Q&A: Allo Darlins Elizabeth Morris On Their Great New Album, Her Move To Italy, And The Story Behind History Lessons (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 29, 2014 12:01pm | StereoGum

We Come From The Same Place, out next week, marks three straight excellent LPs by London indie-pop quartet Allo Darlin’, and with new single “History Lessons” they’re also now three-for-three on teaser tracks from the new album. The band’s Australian-born, Italy-based frontwoman Elizabeth Morris knows how to capture the imagination with a simple, universal turn of phrase, and her bandmates are excellent at conjuring jangly, propulsive guitar-pop to carry the sentiment home. “History Lessons” is another example of Allo Darlin’ pulling off just such a feat. Morris uses this generation’s ever-accelerating nostalgia craze as a jump-off point to explore the ways we as individuals build upon and move beyond our past. It’s a canny snapshot, both personal and universal, and Morris delivers her vocal with a wistful approachability that accentuates the song’s themes; it’s both an echo of bygone indie-pop and a personal twist distinctly her own. Morris discussed “History Lessons” and much more in a free-ranging and friendly Skype conversation last week. Below, read on for enlightening insight into Allo Darlin’s songwriting and the stories behind We Come From The Same Place, plus hear “History Lessons” for the first time.

Hear An Alternate Mix Of Led Zeppelins The Rain Song From Houses Of The Holy Reissue
Sep 29, 2014 11:54am | StereoGum

It’s amazing to think that there’s any sort of still-unreleased Led Zeppelin music lying around after all these years. But next month, the band will reissue two of their classics, 1971′s Led Zeppelin IV and 1973′s Houses Of The Holy. Both reissues include bonus tracks, and the Houses Of The Holy reissue includes an alternate “mix minus piano” version of “The Rain Song,” the towering ballad from that album. Listen to that alternate version of the song, which Jimmy Page calls “a good blend of everything thats actually being played,” below.

Kasabian, Bo Ningen @ Terminal 5: September 27, 2014
Sep 29, 2014 11:50am | CMJ


Last Saturday night at Terminal 5 in Manhattan, the London-based, Japanese acid-punk band Bo Ningen electrified the crowd as support act for longtime British alt-rock heroes, Kasabian. Their incredible live show is one of those things you have to see with your own eyes to fully appreciate—their infinite hair waving all over the stage in time with their stage-stalking moves and the intensely jittery, shrieky rock sound. The big venue was packed as hell for Kasabian, but the crowd won’t soon forget Bo Ningen. You will have a couple chances to catch them during CMJ Music Marathon in a few weeks, and we’d suggest you capitalize on those chances.

That said, Kasabian are no slouches. Last time they played NYC was over two years ago at this same venue, and the patience of their fans was rewarded in spades. The band returned with not a lick of power lost and destroyed Terminal 5 once again. Starting their show with Bumblebeee from their latest album, 48:13 (Columbia), and tossing in a Fatboy Slim cover (Praise You) along the way, their adoring and quickly sweaty fans danced and sang along nonstop through the 16-song set, even on their way out at the end and into the middle of 56th and 11th Ave. Though active since 1997, Kasabian don’t get to these shores much, and those live lags apparently leave their fans rabid with excitement.

Song : Mister Lies : High (ft. Harrison Lipton)
Sep 29, 2014 11:48am | My Old Kentucky Blog

As mentioned in the release of his excellent song “Deepend”, producer artist Nick Zanca aka Mister Lies has his second LP, Shadows, due out October 28th via Orchid Tapes. His second song from the release, “High”, falls in the same emotional spectrum as that song and features vocals from Harrison Lipton and Bridgette Lemoine. The song starts off unassuming enough only to culminate around the 3:30 minute mark into something truly captivating. We highly recommend pre-ordering it here on limited edition black and royal vinyl. Listen below.


Black Sabbath announce plans for one more album, and a final tour
Sep 29, 2014 11:45am | Cosequence Of Sound

Last summer, the original lineup of Black Sabbath — Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler — roared back to life after some 30-plus years apart. In rather short order, the trio snagged their first-ever No. 1 album with 13, toured the world for nearly a full year, and even celebrated by winning a couple Grammys back in January. Now, in an interview with Metal Hammer (via Rolling Stone), frontman Osbourne talks the metal icons’ future plans, which include “one more album, and a final tour.”

