Watch: Team Spirit Teenage Heart Video
Jul 22, 2014 12:57pm | CMJ


When I first started watching the video for Team Spirit’s wide-eyed pop single Teenage Heart, I thought I was in for another Bound 2 parody. Instead, it morphed into something quite different, with frontman Ayad Al Adhamy playing both the doctor and the patient in some kind of twisted game of Operation. There’s blood, guts and organs (Teenage Heart, get it?) and an obligatory sexy nurse, Blink-182-style. Team Spirit’s upcoming album, Killing Time (one of our most anticipated of 2014), is out this fall via Vice. Watch the video below.

The post Watch: Team Spirit – “Teenage Heart” Video appeared first on CMJ.



Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) A Keepsake
Jul 22, 2014 12:38pm | StereoGum

“A Keepsake” is the second single we’ve heard off the eclectically named Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)’s forthcoming album, You Will Eventually Be Forgotten, their first since 2009. Michigan couple Keith and Cathy Latinen premiered their first new song earlier this month, and “A Keepsake” is a fitting follow-up to the slow wail that was “If It’s Bad News, It Can Wait.” It’s the same delicate nostalgia delivered cleanly and sincerely, with a guest appearance from Braid frontman Bob Nanna. If these songs are any indication, the new album will be a sad symphony — but a neatly sad one. Listen to “A Keepsake” over at NPR.

Kimbra releasing a new LP, touring w/ Empress Of (dates and streams)
Jul 22, 2014 12:30pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Kimbra at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)

Kimbra quickly escalated from only being known (in the US) as the other singer on that Gotye song to someone who could headline some pretty large rooms. She's now set to release her first album since that newfound success, The Golden Echo, on August 19 via Warner Brothers. The album was produced by Rich Costey (The Shins, TV on the Radio) and features contributions from The Mars Volta's Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Dirty Projectors' Dave Longstreth and others. It's already spawned four diverse singles, which you can listen to below.

Kimbra will support the new record on a tour with NYC art pop singer Empress Of that hits Empress Of's hometown on November 6 at Bowery Ballroom, a smaller place than Kimbra's last headlining show here. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/25) at noon.

All dates are listed, with those song streams, below...

SBTRKT announces new album, streams New Dorp. New York featuring Ezra Koenig
Jul 22, 2014 12:30pm | Cosequence Of Sound

UK producer SBTRKT has announced the release of Wonder Where We Land, his highly-anticipated sophomore album and follow-up to 2011’s excellent self-titled debut. That’s the album artwork above. Below, watch a brief teaser trailer.

The album’s first single, “New Dorp. New York”, features Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. Over a bed of busy clacking and thwacking production, the Vampire Weekend frontman and SBTRKT speak-sing an ode of sorts to the good ole Big Apple. Listen to a radio rip below.

In the lead up to Wonder Where We Land, SBTRKT released an EP of instrumental music titled Transitions. He also unveiled a collaboration with Sampha called “Temporary View”.

Tom Vek released 'Luck' (stream it), playing NYC during CMJ
Jul 22, 2014 12:18pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Tom Vek released his third album, Luck, last month via Moshi Moshi. His style -- jittery, syncopated, danceable postpunk -- is as distinctive as his voice, and he doesn't futz with the formula too much here. That's not a bad thing. You can stream the album via Rdio and check out a few tracks, remixes and videos from Luck below.

Tom will be in NYC in October, playing Baby's All Right on 10/20 and Mercury Lounge on 10/21. Tickets for Baby's and Mercury Lounge go on sale Friday (7/25) at noon with an AmEx presale for Mercury Lounge starting Wednesday (7/23) at noon.

Both of those shows happen the same week as this year's CMJ Fest (Oct. 21 - 25). The Baby's show is before CMJ starts and its unclear whether the Merc show is an official showcase. But expect more Tom Vek shows that week to be announced as we get closer to the fest.

Videos, streams and remixes below...

Kranky reveals new synth-based Labradford side-project Anjou; stream a track now
Jul 22, 2014 12:09pm | Fact Magazine

Anjou is the culmination of four years work from Labradford’s Mark Nelson and Robert Donne, and virtuoso percussionist Steven Hess.

All three names should be familiar with anyone who’s spent any time leafing through the Kranky back catalogue. Hess and Nelson worked together on the crucial Pan American recordings, and Donne recorded as Aix Em Klemm with Stars of the Lid’s Adam Wiltzie, as well as recording crucial work as Cristal. Now the three have joined forces to create a refined record of digital and analogue synth processing, accented by Steven Hess’s percussive backbone.

You can hear ‘Sighting’, the very first taster of Anjou, below – a cavernous, sub-aquatic monster of a drone, that gradually builds into something oddly beautiful with the assistance of Hess’s familiar patter.

Anjou will be released on September 15 via Kranky.

