White Fence rearranges haunted furniture in Chairs In The Dark video
Jul 23, 2014 12:58pm | Chart Attack

You've heard White Fence's For The Recently Found Innocent. Now Tim Presley's garage rock project has a video for "Chairs In The Dark," a not-so-surreal excursion once you figure out the strange black & white imagery is actually following the gently moaned lyrics. That means onions get hacked, a "pretty girl" is introduced, plus a lot of chair shots. Modest and affecting.

White Fence's new album For The Recently Found Innocent is out now via Drag City.

Duran Duran are suing their fan club for $40,000
Jul 23, 2014 12:50pm | Cosequence Of Sound

As it turns out, fan clubs arent necessarily full of sappy teenagers longingly writing letters to rock stars in hopes they might one day marry them or become their new BFFs. (Please get back to me, Rick Springfield.) Some are big business, with a sizable number of companies across the globe whose sole responsibility is to create additional revenue streams for the actual artist.

The Chicago-based Worldwide Fan Clubs is just one of these companies, and until recently they counted Duran Duran among their list of satisfied clients. Only now, the 80s pop icons have sued WFC for failing to deliver several contractually-obligated payments. I hear thousands of adolescent hearts shattering in every corner of the world.

As The Chicago Sun-Times reports, Duran Duran filed a lawsuit earlier this week in the amount of $40,000. According to the suit, Duran Duran and WFC entered into an agreement in 2010, where the latter would create and manage the bands global fan club.

As part of the deal, WFC would be responsible for the sales and inventory of Durans merchandise catalog, collecting membership fees, and maintaining accounting records, all while splitting the profits 75-25 in favor of Duran. The groups attorneys allege that WFC never kept accurate financial records and have yet to deliver revenue payments.

So, in case youre concerned, just remember: Duran Duran still loves their ac...

Joel Gion of Brian Jonestown Massacre releasing LP w/ his solo band (streams); BJM released a new album too
Jul 23, 2014 12:49pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

You may know Joel Gion as the mutton-chopped tambourine player in Brian Jonestown Massacre whose sense of humor and wry asides made him a scene-stealer in BMJ doc DiG!. (You may also know him from that one episode of Gilmore Girls.) Joel is still with the BJM but he's got a solo album, Apple Bonkers, out on August 19 via The Reverberation Appreciation Society.

If you're a Jonestown follower, you might recognize some of the people who play on the album: Matt Hollywood, Daniel Allaire, Miranda Lee Richards, Pete Holstrom (to name a few). Says Joel of the album:

With all the BJM members now living  so spread out across the world, I found myself increasingly missing the album making process. This feeling of disconnect is what kick started me into exploring my own song writing process and turned out to be a hugely important piece of self discovery. No more time for my beloved laziness. So I made my own music with a with bunch of friends in the studio coming and going and having a great time creating. I think a lot of people are going to be surprised by this album.
With the musicians involved, it's no surprise that sonically it's firmly in the BJM's psychedelic '60s wheelhouse, but this is pretty together stuff and Gion has more up his sleeve than a tambourine. (He's not a bad singer, either, if you were wondering.) Hear for yourself, we've...

Watch Elizabeth Olsen Cover Rilo Kiley In A Clip From Very Good Girls
Jul 23, 2014 12:49pm | StereoGum

Jenny Lewis scored the movie Very Good Girls, which comes out in theaters in a few days, and Rilo Kiley’s “Go Ahead” is used in a scene where Elizabeth Olsen performs the song at an open-mic. The film is the directorial debut of Oscar-nominated screenwriter Naomi Foner, Lewis’ friend and mother of Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The film also stars Dakota Fanning, Boyd Holbrook, Demi Moore, Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Barkin, Clark Gregg, Kiernan Shipka, and Peter Sarsgaard. Watch a clip of Olsen singing the Take Offs And Landings track below.


TOPS Way To Be Loved
Jul 23, 2014 12:47pm | StereoGum

As I said when we recently premiered “Sleeptalker,” TOPS have a very different sound than the one typically associated with Arbutus Records, but they still deliver smolderingly romantic songs similar to their labelmates. Their newest, “Way To Be Loved,” is filled with crisp, modest guitar riffs, not-so-modest bass lines, and Jane Penny’s soft but firm vocals. It’s a fantastic statement of purpose for an album opener — and the album it kicks off looks to be another great addition to the label’s rich catalog. Listen below.

