Peter Gutteridge (The Clean, The Chills) playing first-ever US show in NYC; Seattle's Mega Bog & more also on the bill
Aug 27, 2014 2:46pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

North American fans of '80s/'90s kiwi pop have had it good lately. The Clean are touring in support of Merge's great (and affordably-priced) Anthology box set; Flying Nun has set up American offices and have reissued LPs by The Bats, The Verlaines and The Clean; and just today we got the news that Peter Jefferies would be touring for the first time in 20 years.

More news, though mainly just for folks in (or visiting) NYC. Peter Gutteridge happens to be in town and has been convinced to play a show while here -- his first-ever American performance. Gutteridge spent time in original line-ups of both The Clean and The Chills before starting noise-rock band Snapper in the early '90s. In 1989, he put out a solo album, Pure, which was reissued recently by 540 Records and which he'll be performing in full at the show. You can stream that in full below.

Also on the bill is Mega Bog, aka Seattle resident Erin Birgy, whose new album, Gone Banana is out September 23 on Couple Skate. (That label is now part of the Omnian Music Group umbrella which includes Captured Tracks, Flying Nun and more.) It's hazy, charming bedroom indiepop and you can stream a couple tracks from it below.

The Palisades show also has IJI of which Birgy is also a member, plus EZTV who make Marshal Crenshaw / Nick Lowe style powerpop (they were p...

Watch: together PANGEAs video for Badillac
Aug 27, 2014 2:44pm | Cosequence Of Sound

This year, together PANGEA released one of the best garage rock LPs of the year with Badillac. Now, the band has returned with a fresh video for the album’s title track.

Directed by Ryan Baxley, who also helmed FIDLAR’s Nick Offerman-starring pissfest for “Cocaine”, the visual for “Badillac” is less urine-soaked and much more spooky. Inspired by Young Frankenstein, the video finds the band members assuming the roles of Dr. Frankenstein, Igor, and Frankenstein’s monster for some horror-filled shenanigans. Watch it below (via The A.V. Club)

Theres a third Lewis album for sale
Aug 27, 2014 2:33pm | Chart Attack

Chart Attack's extensive profile of the Lewis mystery turned up the from-the-horse's-mouth revelation that since the recording of L'Amour, the Canadian singer's chilly, singular debut record, the uncovered artist had written "50 or 60" more albums. Some were recorded between 1998 and 2002 at a studio in Vancouver called Fiasco Brothers, which is now selling a record called Love Ain't No Mystery, recorded by Lewis under the alias Randy Duke (he claimed to be the son of eccentric tobacco heiress Doris Duke.) A digital copy can be yours for $10. No word on whether Lewis sees any of the profits.

Light In The Attic Records handled the reissues of L'Amour and Lewis's second album Romantic Times, and since discovering Lewis earlier this month in Canada, have said they won't repress CDs and vinyl of the records. But it looks like Fiasco Brothers have four years worth of albums, and if you have no qualms about buying it, they've got the product.

The previously unveiled "Heartbreak" can be heard below, along with "It's a Frail Thing," taken from a different unreleased album.

Listen to Trickys gloomy Sun Down, featuring pop outsider Tirzah
Aug 27, 2014 2:22pm | Fact Magazine

Another glimpse of Adrian Thaws.

Tricky will follow-up last year’s False Idols with his eponymous Adrian Thaws on September 8. We’ve already heard the electro-tinged ‘Nicotine Love’ and the abrasive ‘Lonnie Listen’, and his latest dispatch shows off yet another side of the Bristol veteran.

The gloomy, slo-mo ‘Sun Down’ surges like a spaghetti Western-gone-trip hop and features wonky pop singer Tirzah, who was brought in at the insistence of Tricky’s daughter (who appears on the album as Silver Tongue).

She called me and said dad will you work with Tirzah,” he says. “Thats my daughter A&Ring me, which is cool as fuck. Stream ‘Sun Down’ below.

Aug 27, 2014 2:20pm | CMJ

Ryan Hemsworth is playing a few shows in Japan this fall, and in anticipation of that he’s paired up with Japanese producer Tomggg for a bubbly, one-off single. So far this summer, Hemsworth has spearheaded Secret Songs, produced a bunch of other artists’ tracks (including a track on Heems and Riz MC’s recent Swet Shop EP) and scattered the internet with loosie collaborations. Cream Soda follows the hyperactive trend with hot crush vibes and squeaky, wet-shoe synths. Listen and download below.

Tour Dates For Ryan Hemsworth:
10/10 – Tokyo – Unit
10/11 – Nagoya – JB’s
10/12 – Osaka – Onzieme

The Killers Brandon Flowers to release new solo album in 2015
Aug 27, 2014 2:17pm | Cosequence Of Sound

The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers will release a new solo album next year, according to a new interview in NME. The follow-up to his 2010 debut, Flamingo, will be produced by Grammy-winning Vampire Weekend and HAIM producer Ariel Rechtshaid.

Although it’s still in the works, Flowers notes that, unlike Flamingo, the new album will not be entirely inspired by The Killers’ Las Vegas hometown. “People are going to interpret it how they will, but there’s only a little bit of Vegas in there,” he says.

Renowned producer Rechtshaid, however, proves to be an “incredible” influential force in the studio. “He’s taking me out of my comfort zone,” Flowers comments. “Normally I make demos and they’re pretty similar to how the song ends up. but he’ll take a song and be like, ‘I hear this’. It’s incredible — his palette and his range, what he’s able to say. At first we were butting our heads together, but now we’re hitting it off.”

He also spoke on the future of The Killers — who just released their greatest hits album, Direct Hits, last winter. “I wanna keep being in this band,” he claims. “I don’t think we’ll get too morbid about it, I think we wanna keep going.”

