Big Ups Not Today (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 30, 2014 10:40am | StereoGum

New York punks Big Ups made a really great debut album called Eighteen Hours Of Static earlier this year, and they’re about to follow it up by dropping a split 7″ with Brooklyn’s Washer. We’ve already posted “Rash,” the first Big Ups song on that split. And now we’ve got the other one. “Not Today” is a fearsome, stormy piece of post-hardcore animosity, and it will make your heart beat a little faster. Listen to it below.

Following Kieran Loftus’s excellent ‘All Black Outfit’ release, Paradise Rhythm have put together a stonking collection of remixes.

stream The Jazz June's "Short Changed" from their new LP
Oct 30, 2014 10:33am | Brooklyn Vegan

'90s-era emo vets The Jazz June are less than two weeks away from the release of their Evan Weiss-produced After the Earthquake (due 11/11 via Topshelf), their first album of new material in 12 years. We've already posted three tracks from it, and now we've got the premiere of a fourth, "Short Changed." Unlike their labelmates and fellow '90s band Braid, who's new record mostly sounds like classic Braid, there are few signs on "Short Changed" and the other singles that this is the band who made The Medicine. That album basically perfected The Jazz June's brand of emo, and presumably feeling like they had no more to say in that style, its followup and (up until now) final album Better Off Without Air was a much more experimental record.

Now they've reinvented themselves once again. "Short Changed," like previous singles "Over Underground" and "Ain't It Strange," is fuzzy indie rock that sounds more like it would have been on Merge in '92 than Initial Records in 2000. And since that early '90s indie rock style is fully back thanks to countless younger bands pulling from it, the new Jazz June stuff sounds totally modern. If you're already a fan of the band you probably don't need any convincing to listen to this, but if you're unfamiliar it's a fine starting point. Check it out below.

The Jazz June just headlined our CMJ showcase and they have a FFF Nites show comin...


The Growlers Good Advice Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 30, 2014 10:33am | StereoGum

The Orange County-based band the Growlers released their latest record, Chinese Fountain, back in September, and today they’ve shared a video for the single “Good Advice.” We caught the Growlers last weekend at Beach Goth Fest, an event that the band has thrown for the past three years alongside other surf- and psych-derivative acts. In the “Good Advice” video, the band performs to a scant audience of wide-eyed evangelists in a creepy clapboard pioneer church. Lead singer Brooks Nielsen waves a snake around as he presents his sermon. Check out the band’s European tour dates and watch the video below.

Phish launch streaming subscription service LivePhish+

With Beats reportedly being folded into iTunes due to falling sales just five months after being acquired by Apple it looks as though the market for new music streaming services isn’t exactly the most promising. However, that hasn’t stopped legendary jam band Phish from trying their hand at the business.

This week, they unveiled an updated version of their LivePhish app, which comes with the option of a new subscription service. Dubbed LivePhish+, a $9.99/month subscription (or $99.99 per year) will earn fans access to the entire LivePhish catalog, including recordings of recent shows, side-projects, studio albums, and any archival material.

Although the subscription service costs money, fans can opt to just use the basic LivePhish app free-of-charge. The app allows fans to stream already purchased music and create playlists.

For the sake of comparison, Spotify has most, if not all, of Phish’s discography readily available, along with a variety of live shows. Plus, when you consider their newly discounted Family Plan ($14.99 for two users/month, $19.99 for three, $24.99 for four, etc.), it looks to be a pretty swell deal. If you’re an avid Phish follower, however, and want more beyond what Spotify has to offer, then the LivePhish+ subscription might be worth a try. It makes you wonder, though: How long before other bands especially those who shun Spotify (hi, Thom Yor...


watch T-Pain sing in NPR's office without auto-tune
Oct 30, 2014 10:23am | Brooklyn Vegan

NPR writes:

T-Pain's fingerprints are all over pop and R&B and hip-hop. He wasn't the first musician to use Auto-Tune as an instrument -- he noticed it on a Jennifer Lopez remix, and remembers "Deep" well -- but it was, as he says, his style. For a while, in the mid-2000s, he lived at the top of the charts. He dominated that brief moment of our lives when ringtones were a thing. He was celebrated as an innovator, and he happily took his talents where he was invited, which was everywhere.

But somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. "People felt like I was using it to sound good," says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. "But I was just using it to sound different."

