Scout Niblett - 'It's Up To Emma'
Grungy folk singer Scoutt Niblett released her new album, It's Up To Emma, this week via Drag City. It's her first album not produced by Steve Albini, but her ass-kicking PJ Harvey-esque songwriting is just as raw and powerful as ever. It's fitting for a record of this kind that the first single is opening track is simply titled "Gun." You can watch the video for that one, along with her no-bullshit cover of TLC's "No Scrubs" (which appears on the album!) and the tracklist below. That's the artwork above.
Scout will be supporting the new record with an international tour this year, which includes a run with Baltimore noise rockers/Drag City labelmates Dope Body. That run hits NYC at the mostly-metal Brooklyn DIY space Saint Vitus on September 13. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check Ticketfly for updates.
Dope Body will be in NYC even sooner to play 285 Kent on June 20. No advance tickets for that show at the moment either, and the rest of the lineup is still TBA. This past March, they released the Saturday EP via Drag City, and you can check out the video for its punishing opening track, "Leather Head," below.
All dates for both bands are listed, along with those videos, below...

[video] Washed Out announces new album Paracosm
May 23, 2013 12:33pm | Chart Attack
Two years after the release of Within and Without, Washed Out will release his new album Paracosm on August 13th, once again forcing himself to endure more stupid questions from music journalists about chillwave. Below is the album trailer, a sequence of kaleidoscopic nature shots scored by a bit of new music that sounds like how we were hoping the new Avalanches record would.

Barbarossa touring with, without & in Junip (who he covered)
May 23, 2013 12:26pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
UK resident James Mathé will soon be pulling double duty, both as a touring member of Jose Gonzalez's band Junip (who are starting a North American trek next week) and as an opener too, with his own project, Barbarossa. Having just signed to Memphis Industries, Mathé will release his second album as Barbarossa, Bloodlines, on August 5.
Where his first album, Chemical Campfires, was lovely acoustic folk, Mathé has reinvented Barbarossa for the new album which is much more electronic. "I loved the acoustic scene, but knew it was not all I was about, so I dug out all my old casiotone keyboards, drum machines and analogue synths and just started writing." If you like the more soulful, reflective side of Hot Chip, you should definitely check him out. You can watch the video for the album's first single, "The Load," below.
In celebration of the Junip tour -- which hits NYC on June 13 for a sold-out show at Highline Ballroom with Quadron -- Barbarossa has covered Junip's "Line of Fire" which definitely takes the song in a more low-key direction, but no less lovely. We've got the premiere of that and you can stream it below.
If you didn't get tickets to the Highline show but are still interested in catching Barbarossa, he'll return to NYC for shows at Mercury Lounge on June 20 with <...

Download Ryan Hemsworth Still Awake EP
May 23, 2013 12:05pm | StereoGum
The Halifax-bred producer Ryan Hemsworth has built his name on a form of twinkling, emotive cloud-rap music, though his take on the style is a lot smoother and more grounded than that of, say, Clams Casino. We’ve lately posted Hemsworth tracks like “Perfectly,” “Proto,” and “Colour & Movement,” as well as his remixes for Cat Power, Lana Del Rey, and Rhye. And now Hemsworth has released a free seven-track online EP called Still Awake. Check it out below.
