Musique concrète composer Tod Dockstader has died
Feb 28, 2015 6:22am | Fact Magazine

The renowned composer was 82 years old. 

Known for his work in the musique concrète field, Dockstader worked as an apprentice film editor in Hollywood in the mid-’50s, before becoming a sound engineer in 1958. He was also responsible for creating sound effects for ’50s animations like Tom and Jerry, Mr. Magoo and Gerald McBoing-Boing. 

Dockstader released his debut album in 1960, Eight Electronic Pieces, and continued to release music throughout the decade (Eight Electronic Pieces was also used as the soundtrack for Federico Fellini’s 1969 film Satyricon). After Gotham Recording Studios, where he worked, was shut down, his recorded output slowed down, but a series of ’90s reissues found him new recognition as a composer, and he released a succession of new albums between 2004 and 2006, including the three part Aerial series.

More recently, Dockstader had work reissued by the Mordant Music label, who paired him with contemporary remixers such as Ekoplekz.

Dockstader’s death was confirmed by Justin Brierly, who is working on a documentary about the composer, titled Unlocking Dockstader.

“This evening my dear friend and musical inspiration, Tod Dockstader passed away”, Brierly writes

What's going Saturday? (Screaming Females, Disappears, Behemoth, Gaslight Anthem, Summer Moon & more)
Feb 27, 2015 11:01pm | Brooklyn Vegan

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Disappears, Suuns, Christines @ Rough Trade
Chicago's Disappears just released Irreal, the band's darkest, most paranoid/obtuse record yet. That's not a bad thing and, mind you, it may sound different when they play it tonight as their songs tend to change after they've played them live for a while. Armed with an insanely good rhythm section, they're worth seeing anywhere, anytime. Same goes for Montreal's Suuns who have a similar krauty / sinister edge. Local boys Christines open and sound a little like Swervedriver. Highly recommended.

Screaming Females, Priests, Tenement, Vacation @ Knitting Factory (2 shows)
Screaming Females are already known for their shredding guitar solos, but the new album Rose Mountain has the band focusing a little more on great choruses. It's up their with the best of their previous work. Tonight's their second and third of the four NYC shows on this current tour. All three openers are killer too.

Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, AEON, Tribulation @ Webster Hall
This all-death metal bill is co-headlined by Poland's Behemoth, whose 2014 LP The Satanist was hugely and deservedly acclaimed, and one of Americ...

NYC punks Scrapers (mem of Roger Miret & the Disasters) released an LP, playing Aviv on Sat w/ Couch Slut (listen)
Feb 27, 2015 4:58pm | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

The masked four-piece pictured above is NYC's Scrapers, who feature former Roger Miret and the Disasters bassist Brian Darwas, plus vocalist Bee Wiseman (aka "Mr. Bee," head barber at Frank's Chop Shop), Sol Keller, and Dodi Wiemuth. This past January, they released their new album, Dark Party, which is nine songs of early '80s-style hardcore. None of them pass the two-minute park, a handful don't even hit the one-minute mark, and all of them rip. Listen below.

Scrapers play their hometown on Saturday (2/28) at Aviv (496 Morgan) with the great Couch Slut (who also play Coco 66 tonight), Chain Gang Grave and The Gentlemen. The all ages show starts at 8 PM, and admission is $5 at the door.

Stream Dark Party below...

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

For all the fresh beefing we were made to endure this week, it’s nice to have the 5 Best Songs to help us remember why we listen to music in the first place. Musicians dissing each other is fun (and often very, very funny), but at the end of a long week, it’s about so […]

There were plenty of good videos this week, but none of them came close to touching another video, albeit one that wasn’t officially a music video. Kanye West’s performance of “All Day” at the Brit Awards would’ve been a thing of beauty even without the fucking flamethrowers: A goddam Boot Camp Clik video, staged in […]



Motor Sister played Saint Vitus, streaming LP, now labelmates with an ex-Megadeth band; Overkill schedule NYC show
Feb 27, 2015 4:04pm | Brooklyn Vegan

Motor Sister -- the new band of Mother Superior's Jim Wilson, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Scott's wife and Jim's past collaborator Pearl Aday, Joey Vera (briefly also of Anthrax), and John Tempesta (ex-Exodus, Testament, currently of The Cult) -- are just over a week away from releasing their debut album, Ride (due 3/10 via Metal Blade), and it's now streaming in full via AllMusic. Listen below.

Motor Sister were also just in NYC, playing Saint Vitus on February 12. Anyone go to that show? How were they? If you missed it, or just want to relive it, check out two videos from the show below.

Scott Ian wasn't the only '80s thrash veteran to play Vitus this month. Former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo played on 2/23 with his band Philm. Philm's tour hits NYC again on Monday (3/2) at The Stone. Slayer without Lombardo is touring this year too, and Motor Sister drummer John Tempesta's two former bands Testament and Exodus are touring together. Exodus guitarist Gary Holt is also a current member of Slayer.

Motor Sister are also now labelmates with two former Megadeth members, Chris Broderick (guitar from 2008-2014) and Shawn Drover (drums from 2004-2014). The two recently teamed up with Henry Derek (ex-Scar The Martyr) on vocals and Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall) on bass to form the band Act of Defiance, who will ha...


Will Butler By The Waters Of Babylon

The last of Will Butler’s daily songs inspired by Guardian stories is “By The Waters Of Babylon,” a mournful ballad written in response to ISIS ransacking the museum at Mosul and destroying dozens of ancient artifacts. Here’s what the Arcade Fire sideman wrote about his creation: The words to today’s song are taken from Psalm […]
