Foxygen Announce New Album, Share How Can You Really
Jul 30, 2014 3:15pm | CMJ

Despite a seemingly endless supply of onstage fights, solo albums, and break-up rumors from bright-eyed pop band Foxygen last year, it seems the band is still going strong. So strong in fact, that the follow-up to last year’s We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace And Magic, called Foxygen…And Star Power, is a giant at 24 tracks long!

The album’s first single, How Can You Really, is a big, nostalgic piano ballad with an incredibly sticky chorus. The Grant Singer-directed video for the track features vocalist Sam France dancing through a poorly lit office space and in warehouses. If you’re worried the band drama of yesteryear has evaporated, note Jonathan Rado’s slight eye roll every time he appears on camera. Check it out along with the album tracklist, below.

Tracklist For Foxygen…And Star Power:
01. Star Power Airlines
02. How Can You Really
03. Coulda Been My Love
04. Cosmic Vibrations
05. You & I
06. Star Power I: Overture
07. Star Power II: Star Power Nite
08. Star Power III: What Are We Good For
09. Star Power IV: Ooh Ooh
10. I Dont Have Anything/The Gate
11. Mattress Warehouse
12. 666
13. Flowers
14. Wallys Farm
15. Cannibal Holocaust
16. Hot Summer
17. Cold Winter/Freedom
18. Cant Contextualize My Mind
19. Brooklyn Police Station
20. The Game

Video : Foxygen : How Can You Really
Jul 30, 2014 3:04pm | My Old Kentucky Blog

Given all of the chaos that was occurring internally in Foxygen, we were going to be pretty surprised if they got around to making a follow-up to their excellent debut, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace & Magic. But here we are and the band has announced their new LP, Foxygen…and Star Power, out on October 14th via Jagjaguwar. To go along with the announcement, they have given us the first song “How Can You Really” along with the official video. The song is sort of blue-eyed soul meets psych-rock and completely enjoyable. Watch and listen below.

Watch: Jessie Ware debuts new song Champagne Kisses
Jul 30, 2014 3:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Later this year, Jessie Ware is expected to release Tough Love, her sophomore album and follow-up to 2012’s excellent Devotion. Already we’ve heard its gorgeous BenZel-produced title track and “Share It All”, which was co-written by The xx’s Romy Madley Croft. Now, thanks to vigilant Ware fans, we have a glimpse at another promising LP cut called “Champagne Kisses”.

The London songstress debuted the ballad reportedly written in New York at the same time as “Tough Love”  during a show in Poland over the weekend. While its production is more of the slow-burning synth-pop variety, Ware’s vocals are anything but tame. As you’ll see in the fan-footage below, she flaunts her falsetto with both poise and power. Check out her performance of “Champagne Kisses” below.

And catch Ware live on her upcoming world tour.

Jessie Ware 2014 Tour Dates:
08/07 Charlbury, UK @ Wilderness Festival
09/05 Berlin, DE @ Berlin Festival
09/24 Amsterdam, NL @ Bitterzoet
09/25 Warsaw, PL @ Basen
09/26 Paris, FR @ Trabendo
10/02 London, UK @ St John at Hackney
10/03 Manchester, UK @ Manchester Cathedral
10/21 San Francisco, CA @ The Chapel
10/23 Los Angeles, CA @ The Tower
10/26 Toronto, Ontario @ The Great Hall
10/28 Brooklyn, NY @ Brooklyn Masonic Temple

Youll Never Believe This, But Tom Petty Thinks EDM Shows Are Stupid
Jul 30, 2014 2:57pm | StereoGum

Tom Petty has been doing some press to promote the new Heartbreakers record Hypnotic Eye, and one of those interviews found him sounding off on electronic dance music festivals. You’ll never guess what he thinks about them. Specifically, Petty has this to say about the highly profitable Electric Daisy Carnival, where two people died this year:


Speedy Ortiz American Horror Video
Jul 30, 2014 2:45pm | StereoGum

Speedy Ortiz released their Real Hair EP earlier this year, and it included “American Horror,” one of the band’s very best songs to date. Now they’ve given that song a charming video, directed by Peter Binswanger, which riffs on some horror-movie and video-game references, but with a pretty silly and good-natured attitude. It’s less American Horror Story and more in the spirit of how most people actually act while watching American Horror Story. With all the things that pop up in this video, I feel like you could sit down with this band and have a really fun conversation about Suspiria, Mortal Kombat, and Day Of The Tentacle. Watch.


All Your Favorite Members Of Animal Collective (Except Panda Bear) Announce DJ Tour

Goblins soundtrack to Dario Argentos Phenomena finally receives proper vinyl pressing
Jul 30, 2014 2:38pm | Fact Magazine

Released in 1985, it would be fair to say Phenomena (also known as Creepers) isn’t exactly Dario Argento’s best loved movie.