Nardwuar Got Yung Lean To Smile
Jul 23, 2014 12:12pm | StereoGum

Yung Lean — internet-beloved #sadboy, bucket-hat wearer, Arizona Iced Tea enthusiast, and teenaged Swedish rapper — has now joined the hallowed ranks of artists interviewed by Nardwuar The Human Serviette. Although a recent New Yorker profile insisted that Yung Lean and the Sad Boys self-consciously try to keep up melancholic appearances, Nardwuar manages to make them all crack up within the first minute of the interview (by singing happy birthday in Swedish, in case you were wondering). Maybe Yung Lean’s crushing emotional despair is no match for Nardwuar’s ridiculousness, or maybe he was just in a good mood because it was his 18th birthday. Either way, it’s a fun interview, and you can watch it below.


Duran Duran Are Suing Their Fan Club
Jul 23, 2014 12:11pm | StereoGum

Apparently there are companies dedicated to managing and monetizing fan clubs for celebrities, and one of them called Worldwide Fan Clubs once counted Duran Duran among its clients. Not anymore; The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the new wave legends are suing the Glenview, Illinois-based company for $40,000 and claiming that Worldwide Fan Clubs failed to deliver their contractually guaranteed payments. Further details:


Listen: Shura Just Once
Jul 23, 2014 11:55am | CMJ

London-by-way-of-Moscow singer Shura dropped her debut single Touch way back in February. It was a great, shoulder pad-free, ’80s-style, sashaying synth jam and I was very excited to hear more. Six months of waiting later, here we are with single number two.

Just Once is a more delicate track, with breathier vocals, in-the-shadows percussion, a slick guitar interlude and lines like, “If you get my name wrong, I won’t get pissed off/cause I wish I was somebody else.” No word yet on a full length. Listen below.

The post Listen: Shura – “Just Once” appeared first on CMJ.

RAPID FIRE: Le1f really wants a purple Range Rover
Jul 23, 2014 11:38am | Chart Attack
Our video series Rapid Fire gets our favourite artists to answer hard-hitting questions from their childhood, imagination, and the future, as fast as they can before our non-existent timer runs out.

You know what they say, laughter is the best medicine. Now would be an appropriate time for me to insert a Tumblr photo with bokeh'd lights overlaid on a photo of high-waisted denim short-wearing teenagers laughing, and cursive text that reads "If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane," attributed to Robert Frost. But I won't.

Khalif Diouf, better known as Le1f, is a New York based rapper you should be listening to. He hates birthdays, loves mushrooms and really wants a purple Range Rover  no, really wants a Purple Range Rover  as we discovered in this episode of Rapid Fire. We learned a lot about Le1f in a really short amount of time and now you can too.

Le1f's new EP Hey is available on iTunes through Terrible Records. Listen to it below.

David Lynch launches womens clothing line
Jul 23, 2014 11:35am | Cosequence Of Sound

Avid collector of all things David Lynch? In search of more Lynch-ian attire for when you enjoy your 47th viewing of Mulholland Drive? Or maybe you just want some damn cool Lynch-approved threads? Either way, youre in luck.

In hopes of promoting Transcendental Meditation, the surrealist filmmaker has launched his very own clothing line for women featuring leggings, shorts, bras, and t-shirts. The series is a collaboration between the David Lynch Foundation and Live The Process, which is described as “a guide to wellness and holistic health from a curated group of experts in Beauty, Fitness, Meditation, Nutrition, Energy Therapies and Quantum Physics, as seen through a modernist lens.” Neat.

The tamely-designed sportswear come at a hefty price ($105 for a bra? $170 for leggings?), but a portion of the proceeds will be donated to support victims of abuse, so one cant feel too guilty about maxing out the credit card.

Perhaps after meditating in said outfits, you can unwind with a nice cup of David Lynch coffee and a couple spins of The Big Dream? Might as well go all out, super-fans.

For more information on the collection, check out Live The Process.

Below, revisit the Moby-directed video for “The Big Dream”:

Hessismore releasing new album (stream a track), celebrating with five-night NYC run ++ other dates
Jul 23, 2014 11:26am | Brooklyn Vegan

Mikkel Hess has been making music as Hess is More for a while now and is set to release a new album next month. With it comes a typographic shift (or perhaps just a broken space-bar on his keyboard), changing the name of his group to Hessismore and the album, due August 19, is titled Myheadisaballroom / Whoneedsaplaceanyway. That's the cover art above. Where his previous releases were more of a solo venture, the new LP was made with a steady band that's been gigging pretty regularly over the last couple years, and was recorded by Andrew Raposo (Midnight Magic, Hercules & Love Affair). We've got the premiere of the LP's groovy "Bearsong" in this post.

To celebrate the new album, the eight-piece Hessismore ensemble will perform five nights at East Village club Nublu from August 18 - 22. Tickets are on sale now. If you've never seen their live show -- tight, jazzy, krauty disco -- it's highly recommended.

Hessismore have a few other dates lined up as well, including the Wassaic Project festival in Wassaic, NY next weekend (Aug 1). All are listed, along with the new song stream, album tracklist / trailer and a live video, below...
