Song : Still Parade : Beach
Sep 16, 2014 11:47am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Still Parade is a new project that we just got hip to. The German dream folk project is the brainchild of one Niklas Kramer. He just released the final piece, “Beach”, to his new four-song Fields EP. The song can only be described as a musical journey that reaches near, far, and wide over its five plus minutes of gentle rolling melodies. It is a lush compliment to the other three tracks that have been released over the past year, including the title track, which might very well be our favorite of the bunch. You can buy the EP on limited edition vinyl courtesy of Day By Day Records/Serve & Volley Records here. Listen below.

Mark Lanegan releasing new LP, touring (dates, song stream)
Sep 16, 2014 11:45am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Alt rock vet Mark Lanegan will release his new album, Phantom Radio, on October 21 via Flooded Soil/Vagrant. The first single from the record is "Floor Of The Ocean" which might supprise Screaming Trees fans who haven't checked with Mark in a while. It's heavy on synths and drum machines, with a little Peter Hook style bass in there as well. You can stream that below.

Mark will be touring this fall, and he'll play NYC at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall on November 8. Tickets go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon.

You can also hear Mark on the new Stooges rerecordings that guitarist James Williamson is putting together. All tour dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...

Yacht Club Cold Wind From Fools Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 16, 2014 11:42am | StereoGum

Yacht Club is a band featuring Ben Cook of Fucked Up who play music that sounds almost nothing like Fucked Up. It sounds like what you’d expect from a band called Yacht Club, actually, and their recent song “Cold Wind From Fools” is a breezy serving of smooth rock. It now has an equally pleasant video that features dogs, sunsets, and shots of the beach. It’s all just slightly faded and warped, however. Appropriately the band’s Burnt Cream EP — from which this song is culled — is available on cassette and VHS tape. Watch the video below.

Q&A: Savannah Burke, Former Program Director, Revolution 91.7 (WWHR)
Sep 16, 2014 11:40am | CMJ

In the coming weeks, well be chatting with some of the fantastic people participating in College Radio Day programing for CMJ Music Marathon to introduce you to the faces behind college radio and give you a preview of what’s in store this year.

This week we spoke with Savannah Burke—former program director, Local Shots host and DJ at Revolution 91.7 (WWHR) in Bowling Green, Kentucky—about how she got involved in college radio and Revolution 91.7s involvement with local charities. Burke will be participating in the “In The Spotlight” panel as part of College Day at CMJ Music Marathon. This panel will focus on the ways that stations get their names out there and connect with their communities.


Tell me about WWHR and how you got involved with the station.
Revolution 91.7 (WWHR) is essentially the coolest collection of misfits you’ll meet on Western Kentucky University’s campus. We operate live, 24/7 during the school year, making us home to over 50 student DJs. Revolution does not run as a freeform station, rather our program director and music director have a huge hand in shaping the sound of our station, creating a format that promises to deliver the latest and best college/progressive artists to the Bowling Green community. I actually got involved on my first day as a student at WKU. I think I knew a total of two people on campus when I arrived, but when I heard the music playing from the...

Clear Channel changes name to iHeartMedia
Sep 16, 2014 11:39am | Brooklyn Vegan

It's been almost nine years since Clear Channel spun off Live Nation (who went on to buy Ticketmaster). Now:

Clear Channel on Tuesday refashioned itself as iHeartMedia, accentuating how the lines between online and AM/FM radio are blurring at the country's biggest company on the broadcast dial.

"It's not a company with a bunch of old radio stations and outdoor [billboards] anymore," Chief Executive Bob Pittman said in an interview. "We've transformed, so let's now take a name that matters."

iHeartRadio is Clear Channel's digital arm, a Pandora-like online service that also hosts the digital streams of the company's 840 traditional radio stations like KIIS FM in Los Angeles. Effective Tuesday, CC Media Holdings Inc. became iHeartMedia Inc. The company's over-the-counter stock ticker symbol will also change, effective Wednesday.

Streaming is the industry's most promising segment of growth, but tech-centered outfits like Pandora -- the Web's biggest radio operator -- and on-demand subscription services like Apple's Beats Music and Spotify tend to attract the most attention as they race to dominate the burgeoning sector. By recasting itself as iHeartMedia, Clear Channel not only recognizes the company itself has changed but also believes it will get due credit in the tech community for its gargantuan scope, Pittman said.

My Favourite Record: Recondite
Sep 16, 2014 11:32am | Fact Magazine

My Favourite Record is a weekly feature where we ask musicians we rate from across the spectrum to pick their most cherished a development of our occasional On Record feature, and a chance to take a peek at the albums that maketh the artist. Today’s entry:


METALLICA
Master of Puppets
(Elektra/Asylum, 1986)

Picked by: techno producer Recondite.


There are several albums I could talk about here, but I chose this as it’s a good fit to my mood today.

This album was a steady companion throughout my childhood. Not just because I really loved it, also because my cousin who had his room next door was blasting it through his speakers a lot too.

That unique combination of harmony, rhythm, melody and groove with a harsh, fast and energetic drive is rarely as good as it is on Master of Puppets. Of course The Black Album would be an example for that as well, but I think it’s pushing it too hard in terms of maybe being overly melodic, a bit cheesy and obvious. Kill ‘em all would be the counterpart, as it has a more rough and less harmonic approach.

So in my opinion Master of Puppets is standing in between these two LPs and has the best of the three combined into one album. For my personal taste – it is the concentration of the best ...


Stream Lower Plenty Life/Thrills (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 16, 2014 11:31am | StereoGum

Over the last year, coverage of the music scene in Melbourne, Australia has been increasing, which is fine because the music scene in Melbourne, Australia is freaking great. Bands like Total Control and Deaf Wish have earned some deserved attention, and the same should be true of Lower Plenty, who share a few members with those bands. Lower Plenty (which is also the name of an area of Melbourne) don’t sound much like Total Control or Deaf Wish, however; their new album, Life/Thrills, fits in perfectly on the band’s label home, Mexican Summer. With a ramshackle charm and gentle warmth, Lower Plenty glide through a consistently great set of folk-rock tunes, from the stormy “Concrete Floor” (which sounds like what might happen if the Velvets recorded White Light/White Heat but only had the equipment from Velvet Underground) to the lovely, pristine “Jealous.” Check out the entire record below.

Glass Animals, Rome Fortune @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg: September 15, 2014
Sep 16, 2014 11:20am | CMJ


Its not often that bands can successfully bend multiple genres of music and translate it to a live audience. Mixing R&B and hints of dreamy electronics, Glass Animals did just that to a sold out audience at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg last night. The boys from Oxford took the stage to roaring cheers and wasted no time giving the crowd exactly what they expected.

Their energy on stage was complimented by ceiling-high Areca Palms and lights cascading from every direction. Given the amount of success Glass Animals have seen in just a short amount of time, seeing them live is no easy task. Everyone in the house was dancing, and when crowd favorites such as Gooey and Pools were played, there was a sense that Glass Animals are a breed all their own. With support from the foggy-headed rhymes of Atlantas Rome Fortune, the night was a perfect way to ease into the fall concert calendar in Brooklyn.
