Tame Impala Bassist Takes 'Lonerism' to Heart, Leaves Band...
May 20, 2013 2:15pm | The Daily Swarm
Tame Impala bassist Nick Allbrook has left the band to focus on his other musical projects. The split wasn’t your traditional hate-spewing war of words, as Allbrook and the other members are separating on good terms. Allbrook will be replaced by Cam Avery who plays in POND – the psychedelia-tinged project of Allbrook. He is also founder of The Growls, a band that has frequently opened for Tame Impala on tour. In other words: they’re keeping it all in the family and they still love each other. Awww! Via Paste:

Action Bronson shares bizarre
May 20, 2013 1:57pm | Fact Magazine
Collaborative effort Saab Stories is due out in early June.
Directed Jason Goldwatch, the video for ‘Strictly 4 My Jeeps’ finds the Queens Ghostface aficionado lifting weights, doing cartwheels, hanging out with rap-absurdist RiFF RaFF, and undertaking some impressive culinary challenges (all in the company of some BBW models).

Young Wonder is an electro-pop duo from Cork, Ireland who have a mastery for crafting lush, skittering soundscapes. “Electrified” combines big, bright synths and features lead singer Rachel Koeman’s hitting the hook’s high notes while harmonizing with monster-sound vocal distortion. Its video was directed by fellow Irishmen, Brendan Canty and Conal Thomson of the art collective Feel Good Lost, who have worked with Passion Pit and Keep Shelley In Athens, among others. Says Canty (not of Fugazi and Rites Of Spring fame) of the clip, “We and the band talked a lot about creating a more montage-based, pop-style video that really captures the personality of the band, their environment, the track, and the new record whilst still including that ethereal imagery that we are known for.” Check out the dark but spritely video below.

Roomrunner streaming debut LP, reschedule release show

Roomrunner at WBAR-B-Q 2013 (more by Amanda
As mentioned, Baltimore's Roomrunner are releasing their debut LP, Ideal Cities, next week (5/28) via Fan Death, but you can now listen to it ahead of its release date at SPIN. When last writing about the album, I said:
The album has the clearest production of anything the band has put out to date, but it's far from overly polished. Guitar riffs pile on top of each other in a Siamese Dream/In Utero sort of way, putting Roomrunner in a league of other current bands like California X and Milk Music that actually make the term "grunge" sound appealing again.As mentioned, they'll be playing a few dates in June with Mikal Cronin (who is touring in support of his excellent new LP, MCII) and Shannon and the Clams, including the NYC show happening on June 20 at Ballroom (tickets). Around that time, Roomrunner will also play a record release show on June 13 at Death by Audio, where they were initially supposed to play a release show in May but cancelled.
Updated dates are listed, along with a video of them playing "Bait Car" at Death by Audio, below...

Huh? Linkin Park's Chester Bennington Fronting Stone Temple Pilots...
May 20, 2013 1:44pm | The Daily Swarm
Linkin’s Park’s Chester Bennington is now the lead singer for the Stone Temple Pilots. While Bennington still claims that Linkin Park is his top priority, new promo shots of STP give us the feeling that they’re in it for the long haul. Via Stereogum:

Last month, Cassie, the queen of breathy-robot electro-R&B, released her insanely great RockaByeBaby mixtape, which would still be the year’s best mixtape if Chance The Rapper’s Acid Rap hadn’t come along. The tape ended with the twinkly, luxurious “All My Love.” And now the Brooklyn dance producer Kingdom has reworked the track, though he didn’t exactly overhaul it. Instead, he stretched out its titanic computer-groove to nearly twice its length, adding in some subtle touches. Listen to his edit below.

Kvelertak @ The Studio at Webster Hall,
5/17/2013 (more by Keith Marlowe)
Kvelertak brought the temperature up a few degrees in the basement of Webster Hall, when the band joined Cancer Bats and Black Tusk as part of a sold-out show at The Studio on May 17. More sweaty, stage-divey, rafter-hang-y pictures are at InvisibleOranges. The show was part of a tour for the Norwegian party-metal crew in celebration of their new LP, Meir, out now.

Bennio Qwerty is a new project with its foundation in the
foundation of one of my favorite bars on the South Side of
Williamsburg, Bar Donna. And “its foundation in the
foundation” is not a typo: guitarist/singer Mike Barron and
bassist Nathan Delffs met onsite-constructing the bar’s
elegant woodwork, discovering a shared love for the likes of
Lungfish, Scott Walker, and Drive Like Jehu while laying the beams.
Barron’s been on these pages already, as guitarist for North
Highlands; before Bennio, Delffs played in Forest Fire, and drummer
Louie Glaser comes from Wise Blood. Bennio’s sound
isn’t really a triangulation of those aforementioned
influences, nor the band members’ previous projects for that
matter. Barron voices intelligent intonations over a rhythmic,
lydian track that’s given a soothing studio treatment,
registering as something like a less mathematically minded Travis
Morrison. Hear it:
watch a new 8-bit video from Old Monk ++ upcoming shows
May 20, 2013 1:30pm | Brooklyn Vegan
by Bill Pearis
Local indie rockers Old Monk are busy finishing the follow-up to 2012's Birds of Belize, a record that should be out in early 2014. Meanwhile, the band have a stopgap single out now on Eenie Meenie, the very catchy "Seymour." We've got the premiere of its video in this post. Using 8-bit graphics it works in references to Pitfall!, plus a slew of classic films (Safety Last, Annie Hall, The Good, the Bad & the Ugly to name three) and was directed/animated by Josh Carrafa who you may know from his Music History Gifs website. You can check it out below.
Old Monk also have a few NYC shows coming up: June 8 at Knitting Factory with The Vansaders, The Marshmallows and The Brooklyn What (tix); then June 18 at Cameo; and June 28 at Ludlow St. club Leftfield. Those dates are listed, along with that video, below.

Watch Action Bronson

Boy, oh boy, are the GIF makers in for a field day. In the new video for “Strictly 4 My Jeeps”, watch as Action Bronson does cartwheels, lifts weights, ride around in his big ass jeep, and play a game of horse with RiFF RAFF before heading home for a mean steak and an Action Bronson-themed ice cream cake. A+ job to everyone involved.
“Strictly 4 My Jeeps” is the first track off Bronson’s collaborative album with wunderkind producer Harry Fraud, Saab Stories. In a recent tweet, Bronson revealed the tape “WILL BE OUT EARLY JUNE 10000000% no matter what.” As always, stay tuned for more.
