Faith No More appear set for permanent return to music
Aug 19, 2014 7:46pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this year, Faith No More singer Mike Patton teased new music, writing on Twitter, The reunion thing was fun, but now its time to get a little creative. Then, no less than a week later, they debuted two new songs — including one titled “Motherfucker” — during a show at London’s Hyde Park. This evening, the band was confirmed as one of the headliners at next year’s Soundwave Festival in Australia, but they want to make one thing clear: the reunion tour is over.

Faith No More, who reunited in 2009, instead appear set for a full-fledged return to music. After news broke of Soundwave’s lineup, the band wrote on Twitter:

The Reunion Tour is over; in 2015 things are going to change.—
Faith No More (@FaithNoMore) August 19, 2014

Faith No More’s last album came in the form of 1997s Album of the Year.

Stream Rustie Green Language
Aug 19, 2014 6:52pm | StereoGum

Scottish producer Rustie is releasing his sophomore LP Green Language next week — it’s a characteristically adventurous and dense piece of electronic experimentation that expands on the sounds of his debut by contracting them down to just their essential parts. We’ve already heard “Raptor,” “Attak,” which featured Danny Brown, and the title track. Now you can stream the full thing via Pandora.

Stream: Rusties new album Green Language
Aug 19, 2014 6:09pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Rusties new album, Green Language, hits stores on August 26th through Warp Records. In anticipation, the album is streaming in full over at Pandora.

Rustie has turned his official website into an 8-bit style video game that also features an album playback. Users are encouraged to play through the world of Green Language, whereupon completing several missions and discovering every album track they’ll be “rewarded” with a full stream. Play the game here.

Green Language serves as the Scottish producers sophomore album and the follow-up to 2011s Glass Swords. The 13-track effort “reflects his early love of shoegaze, grime, trance and Dirty South hip-hop”, according to an official statement. It features contributions from Danny Brown, Gorgeous Children, and D Double E.

The LP is named after the term for “the language of the birds”, which is said to have “different meanings in Norse medieval literature, Renaissance magic and ancient mythology” and is considered by many to be “the key to perfect knowledge.” Its a rather fitting title, as Rustie says his own music mirrors this kind of ambiguous tongue.

“A big part of music for me is to say things that you cant say with words,” he explains in a press release. Its a language thats non-dualistic, that speaks to you directly to your emotions without the mind interfering with the messa...


Dark Blue announce debut LP for Jade Tree (stream a track)
Aug 19, 2014 5:59pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Dark Blue, the new-ish Philly band of Clockcleaner's John Sharkey III, Paint It Black/Ceremony's Andy Nelson and Strand of Oaks' Mike Sneeringer, recently signed to Jade Tree, and they've now announced that they'll release their debut album, Pure Reality, on the label on October 7 (pre-order). The album was produced by Jeff Zeigler (War on Drugs, Nothing) and its first single, "Here On My Street," is out now. Like the previous material we've heard from the band, it's a punked-up take on late '70s/early '80s post-punk/goth, as catchy as it is mopey. For a modern comparison, Merchandise fans will probably dig this.

Stream the new song, with the album tracklist, below...

Preview Drakes new song 6 God, plus new music from Earl Sweatshirt
Aug 19, 2014 5:26pm | Cosequence Of Sound

This afternoon, two very intriguing, albeit short snippets of new music surfaced online.

The first comes from in the form of an unreleased song by Drake rumored to be titled, “6 God”. The song was first debuted during a DJ set by Drake’s manager, Oliver El-Khatib, and today, a brief preview of the track’s studio version appeared on Instagram. Some have speculated that “6 God” could be the lead single to Drizzy’s upcoming LP, Views From The 6.

Also on Instagram today, Earl Sweatshirt posted teasers of two new, unreleased songs. Their origins are also unclear, though the Odd Future member recently canceled the remainder of his US tour to begin work on a new album.



