Robyn & Royksopp on Ppier 97 - 8/20/14

Dance-pop emissaries Robyn and Royksopp kicked off a new North American run of their tour in NYC to a sold-out crowd on Pier 97 last night (8/20). The two acts have been on the road intermittently this year in support of their collaborative mini-LP. Following an opening set from Robyn's fellow Swede Zhala (who's signed to her label), Royksopp played a full-band set with guest vocals from collaborator Susanne Sundfor, and then Robyn played her set, getting the biggest cheers of the nights for her hits "Call Your Girlfriend" and "Dancing On My Own." Then Robyn and Royksopp closed things out together with their collaborative set, which included material from their mini-LP and an encore of "None of Dem" (from Robyn's Body Talk LP), which features Royksopp. Pictures of the show, including one of the setlist, are in this post.

You can get your Robyn on in NYC again with the 'This Party Is Killing You' party, "a night of all Robyn everything," happening at Glasslands on September 26. Tickets for that are on sale now.

More pictures and a video for their recent Fallon performance, below...

Thurston Moore: Black Metal is music made by pussies of the lowest order
Aug 21, 2014 10:16am | Cosequence Of Sound

In 2012, Thurston Moore collaborated with Twilight, a black metal super group featuring members of Nachtmystium, The Atlas Moth, and more. In March of this year, the band released its new album, III: Beneath Tridents Tomb, but upon doing so, immediatly announced their breakup. Yet, Moore isn’t quite ready to remove his black nail polish.

No less than a day after announcing his new solo album, The Best Day, Moore has revealed plans for a second LP. Entitled Full Bleed, it comes from his new collaborative project with Chelsea Light Moving bandmate John Moloney, which they’ve dubbed, Caught on Tape.

In an accompanying press release, Moore discusses how the black metal genre influenced the sound of Full Bleed, and leaves us with this utterly amazing quote (via BrooklynVegan).

Black Metal is music made by pussies of the lowest order, and we felt it was necessary to investigate this aberrant anti-music behaviour. We feel like the sound and attitude of black metal is a loss of self, life, light and desire in a way where it becomes so negative that a whole new bliss arrives where we become super pussy.

Look for Full Bleed, in all its super pussy galore, beginning October 21st via Northern Spy. The Best Day also arrives October 21st via Matador Records.



Run The Jewels Detail Second Album, Share Blockbuster Night Part 1
Aug 21, 2014 10:15am | CMJ


We knew this was coming and we knew there would be pizza bagels. El-P and Killer Mike, the dynamic rap duo known as Run The Jewels, have finally given us a date for their upcoming album, RTJ2. It’s October 28. The sophomore release also has the pair moving from Fool’s Gold to Mass Appeal.

We heard a little snippet of the album’s first single, Blockbuster Night Part 1, back in July, but now the whole thing is available to stream. That means you can start your day with Killer Mike spitting, “Top o’ the morning/My fist to your face is fucking Folgers,” like his cheeks are full of rage. Listen below.

Bahamas Bahamas Is Afie
Aug 21, 2014 9:55am | CMJ

In a touching recent promotional video, Bahamas (aka Afie Jurvanen) drives around his hometown of Toronto with his best friend and plays him a copy of his newest album, Bahamas Is Afie, for the first time. Eventually, the two settle at a booth in a restaurant and discuss the fact that sometimes it’s easier to write music from a place of discomfort than a place of comfort. “I think its harder to be honest about [writing] if youre happy,” Jurvanen says. “When its too earnest, when its too open, it kinda scares people off.”

Bahamas Is Afie, out this week on Brushfire Records, finds Jurvanen tackling that challenge head-on. It’s his third album released under the Bahamas pseudonym, but the album title points toward the eradication of the distance that previously existed between Bahamas and the man behind the Bahamas mask. Bahamas Is Afie is, for the most part, just as direct as its title, a tender record that has little to hide. It is the sound of a songwriter getting comfortable in his own skin. However, Bahamas Is Afie manages to avoid the trappings of jarring over-earnestness by also displaying an acute awareness of what does and does not qualify as self-indulgence.

From a musical standpoint, the album is the picture of restraint. Jurvanen is clearly an extremely gifted guitarist, but all of this albums leads are completely understated. All The Time is argu...