It starred a young Jennifer Connelly, who plays a girl who slowly discovers that she’s been blessed with psychic powers, but it sadly didn’t bear up well to fans who just wanted another Suspiria or even Tenebre. Thankfully, it wasn’t all bad news – as usual for Argento, the film sported a natty soundtrack from cult Italian prog heroes Goblin, well, sort of. A short score was composed by Goblin’s Claudio Simonetti and Fabio Pignatelli, and was fleshed out with stadium fillers from Iron Maiden and Motörhead – it was 1985, remember.

The original vinyl release contained all the tracks – with Goblin’s compositions nestled uncomfortably in-between the brash metal, but don’t worry, a new re-issue is just around the corner. AMS, who have steadily been making sure all of Goblin’s run of releases are getting the necessary deluxe treatment, are set to put the score out in full, with a few alternate versions to flesh it out to album length.

Keen Goblin fans will know that these tracks were all released previously on the Cinevox imprint, but since that was CD only, we’re pretty excited about the idea of getting them on vinyl, finally. And it’s not just any old vinyl either – ...

Foxygen How Can You Really Video + And Star Power Details
Jul 30, 2014 2:36pm | StereoGum

Foxygen spent much of last year dealing with a whole lot of drama, which at times overshadowed the actual album they released, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors Of Peace & Magic. Now they’ve announced a follow-up, a 24-song collection that will be titled Foxygen … And Star Power, and with that announcement, they’ve given us the album’s first single and video. “How Can You Really” is a totally excellent bit of Cali psych pop bursting with joyous melodies that will engulf you in sweetness and light. Check it out below, with album details below that.


Foxygen announce new album and tour, share first single How Can You Really
Jul 30, 2014 2:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Back in April, Foxygen announced that they were nearly finished with their new studio album, the follow-up to last year’s breakout, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic. With a supporting American tour set to begin later this week, the band has now revealed the full details of the LP. Entitled …And Star Power, the 24-track effort will be released on October 14th via Jagjaguwar.

As Pitchfork points out, the band has released a promotional image, which describes the album as such: “A svelte 82-minute run time of psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, soft-rock indulgences, D&D doomrock and paranoid bathroom stompers. A cinematic auditory adventure for speedy freaks, skull krunchers, abductees and misfits”. The album also apparently features “A gaggle of guest stars.”

In anticipation, the band has shared “How Can You Really”, a whimsical and peppy folk-pop number lined with jangly piano chords and the occasional bellow of a brassy instrument. In its fun corresponding music video, directed by Grant Singer, frontman Sam France tries his hand at an office job.

Foxygen previously debuted the song live at Coachella; watch fan-shot footage below.

The Great Void releasing an LP ft. Twin Shadow, Autre Ne Veut, Neon Indian mems (watch a video), playing Cameo
Jul 30, 2014 2:22pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

The Great Void is the moniker of Brooklyn musician Josh Ascalon, who has some pretty talented friends in the area such as Twin Shadow, Autre Ne Veut, Hooray for Earth, Chrome Canyon and members of Neon Indian, all of whom appear on his upcoming album. He's talented himself too, as you can hear on his brand new single, "Shift Age" which Chrome Canyon plays theremin on. It's '80s-style synth pop and readymade for the dancefloor (think "Blue Monday" or something), but Josh's rawer vocals recall the post-punk that much of that kind of stuff evolved out of. We've got the premiere of the video, which was animated by Johnny Woods, and you can watch that below. It's technically NSFW, but it is only animated, so maybe your boss will let it slide.

The Great Void celebrates the new single with a release party on Friday (8/1) at Cameo. It's a midnight show, and Neon Indian headlines with a DJ set. Also on the bill is Ta$$y. Tickets are on sale now.

Video below...

Morrissey refutes former bodyguards' claims he wanted to "hurt" fan site operator, calls them a "vexatious lie"
Jul 30, 2014 2:13pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Morrissey in Austin this year (more by Tim Griffin)

As reported earlier today, Morrissey is being sued by former bodyguard Bradley Steyn who claims he was asked to hurt David Tseng who runs fan site Morrissey has responded to these allegations, on Moz conduit True to You, calling them "vexatious lies." (You can totally hear him saying that, can't you?) Here's an excerpt:

The very idea that I would ask a complete stranger (Bradley Steyn) to physically attack David Tseng surely cannot register with any sane person as being likely. As mildly irritating as David Tseng may be, he is not someone who troubles me enough to even bother with.

The shabby truth of this drama is that Bradley Steyn has been trying to extract money from what he terms "the Morrissey tour", and he has failed. He is now desperate, and this story is his latest escapade to gain someone's attention. What he is telling the world is that, as a music venue security officer, anyone who works with him in the future should expect the same harassment and persecution as he is now - mysteriously - wielding my way. It is beyond belief, and it is shocking that someone who makes claims of professionalism would lower himself to this level.

You can read Morrissey's entire statement below...
