Ultimate Painting Ten Street (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 30, 2014 9:04am | StereoGum

Young British rockers James Hoare (of Veronica Falls) and Jack Cooper (of Mazes) made a record together under the name Ultimate Painting, and they’re coming to America to promote it this October. “Ten Street,” the single they’re sharing today, is a rambling groove that exists on the same slipshod continuum as Lou Reed and Pavement. At the end, it descends into a dramatic barebones piano outro, but mostly it just rolls along with a pleasantly casual verve. Listen below.

UK trio DEMS releasing debut LP (watch a video)
Sep 30, 2014 9:00am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Andrew Sacher

still from "Sense Of An Ending" video

London trio DEMS make the kind of lush, echo-y sounds that are equal parts reverby dream pop and downtempo electronics. There's a little James Blake/Bon Iver in there, and a bit of the first How to Dress Well album too. Their first album, Muscle Memory, comes out November 3 via Sew In Love Records, and we've got the premiere of the video for its track "Sense Of An Ending." It's built around the line "And I must go back and tell the story of love" which repeats and repeats as the music builds up and fades away in a way that suggests there's some post-rock influence here too. Check it out for yourself below.

Stream: Weezers new album Everything Will Be Alright In The End
Sep 30, 2014 8:58am | Cosequence Of Sound

Weezer will release their ninth studio album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, on October 7th via Republic Records. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full via iTunes Radio.

Everything Will Be Alright In The End sees the band reunited with producer Ric Ocasek, who previously helmed 1994’s Blue Album and 2001’s Green Album. Spanning 11 tracks, it includes “Back to the Shack” as the lead single and “Go Away”, a collaboration with Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino.

In his review of the album, our own Dan Caffrey said, “For the first time since The Green Album, [Weezer] retreated to their heads and set out to prove something instead of just indulging every playful genre experiment on [Rivers] Cuomos mind.”

He added: “Cuomo isnt the brooding, isolated man he was when he wrote ‘Say It Aint So’ and ‘Across the Sea’. Yet in revisiting those times, in trying to get back in touch with that man, he and the rest of Weezer have created something thats completely unique to their catalog, a record that tries its damnedest to feel alienated by the conflicts of the past, but discovers that its actually at peace with them.”

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.

Pharrell It Girl Video
Sep 30, 2014 8:56am | StereoGum

The famous Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami produced Pharrell’s video for “It Girl,” the bubblefunk groove that ends his G I R L album, but you would probably know that even if it wasn’t right there in the credits. The whole thing screams Murakami: the colors, the overstimulating image-barrage, the visual anime and video-game quotes, the generally pervy undertones. Fantasista Utamaro directed the video, in which a vision of Pharrell appears to a crew of anime schoolgirls, and then they all take off in a whale-shaped spaceship. Or something. It’s a thing to behold, anyway. Check it out below.

Jon Hopkins Form By Firelight (Feat. Raphaelle Standell)
Sep 30, 2014 8:52am | StereoGum

Jon Hopkins has spent the past year-and-a-half messing around with tracks from his album, Immunity, whether handing them off to friends to remix or adding new vocals to certain tracks. In a few weeks, he’ll release a new EP called Asleep Versions that continues to see him adding and subtracting to his existing songs. One such track is a new version of “Form By Firelight” (which debuted on BBC Radio last week) that features vocals from Braids member Raphaelle Standell. She’s allowed none of the theatrics or vocal leaps that usually make up her own songs; instead, she fades into the rest of the music and becomes another instrument for Hopkins to toy with. Listen below.

Stream Second Storeys dualistic debut album Double Divide
Sep 30, 2014 8:51am | Fact Magazine

Previously known as Al Tourettes, Alec Storey revealed his Second Storey project last year with the Margosa Heights EP.

Now his eagerly-awaited debut full-length is complete, and it’s described as a “massive statement,” influenced by Autechre and Aphex Twin while retaining a sharp dancefloor focus. You can hear the whole thing below, and work out for yourself how much Storey’s production has transformed since his early 12″s on Apple Pips and Aus.

Double Divide will be released on October 6 via Houndstooth, and you can pre-order via iTunes or from the label directly.


Arca has produced the next Bjork album
Sep 30, 2014 8:51am | Fact Magazine

In the new issue of The Fader, Arca reveals that he’s “the sole producer” of Bjork‘s new album.

Arca has released a brace of acclaimed solo records, but is best known for working on Kanye West’s Yeezus and FKA Twigs’ LP1. Earlier this month he announced his debut album Xen, which is due on Mute.

You can read the piece here. Arca has also released a new video, produced by regular collaborator Jesse Kanda for Xen‘s lead track ‘Thievery’. You can watch it below – it’s fairly NSFW.

Bjork, it’s worth noting, went to watch PC Music artists GFOTY and Danny L. Harle in London last week – she’s clearly keeping her eyes open for new producers.

Self Defense Family expand tour, playing Iron Pier CMJ show with Walter Schreifels and Deep Pockets (BV co-presents)
Sep 30, 2014 8:44am | Brooklyn Vegan

It's very possible that Self Defense Family are the most prolific band in post-hardcore at the moment. This year alone they've released the Try Me LP, the I Tried To Make Something You Would Enjoy single, the Two Genuine Oddities From Our Distant Past single, the split with "Meredith Hunter" (aka Self Defense Family), and most recently the Duets EP. Plus there's the "Indoor Wind Chimes" b/w "Cottaging" single due 10/14 via Deathwish and a split with Touche Amore is in the works.

We recently mentioned that they're also touring soon and though a NYC date wasn't initially announced, we're now proud to announce that they'll be here for the Iron Pier CMJ showcase (the label that put out Duets), which BrooklynVegan is co-presenting. It happens October 23 at the Acheron (57 Waterbury St) and also on the bill is post-hardcore veteran Walter Schreifels (of Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Quicksand, Rival Schools and more) with his band The Dead Heavens. And quality locals Deep Pockets are opening. $12 tickets for the showcase go on sale today (9/30) at noon.

BV is also co-presenting the free No Sleep CMJ showcase and we have more showcases TBA too so stay tuned for that.

The day after Acheron, SDF will be in NJ with Restorations (tix). Updated list of their dates, with a full stream of Duets (via AltPress), below...

Premature Evaluation: Weezer Everything Will Be Alright In The End
Sep 30, 2014 8:35am | StereoGum

The first single from Weezer’s new album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, opens with an apology. That song, of course, is “Back To The Shack,” and that apology is contrite: “Sorry guys, I didn’t realize that I needed you so much/ I thought I’d get a new audience, I forgot that disco sucks/ I ended up with nobody and I started feeling dumb/ Maybe I should play the lead guitar and Pat should play the drums.”
