Helado Negro I Krill You Video
Jul 23, 2014 11:07am | StereoGum

Electronic musician Roberto Carlos Lange will soon put out Double Youth, his new album under the long-running moniker Helado Negro. We’ve already heard the new single “I Krill You” (which somehow wasn’t already used as a title by the band Krill), and now he’s shared a video for the song. Blending glittering streamers, footage of forests, flashing blue lights, and closeups of Lange singing, it all melts into an impressionistic whole that fits the song well. Watch it below.

CMJ Music Marathon alums TOPS dropped a 7-inch late last month and are now prepping a sophomore LP for Arbutus Records, Picture You Staring. The album’s new single, Way To Be Loved, is a skidding, half-shy pop track with singer Jane Penny sounding like a pair of eyes peeking from around a corner. The full album drops in September, but for now, you can listen to Way To Be Loved below.

L.A. band Vulfpeck will be paid $20,000 in Spotify royalties from a silent album
Jul 23, 2014 11:03am | Chart Attack

There doesn't seem to be a requirement for albums on Spotify's vast library of streamable audio to actually be music. Of course, all these plays still mean royalties for the artist, even if the "song" is an orgasm noise.

Earlier this year, LA's Vulfpeck took advantage of this by releasing an entirely silent album on Spotify for their fans to stream while they slept. Sleepify  its songs named "Z" through "Zzzzzzzzzz" and each just over 30 seconds long  raised over $20,000, enough to fund a tour of entirely free shows. They are heroes.

At first it didn't seem as though Spotify would pay the band. Although the company was indulgent at first, they pulled the album in late April without giving a reason or citing a terms violation, leading to an impressive amount of backlash. In a statement of support on Facebook, alt-rock gods Cake questioned whether there was a double standard for demonizing profit at work:

"Artists who "adapt and evolve" get smacked down? "Permissionless innovation and disruption" only truly excellent when done TO artists?"

Following Sleepify's takedown Vulfpeck released a three track EP responding to Spotify's decision, entitled Official Statement. But by then, Sleepify had already been streamed 5.5 million times over seven weeks. Compare that to the 120,000 plays Vulfpeck's 2013 s...

The first album from To Rococo Rot in four years feels like a collaboration, even though the collaborator in this case the American singer-guitarist Arto Lindsay appears on just three of its 10 tracks. Still, the presence of Lindsay feels to have shunted the Berlin trio onto a slightly parallel line, their electronic post-rock settling comfortably into a format you might broadly define as songy.

Certainly, Lindsay and To Rococo Rot the trio of brothers Ronald and Robert Lippok and Stefan Schneider feel like easy bedfellows. Lindsay was an attendee at To Rococo Rots first ever New York show in the late ’90s, and has since expressed his admiration for the band in the press. More importantly, though, you can identify a sort of shared aesthetic here. While perhaps still best known for his early work, the guitar skronk and scrawl of his no wave bands DNA, Ambitious Lovers, etc, in recent years Lindsay has pursued a more softly experimental path, blending exploratory electronics with a tropical pop style influenced by his upbringing in Brazil. Both he and To Rococo Rot make music that plays on and across boundary lines: mingling and fusing the organic and the electronic, the melodic and the ambient, the sterile and the sensual.

From the opening ‘Many Descriptions’, Lindsay slots in without friction. Cloudy synths flip and weave between channels, an unadorned guitar picks out crisp motifs, t...

Stream : La Hell Gang : Thru Me Again LP
Jul 23, 2014 10:52am | My Old Kentucky Blog

Thru Me Again is the sophomore LP from Chilean trio La Hell Gang released this week via Mexican Summer. On the album, they combine psychedelia of the late ’60s along with the grittier leanings of early ’90s grunge creating desolate, heavy-reverbed recondite rock. It screams to be heard on a pair of headphones while spacing out in your den or getting wasted by fire in the nighttime. Regardless of your listening choices, this has been one of the more unexpected releases to be on massive rotation for us. Give it a spin below and purchase it here.

Júníus Meyvant Color Decay
Jul 23, 2014 10:52am | StereoGum

That impressively bearded fellow in the picture above is Unnar Gísli Sigurmundsson, whose songwriting alias is the slightly more pronounceable Júníus Meyvant. The Icelandic artist just put out his debut single, “Color Decay,” a polished slice of bright folk-pop buoyed up by a sprightly horn arrangement. It’s already a hit in his native country, and you can listen to it below.

Oneirogen is a blast to watch, a one-man force of nature that blends looping electronics with memorable guitar leads to inundating effect. You can meanwhile catch him this Saturday (7/26) at Trans Pecos<...

Speedy Ortiz @ 4Knots 2014

Modern Life Is War recently announced two club dates to happen this summer at Philly's First Unitarian Church on 8/29 and NYC's Bowery Ballroom on 8/30. Since we last spoke, openers have been announced for both shows. Direct support on the Philly date will come from MLIW's Deathwish labelmates Self Defense Family, and on the NYC show it's heavy shoegazers Nothing (who were in NYC a few days ago for a free show with Ceremony and Iron Lung). Opening both dates will be DC punks Give and Iowa psychedelic band Land of Blood & Sunshine. Tickets for Philly and NYC are on sale now.

Speaking of bands who just played free NYC shows being added as openers to hardcore shows, Speedy Ortiz, who just played 4Knots, were added to the Fucked Up show happening at Irving Plaza on September 6. Tickets for that show are still available. Speedy will return to NYC not long after that for two shows on their tour with Ex Hex.

We already posted one set of pictures of 4Knots, and another batch of Speedy's set is in this post. They continue, with lists of Speedy and Nothing dates, below...

Check Out The New Amy Winehouse Comic Book Released On The Third Anniversary Of Her Death
Jul 23, 2014 10:45am | StereoGum

Amy Winehouse died three years ago today, and to commemorate her death, the comic book company Bluewater Productions, which seems to specialize exclusively in quickie comic-book bios of dead celebrities, has published a Winehouse comic called Tribute: Amy Winehouse. The book, which Michael L. Frizell wrote and Jayfri Hashim drew, exists in the grand tradition of the company’s recent, fascinatingly terrible Tribute: Kurt Cobain, with the troubling additional factor that it’s probably supposed to give boners. Below, check out a few of the pages, many of which revolve around a topless Winehouse getting tattooed and thinking song lyrics to herself.


Heres our first look at Paul Dano as Brian Wilson in biopic
Jul 23, 2014 10:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

As previously reported, actor Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Looper) is set to star as a young Brian Wilson in the forthcoming biopic about the legendary Beach Boys musician. Today, we get our first look at Dano as Wilson (via The Playlist).

Entitled Love and Mercy, the biopic “paints an unconventional portrait of the artist by interweaving seminal moments in his life, from his artistic genius to his profound struggles, and the love that keeps him alive,” according to the official plot synopsis. John Cusack also stars in the film, playing Wilson later in life. The cast also includes Elizabeth Banks (who plays Wilson’s second wife, Melinda) and Paul Giamatti (who plays his longtime therapist, Dr. Eugene Landy). Bill Pohlad (The Tree of Life) is serving as director.

Love and Mercy is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
