Amanda X Amnesia
Jul 28, 2014 12:00pm | CMJ

Philadelphias indie scene has been bubbling for a while now. Though aside from Bleeding Rainbows bigger moments, this Philly trio feels apart from it. Amanda X seem to have ignored most mandatory modern rock accoutrements, sounding fresh and forward for it, though obviously their sound is grounded in the Clinton era. Its almost jarring to hear something so uncluttered, no extra GarageBand-aided over-fuzzing, no real or imagined accidental ambient noise, no ubiquitous synthesizer dropping in to appease some notion of zeitgeist obligation. No, just three women getting together to pound out good songs.

This debut comes out of the sure hands of Philly-based Siltbreeze Records, a label that got its start making the world a weirder place by offering the most bent angles on the indie rock of that alt-era. They slunk back under the dust somewhere for a bit, but have jumped back into the action in the last few years and have found another diamond in the rough back lots of the City of Brotherly Love.

Admittedly the easy, and quite correct, Sleater-Kinney comparison comes up from the first few seconds of Amnesia‘s opener, Guatemala, which doesnt make it any less drowsily droll as a perfect run-up for whats to come. Like the way Dream House walks out the front door from that wake-up tune, as the chorus bellows out like your eyes getting used to the sun: My heart will break-a-a-ak! And that demi-grunge swell-and-release pat...



A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Diamond Youth, Prawn and Field Mouse add dates to Topshelf Records tour, including NYC

AGBPOL at Brooklyn Night Bazaar in April (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Topshelf Records has put out a handful of excellent releases over the past few years, and this year four of its bands will head out on Topshelf's first-ever label tour. The tour showcases how diverse the label is at the moment, with A Great Big Pile of Leaves who make chilled-out mathy indie pop not unlike Minus the Bear, Diamond Youth who have kind of a QOTSA-meets-Weezer thing going on, Prawn who do justice to Kinsella-style emo, and Field Mouse who mix shoegaze and '90s-style alt-pop. The tour was announced earlier this month, but more dates have since been added including a NYC show happening October 2 at The Studio at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

AGBPOL just played NYC when their tour with Braid hit MHOW (7/26) over the weekend. Prawn play here this weekend when their tour with Foxing and The Hotelier hits The Studio at Webster Hall on Saturday (8/2) (tickets).

All dates are listed, with streams of all four bands, below...

Turn To Crime Cant Love Video
Jul 28, 2014 11:54am | StereoGum

Ex-Awesome Color frontman Derek Stanton’s new project Turn To Crime released their crunchy post-punk debut earlier this month. The band was formed after Stanton moved back to Detroit, and it makes sense that the city that inspired him would feature prominently in the video for “Can’t Love,” which mostly consists of quick cuts of snowy footage shot during what the band called “the coldest winter anyone can remember.” That footage is intercut with beautiful anonymous love letters submitted by people in the Detroit area, helping to establish a mood that goes well with the music. Watch below.

Video : Tensnake & Jacques Lu Cont : Feel Of Love (ft. Jamie Lidell)
Jul 28, 2014 11:48am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Tensnake has his latest Glow out now for your consumption. “Feel for Love” is featured on the album and is a collaboration with Jacques Lu Cont and vocalist Jamie Lidell. In the video for the song, directed by Remy Cayuela, you get a humorous visual of what exactly is going on within a male’s lower region while in the midst of a sexual interlude. It is a pretty entertaining watch and might be slightly NSFW depending on how liberal your work environment is. Check it out below.

Watch: March of the Juggalos, a new documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman
Jul 28, 2014 11:31am | Cosequence Of Sound

This past weekend, thousands of gang members descended on Thornville, Ohio for the 15th annual Gathering of the Juggalos. The lineup included all-star heavyweights like Cannibal Corpse, Kottonmouth Kings, and Yelawolf, plus comedian Gilbert Gottfried and professional wrestler/Wife Swap participant Mick Foley. Needless to say, such a momentous occasion should forever be preserved in the bowels of American history, and thus comes the March of the Juggalos documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman.

If you haven’t figured it out already, this hilarious spoof takes scenes from a VICE documentary and pairs it with Freeman’s narration from March of the Penguins.



Video Premiere: Im An Island Passion Phruit
Jul 28, 2014 11:30am | CMJ

I’m An Island


I’m An Island is the project of Nashville-by-way-of-New Orleans musician J. Gardner, who has only released one EP so far: Crown Jewel, a brief collection of lackadaisical psych-pop that feels like slowly sinking into a natural hot springs somewhere in the northwestern U.S. Today we’re premiering the video for the dense, textured EP single, Passion Phruit.

