Watch Deafheaven Play New Song From The Kettle Unto The Coil At Pitchfork Music Festival
Jul 30, 2014 11:00am | StereoGum

Deafheaven made my favorite album of 2013, and whenever they announce the release of a follow-up, that album will almost definitely top my list of that year’s most anticipated. I don’t expect a new album anytime soon, and I don’t know what to expect of a Deafheaven new album, period, but I’m definitely encouraged by their new song, “From The Kettle Unto The Coil,” which will be released as part of the Adult Swim Singles Series next month, and which they debuted on 7/18 at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago, and played again at Pitchfork Music Festival. The live version from Pitchfork — which you can hear/watch below — is the only version I’ve yet heard, and it’s hard to gauge exactly how this will sound when properly recorded and mixed, but the first thing that I notice is George Clarke’s vocals, which seem to be delivered in a more traditional black-metal style than his vocals on Sunbather; here they snarl and snap rather than floating. Those edges might be smoothed over on the studio version, but I hope not, because I like their fully embodied presence here. The rest of the track hews fairly closely to the Sunbather model, which is also perfectly fine with me: I would be totally OK with one more album that sounds like this. Or even just one more song. Listen.

Justin Timberlake Says His Solo Career Was Inspired By Kid A
Jul 30, 2014 10:54am | StereoGum

GQ just published one of those best-albums-of-the-young-century features, and in addition to their own picks, they solicited the opinions of their honorees. So Daft Punk heralds the Strokes’ Is This It, Beck sings the praises of M.I.A.’s Arular, Jamie xx reminds us that it’s been a while since we’ve listened to the Streets’ Original Pirate Material, Karen O admires the first Liars record, and Ezra Koenig big-ups both Stankonia and the Dirty Projectors’ The Glad Fact. (“It was my one and only published music review. Ha.”) Most notably, Justin Timberlake explains that D’Angelo’s Voodoo and Radiohead’s Kid A were altering his perspective back at the height of *NSYNC. Here’s Timberlake’s full bit:

Lana Del Rey Ultraviolence Video
Jul 30, 2014 10:49am | StereoGum

Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence is one of the year’s best albums, in no small part due to its eerie, controversial title track. Now director Francesco Corrozzini has delivered a clip for “Ultraviolence” that’s strikingly simple in its depiction of Del Rey wandering around the great outdoors in a wedding dress. An epic song deserves an epic video, and personally I’m feeling a little underwhelmed by this one. Watch it below and decide for yourself.

Listen: Bellows Funny Things
Jul 30, 2014 10:40am | CMJ


Bellows is the project of Oliver Kalb, a member of Brooklyn DIY collective The Epoch. We shared his slight, stretchy single For Rock Dove, off his sophomore LP, Blue Breath, back in June. Now, Blue Breath is set to drop on vinyl at the end of August and Bellows has shared another single to stream, Funny Things. The track is more maximalist than what we’ve heard previously, with climbing harmonies and gruffly whispered vocals atop a shifting onslaught of guitar stabs. Listen below and check out Bellows’ upcoming show dates after that.

Tour Dates For Bellows:
08/22 – Brooklyn NY – Silent Barn w/ Jawbreaker Reunion, Little Foot, & IAN
08/29 – Brooklyn NY – Shea Stadium w/ Stargazy, The Ugly Club, & Terrible Terrible (Record Release Show)
08/30 – Purchase College, NY
08/31 – Washington DC – The Black Cat w/ Spoonboy
09/01 – Baltimore MD
09/02 – Pittsburgh PA w/ Fun Home
09/03 – Utica NY

09/05 – Bard College
09/06 – Troy NY – Ground Zero
09/07 – New Brunswick NJ – Circuit City w/ Long Beard & Fraternal Twin

Pharmakon Announces Bestial Burden Album With Grotesque Artwork
Jul 30, 2014 10:39am | StereoGum

Last year, the noise artist Margaret Chardiet released Abandon, her debut album as Pharmakon. It was a searing piece of work that landed her spots on our lists of the Best New Artists Of 2013 and the 50 Best Albums Of 2013. It included only four songs and clocked in at barely more than 20 minutes, but it ended up being one of my very favorite albums of last year — and a year later, my admiration has only increased.

Watch: Lana Del Reys video for Ultraviolence
Jul 30, 2014 10:38am | Cosequence Of Sound

Perhaps Im reading far too much into this, but Id venture to say that Lana Del Rey has been telling a story with the videos from her excellent new album, Ultraviolence. The tale began with the visuals for “West Coast”, which captured a care-free Del Rey sauntering around a beach with her youtful beau. Then came the clip for “Shades of Cool”, wherein Del Rey left behind the sand and sun to engage in a love affair with an older man. It makes me wonder whether “West Coast” was some kind of romantic dalliance, or had Del Rey actually ended her callow existence for a life of monogamy? (Or, maybe shes actually immortal and both clips are the same love affair merely years apart. Dun dun dun.)

