Foo Fighters performed a secret show as The Holy Shits in an abandoned train tunnel
Sep 12, 2014 6:47pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Foo Fighters were at it again Thursday night, performing another secret show in the UK ahead of their gig at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games. Once again, the band appeared under the-holy-shit-that’s-awesome moniker, The Holy Shits. And while there was no Foo Fighters cover band to speak of, they did play in an abandoned train tunnel underneath London’s Waterloo Station.

In front of a crowd of 600 lucky fans, the Foos ripped through a 21-song set comprised mostly of their numerous greatest hits. There were a few exceptions, however: “Weenie Beenie”, off the band’s 1995 self-titled debut, was performed live for the first time since 2009. “For All The Cows” also made a rare live appearance.

Check out a few photos and videos, along with the full setlist, below.

Setlist:
White Limo
Arlandria
Generator
Rope
See You
New Way Home
The Pretender
Learn to Fly
My Hero
Cold Day in the Sun
All My Life
Skin and Bones
Monkey Wrench
Hey, Johnny Park!
For All the Cows
Breakout
Weenie Beenie
This Is a Call

Encore:
Times Like These
Best of You

Caribou Our Love (Daphni Remix)
Sep 12, 2014 6:05pm | StereoGum

In addition to Caribou, Dan Snaith sometimes releases things under his Daphni moniker, which usually trend in a more club-oriented direction. This time he’s remixed one of his own songs, “Our Love,” from the upcoming Caribou album of the same name. He punches up the track a little bit without changing its essence, taking away some of the emotional hit but leaving a smoother vibe in its place. Listen below.

Hear Four New Big Sean Songs Feat. Production By Kanye West, DJ Mustard, Mike WiLL Made It
Sep 12, 2014 5:39pm | StereoGum

Big Sean put up four new tracks on his Soundcloud earlier today and they share a first-rate laundry list of producers: Kanye West, DJ Mustard, Mike WiLL Made It, Nate Fox, Da Internz, Key Wane, L&F, and DJ Dahi. The four songs are the first collection of new music we’ve heard from Big Sean since last year’s Hall Of Fame. The Detriot rapper just signed to Roc Nation’s management side, though he’ll still retain his G.O.O.D Music label deal. Listen to the songs below.

Watch Nicki Minaj Join Beyoncé On Flawless Live In Paris
Sep 12, 2014 5:16pm | StereoGum

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s On The Run tour is currently making its way across Europe. On Friday night at their first of two shows in Paris, Nicki Minaj joined Bey on stage to perform their “Flawless***” remix live for the first time dressed in coordinating Versace outfits. On social media, Minaj quoted a line from Pink Friday bonus track “Girls Fall Like Dominoes” that predicted the pairing: “I’m out in Paris motherfucker with Beyoncé.” The Paris shows are being filmed for HBO’s On The Run concert special, so we should expect to see full video when that premieres on 9/20. Watch some fan-shot clips from the show below.

Panda Bear releases Grim Reaper mixtape listen
Sep 12, 2014 4:54pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Today, Animal Collectives Noah Lennox, aka Panda Bear, has launched a new personal website, pbvsgr.com. The acronym found in the URL seems to confirm the long-rumored title of Lennoxs latest solo album, Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper.

To coincide with the sites launch, Lennox has shared a new mixtape. The 40-minute mix primarily features mostly other acts songs, including Containers “Glaze”, Silk Flowers “Small Fortune”, and a Laidback Luke remix of a Moodyman song. However, as several users on Reddit have pointed out, Lennox also peppered in snippets of his own new music. Part of a song tentatively titled “Fill Those Spaces” or “Nadir” can be found at 15:20, while another track titled either “Can’t Come Back” or “Tropic of Cancer” appears at the 28:05 mark.

Listen to the full mix here.

Serving as the follow-up to 2011s Tomboy, Grim Reaper has been described as “break-centric” and influenced by hip-hop producer 9th wonder, featuring tracks “constructed out of samples of self-made sounds” and is “meant as a celebration of the fact that new growth sometimes requires death.” Lennox reportedly teamed with friend and longtime collaborator Sonic Boom on the LP.

Since announcing work on the album back in February, Lennox has continually...


Sturgill Simpson @ The Troubadour: September 11, 2014
Sep 12, 2014 4:45pm | CMJ


It was almost impossible to get a ticket to last night’s show at the Troubadour. Sturgill Simpson, the sweetest singing stoner, had sold out his show right away, and almost no one was selling tickets resale on the internet. Nothing on Craigslist. The cheapest ticket on Wednesday evening was $200 on Stubhub, with prices going upwards of $600 on other ticket resale sites. Simpson is obviously not an act to be missed in the coming years. Sturgill has an extremely traditional country sound, obviously drawing influence from acts like Johnny Cash, Dwight Yokum and the Stanely Brothers whose Medicine Springs he covered last night. But he isn’t simply a country carbon copy, he often throws in a psychedelic folk twist making songs like the current single Turtles All The Way Down have an almost Janis Joplin sound to them. He also has very unique lyrics that are far from classic country with a metaphysical and poetic beauty.

Although Sturgill’s songs are not really about doing drugs, he uses them often to make metaphors and paint pictures about his life. Despite not talking about the past few days in Los Angeles being a haze due to all the Stevia he had smuntil 2/3 of the way through his set it was obvious he had a little help chilling in the greenroom when he took the stage with a certain comfortable relaxed nature that was as forced lack of nerves than it was natural confidence.

Sturgill had a baby faced drummer, a coun...


