Sep 2, 2014 3:45pm | StereoGum

Wilco rose from the ashes of Uncle Tupelo in 1994, which means they’ve been a band for 20 years now. And to mark that occasion, they’ve got a few things in the works, as a recent post on their website announces. The band hasn’t unveiled any details yet, but they’ve got plans to release their first best-of collection, as well as a box set of rarities. And they’ve also announced a short, celebratory fall tour. Check out the dates below.

No Joy played Brooklyn Night Bazaar, add Mercury Lounge date w/ Tonstartssbandht after MHOW w/ Deafheaven
Sep 2, 2014 3:34pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

No Joy @ BKNB 8/30/2014 (via @brooklynvegan instagram)

No Joy were in NYC over the weekend, playing Brooklyn Night Bazaar on Saturday night as part of a lineup that included Black Pus (Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt), Cousin Brian, and Flagland. Set against projections of (the reunited) Blood Brothers live footage, the Montreal group peppered their set with new material -- it's been about a year and a half since Wait to Pleasure -- along with songs from their two albums and EPs. Volume has always been in their arsenal, but No Joy seemed extra vociferous on Saturday and was easily the loudest set I've personally heard at BKNB. Perhaps they're just gearing up to compete in the loudness wars with soon-to-be tourmates Deafheaven. That tour kicks off in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 14 (sold out).

New York will get yet another chance to see No Joy as they'll play Mercury Lounge on September 15, the day after the MHOW show. That one is with their MTL pals Tonstartssbandht and tickets for the Mercury Lounge show go on sale Wednesday (9/3) at noon. Updated tour dates are listed below...

Diarrhea Planet Platinum Girls Video
Sep 2, 2014 3:31pm | StereoGum

So many of the iconic shows we grow up with end up seeming dated and dumb when we view them as adults. The Adventures Of Pete And Pete is not one of those shows. Seriously, if anything, it’s better in hindsight. When you’re a little kid, the character of Nona’s dad is nothing more than an overprotective square, but watch it as an adult and — holy shit that’s Iggy Pop! It was all so perfect: school bullies with personas better than some Bond villains; Steve Buscemi as school guidance counselor; Michael Stipe selling Sludgesicles; and especially the excellent opening theme song by Polaris.


Listen: James Williamson re-records early Stooges song Im Sick Of You with The Orwells Mario Cuomo

While the future of The Stooges remains unclear, guitarist James Williamson will forge on with his own solo album later this fall. Re-Licked features 16 “lesser-known Stooges tracks properly recorded and mixed for the first time.”

In addition to being backed by live Stooges members Steve Mackay, Toby Dammit, and Mike Watt, Williamson has recruited a handful of A-list lead singers. That list includes Dead Kennedys Jello Biafra, Mark Lanegan, The Kills Alison Mosshart, Primal Screams Bobby Gillespie, Ariel Pink, and many more.

Our first preview of the record comes in the form of “I’m Sick Of You”, Williamsons collaboration with The Orwells own Mario Cuomo. A gruff and propulsive number that features Cuomo growling over feverish riffs, the track is said to be “one of the very earliest songs (Williamson)] wrote with Iggy (Pop) back in around late 1970.”

Listen in below (via BrooklynVegan).

Re-Licked is due out on October 29th via Leopard Lady Records. Check out the albums official tracklist and artwork below.

Re-Licked Tracklist:
01. Head On The Curve (w/ Jello Biafra)
02. Open Up And Bleed (w/ Carolyn Wonderland)
03. Scene Of The Crime (w/ Bobby Gillespie from Primal Scream)
04. She Creatures Of The Hollywood Hills (w/ Ariel Pink)

Rare disco version of John Carpenters Assault on Precinct 13 theme set for vinyl reissue
Sep 2, 2014 3:21pm | Fact Magazine

A special disco version of John Carpenter‘s influential theme to Assault on Precinct 13 has been around for years, but you’d be excused for having missed it.

The track was commissioned for the film itself back in 1976 and masterminded by British 60s legend Kenny Lynch, who had up-and-coming Trinidadian Jimmy Chambers to pen a vocal accompaniment to Carpenter’s easily-recognizable original. The result was memorable disco theme ‘You Can’t Fight It’, but for some reason it ended up only being attached to the Italian version of the film itself and after a small 7″ run disappeared into obscurity.

Thanks to Fly By Night Music founder Lorenzo we now have the opportunity to finally clasp our hands around a remastered pressing of the track. Reportedly the label boss went to great lengths to secure the rights, and is set to press the track to 10″ and back it with a beefed-up edit from Riccio.

‘You Can’t Fight It’ will be released on November 3 on 10″ vinyl only via Fly By Night Music, and you can hear the original track below.