No matter, we get the next chapter in the Del Rey saga with the video for the albums title track. The grainy clip, which looks like it was shot on a busted Super 8 camera, finds Del Rey donning a wedding gown as she makes her way to a church. Has she finally accepted a life of commitment? Is this perhaps her fantasies whilst still wandering the beach? And just who does Del Rey turn to face at the clips finale? Either way, I am more entertained than that week I spent watching Passions with an ex-girlfriend.

Watch: Homer Simpson stars in Mac DeMarcos video for Chamber of Reflection
Jul 30, 2014 10:35am | Cosequence Of Sound

In April, indie-rock maestro and all-around chill bro Mac DeMarco released Salad Days, an easy-going record full of breezy love songs and clean-toned guitar antics. One of the album’s tracks, “Chamber of Reflection”, has now receive a music video and, like most DeMarco videos, it’s a weird one.

The video, which DeMarco jokingly claims is, “an honor, Al Pacino has directed our newest video”, follows the sad journey of a woman wearing a Homer Simpson mask. Her journey is met by psychedelic, low budget visual effects, and soundtracked by a slowed version of “Chamber of Reflection”. While the song already meandered at a relaxed paced, its “chopped & screwed” new look gives it a syrupy lethargy. Watch it below.



Song : Kamp! : Early Days
Jul 30, 2014 10:34am | My Old Kentucky Blog

After being on the fantastic Portugal label Discotexas, Polish electronic pop trio Kamp! have migrated over to the equally fantastic Cascine. They will be releasing a new 3-track EP, Baltimore, on August 26th. The first song from it is the ’90s club-heavy “Early Days” creating images of dark space fluttering with flashing strobes and one night stands on the dancefloor. Stream it below.


Bill Callahan becomes the moon in Javelin Unlanding music video
Jul 30, 2014 10:31am | Chart Attack

Fans of The Mighty Boosh's Moon character and also Bill Callahan will love Bill Callahan's new video "Javelin Unlanding," taken from the new album Dream River from the Billest of Callahans ever, Mr. Bill Callahan. Using the same technology pioneered by freaky Quebecois children's shows, directors Hanly Banks and Chris Rusch insert Bill into our favorite celestial body so he can sing at our clay/plasticine earth and maybe find his dream date from a different pile of rocks.

Bill Callahan's new album Dream River is out now via Drag City.

S Vampires (Swim Good Remix)
Jul 30, 2014 10:28am | StereoGum

Canadian producer Swim Good gave us the exquisite S. Carey/Daniela Andrade collab “Grand Beach” this year, after which S — the project of Carissa’s Weird member Jenn Ghetto — released the urgently shimmering “Vampires.” I wouldn’t have predicted the two projects to intersect, but Swim Good’s “Vampires” remix is predictably great. He gives the song an extreme makeover, reimagining the chiming, guitar-driven Cool Choices track as a sweeping dream-state slow-burn. It’s very cool. Listen to it!

Morrissey bodyguard claims he was asked to get rid of super fan; Moz calls story vexatious lie
Jul 30, 2014 10:25am | Fact Magazine

Murder is Murder.

Back in May before cancelling his tour and blaming his opener Morrissey was attacked on stage by an over-eager fan (is there any other type of Morrissey fan?), causing Moz’s team to hire extra security.

Bodyguard Bradley Steyn signed on, but as he alleges in a new lawsuit, he quickly became uncomfortable with what Morrissey and his team had in mind. According to the suit, Morrissey asked if there was a way the fan who runs Morrissey-solo.com “could get hurt.” The tour manager went even further, asking if he “could be gotten rid of,” discussing plans to find the fan’s home address.

Steyn claims that he refused to comply and was fired the next day. This is not the first time Morrissey has tangled with Morrissey-Solo owner David Tseng, banning him from attending his concerts back in 2011. [via TMZ]

Update: Morrissey has taken to semi-official site True To You to issue a statement, calling Steyn’s story “a vexatious lie.” Here’s an excerpt:

“The very idea that I would ask a complete stranger (Bradley Steyn) to physically attack David Tseng surely cannot register with any sane person as being likely. As mildly irritating as David Tseng may be, he is not someone who troubles me enough to even bother with...


Janelle Monáe Electric Lady Video
Jul 30, 2014 10:22am | StereoGum

Janelle Monáe’s blast of an album, The Electric Lady, came out almost a year ago. So it’s a bit of a surprise to be getting a video for its title track today — but hey, any Janelle Monáe-related news is good news, right? The video shows Monáe going to an Electro Phi Beta sorority party (emeritus members include Kimbra and T-Boz), which eventually turns into choreographed dancing, because of course it does. The whole thing looks like a hell of a lot of fun, and you can watch it below.
