mp3 premiere: Blue Hawaii Get Happy / Get Happier
Oct 21, 2014 10:40am | Gorilla Vs Bear
( ) ‘Get Happy’ is a song we recorded one day in January 2014 but laid to rest as we got lost in the commotion of touring and moving to separate cities. As the year progressed, we found our live show intensify but still had all these softer recordings which would never be released. Hence we present Get Happy / Get Happier, where we explore both sides: the original demo and a fun, double-time edit made one day in August.
Montreal duo Blue Hawaii drop a beautifully conflicted new jam/mantra ahead of their CMJ dates: Listen to + download the hypnotic “Get Happy“, along with its more frantic, double-time counterpart, below. Raph and Agor bring their amazing live show to NYC this week for CMJ, check those dates after the jump…

Primitive Parts The Bench (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 21, 2014 10:36am | StereoGum
Primitive Parts is a new trio that features Kevin Hendrick and Robin Christian, two of the three members of the London bash-punk trio Male Bonding, as well as Sauna Youth’s Lindsay Corstorphine. Earlier this year, they released their “Open Heads” b/w “Signal” 7″, and it was really good. The band has another new 7″, “TV Wheels” b/w “The Bench,” coming out next month, and it’s B-side is a charged-up fuzz-bomb that doesn’t stint on melody. Give it a listen below.
Stream: Scott Walker and Sunn O)))s collaborative album Soused
Oct 21, 2014 10:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
This week, experimental singer-songwriter Scott Walker and drone metal outfit Sunn O))) release their collaborative album, Soused, through 4AD Records. Spotify users can also stream the LP in full below.
Walker was originally approached to appear on Sunn O)))s 2009 album Monoliths & Dimensions, but ultimately declined. However, in late 2013, he returned to Sunn O))) with new music he had written specifically for a potential collaboration. The album was recorded earlier this year and produced by Walker, his longtime collaborator/partner Peter Walsh, and musical director Mark Warman.
In an interview with The Quietus, Walker discussed how he and the band found a common ground in a general aesthetic and overall musical philosophy: “If you look at the last track on my last few albums its just me and its quite small or otherwise its a cast of thousands. They were a great compromise in that way because of the weight they have. I mean theyre so loud. When we recorded them [laughs] it was shockingly loud. Wed go into the studio and ha ha ha! We all had to wear earplugs. The first day we heard it – that brought new meaning to the phrase ‘guitar levels.'”
He also discussed how not knowing the band was actually a plus for the creative process: “Id never met them before, wed never spoken, we just turned up at the studio,” Walker said. “I thought it was the best way to do it. So ...
Prosumer to mix fabric 79
Oct 21, 2014 10:27am | Fact Magazine
The house maestro gets tapped for the next entry in the long-running series.
Achim “Prosumer” Brandenburg is no stranger around these parts, having delivered one of FACT’s best mixes in 2013. Thankfully, fabric have followed our lead, enlisting the DJ/producer for their next mix.
It was a bit like the process when packing for a gig: records that, for some reason, you think are a good fit for the club you are going to, some all-time favourites and some tracks you just discovered that you want everyone to hear,” says Prosumer. “I mixed it in my living room, using vinyl, a computer and mixer. The ducks outside my window were a hard crowd to read.”
The mix moves from “definitive house tracks of the late 80s and early 90s” to “groovier and deeper cuts from the world over,” and journey Prosumer is more than qualified to lead. fabric 79 is due out on December 8. The cover art and tracklist follow.