He just turned 30, but T-Pain has already done enough to drop a greatest hits album next week. We asked him if he'd grace the Tiny Desk without any embellishment or effects to show what's really made his career: his voice, and those songs.

How did it turn out? Watch below...

Nils Frahm plays two new songs in Resident Advisor Sessions video, touring with Dawn of Midi (dates, streams)
Oct 30, 2014 10:15am | Brooklyn Vegan

Nils Frahm released Spaces almost a year ago, a record of sonically adventurous pieces that meld the classical and electronic-music worlds. If you haven't checked it out you can stream it via YouTube below. He's been busy working on new material as well and performs two new songs on a 'Resident Advisor Sessions' video you can watch below.

That video also gives a sense of what it's like to see Frahm in concert, which you can do in real life as he's touring this fall with the similarly minded Dawn of Midi. That includes NYC at St. Paul & St. Andrew Church on November 21 which is presented by Wordless Music. Tickets are on sale now.

Nils was last through in the spring. All dates are listed, along with the Resident Advisor Sessions video and album stream, below...

BLOSSOM STUPID THINGS
Oct 30, 2014 10:14am | Abeano

London trio BLOSSOM don’t want you to know who they are just yet; instead, they want you to take a wander through the pop culture of your childhood while you listen to their soaring fuzz-pop. Without their faces in the mix, the result is a kind of hypnotic episode directed by John Hughes, as Freaks & Geeks, My So Called Life, Saved By The Bell, The Breakfast Club and more drift through the video to BLOSSOM’s second ever track, ‘Stupid Things.’ The song itself, with its swirl of guitars, propulsive rhythm and super sweet hook “I don’t wanna go home, I just wanna be with you,” is its own slice of teen nostalgia, all bubbling restlessness and oh so romantic angst. Watch below – and be sure to head to BLOSSOM’s website, where there might just be more than meets the eye.


Nas Joins Run The Jewels At RTJ2 Release Party, Shares Dilla-Produced The Season
Oct 30, 2014 10:05am | StereoGum

Last night, Run The Jewels found a great way to celebrate the release of their monster sophomore album RTJ2: They hosted a screening of The Warriors, basically the best movie ever, at Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema. At the screening, they had a special guest: Nas, whose Mass Appeal label released RTJ2. And the old king took the opportunity to share “The Season,” a new track that has him rapping authoritatively over the late J Dilla’s “Gobstopper” instrumental. The fan-made video isn’t exactly the best way to hear the song, which isn’t scheduled for any sort of release right now, but you can hear it well enough in the video. Check it out below.

Soft Fangs Dog Park (Stereogum Premiere)
Oct 30, 2014 10:03am | StereoGum

Soft Fangs is John Lutkevich, a Massachusetts native recording tremendous music in Brooklyn. “Dog Park,” from a five-song cassette EP coming soon on Seagreen, is almost certainly the most beautiful song you’ll hear today. It’s got the feel of mid-period Elliott Smith — the gently cooed downcast vocal, the lo-fi production, the effortless interplay between acoustic fingerpicking and scrappy drums — but it blooms into something more like Sparklehorse, clouds of white noise and melody swelling up around Lutkevich and whisking him away. Press play.

Watch Boogies day-in-the-life video for Bitter Raps
Oct 30, 2014 10:01am | Fact Magazine

‘Bitter Raps’ is the centerpiece of the promising newcomer’s debut mixtape.

Boogie emerged earlier this year with Thirst 48, a stunning debut in the Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City tradition. The tape’s highlight is ‘Bitter Raps’, a laidback list of complaints that targets social media, sound-alike rappers and the potholes of daily life; in kind, the song’s video is a gorgeously-shot collection of hood flick footage.

Watch the video below and download Thirst 48 now. If you want more, there’s even a T-shirt that goes with it.


Watch Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Play Stagger Lee In An Austin City Limits Web Exclusive
Oct 30, 2014 9:47am | StereoGum

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds performed at Austin City Limits back in July, and a truncated version of that set will be aired on the ACL broadcast this weekend. Cave and the band played a slew of crowd favorites, including “Tupelo” and “Red Right Hand.” Their rendition of the classic American folk song “Stagger Lee,” which they covered on the 1996 album Murder Ballads, will not be included in the televised broadcast, but we’ve got that outtake for you to see today. It’s unsurprising that Cave’s performance is stellar, but the uncomfortably well-lit crowd of adoring fans makes the video all the more enjoyable to watch. Check out the setlist and watch “Stagger Lee” below.
