All Them Witches released an LP, on tour with Windhand
Sep 16, 2014 10:41am | Brooklyn Vegan

Lightning at the Door album art

Nashville's psych-rockers All Them Witches are giving their album, Lightning at the Door, a proper release today (9/16). It's a heady brew of swirling tones and heavy blue-eyed blues rock. The tracks also have that bracing spontaneity of crack improvisers. Says singer/bassist Michael Parks, Jr. regarding their approach: "In terms of the music, we're so loose, and that's where the magic comes from. There's no controlling factor. We do exactly what comes naturally. We go in a room without any idea about what will happen, get in the groove, and it works. That's supernatural." You can check out a couple of its tracks below.

All Them Witches are currently on tour with crushing doomers Windhand. This Saturday's (9/20) show at NYC's Saint Vitus with Ilsa and Polygamyst is on the very near horizon. That show is also very nearly sold out according to Saint Vitus's Facebook: "If you want tickets to Windhand, act soon. There are less than 30 left." Tickets are, indeed, available now.

Updated dates are listed, with the song streams, below...

Sub Pop To Reissue Flake Music’s When You Land Here, It’s Time To Leave
Sep 16, 2014 10:40am | CMJ


In 1997, New Mexico’s Flake Music released When You Land Here, It’s Time To Leave. The band was a collaborative project helmed by James Mercer and several members of what would later become the Shins. The Shins became the group’s main project, but When You Land Here, It’s Time To Leave has remained a well-loved album, displaying much of the lilting, lo-fi charm that so characterizes the Shins’ breakthrough album, 2001’s Oh, Inverted World.

Today, Aural Apothecary has announced that a full-scale reissue of the album will be released on November 24 in the U.K. and November 25 in the U.S. via Sub Pop. The reissue features all of the album’s eleven tracks, remixed by Kennie Takahashi and remastered by J.J. Golden at Golden Mastering, as well as new album art. It provides a delightful insight into what came before one of the biggest bands in aughts indie rock.

Check out the remastered version of When You Land Here, It’s Time To Leave track Spanway Hits below.

Austria’s Elevate Festival have revealed their entire festival programme for 2014.

It was already looking like a line-up not to be missed, with appearances confirmed from Tessela, Kode9, Mika Vainio, Mala, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and plenty more. Now the full list has been revealed and unsurprisingly it’s shaping up to be one of 2014′s best selections.

Industrial electronic experimentalists Emptyset will be performing, as will Source Direct, Fracture, Aux88, Vessel (who just contributed a truly brilliant FACT mix), Shit and Shine, Noveller, Rhys Chatham and more.

For more information and tickets make sure you head over to the Elevate site.


Watch The Previously Untold True Story Of David Bowie, Brian Eno, & Tony Visconti Recording Warszawa
Sep 16, 2014 10:32am | StereoGum

Low is certainly one of David Bowie’s very best albums, but when it comes to backstory, no other album compares. A lot of this is covered in Hugo Wilcken’s reverent 33 1/3 book , but: The thing was recorded when Bowie was at his creative peak and his mental/emotional bottom. Each track has its own amazing story, but among the most interesting is the one behind “Warszawa,” which is now the subject of a cartoon by the Brothers McLeod. What you see here is factually accurate, even though it seems pretty silly — Bowie and Eno really did come up with ideas through random chance cards, Visconti described the Eventide H910 Harmonizer (an early pitch shifter) as “fucking with the fabric of time,” and he really did do more than people think to make that album what it eventually became. The story is told here by voice actor Adam Buxton with a wonderful tongue-in-cheek humor. If they made a video for each Low track, it would be an incredible documentary (seriously guys, do a Kickstarter or something). In the meantime watch the video below.

JUNGLE. The Heat (Joy Orbison Remix)
Sep 16, 2014 10:30am | StereoGum

JUNGLE. spent the first half of this year building momentum that climaxed with the release of their debut album in July. Now they’re poised to ride out the second half of 2014 inviting other artists to remix the songs on that album. And just as this group knows how to write a tune and pick excellent directors for videos, they also really know which remixers to work with. Joy Orbison first appeared in 2009 with “Hyph Mngo,” one of the great dance tracks of the last decade and one of the strongest debut singles of this generation. Since then, Joy O has worked steadily, but releases on average maybe one single a year. Simply put, it’s a big deal when you see his name on anything, and here he takes the light, playful funk of “The Heat” and morphs it into a tight, razor-sharp rhythm workout. Listen to it below, it’s a rare and incredible thing.

Teengirl Fantasy Lung (Feat. Lafawndah)
Sep 16, 2014 10:28am | StereoGum

Besides a one-off track in January, this year has been quiet for the Amsterdam-based production duo Teengirl Fantasy. That’s about to change: they’ve just announced a new EP, Thermal, that will be out in November, and shared the first track from the new release. “Lung” doesn’t stray far from the witch-house-once-removed vibe the band was exploring on their last release, 2013′s Nun EP. It does, however, have a bit of a softer touch courtesy of breathy vocals from Middle Eastern singer Lafawndah. Listen below.

Deptford Goth Two Hearts
Sep 16, 2014 10:23am | StereoGum

I’m crushed to report that “Two Hearts,” the new song from the British pop tinkerer Deptford Goth, is not a Phil Collins cover. It is, however, a pretty good song in its own right. This “Two Hearts” is a heavy-hearted melodic lament with just a hint of a gospel influence. It follows “The Lovers” as the second single from Depthford Goth’s forthcoming album Songs, and you can hear it below.

Jeremih Dont Tell Em (Remix) (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana)
Sep 16, 2014 10:22am | StereoGum

Jeremih’s Snap!-interpolating illicit sex jam “Don’t Tell ’Em” is significant for multiple reasons. For one thing, it’s one of the Chicago R&B singer’s biggest hits to date, ruling R&B radio, nearing the top 10 of the pop singles chart, and helping to put the novelty curio “Birthday Sex” (still his highest-charting song) further in the rearview. For another, it’s arguably the greatest DJ Mustard production in a year full of great DJ Mustard productions. So it’s no surprise that “Don’t Tell ’Em” just got a remix with additional voices from fellow high-B-listers Ty Dolla $ign and French Montana. Alas, the gleefully raunchy YG verse has been lopped off, which means we don’t get to come together and shout, “I got a missed call from your bitch!” Ty$ and French don’t offer anything quite that memorable, but damn does that Jeremih/Mustard combination remain potent. Listen below.

Watch: Christopher Owens – “Never Wanna See That Look Again” Video
Sep 16, 2014 10:17am | CMJ


Ex-Girls frontman Christopher Owens’ new solo album, A New Testament, will drop in around two weeks, but before that, here’s a video for the glam-folk single, Never Wanna See That Look Again. The clip features Owens wandering around an old film set, sporting a cowboy hat and showing off some screen siren chops. Aaron Brown directs. Watch the video (via Dazed Digital) below.

Christopher Owens Never Wanna See That Look Again Video
Sep 16, 2014 10:05am | StereoGum

Christopher Owens starts out his new video for “Never Wanna See That Look Again” wearing a cowboy hat and silhouetted in front of a prairie sunset. But it’s almost immediately that Owens isn’t in some Old West desert. Instead, he’s in a TV studio, with a guitarist, wearing very-tight clothes and posing in front of a cheap backdrop. In the video, we see Owens performing hard, falling to his knees and crawling across the floor while singing the upbeat, countrified song. Aaron Brown of Focus Creeps directed the video, which follows Owens’ “Nothing More Than Everything To Me” clip as the second one from the former Girls frontman’s solo album A New Testament. Check it out below.
