Bill Callahan unveils dub version of recent album Dream River
Dec 5, 2013 2:44pm | Fact Magazine
Best known for his work under the Smog moniker, Bill Callahan isn’t exactly the first artist you’d expect to drop a dub record.
He hinted at his new direction with an earlier dub of Dream River‘s ‘Javelin Unlanding’, but now Callahan has announced that there’s an entire album of versions on the way. Brilliantly entitled Have Fun With God, the record should give a very different spin on Callahan’s inimitable and effortlessly charming songs, and we can’t wait to hear how it turns out.
Have Fun With God will be released on January 21 via Drag City, and you can hear ‘Javelin Unlanding’ below.
King Krule played Webster Hall with Ratking (pics)

King Krule @ Webster Hall, 12/4/2013
Gangly and dressed like he just came from church, King Krule is an unlikely heartthrob, but there was definitely swooning going on at last night's show at a very packed Webster Hall (12/4), part of his current tour. Archy Marshall is still only 19 but comes off like a person floating out of time, with an appealingly croaky voice that sounds 20 years his elder, and a style that seems equal parts folk troubadour and hip hop MC (with a love of acid jazz), with an impenetrable South London accent straight out of a Ken Loach or Mike Leigh film. It shouldn't work, but it does, probably because he's not thinking about it too much -- for me, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon is one of this year's most appealing debuts. Live, King Krule is a four-piece and Marshall has a talented band (a very good drummer) capable of pulling off the album's lopey swagger. Folks were hanging on every marble-mouthed word.
Opening last night's show was rap trio Ratking, a pairing that isn't as odd as it might seem on record. Pictures and KK's setlist from Webster Hall are in this post.

updated Nothing Changes schedule +++ new videos/streams from Natural Assembly, Batillus, Andy Stott & more
Dec 5, 2013 2:35pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Wyatt Marshall
Mueran Humanos at Nothing Changes - 12/4/13 (via D.j.
England's industrial dark wave specialists Natural Assembly released a music video for their new song "When We Two Parted," and it's a good'un. A mix of WWII-era footage of London, sped-up flowers blooming and concert footage presented in a silent film visual style make for a dark and ominous canvas over which the seriously dance-y, synthed-out track plays. Love those drowned, echoing vocals. "When We Two Parted" is the first song off of a forthcoming Natural Assembly release due out early next year. If there was a ever a band that should play Nothing Changes, Natural Assembly is it. Check out the video below.
Speaking of below-Delancey's dark/no/cold wave party of record, Nothing Changes marched into December last night with a performance by the Argentine-German synth-pop duo Mueran Humanos (pictured above), who are currently in town recording a follow-up to their 2010 self-titled at Heaven Street Records. Did you go? Good time?
Nothing Changes also just announced that Dominick Fernow of Prurient, Vatican Shadow and Hospital Productions fame will be DJing the previously discussed Clay Rendering (12/11) show which also has Christopher Hansell (Sacred Bones) and Ning Bong (Raspberry Bulbs) DJing. More just-announced No...
Video: David Bowie, Id Rather Be High (Venetian Mix)
Dec 5, 2013 2:27pm | Chart Attack
Those EDM songs about partying like there's no tomorrow will seem even more corny once you see the wartime parties in the I'd Rather Be High (Venetian Mix) clip from David Bowie and director Tom Hingston. Buy the track on December 16th on a 12" along with James Murphy's Love Is Lost remix.
Listen: Arctic Monkeys new song Youre So Dark
Dec 5, 2013 2:19pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Arctic Monkeys are some consistent fellas, whose B-sides are better than most other bands’ A-sides. Don’t believe me? From AM-era alone, we’ve been treated to “2013″ and Stop the World I Wanna Get Off With You. Now, check out another leftover, a slow burner entitled “You’re So Dark” (via We All Want Someone). It serves as the B-Side to “One For the Road” (hence the artwork).
Arctic Monkeys Youre So Dark
Dec 5, 2013 2:03pm | StereoGum
I haven’t conducted a scientific survey or anything, but it sure seems like Stereogum readers seem more annoyed at us for omitting Arctic Monkeys’ AM from our albums-of-the-year list than for omitting any other album. Those readers may have a point; AM is a tough, confident, generally badass piece of rock music. The band is about to release the album track “One For The Road” as a single, and they’ve got a good one as a B-side: The simmering, intense, oddly soulful “You’re So Dark.” Hear it below.

