Listen: St. Vincent Del Rio
Mar 6, 2014 1:15pm | CMJ
St. Vincent @ Terminal 5, 2014 – Photo by Robert Altman
The internet is an incredible thing. In addition to all the cat videos you can watch, it also allows some kind soul across the globe to share with us a St. Vincent cut that wasn’t included on the U.S. release of her acclaimed self-titled album. Del Rio is fairly straightforward in comparison to the rest of St. Vincent, but it’s far from uninteresting. Annie Clark’s bluesy melody flows perfectly atop the indie trip-rock beat, and although the quality of the recording isn’t great you can still pick up on the sonic depth of the song.
Del Rio is available as the B-side to the European single of Digital Witness, and as a bonus track on the Japanese pressing of St. Vincent, but if you don’t have the patience or means of obtaining these treasures, you’ll have to live vicariously through that lucky fan on the other end of the screen for the time being.
The post Listen: St. Vincent – “Del Rio” appeared first on CMJ.
Listen: How To Dress Well drops the reverb for Words I Dont Remember
Mar 6, 2014 1:12pm | Chart Attack
How To Dress Wells abandoned wedding reception-R&B without reverb could have been Home Improvement without Al Borland. But Tom Krell proved fans of both his music and Tim Allen wrong on Total Loss, a sophomore album that invested heavily in his upfront and devastating vocal stylings. New single “Words I Don’t Remember” does the same more than ever; this is a true love stump speech, as soulful and direct as something so strange as love can be, no matter if it’s for another person or ’90s sitcoms.
How To Dress Well’s “Words I Don’t Remember” single is out tomorrow via Domino. Read his picks for Essential Albums here.

Identifying Hipster Bands and Bro Bands: A Scientific Study
Mar 6, 2014 1:07pm | Cosequence Of Sound
A few years back, I was avoiding my family on Christmas by listening to Arcade Fire’s Neon Bible. With all the grace and couth in the world, my cousin slugged me in the arm and asked what I was playing. I told him, and he responded that, because he was unfamiliar with them, it must be “hipster bullshit.” Oh, and “They’re probably not as good as Pennywise,” he added. Since then, most of our interactions have dealt with me trying to quantify and explain what really is or isn’t “hipster bullshit”, with any well-thought arguments about cultural context and artistic merit met with “Whatever, tool-bag.” Next time around, however, I’m just gonna slap the “The Hipster Music Index” right in his Affliction-wearing grill and do a little two-step.
Created by Priceonomics, the “The Hipster Music Index” is a way to confront “humorous generalizations about hipsters” by using “data capabilities to shed light on the hipster condition.” Priceonomics used two primary criteria to discern just what exactly the average hipster listens to: positive Pitchfork album reviews and how much traffic/attention any given band/artist is receiving via Facebook. So, just what did they uncover in their pursuit of higher knowledge?
As Priceonomics explains, “For a given Pitchfork Review Score, the trend line uses a linear regression to predict how many ...
Iron Reagan sign to Relapse Records, touring, playing SXSW
Mar 6, 2014 1:05pm | Brooklyn Vegan
By Doug Moore
Given that Iron Reagan consists of current and former members of two very well-established metal bands (namely Municipal Waste & Darkest Hour), it's no surprise that they're on their way up so quickly. Formed just two years ago, this straight-ahead crossover thrash act has already built a substantial national following and adopted an aggressive tour schedule.
To wit: the band have announced their recent signing to the storied Relapse Records (who have been snatching up bands left and right lately -- they've signed IR, Torche, The Drip, Atriarch, & Nux Vomica this year alone). They've also announced an extensive run of live dates through March and April, with accompaniment from Occultist on most of the dates and Ghoul on a handful as well. The dates with Ghoul wrap up with an appearance at the aforementioned Tankcrimes Brainsqueeze festival; you can stream the Invisible Oranges-debuted Tankcrimes compilation of fest participants below.
Iron Reagan aren't hitting NYC on this run, unfortunately, but they'll be putting in a number of appearances at SXSW: the Pitchfork showcase on 3/11, the Converse/Thrasher show on 3/13, the MetalSucks showcase on 3/14, and the Tone Deaf showcase on 3/15. They're NOT appearing at the second annual Invisible Oranges showcase, which will feature Black Tusk, Mutoid Man, Kayo Dot,...

