Watch the first trailer for Point Break remake
May 26, 2015 7:23pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Warner Bros. has shared the first trailer for its upcoming remake of the action cult classic Point Break.

The film puts its own twist on the 1991 original, which saw FBI Agent Johnny Utah (Keanue Reeves) infiltrating a group of surfers led by Bodhi (Patrick Swayze) who are hooked on the rush of bank robberies. In this new version, Luke Bracy plays Utah and Edgar Ramirez fills the role of Bodhi, leader of a group of extreme athletes who have a far larger goal in mind for their international crime spree.

Point Break also stars Ray Winstone as Angelo Pappas and Teresa Palmer as Tyler Endicott, characters portrayed respectively by Gary Busey and Lori Petty in the original. Directed by Ericson Core (Invincible) from a script by Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium, the recent Total Recall remake), the movie hits theaters on December 25th. Watch the trailer below.

Pixies, TV on the Radio & John Grant played Stone Pony Summer Stage (pics, setlist)

[TV on the Radio] came out just after 7 and did an approximately 1-hour set that, by necessity, left out a couple of my favorites but covered all the major bases. "Wolf Like Me" is still an amazing track as are "Young Liars," "Golden Age," "DLZ," and "Dancing Choose." Newer songs like "Happy Idiot" and "Could You" had some of the younger people around us jumping. Vocalist Tunde Adebimpe and guitarist Kyp Malone thanked The Pixies several times and made it a point to mention how wonderful it was for all of us to be in the same place together. That was kind of cool.

...I haven't really heard Indie Cindy, last year's return from the [Pixies'] 23-year recording hiatus. It was less than well-received (Pitchfork famously gave it a 1.0 out of 10.), and I may have fallen for the anti-hype a bit. The band interspersed tracks from that record -- "Magdalena 318," "Indie Cindy," "Bagboy," "Silver Snail," "Snakes" -- throughout the set, and they fit in pretty seamlessly. I remember liking "Bagboy" when it came out as a single, especially the Kim-like backing vocals.

Speaking of Kim: Yeah, I felt her absence (and the absence of "Gigantic" from the set). [Paz] Lenchantin did a great job throughout, though, on bass and backing vocals. She's a bit more animated than the rest of the band and has that bass player stalk / runway walk thing totally down. [CoolDad Music]

Föllakzoid / SQÜRL @ Rough Trade 5/23/2015

Chilean psych band Föllakzoid wrapped up their North American tour over the weekend, playing NYC at Rough Trade on Saturday (5/23). The band ride motorik, krautrock grooves with extended psychedelic passages and their live show (which I caught at Austin's Levitation) was some trip. The music by opening band, SQÜRL, may not be known by that many, but more probably recognize the snowy, shock of a coif on their vocalist/guitarist as that of famed indie filmmaker (and Follakzoid's Sacred Bones labelmate) Jim Jarmusch. It was a double umlaut kind of night. Pictures continue below.

Sleater-Kinney / Action Bronson / New Pornos / Angel Olsen @ Sasquatch 5/22/2015

Rain fell in distant hills on either side of the venue as rapper Action Bronson kicked off the late evening sets at the Bigfoot Stage, puppeteering the crowd with bristling confidence and a rap game to back it up. He called for middle fingers in the air - thousands complied.

The wind picked up at the Yeti Stage as Angel Olsen and her band did their sound check. Two guitars onstage toppled over with a sudden gust, their respective musicians rushing to pick them up, each laughing nervously as backstage tarps began to flap chaotically. - [The Oregonean]

The 2015 Sasquatch Festival happened over Memorial Day Weekend (May 22 - 25) at The Gorge in Quincy, WA. The first day (5/22) featured sets from Sleater-Kinney, Little Dragon, Action Bronson, Angel Olsen, The New Pornographers, Thunderpussy (featuring members of Deerhunter, La Luz and more) and more. Pictures from Day 1 are in this post.