Thurston Moore: Black Metal Is Music Made By Pussies Of The Lowest Order
Aug 21, 2014 9:54am | StereoGum

Last year, Thurston Moore hooked up with American black metal supergroup Twilight for what would become that band’s third and final album, III: Beneath Trident’s Tomb, released at the beginning of 2014. III is a really good album, but its creation was nothing short of a hot fucking mess, due in no small part to the actions of deposed Twilight co-founder Blake Judd, also of Nachtmystium. I wrote a whole bunch about those actions last year — in short: Judd stole from his friends and fans and he landed in jail for theft. Judd publicly expressed contrition and asked me to share his apologies with Stereogum readers — which I did — but according to the internet, he’s once again up to no good: There’s now a Facebook group dedicated to documenting Judd’s alleged scams, which I predict will either result in a class-action lawsuit and/or another bus ride to county. Orange is the new black metal! Anyway, Thur-Mo’s BM dabbling is apparently in the rearview, and who can blame him? Being involved in that trainwreck would have scared off just about anyone. A press release for Full Bleed, the upcoming album from the Moore-John Moloney collaboration Caught On Tape, includes the pretty random exchange re: black metal:

Bell Gardens Darker Side Of Sunshine (Stereogum Premiere)
Aug 21, 2014 9:52am | StereoGum

Where I’m from, Brian McBride is a soccer player, but a different Brian McBride has been responsible for a lot of great music over the years, most prominently the ambient drone duo Stars Of The Lid. In recent years McBride has been recording with Furry Things’ Kenneth James Gibson under the name Bell Gardens, and they’ll soon release their sophomore full-length Slow Dawns For Lost Conclusions. Opening track “Darker Side Of Sunshine” definitely sounds like its title. It’s a glorious bit of slowly emerging psych-Americana that makes me feel like dawn is breaking and so is my heart. Listen below, where you’ll also find a trailer for the new album.

Aphex Twins SYRO Detailed In Offbeat Press Release
Aug 21, 2014 9:48am | StereoGum

As previously reported, Aphex Twin will soon release SYRO, his first proper album in 13 years. He built up anticipation with a blimp and some graffiti, and then he made the announcement itself on the deep web. So now that Warp, his longtime label, has confirmed the details of the LP, you know they can’t just issue a straightforward press release about it. The important thing you need to know: The album is out 9/23. That’s just 33 days away! It’ll be available on triple-vinyl, which mean it will be long! The all-text image in that deep-web link is the actual album artwork, and it comes from the Designers Republic. But it’s also worth noting that Warp made the announcement in a press release that refers to Aphex as “celebrated and influential electronic fartist” and claims that his “rooster has been the slow development.” You may as well immerse yourself in the syntactic chaos. The press release is below, as is a new promotional photo and the album’s final tracklist.

Scott Walker and Sunn O))) delay release of collaborative LP, share artwork and teaser trailer
Aug 21, 2014 9:46am | Cosequence Of Sound

Experimental singer-songwriter Scott Walker and drone metal outfit Sunn O))) have pushed back the release of their collaborative album, Soused. Originally due out September 23rd via 4AD, the five-track, 50-minute effort will now hit shelves a month later on October 21st.

As a kind of mea culpa, the collective have shared the foreboding cover art (above) and our first taste of Soused in the form of a two-minute trailer. With near-endless sonic possibilities for Sunn Walker (my name for the outfit), the teaser indicates a sound thats deeply rooted in both Avant garde classical and heavy, pulverizing drone. No matter its origins, though, its totally manic and utterly jarring.

Watch it below.

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.

Soused (CD/digital):
01. Brando
02. Herod 2014
03. Bull
04. Fetish
05. Lullaby

Soused (LP):
A1. Brando
A2. Bull
B1. Herod 2014
C1. Fetish
C2. Lullaby



Watch And Listen To Scott Walker + Sunn O)))s Soused Trailer
Aug 21, 2014 9:46am | StereoGum

We recently received some actual details about Scott Walker and Sunn O)))’s upcoming album Soused, but there hasn’t been any actual music from the release. That changes today with a new trailer that teases about two minutes of music, and a look at the album art above. At first it sounds exactly how you’d expect. There’s Sunn-style guitar drone rumbling to introduce Walker’s baritone murmuring in what sounds like Latin, but may just be some warped appropriation of it. There’s strange imagery that reminds me of the black muck in Under The Skin before settling on the blurry image of an open hand. Then gradually you realize the hand is making a fist, and after that moment all hell breaks loose. Drums explode into the picture, guitars start riffing, and Walker shouting and screaming with an immediacy that you got in the fiercest moments of his 2012 album Bish Bosch. It doesn’t exactly sound like Sunn O))) or what we’ve heard yet from Walker, but it does sound incredible. Watch it below.