Despite a less-than-savory history together, which most recently included drama with ex-drummer Bill Ward, Osbourne said the band parted ways after this year’s run of dates feeling totally positive. “Once the dust settled after the last tour we started discussing the idea because we were getting asked about it all the time,” he explained. “I said to Sharon, ‘What’s going on? Because if there’s no more Sabbath I want to get on with my own thing again,’ and she came back and said ‘Let me look into it.'”

Osbourne added, “Three weeks later, I asked her about it again, and she said ‘Oh, I still have to talk to so and so…’ And I said, ‘Sharon, I ain’t fucking 21 anymore. If we’re going to do [it], I want to do it before I’m 70. Time isn’t on our side.’ So she made the call an...


What the hell am I doing here? Thom Yorke on Dragon's Den - The Transcript
Sep 29, 2014 11:44am | Drowned In Sound

Evan Davis: Welcome to Dragons Den. First to face the dragons this week are Thom and Nigel from Oxford. Theyre here to ask for investment in their radical new music distribution scheme which they believe could be more successful than Napster, Spotify, Neil Youngs Pono and even CDWOW.

Thom and Nigel enter the den. Thom is wearing scruffy jeans, a dishevelled head of greying hair and an Aphex Twin t-shirt (I Care Because You Do, not SYRO). Nigels got a suit on. Thom is staring at the floor, fiddling with his stubble, muttering under his breath in a high-pitched voice and making the odd bleeping noise.

Deborah Meaden: (raises her eyebrows, as if to say Im already more out than Captain Oates final breath)

Thom Yorke: Mumble mumble clickety bleep beep... Choked Egggggs Monoxide Luuuung ... brrrrr mumble click

Nigel Godrich: Dragons, I must apologise for my colleague. The only way he can cope with his crippling social anxieties is to pretend hes robot. But a robot with feelings.

Deborah: Sorry, can I just stop you there. A robot with feelings? That isnt a robot.

Nigel: Then an android, maybe? Can androids have feelings?

Duncan Bannatyne: Dont ask me. Do ah look like Arthur C. fuckin Clarke?

Thom: Click clicck bleep bleep Slippping Chimney Kknife Sardines brrrrr g g g

San Francisco's Cool Ghouls releasing new LP (stream a track)
Sep 29, 2014 11:41am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

San Francisco's Cool Ghouls straddle a line between the present and the past. In tight with the current garage/psych scene, their sound also hearkens back to the days of Haight-Ashbury scene. Their sophomore album, A Swirling Fire Burning Through The Rhye, is out November 11 via Empty Cellar and was recorded live to tape by Sonny Smith of Sunsets fame and mixed and mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, etc etc). The new album's opening cut, "And it Grows," is a great example of what Cool Ghouls do, ramblin' psych with twangy harmonies. It's a good one and makes its premiere in this post.

The band's only upcoming show at the moment is a Halloween show at SF's Thee Parkside. Hopefully they'll be heading East at some point. "And it Grows" plus another track stream off the new album, below...

Alt-J covers Disclosures Latch watch
Sep 29, 2014 11:41am | Cosequence Of Sound

In support of their newly released sophomore album, This Is All Yours, indie rockers Alt-J recently stopped by BBC1’s Live Lounge for an in-studio performance. During the hour-long session, the band unfurled a brand new cover of Disclosures “Latch”.

Here, Alt-J gives the Sam Smith-assisted radio smash a subdued and fairly bizarre rendition. With a drum machine beat and wobbly synths, lead vocalist Joe Newman slightly changes the melody (all while reading the song’s lyrics), unable to throw his voice around with the deftness of Smith. Despite some not-quite-there harmonies, it’s still an intriguing listen and a refreshing take on a track that appears to be everywhere.

Stars No One Is Lost
Sep 29, 2014 11:32am | StereoGum

The title track from Stars’ upcoming seventh album, No One Is Lost, is almost uncharacteristically chipper. The Canadian synthpop group recorded their new one in a studio one floor above a discotheque, and it appears some of that celebratory mentality has seeped into Stars’ work. The single falls somewhere between Stars’ typically moodier sound and a full-blown dance anthem, complete with a super-catchy chorus. Listen.
