Tweens / PAWS / Lee Bains III @ Arlene's Grocery 10/22/2014

While Amanda was at Pianos on Wednesday (10/22), fellow BV photographer Chris La Putt was at nearby Arlene's Grocery for the Never Better CMJ day party where there was a rockin' bill of grungy Scottish trio PAWS, southern sleazy riffmongers Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires, poppy/punky Tweens, and Manchester, UK's attitude-heavy PINS. Then, as a palate cleanser, he swung by Rockwood Music Hall to catch soulful Brooklyn duo She Keeps Bees.

Pictures from those sets are in this post, with more below...

CMJ Releases Statement On Ebola
Oct 24, 2014 12:46pm | StereoGum

Yesterday, we learned the troubling news that Dr. Craig Spencer, the first New York resident to test positive for Ebola, had been out on Wednesday night at the Gutter, a Williamsburg bowling alley that had been hosting unofficial CMJ events. The coming shows at the Gutter were all canceled, with good reason. But the people behind CMJ have now issued a short statement saying that the festival would go on as planned. As Billboard reports, CMJ officials wrote this: “We have been diligently following the news on Ebola and will continue to be proactive of the situation and circumstances. At this time CMJ will continue on as scheduled and if anything should change we will act accordingly.”





Watch David Gilmour & Nick Mason Preview New Pink Floyd In Endless River Teaser
Oct 24, 2014 12:46pm | StereoGum

So far Pink Floyd have shared one song from farewell album The Endless River, “Louder Than Words.” The latest teaser video with David Gilmour and Nick Mason doesn’t reveal an entire track, but there are snippets of several unreleased songs. They also talk about the making of the album and how they didn’t want to alter the original 20-year-old sessions at first but eventually gave into their desire to keep creating. Check it out.

Led Zeppelin Rock And Roll Video
Oct 24, 2014 12:39pm | StereoGum

I love Led Zeppelin, but I’d say there’s a good third of their catalog that I can’t hear anymore. I don’t mean I don’t want to listen to it; I mean I cannot hear it — I’ve heard it so much that it’s just white noise, like the sounds of midtown traffic outside Stereogum’s offices. And for me, no song has been worn thinner than “Rock And Roll,” from “Led Zep IV,” which might as well be “Happy Birthday” by this point. So I love hearing alternate versions of these tracks, because if even one aspect of the mix is different, it can change my entire listening experience. Next Monday, Zep will release re-mastered, expanded versions of both “IV” and Houses Of The Holy, and those reissues will include a bunch of alternate takes, including this one, of “Rock And Roll.” Frankly, this take hews too close to the album version to actually reinvigorate the song for me, but according to Pagey, it offers a “different perspective.” Read his explanation and watch the lyric video for the track below.

Morrissey Contends With Shockingly Abysmal Italian Venues, Shops World Peace Re-Release
Oct 24, 2014 12:29pm | StereoGum

Morrissey’s latest True To You monologue includes a takedown of the venues he played on tour in Rome and Milan (“both abysmal — Milan quite shockingly abysmal”), but it’s more positive than your average Moz bitch-sesh. He also expresses an “over-emotional thanks” for those who attended his shows in Italy, Spain, and Portugal: “It has been fantastic for us, and it brings a new sense of accomplishment for which, again and again, we thank you.” He has kind words for the press in Spain and Italy and seems very excited that somebody finally invited him on TV to promote World Peace Is None Of Your Business.

CMJ: Twin Peaks, Happyness, Nai Harvest @ Rough Trade 10/23/14
Oct 24, 2014 12:11pm | StereoGum

Yesterday was a disgusting day in New York, and this is coming from someone whose favorite season is winter: wet coldness due to the obnoxiously persistent rain, and a particularly bone-cutting kind of wind (especially if you were, like me, near the East River). Given that, spending the day indoors, at an afternoon showcase at Rough Trade’s Williamsburg outpost, was a solid refuge for a Thursday.

Maxwell's open with new owners, hosting live music again
Oct 24, 2014 12:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Maxwell's in 2013 (more by Matt Schiels)

Hoboken venue Maxwell's closed as a music club in 2013 only to be sold and re-opened as a bar/restaurant earlier this year. When we last posted, we mentioned the new owners aren't ruling out live music, and now NJ.com reports that there will in fact be live music. It's a little different than the stuff Maxwell's used to have though:

"We definitely want to have music back in Hoboken," said [new co-owner Pete] Carr. "We're trying to engage the local community and offer a stage for the town's local indie bands to play." And with an initial spate of concerts that includes veteran NJ cover band the Nerds next Thursday, an Eric Clapton tribute band on Nov. 7, and DJ nights on Halloween weekend, Carr and [Evan] Dean seem enthusiastic about making original live music a staple at the venue again.

