Watch: Krill – “Peanut Butter” Video
Oct 1, 2014 2:35pm | CMJ

Boston’s guitar-wielding freakazoids Krill go horrifyingly literal in their new video for Peanut Butter. How literal, you ask? Well, when they’re not playing in some vacant lot, they’re partying with peanut butter. Eating peanut butter sure, but also squeezing peanut butter like a stress ball, licking peanut butter off each other’s bodies, snorting peanut butter, slapping someone with a handful of peanut butter and so much more. But we all know there is such a thing as too much peanut butter, and one unfortunate party guest turns into a deadly PSA for moderation in peanut butter consumption.

The track will appear on an upcoming 4-way split EP with LVL UP, Radiator Hospital and Ovlov. Watch the video below.

Preview Law & Order: SVUs Episode Inspired By The Jay Z/Solange Elevator Incident
Oct 1, 2014 2:08pm | StereoGum

It’s probably not a surprise that Law & Order: SVU has put together an episode inspired by the famous Jay Z/Solange elevator fight. The ripped-from-the-headlines thing is, after all, what this show does. Right now, some Law & Order writer is probably trying to figure out how to work the Wiz Khalifa/Amber Rose divorce into an episode. But it’s one thing to know it’s coming, and it’s another to see it in action. And below, you can behold a clip of the episode, which apparently also takes inspiration from the Ray Rice and Donald Sterling stories, completing the rare online-feeding-frenzy trifecta. It’s hard to say how the clip will fit into the episode, but it’s definitely an elevator fight, and Stacy Keach is definitely in it. Watch it below.

Is Aphex Twin A 9/11 Truther?
Oct 1, 2014 1:53pm | StereoGum

Aphex Twin may be the visionary who changed dance music and who released one of the year’s best albums. But he is also a socially awkward white man who owns lots of computer equipment. And as such, maybe it’s not a surprise that he “absolutely” believes the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. As Gigwise points out, in new Q interview, Richard D. James copped to agreeing with every online conspiracy theory he comes across, partly because he thinks it makes life more fun: “When you follow stuff on the internet about Illuminati, New World Order, aliens, even if none of it’s true, it’s just a thousand times better than any science fiction film that’s ever been written… I do believe pretty much all of it. You can’t only believe things which can be proven. It’s boring. Loads of things are unproven, but it doesn’t stop you believing in them.” Mark Ruffalo agrees. James of course does not have a reputation for being very truthful in interviews, but this a dumb thing to lie about.

Lucinda Williams @ Rough Trade 9/29/2014

On past albums Ms. Williams has portrayed herself at moments of rage, excess and grief; now she prefers stability. Her songs are fully aware of wounds and pitfalls, but they're more likely to be looking back or looking outward. Ms. Williams shows her kindly side in songs like "Temporary Nature (of Any Precious Thing)" "Stand Right by Each Other" and "When I Look at the World," which admits, "I've been a total wreck" before it goes on to cherish "the world and all its glory."

The surly, righteously wrathful Ms. Williams hasn't disappeared. She's still seething, and revealing some lingering pain, in "Cold Day in Hell" and "Big Mess," each a good riddance to an ex. And she's still thinking about loneliness: in "Wrong Number," which gradually reveals a tale of trouble and abandonment, and in "This Old Heartache," an old-fashioned honky-tonk tune that conceals neat craftsmanship behind the tearful scrape of her singing. - [NY Times]

Lucinda Williams celebrated the arrival of her first self-released album, the double-length Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone at Rough Trade on Monday (9/29). (Rough Trade, the label, put out Lucinda's acclaimed 1988 self-titled album.) Accompanied by guitarist Stuart Mathis (who played in The Wallflowers), Williams performed stripped-down versions of songs old and new. Pictures from the Rough ...

DVS You Goddamn Right
Oct 1, 2014 1:31pm | StereoGum

Earlier this year, New York warehouse-rap wiseacre DVS collected a bunch of his past tracks on a mixtape called Mutant League. It’s one of my favorite mixtapes of the year, despite the fact that some of its tracks are years old. He’s been at work on DVTV, his first proper studio effort, for what feels like forever, and now it’s apparently about to come out. First single “You Goddamn Right” is a slurry fast-talking verbiage pile-up with a blipping, off-kilter beat from producer Hot Sugar. If Joe Pesci had ever joined Cannibal Ox, he might’ve sounded something like this guy. Listen below.


Band To Watch: Fiancé + Stream EP1 (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 1, 2014 1:27pm | StereoGum

Fall started for real last week, but here in New York, you wouldn’t quite know it yet. There’s that gradual transition between seasons, some days you wouldn’t want to walk around in anything other than a t-shirt and shorts. Then, some evenings bring a bite of chilliness, a reminder that this is only an afterglow you’re enjoying. The tipping point usually arrives in the beginning of October, and probably will do just that sometime next week. Appropriately, next week will also bring the release of the debut EP by Fiancé called EP1. It’s a collection of songs that perfectly embody the sensation of summer ending.


Listen: Harrison Lipton – “Think Twice”
Oct 1, 2014 1:22pm | CMJ

We recently heard New York composer and musician Harrison Lipton in Mister Lies’ doe-eyed new single, High. Now, Lipton’s debut single has caught our attention. Think Twice builds like a soft rainfall, layering clanking, hollow beats over muted keys and light string arrangements, thanks to production help from Dayspired. Plus there’s Lipton’s voice: a smoky, secretive croon that sounds like it could warm up a cold room. Listen below.

Stevie Nicks Mabel Normand & Watch Chain
Oct 1, 2014 1:09pm | StereoGum

The new Stevie Nicks album 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault is a collection of the singer’s old, never-released songs, most of which she wrote decades ago. (We’ve posted her songs “The Dealer” and “Lady.”) Nicks wrote the LP track “Mabel Normand” in 1985, and it’s about a cocaine-addicted silent movie star who died in 1985. Nicks was dealing with her own problems with the drug when she wrote the song. Of Normand, Nicks says, “She was really walking on the edge for a lot of her life. And I was walking on the edge, too… It was really important to me to get this song out. It’s really about what drugs can do to you. I, unlike Mabel, managed to get a hold of it.” The song has that classic Fleetwood Mac studio-rock gleam, and you can hear it below. Also below, stream a richly harmonic rocker called “Watch Chain” originally from the Bella Donna era.


Delta Spirit began their 3-night NYC run at Mercury Lounge (pics, setlist), playing Bowery tonight & MHOW on Thursday

Folk rockers Delta Spirit are currently on the road in support of their newest album Into the Wide (out now), and last night (9/30) they officially began their multi-night NYC run after a private Ad Week party at Spotify's offices during the day. Last night's show was at Mercury Lounge, was the smallest one and had them going on late at 10:45 and playing until almost 12:30. Pictures of that show, including one of the setlist, are in this post.

They continue tonight (10/1) at Bowery Ballroom with Streets of Laredo and Thursday (10/2) at MHOW with Peter Matthew Bauer of The Walkmen. Like last night's Merc show was, those two are both sold out.

Iconic boogie rockers ZZ Top will be on tour next year now that bassist Dusty Hill is recovered from a hip injury that caused the band's tour with Jeff Beck to be cut short this past August (including a show at Jones Beach).
