Screaming Females playing Hoboken before multi-continent tour that includes Asbury Park (updated 2015 dates)
Jan 26, 2015 10:46am | Brooklyn Vegan

Not long after Screaming Females announced a 2nd upcoming Brooklyn show, the NJ band announced a ton more tour dates in support of "Rose Mountain" (their forthcoming record which is pictured above).

The new tour includes an April 4th show at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, NJ, which is also the state they'll play THIS FRIDAY NIGHT (1/30) as part of a show at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken with Glazer ("Free admission for Stevens students [bring your ID!], $10 for everyone else)." You can also still get tickets for the Brooklyn late show which, like the early show, also has Priests, Tenement, and Vacation on the bill.

All tour dates, including a Chicago show at Empty Bottle, are listed under their new video for new single "Criminal Image", below...

Stream Mount Eerie Sauna
Jan 26, 2015 10:43am | StereoGum

It’s been nearly three years since Phil Elverum released the lonely, majestic Ocean Roar, his last album as Mount Eerie. Next week, he’ll follow it up with Sauna, his latest piece of desolate, beautiful, lo-fi personal-apocalypse blues. We’ve heard the early tracks “This,” “Dragon,” and “Sauna,” and they’re all distinct and lovely and soul-crushing in that way that only Elverum can pull off. And right now, you can stream the entire album at NPR.

Sauna is out 2/9 on P.W. Elverum & Sun.






UK shoegazers Leave the Planet releasing new 7" & video (watch), playing six NYC shows & other East Coast dates
Jan 26, 2015 10:42am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Bill Pearis

Sharing a love of Slowdive, Felt and Field Mice, London based pair Nathalie Bruno and Jack Milwaukee (who is from Italy, just for the record) began working on music together which soon turned into an actual band, Leave the Planet. If they are getting off this rock, they're doing it gently, in beautiful fashion. This is shoegaze at its most glistening. Having only released a few songs, as well as a lovely cover of Galaxie 500's "Strange," Leave the Planet are now signed to Kanine Records and will release new single "Winter Sleep" on February 3. We've got the premiere of that song's video which was directed by Milwaukee. You can watch it below.

Leave the Planet will be visiting the East Coast next month where they'll play a handful of shows, including six in NYC:

Wednesday Feb. 4 @ Cake Shop with Wildhoney, Dead Leaf Echo, and Beliefs

Thursday Feb. 5 @ Shea Stadium with Breakfast in Furs, Lost Boy, and Chimes

Wednesday Feb. 11 @ Pianos with Cosmonaut, The Jaguar Club, Captain Baby, and Night Squirrel

Saturday Feb. 14 @ Brooklyn Nite Bazaar (FREE show) with Futurebirds, and Steve Gunn

Sunday Feb. 15 @ Baby's Alright with more TBA


Girlpool Chinatown Video
Jan 26, 2015 10:36am | StereoGum

The frenetic energy of Girlpool’s “Blah Blah Blah” and the deep, bluesy grooves of “Jane” originally drew my attention to the L.A. duo, but their new single “Chinatown” veers off in a different direction. The track has a slower, sweeping pace, and the video of Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker goofing off in the song’s namesake neighborhood of Los Angeles captures a specific feeling of wandering with no real purpose. Sometimes those unplanned hang out sessions end up being the memories we treasure most when we’re looking back.

Video Premiere: Terrorista Dirty Smile
Jan 26, 2015 10:35am | CMJ

Canadian twosome Terrorista are in the midst of releasing four, two-song cassette singles over six months, which should lead right up to the comeback of the CD-3. But for now, dig into the video for the tune Dirty Smile off the Green Tape, out February 17, following on the heels of the recently released Pink Tape and Purple Tape.

Directed by Emma Arkell and Genevieve Latour, the clip’s look draws from the over-saturated colors and scratchy animation alt-rock era look, as does Terrorista’s sound, a swirl of early ’90s grunge and shoegaze. The duo adds, or rather subtracts the over-reverb usually utilized in this genre today, churning out the loud-quiet-loud loop-de-doop with a sure swagger. “Dirty Smile” also features backup vocals from Owen Buckland from Fuss.

Check out the premiere of Dirty Smile below. And if you’re in Toronto on February 21, they’ve got the Green Tape release party at The Central.

The post Video Premiere: Terrorista – “Dirty Smile” appeared first on CMJ.

In anticipation, Cronin’s let loose a new song called “Made My Mind Up”. A life-affirming power pop number, it’s packed with spirited guitar solos and jaunty piano. Listen in below.

MCIII Tracklist:
01. Turn Around

03. Say
04. Feel Like
05. I’ve Been Loved

Walter Schreifels & the Dead Heavens streaming a-side of new single (listen), announce Saint Vitus residency
Jan 26, 2015 10:23am | Brooklyn Vegan

Walter Schreifels has to be one of the most consistently busy musicians in rock. He was a member of a few legendary bands, including but not limited to Gorilla Biscuits and Quicksand, and those bands have played live as recently as November's Fun Fun Fun Fest and New Year's Eve in NYC, respectively. He's also got an ongoing solo career and two recently-formed bands: Vanishing Life (with members of Trail of Dead) and The Dead Heavens (with former members of Youth of Today, White Zombie and Cults). Vanishing Life put out a single last fall, and now we're finally getting a studio-recorded taste of Dead Heavens.