No word yet on a more solid release date for Flowers&rs...

Watch: The Both (Aimee Mann and Ted Leo) attend best wedding ever in video for Volunteers of America
Aug 27, 2014 2:12pm | Cosequence Of Sound

In “Volunteers of America”, the new video from Aimee Mann and Ted Leo (tka The Both), director Daniel Ralston offers viewers a front row seat to the most elegant and badass wedding of the year. Among the things youll see: a hip wedding band fronted by The Bangles own Susanna Hoffs; plenty of drinking; loads of sing-alongs facilitated by said booze; Ted Leo doing the worm (!); an impromptu performance by The Both; and, as should be the case for any party, an end-of-evening dip in the pool.

I thought that my own nuptials were top-notch thanks to an entire table of Jelly Bellys and Smore cookies and a motherflippin grilled cheese truck, but if I had the money, patience, sanity, and proclivity for self-flagellation, Id totally re-do my wedding to be exactly like this.

Watch the video below.

Aug 27, 2014 2:07pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Brooklyn psych rockers Prince Rupert's Drops are releasing the followup to 2012's solid Run Slow with a new album, Climbing Light, on November 11 via Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records. Its first single, "Dangerous Death Ray," is a trip back to the acid-induced sounds of the late '60s with groovy basslines, wah-pedal guitar solos, and equally throwback vocal melodies. It premieres in this post and can be streamed below.

The band plays around their hometown a good amount, and their next show will be this Friday (8/29) at Baby's All Right with Love As Laughter and August Wells. Tickets are on sale now.

Watch: Grimes Go (Feat. Blood Diamonds) Video
Aug 27, 2014 2:00pm | CMJ

Now that she’s one of the most prominent artists on the electro-pop scene thanks to the release of 2012’s Visions, Grimes released Go as a free download earlier this summer. The song, which she originally wrote for Rihanna, is one of her poppiest and most direct ever, featuring production work from Blood Diamonds. Today, Grimes and 4AD unveiled the video for the track, which is a cinematic, sci-fi mini-epic directed by Claire Boucher (Grimes herself) and her brother Mac. The video juxtaposes soaring desert landscape shots and medieval imagery with what Boucher says is her own futuristic interpretation of Dante’s Inferno. It’s quite a trip, and well worth the watch. Check it out below.

Watch: Delta Spirits video for From Now On
Aug 27, 2014 1:44pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Though Delta Spirit are currently based in Brooklyn, the quintet originally hails from the West Coast. With the new video for “From Now On”, the band members celebrate their roots by depicting a rustic slice of life back home.

Directed by Andrew Bruntel, the video documents life on a wholesome looking ranch, complete with cowboys roping cattle, riding around on horses, and gorgeous, panoramic views of the wide open plains. While Delta Spirit have been trending towards straightforward radio rock in recent years, this visuals fit nicely alongside the band’s early flirtations with Americana music.

Watch the video below (via Entertainment Weekly).

“From Now On” is off Delta Spirit’s upcoming fourth album, Into The Wide, due out September 9th via Dualtone Records.

CMJ Charts July 31, 2007: Spoons Legacy At No. 1
Aug 27, 2014 1:40pm | CMJ

Four years have passed since Spoon released a record, a gap much longer than weve seen from them in the past. But while Spoon might have been quiet, these were not four years of silence for its members. Frontman Britt Daniel formed the supergroup Divine Fits who made their way up the CMJ charts, peaking at No. 5, and drummer Jim Eno spent these years recording and producing bands at his Austin studio Public Hi-Fi. But now they’re back, and stronger than ever with a new label, a new band member, and a new album. College radio has long been a supporter of Spoon and that has not seemed to change for the slightest.

Spoon is sitting on the top of the CMJ Top 200 charts right now for a third week in the No. 1 spot with their new album, They Want My Soul. The top spot is not an unfamiliar one for these boys, as over the past 12 years, all five of their full length albums—Kill The Moonlight, Gimme Fiction, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, Transference and now They Want My Soul—have reached No. 1 on the CMJ charts. Lets take a look back at their chart topping success.

Next week happens to mark the anniversary of Spoons first appearance at No. 1, when Kill The Moonlight reached this position on the charts on September 3, 2002. Kill the Moonlight only held this position for one week before Sleater-Kinneys One Beat knocked it down to No. 2.

The Both Volunteers Of America Video
Aug 27, 2014 1:34pm | StereoGum

Earlier this year, alt-rock lifer buddies Aimee Mann and Ted Leo teamed up to form a new duo called the Both and to release a profoundly catchy self-titled power-pop debut. Both Mann and Leo had been funny in music videos before, and they’re just as funny together. Director Daniel Ralston, who previously did the band’s “Milwaukee” video, returns for their new “Volunteers Of America” clip, which takes place at a raucously drunken back-yard wedding. It gives us a rare opportunity to see Leo do the worm. The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs, Samhain’s London May, and the veteran character actor Russ Tamblyn all appear. Watch the video below.


Berghain bouncer designs Hugo Boss t-shirt line
Aug 27, 2014 1:33pm | Fact Magazine

Sven Marquardt isn’t just a bouncer: he’s also a photographer.

The infamous bouncer at Berlin’s Berghain has teamed with Hugo Boss for a limited edition line of t-shirts due this Autumn / Winter season. The black shirts each feature one of Marquardt’s stark photographs of men and their horses. No word yet on whether you’ll be allowed in Berghain while wearing one of the shirts.

Take a look below and head to the Hugo Boss website for more info. Earlier this year, someone combined Marquardt with Flappy Bird (remember that?). [via Mixmag]
