Video Premiere: Nox Boys Military School

Nox Boys – Photo by Andy Johanson
Like modern day Eddie Haskells, this Blawnox, PA, band are all clean shaven and still fairly sober, three lads just got out of the zitface phase a few weeks ago, plus one of their uncles who brings sneaky slide guitar and a beast of a record collection to the band’s still germinating garage pound. So they’ll no doubt charm your mum, but their slick garage rock means bratty business and might piss off even the other garage bands on a bill with them. That’s ’cause they mostly reject the currently standard lo-fi, reverb-heavy trash rock angle and up the volume and vocals, while keeping the energy and sneer just feral enough to gain your untrustworty greaser trust.
On Military School, the Nox Boys dive right into some stomping, slide guitar blues, but play it with the “why not” assuredness of a bunch of in-development delinquents. Today, we’re premiering this well-matched B&W vid-clip for the tune, shot by Andy Johanson in a dank small hall somewhere in recession era Pennsylvania.
Says drummer Sam Berman, “Shooting the music video was like recording the debut album. We had very little time and very little experience…It took some time to be able to play to a track of Military School that we recorded almost a year earlier—hard to believe we played it much slower than we do live now.”

California X Hadley, MA
Dec 17, 2014 10:26am | StereoGum
Massachusetts fuzz-punks California X are a few weeks away from releasing their sophomore LP Nights In The Dark. “Hadley, MA,” the third of the songs they’ve shared from the album, is a lot softer and slower and more bittersweet than previous singles “Nights In The Dark” and “Red Planet.” It’s a bit of a scraped-out dirge, honestly, though it still ascends to the sunbaked classic-rock heights this band regularly strives for. The song-ending guitar solo, in particular, shows that they’re in no hurry to shake the Dinosaur Jr. comparisons that habitually follow them around. Listen to the song below.
Video Session : Bob Log III at Sun King Brewery

Madonnas Entire New Album Reportedly Leaks Before It Was Even Announced
Dec 17, 2014 10:11am | StereoGum
Madonna’s reportedly been working on a new album for a while now, but she hasn’t even announced the album yet. It was probably going to come out next year. But now, who knows. 13 brand-new Madonna songs — possibly the entire finished new album — leaked to the internet this morning, as Oh No They Didn’t points out. Madonna recorded the tracks with Diplo, Avicii, Natalia Kills, and Ryan Tedder. Rumor has it that the album is called either Unapologetic Bitch (awesome title) or Iconic (less so). (That’s presumably a fan-created cover up there.) The album, or whatever it is, has one song called “Unapologetic Bitch” and another called “Bitch I’m Madonna.” It’ll be interesting to see how Madonna handles this — whether she retools the album or bumps up the release or ignores it entirely. But it’s out there now. Ask Sony Pictures about that: There’s nothing you can do about that now.

The lineup will be announced in early 2015. A limited amount of presale tickets will be available tomorrow starting at noon CST. Here are some words from Vernon and Dessner on putting together the festival:

Dec 17, 2014 10:06am | Brooklyn Vegan
Tiny Mix Tapes posted their Favorite 50 Music Releases of 2014, and as TMT lists usually are, it's a pretty eccentric one with a lot of stuff that wasn't making everyone's list this year. Sure you've got Grouper, Andy Stott, Sun Kil Moon, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, Arca, Pharmakon, Perfume Genius, Ariel Pink, Swans and FKA twigs, but you've also got Ninos Du Brasil, Gem Jones, James Ferraro, Call Super, C L E A N E R S, Kevin Drumm & Jason Lescalleet and more.
Read their entertaining intro and commentary on the albums here, and browse their full list below...

Petite Noir Till We Ghosts (Feat. Yasiin Bey)
Dec 17, 2014 10:02am | StereoGum
Petite Noir’s King Of Anxiety EP already gave us one splendid single in “Chess.” Now here’s another excellent track from Cape Town “noirwave” king Yannick Ilunga with an assist from Yasiin Bey, the artist formerly known as Mos Def. “Till We Ghosts” actually premiered two years ago in a different form, but this new version with Bey is as fresh as can be. It’s one of those songs that could have been utterly corny, with Bey rapping over what amounts to driving rock music with an ethereal touch. Instead, this particular rap/rock hybrid turns out to be as electrifying as Yeezus, but with the elegant poise of peak TV On The Radio. Run The Jewels’ collaboration with Until The Ribbon Breaks comes to mind as well, though this trades out sharp-edged aggression for a dreamier kind of forward motion. Listen below.

Protomartyr tell us about 10 movies they saw on tour this year, part of new flexi series w/ Cloud Nothings, Wye Oak & more
Dec 17, 2014 9:45am | Brooklyn Vegan
Protomartyr's second album, Under Color of Official Right, is one of the year's most acclaimed albums, matching witty if bleak observations to snarling postpunk backing. The band spent most of the year on the road, out on tours with Spray Paint, Whatever Brains and Parquet Courts, making space for both SXSW, CMJ and one of DbA's final shows, too. Which leads to Protomartyr's Top 10 of 2014 list they sent us, which could have only been sent by them. Here's the setup:
As is often the case with touring, all you have is time and it must be killed. Going to see a movie, any movie, is our default band activity. We go to the theater and whatever is showing next is what we see. We'd like to think this is the reason why we saw so much shit, but honestly, seeing something awful became an addiction. Other than that, the only criteria was that the theater had to sell booze. That became an addiction as well.You won't find Boyhood or Birdman or Grand Budapest Hotel on this list, but it's a funny read and works as a travelogue as well. Protomartyr's "Ten Movies We Saw This Year" are listed with commentary below.
In other news, Protomartyr are part of a Joyful Noise Recordings' new subscription record club, the 2015 Flexidisc Series where "some of our favorite artists to release never-before-heard recordings on a fleeting analog format." Other artists contributing to the...
Future Brown Vernáculo (Feat. Maluca) Video
Dec 17, 2014 9:44am | StereoGum
Future Brown have followed up their magnificent “Talkin Bandz” with “Vernáculo,” another track from their recently announced debut album. The song is another genre-bending take from the production enclave and features NYC-based singer Maluca. It’s accompanied by a video that premiered at Art Basel earlier this month that serves as an indictment of the beauty industry. “Appropriating the advertising language of global beauty brands like LOreal and Revlon, ’Vernaculo’ is an exercise in capitalist surrealism,” the Perez Art Museum Miami explains. You can watch the video over on their website.
Laura Jane Grace Reviews 2014: The Against Me! Leader On Transitioning In Public, Getting To Know Her Fans, And Seeing A Ghost
Dec 17, 2014 9:44am | StereoGum
Since coming out as transgender in 2012, Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace has been living in a kind of whirlwind, having not only spent the past two years navigating her new identity under the watchful gaze of the public, but also touring nonstop in support of one of the year’s best albums Transgender Dysphoria Blues, AND — if that weren’t enough — filming a web series, True Trans, that explores Grace’s own personal journey and helps illuminate the transgender experience. While all of this might be enough to leave most people feeling physically and emotionally exhausted, Grace seems to have happily taken it all in stride. I called her up to chat about the highs and lows of 2014, the making of True Trans, and what people can expect next from her band.