DAngelo to release album of rare live recordings
Mar 6, 2014 1:02pm | Cosequence Of Sound
It was around this time in 2012 that D’Angelo began his resurgence. Sporadic dates throughout much of that year led to a deeper itinerary for 2013, including slots at Bonnaroo and dates with Questlove as “The Soulquarians: Brothers in Arms”. Couple in promises that his long-awaited third album, tentatively titled James River, was “99% completed”, and D’Angelo at least seemed ready to claim the R&B crown he all but abandoned in the early 2000s. Unfortunately, an illness last fall led to canceled dates, which turned into extended inactivity, and we’re basically right back where we started. (Even with the glimmer of hope sparked by recent in-studio footage).
With springtime now upon us, D’Angelo has returned from his latest hibernation. On March 25th, Virgin/UMe will issue Live at the Jazz Cafe, London: The Complete Show. The 12-track effort combines a six-track live EP released only in Japan with recordings from the eponymous London concert from September 14th, 1995. Accompanied by singer/rapper Angie Jones, D’Angelo performs standbys like “Brown Sugar” and “Lady”, plus covers of Al Green, Ohio Players, and Mandrill.
Jazz Cafe, London will be available digitally and on CD; the latter bundle includes a new essay by D’Angelo’s manager Alan Leeds and a translation of the Japanese liner notes, which features bits of a...
S. Carey Crown The Pines
Mar 6, 2014 1:00pm | StereoGum
Bon Iver sideman S. Carey is going to release his new album Range Of Light next month, and if you haven’t already checked it out, I heartily recommend first single “Fire-Scene” and its stunning video. Now he’s shared another one called “Crown The Pines,” and it’s just as formless and pretty, its voices and violins and pianos and drums falling all over each other like water droplets. Listen below.
Ghetto Ghouls releasing an LP, playing SXSW (song stream)
Mar 6, 2014 12:59pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Andrew Sacher
Austin garage rockers Ghetto Ghouls are releasing their self-titled LP on April 8 via Monofonus Press, and after sharing one of its tracks, "Peepshow," they're back with another, "Living Alone," which makes its premiere in this post. It's a lo-fi, distortion-covered downer punk dirge that has the singer yelling not much more than "I'M LIVINGGG ALONEEE" repeatedly and increasingly less restrained for the song's minute and a half duration. Check it out below.
Like many other Austin bands, Ghetto Ghouls will play a number of hometown shows next week for the insanity that is SXSW, including the Ping Pong day party at Hotel Vegas (3/12) with Natural Child, Shocked Minds, Dirty Fences and more; the Monofonus Press day party at Beerland (3/12) with Destruction Unit, Guerilla Toss, Lushes and others; the Thread Pull Records day party at Trailer Space (3/13) with Crooked Bangs, Lie and others; the official Monofonus showcase at The Hideout (3/15) with Protomartyr, Love Inks and more; and the annual Panache Hangover Party on Sunday (3/16) with Tweens, September Girls, The Blind Shake, Calvin Love, A Giant Dog, Yvette and many more.
Their SXSW schedule in list format, and the new song, below...

Video : Fly Moon Royalty : DNA
Mar 6, 2014 12:54pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
Seattle’s Fly Moon Royalty, comprised of singer Adra Boo and producer MC Action J, absolutely blew our mind with their single “DNA” from their new EP, Unfinished Business. It unique, but captivating electro-soul that is a mixture of Daft Punk with Parliament Funkadelic with a side of R&B definitely has a feel different than anything else released this year. It is cold, but highly sensual at the same time. The just released a new black and white video capturing some of that mood. Watch it below.

PREMIERE: Optical Sounds second Toronto(ish) compilation, Psych Pop 2
Mar 6, 2014 12:30pm | Chart Attack
Optical Sounds has been Torontos unofficial psychedelic home base for about six years now, operating in their own underground, independent of both blog buzz and music industry bullshit. A “label in the loosest sense (more focused on community and parties than physical releases), Optical Sounds has become a hub for any artist who feels like pumping up the reverb, dabbling in paisley or gazing at their shoes, whether or not theyre part of the official roster theyll still be invited to play one of their ragers.
Weve got the official premiere of Optical Sounds second compilation, Psych Pop 2, streaming below, and its another gloriously imperfect snapshot of a scene that refuses to confine itself to a single sound or location. Like the last compilation (which included the words From Toronto), the albums title is a loose umbrella: theres all-D drone from Ostrich Tuning, girl group sun pop from The BB Guns, orchestral space rock from Flowers of Hell, dirty garage from B-17 and guest appearances by Montreals Chevalier Avant-Garde, New Yorks Your 33 Black Angels, and more. Optical Sounds co-founder Richard Gibson explains (that’s him up there with his older brother/OS partner/fellow ginger Robert):
