Hozier Do I Wanna Know? (Arctic Monkeys Cover)
Sep 15, 2014 10:42am | StereoGum

If there’s one thing buzzworthy young UK artists love doing, it’s covering other young UK artists in the BBC’s Live Lounge. That’s what Irish troubadour Hozier did with the Arctic Monkeys’ AM highlight “Do I Wanna Know?” — a tune also covered by Chvrches and Sam Smith. The original is a huffing, snarling, sad-eyed beast of a song, but Hozier drains it of its blues-rock swagger and converts it into an emotional folk-pop ballad akin to something by Damien Rice. It’s pretty, and Hozier certainly puts his own stamp on it, but we can argue in the comments about whether it’s an improvement on the original. (It’s not.) Listen below.


Half Waif made a video, playing shows including Rooftop Films tonight
Sep 15, 2014 10:41am | Brooklyn Vegan

Brooklyn art pop musician Nandi Rose Plunkett, aka Half Waif, released her debut album, KOTEKAN earlier this summer and now she's given its single "Ceremonial" the video treatment courtesy of director Grace Gardner. Nandi says the song "is the shadowy secrets, the enticing mysteries, that go on behind every mundane day... the ceremonies behind the daily tasks. The ceremonies are our basic and primal urges, constantly pulsating behind our pretty everyday selves." The video premieres in this post and can be watched below.

Half Waif also has a few shows coming up. First, she'll play a solo set at Rooftop Films TONIGHT (9/15). That's free and starts at 7:30 PM. She's also got another NYC show happening Thursday (9/18) at Glasslands with Pinegrove, Una Lux and Poor Remy. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the new video, below...

Watch: SBTRKT – “Look Away” (Feat. Caroline Polachek) Interactive Video
Sep 15, 2014 10:40am | CMJ

SBTRKT’s new album, Wonder Where We Land, drops in less than a month, and the singles just keep comin’. We’ve already heard Temporary View with Sampha, New Dorp, New York with Ezra Koenig, War Drums with Warpaint and Higher with Raury.

The album’s first video isn’t for any of those songs—it’s for another new single, this time featuring Chairlift’s Caroline Polacheck. The design collective Resn is responsible for the interactive clip, which uses your computer camera to lock you into a staring contest with an animated face who keeps avoiding your gaze. You can listen to the cluttered, jazzy Look Away below or check out the interactive video here.

Shonen Knife @ The Wick 9/12/2014

Japanese cult band Shonen Knife -- rocking from Osaka since 1981 -- are currently in the US supporting their new album, Overdrive, that finds them putting a bit of '70s glam sparkling on their signature punky pop. Their tour hit NYC over the weekend with a show at The Wick on Friday (9/12) that was well matched with Habibi and fellow Japanese band (living in NYC), The Suzan. Pictures from the night as well as video of Shonen Knife performing Economic Crisis" and "Antonio Baka Guy" are in this post.

From here, Shonen Knife's tour heads west, before returning to NYC for CMJ next month. Stay tuned for more details about CMJ shows. More pics, plus video from their show at The Wick, below...

MOKB Premiere : Mall Walk : Teen Missing
Sep 15, 2014 10:34am | My Old Kentucky Blog

October 14th will see the release of the eponymous debut EP from Mall Walk, the brooding rock band hailing from Oakland, CA. It will be released via singer-guitarist Rob I. Millers label, Vacant Stare Records, and was produced by Monte Vallier, who most recently had a hand in Weekend’s solid LP from last year, Jinx. The first song from the EP is “Teen Missing”. The song starts off as a thoughtful interplay between the bass and drums, only to burn apart under dissident screeching guitar work that will carry you back to the best of the early ’90s. Expect to hear more of this promising trio. Listen below.

The New Pornographers drummer Kurt Dahle announces departure from band
Sep 15, 2014 10:29am | Cosequence Of Sound

Kurt Dahle, founding member and longtime drummer of The New Pornographers, has announced his departure from the band. The news comes just two weeks after New Pornographers released their latest album, Brill Bruisers.

In a statement, the band said: “Kurt Dahle is leaving the New Pornographers. It has been a great 15 years playing with an amazing drummer, singer and performer. We wish him the best.”

“Everything is still full steam ahead with the band and we look forward to continued rocking and singing of songs,” the band added.

The New Pornographers are set to kick off a full-fledged North American tour next month. See the full schedule here, and watch their recent performance at NYC’s Brill Building below.

