Marilyn Manson
Apr 23, 2015 1:32pm | StereoGum
With the release of his latest album, Marilyn Manson's creative team took audiophilia to a new level. When The Pale Emperor dropped, it was made available in the typical mp3 and vinyl formats and, in a confounding move, as a PlayStation disc. There was no hidden Manson-themed video game to be found on the … More »

Eternal Summers share "Together or Alone" video + 'Gold and Stone' title track, playing Cake Shop before Popfest (dates)
Apr 23, 2015 1:13pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Eternal Summers have made a video for their single "Together or Alone" which is from their fourth album, Gold and Stone, which is out June 2 via Kanine. Japhy Riddle directed the stop-motion animated clip about a lonely honey badger who looks to the stars every night. It's lovely short and you can watch it below. That song is one of the adrenalized songs on Gold and Stone, but more indicative of the dreamier direction Eternal Summers have taken this time is its shimmering title track which recalls bands like The Sundays or even "Linger"-era Cranberries. It's a natural fit for the band and when the "oooooh" chorus hits the song really lifts off. The whole album is full of songs like that and is up there with Correct Behavior as the best thing they've done yet. Listen to "Gold and Stone" below.

The band are currently on tour with Turbo Fruits and shortly after those dates will be in Brooklyn at Littlefield on May 31, which is the 2015 NYC Popfest finale with Club 8, #Poundsign#, Lunchbox, Seabirds, Palms on Fire, Starry Eyed Cadet, and Sapphire Mansions. Tickets are still available. Eternal Summers will be in the city before that, playing Cake Shop on May 8 which is part of the venue's 10th anniversary month. Full lineup (and details on what else Cake Shop has in store) are still TBA. All Eternal Summer...


CMJ Chart Recap: April 21, 2015

In Chart Recap we take a look at what’s happening on the CMJ charts each week. Check out the CMJ Radio 200 top 20 for the week. CMJ NMR Subscribers can login to view the complete charts.

We thought it was a tight race a few weeks ago between Dan Deacon and Father John Misty, but that was nothing compared to the competition between Courtney Barnett and Modest Mouse this week.

While Modest Mouse came out on top in number of stations reporting them on their charts and overall No. 1 positions on charts, in the end Courtney Barnett pulled ahead by a minute fraction to top the charts for a second week. Sufjan Stevens also had more stations behind him this week than did Courtney Barnett, but remained in No. 3. This tight competition will likely continue into next week, so we

Chvrches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry responds to online threats, says
Apr 23, 2015 12:46pm | Fact Magazine

“Bring it on, motherfuckers. Let’s see who blinks first.”

In the past Lauren Mayberry from Chvrches has been vocal about the abusive messages and rape threats she receives constantly including a 2013 op-ed for the Guardian. In a new post, she makes clear that while none of that has stopped the stream of threatening messages, she won’t stand for it anymore.

Mayberry took to Twitter and Instagram to share one of the private messages she received, including the username of the messager, with a clear message: “Bring it on, motherfuckers.”

Read the message below. The messager in question has since deleted their Instagram account.

My band is lucky enough to have some of the most awesome, supportive and respectful fans in the world and we are so excited to be in the studio making an album to share with them. Yet, on a daily basis, we still receive communications like this. These people never learn that violence against women is unacceptable. But they also never learn that women will not be shamed and silenced and made to disappear. I am not going anywhere. So bring it on, motherfuckers. Let’s see who blinks first.

GABI celebrated 'Sympathy' @ LPR w/ Vorhees & Solvey - pics
Apr 23, 2015 12:36pm | Brooklyn Vegan

photos by Amanda Hatfield

GABI, aka NYC musician Gabrielle Herbst, released her new album Sympathy (co-produced by Oneohtrix Point Never) earlier this month, and she played a release show for it last night (4/22) at Le Poisson Rouge. The new album's in a similar realm to Julia Holter's classical-inspired art pop, though a bit more on the operatic side, which really came across at last night's show. GABI stuck to vocals and keyboards, as she was backed by several musicians playing strings, horns, guitar, vibraphone (at one point with a bow), and more.

Vorhees and Solvey opened. Pictures continue below...

Max D and Co La explore blissed-out ambient fusion on debut collaborative LP for PAN
Apr 23, 2015 12:33pm | Fact Magazine

The ambient revival continues with some contemporary floaters from the Lifted duo.

The PAN label has slipped out a surprise collaborative release between Future Times co-founder Max D and Baltimore sampler Co La under the name Lifted.

Though Max D is known as one of the USA’s most innovative house producers, the Lifted project sees him hook up with Co La for 1, an album that sees the pair “break free from the constrictions of the grid and exercise their versatility through improvised fusion.”

What that means in real terms is eight tracks of drunken rhythms and blissed-out ambient synth textures that sound roughly like a cross between the intergalactic free jazz excursions of Sun Ra and the woozy melodies of early Plaid. The album also features guest appearances from Juju & Jordash’s Jordan GCZ and ambient maestro Gigi Masin, who both sent overdubs from their studios in Amsterdam and Venice, and additional synthesis and percussion from Motion Graphics, 1432 R co-founder Dawit Eklund and Jeremy Hyman.

Anything on PAN always comes with an implied mark of quality, but even by its own high standards 1 is a rare delight – if you were into the weirder moments on Max D’s House Of Woo album or Co La’s abstract beatwork on Software it’s highl...

Sons of the beat scene: 10 producers to watch in 2015
Apr 23, 2015 12:16pm | Fact Magazine

For a couple of years at the end of the 2000s, beats were all the rage.

A hype bubble formed around a loose group of like-minded heads spread from Los Angeles to Glasgow via Montreal, Paris and Tokyo, and conspired to make this new wave of instrumental-minded producers the heralds of the new hip-hop underground. At the same time, dubstep was having its own hype bubble moment, and the two scenes, disparate from the outside but kindred souls beneath the sub rumbles and skittish beats, propped each other up and rode the bubbles to bursting point.

In England, the term wonky was coined some time in 2008 as an attempt to try and define the meeting point between dubstep and beats – a moniker that would turn out to be as divisive as IDM had been a generation before. Even the Guardian jumped on the hype train with an ill-thought-out op-ed on the non-existent relationship between wonky and ketamine. Where terminology failed, the music itself music spoke volumes, and the beats got steadily more boisterous as a new generation learned to embrace the low end. For a short while, the potential seemed infinite.

Five years on, it’s easy to look back on that short-lived period and think that perhaps it was all hype and nothing more. But that would be selling short the artists at the roots of the movement: Dabrye, Prefuse 73 and DJ Shadow. The impact of this generation is still being felt. You’ll hear it every Wednesday in the L...

Iron & Wine
Apr 23, 2015 12:15pm | StereoGum
Earlier this year, Sam Beam's beard-folk project Iron & Wine released the old-unreleased-songs collection Archive Series Volume No. 1, compiling music that Beam recorded around the same time as he made his 2002 debut The Creek Drank The Cradle. One of those songs was the lovely, minimal "Everyone's Summer Of '95," and it now … More »
