Video Premiere: Soupcans Siamese Brutality
Nov 23, 2015 11:21am | CMJ
Toronto slug punks Soupcans rip off fuzz-caked riff scabs all over on their recently unleashed debut LP, Good Feelings (Telephone Explosion). Fittingly, on this new vid clip for “Siamese Brutality,” director Winston Hacking offers up an equally sliced and jarring collage art. “The video,” says Hacking, “is made up of a ton of collages I […]

Martin Courtney played 'Many Moons' with a string section, covered Neil Young & Bunnymen @ National Sawdust (pics)

Martin Courtney dropped his terrific solo album Many Moons, last month but didn't officially celebrate till Friday (11/20) with a record release show at new Williamsburg venue National Sawdust. The album was played in full and for the occasion, Courtney and his ace band (which includes Woods' Jarvis Taveniere and Doug Keith of Sharon Van Etten's band) were joined for part of the show by a string section. That certainly made songs like "Foto," "Before We Begin" and "Vestiges" all the more lush and they even brought out a flautist for Many Moons title track. Speaking of many moons, they took that theme literally with the night's chosen covers of Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" and Echo & The Bunnymen's "The Killing Moon."
Opening was J.R. Bohannon, who you may know
from his project Ancient Ocean or as a member of Torres' band. Here
he played with a full band that included The Clean's Hamish
Kilgour on drums. Pictures from his set, and more of
Martin Courtney's, below...

Michael Biehn opens up about Neill Blomkamps postponed Aliens sequel
Nov 23, 2015 10:52am | Cosequence Of Sound
Now that Neill Blomkamps Aliens sequel has been postponed, and probably indefinitely, little gooey details are starting to percolate. This time around, it’s Michael Biehn, aka Corporal Dwayne Hicks, with the goods. Remember: short, controlled bursts of anger and disappointment.
While speaking with Icons of Fright, the 59-year-old actor confirmed bits and pieces of the story (“The basic idea is acting like Alien 3 and [Resurrection] never existed”) and further digressed on why the studio likely wouldn’t want it to interfere with Ridley Scott’s forthcoming prequel, Alien: Covenant.
“Im sure that he and Fox both dont want that and Neills movie to come out right next to each other, because theyre kind of two different worlds,” he admitted, “with Aliens taking place thousands of years later, which is how they explained it all to me, but at the same time, they want to give them a similar feel. I know theyre putting the brakes on Neills movie just for a little while, but I really think that it would be embarrassing to Ridley and Fox and Sigourney [Weaver] if they just didnt make the movie.”
Embarrassing? Yes. Out of the question? No. However, judging from what Biehn later shared about Blomkamp’s proposed storyline, and given Hollywood’s feeding frenzy for soluble franchises, there might actually be a chance this still happens:...
Okkervil River's three-night run of 'Black Sheep Boy' at Bowery Ballroom is underway, wrapping up tonight (night 2 pics)

Okkervil River are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their best album Black Sheep Boy with a reissue (due 12/4 via Jagjaguwar) and a tour that has them playing the album in full. They're currently in the midst of a three-night run at NYC's Bowery Ballroom that wraps up tonight (11/23). We caught last night's show.
Will Sheff opened with a few solo acoustic versions of songs that came out before Black Sheep Boy and talked a bit about their early days, and then the rest of the band came out to perform the album front to back. These shows were already going to be special, but it got even more special when Black Sheep Boy era member (and Shearwater frontman) Jonathan Meiburg joined them on "Black" and stayed for the rest of the set. Plus for the next song ("Get Big"), Will's girlfriend and frequent collaborator Beth Wawerna of Bird of Youth joined them on harmonies and stayed for several others too. They played the album exactly the way you'd want to hear it, with all the beauty and raggedy edges it has on record. Nostalgia for this type of thing has been hitting pretty hard lately (or hitting me, at least). Enough time has passed and "indie" has gone through enough changes that I kinda miss the era when that g...
listen to Jarvis Cocker's tribute to Paris (where he lives) following terrorists attacks
Nov 23, 2015 10:39am | Brooklyn Vegan

Jarvis Cocker's BBC 6 music show "Sunday Service" this week included a tribute to Paris which is where he has lived for the last few years. The spoken-word piece, titled "Friday the 13th, 2015," is his response to the November 13 attack. It recounts that night and next two days, and includes a poem titled "I Love You," with music by Serafina Steer (who he's collaborated with before). You can hear it at the 1:00 mark, but the whole show (which features a number of French pop classics as is basically a tribute to Paris), is very good.
Within the piece, a bit of news: Jarvis mentions "listening to some new songs I've recorded."