Album Of The Week: Yob Clearing The Path To Ascend
Sep 2, 2014 3:10pm | StereoGum

The TV miniseries Cosmos, both in its O.G. Carl Sagan form and its rebooted Neil DeGrasse Tyson iteration, works, if you want it to, as a smart science lesson for kids. It’s a lionization of the iconoclasts, throughout history, who helped us understand now the universe works, and an approachable science-fictony way to teach science facts without making kids feel like they’re in class. But neither one became a stoner favorite by explaining scientific concepts to kids. They do that, sure, but they also work on a blow-your-fucking-mind level, mostly by pointing out the tiny infinitesimal place that we occupy within the larger universe — a larger universe that, for all we know, is just one speck in a universe of universes. Watching Cosmos is, among other things, an exercise in challenging your imagination by making yourself feel as small as possible. Another way to do that same thing: Spend some time with Clearing The Path To Ascend, the new album from the Portland doom metal band Yob, which is practically a universe unto itself. You can’t just throw Clearing The Path on and go about your day. It’s an album that forces you to enter a deep-concentration zone where you stop thinking about where one song ends and another begins, where you become a bug trapped in its amber.


Listen: GRMLNs new song White Lung//Black Lung
Sep 2, 2014 3:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

When singer-songwriter Yoodoo Park, aka GRMLN, moved from Japan to Southern California a few years back, he immediately distilled his music with the regions carefree dynamic and innately sunny vibes. The result was 2012s Explore EP and last years Empire full-length, both of which were born out of a romantic approach to free-wheeling pop-punk. Now, after lengthy touring and a bit of personal reflection, Park finds himself exploring much darker waters on his sophomore album, Soon Away, due out September 16th via Carpark Records.

The 10-track effort was written in Japan and while Park was traveling stateside. During the latter, Park holed himself up in Different Fur Studios in San Francisco alongside Empire collaborators/producers Patrick Brown and Sean Paulson. He recruited friend and drummer Keith Frerichs and his brother/bassist Tae San Park to round out the recording lineup

According to a press release, the result is an “aggressive album, darker and heavier than whats come before. While it carries these characteristics, theres a certain peace to Soon Away, thanks to Parks personal growth. The album grapples with letting go and getting used to good-byes. The singer-guitarist sees the constant changes of life allowing people to embrace the true nature of living. The teachings of Krishna were an inspiration to Park while writing the record and its a fo...

Made In America Philadelphia In Words & Photos
Sep 2, 2014 2:47pm | StereoGum

Made In America has always struck me as an odd festival. In these still early years for the event, it’s a somewhat small entity. Two days as opposed to others’ four or five, or others’ double weekends; four stages in somewhat close quarters on a shut-down Benjamin Franklin Parkway; a lineup of a size where, somehow, you don’t really have to worry about significant conflicts between artists you want to see. But, of course, it has a bigger pedigree — you know, Jay Z, but also the fact that it’s got big old Budweiser logos emblazoned everywhere. For a young festival, it has had some seriously major acts involved, and this year they expanded to Los Angeles. This was my first year attending Made In America, and while I imagine the powers behind it could drive it into someday being one of the big monolithic festivals, one of those that serve as a major marking point in the summer’s trajectory, for the moment it felt refreshingly local and sensible to navigate. It didn’t need to be too much of an extravaganza.


College Professor Builds English Course Around Kendrick Lamars Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City
Sep 2, 2014 2:39pm | StereoGum

Several reviewers compared Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d. city to James Joyce’s modernist novel Ulysses, in that both of them chronicled the twists and turns of a day in the life of a young urbanite. The comparison wasn’t lost on Adam Diehl, a professor at Georgia Regents University, who built an entire English course using Lamar’s album as a prism to explore other similar stories in film and literature. As USA Today reports, “Good Kids, Mad Cities” will touch on works by Joyce, James Baldwin, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Spike Lee among others. Here’s how the course is described at the university’s website:

Taking its name from Kendrick Lamars 2012 album, this course will examine the role of urban living on the development of young people. In Kendricks case, “the streets sure to release the worst side of my best” (Lamar 58). By studying and analyzing various literature, films, and K. Dots album, we will consider what effects our characters’ surroundings have on who they become as adults. The cities we will be visiting, in our imaginations, are Dublin, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Assignments will include a substantial research paper, stemming from the topics inherent in our texts; students should also expect other writing assignments, such as short papers and online discussion posts.

Sounds like fun. Good idea, Adam Diehl!


Radiohead: Weve got our best record still to come
Sep 2, 2014 2:39pm | Cosequence Of Sound

In projects past, Radioheads members have shied away from discussing their plans, but that hasn’t been the case with their forthcoming ninth LP. Guitarist Jonny Greenwood has already let fans in on a timetable for their recording sessions, and divulged that he and Thom Yorke have begun sending song ideas to one another. Now, in two separate interviews with UK media, drummer Phil Selway further adds to the hype by discussing his goals for the album.

The most profound quote comes from Selway’s recent interview with BBC Radio (listen below).”There’s always that sense that our best record is still to come. There’s still a lot creativity we can do together,” he told DJ Mary Anne Hobbs.

Selway explained that the band members’ various side projects will only enhance their creativity. (Selway is gearing up for the release of his sophomore solo album, while Yorke and Nigel Godrich spent the last year recording and touring as Atoms For Peace. Jonny Greenwood, meanwhile, scored the new Paul Thomas Anderson film, Inherent Vice).

“We just took 18 months away from [the band]. When we get back together, we’ll be bringing new experiences,” Selway explained. “That immediatly brings a whole new energy and drive to it.