The clip plays with light and texture too, utilizing nomadic roadtrip imagery to create an unstable sense of place. Visuals of lanterns illuminating the night sky overlap with underwater landscapes, sunset drives, sandy shores and breezy hair. It’ll make you want to plan that trip you’ve been meaning to take. Watch the video below.

The post Video Premiere: I’m An Island – “Passion Phruit” appeared first on CMJ.


The Horrors postpone tour dates: MHOW show canceled; Stage 48 show now happening earlier (updated dates)

The Horrors @ Austin Psych Fest 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)

Dear friends, family, supporters, deadly sworn enemies and others

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to reshuffle our US and European tours at the end of this year. We can only apologise to anyone who already has tickets to the dates affected - we hate cancelling shows but this situation was unavoidable. We'll be back on the road next year and make sure we return to all the places we missed on this run.

The Horrors x

The reshuffling of The Horrors' tours means postponing much of their fall North American tour with Moon Duo. West Coast dates are still happening, but the rest of the country will have to wait until later. Except NYC, that is: The Horrors' show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 5 has been canceled but the Stage 48 show, originally scheduled for November 4, will now happen on October 21. Tickets are still available, all previously purchased tickets will be honored, and refunds are available at point of purchase.

Updated Horrors tour dates are listed below...

Childish Gambino Thinks Hes Better Than Drake, Kendrick
Jul 28, 2014 11:21am | StereoGum

Kendrick Lamar dropped a nuclear bomb on what had become a peaceful rap climate last summer with his instantly legendary verse on Big Sean’s “Control.” Rappers brag all the time, but Kendrick caused a stir because he called out competing MCs by name, openly stating that he was aiming to destroy them all. It was a throwback move that stoked a long-dormant spirit of competition in hip-hop. Thing is, Kendrick’s claims of supremacy carried so much power because he really is the best rapper alive right now, something he demonstrated within the same flurry of syllables in which he delivered his boast. Childish Gambino, on the other hand, has no such grounds, but it didn’t stop him from making similar pronouncement during a freestyle on stage in Sydney. “I’m the best rapper, definitely top 5,” the actor-musician born Donald Glover rapped. “I cut their head off, that’s every rapper living/ That’s Kendrick, that’s Drake, that’s ScHoolboy, that’s everyone. I dont give a fuck, I’ll fucking kill you niggas.” Dozens of rappers offered up responses to “Control” last year, most of them making untenable claims with significantly less pizzazz. What makes this so ridiculous is that Gambino essentially copied Kendrick’s phraseology from the “Control” verse, delivering a middle-school version of the same concept. It’s not the first time Gambino has borrowed from ...


Danny Brown Says His Record With The Avalanches Will Change The World
Jul 28, 2014 11:13am | StereoGum

Australian DJ crew the Avalanches released their landmark debut album Since I Left You in 2000, and since then, there have been a lot of rumors about a follow-up album but no actual follow-up album. There have been a few songs here and there, and a few years ago, the news circulated that they’d done some recording with Ariel Pink, though of course we never ended up hearing any music that came out of that. And now Detroit rap firebreather Danny Brown says that he’s done some work with the group, and that the work he’s done is great. Brown spoke to the Australian radio network Triple J during Australia’s Spendour In The Grass festival, and here’s what he said about it:

The Wytches played two NYC shows (pics from Glasslands w/ HEAT and Slavve)
Jul 28, 2014 11:05am | Brooklyn Vegan

The Wytches @ Glasslands 7/25/2014

After touring the West Coast with Cloud Nothings, UK trio The Wytches played their first NYC shows last week, playing Mercury Lounge on Thursday (7/25) and Glasslands on Friday with Montreal's HEAT and local duo Slavve. Photos from the Glasslands show are in this post. I swung by Mercury Lounge after Teenage Fanclub and was glad I did -- their mix of punk, stoner riffs and garage makes for a good live show. Those influences also add up, basically, to early Sub Pop grunge but The Wytches play with the kind of enthusiasm that's hard to fake. Their forthcoming record, Annabel Dream Reader (out 8/26 on Partisan), does a pretty good job at capturing that energy but do see them live if you get the chance.

I also caught HEAT on Saturday (7/26) at their free matinee show at Rough Trade. Crowd was sparse for their 2 PM set but they sounded good, sporting a variety of post Velvet Underground influences and a detached cool attitude (not a million miles from The Strokes). Original? No, but they do it well. Keep an eye out -- they'll be back for CMJ if not before. Pics from their Glasslands set, plus ones of Slavve and more of The Wytches, below...