Nickelodeon is reviving Hey Arnold! for new TV movie
Nov 23, 2015 10:37am | Cosequence Of Sound
Nickelodeon is reviving one of its tentpole franchises for a new TV movie. As Variety reports, the network has green-lit plans for a film based on Hey Arnold!, the animated series about a fourth-grader with a football-shaped head who lives in New York City with his grandparents.
Hey Arnold! originally ran between 1996 and 2004 as an episodic series. Creator Craig Barlett will return to pen the forthcoming movie, promising a storyline “that picks up where the original series ended and resolves unanswered plotlinesincluding the whereabouts of Arnolds parents, long missing from the program.”
The revival of Hey Arnold! is part of Nickelodeon’s “emphasis on wringing new value” out of its extensive archives, notes Variety, and there are plans for more reboots in the near future. That includes live-action series, which Variety speculates could include Clarissa Explains It All. Mitchell Kreigman, the creator of Clarissa, recently published a new book, Things I Cant Explain, chronicling the character’s life as a young adult in the big city.
Get nostalgic and revisit a past episode of Hey Arnold! below.
Dev09 You Made Me Video
Nov 23, 2015 10:26am | StereoGum
Last month, we posted "You Made Me," an excellent piece of sneery, minimal club-pop from Dev09, an 18-year-old singer who comes from South Bend, Indiana. After we posted it, Stelios Phili, the A$AP Ferg collaborator who produced the track, emailed me and told me that Brett Haley, director of the buzzed-about new movie … More »
Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy working on memoir

From a painkiller addiction, to having his band’s now-seminal album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot initially rejected, to his wife’s cancer diagnosis, the life of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy has been one heck of a story. Now, the singer-songwriter is set to recount the tale in a new memoir.
According to Rolling Stone, Dutton, a branch of Penguin Random House, has won a bidding war to release Tweedy’s memoir. Though the book has no title or release date, The Associated Press reports that Dutton paid upwards of six figures for the rights to release the tome, which is described as “funny, disarming, and honest.”
“I have stories to tell,” Tweedy told RS, “and I’d like for this book to be a combination of those stories about my experiences, and maybe a window into one person’s creative process, as well as some of what I’ve seen working with other artists in my current and former bands, in the studio, on the road, in my basement with my sons, and more.”
The musician may just touch on Wilco’s move from Reprise Records to Nonesuch in the early aughts, his work with his son Spencer as Tweedy, his long-standing relationship with Mavis Staples, and more. Stay tuned for any more official news on the impending release.

Club 8 released new album 'Pleasure' (listen ++ watch the video for "Skin")
Nov 23, 2015 10:04am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Swedish duo Club 8 released their new album, Pleasure, last week via Labrador. (Order yours.) It's very much a late night kind of record, synthwave-style disco with the icy coo of singer Karolina Komstedt completing things. The video for single "Skin" also fits this mood perfectly with shots of driving in the city after dark, lonely limos and clubs, and finally back home where things take a suprising turn. That video premieres in this post and you can watch below.
You can also listen to the whole album, even if you don't have a sweet Bang & Olufsen system like Club 8 do in the photo above, via a stream, below...

Stream Moving Mountains & Prawns Split (Stereogum Premiere)
Nov 23, 2015 9:57am | StereoGum
Taken side by side, Moving Mountains and Prawn highlight each other's strengths, and make a compelling argument that they're best taken together, and on their own. That's what good splits are supposed to do, and this is a very good split. We've already heard Mov Mou's "Deathless" and Prawn's "Seas," and the other … More »
Der Panther signed to Primavera Sound's label for new album 'Lux' (watch a new video), playing NYC
Nov 23, 2015 9:49am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
Der Panther recently relocated from Madrid to NYC, and they're also the latest artist to sign to the always-amazing Barcelona festival Primavera Sound's label. Their first release for the label will be the seven-track album Lux on May 18, and we've got the premiere of the video for "Gecko" off that album. It's a low-key, psychedelic electronic pop song and the very trippy video suits it perfectly. Check it out below.
According to the label, "the duo is intent on not appearing in person and during their live acts they perform inside a cube onto which they project images." You can see them do that in their new hometown on Saturday (11/28) at The Gateway (1272 Broadway in Brooklyn) with Gggasmess and Vasco Ispirian. It's a free show and the flyer is below. It's their only date at the moment.
