G-Side Statue
Apr 15, 2014 2:44pm | StereoGum

The one time I saw Huntsville rap duo G-Side in concert they made me a fan forever with their electric stage presence, powerful delivery, and a live band that featured some seriously passionate backup singers. So, like all other reasonable people, I was bummed when they broke up and elated when they got back together. Now they’ve delivered the first single from their anticipated comeback album Gz To Godz. It’s called “Statue,” and it is indeed monumental. Over a Block Beattaz beat that quickly moves from brisk, horn-laden hustle to ominously stomping trap music, these guys show they haven’t lost a step, running the gamut from rapid-fire lyrical boasts to sing-songy autotuned moans. Download it below and watch your day improve immeasurably.

Wormed black metal side project Wrong releasing a new album (stream it)
Apr 15, 2014 2:35pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Doug Moore

Wrong, doing...uh...?

The Spanish technical death metal band Wormed released one of my favorite metal albums of 2013 in their wackadoo sophomore effort Exodromos. When I came across Wrong -- a black metal side project featuring Wormed burp/squealer Phlegeton -- I jumped at the chance to check out their sophomore album, the rather ESL-sounding Pessimistic Outcomes.

The album comes out on April 22 via Xtreem Music, and we just premiered a full stream of it over at Invisible Oranges today. Like Wormed, Wrong tend towards the theatrical, but that's pretty much where the similarities end; Wrong play a restrained and decidedly morose version of BM that has little in common with Wormed's off-the-wall insanity. From our IO writeup:

Phlegeton's delivery in Wormed boils down to an array of squeals, burps, and chirps -- it works great over technical death metal, but is almost singularly ill-suited to mopey black metal. He's a talented vocalist and I expected him to modify his delivery, but perhaps not this much. The guttural component of his voice is almost completely absent here, replaced by a thoroughly effects-bathed range of washy sighs and shrieks that's heavily reminiscent of Wrest's delivery on the last couple of Leviathan records. His work here is a novel match for this otherwise conservative strain of black metal, and the album benefits conside...

Tim and Erics Pusswhip Banggang announces Jambalaya 12, tour dates
Apr 15, 2014 2:35pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim’s Pusswhip Banggang has returned from the swamp. The tongue-in-cheek rock ‘n’ roll outfit, which originally debuted in 2006 on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, toured back in 2010, nabbing thousands of fans with spicy Naw-Luns classics a la “Fudge Man”, “Kiss Me Once”, and “Don’t Call Me Uncle”. Now, they’re ready to hit the road again, and they’re celebrating with an exclusive 12″ picture-disc of their retro hit, “Jambalaya”.

As a press release indicates, “Jambalaya” is “not only a song, but also a recipe for one of the great Naw-Luns dishes.” Yes, the ultra-deluxe picture-disc actually packs a recipe for prospective chefs everywhere. And if you’re familiar with Heidecker’s resume, you’ll know this is but one of many culinary secrets he’s willing to share.

Be forewarned, though. The same release insists that “fans will have to pay dearly to be one of the few that own one of the few of these marvelous items.” Pre-orders begin on May 20th via Drag City, and diehards should book this link to purchase.

It’ll be equally hard to catch them live, too. So far, they’ve only announced three dates, and not surprisingly, they’re all in the Deep South. Tickets go onsale tomorrow, which means you’ll ...


Watch: Marissa Nadler Drive Video
Apr 15, 2014 2:27pm | CMJ


If you’ve listened to Marissa Nadler recent album, July, it probably won’t surprise you that her new video for Drive was directed by Naomi Yang of Galaxie 500. Though G500 tends to sound a lot more washed out than Nadler’s dark folk, the sense of cerebral vapor that flows through their music is a defining characteristic for both artists. The visual for Drive is similarly vaporous, layering open road film footage from French artist Bernard Faucon with brief moments of Nadler alone in an ornate home. Watch it below and read our Q&A with Nadler here.

Courtney Barnett Anonymous Club Video
Apr 15, 2014 2:19pm | StereoGum

Clever Australian rocker Courtney Barnett didn’t make it into my Sunday Coachella roundup, but only because I didn’t have long enough to watch her before jetting off to see Chance The Rapper. From the couple songs I did see, I’ll say this: Barnett is way more multifaceted than I gathered from “Avant Gardener” — that is, she can do much more than just quirky, comedic, and upbeat. “Anonymous Club,” for which she released a video today, demonstrates that versatility. The song itself is a faintly glimmering slowcore slow-burn from Barnett’s 2013 release The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas built around the romantic refrain “Thank you for cooking for me/ I had a really nice evening/ Just you and me.” The animated video by Celeste Potter adds a layer of intrigue to a song that brilliantly captures a moment of intense emotional connection and longing.