...Dean and Carr then reached out to some of the people driving Hoboken's current music, including musician and promoter Dave Entwistle, restauranteur and blogger Stephen Bailey, and producer/musician Chris Gibson. Because Entwistle and Bailey have been responsible for the Hoboken Music Awards since their inception, they'll be using their new role as curators for Maxwell's Tavern's back room to do a monthly HMA Indie Night and bring the best local bands to the venue's back room.

"I don't care what the naysayers say about this not being the old Maxwell's," said Bailey.

"This is a chance...


Klaxons Announce Final Tour
Oct 24, 2014 11:59am | StereoGum

Klaxons have been kicking around the music world since 2005, at the height of something called New Rave, when every young band in Britain seemed to be playing spunky, angular, dance-infused indie rock. Along with Bloc Party and the Arctic Monkeys, Klaxons were one of the best of them. They’ve accumulated a strong discography over the years, but their moment has come and gone, and they seem to realize it: Today on Facebook and Twitter the band announced that their upcoming tour dates will be their last. Here’s the message:

The Decemberists announce new album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World
Oct 24, 2014 11:58am | Cosequence Of Sound

The Decemberists have announced their latest album, What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World.

The album title and its artwork (seen above) were both revealed this morning via a mural located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg. Frontman Colin Meloy himself was on hand for the unveiling and performed a brand new song from the album, a jangly ditty entitled “Make You Better”.

Below, watch footage of Meloy performing “Make You Better” as well as “The Engine Driver”, from 2005’s Picaresque.

“Make You Better”:

“The Engine Driver”:

Hi NYers! Ill be the bearded and bespectacled guy at Bedford & 7th, busking new Decemberists songs. 11:30. Like, in 40 min. Come on by!

— colin meloy (@colinmeloy) October 24, 2014

What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World serves as The Decemberists’ seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2011’s The King Is Dead. A release date has not yet been revealed. Back in April, Meloy debuted another album track in “Carolina Low”.



This Weeks 5 Best Songs: Sleater-Kinney, Panda Bear, and more
Oct 24, 2014 11:57am | Chart Attack
This week's 5 best songs come from hours of diligent Bandcamp surfing, and checking our overstuffed company email accounts. Also, can I borrow $10,000 to wire to a Russian mogul? I promise he's going to change the way the world thinks about energy drinks.

Sleater-Kinney, "Bury Our Friends"

"...word got out last week that their career-retrospective box set Start Together would contain a hint to their reunion: a new 7" containing "Bury Our Friends."

Panda Bear, "Mr Noah"

"Panda Bear's played this song both times I've seen him live this year, and even as his other melodies rang throughout the venue, his masterful harmonious repetition - those "eh eh ehs!" - stood out."

Cult Of Youth, "Roses"

"A quick glance at the song's waveform indicates an ascent, and the journey "Roses" finds itself on is that, pulling from post-punk and folk traditions and marrying them into a storm, all with a craft befitting Ragon, owner of Brooklyn record store Heaven Street."

Brazilian Money, "Why Am I Still Standing Here?"

Brazilian Money by Brazilian Money

"Brazilian Money is a key figure in Montreal's rich subculture of insouciant-yet-irrepressible rock. "

Watch Noel Gallagher Join Johnny Marr On Smiths & Iggy Pop Songs In London
Oct 24, 2014 11:50am | StereoGum

Johnny Marr just released a new album, Playland, and Noel Gallagher just announced that he’s got a new album due out in March 2015, Chasing Yesterday, on which Marr will appear. So it doesn’t come as a huge surprise that Noel showed up at London’s Brixton Academy to join Marr onstage for a pair of songs: covers of Iggy Pop’s “Lust For Life,” and the Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now.” I’ve long been harboring an idle observation that Noel and Marr are physically morphing into two separate versions of the same exact person, the way old married couples do, and seeing them on stage together does little to dispute this observation. I like to imagine them sitting back with a cup of tea and bitching about their respective exes (ex-singers, I mean). “Thank god we don’t have to deal with all that anymore,” they must say. It must be nice. Anyway, you can watch footage of both “Lust For Life” and “How Soon Is Now” below.
