Stream RBMA grad Klokes aquatic Sea Levels EP
Apr 16, 2014 10:11am | Fact Magazine

Sea Levels EP" width="685" height="457" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-210992" />

The Melbourne-based producer explores ambient house and analogue techno on his new EP.

Kloke (aka Andy Donnelly) is a British ex-pat living in Australia. Following a 2012 release via Granholme, the Martyn-approved producer has teamed with Brooklyn’s Styles Upon Styles (which debuted last year with Archie Pelago’s Hall of Human Origins) for Sea Levels.

Living up to its title, the six-track EP follows “a narrative of apocalyptic tides and the oceanic sublime” and is heavy on “water-logged dread.” While ‘Mayfield’ and ‘Room With A View’ explore deep sea ambience with vinyl crackle and sub-bass doppler, tracks like ‘Flood’ and ‘Unlearning’ pummel with pneumatic rhythms and uneasy synth work; opener ‘Deep City’ and centerpiece ‘Ritual’ find grooves between the two poles.

Sea Levels is due out on April 22 in digital and limited vinyl formats; stream it below and pre-order it here.

Pink Mountaintops The Second Summer Of Love (Stereogum Premiere)
Apr 16, 2014 10:10am | StereoGum

Pink Mountaintops are gearing up to release Get Back, their first album in nearly half a decade. Outside of the head-scratchingly strange lead single “North Hollywood Microwaves,” featuring a gust rap from Annie Hardy, the band’s singles have been in the vein of the solid rock music we’ve known them for. Now you can hear their newest single, “The Second Summer Of Love,” a yearning Clash-style stomper. Listen to it below.


'All American Music Map' maps favorite music genres by state (NY is not very punk)
Apr 16, 2014 10:06am | Brooklyn Vegan

THIS IS WHERE PEOPLE LIKE PUNK (actual interactive map HERE)

Check out the 'All American Music Map' HERE. How'd they do it?

"We calculated musical taste scores using data from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (via the Martin Prosperity Institute) and state level music preferences from Wikipedia. The scores include music genre preference survey data and genre performer concentrations by metro, weighted by that metro's influence on the music scene. We took the scores for each metro and used a spatial statistics method called nearest neighbors to create the heatmap."
What were some of their findings? Well, "Punk is also a favorite all along the West Coast and in Nashville, Orlando, and Rochester. For those who prefer something heavier, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, and Milwaukee are where the most metalheads are located.", and Las Vegas loves indie, New York is not very punk but Seattle and Austin are. LA loves country but like NY is very diverse. More at...Movoto Real Estate Brokerage (?!?) (via TIME).

Raekwon will not be appearing on Wu-Tang Clans A Better Tomorrow
Apr 16, 2014 10:05am | Fact Magazine

After months of stalling, Wu-Tang figurehead RZA has finally revealed that Raekwon will not be rejoining the Clan for 20th anniversary album A Better Tomorrow.

Back in November of 2013, RZA noted that while most of the Wu had been excited to be laying down bars for the celebratory album, Raekwon simply hadn’t been pulling his weight, saying “Raekwon hasnt shown up at all.”

It appears that since that chat, nothing’s changed. RZA elaborated in a conversation with VladTV, saying “I havent had a chance to really talk to him about why not. All I see is the press going back and forth. But I would say that maybe creatively we on different paths. Im creatively different than I was in the 90s.”

RZA is no doubt referencing some of the Wu’s indifference to the group’s previous album, the psychedelic (and polarizing) 8 Diagrams, but it’s not time to despair just just. Raekwon will indeed be appearing on the limited edition album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which while only being pressed up in a single unit, is set to be taken to museums and art galleries soon. [via NME]

Percussions (Four Tet) Blatant Water Cannon & Ascii Bot
Apr 16, 2014 10:04am | StereoGum

After SXSW, Four Tet was on my flight from Austin to Charlotte. I saw him sitting up in first class, feet stretched out, drinking Naked juice and reading The Goldfinch, all casually baller. He looked like a man who knows how to live life. But given the ridiculous volume of his recent output, I’m almost surprised he wasn’t putting together a new track right there on his laptop. In recent months, he’s been crazy busy, producing albums for Omar Souleyman and Neneh Cherry, working with Jamie xx and Terror Danjah and whoever else, throwing new music up on the internet all the time. He’s now planning to release a couple of new singles under his Percussions alias, and he’s shared two new tracks, “Blatant Water Cannon” and “Ascii Bot.” Both tracks are long and sprawling, and both. “Blatant Water Cannon” introduces experimental IDM textures to a thumping four-on-the-floor dance tune, while “Ascii Bot” is more of a straight-up banger with a beautifully shimmering synth loop. Stream both of them below.

