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
Feb 27, 2015 4:41pm | StereoGum
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 […]



The 5 Best Videos Of The Week
Feb 27, 2015 4:18pm | StereoGum
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 -- 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
Feb 27, 2015 3:58pm | StereoGum
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 […]



Watch Kanye West Sing Only One On Scandinavian Talk Show Skavlan
Feb 27, 2015 3:53pm | StereoGum
For his first-ever appearance on Swedish television Kanye West performed the Donda-channeling AutoTune lullaby “Only One” on the Nordic show Skavlan. He wore an all-black sweat suit — probably from his new line — and performed on a darkly-lit stage with just one morphing, geometric spotlight. It’s the same, stark format he’s used for all […]



Will Butler shares new song By the Waters of Babylon
Feb 27, 2015 3:52pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Today marks the end of Will Butlers week-long project in collaboration with The Guardian. After delivering four new songs over the last four days, the Arcade Fire member has turned in the final entry in the song-a-day series: “By the Waters of Babylon”.

Tackling perhaps his most pressing and poignant topic, Butler wrote the song after reading a story about ISIS members destroying millennia old artifacts in Iraq’s Mosul museum. “I cant imagine the sorrow and rage of the people whose lands have been overrun by Isis, whose family and friends are murdered, whose culture is being destroyed,” Butler said. “Mosul is a part of our heritage, part of the worlds heritage, and the loss of its history is heartbreaking.”

He evokes Psalm 137, “a song of sorrow and rage from the mouth of a refugee,” in the lyrics, noting, “This song is not a policy prescription. The last lines should evoke horror. But the emotions behind the words are ancient and real.” Take a listen:

For the rest of Butlers newspaper-inspired songs, check out Clean Monday, Waving Flags, You Must Be Kidding, and “Madonna Can’t Save Me Now”. Meanwhile, he will release his solo debut, Policy, on March 10th through Merge.

Australian party rock duo The Gooch Palms have expanded their tour with LA riff-n-wailers Death Valley Girls to include East Coast dates as well, including a stop in NYC at Silent Barn on May 12. The rest of that lineup is still TBA, and we also wouldn't be surprised if the two bands add another NYC show while here. All dates are listed below.

The Gooch Palms recently released a new 7" single and you can watch a video from that below. Death Valley Girls (who no longer include Patty Schemel as a member) released the "Electric High" single back in December and you can stream that below as well.

All tour dates for each band are listed below...

House legend Lil Louis is deaf in his left ear after airhorn blast
Feb 27, 2015 3:04pm | Fact Magazine

“Even if I can only hear with one ear, Ill play twice as loud, so you can feel it.”

Last month Lil Louis’ continuing career was left in doubt after a debilitating ear injury from a promoter who let off an airhorn mere inches from the legendary producer during his performance. Now he has shared an update through his Facebook. Louis will never hear again in his left ear, however he’s not letting that stop his career.

The producer wrote to his fans “I will not stop. Even if I can only hear with one ear, Ill play twice as loud.” He said that while the news has been difficult, he’s accepted it and will move forward. Read his full statement below.

“Hi
Appreciate all of your love.
Regretfully I have been told that I have suffered permanent damage in my left ear. Difficult as this has been to fathom, Ive excepted this as my new normal.
Ive considered walking away a thousand times Until this morning when I was awakened by a voice that said, You have a gift.
Hearing that voice, I realised the gift God gave me was not in my ears. It was where Ive heard everything I ever created first, in my mind.
So for my father and everyone who prayed for me, I move ONWARDS I will not stop. Even if I can only hear with one ear, Ill play twice as loud, so you can feel it
Sincerely
Lil Louis”
