstract sort of way. it is as if a policemanhumanshield-constructed garden was viewed by all as pornographic and gained some heavy notoriety. lots of desperation/repetition and shaking of a friend by the shoulders and very little storming off in a huff, virtually no huff to speak of, and i do appreciate that. the gnarly things we might find if pulling up the carpeting in a bathroom during a renovation, a decrepit inner city house being flipped yet enough...

Available on: A1 / Freebandz / Epic Records LP

Here are the first four singles that preceded Futures Honest: the controversial synth-blasted ‘Karate Chop’, the twinkling ‘Honest’, the menacing fuck-the-club-up bow-thrower ‘Shit’ and ‘Real and True’, a piano ballad featuring Miley Cyrus and Mr. Hudson. While two of those ended up as bonus tracks and one ended up in the bin, one thing was clear: if theres anyone that can mix with equal efficacy rap and R&B, bangers and ballads, the street and the bedroom, its Future.

On Pluto, Future mostly told drug-fueled tales of conspicuous consumption, with heavy doses of Auto-Tune and astronaut metaphors. Apart from the romantic outliers, Future seemed content to play the part of hustler-turnt-rapper, only hinting at something more personal on songs like Permanent Scar and Truth Gonna Hurt You. On the latter, he juxtaposed the usual boasts (“I live the high life, sexing, syrup and money”) with a confession: “Feel like sinkin, I’m in sand / Some things you wouldnt understand.

On Honest, hes ready to make the listener understand. The album starts strong, with Future oozing confidence on the full-throated boasts of Look Ahead and T-Shirt. “Put the pussy on a nigga tongue / ‘Til the pussy juice runnin’ down my lungs, he shouts on the lead cut, Ain’t another better feel...

Movement Ivory
Apr 22, 2014 10:19am | StereoGum

Last month we heard Movement’s “Like Lust,” a tidal wave of a song that washes over you like Burial giving up debating whether to make a trip-hop song or a post-rock song and deciding to make both. “Ivory,” another track from the Australian trio’s upcoming self-titled EP, maintains that ghostly feeling but feels more like chopped and screwed house music with a complementary ’80s guitar solo. These guys sure understand how to stretch the imagination! Listen below.

Today, RVNG Intl. duo Blondes announced their new Rewire EP, a 4-track reworking of cuts from 2013′s Swisher, featuring remixes from Simian Mobile Disco, Claro Intelecto, Function and Huerco S. And we don’t even have to wait for it, because the EP also drops today.

With that news comes the album’s first streaming track, a Huerco S. reshaping of Blondes’ thumping house track, Wire. The remix is more mangled and metallic-sounding, with industrial flares and bruised percussion. Scope the track and the Rewire tracklist below and read our Q&A with Blondes here.

Tracklist For Rewire:
01. Swisher (Simian Mobile Disco Remix)
02. Wire (Claro Intelecto Remix)
03. Wire (Huerco S. Remix)
04. Wire (Function Remix)

Owen Pallett Song For Five & Six Video
Apr 22, 2014 10:06am | StereoGum

The Canadian art-pop auteur and violin virtuoso Owen Pallett will release his new album In Conflict, and “Song For Five & Six,” which rides a wriggling John Carpenter-esque synth oscillation to some unexpected places, is the latest album song that Pallett has shared, after “The Riverbed” and “On A Path.” Director Jeff Scheven’s video for “Song For Five & Six” has dancers from Canada’s National Ballet School performing an intense, graceful, emotive dance that Robert Binet, Choreographic Assistant of the National Ballet Of Canada, choreographed. I know basically nothing about ballet, but I found it to be pretty entrancing. Watch the video below.


Tomas Barfod Busy Baby (Feat. Nina K)
Apr 22, 2014 10:00am | StereoGum

Danish producer Tomas Barfod teamed with Nina Kinert aka Nina K on “Pulsing,” the title track from his great winter EP and one of many fine songs on his upcoming full-length Love Me. “Pulsing” wasn’t Barfod’s first collaboration with Kinert, and as we’re reminded today, it also wasn’t his last. Today Barfod unveiled “Busy Baby,” another Love Me track featuring vocals by Kinert that continues their hot streak while plunging what is ostensibly club music even deeper into synth-pop. This ain’t your average DJ/diva situation. Listen below.


Watch Chromeo Do Come Alive & Jealous On Kimmel
Apr 22, 2014 9:56am | StereoGum

Synth-funk duo Chromeo are getting ready to put out their new album, White Women, next month. Last week they shared a new song featuring Ezra Koenig, and before that they did one with Toro Y Moi. This week they stopped by Jimmy Kimmel to perform the aforementioned Toro-collab “Come Alive” and “Jealous” to a big outdoor crowd. Watch both videos below.


El-P and Killer Mike recruit Zach De La Rocha and Travis Barker for Run the Jewels 2
Apr 22, 2014 9:54am | Cosequence Of Sound

El-P and Killer Mike have given us a further look inside the sessions for Run the Jewels 2. Earlier this week, they shared a snippet of new music from the follow-up to their thunderous 2013 self-titled debut. Now, they’ve shared a few photos from inside the studio.

