Worriers
May 22, 2015 12:04pm | StereoGum
Gender is stupid. We need to throw the whole construct in the trash. Of course, that's not going to happen for a very, very long time (if ever) so, until then, we'll get songs rebelling against the shackles of a societally-imposed identity. Worriers got their start a few years ago with the same kind … More »



Song : China :
May 22, 2015 11:58am | My Old Kentucky Blog

London-based Swede China Yggström has shared a new simmering song “Now You Know”. You might recall us discussing her previously with “Hide” and the collaboration “Spirit Away” from Korallreven’s LP of last year. The track, produced by Hanna Brandén aka Name The Pet, shines with alluring, blanketed synths. Listen below.

Liner Notes is a close up look at a great new album you may have missed. This week, Afiara Quartet teams up with DJ Skratch Bastid for a multi-part hip-hop/classical collaboration that plays more like a conversation than a fixed composition.

Hear Another Preview Of Eminem
May 22, 2015 11:46am | StereoGum
Eminem seems to have settled comfortably into the habit of debuting new music via commercial. He used a Beats by Dre commercial to announce his return in 2013, and he recently debuted a new song in a trailer for the Jake Gyllenhaal-starring boxing movie Southpaw. Today, he's returned to the Beats format, sharing … More »

Robert Pollard
May 22, 2015 11:38am | CMJ

These days Ty Segall might be the token example of someone who puts out more records than anyone can keep track of, but he has a long way to go before his discography will be anywhere near that of Robert Pollard. But Segall does beat Pollard in one arena—chart topping college radio success. While Pollard’s most well known project, Guided By Voices, has hit No. 1, his extensive solo career has not dealt him a great hand in the form of college radio success.

For such a prolific musician with such high levels of acclaim, it may come as a surprise that his solo peak on the CMJ charts is No. 11. Yep, he has not even cracked the top 10. From A Compound Eye, his first release after Guided By Voices initially called it quits in 2004, hit No. 11 on February 13, 2006.

Worriers share new song produced by Laura Jane Grace (who plays NYC on Memorial Day)
May 22, 2015 11:36am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

We mentioned earlier this year that Brooklyn's Worriers were working on a new album that Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace was producing, and now the first fruits of their collaborations have been released. The new single's called "They / Them / Theirs," and it's a ripping melodic punk song about the frustrations of the gender binary. Check it out below (via Spin).

The new album is called Imaginary Life, and comes out August 7 via Don Giovanni. It follows 2013's Cruel Optimist.

We mentioned that Worriers have a hometown show coming up on May 28 at Silent Barn with Caves, Sundials and Alice, and that it would be the kickoff to their US tour with Caves. That tour was since announced in full (it also includes a New Brunswick show), and all dates are listed below.

Worriers also have a Starland Ballroom show on June 26 with Lifetime, The Menzingers and Laura Stevenson (tickets).

Meanwhile, Laura Jane Grace will be in NYC for a solo show at City Winery on Monday (5/25) (Memorial Day). That's sold out but you can join the wait list in case tickets become available. Against Me! are also touring and playing a free afternoon show in NYC on June 13 at McCarren Park (part of Northside Festival). Free tickets are still available.