Stream GOAT Commune
Sep 15, 2014 10:26am | StereoGum

The Swedish band GOAT make a wild and percussive form of psychedelic rock that draws its rhythmic influences from far and wide: Afrobeat! Disco! Stoner-metal! Go-go! If you ever get a chance to see them live, for the love of god, do so. They wear masks and jump around and turn an acid-rock rave-up into a tribal ritual, and it’s quite a thing to witness. But their records are nearly as lively and strange and exciting as those shows. Their 2012 debut World Music was a total monster that resisted any kind of categorization with unmatched fervor. They’re about to follow it up with the sophomore LP Commune, which just slightly smooths out that first album’s rough edges but which plays like a 39-minute feral whoop anyway. We posted the early track “Hide From The Sun,” and you really need to hear the whole album. And fortuitously enough, the whole thing is streaming at NPR.

Commune is out 9/23 on Sub Pop.

New Pornographers Drummer Kurt Dahle Quits The Band

Pixies Ring The Bell Video
Sep 15, 2014 10:19am | StereoGum

Earlier this year, the Pixies released their divisive new collection Indie Cindy and have been putting out music videos intermittently since the their first reunion EP. The latest is for “Ring The Bell” and it was directed by Lital Mizel and Adi Frimmerman, two Pixies fans who recorded a viral video of themselves lip-synching to “Hey” back in 2005. The band met the women at a show in Israel and let them direct and star in their newest music video. The clip for “Ring The Bell” sees them dumpster-diving and hanging out in graffiti-filled abandoned buildings before ending up at a circus-like party in a forest. Watch below.


Track Premiere: Weird Womb – “Weird Womb”
Sep 15, 2014 10:18am | CMJ

Weird Womb

Self-titled songs are the dominion of bands who exhibit either powerful personal intent or self-effacing humor, both of which this Brooklyn band has in spades. Live, Weird Womb can be a drunken, trip over their own chords, drunken mess who then suddenly cut into a two-minute, scalp-ripping, bent-trash blast. Their new EP, Laziness, out September 23 on Midriff, impressively stomps on that scalp-ripping side. We’ve been all over this boozy bunch for a while, and now we’ve got the premiere of that self-titled tune today. Check it below.

Check Out Arcade Fires Original Funeral Art And The Story Behind It
Sep 15, 2014 10:16am | StereoGum

We spent the weekend celebrating the 10th anniversary of Arcade Fire’s Funeral, and we weren’t the only ones. Billboard’s tribute included an interview with Tracy Maurice, the artist behind the album’s cover art. Maurice — who also did Neon Bible’s cover art and that much-shared Funeral mural in Brooklyn — shared early drafts of the artwork, which you can see up above. She also told the story of the artwork’s creation:


Nekrofilth on tour, playing Acheron tonight (dates, LP stream)
Sep 15, 2014 10:14am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey

Cleveland nasties Nekrofilth are currently on tour. The filthy punkified death/thrashers are spreading their putridity across places like Chicago, Toronto, and Montreal. Tonight (9/15), they'll play NYC's the Acheron with Skull and Crypter for an Invisible Oranges-presented show. Tickets are available now. The remaining dates of their tour appear below.

Nekrofilth have built up a fanbase of sleaze-hungry metalheads that like it old, rotten, and worm-eaten. The band hit a new high/low with 2013's Devil's Breath, a furiously charging wall of buzz that was equal parts Repulsion and Macabre and early Dwarves. The song title "I'm a Degenerate" should give you an idea as far as the lyrical themes are concerned. The band's members have logged time in Nunslaughter, Apartment 213, and Masakari. You can check out an interview we did with Zack Rose on Invisible Oranges late last year. Bring your best grave digging attire and leave your conscience at the door.

All of the dates along with Nekrofilth's Devil's Breath appear below.

Watch Mount Eerie Play New Song Dragon
Sep 15, 2014 10:09am | StereoGum

In 2012, Mount Eerie gave us two excellent albums — Clear Moon and Ocean’s Roar — and for his next trick, Phil Elverum will release a double album called Sauna. Now you can watch him perform a Sauna track called “Dragon,” recorded during an acoustic session for the Pinball Session. The format gives us a good chance to soak in his lyrics, which are steeped in nature imagery; though considering the way Elverum works, this could end up sounding more like a black metal song by the time we hear it on the album. Watch it below and look for Mount Eerie on tour.