They've already played live a few times, including a CMJ show (pics) (co-presented by BrooklynVegan) and a Shea show in November, and now they've announced that they'll release the "History In My Hands" b/w "36 Chambers" 7 on February 17 via Thrill Me (pre-order). Walter has said this band is inspired by Cream and Black Sabbath, and there's definitely some of Clapton's Cream-era wah guitar throughout the song, but it's a bit lighter than that description may make you think. Check it out below, via Stereogum.

The Dead Heavens have also announced a NYC residency happening in February at Saint Vitus. Here's the schedule:

Four Tet (as Percussions) releases surprise new album listen
Jan 26, 2015 10:05am | Cosequence Of Sound

2014 saw a flurry of activity from DJ/producer Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet. In addition to remixing Sia and Lana Del Rey, he contributed to a film soundtrack, put out a handful of standalone singles, and teamed up with Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry, Robyn, and Rome Fortune. This year may be a similarly prolific one for Hebden, as he just dropped a surprise new album under his Percussions moniker.

The 11-track effort collects Percussions material from 2011-2014, including the previously released “Ascii Bot”, “Sext”, and “Blatant Water Cannon”. From hypnotic, minimal spells (“February 2014″) to percussive thumpers (“KHLHI”) to chaotic, thwacking romps (“Rabbit Songs”), the LP encompasses a wide range of moods, structures, and styles. Listen in below via Bandcamp.

2011 until 2014 by Percussions

2011 until 2014 Tracklist:
01. February 2014
02. March 2013
03. Blatant Water Cannon
04. Sext
05. October 2011
06. KHLHI
07. November 2011
08. Bird Songs
09. Rabbit Songs
10. Ascii Bot

Operators Ecstasy In My House (Stereogum Premiere)
Jan 26, 2015 10:04am | StereoGum

Operators, Dan Boeckner’s synth-pop band with keyboardist Devojka and Divine Fits bandmate Sam Brown on drums, released EP 1 last summer. Whereas lead single “True” had a swaggering sway to it, the new “Ecstasy In My House” is built on a rippling up-tempo synth part that will make your heart race — and, possibly, your fist pump. Hearing Boeckner’s trademark rock ’n’ roll howl against an entirely synthetic backdrop is somehow both surreal and totally natural. It’s a far cry from Wolf Parade, but it works. Listen below.

The Besnard Lakes played Rough Trade with USA Out of Vietnam (pics, setlist)
Jan 26, 2015 10:00am | Brooklyn Vegan

photos by Greg Cristman; words by Bill Pearis

"I heard New York got a little snow last last night...you fucking pussies!" Jace Lacek, leader of The Besnard Lakes, was joking with the Rough Trade crowd about the inch or so accumulation on the ground Saturday (1/24). "It was, like, negative 31 centigrade when we left Montreal, that's about where Celsius and Fahrenheit meet." I reason to leave freezing Montreal is as good an excuse to tour as any. The band don't have a new album -- though they said they're working on it now for an end-of-2015 release -- but seemed energized on Saturday, maybe the best I've ever seen them.

Few bands do this sort of widescreen rock so well, with so little pretense or cheese. Their 2010 album was titled The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night which is a fitting descriptor. "Like the Ocean, Like the Innocent," which opens that album, remains the best example of what it is they do so well: giant waves of guitar, soaring leads and vocals, all crashing over you. This was a new lineup of the band, with longtime guitarist Richard White retiring from touring and The High Dials' Robbie MacArthur in his place, plus new keyboardist Sheenah Ko augmenting Lacek, bassist singer Olga Goreas and drummer Kevin Laing. They genuinely sounded fantastic, with a simple but effective LED lite-brite-type light show. They don't really need much.

Opening on this tour is fellow Montreal band...


Amsterdams Awakenings Festival announces Richie Hawtin, Nina Kraviz, Jeff Mills and more for 2015

Virgin Forest Dream Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Jan 26, 2015 9:52am | StereoGum

When he’s not touring as the keyboardist for Phosphorescent, Scott Stapleton serves as frontman and songwriter for the Brooklyn-based band Virgin Forest, which also includes members of Deer Tick. After breaking his hand in a fight in Germany while on tour with Phosphorescent, Stapleton returned to his native Florida to convalesce, and, as these things go, he ended up writing a whole new album with his good hand. While the band’s first two records offered a dusty take on American rock and roll music, the upcoming VF3 finds Virgin Forest exploring some nocturnal electronic textures, described by Stapleton as “a meeting of early Massive Attack and Bertie Higgins.” The new video for the aptly titled song “Dream,” shot by Matthew Walker in hazy, dreamlike black and white, is a moody affair that wordlessly but powerfully documents the story of a drag queen and her ex-lover. Watch the video and check out the album’s full tracklist below.
