Pissed Jeans were last in NYC earlier this month for two shows at Baby's All Right (I caught the early show which was one of the wilder nights I've had at Baby's), and they're set to return this summer. Like they've done before, they'll open for their Sub Pop labelmates Mudhoney at The Bell House on July 12, which is one of two NYC shows on Mudhoney's tour.
Also on that Bell House show is NJ's The Black Clouds (not to be confused with DC's Black Clouds). Tickets are still available. Those bands are replacing Obits who dropped off because they broke up. (Two Obits members just formed a new band though.)
Mudhoney's other NYC show is July 6 at Bowery Ballroom with Pampers. Tickets for that one are still available.
List of Pissed Jeans tour dates, and a video, below...

Track Premiere: The Hussy
May 20, 2015 10:22am | CMJ
The dictionary definition of cheap town musical invention, The Hussy took their desire to not have to work more than 15 hours a week, cheap rent and even cheaper instrument accumulation to new two-man band heights with their 2011 debut LP, Cement Tomb Mind Control. Another LP and a split EP with Digital Leather last year that saw the band tweak their noise a bit, and they’re back with Galore, out June 30 on Southpaw Records.
Yes they’re straight outta Madison, Wisconsin where, yes, waitresses at German restaurants often wear traditional Bavarian dresses and serve you a Volkswagon trunk’s worth of cheese, but is also the site of a brainy college or three and the useful endless winters that aid in sitting around coming up with cool shit to do indoors—like make more lacerating crash-rock. While on Galore they employ more wacky pedals, a violin and even a bass here or there, they remain a most effective daffy garage duo.
Throughout 2013-14, they became that band that greased the floorboards for the more established lo-fi funsters they were opening for (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, King Khan & BBQ, White Fence, Black Lips), and in between backed up Nobunny on shows around the globe, while still finding time to get out of town on numerous weekends to shake up dives around the Midwest. And they’re about to do it again.
So give a listen to the premiere...

Turns out last month's Night Beds' single "Tide Teeth" was the precursor to a new full-length. That new song was a pretty big change in sound from his 2013 debut, Country Sleep, trading in woodsy folk for slippery late-night-drive R&B, and the new album seems like it will be more of the same: Winston … More »
Watch the heartbreaking trailer for new Amy Winehouse documentary
May 20, 2015 10:10am | Cosequence Of Sound
A new trailer for the forthcoming Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy, has surfaced ahead of its July 3rd theatrical release. The two-minute clip provides a haunting look into the film, which intimately chronicles the rise and fall of the Back to Black singer through previously unseen footage, interviews, and never-before-heard music. Watch the trailer below.
Amy comes from the same team behind the acclaimed 2010 documentary Senna. It was directed by Asif Kapadia, produced by James Gay-Rees, and features Paul Bell as archive producer. Prior to its wide release this summer, the film debuted earlier this month at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. However, it has been met negatively by the Winehouse family, who say the film “contains basic untruths … The narrative is formed by the testimony of a narrow sample of Amy

Last year, Savannah four-piece Triathalon put out their sunny, charming full-length debut Lo-Tide. Since then, they've been on tour, and are currently putting the finishing touches on their followup, but they're looking back for now with a new video for Lo-Tide highlight "Usher Surfing." The video is a fuzzy, shimmering mirage -- pools of … More »
Governors Ball reveal 2015 schedule

NYC music festival Governors Ball returns June 5-7, and today the schedule was revealed.
There's a few tough conflicts in there. On Friday, fans of both Drake and My Morning Jacket have a decision to make, as do fans of both The Decemberists and Florence + the Machine. And earlier that day, Twin Shadow is up against Charli XCX.
On Saturday, two big electronic producers go against each other, Flume and SBTRKT, and you'll have to decide between Bjork and Conor Oberst. Anyone into both Sharon Van Etten and Kiesza also has some deciding to do.
And on Sunday, The Black Keys are up against Lana Del Rey, and Hot Chip are up against Flying Lotus. Weird Al plays at the same time as The War On Drugs. We hope he writes and performs a Mark Kozelek parody for the occasion.
Check out the full schedule HERE.

Jóse Padilla has managed to convert the Ibiza lifestyle into music like few others.
Born in Barcelona, Padilla is the originator of chill, the daddy of Balearic. He moved to the island in the mid-70s and launched his residency at Cafe del Mar in 1991, providing an alternative to that period’s acid house and hyperspace techno with a calmer, more relaxed sound that exists permanently at sunset.
For this profile, FACT TV traveled to Ibiza to meet with Padilla and talk about his legacy, the future of Cafe Del Mar and his latest album So Many Colours, which sees him collaborate with younger artists like with Mark Barrott, Telephones, Wolf Müller and Tornado Wallace. The album will be released through International Feel in June.

Alex Winston's best single was "Sister Wife" off a 2011 EP of the same name. It's what drew me into the New York-via-Detroit singer's world, a weirdly catchy pop song about incest that was accompanied by this equally bizarre video. Winston manipulates her voice from bratty bubblegum to dramatic diva in one fell … More »

Earlier this year, when the Mountain Goats were getting ready to release their great wrestling-themed album Beat The Champ, I took frontman John Darnielle to his first pro wrestling show in 35 years. He didn't want me to put any details in the story, but he was getting ready to get his hair cut … More »