Of note is that presence from Rage Against the Machine frontman Zach De La Rocha and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. By the sound of it, both men will be appearing on the album. “Yes it is really happening,” El-P wrote on his Instagram. Meanwhile, Barker wrote on his own account, “In the studio listening to #RunTheJewels2 with @killermikegto #ELP and #ZachDeLaRocha. Nuthin short of amazing.”

Run the Jewels 2 is expected to see light later this year.

London Grammar Sights Video
Apr 22, 2014 9:52am | StereoGum

London Grammar’s “Sights” has already been a very popular song (as has the remix by Disclosure acolyte Tourist), and now it’s gotten a music-video treatment by director Giorgio Testi. Shot mostly in one elegantly sweeping take, it begins intimately, with the band performing in a stylishly lit space (plenty of lens flare here), before pulling out to the audience. It ends with a little camera trick of faux-seamlessness that’s seen used everywhere from Pharrell’s 24-hour video for “Happy” to Hitchcock’s “one-take” movie Rope. It’s a cool effect, and one that sneaks up on you due to the way London Grammar’s performance (and “Sights” in general) lulls you into such a comforting place. Watch it below.


Behemoth, 1349, Goatwhore & Inquisition brought the Metal Alliance tour to Irving Plaza (pics)

Behemoth @ Irving Plaza - 4/19/14

Aside from perplexing openers Black Crown Initiate, whom I missed, every band on this bill was both ungodly tight and steeped in lovably familiar theatricality. Inquisition and 1349 both opted for the classic Scandinavian corpsepaint-'n'-spikes look; the latter's bassist bizarrely chose to wear a robe. (Mismatched costume levels among metal band members are always funny; it's like when album personnel notes credit Nekroshaman, Maniacal, Caligula, and Steve.) Ben Falgoust of Goatwhore might be better at metal-frontman posturing than anyone I've seen -- he strikes badass pose after badass pose for the entire set every time they play, all without his powerful voice ever faltering.
This year's edition of the Metal Alliance Tour -- which features Behemoth, 1349, Goatwhore, Inquisition, & Black Crown Initiate -- hit NYC last Friday (4/19) at Irving Plaza. (The entire tour, aside from Behemoth, would go on to hit Saint Vitus the following night.) That's an excerpt of my Invisible Oranges writeup on the show above. Read the rest and check out pictures at IO. More pictures are in this post and they continue below...

I dont think Ive ever heard a tune so defiled by a single instrument: Daphni, Slum Village and more reviewed in the FACT Singles Club
Apr 22, 2014 9:43am | Fact Magazine

Each week on the FACT Singles Club, a selection of our writers work their way through the new music of the week gone by.

With the way individual tracks are now consumed, the idea of what constitutes a single has shifted dramatically in the last half a decade, and its for this reason that the songs reviewed across the next pages are a combination of 12 vinyl releases, mixtape cuts, Soundcloud uploads and more. All are treated equally well, most of the time. On the chopping block this week: TRC and Murlo, Daphni, Diamond Version and more.

White Lung tackle body dysmorphia in new song, Snake Jaw
Apr 22, 2014 9:42am | Chart Attack

Last night, Rookie Magazine published a thoughtful, thorough interview with White Lung singer Mish Way about her writing and musical personae, feminism, body image, control, strength and perception and Trojan horsed it into a premiere for the Vancouver punk bands great new song, Snake Jaw.

And so even though the song isnt embeddable here, well just send you over to Rookie. What Mish says is more interesting than anything Id come up with anyway. Here's her explanation:

That songs about body dysmorphia and its residuals. I feel like I there are two women battling in my head sometimes: my completely confident self who can tell anyone to fuck off at the flick of a finger, and this other woman who hates herself, her body, and her mind, not because she actually hates herself, but because she has been told by her culture to hate herself for not being MORE, BETTER, THINNER, PRETTIER. Being crippled by a hatred for your own bodywhy? How did that happen to our fucking culture?

Snake Jaw is about the fact that womenmyself includedstill struggle so much with the idea of what were supposed to be and what were supposed to look like, and how that pertains to our sexuality, our power, our attractiveness, and even our intelligence. Its that battle were constantly fighting. We live in a country where women go to bed hungry, not because they dont have anything to eat, but because theyre worried about getting fat. That is fucked up.


Track Premiere: Challenger Sweater Weather
Apr 22, 2014 9:35am | CMJ


As we collectively try to will nature to turn sweater weather into t-shirt weather, Challenger, the NYC indie outfit lead by producer/songwriter John Ross, is making us feel warm and snug with the bobbing synths of Sweater Weather, off the band’s upcoming self-released album, Back To Bellevue, out May 27. With the cinematic builds, we might as well be awkwardly sharing cocoa with our teen love next to fire in a wood-paneled ski lodge as if we’re lounging about in a John Hughes flick, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Ross has previously worked as a film and television composer. Listen to Sweater Weather below.
