Ween's Claude Coleman Jr releasing a new Amandla album (stream a track)
Sep 30, 2014 8:15am | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
Former Ween drummer Claude Coleman Jr (who's also worked with Eagles of Death Metal, Butthole Surfers' Jeff Pinkus, John Medeski and more) is set to release a new album with his solo band Amandla later this year. It's called Laughing Hearts and follows his 2006 sophomore album The Full Catastrophe. Its newest single, the title track, pulls a bit from classic soul, jazz guitar and alternative rock, the kind of diverse mix you probably expect from a Ween member. It premieres here and can be streamed below. Live dates are TBA too, so stay tuned to see if he hits NYC.
Meanwhile, his former bandmate Geen Ween (or Aaron Freeman) will be in NYC this week when his band FREEMAN's tour hits Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (10/4) with Arc Iris. Tickets for that show are still available.
The Dean Ween Group are also touring, hitting NJ and NYC right around Halloween time.

U2 Quietly Release Songs Of Innocence Vinyl Early So They Can Win All The Grammys
Sep 30, 2014 8:10am | StereoGum
After noisily spamming your iTunes account with Songs Of Innocence, their turgid chore of a new album, U2 have quietly slid a few vinyl copies of the LP to a few independent retailers, just in time to qualify for next year’s Grammys. The album’s official white-vinyl release isn’t until 10/14, but the fan site @U2 reports that a few black-vinyl copies showed up for sale at stores like Amoeba and Looney Tunes. According to Grammy rules, an album has to be sold commercially before 9/30 to qualify for the next year’s awards, and the album’s free iTunes release wasn’t enough to qualify, so they had to get a few of those physical copies out there on time. Ethically, this isn’t much different from showing a movie in two theaters a couple of days before New Years to get it out there in time for Oscar season. They’re gaming the system, but it’s not like there’s anything wrong with their tactics, and a few people will get collectors-editions copies that they can flip on Ebay for some extra money. But if anyone actually hands any Grammys to that boring, boring album, we’re going to have to burn the whole system down.
Dean Ween Group touring, playing NY/NJ around Halloween
Sep 30, 2014 8:07am | Brooklyn Vegan
The Dean Ween Group, who toured opening for Primus earlier this year, are now set to hit the road on their own for a short East Coast tour this fall. The fall comes to the NYC-area around Halloween time, hitting Asbury Park on October 30 at The Stone Pony and Brooklyn on November 1 at Brooklyn Bowl but they currently have no show scheduled for Halloween proper. (Primus on the other hand, are playing NYC on Halloween.) Tickets for the NJ and NYC shows are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Meanwhile, Gene Ween's band FREEMAN are touring too and hitting NYC this Saturday (10/4) at Bowery Ballroom with Arc Iris (tickets).

Watch The Inherent Vice Trailer Narrated By Joanna Newsom
Sep 30, 2014 7:56am | StereoGum
We’ve known for a while that Joanna Newsom was going to play a role in the film adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice, but it was only last week that we found out that she would narrate the whole thing. For a novel as densely plotted as Pynchon’s, the narrator will presumably play an important role in making sure the book translates well to screen. She certainly has a large presence in the trailer, which was released online yesterday. The film also stars Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, and Reese Witherspoon, and the film is being scored by Jonny Greenwood. The Paul Thomas Anderson-directed movie will have a wide release in December, but it’s having its world premiere at the New York Film Festival next weekend. Watch the trailer below.

Stream Princes two new albums: ART OFFICIAL AGE and PLECTRUMELECTRUM
Sep 30, 2014 7:39am | Cosequence Of Sound
R&B and soul phenom Prince returns this week with not one, but two new albums. ART OFFICIAL AGE marks the Purple One’s 34th solo effort, while PLECTRUMELECTRUM serves as the debut LP from his new band, 3rdEyeGirl.
ART OFFICIAL AGE follows up 2010’s 20TEN, marking the longest gap between records in Prince’s discography. A press release described the 13-track album as a contemporary concoction of soul, R&B and funk.” It also called the songs’ melodies “immediate and prominent as ever and Princes vocals are rich and solid, taking full advantage of his vocal range with decidedly, seductive lyrics.
PLECTRUMELECTRUM boasts 12 tracks, which were recorded live and to analog tape. Much of the material was road-tested in front of audiences during the band’s tour of the UK earlier this year. A press release describes the album as “an electrifying funk-rock statement.”
In an interview with Mojo, Prince discussed the recording sessions and inspiration for the new tracks. We recorded it in Bryan Ferrys studio in London,” he said, “after a night of partying for which the Cocteau Twins was the soundtrack. You cant understand the words of Cocteau Twins songs but their harmonies put you in a dreamlike state.
ART OFFICIAL AGE Tracklist:
TV On The Radio Happy Idiot Video (Feat. Paul Reubens)
Sep 30, 2014 7:34am | StereoGum
At this point, Funny Or Die is debuting music videos that aren’t even trying to be funny — and that’s fine, as long as they’re good videos. TV On The Radio’s new one for “Happy Idiot,” the first single from their much-anticipated new album Seeds, is a good one. The clip stars Paul Reubens, better known to the entire civilized world as Pee-Wee Herman, as a race car driver who sees visions while practicing his craft on an abandoned desert raceway. The Doctor Who/Guardians Of The Galaxy actress Karen Gillan appears as an apparition that appears to Reubens, and the band are in there, too, as white-suited phantoms. Danny Jelinek directed the video, and onetime cable-access phenom Jake Fogelnest wrote it. Below, watch the video and read some words about it from TVOTR frontman Tunde Adebimpe.

Hear two previously unreleased demos from Broadcasts classic 2005 album Tender Buttons
Sep 30, 2014 7:13am | Fact Magazine
Bandmate marks the Broadcast singer’s birthday.
Trish Keenan would have turned 46 this week, and to mark the sad occasion her bandmate and partner James Cargirll has shared two demos from the recording of the band’s widely adored 2005 album Tender Buttons.
Hear early versions of ‘Goodbye Girls’ and ‘Tears In The Typing Pool’, both made in 2004, below. As Self-Titled Mag points out, perhaps the archival gems are a sign of a reissue campaign on the way? That would certainly be welcome.
Last year, Cargill spoke to FACT about Broadcast’s final project, a stunning score for Peter Strickland’s audiophile horror flick Berberian Sound Studio.
