Listen: Little Dragons infectious new song Let Go
Apr 22, 2014 11:00am | Cosequence Of Sound

Little Dragon have broken off another piece of their new album, Nabuma Rubberband, due out May 13th via Loma Vista. Whereas “Klapp Klapp” stirred up the hypnotics and “Paris” got its groove on, “Let Go” is a slick and sweeping R&B-tinged pop cut. With synths bubbling up surreptitiously and the beat weaving an entrancing pitter-patter pattern, the track’s atmospherics ultimately serve as the perfect backdrop for Yukimi Nagano’s all-consuming chorus. Listen in below and let “Let Go” whisk you away.

Nabuma Rubberband Tracklist:
01. Mirror
02. Klapp Klapp
03. Pretty Girls
04. Underbart
05. Cat Rider
06. Paris
07. Lurad
08. Nabuma Rubberband
09. Only One
10. Killing Me
11. Pink Cloud
12. Let Go

In support, the band will tour the U.S. this spring.

Museum Mouth releasing a new LP (stream new song, "Drool")
Apr 22, 2014 10:59am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

Southport, NC's Museum Mouth churn out lo-fi Superchunk/Archers of Loaf-style indie rock, but the first thing you'll notice is probably vocalist Karl Kuehn, whose voice is somewhere between a nasally whine and an angsty shout. The way it comes in on new single "Drool" is jarring, and can even be a little off-putting at first. But indie rock has always been a place for unpolished, untrained vocalists to shine, and throughout the course of "Drool"'s 2+ minutes, Kuehn starts to do just that. Check it out for yourself -- the track premieres in this post and can be streamed below.

"Drool" will appear on Museum Mouth's upcoming third album, Alex I Am Nothing, which comes out on May 27 via Self Aware Records (pre-order). Album artwork, tracklist, and a trailer video, along with the new song stream, below. The band also play hometown festival Hopscotch this year.

Run The Jewels Working With Zack De La Rocha, Travis Barker On LP2
Apr 22, 2014 10:57am | StereoGum

One of the magical things about Run The Jewels, the free-online album that El-P and Killer Mike made together last year, was how sui generis it was — two snarling rap dudes with disparate backgrounds but similar ideas coming together, shutting out all outside influences, and coming up with some of the meanest and funnest and most immediate music they could conjure. That first album only had a couple of outside guests: A verse from Mike’s old OutKast mentor Big Boi, a quick string of absurdist come-ons from De La Soul producer Prince Paul, nothing else. El and Mike have been working on a Run The Jewels follow-up for a whole, and from the looks of things, it won’t be quite so free of outside influence. In fact, a couple of bona fide rock stars might be helping out on it.

Xosar to make UK live debut at Rush Hour loft party in London
Apr 22, 2014 10:49am | Fact Magazine

It’s hard to believe that since leaving the USA behind and taking up residence in the Netherlands, synthesizer fetishist Xosar has never actually performed in the UK.

Well that’s all about to change – on Friday May 2 she’s set to take center stage at the Reviveher Rush Hour Loft Party, at Studio Who. She’s not coming alone either, Rush Hour founder Antal will be in tow, as will Amsterdam’s San Proper, making it a proper family affair.

It’s the perfect chance to get to clap eyes on Xosar before the imminent release of her debut album – due some time this year – so you should know what to do.

Space is extremely limited (with it being a loft party, and all) so tickets are recommended, and can be purchased here.

Listen: Portugal. The Mans endangered song Sumatran Tiger
Apr 22, 2014 10:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

If you’re still reeling from Sunday’s combination of 4:20 and Easter, today is actually Earth Day. In celebration of our big, blue planet’s continued prosperity, Portugal. The Man has teamed up with the Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute to raise awareness of endangered Sumatran tigers. To do so, the band’s released something called an “endangered song.”

Just what kind of hippie nonsense is an “endangered song,” you ask? (No doubt while chopping down a tree or starting a tire fire.) The aptly titled “Sumatran Tiger” exists solely as 400 (for the number of remaining tigers) 7-inch singles, which will degrade after a certain number of uses. The song, which was sent out to “carefully chosen influencers, among them actors, activists, musicians, conservationists, bloggers and journalists,” will “go extinct unless it’s reproduced.” The band’s encouraging fans to “scour the Internet” and use the hashtags #endangeredsong and #sumatrantiger to track it down. Also, pretty sure they don’t mean “put on eBay for $250,” but that’s just a guess.

While a song named after this beast should invoke the fury of speed metal, Portugal’s crafted a slow-burning psych-rock anthem, full of sweltering guitar solos slinking through a sonic jungle of lasery studio effects, layers of lush falsetto harmonie...

Watch An Action-Packed Clip From Loiter Squad Season 3
Apr 22, 2014 10:43am | StereoGum

Odd Future’s sketch-comedy show Loiter Squad has been going strong for a few years now on Adult Swim. The third season of the show will be out this spring, and they’ve just shared a new teaser. Beginning with Tyler and the other members of Loiter Squad (which includes Earl Sweatshirt now) in a restaurant, it quickly breaks out into action-packed insanity for no explainable reason. It doesn’t make any sense, but you get to see Blake from Workaholics shoot a flamethrower, so it’s hard to complain. At they end they also announce a live Q&A the band will hold tomorrow morning on their Facebook page. Watch it below.


Islands & Idiot Glee Are You Sleeping? (Harry Nilsson Cover)
Apr 22, 2014 10:43am | StereoGum

Harry Nilsson is one of those musicians whose influence far outstrips his fame. His music feels like a sacred trust among the initiated, which is why you’re just as likely to hear famous musicians covering his songs as to stumble upon one of his original recordings. The latest Nilsson tribute comes from Islands’ Nick Diamonds and Idiot Glee’s James Friley, who teamed up on a rendition of “Are You Sleeping” from the 1971 animated film The Point. These two indie-pop auteurs have their own well-developed personal styles, but they treat this one with extreme reverence because the original is just that good. Listen below.