Stay tuned for pics from the rest of Saquatch 2015. Meanwhile, more of day 1 below...

Boosie Badazz released his new album, playing NYC tonight
May 26, 2015 5:22pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Talk to me about your recording process in prison. How did you do that?
Well it was all kind of ways. I was getting tape recorders, I was getting the guards to sneak me in iPhones. Whatever I had to do!

So you're recording on some burners too and sending them out!
Yup! Sometimes you've got to break the rules to make money, that's just plain and simple. And that's what I was doing! I'm not going to say I went to jail and did right. I'm not going to say that, because I was going through a lot and I needed to be high half the time. I was going through a lot, but it made me value life more. It made me value my career more. It smartened me up. I was doing stupid stuff out there. Even though all these murders and all this was bogus, I was doing stupid stuff to lead people on as far as flashing guns every time you see me on DVDs. You know, that was stupid ass shit! Now I look at it like, "Damn, why was I doing that?" But it was fun then. But once they stack a lot of that against you, once you get in some trouble, that'll make people look at you like, "Hey, he's far from a saint!" [Noisey]

Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz (fka Lil Boosie) released Touch Down 2 Cause Hell, his first album in five years and first since being released from prison, this week. It's got features from T.I., Jeezy, Rick Ross, Young Thug, Rich Homie Quan, J. Cole, and the whole thing can be streamed below. Video for its track "Ha...

Brazilian tropicalia artist Marcos Valle playing weeklong run at NYC's Birdland with Carlos Lyra
May 26, 2015 5:10pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

If you watched the 2014 World Cup, chances are you saw a Southern Comfort commercial titled "Dance" which featured multiple versions of actor Onosky Ujorha boogieing to Marcus Valle's 1983 tropicalia/disco single "Estrellar." And maybe you, like I did, became a little obsessed with "Estrellar" and went on Discogs wanting to buy Valle's self-titled album the song is from (that's it above), only to learn it fetches for $100 on vinyl. Maybe that was just me. If you missed that commercial or that song, videos for both (and some other songs to check out) are below.

Valle, who's been a big name in the Brazilian music scene since the early '60s, is in NYC this week playing NYC's Birdland tonight through Saturday (May 27 - 30). The show, titled "Bossabrasil," is with Carlos Lyra and there are 8:30 PM and 11:30 PM shows each night. Tickets are on sale, though for tonight you'll need to call the box office to reserve.

Record Store Day to expand with weekly event Vinyl Tuesday
May 26, 2015 4:45pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Despite what Neil Young says, vinyl records are alive, well, and look as though they’re here to stay for the foreseeable future. In fact, in 2014 nearly eight million records were purchased, an almost 50% increase in sales from the previous year. Capitalizing on the format’s renaissance, the organizers behind Record Store Day have announced that they’ll be expanding their reach with a new weekly program called Vinyl Tuesday.

Modeled on the biannual Record Store Day extravaganza, the new event will offer fans the opportunity to snag exclusives each and every week from their favorite independent record shops (note: not Urban Outfitters). For reference, April’s installment of RSD (led by the one and only Dave Grohl) featured unique selections from the likes of Foo Fighters, Father John Misty, Ryan Adams, Florence and the Machine, and Future Islands.

According to a press release, Vinyl Tuesday will include five different kinds of releases: “catalog releases, commercial and promotional releases, releases made specifically for the Record Store Day indie community, vinyl editions of albums that were previously released on CD and digitally, and exclusive vinyl releases that drop before their digital editions.”

An official launch date for Vinyl Tuesday has yet to be confirmed, but the new affair will no doubt calm the nerves of those music lovers who were sad to see the global album release date pushed from Tue...

Premature Evaluation: A$AP Rocky At.Long.Last.A$AP
May 26, 2015 4:20pm | StereoGum
The last voice we hear on At.Long.Last.A$AP, the new A$AP Rocky album, doesn't belong to Rocky. Instead, it's a classic Dame Dash-style rant from Rocky's aesthetic mentor A$AP Yams: "These tackass motherfuckers be all up in the pictures, wearin' all types of red and green stripes, overaccessorizing out this motherfucker!"