Ought New Calm, Pt. 2 Video
Oct 21, 2014 10:16am | StereoGum
Earlier this year, the Montreal postpunk band Ought released More Than Any Other Day, a complex and confident full-length debut that surprised a lot of people. The album didn’t quite come out of nowhere, though. Last year, the band self-released a promising EP called New Calm. And later this month, they’ll drop another new EP called Once More With Feeling…, which includes re-recorded versions of two of those New Calm tracks. We’ve already posted “Pill,” and now they’ve made a video for “New Calm, Pt. 2,” a seven-minute freakout that sounds like what might’ve happened if David Byrne had hosted a late-’80s D.C. hardcore band. In the video, directors Aaliyeh Afshar and Max Taeuschel juxtapose footage of the band performing with images of a woman at a laundromat and a bunch of kids at a birthday party. Watch it below.
Brooklyns Glasslands Is Closing
Oct 21, 2014 10:15am | StereoGum
Looks like another Williamsburg venue is closing up shop. Following last month’s news that Death By Audio would be closing in November, Glasslands — which is right around the corner from DBA — has announced that they will be shutting down as well. In a post on their website today, they said that their last show will be on New Year’s Eve. Glasslands opened in 2006 and quickly became a staple on the Williamsburg waterfront, surrounded by a once-burgeoning strip of concert venues, most of which have been shuttered or have moved further inland. Known for an eclectic and diverse roster and notoriously shitty lighting that made it really hard to snap a good photo, it was one of the good ones. Stereogum even hosted a number of shows there over the years, including for CMJ 2011 and 2012. Rest in peace. Read the venue’s full statement below:
Torn Hawk Acceptance Speech
Oct 21, 2014 10:06am | StereoGum
If “I’m Flexible” didn’t convince you that Torn Hawk’s Let’s Cry And Do Pushups At The Same Time is worthy of your feverish anticipation, try “Acceptance Speech” on for size. Luke Wyatt’s latest “visual single” is an effervescent guitar mirage that sounds like a crackling dub of the Top Gun soundtrack — think Mark McGuire’s nostalgic instrumental sprawl hemmed into a more compact, pop-friendly context. It’s matched with pixellated visuals that seem to be culled from a hallucinatory Photoshop session. All together, it’s a wonderful piece of work. Watch and listen below.
Big Star share Daisy Glaze from upcoming vinyl release of Live in Memphis listen
Oct 21, 2014 10:05am | Cosequence Of Sound
As previously reported, Big Stars only known concert film, Live in Memphis, will be released on DVD for the first time ever on November 4th. The hour-long film chronicles the band’s hometown performance at New Daisy from October 29th, 1994. Today, Omnivore Recordings has offered up a sneak peek of the newly-remastered audio in the form of “Daisy Glaze”.
Originally found on 1974’s Radio City, the track opens with the album version’s slow, simple guitars, albeit amped up a couple notches as to accommodate for the live setting. Frontman Alex Chilton’s pristine voice comes in crystal clear over Jody Stephens’ pounding drums, immediately establishing the song’s core dynamic. As Chilton’s vocals waver achingly, Stephens suddenly pummels his kit with the intensity of a Norse thunder god, signaling a tempo shift as the song blasts upward. After all that bravado and noise, hearing the late Chilton let out his quick “thanks” at the end is nearly as breathtaking as the track itself.
You couldn’t ask for a crisper live recording, so listen in below. Just think, if the audio makes it feel this real, imagine what the video will do.
Available digitally as well as on CD or double LP, Live in Memphis includes the full 20-song audio recording of the show, plus liner notes penned by Stephen...
Ariel Pink: Everybodys a victim, except for small, white, nice guys who just want to touch some boobies
Oct 21, 2014 10:05am | Fact Magazine
Ariel Pink‘s already pissed off half of the indie world, and now he’s aiming for the masses.
The Haunted Graffiti singer, who showed some particularly nasty colours in an interview earlier this year, took aim at Madonna – who he claimed wanted him aboard her new album – in an interview this month.
An army of Madonna fans took to Twitter to berate him for his comments, while Grimes claimed that his “delusional misogyny” was “emblematic of the kind of bullshit everyone woman in this industry faces daily”.
In a new interview with the New Yorker, Pink responds to the Madonna reaction – as well as MySpace’s claim that he was the most hated man in indie rock. And it’s pretty clear that he’s now just trolling. From the piece:

Get On Down reveal Record Store Day exclusives including a playable vinyl postcard
Oct 21, 2014 9:59am | Fact Magazine
Black Friday is almost upon us.
Anyone outside of the USA could be excused for not really knowing what Black Friday is – it’s basically the day after Thanksgiving, and has become known as the most important shopping day of the year. Cue retailers tripping over each other to make sure their deal’s the best on the block, and understandably Record Store Day became very interested in the idea of offering a bunch of exclusive releases to give the nation’s vinyl retailers something special to hawk.
Get On Down’s selection for Black Friday is looking particularly ace, and rather than just press up a few unnecessary live Phish LPs, they’ve gone for something far more, well, interesting. At the top of the pile is a bumper boxset (seriously this thing has to be seen to be believed) from James Brown’s People Records packed with a bunch of essential 7″s from the label, each lovingly recreated with art from the original label.
Elsewhere there are a couple of Christmas records (’tis the season, after all): Run DMC’s ‘Christmas in Hollis’ is back in print for the first time in 15 years and has been pressed on 7″ and comes with a magnificent playable vinyl postcard (we’re desperate to hear how one of these sounds after being mailed across the world). Also, there’s a reissue of 1987 compilation Christmas Rap featuring tracks from Run DMC, Sweet Tee, The S...