Tera Melos made a video for "Slimed" (watch), touring w/ The Dillinger Escape Plan & Vattnet Viskar (dates)
Apr 16, 2014 9:54am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Melodic math rockers Tera Melos released their solid X'ed Out album last year via Sargent House, and just gave one of its tracks, "Slimed," video treatment. The video follows a couple of costumed guys with a shitty acoustic guitar from the shower to the swimming pool, and shows all their antics (including playing with a dolphin fountain) along the way. The video premieres in this post and you can check it out below.

As briefly mentioned, Tera Melos are also touring with The Dillinger Escape Plan and Vattnet Viskar this year, which is a pretty great triple bill. The tour doesn't hit NYC, but it will be nearby for shows at Amityville, NY's Revolution Bar & Music on 5/9 (tickets) and Hartford, CT's Webster Theater on 5/10 (tickets).

All dates are listed, with the new video, below...

Shura Touch (Delorean Remix) (Stereogum Premiere)
Apr 16, 2014 9:54am | StereoGum

“Touch,” the debut single from Moscow via London singer Shura, is an expert take on that subtly funky, misty-lensed throwback pop Blood Orange does so well. The refrain — “I want to touch you, but I’m too late/ I want to touch you, but there’s history” — exceptionally evokes the frustrated longing that accompanies the prospect of reigniting an old romance, and the melody is indelible. It’s a great song, and today it gets a great remix. Spanish dance-rockers Delorean have given “Touch” a Balearic makeover without compromising its ghostly mystique or retro flavor. It’s not too late for this song to touch you, so listen to the remix below.

Listen: Mutes M.P.D.G
Apr 16, 2014 9:45am | The Line Of Best Fit

Having recently signed to One Note Forever Records, Mutes is gearing up for success with the release of “M.P.D.G”, his spellbinding debut single.

Glistening into life with a soaring swell, “M.P.D.G”‘s ethereal texture proves both delicate and captivating. Whilst the vocals take a haunting back-seat, infectiously upbeat guitar riffs drive through a swirling mist of echoes and reverb. Twinkling percussion adds to the song’s surreal nature, crafting a sound as rich and optimistic as a sunrise at dawn.

Like few one-man-bands of the lo-fi ilk, Mutes makes music that’ll sail through your system until you’re powerless to resist.

Mutes’ self-titled EP is set for physical and digital release on 7 May via One Note Forever Records (pre-order here). “M.P.D.G” is available as a free download now.

Live dates: 

18 April – The Cellar, Oxford (w/ flies+flies)
19 Apr Left For Dead Records/Polar Bear Records, Birmingham (Record Store Day in-store)
29 Apr – The Old Blue Last, London (w/ Bad Grammar)

Hundred Waters Xtalk
Apr 16, 2014 9:43am | StereoGum

Over the last few months, the experimental Gainesville indie-pop impressionists Hundred Waters have shared the beautiful new songs “Down From The Rafters” and “Cavity,” and they’ve announced plans for a new album. Today, those plans become a little more concrete. The group’s sophomore LP is called The Moon Rang Like A Bell, and we’ve got the tracklist below. Also below, check out the diffuse, gasping sorta-kinda dance song “Xtalk,” the third LP track that the group has shared.


Trans Am Ill Never (Alternate Version) (Stereogum Premiere)
Apr 16, 2014 9:42am | StereoGum

Trans Am come from the days of OG post-rock. Post-rock in the early ’90s wasn’t about playing “epic” (read: predictable) instrumental rock. No, it was about exploring vastly different sounds and improvisations within a single song — also it was usually released on Thrill Jockey, and John McEntire probably showed up at some point to do something. Those days are long gone, but Trans Am have kept playing and going wherever their musical inspirations take them, which has led to some extremely rhythmic and propulsive music. Still, their upcoming album Volume X might be the most pop-oriented thing the band has done. Album track “I’ll Never” is a fragile slow burner, filled with the band’s vocoder-inflected vocals and romantic synths, but that’s not the version we have today. This alternate take shows just how much the band can change their sound, speeding it up to the pace of Jesus And Mary Chain-style bubblegum-noise filled with pounding drums, heavy distortion, and a sweeter vocal take. Listen below and check them out on tour.

Bonnaroo expands 2014 lineup, reveals comedy stage
Apr 16, 2014 9:27am | Cosequence Of Sound

Bonnaroo doesn’t just feature an impressive music lineup. In years past, festival-goers have escaped Manchester, TN’s scolding heat, and got to enjoy a few chuckles in the process, by hitting the festival’s Comedy Theatre. 2014 should be no different, as the lineup will feature funny people like Craig Robinson, SNL cast member Taran Killam, Hannibal Buress, Neal Brennan, TJ Miller, and Rory Scovel.

The comedy lineup also promises Bridget Everett and the Tender Moments, Sasheer Zamata, Seth Herzog, Emily Heller, and Brad Williams.

These new additions join a music lineup that already boasts Kanye West, Jack White, and Elton John, along with Vampire Weekend, Frank Ocean, Arctic Monkeys, Phoenix, Lionel Richie, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Damon Albarn, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Skrillex, among many others