Heres a map of Americas musical preferences by genre
Apr 15, 2014 2:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Just before I moved to Austin in January, I had a conversation with a friend about the cultural makeup of Texas. At the end, they he declared, “Well, I hope you just like endless country and intermittent Christian talk radio.” That got me thinking: are states and regions really dominated by these musical stereotypes? Do the blues truly control the South? Is rock and roll just a New York institution? To solve these quandaries, online real estate broker Movoto has developed a map to display the country’s musical preferences by genre.

The “All-American Music Map” was put together using “data from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (via the Martin Prosperity Institute) and state level music preferences from Wikipedia,” according to Movoto. These scores include both survey data and “genre performer concentrations by metro,” which is the “concentration of musicians and music-related businesses” per city and region. The resulting interactive website then displays a “heatmap” for each musical genre, ranging from rock, pop, and country to EDM, punk, gospel, and “indie”. The red areas reflect the highest concentration of popularity, while green represents the least. Plus, it makes cartography seem hip again!

Watch: OFF!s hilarious new video for Red White and Black pins fascists against a biker gang
Apr 15, 2014 1:59pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Last week, hardcore outfit OFF! released their third studio album, Wasted Years. Today, they reveal the cameo-filled and action-packed video for LP standout “Red White and Black”.

Here, comedians Brian Posehn and Dave Foley play a pair of silly fascist generals who lead their minions into a huge bar fight with an angry biker gang. There’s a lot of smarmy muscle flexing here, but the brawl’s mostly a funny and over-exaggerated action sequence that leaves most of the fascist supporters portrayed by Tools Danny Carey, Jesus Lizards David Yow, Melvins Dale Crover, and T.S.O.L.s Jack Grisham totally defeated. Watch it below.

Watch Josh Homme Play A Disappointing Gay On Portlandia
Apr 15, 2014 1:55pm | StereoGum

We’ve seen rock stars Jeff Tweedy, Tunde Adebimpe, and St. Vincent (twice!) on Portlandia this year. Now Josh Homme’s episode is about to air. Homme plays Carrie Brownstein’s brother who brings home his boyfriend, played by Nick Swardson. Because they’re pizza-loving, Jager-chugging slobs who met at ESPN Zone, Brownstein and Fred Armisen dub them “disappointing gays.” But everyone learns a lesson about stereotyping in the end. Watch below.

Cheap Girls at BV-SXSW 2014 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Michigan power pop trio Cheap Girls just wrapped up tours with Against Me! and The Hold Steady (which included our SXSW showcase), and they've now announced that they'll hit the road again soon supporting Phoenix folk punks Andrew Jackson Jihad (who they played NYC with in January). Cheap Girls' last tour didn't hit NYC, but this one will on June 14 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/18) at noon.

After the run with Cheap Girls, AJJ head out on a second leg of dates with Hard Girls. Opening the whole tour is AJJ's Phoenix neighbors Dogbreth, who also go on a short western US tour with Waxahatchee this week. All dates are listed below.

Both Cheap Girls and Andrew Jackson Jihad have new albums coming out this year. As mentioned, Cheap Girls will release Famous Graves on May 13 via Xtra Mile. You can stream two of its tracks, "Knock Me Over" and "Man In Question" (ft. Craig Finn), below.

AJJ release their new album, Christmas Island, on May 6 via their new label home of SideOneDummy, which follows 2011's Knife Man LP on Asian Man. The new record was produced by John Congleton, who's been having a killer 2014, also helming the new Swans, Cloud Nothings, Angel Olsen, and St. Vincent albums this year. You can listen to its single "Children of God" below. If you...


A Sunny Day In Glasgow Crushin
Apr 15, 2014 1:31pm | StereoGum

After a prolonged absence, Philly dream-gloop beauty-conjurers a Sunny Day In Glasgow came shimmering back earlier this year with the new song “In Love With Useless (The Timeless Geometry In The Tradition Of Passing).” There was also talk of a new album, and now we know the details of said album. As summer begins, they’ll give us Sea When Absent, their first album in four years. First single “Crushin’,’ paradoxically, has nothing to do with the Fat Boys. But it does boast heavy amounts of, um, atmosphere? Does that work? That doesn’t really work. The song is a very pretty collection of sighs and beeps and pleasant keyboard tones, and you can hear it, and check out the album’s tracklist, below.