Pity Sex Acid Reflex
Sep 12, 2014 4:38pm | StereoGum

True story: Just last week I was diagnosed with GERD, AKA acid reflux disease. Too much coffee, I’m guessing. Anyway, Michgan shoegazers Pity Sex have a song called “Acid Reflex” (not sure if that’s an error or a play on words) on their new split with Adventures, and it’s far sweeter than that nasty taste in the back of your throat when chemicals are bubbling up. The song continues this band’s consistent output of high-quality, densely layered guitar-pop theatrics. “I need drugs, I need God, I need comfort, I need fortune, I need something,” they sing. So the music is much more upbeat than the sentiment. Listen below.

Staff Picks: Track Of The Week
Sep 12, 2014 4:25pm | CMJ

PUJOL – Photo by Jamie Goodsell


We’ve got CMJ Music Marathon on the brain over here, but we’ve still got time to pick apart and pull together our favorite songs of the week just for you. Our staff’s five faves this week waggle between reworked R&B, spruced-up garage rock, shivering post-punk, blinking synth holograms and a jumping disco(ish?) jam.

Crater – Ain’t Alright

This song reminds me of so many other songs, but still manages to sounds fresh. Crater has taken so many sounds I like and brought them together into something I can’t stop listening to. You can beg me not to love this all you want, but it’s not gonna stop me. – Arielle Parnes-Katz


Empires – Honeyblood

It’s starting to get cooler outside, and while I’m really excited for fall, I will miss summer. Specifically, I’ll miss grilling out, camping and bonfires. So naturally, I had to pick a song that sounds like it would have been played at my college radio station’s (WXJM) back-to-school camping trip. The flurry of guitars, catchy rhythm and often fuzzy, brooding vocals make it the perfect candidate for a sea of denim shorts, beers kept cold in a mountain stream and dancing in the falling leaves. – Carrie Brothers


How To Dress Well – Repeat Pleasure (A.G. Cook Remix)

Check Out The Panda Bear Vs Grim Reaper Mixtape
Sep 12, 2014 4:23pm | StereoGum

We’ve long heard tell of a new Panda Bear album tentatively titled Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper. Now it’s looking like the actual title is Panda Bear Vs Grim Reaper — at least that’s what’s implied by PBVSGR, a new website where you can stream a new mixtape assembled by Noah Lennox himself. There is at least one snippet of what sounds like new Panda Bear music as well as a bunch of other stuff; one Shazam search turned up a Moodyman song remixed by Laidback Luke. It’s certainly in the headspace we’ve come to expect from Animal Collective’s own Paul McCartney. Click here and scroll down past the psychedelic imagery (which looks pretty similar to the projections from his live show) to hear all the hottest tracks.

White Lung played Sub-t in Chicago (pics), play Bushwick with Power Trip & Sick Feeling late TONIGHT
Sep 12, 2014 4:13pm | Brooklyn Vegan

White Lung @ Subterranean -- 9/11/2014

As we speak, White Lung are driving from Chicago to Brooklyn for TONIGHT'S MIDNIGHT SHOW at Palisades in Brooklyn. The BrooklynVegan-curated Friday night event also includes Power Trip and Don Devore's new band Sick Feeling on the bill. It's only $3 with RSVP, so hurry up and RSVP before it's too late.

Tonight's show should be a good one all around (if we do say so ourselves). White Lung continue to be of the most exciting punk bands around, this year's excellent Domino-released Deep Fantasy being no exception. Co-headliners Power Trip, on the other hand, bring us back to the early days of thrash and crossover and they do it well. The night should kick off with a bang too. Brooklyn's Sick Feeling (featuring members of Ink & Dagger, Trail of Dead and more) make grimy punk true to their name.

Meanwhile, White Lung were in Chicago to play a show at Sub-t with Mormon Crosses and Den last night (9/11). Pictures from that show are in this post.

Mormon Crosses also opened for White Lung at Glasslands on 9/3. If you missed that Brooklyn show, and don't have tickets to the sold out Basilica Sound Scape Fest on Saturday, Palisades is your last chance to catch White Lung in the NYC-area for now, though the band also has some dates elsewhere in North America coming up in December. All dates are listed w...

Tom Petty @ PNC Bank Arts Center - 9/11/14

After Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers brought their ongoing tour to Madison Square Garden on Wednesday (pics), they headed just outside of NYC to play Holmdel, NJ's PNC Bank Arts Center last night (9/11). The tour's in support of the band's new album Hypnotic Eye, but of course the sets are filled with all the old favorites too. Pictures of the PNC Bank Arts Center show, including Steve Winwood's opening set, are in this post along with a second batch of Petty's MSG set.

Pictures continue below...

Mountain Goats' John Darnielle wrote a novel, going on book tour, including free NYC reading w/ John Hodgman (dates)
Sep 12, 2014 4:00pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Mountain Goats main man John Darnielle has always been a storyteller, it's a wonder he's never written a book before now. Yet Wolf In White Van is his first novel. It's out on Tuesday (9/16) via Farrar, Straus and Giroux, and here's the synopsis:

Isolated by a disfiguring injury since the age of seventeen, Sean Phillips crafts imaginary worlds for strangers to play in. From his small apartment in southern California, he orchestrates fantastic adventures where possibilities, both dark and bright, open in the boundaries between the real and the imagined. As the creator of Trace Italian--a text-based, role-playing game played through the mail--Sean guides players from around the world through his intricately imagined terrain, which they navigate and explore, turn by turn, seeking sanctuary in a ravaged, savage future America.

Lance and Carrie are high school students from Florida, explorers of the Trace. But when they take their play into the real world, disaster strikes, and Sean is called to account for it. In the process, he is pulled back through time, tunneling toward the moment of his own self-inflicted departure from the world in which most people live.

You can listen to Darnielle read an excerpt from Wolf In White Van's audiobook below. You can also hear him read from it in person as Darnielle starts a book tour next week, starting in NYC on Monday (9/15) at Le Poisson Rouge with ...