Death cancel Irving Plaza show, now playing Studio at Webster Hall w/ Obnox (updated tour dates)

photo: Death at Burgerama 2014 (more by Debi Del Grande)

Detroit protopunk legends Death have an upcoming NYC show that was set to happen May 30 at Irving Plaza, but it's now been moved to the more up-close-and-personal Studio at Webster Hall (5/30). Also, in place of the original support lineup (Unlocking the Truth, Ache, Shitkill) will be the soulful garage rocker Obnox, which is a pretty great double bill. Tickets for Webster are on sale now. Refunds for Irving are available.

Death were also to have played Philadelphia's Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia on May 29 but that show has also been canceled. They will also play Washington, DC and Cambridge, MA on this run, however. All dates are listed, along with a live Death video, below...

Watch: Shopping
May 26, 2015 4:14pm | CMJ


Drummers who can sing and play at the same time never cease to amaze. And that changes not a whit with this live, in-studio video released today by London jitter-pop trio, Shopping.

The band pulls the trick of going two-thirds through as an airy, subtly propulsive, approachable post-punk tune, the guitar line skipping through the simple beat while girl/guy vocals jab. It’s one of those songs whose effect is affected as much by the emptiness around the music as the music itself. Then the snare gets louder, vocals more active, and all the while there’s that drummer singing, with a slight gruff at the bottom, offering a little more sad emotion than most neo-post-punk usually allows. And not to mention that he keeps a tricky beat through this whole thing?

Filmed at and for 4eyes TV, it’s a teaser of sorts for the band’s American debut, Consumer Complaints, out today on FatCat.

It's been a triumphant few weeks for Jay Pollard of Toronto DIY venue Geary Lane and promotion co Invocation TO: after a spell of doom and gloom amid zoning issues plaguing music venues on Geary Avenue, Pollard got word that his new Sound Séance music and arts festival (featuring Suuns & Jerusalem in My Heart, Wrekmeister Harmonies, and Expo 70, among many others) would be permitted by the city to go ahead at the Geary Lane space as planned, including all planned outdoor elements, DJs, and art installations.

Pollard is celebrating in true DIY style with a new limited edition cassette compilation that will sample many of the the eclectic artists who performed at Geary Lane during its first year. Artists on the Invocation Vol.I comp will include Blunt Chunks, Fresh Snow, Black Walls, Loom, Deep Frontier (Mimico), Silver Pools, Manticore, M.Muccim, Moon McMullen, Hexzuul and Cetacea.

It also includes the debut of No Sweat, a new collaborative project between Julie Reich (Bile Sister, Dohn Valley) and Zoe Solomon (Fresh Flesh). Stream and download "Brothtalk," the debut track from the Invocation Vol. I comp and the first public No Sweat track ever, below:

To get your hands on all the exclusive tracks (none of these songs have ever been released before, grippers), you'll have to wait until the Sound Séance festival (June 12 to 14: the tape officially drops June 13) to grab one of on...

Failure add Long Island to tour, share part 3 of studio diary
May 26, 2015 4:04pm | Brooklyn Vegan

photos by Priscilla Scott

Last week, Failure announced summer tour dates, though they didn't include any in or around NYC. Now they've updated their schedule to include a Long Island show happening July 18 at The Space at Westbury. There's still a gap between that and their Nashville show on 7/21, so maybe NYC proper will still be added? Meanwhile, Long Island tickets go on sale Friday (5/29) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.

Failure are also now on part 3 of their studio diary for The Heart Is A Monster, their first album in 19 years. This part's written by drummer Kellii Scott, and can be read below. Read part 1 HERE and part 2 HERE. The Heart Is A Monster is due June 30 via INresidence and can be pre-ordered now.