Demdike Stare Fail & Null Results
Dec 5, 2013 1:55pm | StereoGum
Demdike Stare has fairly quietly released a handful of 12″ singles this year. They always come in the factory default sleeve you see above, all simply titled “Test Pressing” and separated by a number. These releases have been some of the most exciting electronic music of the year, dense sprawling tracks as terrifying as they are propulsive. Now, after a teaser we saw a few weeks ago, it looks like they saved the best for last. Testpressing #004 begins with the ominous slow burn of “Fail,” building around a steady 4/4 pulse and wailing industrial sounds. It sounds like house music reserved for the darkest and hottest part of hell. It’s a classic-sounding Demdike track, but in no way prepares you for what follows.
Rough Trade forced to cancel gigs at New York store following noise complaints

Quiet Company, Seryn @ Sams Burger Joint, San Antonio, December 4, 2013

Two takes on rootsy indie rock took the stage at this San Antonio haunt. Openers Quiet Company, from Austin, added keys and horns to the mix; while Seryn came from Denton, and wash their flannels in some slightly more backwoods waters. Both bands were equally moving, emotive and featured powerful lyrics while still getting the audience involved along the way.

The Rentals have returned, signed to Polyvinyl, new LP in 2014
Dec 5, 2013 1:45pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
We are not long from having every '90s band reunited. We just posted about Veruca Salt's original line-up getting back together and now comes word that Matt Sharp is reopening The Rentals counter with a new line-up of the band and a new album -- their first in 15 years -- due on Polyvinyl sometime next year.
The Rentals, which Sharp started as a Weezer (who are also planning a new album) side project before quitting that band in 1997, have been back in sporadic action since 2006, occasionally playing shows. Previous line-ups featured Petra Hayden and Maya Rudolph, but the new one is this: Jess Wolfe & Holly Laessig (Lucius), Ryen Slegr (Ozma), Lauren Chipman (The Section Quartet) and Patrick Carney (The Black Keys). The new album was recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville and New York City and was produced by Matt Sharp & The Rentals.
No other details have been released. While we wait for those, what other '90s bands would you like to see reunite? I'm still hoping for Ride.
Videos for "Friends of P" and "Waiting" below...

Perfect Pussy sign to Captured Tracks, announce tour, including 2 NYC shows this week & NYE at Baby's (dates & streams)

Perfect Pussy at 285 Kent in October (more by Amanda
One of this year's great unsigned bands, Perfect Pussy, are unsigned no longer. The Syracuse noise punk crew have announced that they've signed to Captured Tracks (DIIV, Mac DeMarco), and will release their debut full length on the label in early 2014. That LP will follow their 4-song I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling EP (streaming below), which they self-released earlier this year. Since that release, the band also offered another song, "Advance Upon the Real," to the new Rookie Mag compilation, Beyond Inversion, which benefits Rachael's Women's Center in DC. You can stream that track below too.
Perfect Pussy have also announced an extensive, almost-two-month long tour. It begins with two previously discussed NYC shows, including tonight (12/5) at NYU's E&L Auditorium with Ceremony, White Lung, and Sleepies; and Friday (12/6) at Shea Stadium with California X, Blessed State, Yvette, and Flagland. Admission for the NYU show is free to students and $5 at the door to the general public, and tickets for the Shea show are on sale now.
Then, after touring to the west coast and back, Perfect Pussy will celebrate New Year's Eve at Baby's All Right. The rest of the lineup for the Baby's NYE party hasn't been announced yet, but considering the occasion, chances are we can expec...