The Dream Syndicate touring, playing first NYC show in over 25 years (dates)
Aug 19, 2014 5:19pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Dream Syndicate circa 2012

Dream Syndicate was one of the first bands from Los Angeles' psychedelic revival (misleadingly dubbed the paisley underground) to reach a national audience. While many of the movement's bands plumbed the Byrds/Buffalo Springfield or Pink Floyd archives for inspiration, Dream Syndicate's weird, obsessive lyrics, relentless noise maelstroms -- mixed with eerie/pretty otherworldly dirges and ballads -- and singer Steve Wynn's nasal rasping and ranting recalled the Velvet Underground, though (of course) they steadfastly denied that to be their intent. - [Trouser Press]
Steve Wynn just came through NYC with The Baseball Project and while that group still has a few innings on their 2014 tour, Steve's old "paisley underground" band The Dream Syndicate have been back in business as well. Wynn reformed the band in 2012 with '80s-era members Dennis Duck and Mark Walton, plus Miracle 3 guitarist Jason Victor and they've been playing sporadically ever since, including a North American run starting at next weekend's Bumbershoot festival in Seattle. The band will be playing their "first NYC show of the 21st" century at Rough Trade on November 15. (Not only that, it's their first NYC show since Reagan was President.) Tickets will be available soon via Ticketmaster.

When they reformed The Dream Syndicate were doing 1982's

Drive Like Jehu reunite, playing first show in 20 years
Aug 19, 2014 5:07pm | Cosequence Of Sound

After releasing two albums, San Diego-based post-hardcore outfit Drive Like Jehu disbanded in 1995, in part to allow founding member John Reis to pursue his other band Rocket From The Crypt. However, today, Drive Like Jehru announced a reunion show, marking their first performance in 20 years.

On August 31st, the band will play a free show at Balboa Park in San Diego, California. They will be accompanied by civic organist Dr. Carol Williams.

At the moment, it’s unclear if the band has any other shows planned. Below, revisit their Yank Crime highlight “Here Come The Rome Plows”.

The Unicorns release brand new* song Let Me Sleep
Aug 19, 2014 4:58pm | Chart Attack

The Unicorns' reunion continues. Shows with Arcade Fire, an unreleased Daniel Johnston track, and now "Let Me Sleep," a previously unreleased recording from the sessions that produced the reissued Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?. Their fan forum is going to freak.

It's a perfect anthem for hermits, souped up on that familiar undistilled pop (that rocking outro is the best) while finding engaging tension with the morose lyrics. It's a party underneath the covers you've pulled over your head and all your fears are cute little gremlins dancing on your chest. I guarantee that after one listen you'll think up the perfect excuse for not going out with your friends tonight.

The Unicorns' reissue of Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone? is out August 26 on CD, October 7 on vinyl via Caterpillar Records; pre-order it here.

Watch Nurse Hoppers Creepy Video From Jack Whites Immersive Medical-Themed Concert
Aug 19, 2014 4:58pm | StereoGum

Back in July, Jack White had a shitload of fun putting on a secret show in London built like a piece of interactive theater (and done in collaboration with the acting company that does Sleep No More, that interactive-theater thing everyone has been telling me to see since I moved to New York). It played around with the theme of lazarettos, which were basically leper colonies. Those shows were originally hinted at by a fake pharmaceutical company called Vescovo (who still have their website up here), and now a new video has come out teasing more.

Phil Collins Announces First Concert In 4 Years
Aug 19, 2014 4:54pm | StereoGum

Back in May we saw the long-dormant Phil Collins singing “In The Air Tonight” with middle-schoolers, but that wasn’t a proper Collins gig. This one is: On 12/6 he’ll headline the Dreaming On The Beach Concert at the Fillmore Miami Beach, his first concert in four years. It’s a benefit for the Little Dreams Foundation, the charity he co-founded with ex-wife Orianne Collins-Mejjati, and it will also feature Laura Pausini, Alejandra Guzmán, the Little Dreams band and “special guests.” Read more here.

Drive Like Jehu Are Playing A Reunion Show Less Than Two Weeks From Now
Aug 19, 2014 4:36pm | StereoGum

San Diego post-hardcore ragers Drive Like Jehu were one of punk’s rawest and most exhilarating groups. They shared members with the similarly awesome and influential Rocket From The Crypt, and together the bands spawned other fine likeminded acts including Hot Snakes, Obits, and the Night Marchers. Core members John Reis and Rick Froberg have stayed active over the years, but Drive Like Jehu haven’t taken the stage under the name Drive Like Jehu since 1995. That’s about to change: As Property Of Zack points out, the band has scheduled a single reunion show on 8/31 in San Diego. It’s at 7 p.m. at Balboa Park, it’s free for all ages, and according to Drive Like Jehu’s official website they’ll be “ACCOMPANIED BY CIVIC ORGANIST DR. CAROL WILLIAMS.” Get psyched up by listening to Drive Like Jehu’s classic 1994 LP Yank Crime below.