Tracklist:

01 Lamptest
02 Sighting
03 Specimen Question
04 Readings
05 Inclosed
06 Adjustment
07 Backsight
08 Fieldwork


Zammuto Hegemony
Jul 22, 2014 12:08pm | StereoGum

Nick Zammuto is getting ready to release Anchor, the second album of his post-Books solo career. We already heard the bloopy breeziness of “Great Equator,” and now he’s released a very different offering, “Hegemony.” The new one features female vocals and hard-hitting live percussion before shifting into a crunchy guitar solo to close things out. It’s a far cry from the sample-filled folk music of early releases by the Books, but it also feels like a direction Zammuto has been heading in for years. Listen to it over on NPR.

Flying Lotus Announces Youre Dead! LP, Tour
Jul 22, 2014 12:05pm | StereoGum

At the end of last year we were already highly anticipating a new album from Flying Lotus. He’d been talking about it online, playing new material live, and now we’ve officially gotten word that it’s coming this fall. The producer and Brainfeeder boss’ fifth album will be titled You’re Dead; it follows 2012′s spacious, dreamy Until The Quiet Comes. There’s very little information now, though we do know it will be out October 7 via Warp, and that you’ll be able to catch him on tour on the dates listed below.

Nude Beach I Cant Keep The Tears From Falling
Jul 22, 2014 12:03pm | StereoGum

Two years ago, the young Brooklyn-based rock band Nude Beach released their album II, deeply enjoyable piece of classic-rock-informed punk. Every song aimed straight for the pleasure center and hit its target, and I fucked up badly when I didn’t give it Album Of The Week. (Seriously, in three years of writing that column, it’s one of my biggest regrets.) I might get a chance to redeem myself this fall, when the band follows up II with a grand new double-disc album called 77. The album’s mere existence is awesome news, and the first song they’ve shared is a very promising indicator of where this thing is going. “I Can’t Keep The Tears From Falling” is a scrappy, melodic, catchy-as-hell piece of songcraft, a three-minute power-pop rager with a lot of Ramones and Replacements in its DNA. You should absolutely give it a listen below.

Ryan Adams Announces Hardcore 10-Song 7 1984
Jul 22, 2014 12:01pm | StereoGum

Ryan Adams’ uneven 2003 LP, Rock N Roll, includes a song called “1974,” co-written with Alanis Morissette, named after the year both artists were born. Now, Adams is set to release a new 10-song 7″ that will celebrate some of the music made a decade after Adams’ (and Morissette’s) birth. The 1984 EP “pays homage to the halcyon days of the earliest releases from Dischord, SST, Touch & Go and their ilk.” The EP is entirely distinct from Adams’ forthcoming self-titled LP (which features the excellent lead single “Gimme Something Good“), although perhaps its arrival indicates that we can expect to see a return of the Ryan Adams who used to drop two or three LPs ever year, rather than the one who’s been largely silent since 2011. Check out the 1984 tracklist and release info below.

Team Spirit Teenage Heart Video
Jul 22, 2014 11:50am | StereoGum

The former Passion Pit member Ayad Al Adhamy now leads the explosive garage rock quartet Team Spirit, and their sophomore album Killing Time comes out in a couple of months. Al Adhamy has a double role in the band’s gory new video for their giddy single “Teenage Heart“; he plays a sadistic doctor and the patient who becomes the victim of said doctor’s zeal. The whole thing is a cartoonish pile of guts, complete with the obligatory sexy nurse, and Dorian Tocker is the party responsible for directing it. Watch it below.

UNCHARTED: Halifaxs Monomyth arent trying to revive anything
Jul 22, 2014 11:49am | Chart Attack
Uncharted is Chart Attack's monthly showcase of independent Canadian artists we think you should hear. This week, East Coast janglers Monomyth talk standing inside and outside Halifax's grungy power pop lineage,  splitting songwriting duties, and Mint Record's renaissance.

Revival is a quaint little narrative. While, yes, being from Nova Scotia's capital and trading in a catchy, grunge-inflected sound, Monomyth understands that they belong, in some small way, to a long and reputed lineage of Halifax pop bands. But, for the most part, that's just a convenient hook. The three-year-old four-piece came of age more so alongside the local punk and indie rock scenes circa 2000 than listening to anything that happened the decade prior.

The gauzy, garagey psych-pop act charts a course that crosses The Jesus and Mary Chain, Eric's Trip, and Pet Sounds. (You could go earlier and soda shoppier on this bearing, more Buddy Holly and the Crickets-ways even; and in the same spirit, you could sub any of Seth Smith's bands for Eric's Trip). And that's probably what throws people if you're from the East Coast and you play something that, at some choice times, might be called "jangly" or "saccharine," you inevitably get filed next to Sloan. And like Monomyth say, "I don't care, Sloan's cool," but that kinda belies their whole spacey, swirling aesthetic and that's probably their best side.

We caught guitarist Seamus Dalton on a grey, drizzly after...