Menzingers Rented World
Apr 22, 2014 10:42am | CMJ

It seems like a rule for Scranton, PA-based rockers the Menzingers not to mince words. They’re a group that aims to say exactly what they mean, whether it’s an admittance that they know when they’re going to fuck up, or claiming that they simply dont want to be assholes anymore. The Menzingers have grown up considerably since their inception in 2006. Each album has been a slight departure from the last, cleaning up, tweaking and honing in on their sound. Between 2012s On The Impossible Past and Rented World, it feels like the band has gotten comfortable with who they are. Their lyrics of heartbreak, being pissed off and the eventual willingness to admit when they make mistakes has made us feel all the while, theyve just gotten better at saying it.

Rented World kicks off with I Dont Wanna Be An Asshole Anymore. This track sounds very similar to The Obituaries off On The Impossible Past. It builds and crashes with clamoring drums and searing guitars. Lyrically, it’s as close to an apology as youll get from the Menzingers: And Ive been wandering and I live through the garden of your heartache/Always making a mess, always stumbling out the door/But I dont wanna be an asshole anymore/Woah baby, baby Ill be good to you.

As things progress, the band takes some sonic risks and tries techniques they havent really explored before. An example of this is Where ...

White Lung Snake Jaw
Apr 22, 2014 10:35am | StereoGum

The first song we heard off White Lung’s forthcoming Deep Fantasy, “Drown With The Monster,” was an unrelenting, ass-kicking noise/hardcore burner. The new “Snake Jaw” finds the band in much more melodic territory, with no drop-off in intensity. It’s not hard to hear hints of Hole’s Live Through This here, especially in frontwoman Mish Way’s sneering, snarling vocal, although the frenetic guitars have more in common with the post-hardcore of Jawbox or Drive Like Jehu. It’s another excellent song from what’s shaping up to be an excellent album. Listen.

1. Mirror
2. Klapp Klapp
3. Pretty Girls
4. Underbart

Little Dragon Let Go
Apr 22, 2014 10:26am | StereoGum

Little Dragon, the idiosyncratic and bigger-than-you-realize pop quartet from Gothenburg, Sweden, are coming up on the release of their new album Nabuma Rubberband, and we’ve already gotten to hear the early tracks “Klapp Klapp” and “Paris.” “Let Go,” the newest single from the album, seems heavily influenced by Sade’s smooth and sophisticated R&B. But it filters that sound through the festival-ready synthpop that’s currently running things. It’s a pretty, spacey combination, and you can hear it below.

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks @ Bowery Ballroom 4/21/2014

Animal Collective's Avey Tare released Enter the Slasher House earlier this month via Domino and he and his Slasher Flicks are currently on tour in support. That tour hit NYC last night (4/21) for a show at Bowery Ballroom. The band -- which includes Angel Deradoorian -- played in near darkness, save for a few glowing skulls on stage. Spooky. Dustin Wong, who played with Deradoorian the night before at Baby's All Right, opened the show with his impressive loop pedal skills. Pictures from the show are in this post.

Meanwhile, Kevin Barnes of Of Montreal (who play NYC next month) reviewed Enter the Slasher House over at The Talkhouse:

i like how much he sings and how many different words he uses without articulating anything penetrable on any simple human "emotional" level. though it is very emotive, just in a more abstract sort of way. it is as if a policemanhumanshield-constructed garden was viewed by all as pornographic and gained some heavy notoriety. lots of desperation/repetition and shaking of a friend by the shoulders and very little storming off in a huff, virtually no huff to speak of, and i do appreciate that. the gnarly things we might find if pulling up the carpeting in a bathroom during a renovation, a decrepit inner city house being flipped yet enough...

Available on: A1 / Freebandz / Epic Records LP

Here are the first four singles that preceded Futures Honest: the controversial synth-blasted ‘Karate Chop’, the twinkling ‘Honest’, the menacing fuck-the-club-up bow-thrower ‘Shit’ and ‘Real and True’, a piano ballad featuring Miley Cyrus and Mr. Hudson. While two of those ended up as bonus tracks and one ended up in the bin, one thing was clear: if theres anyone that can mix with equal efficacy rap and R&B, bangers and ballads, the street and the bedroom, its Future.

On Pluto, Future mostly told drug-fueled tales of conspicuous consumption, with heavy doses of Auto-Tune and astronaut metaphors. Apart from the romantic outliers, Future seemed content to play the part of hustler-turnt-rapper, only hinting at something more personal on songs like Permanent Scar and Truth Gonna Hurt You. On the latter, he juxtaposed the usual boasts (“I live the high life, sexing, syrup and money”) with a confession: “Feel like sinkin, I’m in sand / Some things you wouldnt understand.

On Honest, hes ready to make the listener understand. The album starts strong, with Future oozing confidence on the full-throated boasts of Look Ahead and T-Shirt. “Put the pussy on a nigga tongue / ‘Til the pussy juice runnin’ down my lungs, he shouts on the lead cut, Ain’t another better feel...

Movement Ivory
Apr 22, 2014 10:19am | StereoGum

Last month we heard Movement’s “Like Lust,” a tidal wave of a song that washes over you like Burial giving up debating whether to make a trip-hop song or a post-rock song and deciding to make both. “Ivory,” another track from the Australian trio’s upcoming self-titled EP, maintains that ghostly feeling but feels more like chopped and screwed house music with a complementary ’80s guitar solo. These guys sure understand how to stretch the imagination! Listen below.
